Located over the rolling hills of Tuscany, the Castle of Gargonza is a fortified village dating back to the 1200's, only 10 minutes from Monte San Savino, near Arezzo. Enclosed within the ancient city walls, the apartments have the trademark of country life that was maintained thanks to the careful restoration efforts of the property owner Roberto Guicciardini Corsi Salviati. Today, the Castle of Gargonza welcomes guests within the village's homes and ancient olive press cellars; offering rooms and apartments, halls and meeting rooms, a bar and restaurant, common areas, gardens and a panoramic swimming pool, within one of the most stunning areas of Tuscany.

 

The Castle consists of:
Rooms and apartments with bed & breakfast service
A restaurant featuring typical Tuscan cuisine
Halls for business conferences and small meetings
A swimming pool for moments of relaxation
And a Romanic church for weddings and ceremonies.
All surrounded by a landscape which displays the rare beauty and tranquility that has come to characterize of the rolling hills of Monte San Savino and Arezzo. The Castle of Gargonza is the ideal setting for those who wish a quiet retreat, far from the fast pace of the city and crowded areas, where you may enjoy the pleasure of a good book, strolls amidst nature, and small villages rich with the artistic history of the Tuscan hills, as well as the opportunity to savor the delicacies of traditional Tuscan meals and wines.

 

The rooms of the Castle of Gargonza are located over various buildings within the village. There are 13 buildings which maintain their authentic structure and original atmosphere thanks to a careful restoration process. The comforts are modern while the atmosphere retains the feel of a long ago. There are three types of accommodations; comfort, classic, and superior, housing from one to four guests in utmost comfort.
