Overlooking the Tuscan city of Siena, Borgo Scopeto Relais is a majestic 14th-century estate surrounded on all sides by oak forest, vineyards and olive groves. This immaculately preserved medieval property features 58 guestrooms and suites, all tastefully and traditionally decorated. Some suites and villas have original 17th-century frescoes; others feature four-poster beds, separate living rooms and private gardens. The marble-clad bathrooms are large and luxe, with bathtubs or walk-in rainfall showers. Indulge in a treatment at the Borgo Scopeto Relax spa, which uses beauty products made from the estate’s own oil, wine and honey. Dine on traditional Sienese fare at La Tinaia, a swanky restaurant in the hotel’s ancient cellar. Active types can limber up at the gym, take a dip in the outdoor pool or play a game of tennis on one of the two hard surface courts.
In the Area
Explore the Tuscan countryside in style by renting a Vespa or a vintage Alfa Romeo (the hotel can arrange both), then cruise into nearby Siena – arguably the most romantic city in the world – and make a beeline for the duomo, a 12th-century cathedral with an intricate green, red and white marble façade. After touring the church’s grand Gothic interior, do your taste buds a favor and head to Tre Cristi, a beautifully frescoed seafood-centric restaurant established in 1830. Fashion-savvy travelers will want to visit the Mall, about an hour’s drive from the estate, where you can stock up on discount threads from top Italian brands, including Gucci and Fendi. And make time to explore the Chianti wine region, which is home to tons of vineyards that offer tastings, including the Fattoria Viticcio and the Montefioralle winery.
How to Get There
Words can not describe this lovely hotel. Thank you to the most amazing staff! The food and the venue was superb! The most beautiful bedroom and bathroom, it felt like 5 star luxury. I wish I could have stayed longer!!
Great service from the hotel, nice pools and well kept grounds with fantastic views. Room was well maintained, laundry took a little longer than expected but otherwise all very smooth. Food in the restaurant was great, they were good with allergies, bar man was good during the day and nice spa and massage - we ended up being the only ones in there. Easy to drive to Siena (15mins) and to other parts of Tuscany. Even if they host events like the classic car event held during our stay they still look after their guests.
I adored my time and look forward to my return.
Not too far from Siena. Drive was lovely. Stay longer than a night. A couple of days at least.
Hospitality excellent. Rooms perfect. Staff helpful. Surrounds divine. Spa massage a must!
