Il Borgo di Galenda

Who doesn’t sometimes dream of retreating to a quiet village in Tuscany? It’s possible at the Il Borgo di La Galenda – at least for a dream vacation – because here you will find peace and relaxation far from the crowds. The idyllic village of La Galenda in Chianti Classico, which was first mentioned in the 11th Century, was lavishly restored in 2005. The two apartments Bellini and Lippi are located in the historic part of the village. Behind the old stone walls and within classic Tuscan architecture you’ll find luxurious rooms with handmade terracotta floors, open beamed ceilings, and doors and windows made of chestnut wood. While swimming in the pool, which is just a few steps away from the apartments, you can enjoy the view of the surrounding hills. And if you yearn for art and culture: many sights lie within easy reach.

What to do

Discover the surroundings of the Chianti Classico: wine tasting, a visit to picturesque hamlets and small villages (Radda in Chianti, Giaole in Chianti), Siena (30 min), Florence (1 hour), cycling (the vintage bike race "Eroica" is a must in October!), hiking, or justing on one of the traditional "piazza" to have a good glas of wine!

Why we like this house

  1. Ich war für eine kurze Woche mit Freunden dort. Wunderbare Ruhe in wunderbar unaufgeregtem Ambiente.
    Die Lage: Mehr Toskana, mehr Chianti geht nicht! Die Architektur: Ein altes kleines Dorf mit viel Liebe und Respekt renoviert, es gibt alle Annehmlichkeiten, die auch eine Reise dorthin im Winter für mich sehr attraktiv erscheinen lassen.
    Alles in allem: Ich fahre sicher wieder mal hin.

  2. Galenda ist ein tolles Anwesen mit architektonischem Anspruch, der sich in der Wahrung der historischen Bausubstanz vermischt mit stilvollem modernen Innenausbau präsentiert.

    Wir hatten zwei fantastische Wochen des Entspannens die viel zu schnell vergangen sind und einen sehr sympathischen Gastgeber.
    Gerne wieder!
