The agriturismo

Historic house immersed in the peace and quiet of an age-old park surrounded by green hills in the heart of the Chianti area, turned into an agriturismo thanks to painstaking conservation work to enhance its distinctive features. In addition to elegant rooms spread between the castle and the tower, guests can also stay in spacious apartments in the farmhouse, with private entrance and terrace. The renovation has also guaranteed comfort in the accommodation, from air conditioning to satellite TV.

The accommodation

The agriturismo has 10 rooms and suites in the castle and the tower.  plus 6 rooms and 5  self-contained apartments in the Borgo, renovated respecting the original rural building where the Romantic and Medieval periods intertwine harmoniously. There is also a luxury independent cottage with private garden a jacuzy at 50 mt from the castle

The  house is made of stone and each apartment enjoys a beautiful view.
Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchenette and a terrace or outdoor area. The apartments are particularly suitable for families and are equipped with bed linen and towels with a mid-week change and cleaning.

The furnishings in the rooms are strictly period and the bathrooms have travertine fittings and large two-person showers. There are also several modern amenities such as air conditioning, minibar, telephone and satellite TV. The building is completed by an intimate lounge that offers the perfect environment in which to relax and read a good book.

The typical Tuscan cuisine is another feather in the cap for the agriturismo, prepared with the greatest respect for local authenticity.

The ancient prison in the tower has been converted into a wine cellar, where connoisseurs, but also the less experienced, can sample the Chianti Classico di Tornano and the excellent olive oil.

Activities and surrounding

The agriturismo offers guests the opportunity to:

- Use the large swimming pool, fun for both kids and grown-ups
- Relax in the whirlpool tub
- Follow the chef on tempting typical Tuscan cookery courses
- Taste Chianti wine accompanied by bruschetta with extra virgin oil, produced on the farm

The agriturismo is the ideal location to celebrate a wedding or as a destination for a honeymoon.

Hi, my name is Fabiola and I am 44 years old.
Here I am with my sister, PATRIZIA
I have been managing Castello di Tornano since 1996 with my sister.
We take care of: we welcome the guests, we are responsible for communication, we take care of the crops.
It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests especially like the warm family welcome.
