Castello di Gargonza
Gargonza Castle is nestled inside the heart of the Tuscan region on a hill dominant in the Chianti Valley. Upon entering the small village, you'll find yourself entering a gate of the 13th century into a piazetta where you find a Roman Church endowed with a bell tower and mullioned windows. There are medieval buildings leaned out into narrow alleys and lanes filled with homes and gardens. Even today, the village homes maintain the names of the original inhabitants: Fattore, Niccolina the seamstress, and Celso the gamekeeper. It is surrounded entirely by woods, grape-vines, olive trees, and rolling hills. Gargonza is a village that was brought back to life thanks to the love of Roberto Guicciardini Corsi Salviati. The Castle of Gargonza is today a bed and breakfast and vacation homes which come equipped with a swimming pool, a restaurant and meeting rooms.
