Castello di Gargonza
At the top of the mountain, enveloped in a forest is a fairy-tale castle with an ancient village Gargonza spread along the walls of toothed tower.
Thirty-five houses of the village in the similar “castle” style, were rebuilt in the XIII century with white stone and still keep the existing fireplaces and small kitchens with pantries and XVII century furniture. There are also eight normal rooms without a fireplace and kitchen.
The transformation of the village into the hotel complex was the only way for Roberto Guichchardini, whose ancestors were the Lords of the castle in 1700, to preserve the settlement of craftsmen left by local residents in 1960 years.
The central inner courtyard with arched balconies buried in flowers and geraniums is a public living room for visitors. Also, the old building from the pressed olive tree is used as a common guest room with sofas, TV, and a buffet. Outside the medieval walls of the castle is a swimming pool, surrounded by fragrant rosemary bushes and cypress trees. Near the pool an excellent restaurant is located. The current owner of the castle is one of the sons of Count Neri Guichchardini – adding the innovative talent of Tuscan classics.
The cost of accommodation starts from 170 to 230 dollars for the apartments and from $ 170 per night for weekly rent.
