For a week I stayed in this lovely hilltop castle. The Castle of Gargonza is a fortified village dating back to the 1200's. It is nestled in the heart of the Tuscany Region near Monte San Savino and Arezzo.
In the 1970's the owner Roberto Guicciardini Corsi Salviati renovated the castle and today it is a romantic hotel and Bed & Breakfast.
It has it's own gourmet restaurant on the grounds.
Located 100 kilometers south of Florence, it makes a wonderful place from which to tour the area. Siena, Orvieto, Arezzo, Cartona and Monte San Savino are all within comfortable driving distance.
