THE TERRITORY

Il Borgo di Terrensano is located in a strategic position about 5 km away from the historic center of Siena, a city declared World Heritage Site in 1995 by UNESCO and famous worldwide for the Palio, for its historical and artistic attractions and cultural value such as Piazza del Campo, the Duomo, the Torre del Mangia and the Baptistery.

Staying in the immediate vicinity of the village, a few steps from the most famous tourist routes, you will still have the opportunity to get to know an exclusive but still little known territory and to discover the landscapes of the Tuscan countryside.

Staying at the Borgo you will in fact have the opportunity to go hiking, horseback riding or bike riding on the famous Via Francigena, in between the green hills of Siena and through vineyards, olive groves and centuries-old holm oaks, reaching the historic Castle of Belcaro, a fortified construction built around to 1190.

Staying at the Borgo means experiencing a unique experience in close contact with nature and the traditions of the past, but not only: if you want to spend a 360 ° holiday in the surroundings you will find other internationally renowned areas within easy reach such as Chianti and its vineyards , the medieval villages of Val d’Elsa, the clayey lands of the Crete Senesi and the natural beauties of the Val D’Orcia.
