Borgo Rapale is a Tuscan farmhouse complex that was completed in 2004. It is situated on a hilltop and borders a small, medieval castle village. Situated between Siena (approx. 25km) and Arezzo, it boasts stunning views of the Chianti hills and the Ambra Valley. At an altitude of 500 m, cool breezes keep the farmhouse comfortable under the Tuscan sun. Borgo Rapale’s archi-tecture typifies the Tuscan farmhouse style. The farmhouse is immediately adjacent to the proprietor’s villa, which has been inhabited since 1520 and where the family welcomes and entertains guests as friends.
The farmhouse is strategically located near the most important art cities of Tuscany and Umbria. From the farmhouse, it is approximately a 20 minute drive to Siena and about an hour to Florence, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Perugia and Assisi.

Tennis facilities, horseback riding, go-karting, and hot air ballooning are all within a 14 km radius. The Chianti and Brunello wine regions are within 40 km and Italian fashion “factory outlets” such as Prada, Gucci and Ferragamo are within 35 km.
