Borgo Portagioia is part of an ancient convent just outside the walls of Siena, offering guests wonderful views, peaceful environment and a deliciously restored country home with Siena terracotta floors, stone walls, beamed ceilings and very beautiful finishing touches. The outside of the apartment offers a well kept garden, a lovely patio with table, chairs and BBQ for outside eating and relaxing. Borgo Portagioia country home Legnaia is an ideal base for taking both short and long breaks. Its key position, only 5 minutes drive from Siena, allows guests to enjoy all the fascinating city has to offer without giving up on peace and privacy only a country home can guarantee. A break at this Siena country house is ideal for taking a language course, enjoying the Palio of Siena, taking wine tasting tours, all of which we can organize for you.
Legnaia, whose name means woodshed, was converted from the original woodshed of Borgo Portagioia, part of an ancient convent. The country home sits on the right corner of the property and is accessed from a welcoming terraced patio at the front of the house. The large arched glass doors lead you right into the large open living area, with lounge, fireplace and fully equipped kitchen. The back of the house hosts a double and a twin bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The front terrace is equipped with table, chairs, loungers, BBQ and umbrellas.
Legnaia shares the entrance gate with just one other independent, 2 bedroom house. Please contact us for details.

We would like to thank you so much for providing the wonderful itineraries in your Borgo la Chiusa booklet. We followed 3 of the "trips" and had a truly fabulous time both driving thru the Tuscan hills and visiting uncrowded sites. And we didn't get lost even once!
We intended on completing the Val di Merse, Montagnola, and Chianti itineraries but we had such a great time everywhere that we only finished parts of Val di Merse and Montagnola and never made it to Chianti!
We spent several hours each at San Galgano, Radiacondoli, Casole d'Elsa, and Pieva Di Penina because they were so beautiful and interesting. There were other places we planned to visit, but we ran out of time, so it just means we have more to come back for!
By the way, the gardens at Centinale were closed for renovation--something else to see when we return. We are definitely slow travelers to Italy and share your love of the beautiful sights and peaceful tranquility Tuscany has to offer.
We especially appreciated Casole d'Elsa because they made it so easy to navigate the scooter up to the hilltop by providing elevators. That was an unexpected treat!
We also again want to thank you and Francesca for helping us navigate our way to Siena--we followed the instructions and for the first time we didn't get lost! We even went back there one more time before leaving Italy!
We would be remiss also If we didn't offer thanks for the wonderful restaurant suggestions. We ate in a bunch of them and found all to be wonderful!
Our two weeks in Tuscany were everything we hoped for and more, and we will be sure to recommend you to any of our friends who are thinking of a Tuscan holiday. Thank you so much.
Arriverderci and Mille Grazie!
