HOTEL BORGO SAN FELICE
History & Story
Borgo San Felice is a medieval village dating as far back as 714 AD.
Old documents register a controversy between the bishops of Arezzo and Siena regarding the ownership of the church of S. Felice in Avane (a toponym that reveals a remote Etruscan origin, though there isn’t any further news).
In 998, San Felice was known as Pieve and then in the following centuries it was re-baptized with its original name.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the village became the setting of violent wars between Siena and Florence. In the 18th century, the disputed territory became the property of the noble Del Taja family from Siena. They settled in the manor house that stands in the heart of the village surrounded by narrow streets, squares, Romanesque churches and chapels that make “Borgo San Felice” one of the most charming and picturesque sites in the area.
In 1991 the “village” was restored and transformed into a “diffused hotel”. It soon became a member of the Relais & Chateaux hotel group (1992).
7 brand new rooms are builded close to main church. Also, a new traditional Tuscan restaurant will be open in order to give more choice togehether with the gastronomic restaurant
