Why stay in a castle in Tuscany?

Vacations in Tuscany with kids can become even more magical and engaging if you sleep inside an authentic medieval castle.

  • You can discover together with your children a piece of Tuscany’s history. Our region is full of villages and testimonies of the Middle Ages, a period that represents an important piece of Tuscany’s history.
  • You will experience from the inside a real medieval fairy tale, entering a castle village where really many people lived centuries ago. This is a fascinating experience both historically and culturally, which for children will be truly magical.
  • You will discover the stories of people who actually lived in the room where you sleep, literally stepping into the past! Artisans, farmers and housewives who spent their lives, ate and slept right where you will be.

A vacation in Tuscany with kids will therefore become even more fun and fascinating by sleeping in a medieval castle village. The little ones are able to appreciate the magic and charm of stories of yesteryear more than anyone else-you’ll be giving them a huge gift by offering them this vacation!

Gargonza Castle for your vacation in Tuscany with kids

Gargonza Castle is the perfect location to take your family for a vacation in Tuscany with kids.
It is located halfway between Siena and Arezzo, two cities that we recommend you visit because they are full of attractions even for the little ones. In addition, it is nestled in the forests of the Val di Chiana so it is perfect for exploring Tuscan nature as well, with its hills and trails in the green to do on foot or by bike.

Gargonza Castle is perfectly preserved so it will really be like living a medieval fairy tale for your children. The castle is surrounded by an entire village with streets, alleys and buildings typical of that period so you will be able to walk inside a medieval village as it once was. Every room and apartment has been kept intact in its main features so you will find elements of the original medieval building. And all the apartments still bear the name of the people who lived there in the Middle Ages. During your vacation in Tuscany with children it will be a fun pastime to discover with your children the stories of Pietrino, Niccolina, Nando, Nerina and all the other protagonists of the village of Gargonza.
