Nestled high in the hills between the Chiana and Arno valleys, this tiny hamlet has been authentically restored to an exacting standard by its American owners. A spacious magical place that can sleep up to 18 guests, but very cosy for a smaller number.
Private without being remote, Il Borgo sits in the middle of over one thousand acres of vineyards, olive groves and farmland, with spectacular views of the valleys beyond. The house is strategically located to provide easy access in under two hours to practically every major attraction in Tuscany. Food shops are less than 10 minutes away, and there is a quick direct train service to Florence from the same village.
The property is situated on six fully landscaped acres and features an 8 x 16 meter swimming pool with waterfall; children’s wading pool; pool house with shower, and changing room; wood burning beehive pizza oven and outdoor patios for al fresco dining.
During your stay, get to know our distinctive corner of Tuscany on foot or horseback. The hills surrounding Il Borgo contain numerous trails to explore. Hike or ride through acres of olive trees, past vineyards and up wooded hillsides. The property lies within a thousand acre game reserve; you may catch a glimpse of pheasants, hares, deer, woodpeckers and reclusive wild boar, all of which abound nearby. It is a feast for all the senses. Enjoy the area’s distinctive aromas. Walk through the orchard and pick ripe apricots, cherries, pears and apples right off the tree. Our signature fruit is the blackberry, which ripens in profusion every August. September brings sun-warmed figs and wild grapes.
Wine tasting can be arranged at local vineyards. Cooking classes are also available, either focusing on a particular dish, or the preparation of a complete meal. Local honey and olive oil also available.
There are several very good restaurants within 25 minutes of Il Borgo: a full list is available at the property.
