ABOUT US

The former 18th century villa and hamlet dating from Etruscan times has been sensitively restored to capture the soul of Tuscany through its architecture, culinary and wellness traditions; with a contemporary twist. The privately-owned Borgo offers warm heartfelt hospitality with some of the most commanding views and sunsets throughout Tuscany, alongside its very own modern art gallery.
