Description

The space

The Cottage is homed in a beautiful converted Medieval Barn, located on top of the Chianti hills, surrounded by olive trees, wine groves and woods, at just 20 minutes from the center of Florence and 40 minutes from Siena. Beside is our Country Inn (opened seasonally), our Winery (we also produce Awarded Red Wines and Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and our private house is close by.
From April up to November guests can also reserve for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Country Inn.

Guest access

The Cottage is located in the garden of our property and has an outside patio for private use. A vast flower garden surrounds the Cottage and a common swimming pool is available for our guests during summer/hot season. Walking through the wineyard, the olive grove and woods is relaxing and regenerating, and you will be amused by breath-taking views.

Interaction with guests

We can plan cultural and gastronomic itineraries. We organize cycling tours in the Chianti area and in Tuscany. Winetastings and visit to our cellar is also a special experience you can book for. A special "Home Address Book" is available in the Cottage with infos about restaurants, markets and other special places for you to plan exciting gastronomy trips in Tuscany.
We organize Bike Tours and Cooking Courses too.
In the surroundings is easy to book for Horse rides, reserve for Tennis or Golf courts or having an exciting Hot-air Balloon trip.

The neighbourhood

Apart from The Cottage, the Agritourism and our private House you will be totally immersed in the nature.

Getting around

Driving here by car is highly recommended as the property in in the middle of the countryside and it's not really served with public transportation.
You can easily hire a car at the Airport or at Florence Train Sation.

Other things to note

The famed Etruscan Tomb of the Archer is located inside the property and it's worth a visit for being an archeological site that matters, dating back to the 7th century B.C.

We had a wonderful and comfortable stay in Ilaria's charming cottage last week. Our sons 7 and 11 made twice daily use of the pool and give it a two thumbs up review! The staff (hi Carol and Christina) were amazingly helpful in making recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit. The location is marvellous and we managed to pack a fair amount of touring into our week -San Gimignano is a half hour drive, Siena a little further and Firenze is only 20 minutes away. There's also a lovely walk through the olive grove behind the house up to the Etruscan tomb of the archer. We're planning to return again as there's still lots left to see in this magical part of Italy - plus we have yet to sample the wine produced by Il Borghetto...a must for our next visit!

Il Borghetto is a little piece of heaven on earth. We were 2 couples staying in the cottage on the property, and we could not have been happier. This place is truly magical; we would go back in a heartbeat. The views! The pool! The cottage! All was perfect. The staff is wonderfully kind and helpful, making dinner reservations for us and suggesting places to visit whenever we asked. We did a wine tour and tasting on our last night there, and it was wonderful. HIGHLY recommended.
