A stunning, vast estate in the unspoiled southeastern Tuscan countryside.


Unparalleled views characterize the Borgo estate comprised of several groupings of villas and apartments spread across over 2000 agricultural acres. The main building, a 10 minute drive from the Borgo properties, was once the private villa of the owners. The villa's formal English-style gardens date back to the 1920`s. This enchanting estate is in the Val d`Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Location

Picture-postcard views of rolling hills dotted with cypress trees. Excursions to the well-known medieval towns are easy, whether you enjoy wine-tasting, savoring the riches of Tuscan cuisine, hiking you can savor the best that Tuscany has to offer. Imagine a leisurely lunch and wine tasting in Montalcino, a visit to the Etruscan ruins nearby, back for a dip in the pool, cocktails at sunset and dinner at one of the many country restaurants nearby.


Exterior

This set of apartments is located in handsome stone building a 5-minute drive from the main road. A central courtyard is planted with a fragrant lime tree, lavender and roses. Patio furniture is in the garden during summer months. Self-service laundry room with washer, dryer on ground floor. 


Included in each apartment: Toiletries, hair dryers, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, laundry detergent. Mid-week change of bath towels. Basic grocery items, complimentary bottle of wine and olive oil. Map of local hikes and walks.

On request: Additional housekeeping. Welcome dinner. Gourmet cooking class.

Activities: Pool. Tennis. Playground. Beautiful walks, both up into the oak and beech woods, and down into the crete senesi, the unique clay hillocks that characterize the Val d`Orcia landscape. In late July an outstanding chamber music festival, Incontri in Terra di Siena, is held at the Castelluccio. On site manager can advise you on restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing. Some of the most beautiful Renaissance, Romanesque, Medieval and Etruscan sites are close by, and in summer, digs for an Etruscan necropolis are ongoing in the field next to the main Borgo villa.

On Request:  Private guided tours of Tuscan treasures. Swimming in volcanic hot water pools. Riding in Val d`Orcia. Mountain biking.


Interior

Beco is spacious and comfortably furnished. Living room has a working fireplace. 


The eat-in kitchen is especially Tuscan with the old hearth addiing character. It is traditional in appearance with travertine table tops and an open fireplace but is set up for a keen and experience cook.


The size of the living room and the kitchen makes it possible for them to be used for events such as family reunions, important birthdays or other get togethers for 10 -15 people, staying in different apartments.


For larger groups, the Beco apartment can be connected to the Fonte apartment via a shared door.

We absolutely LOVED staying at Borgo.

by Nancy F

The Tiglio apartment was perfect for our family of 4, my husband and I and our 2 adult children. The setting was idyllic, could not have asked for a better introduction to the Tuscan countryside. The grounds are expansive and a swim in the pool was so refreshing. Our host was incredibly welcoming and so helpful to us in recommending restaurants, and even called around for us to book reservations. We were pleased to find in the kitchen, a welcome basket--bottle of wine, loaf of bread, meat and cheese and of course, olive oil from the estate. We were lucky enough to have the olive oil tasting dinner the first night we arrived. It was such a pleasure to meet the owner, and hear about the estate and the oils produced there. Our stay was much too short as we spent most days exploring the countryside, but it was so nice to come home to Tiglio at the end of the day. The whole time we kept talking about going back with extended family. I would highly recommend this property! We also booked another property with Italy perfect, which was also wonderful. I would'nt hesitate to book any property through Italy Perfect. It was easy and perfect, start to finish!

Borgo Beco Review

by Annette and Eric
When it came time to book our Tuscany countryside lodging, I contacted Italy Perfect. I booked a Rome apartment 7 years ago and loved the ease of working with Lisa and team. Like the apartment in Rome, the lodging was amazing. The location is postcard perfect, the host Lorena a doll and the accommodations were clean and roomy for our group of 6. The property is perfect for all ages with a pool that has an incredible view of the rolling hills. Try to be onsite for the most beautiful sunsets. The proximity to every town small and large is manageable. Montepulciano is a must for the scenery, wine and food. Thanks again Italy Perfect for making the daunting task of finding the perfect lodging so easy.

Borgo Beco Review

by Marcie
Perfect information, perfect service, perfect vacation! I have lived in Rome, Italy for two years many years ago and have spent a great deal of time there. I found the Italy Perfect website, knowing exactly what I wanted. Italy Perfect was able to give me a great deal of detailed information about the rental apartment. Their notes prior to our leaving were extremely detailed and helpful. I will certainly return to them in the future. I am completely confident that anyplace rented through Italy Perfect will be...perfect! [What can we say when we have perfect guests! The Italy Perfect Team]

Borgo Beco Review

by Jennifer A.
We recently stayed at Borgo. Our family of 4 was in Beco and my mother stayed in Tiglio. Borgo is an extraordinary destination, and the apartments there are beautiful. They are located in a historic farmhouse on the estate, and are a lovely combination of old Tuscan feel and modern comforts. Our apartment was very comfortable, with a great kitchen and living areas. We were there in June and even though the weather had been very hot in Rome and Venice, it was so pleasant in the hills at Borgo, and we were amazed to be able to sleep with windows open at night. The estate has stunning views with olive orchards, woods and gardens. When combined with the views of the surrounding landscape – cypress trees, ancient hilltop towns and Monte Amiata in the distance – you feel as if you are in a movie. The staff at Borgo is gracious and welcoming, the food is wonderful, and the garden tour should not be missed. Finally, its location is perfect for day trips to any number of beautiful towns. We highly recommend Borgo for an unforgettable trip.

Base Nightly Rates – May Not Include Fees such as Greeting, Cleaning, Damage Waiver, Credit Card Processing and Tourist Taxes. For full price, please put in dates.
