Description

Elegant and aristocratic, Villa Il Borro sits atop a hill looking out over a medieval village and Tuscan hills beyond.

Dating back to the 19th century, the property has been lovingly restored to its former glory over a number of years. Once you’ve swept up the long, cypress-lined driveway, through imposing gates, into a piazza with pretty fountain, and then indoors to the spectacular hall and its marble staircase, you’ll feel like master of all you survey. Four poster beds, beautiful antiques and hand-sewn tapestries give this very regal property a welcoming feel.

The villa is ideal for large groups to share, with spacious living and billiard rooms in which to socialise, a study and meeting room for quieter moments and luxury bedrooms you’ll be happy to retire to when you want to spend a peaceful couple of hours snoozing under a book. A fitness suite with sauna and private pools, both indoors and out, offer plenty of opportunity to both work up a sweat and recharge your batteries, too.

Located as it is on a 700-hectare medieval estate, guests of Villa Il Borro can also benefit from all there is to offer across the estate, including at the five-star hotel, be it the impressive spa, wineries, shop selling estate olive oil, or the activities that can be arranged, from horse-riding to golf. But once behind your own gates, in the privacy of the villa’s park, you’ll feel like the only people here. Two gardens, including one formal Italian renaissance-style garden mean you’ll have as much room to wander, glass of estate wine in hand, as you could wish for. With the attentive villa and hotel staff always available to attend to your every need, views which words and photographs can do no justice and your own private villa fit for Italian aristocracy, a stay at Villa Il Borro will give you a true renaissance.

Eating

Food is central to the experience at Villa Il Borro. The estate the villa overlooks includes the Il Borro Tuscan bistro with adjoining cafe, the Vin Cafe ideal for a casual light meal and a glass of wine at any time of day and the Osteria dell Borro, an exclusive restaurant serving traditional Tuscan dishes.

Breakfast is included in your stay at this luxury villa and whether you choose to dine in at your villa or at the Tuscan Bistro each morning, the choice is yours.

At lunchtime, enjoy a relaxed Tuscan style buffet for as long as you care to in one of the estate’s restaurants. Then, in the evening, you may wish to hire a private chef who will be pleased to cook up an Italian feast for you, whether you want a formal celebratory five-course meal or simple but delicious home-cooked favourites. Or if you would prefer to enjoy fine dining in the comfort of your villa throughout your stay, it is possible to hire one of Il Borro’s international chefs to be at your disposal.

Please note breakfast is included but chefs, lunch and evening meals will be charged for separately.
