The hotel offers a wide variety of accommodation, from elegant suites, tucked away within the village, to luxury villas and farmhouses spread far and wide. For the ultimate treat, Villa Il Borro is sumptuous and splendid, while Villa Casetta is surrounded by Merlot vineyards. Then, there’s Villa Marnia – a 19th-century residence just a 20-minute hop from the renaissance delights of Florence. Choose villa or farmhouse and you’ll enjoy splendid isolation and a host of standout facilities, including a private pool. Or, if you opt for a suite in the village – perfect for couples – you’ll be treated to simple yet stylish interiors complemented by gorgeous views of the Tuscan countryside.

Days here can be as action-packed or laid-back as you like, with a wide choice of activities designed to suit all tastes. If you prefer to take things easy, the spa offers a wide range of treatments, from standalone massages to facials and wraps, alongside the likes of yoga classes and even weeklong wellness retreats. Other activities include golf, tennis, bike rides and country hikes, while for those that like their wines, guided tastings are a wonderful way to get acquainted with the local varietals. 

Which leads us on the food – a special highlight. There are the refined, seasonal menus and world-leading wines of Osteria del Borro – a gourmet’s favourite headed up by executive chef Andrea Campani. And, for delicious all-day dining, Il Borro Tuscan Bistro offers delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners, with menus and interiors inspired by its Florentine namesake.
