We welcome you in our Apartments for your holiday in Tuscany

Our family has always lived in the center of Tuscany. Our ancestors have taught us to love, respect, preserve, and enhance this area of Italy. As children, we lived next to the actual Il Borghetto Tuscan Holidays, a villa which had been abandoned for decades and was in a serious state of disrepair.

This Tuscan Villa was a magical place for us to play. We had always dreamed of restoring il Borghetto to its original splendor.

After 3 years of hard work and restoration, our dream came true. The villa houses various holiday apartments of different sizes, a swimming pool and many common areas, such as the restaurant for our guests. Everyone in our family contributed realize all this: Sandra as architect and decorator, Riccardo and Nicola as the labor force, Simona with her background in tourism, and even Papa and Mama participated with their constant and precious help and encouragement. It was a monumental undertaking, but the family now has the pleasure of being able to welcome our guests to the place we love. The villa has been open now for more than a decade and our enthusiasm is still as great as it was on the first day. It is our great fortune to host so many people in our holiday apartments from all over the world and to share with them our traditions and our culture.
