Villa "Il Borghetto" is a splendid historic estate at the gates of San Gimignano, completely immersed in the peacefulness of the Tuscan countryside. Nowadays subdivided into apartments and ready to welcome any tourist who wants to be able to experience the essence of Tuscany surrounded by most genuine representation of hospitality and the warmth of a family atmosphere.
Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Il Borghetto is a historic villa that once belonged to the royal Savoy family. Today, it is divided into beautiful holiday apartments surrounded by acres of parkland.
We are located on a hill 4 km away from the medieval village of San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the windows of the apartments there is a breathtaking view that seems to be the canvas of a painting rich with the scents of Tuscany: expanses of vineyards, cypresses and olive trees as far as the eye can see. The soul of Il Borghetto combines the timeless charm of a historic Tuscan residence with the more rural spirit of a country resort in the countryside, thus it is the perfect destination for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday in the Tuscan countryside without giving up the comforts of refined apartments.
In each apartment of the Villa you can breathe in all the history of this ancient home where the classic Tuscan style blends with the finest of taste. Every detail is designed for the comfort and relaxation of guests who can enjoy themselves in privacy and tranquility. The view is so unforgettably beautiful that every glance fills the heart with joy.
Tuscan cuisine is made of simple and genuine ingredients, just like those once carefully prepared by grandmothers in the kitchen at home. And it is precisely this home cooking, with a touch of modernity, that is the protagonist in our Tuscan dinners, where you will be welcomed like a big warm family to taste the delicious recipes of "Mamma Silvana".
Il Borghetto is immersed in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and is surrounded by a wonderful park with a swimming pool where you can enjoy some splendid hours relaxing after your excursions discovering Tuscany.

The history of our family has always been linked to the centuries-old history of the Villa.
Ever since we were children our parents took us for walks along the Via Francigena leading to San Gimignano and that was how we met the Villa for the first time. We had discovered a magical and mysterious place for us to set our children's games and where laughter and joy echoed across all the ancient walls.
It was then that the magic began.
