It was love at first sight, with this magical place
Our family has always lived in this fascinating territory in the heart of beautiful Tuscany.
For us, everything here is full of memories, scents and smells that are familiar. The fresh scent of the grass takes us back in time, to the days when our parents took us for a walk along the Via Francigena that leads to San Gimignano. During one of those family walks there was an encounter with what is now Il Borghetto, at that time a magical and mysterious place surrounded by bush and brambles after decades of neglect. It was love at first sight, with this magical place which for us children had an irresistible charm, so much so that it became our place for games and incursions. Right here, where we proudly welcome our guests today, we spent some of the most carefree hours of our lives, including all the laughter, joy and wonder of children. Years have passed since those days unencumbered by worry, but we have grown up with the dream of bringing the Villa back to its original splendor.
This is how our story begins, with a deep love for the land in which we live and the people who live there, because it is only through the strength of trust ties that a dream can come true.
One day, after three long years of work, our greatest dream came true, giving new life to Il Borghetto. Each of us has brought our strengths and abilities: Sandra, our irreplaceable pillar for interior design, Riccardo and Nicola as manpower on hand, Simona with her knowledge of the tourism sector, and the whole family together working tirelessly and fearlessly.
The undertaking of this challenge was tough and difficult but now the satisfaction of being able to welcome our guests into the place we love the most is priceless.
At this point, we have been experiencing this wonderful adventure together for more than 20 years and yet for us it always feels as though it is the first day. We are fortunate enough to meet many people from different places and to be able to share our traditions, our culture and our origins with them. With the same joy in their hearts, the children of that time gave way to the adults of today and the dream becomes again and again more of a reality.
