Il Borro Relais & Chateaux
IL BORRO RELAIS & CHATEAUX comprises 2,000 acres of a former eleventh-century
medieval village that sits in the center of a triangle formed by Arezzo, Florence, and Siena. In the early 1990s, the Ferragamo family purchased the property and began its meticulous restoration into a luxury vacation spot for discerning travelers. The family brings to Il Borro the same quality and attention to detail that make them a world-renowned name in fashion. The aim is to allow visitors to experience the feeling of Tuscan life as it has been led for centuries, while at the same time enjoying state-of-the art service and amenities. Accommodations are available at villas and suites, each of which are outfitted with modern kitchens, refrigerator/freezers, dishwashers, dishes and utensils, washing machines, and fully outfitted bathrooms. Farmhouses may also be booked, but they do not offer the same services as the other Il Borro Relais & Chateaux accommodations. The best way to experience the beauty of this estate is to set out on foot and start exploring.
The property includes La Corte Spa, which offers a holistic approach to wellness and beautification, a lovely church, shops selling lo
cal wares, olive groves, and a winery that offers tasting and tours. You can also book an
excursion to a nearby city — Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, and many others are all easy day
trips. The staff will be happy to help you plan, point out the best shopping areas, and suggest places “off the beaten track.” When it comes to dining, you can cook, have meals prepared and delivered, or dine at L’ Osteria del Borro, which offers elegant Tuscan dishes prepared from locally grown ingredients and extra virgin olive oil produced from Il Borro’s five thousand olive trees. Additional dining focusing on regional specialties is available at the Tuscan Bistro and VinCafe. The estate also grows five varieties of grapes to produce four distinctive wines: the reds, Il Borro, Pian di Nova, and Polissena; and one white, Lamelle, which you can order at dinner as well.
