Tucked away within the valleys of Chianti, Il Borgo is made up of six restored farmhouses that individually hold anywhere from one to six fully furnished units most of which overlook the peaceful Montespertoli Valley. With only 29 residences for sale and available in 1, 2, or 3-bedroom plans, Il Borgo provides residents with serenity and exclusivity that is non-existent in the big cities of Italy today. Owners will have access to full amenities, including satellite TV, internet, and a full kitchen, plus hotel services if they desire.
Resting on the highest point between Florence and Siena, it’s not only extremely easy to get to both of these historical towns, being within a mere half hour drive from Florence, it’s also less than one hour’s drive from Livorno and Pisa, providing the perfect base from which to embark on exciting explorations of Tuscany.
Il Borgo stands on the grounds of a 17th-century country estate established by Florence’s distinguished Bossi-Pucci family. Over the centuries, the estate became the largest wine producer of Chianti in the region. Its vineyards and olive groves stretch for hundreds of acres. The property’s original park, with its centuries-old shaded trees and graceful open spaces, enhance the magnificent surroundings the residents and guests of Il Borgo will enjoy. The family villa and the celebrated cellars are now restored to their original grace, and several farmhouses, originally built to house Villa Bossi-Pucci’s workers, have been reconstructed and converted to Il Borgo.
Owning a part of Il Borgo is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, not only because there are only 29 residences available, but also because there is no property comparable to Il Borgo in Tuscany. Construction permits are no longer granted for new buildings in this region and there are only a few select, renovated properties that currently exist.
The Village of Il Borgo has the ambience of a typical Tuscan community. Constructed of materials that include pilloli (a large river pebble), pietra serena (soft grey marble), cotto (Tuscan red bricks) and mattonelle (locally produced tiles), Il Borgo’s distinctive architecture matches the integrity of the original structures.
First-rate amenities, the privacy of a separate entrance, and a four-star hotel service enhance your comfort. All units include: gracious living room with fireplace, large bedroom with double bed, modern bathroom with hairdryer, satellite TV reception, telephone and internet connection, individually adjusted heat, and a safe for your valuables. All residences also feature a private terrace or balcony with a table and chairs where you can greet the dawn and toast the sunset.
