Il Borro is a place where the past, present and future all come together in beautiful surroundings, it is the ultimate mash-up of a "borgo" turned country-estate resort and a wellness retreat.
The estate dates back to 1254 but from the mid-fifties, Il Borro passed to Duke Amedeo of Savoy-Aosta, and in 1993 the Duke sold the entire property to Ferruccio Ferragamo. Since then, he has worked every day to preserve Il Borro’s beauty and integrity, a task he carries out with relentless passion, aware that treasures such as Il Borro have to be protected and safeguarded. Immaculately manicured gardens, an art gallery, spectacular dining, a unique winery, stables, spa facilities, luxury suites and villas are spread out over the 700-hectare estate in the heart of Tuscany, collectively creating an unforgettable experience.
Il Borro is a world on its own: when you arrive through its grand gate, you can get lost in the world the Ferragamo family created. Leave your car at reception and take the shuttle which will bring you over the antique bridge to the medieval village where your neighbors are various craft workshops and shops, such as Palaia (shoe making) and Oro del Borro (jewelry-making). Once here, you feel you’re living in a different century: a quiet valley, beautiful views over the Tuscan hillside and endless activities including horseback riding, truffle hunting, cooking classes, relaxing at the spa or taking a guided excursion to the nearby cities of Florence or Siena.
