Tuscan Country Estate near Quaint Medieval Village
In the fertile plains of Tuscany, at the foot of the Pratomagno Mountains, lies a small village known as Il Borro. Perched atop a rocky spur, the town looks like something out of a Renaissance painting—it has cobbled roads, stone bridges, rustic stucco buildings, and blooming gardens. This luxurious Tuscan getaway from Great Value Vacations puts you in the heart of this storied landscape, within easy driving distance of some of Italy’s most iconic attractions, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the cities of Florence and Siena. The five idyllic seaside villages known collectively as Cinque Terre are also easily accessible by car.
The vacation includes a seven-night stay in a private, two-bedroom farmhouse at the elegant Il Borro Estate as well as roundtrip economy-class airfare to Florence and an intermediate-size car rental (with manual transmission) for the duration of your visit. Click here for more info on the trip.
Set on a palatial 1,700-acre swath of verdant Tuscan countryside, Il Borro Estate is owned by the Ferragamo family, which is renowned for its wine. The Ferragamos grow five varieties of grapes across 99 acres; you’ll have a chance to tour the winery and taste the fruits of their labor during your visit.
A scenic stroll brings you to your farmhouse, which has been restored using traditional materials and rural architectural methods. Inside, you'll find a welcome bottle of wine from Il Borro vineyard and two spacious bedrooms outfitted with elegant décor. Each farmhouse overlooks a swimming pool, and most are surrounded by gardens. Each morning, you can dig into a hearty Italian breakfast.
Outdoor pursuits on offer include horseback riding, hot air balloon rides, fishing, and open-air speed readings of Dante’s Inferno. At the estate's restaurant, Osteria del Borro, chefs prepare handcrafted dishes using ingredients grown on the surrounding estate wherever possible.
