Il Borgo, an estate of a thousand hectares, is situated in the Valdarno, one of the most beautiful and historically important areas of Tuscany at about 35km/22miles from Florence.
The estate covers an area situated at 400 metres of altitude up to 900 metres, on the crest of mountains.
The residential part, a convent dating back to the late XVII century and subsequently transformed into a farm, is surrounded by extensive olive groves, bordering on woodlands, also part of the property, characterized by the presence of water springs and varied flora and fauna.
Il Borgo is composed of 5 residences comprising apartments, cottages and a private villa, which have all undergone a careful renovation bringing charm and maximum comfort to the old areas of the farm.
All of them are situated around the old village square.
The small private garden of Uliveto is delimited by a stone wall, a wooden truss and a wrought iron gate. This large house faces the square of the village of the Borgo from the ancient stone buttressed rampart.
As in traditional countryside houses in Tuscany, the 2 floors are connected both by an external brick staircase as well as by an interior one.
Among the residences of Il Borgo just one, Camelie, is an independent villa with private pool, overlooking the park and olive groves, while others, the apartments of the village and two private villas with pool to share, have been built from the pre-existing productive and living structures overlooking the square.
The apartments are furnished with antique family furniture, carefully combined with designer elements. Some of the latter have been designed by the owner an important Italian architect to lend personality and functionality to the apartments.
The guests of Uliveto can enjoy common areas such as the multimedia library, the theatre, the wine bar and the billiard room as well as the sports facilities such as the swimming pool.
The most fascinating areas of the old farm are destined for the entertainment and leisure structures. Situated between the apartments and the olive press, the library and theatre represent an opportunity for the guests of Il Borgo to meet, enjoy a little cultural and relax among a wide range of books and magazines, together with the areas for reading, talking, games and shows.
The theatre and indoor areas are set up to host artistic and musical events, meetings and conferences.
In the areas closer to the Borgo are a pavilion, on the borders of a small lake, where lunch or a moonlit dinner can be held. As in the past, the productive structure of Il Borgo carries on the meticulous work of transforming the crops grown on the estate, where the extra virgin olive oil produced is considered a top quality oil.
The property is situated in one of the most beautiful and important areas of Tuscany for landscape, history and culture: the Valdarno. This area, is bordered to the west by the Chianti hills, offering hilly landscapes mainly cultivated with olive groves and mountainous areas with large tracts of woodland. In this area, which was the homeland of many artists, including Masaccio, there are many small villages worth visiting.
