Description

Great Family holiday home. The charming estate of Borgo Tranquiitta is surrounded by wooded hills of olives and bucolic charm that surround it like a natural garden enclosing the village in beautiful countryside with extended views of the valley and beyond.

La Luna cottage is the largest and suitable for 4-5 guests. The cottage has three bedrooms (one double, a second with either twin or double and the third a single), a kitchen and dining area, sitting room and bathroom. It has has a private terrace for 'al fresco' dining with views of the valley and Castiglion Fiorentino, and the pool is just a stroll away.

The tiny hamlet's large communal crystal swimming pool has been idyllically positioned to enjoy the splendid views.

Each cottage has a small barbecue, however there is also a large stone "pizza oven" available. If you have seen some of Jamie Oliver's programs, you will have seen he uses this type of oven to cook various meals and not just pizza.!

Castiglion Fiorentino is about 8 kms. which is midway between the historic towns of Arezzo and Cortona. Lake Trasimeno with its pretty beaches is within easy driving distance.

From here you can relax, unwind and enjoy the lovely scenery - or, there are day excursions to Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulcinao, Pienza, Assisi and more. Wine is a famous Tuscan export and you can use some of your time here to explore the many vineyards or go on a wine tour (In English, French, Danish, German) and enjoy some of the superior wines Tuscany has to offer. Other activities in the area are cooking classes, truffle hunting and numerous festivals throughout the year.


The property sits on one of the hillsides overlooking the historic Val di Chio and is accessed by a white road. The beauty of the location is the peace and quiet along with the views, the sunsets and, if you are here during mid August, San Lorenzo's evening of shooting stars will entertain you too!

(The cottages can be rented individually or for a larger group of say, 12 guests when a large communal dining/sitting room is also available for all guests plus an additional bathroom).

Please note, heating is not included. In cooler periods, heating is available and charged per consumption.

The Tuscany region

Other than the various towns of Tuscany and Umbria, there are the many wineries and street markets to interest you and fill your day -

Wineries and Wine Tours

Tuscany, the fifth-largest region in Italy, has been making wine for centuries, but it is only over the last two decades or so that it has emerged as a leading producer of quality wines. Covering a little more than 15,000 square miles in central Italy, Tuscany is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on the west and southwest, Liguria to the northwest, Emilia Romagna to the north, the Marche and Umbria to the east, and Lazio to the southeast.


The key wine producing areas include Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri, Carmignano, Chianti Classico, Chianti Rufina and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Sangiovese is the main grape for most of Tuscany, producing everything from light and refreshing simple Chiantis to big and powerful Brunello di Montalcino or Chianti Classico riserva. International varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also important, either as small additions to traditional wines or as major components in groundbreaking ones. Traditional white varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia are used widely, although the best dry whites at the moment are made with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

“Rustic charm and a five star pool with a breathtaking view”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2015

This was indeed a haven of peace high up in the hills with a lovely view across the valley to the hills on the other side. The well appointed cottages make you feel you are part of the local landscape and the pool and its surroundings are delightfully luxurious. There are plenty of interesting places to see nearby, including Castiglione Fiorentino and Cortana.

“Good family holiday in Tuscany's Countryside”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2014

Our 12 day stay at Il Borgo was a greet success. Our family (5) made new friends here from Holland and England. The cottage was a good size for us and the quaintness of it made it all the more interesting. The pool good posison, lots of space for privacy. Everyone here went to the Pallio in the town. It was a mad fun day. the horse race was postponed from the first week and re run, the medieval festival with parades of animals , and local people really enjoying themselves was great. Evenings here too had added charm - fireflies glowing around the property The cottage had everything we needed - maybe an electric kettle or alternative coffee maker would make it even better (the kettle is available for gas stove). IT was our first time to Italy - it will not be the last and we so enjoyed here. The owners "little helper" Terri was a good local guide and dealt with a small problem one of the other guests had - quickly and no fuss. Good all round.
