The estate is rich in history and it is a destination within itself as there is so much to do on property. Covering over 1,700 acres, it offers many different types of accommodations from suites to private homes, some of which are located in a beautifully restored medieval village. As you stroll through the streets you will find local artisans hard at work creating shoes, pottery, gold jewellery, paintings, hats and much more - offering wonderful gifts to commemorate your stay. Around the main property, there is a beautiful wine and art gallery as well as plenty of activities including hiking, horseback riding, tennis, golf, yoga and wine tasting. Il Borro truly has it all!
