Originally the Borghetto was a complex of country-houses lived in by local gentry and farmers ; in time, and with immense care for detail, the structure took its present day appearance thanks to the choice of antique material, such as the carefully designed terracotta floors. Il Borghetto today appears as a small borough with its characteristic courtyard and porticoes.
Il Borghetto offers a comfortable swimming pool surrounded by ancient olive trees and peaceful terraced gardens, ideal for sun-bathing and relaxing in the quiet country-side .
The friendly anglo-italian family, owners of the Agriturismo Il Borghetto, speaks fluent English, French and German and personally welcomes all guests to make them feel at their ease. Il Borghetto offers a unique combination of peace and quiet, recreating an atmosphere from the past with its stone and brick façades and wrought iron gates and fences, far from the confusion of the town in a place where time seems to have stood still. It is a perfect location during all seasons where the visitor can relive the charm of the past.

The Umbria region
Amelia is the closest town to the Borghetto and is well known for the rare ancient polygonal walls which surround it. Amelia was presumably founded by King Ameroe in 1134 b.C. It was already a Municipality under the control of Rome in 338 b.C. The Archeological Museum of Amelia is well worth attention as it houses the impressive bronze statue of the Germanico which dates back to the first century after Christ. Amelia was already referred to by Cicerone in 80 b.C in his defense of Sesto Roscio Amerino.
The town at that time was known with the name of Ameria. It has a large number of important noble homes which were built and decorated by famous names such as San Gallo and Zuccari. Amelia is the home town of artists like Pier Matteo of Amelia, who was mostly famous for having painted the Sistine Chapel before Michelangelo. The cathedral and the Civic Tower are also well worth visiting. Marcello Aldega's private collection of rare sketches and drawings by famous artists can be visited upon appointment.
Amelia, like all the rest of Umbria, is famous for its local products: extra virgin olive oil (also produced by the Borghetto), the “norcinerie”, fresh pasta and cheese products, as well as D.O.C. wines and typical cakes and biscuits. It is an area which still believes in “slow food”. The summer months are animated by a series of local "taverne" where typical local foods are prepared in the open, usually in a village square. There are also medieval parades and medieval activities to be seen in the area, as well as the ever expanding Umbria Jazz events in Narni, Orvieto and Perugia.
The Borghetto is located among picturesque Umbrian hills at about 370 meters above sea level, with a mild climate most of the year. The summer months are warm, but with a gentle breeze in the evenings.
The area offers:
Horse stables with riding courses for children and adults, as well as horseback excursions
The Amelia Tennis Club
The famous thermal baths in Viterbo are approximately 35 minutes away by car
