Description

This is the perfect starting point to explore Tuscany. Located in the heart of Chianti, Borgo in Rosa is just 20 minutes from Florence, 50 minutes from Siena, one hour from Lucca, and all of the beautiful hill towns of Chianti are within easy reach. The location couldn't be better. The closest village, Mercatale Val di Pesa, has shops and restaurants and is just 5 minutes away by car (2 km) or 15 minutes walking across the fields. In the proximity of the estate there is a great variety of small trattorias and specialty restaurants - each night you can dine in a new place (you will find a list of recommendations and helpful hints about the region in your apartment). Facilities for horseback riding are nearby (3 km).
Completely restored in 2011, Borgo in Rosa was once an old mill and a barn, and is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. A short drive along a country lane lined with cypresses (400 meter dirt road) leads to the property. The shared pool is

Completely restored in 2011, Borgo in Rosa was once an old mill and a barn, and is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. A short drive along a country lane lined with cypresses (400 meter dirt road) leads to the property. The shared pool is located among the olive trees. All of the apartments have an outdoor area for al fresco dining, and there is also a large common area with lounges and umbrellas where large groups can gather together. Each accommodation has been furnished with love and care, with Tuscan-colored walls, terracotta floors, original art and antiques, and beautiful fabrics. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned. There is a laundry room with washing machine in the main building, accessible to all guests. The owners live in a separate villa across the garden; they are fluent in English and are happy to help guests during their stay.

The Chianti area
The hills of Chianti, criss-crossed with vines and crested with cypress trees have become the hallmark of Tuscany, the beauty of the landscape married to a quality of life which would be rare anywhere in the world. Chiantishire, as the English call it, has an infinite variety of hilltop villages where you can sip a cappuccino in one of the outdoor cafe's in the medieval squares, of cellars where you can sample the local wines from the barrels, of little trattorias serving robustly satisfying Tuscan food with its hams and salamis and delicious pastas and wild boar stew with white beans and salads growing wild in the hedgerows. The back roads wind uphill and down, between old stone walls crested with pale violet irises past Romanesque cloisters, sandstone farmhouses and shepherds with their flocks of sheep producing the famed 'pecorino' cheese.
Sightseeing
You are in the heart of Tuscany and the list of excursions half or a whole day away is long: Florence, famous for its fine Renaissance art, the walled city of Lucca with its 99 churches, the leaning tower of Pisa, the Val d'Orcia with the Renaissance town of Pienza and the wine-making meccas of Montepulciano and Montalcino and the awe-inspiring abbey of Sant'Antimo are just a few...
Distances
Florence is 15 to 20 minutes away, Greve in Chianti 25 minutes, San Gimignano 30 minutes, while Siena can be reached in 50 minutes. Montalcino and Pienza are a one and a half hour's drive, while the Thyrrenian sea is one hour away. Pisa and Lucca are one hour by car while the jet-set sea resort of Porto Ercole can be reached in approx. one and a half hours.
Airports and transport
The Florence airport is 25 kilometres away and Pisa is at 118 kilometres, while the airport in Rome is less than three hours away and approx. 290 kilometres further south. The nearest railway station with most travel options is Florence.
