    Welcome to
    Il Borgo di Villa Bossi-Pucci

    Il Borgo stands on the grounds of a 17th century country estate established by Florence’s distinguished Bossi-Pucci family. Over the centuries, the estate became the largest wine producer of Chianti, its vineyards and olive groves stretching for hundreds of acres. The family villa and the celebrated cellars are now being restored to their original grace. While you may find yourself drawn to the open-air piazza, there is also a Tuscan reference library, an Internet center, an exercise room, jogging trails and parking. Il Borgo’s distinctive architecture comprises six beautiful reconstructed farm buildings with 25 spacious vacation units, most overlooking the peaceful Montespertoli valley. Tastefully decorated in Tuscan style, the colors, scale and wooden beams preserve the charm of the original farmhouses. All units include gracious living room with fireplace, large bedroom, modern bathroom, private terrace or balcony, telephone and Internet connection.
