The buildings of Borgo Casciano were once an old mill, with an adjacent barn. In 2011 they have been completely restored and transformed into five elegant and tasteful country units. The owners live on the property in a separate historical villa, about 200 meters from the borgo across the garden. They are fluent in English and are happy to help guests during their stay on the their property.
The estate is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fields that are often full of sunflowers...the quintessential hills of Chianti! A new pool will be set in the middle of the olive trees.
A short drive along 300 meters of an unpaved country lane lined with cypresses leads to the property. Each apartment has a private outdoor area for al fresco dining, and there is a common outdoor area with parasols and lounges where guests can gather together.
Each accommodation has been furnished with love and care, with Tuscan colored walls, terracotta floors, original art, antiques and beautiful fabrics. All of the bedrooms are air conditioned, and amenities include satellite TV, radio, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator, American and Italian coffee makers, toaster, barbecue and hair dryers. There is a laundry room in the main building, accessible to all guests, with a washing machine.
