Borgo Antico is a beautiful farmhouse on the high hills that separate the green Valdichiana from the Tiber Valley, located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. It is the ideal place for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday, in close contact with nature and far from the noise and bustle of the cities.
Moreover, thanks to its position, 600 m above sea level and the large stone walls, the house, even on the hottest summer days, guarantees a cool and comfortable temperature inside, especially on the ground floor.

The Etruscan town of Cortona in Tuscany and the village of Trestina in Umbria are both about 18 km away, while restaurants and small shops for basic necessities can be reached within 5 or 10 km.

You can spend your holiday days bathing in the swimming pool (size 6 x 12 m - depth 1.20-2.40 m, completely fenced in - open from 01st May to 30th September), playing table tennis and enjoying tasty lunches and dinners in the cool gazebo furnished with tables and chairs next to the barbecue and wood-burning oven. Even the youngest children will have fun on the swing and slide.

The house is well furnished with Tuscan style furniture.  Possibility to taste and buy excellent extra virgin olive oil, wine and other typical products. Since the house is located in a quite secluded position and in order not to miss a single minute of your holiday, for the day of arrival it is possible to request a shopping service with home delivery (to be agreed before arrival).

    Perfect for our needs, everyone was delighted. The owner, Stefano, is very kind and helpful. The pool was really appreciated. A very quiet and peaceful location with lovely views over the woods and hills.

    Idyllic! The property is beautiful and perfect to get away for a bit. Great for a group gathering and the hosts are helpful and responsive.

    Quel environnement!

    Nous avons passé deux semaines dans le calme, la nature et la sérénité. Quel environnement! Nous ne regrettona absolument pas notre choix. Nous étions 10 adultes et 3 enfants et l'espace dans la maison est tout à fait approprié. Le temps nécessaire pour se rendre dans les magasins est d'environ 30/35 minutes mais nous faisions les provisions lors de la rentrée d'excursions, donc ce n'est pas véritablement un problème, juste une question d'organisation. Nous ne pouvons que conseiller cette location. Si c'est le calme et le ressourcement que vous cherchez...faites-vous plaisir!

    Je recommande cette maison sans réserve !

    Nous connaissons bien l'Italie et nous avons loué cette maison pour 2 semaines en juillet en famille (nous étions 9 adultes et 2 enfants) et ce fut un séjour inoubliable. La maison est admirablement située au sud est de la toscane, entre Florence et Assise, avec une vue superbe sur les collines alentour. Ses 7 chambres et ses 5 salles de bain, réparties entre la maison et une annexe, sont idéales pour des séjours en groupe sans se marcher sur les pieds. La piscine est très grande avec une vue sur les collines. Le gérant est très aimable et prévenant. La maison est très bien équipée avec 2 frigos, un lave linge et un lave vaisselle. Un vrai paradis ! Le chemin pour y accéder est certes caillouteux surtout le dernier kilomètre mais tout à fait praticable avec une voiture classique,ce que nous avions tous.

    Thank you Stefano.

    We stayed here for two weeks, last week in June First week in July, I have to say this house is absolutely beautiful, decorated very nicely, has everything you could want for a large group! Pool and gardens are very well maintained and spotless clean. The host Stefano was fantastic to deal with, he even dropped us down breakfast on our first morning, we couldn’t have asked for more! We had one minor issue which was resolved within 20 minutes of us calling him!

    Vielen Dank!

    Ein rundum gepflegtes und gut ausgestattetes Haus. Der Eigentümer Stefano hat sich herzlich gekümmert, schneller Service und sehr korrekte Abwicklung. Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen!

    Siamo rimasti soddisfatti della casa e del servizio sia da parte vostra che dall'host della casa. Nulla da dire sulla pulizia, tutto perfetto. Ci ha particolarmente soddisfatti facilità e trasparenza nei pagamenti e nella corrispondenza. Io tornerei volentieri in questa casa magari in un'altra stagione per sfruttare maggiormente lo spazio esterno. Grazie e cordiali saluti.

    Really beautiful

    Really beautiful location with the pool overseeing the mountains. Very nice and helpful host Stefano. The house is really well equiped and has all you need. The only thing to bear in mind is very remote location from shops, restaurants etc. It is about 40 minutes away from Cortona through rural roads. But in exchange you get to spend great vacation in quiet surroundings.
