Borgo San Michele
Perched high above the magnificent Val di Chiana, Borgo San Michele is a collection of five houses, gathering hall, church, and several other buildings that form part of a picturesque hamlet within the shadow of an impressive 11th Century castle.
Each of the houses has been lovingly restored with impeccably tasteful décor by renowned British designer, David Mlinaric. Comfortable bedrooms all have en suite baths. Cozy living spaces with beamed ceilings create a convivial atmosphere. The stunning gardens include a private pool perched high above the countryside. Guests also have access to the hamlet’s private chapel and restored theatre — perfect for an intimate destination wedding and reception, or a special Tuscany celebration.
The main house, Villa Visconti, is available on its own and is ideal for six people, offering magnificent gardens, air-conditioning, stunning views and its own pool. The other four houses (Casa Bufalò, Casa Rosini (AC), Villa Medici (has AC) and Casa Orsini) are equally as wonderful, making the property ideal for large groups and families who enjoy their independence.
