Tuscan Luxury: Il Borro’s New Suites

Ferruccio Ferragamo’s Il Borro, a Relais & Châteaux property in Tuscany’s Upper Valdarno valley, has opened the Aie del Borro, a collection of 18 new suites spread across four centuries-old farmhouses. 

The buildings comprising the Aie del Borro have been restored and now have four different room categories. For couples, the Luxury Suites are the best option; these are among the larger options and have furnished terraces. The Family Suites can accommodate six in three bedrooms. 

We hear the new Vincafé is the spot to enjoy a light lunch or an aperitif at sunset. At Osteria del Borro, Il Borro’s fine dining restaurant, a must-order dish is the cold creamed peas with flowers and marinated cuttlefish tagliatelle.

If you’re looking to get off property and off the beaten path, the medieval town of Arezzo (25 minutes south of Il Borro) is a must. This hilltop town is known for its rich history, with quiet streets and serene piazzas. Reservations manager Angela Boninsegni ([email protected]; 011-39-055-977-053) can assist with arranging transportation and dining reservations (Dario e Anna is a top pick among locals and visitors).

If you’re looking for an in-depth wellness getaway in Tuscany, Toscana Resort Castelfalfi has a new partnership with Bocelli Wines, which, in collaboration with La Spa, is now offering a range of organic, grape-based facial and body treatments. The “vinotherapy” products are made from the byproducts of the wine produced at the Bocelli family vineyards. 

Other new partnerships at Toscana Resort Castelfalfi include BLUEf!t (Bluefit), which focuses on fascia and autogenic training, and Brainkinetik, offering brain function and productivity sessions. Book with Dario Laquinto ([email protected]; 011-39-057-189-0164), director of sales.
