B&B Il Borghetto Country Inn - Bed and Breakfast Chianti Classico Near FlorenceIl Borghetto is a charming Country Inn located in the heart of the Chianti region, just 40 minutes by car from the Florence airport or 20 minutes south from the centre of town.
The property consists of a 30 hectar estate, cultivated with olive groves and vineyards, where olive oil and red wine are produced by the owners of the Inn. The original village, with its remains of military towers dating back to the 15th century, includes the main farmhouse, which has been completely restructured and today houses 3 Double Rooms, 3 Junior Suites and 3 Suites, all with private bathrooms, the main living room, kitchen restaurant and garden.

In 1982, Rosi and Roberto Cavallini have bought the antique hamlet, at that time, completely abandoned. After having skilfully and tastefully restored their own house, they invested all their energy to restore also the other buildings on the land. Rosi Cavallini has decorated the rooms of the B&B with a particular touch and many things she brought from her journeys around the world, creating therefore a very pleasant atmosphere, just to feel at home.

B&B Il Borghetto Country Inn - View from the Etruscan tomb towards the hamletThe origins of the land where "Il Borghetto" is rising, have to be even more remote: in 1978 during agricultural ploughing in the fields underneath the buildings, was discovered an Etruscan Tomb. After an analysis of the construction of the tombs and the materials found during the excavations, the archaeologists could determine quite precise dating, from around the VII century B.C. "The Etruscan Tomb of the Archer in Sant'Angelo a Bibbione" as it is called, is one of the most antique monuments of Etruscan civilization of the area, normally known in Northern Etruria and furthermore it is the only Etruscan find that can be visited at San Casciano.
