A cosy apartment located on the ground floor of a restored building, with independent entrance and panoramic terrace.
The apartment is part of an ancient Tuscan borgo, 5 minutes from the medieval town of Palaia.
Borgo di Colleoli is a charming destination in the heart of Tuscany, surrounded by history and nature. Perched on the top of a hill amongst ancient olive groves, the Borgo lies between the beautiful cities of Pisa, Florence and Siena. The small village of Colleoli has become very popular since visitors have chosen this destination as their favourite place to spend holidays in this beautiful area of Tuscany, rich with nature, culture, history, traditions, art, cooking and friendly people.
Palaia, 2km from Colleoli, is an important historic centre with all kind of amenities.
From Borgo di Colleoli it is possible to walk to three different restaurants offering a variety of menus: from pizza to typical homemade Tuscan cuisine.
In the past the original medieval castle was developed over the years to become an aristocratic villa and estate. During the 17th and 18th centuries much renovation work was carried out to the frescoes and delicate mouldings so that the Borgo eventually became an elegant country retreat. Today the estate encompasses the main villa and the surrounding farm buildings, including a hayloft, a workshop and an administrative building. In 2003 the whole Borgo was restored by Pisan Architects under the guidance of the Italian Fine Arts Commission and the property was thus transformed from a country manor into a unique, modern holiday resort.
Borgo di Colleoli is the perfect venue for tasting the excellent local wine and exploring the region's rich history. In the villa at the heart of the Borgo there is a very good wine bar, which also serves breakfast, snacks and aperitifs throughout the day. The restaurant 'I Secoli' in the same building is also the ideal place to enjoy some of the sophisticated variety dishes prepared according to traditional Tuscan recipes.
