Fodor's Expert Review Il Borro

Località Il Borro 1, outside village of San Giustino Valdarno, 20 km (12 miles) northwest of Arezzo, , Tuscany, 52024, Italy Fodor's Choice

The location has been described as "heaven on earth," and a stay at this elegant Ferragamo estate, with a 10-bedroom villa (rented out as a single unit) that was once a luxurious hunting lodge, and nearby a medieval village is sure to bring similar descriptions to mind. Here, 16 of the houses have been converted into splendid suites that sleep 2–8. No two are alike, and the shops and craftspeople who work in the village are all part of the hotel: the atmosphere is magical.
