you can reach with a five minute drive or a fifteen minute walk through the

In 2011 they were completely restored and transformed into five stylish and well appointed country units. The English speaking owners live in a separate historical villa about 200 meters from the borgo. Their grounds are entirely separate. They are welcoming and happy to help guests during their stay.
The estate is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fields that are often
full of sunflowers...the quintessential hills of Chianti! The large pool is located in a panoramic setting in the middle of the olive trees.
A short drive along 300 meters of an unpaved country lane lined with cypresses
leads to the property. Each apartment has a private outdoor area with high
quality furniture for
al fresco dining, and there is a common outdoor area with parasols and
lounges where guests can gather together.
Each accommodation has been furnished with taste and care, with Tuscan colored
walls, terracotta floors, original art, antiques and beautiful fabrics.
All of the bedrooms are air conditioned, and amenities include WIFI internet, satellite TV,
radio, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator, American and Italian coffee
makers, toaster, barbecue and hair dryers. There is a washer/dryer combo unit in all of the units except for Capanna Borgo Casciano 3 which has a washing machine and drying rack. All units have ironing facilities.
