Exclusive Wedding Hamlet near Pisa ref #1
This ancient hamlet (“borgo” in Italian) is a luxurious and charming destination, a hidden gem of Tuscany surrounded by history and nature. Sitting on the top of a hill, amongst ancient olive groves, this private village lies between the beautiful cities of Pisa, Florence and Siena. Originally a castle, during the years it has become a private luxury country retreat. Nowadays, after a complete renovation in 2003 under the guidance of the Italian Fine Arts Commission, the whole village was transformed into an exclusive and exceedingly private resort. This amazing hamlet encompasses a main building with six luxury suites and is surrounded by the original farmhouses, finely restored and divided to form a private village.
Located just 40 minute form Pisa Airport and one hour from Florence Airport, 10 minutes from a major train station in Pontedera
