Borgo delle Erbe is located on a hill in central Tuscany and is composed of a small group of three farmhouses, which have been completely renovated and divided into apartments, overlooking the countryside covered with meadows, olive groves and small wood groves. The structure is well suited for families with children who can play on the lawn and for groups of friends who want to visit the many famous villages in the area, such as San Gimignano, Certaldo and many others along the ancient Via Francigena, in addition to the cities of Florence and Siena, just over 40 minutes' drive away. For those who did not want to cook, the nearby village Montaione has bars/cafés, restaurants and many food shops. The farmhouses are surrounded by outdoor green areas, gardens with Mediterranean flora with fragrant herbs, lawns, clay pots and trellised green areas. Inside there is an ancient stone-paved courtyard with a bubbling fountain that recreates the ancient rural setting. Each apartment is furnished and decorated with different colors and each one has a beautiful view of the countryside. All the apartments share a large loggia and a lawn where there is a beautiful infinity pool (21x6 m, 1.40-2.5m deep) (01/05-30/09). To finish off, there is also a pleasant sun terrace with sun loungers and sun umbrellas.
