Getting married in a Tuscan Borgo

The Italian word Borgo is referring to a hamlet that in former times was a complete inhabited village and located in the countryside. Many of these former villages nowadays are charming holiday resorts. A borgo often dates back to the medieval and sometimes the original purpose of the single houses is still recognizable, as, for example, a house that once was the “school” of the village, the “scale” or the granary.

Beside the tourism, many borgo are working with agriculture, which mostly was the cause of their origin and is still an important part of the income source. The guest may find a cultivation of wine grapes, of olive groves, fruits, garden products and so on. This makes them very similar to the “Agriturismo” and indeed the difference is often only a very little one and determined by the main economical resource.

Some Borgo has become a true luxury hotel offering high standard guestrooms equipped with utmost comfort, while they do not offer any or only a few holiday apartments.

In any case, a Borgo nowadays is often a popular wedding venue and they offer the possibility to lodge all guests together and allow at the same time much privacy for the individuals.

A wedding reception in a medieval Borgo is a guarantee for a fairytale day: let yourself be pampered by a particular ambience, rich of flowers and scents in a timeless place!
