Borgo Finocchieto – Unique Among Luxury Villas in Tuscany
Borgo Finocchieto, unique among luxury villas in Tuscany, is a beautifully and elegantly restored eight hundred-year-old village, or “borgo,” with stunning views located thirty minutes south of Siena and close to Montalcino in the Brunello wine-growing district. John Phillips, the owner of the Borgo, is an American of Italian ancestry and former U.S. Ambassador to Italy from 2013 to early 2017. Phillips purchased the property in 2001 and spent the next eight years planning and overseeing the Borgo’s extensive renovation.
The Borgo continues its tradition of renting the entire village (five villas with a total of 22 suites and luxury rooms, accommodating up to 44 guests) to large gatherings on an exclusive, buy-out basis. A private Chef will cater to your needs, along with a concierge who will arrange custom tours and experiences. For those looking for a workout, relaxation or fun competition, the Borgo includes a sixty-foot oval swimming pool; a fully equipped gym with weights, Cybex and elliptical machines, a sauna, steam room, hot tub and cold splash; and tennis, basketball and bocce courts.
As a special accommodation to smaller groups who wish to experience the Borgo, individual villas may occasionally be available when the entire property has not been booked by a larger group on an exclusive basis. In this case, guests who rent single villas have the option of cooking their own meals in the well-appointed villa kitchens or arranging for a private chef at an additional fee. Otherwise, all of the amenities listed above will be available to guests who reserve single villas.
The Borgo has attracted guests from all over the world and specializes in creating unforgettable, custom-tailored experiences for gatherings of all kinds: to celebrate weddings, family reunions, anniversaries, and milestone birthdays; to renew lasting friendships at school reunions; or to combine work and relaxation at retreats,
business meetings or conferences.
You will discover, as others have before you, that the Borgo offers an uncommon experience among luxury properties in Tuscany. Our private village will delight the most discerning of guests. The Borgo is for those who demand the very best of what Tuscany has to offer and will accept no substitute. The Borgo exceeds all demands by its history and setting, the detail and quality of its spaces, privacy, and, above all, the supreme level of its service.
