On one thing, everyone can agree: modern life is exhausting. There is only one escape: the past. And for this lot, medieval Tuscany is your destination, polished off with a few non-exhausting modern touches. Did someone say spa?
They most certainly did, but that’s hardly all. On this journey, two fortunate couples will stay six nights in a luxury two-bedroom Suite in the ancient village of Il Borro, steps from the Il Borro winery and artisan’s shops, all pleasantly ensconced in the charming Tuscan countryside. Try a bit of horseback riding, a private tour and tasting at the Il Borro winery, or a guided tour of the “Wine & Art” exhibition to pass the time, if you’d like.
And don’t forget: the Il Borro Spa will cater to your spa needs, including one complimentary 80-minute Wine Sensory massage for each person. This lot is all about a toast to your health, after all. And, finally, one special evening, a special gourmet Tuscan dinner will be prepared for you at Osteria del Borro. We are feeling healthier already!
A name famous throughout the world of fashion, Ferruccio and Salvatore Ferragamo purchased Il Borro in 1993, and are writing a new chapter in the illustrious story of this medieval village, a modern oasis in an ancient countryside. The renovations made by the Ferragamo Family beautifully complement the traditions of the rural and charming Tuscan lifestyle. What makes Il Borro something special lies in its 1,000-year-old past, the exact origins dating back to 1039, and every alley, every stone, every flavor and scent, speak of a time that once was.
When the trip inevitably comes to an end, the experience will continue with a magnificent Imperial of Il Borro IGT Toscana Red Wine, signed by Salvatore Ferragamo. Il Borro’s wines are a distinctive blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, their refinement and elegance sets them apart from similar concepts.
Call it a spa week, call it a health getaway. Just don’t call it a missed opportunity.
