Begin the day with a round of golf on Il Borro’s charming three-hole course, with each hole wending its way through the verdant countryside. Lessons are available. Three laps makes nine!
Thus invigorated, go explore the Val di Chiana through one of Il Borro’s curated tours. Morgan recommends visiting—via the breathtaking Valle del Casentino—nearby Arezzo, famed for its Piero della Francesca frescoes. On the way back to Il Borro, cruise through Cortona – the main tourist attraction of the Val de Chiana. Other excursion possibilities include a Chianti wine tour and truffle hunting.
Before you depart, savor one last cappuccino at Vin Café, Il Borro’s modernist outpost. Sheathed in glass, the casual contemporary eatery serves lunch, tea and wine amid a convivial ambiance amid the borgo. Thus refueled for your return journey, the bittersweet goodbyes begin. Though blessed by the past 36 hours, one weekend at Il Borro is never enough.
