The 5 ancient buildings
The Borgo offers total privacy in 5 historic houses restored to their former splendor, perfectly furnished and equipped in the country-chic style. A scenic garden of 30,000 square meters surrounds the houses. A large medieval drinking trough has been transformed into a 100 sqm black swimming pool. It makes an exciting mirror by the reflections of the lights. There is a green lawn of over 3000 square meters around the pool.
The green area consists of a vegetable garden, cultivations, gardens, organic orchard, and an elegant and harmonious open-air greenhouse of 175 square meters. All is over of 10,000 square meters of extension. Inside the location, there are old stables of over 1200 square meters readapted and equipped for parties and meetings of all the kinds.
Eco Vegetable Spa Suite
Next to the vegetable garden there is a barn with the suite in bales of the straw on the loft. It has been transformed into a complete SPA with jacuzzi, hay baths, dry sauna and a wet Siberian sauna. Outside the SPA there is a small pool and a shower on the tree over an open toilet between laurels and an external pump from which you can draw the water in a pitcher to wash the face. You can feel the life in the time.
The historic paths with the ancient oak woods give the walkways a bucolic atmosphere of peace and tranquility between the vineyards and the village nursery, that are located next to the large field of 10,000 square meters once used for fairs and markets. A red oak well of the desires at the border is still working.
It was built in the honor of San Cristoforo, whose name in Greek means “Bearer of the Christ”, today the patron saint of travelers, ferrymen and boatmen. It dates back to 1472 and still has frescoes from the second half of the 1400s. Some historical research traces the Church of San Cristoforo to the year 1000 (Lombard period); a testimony to this there is a partly preserved river pebble floor.
Stone pillars and iron railings are original from that time as well as an imposing entrance door from the ancient oak. The 500 years old apse and the altar are preserved as before.
