How would you describe Il Borgo del Balsamico in a nutshell?
At Il Borgo del Balsamico we rent out three beautiful rooms and one apartment, right in our wonderful historic home with a peaceful atmosphere. The house was built in the 1700s and my father, who always loved the countryside, has always dreamed to own a country home. The company Il Borgo de Balsamico was started because of my father’s passion for aging balsamic vinegar, and it is now well known for its Balsamic. My sister and I built a very successful company based around our father’s passion and eventually decided to also open a beautiful small bed and breakfast in our house as this big and very beautiful property is perfect to be shared with guests.
Please tell us about the style of the interior of the B&B.
The interior style of Il Borgo del Balsamico comes directly from our passion for antique and modern vintage furniture. Different styles were mixed in order to create a very personal but very appealing style. We brought together some furniture from the 16th century and mixed it in with some modern vintage furniture from the 50’s. There are also paintings and sculptures from the 19th century, as we appreciate the design and beauty of those pieces. Additionally, all of the paintings are originals.
How would you describe the atmosphere of B&B?
The Borgo is kind of magical and everything is secluded. The house is not in the hills or the mountains or on the beach, but surrounded by charming gardens. You feel safe, in the luxury of a very peaceful and quiet place. The energy of this place is very special, as it’s like having a private home away from home. Our guests’ privacy is ensured, even if all rooms are fully booked as there will be no more than 11 guests in our large home. Every day they can enjoy the calm and exquisite atmosphere.
Who is the perfect guest for the house?
Families are really welcome and children too, but they have to know that this is a silent and peaceful place, and so it has to be. For example, there are no TVs in the rooms and we encourage a quiet and calm atmosphere. We do offer accommodations for people with dogs, as long as they are well-behaved.
