Il Borro Review

The location has been described as "heaven on earth," and a stay at Salvatore Ferragamo's estate is sure to bring similar descriptions to mind. The main 10-bedroom villa, once a luxurious hunting lodge, is now rented out as a single unit, but the principle attraction is a medieval village that sits atop a low knoll on the property. Here, 16 of the houses have been converted into splendid suites that sleep from 2 to 8 people. No two are alike, and the shops and craftspeople who work in the village are all part of the hotel: the atmosphere is magical.
