The Project

The “Borghi della Selvaccia” are born thanks to Luigi Pelaggi’ and Paolo Rossi’s business initiative who dedicated their energy and passion to the construction  -and, incidentally ,reconstruction-  of an ancient rural hamlet located in the countryside of Bucine, one of the most fascinating panorama in Val d’Ambra.

A magic place indeed.

A land that is rich of history, myths and legends: on the banks of Ambra river, in the heart of Tuscany, at 30km from Siena and Arezzo, 50km from Florence, and just at fourty minutes from some of the most beautiful Tuscan towns: Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona, San Gimignano, Volterra.

The property- situated on a hillock with a breathless view on the Chianti region- spreads out on over five hectares of land. All the buildings are made of local unplastered stone and follow faithfully the farmhouses’ design of the 19th century. A deep research has been made by specialists in the Historical Archive of Florence and with documents of Bucine’s municipality to reach this kind of perfection.

The “Borgo Antico” is composed of six  buildings: two bifamiliar houses of particular historic relevance and four detached villas (one of them with a private swimming pool).

The “Borgo Ambra” is composed of five buildings: two one-family, one bifamiliar and two tri-familiar villas.

Each inhabitation  has an individual entrance, its pergola, a wide private garden (up to 3.500smq) and dispose at least two bathrooms and two bedrooms.

Among the two villages, in the common green where three hundred olives and nine thousand ornamental plants have been set, you can find two parking areas with five gates and two swimming pools (adults, children). One of the swimming pool has Jacuzzi and paved solarium of 50smq.

At four hundred linear metres from “Borghi della Selvaccia” has been realized the “Poggio Cennina” resort: thirteen houses and antique villas, that are elegantly furnished with local craft made pieces. The property also includes ninety hectares of woods, biological grapevine and olives, a wine bar, a dining room, a sizable  sports centre (tennis court, soccer field, gym, Turkish bath, mountain bike, Jacuzzi and a 5.000smq lake).

A wellness center, and a  multifunctional room for conferences and meetings are under construction. The room will serve also as restaurant, wine shop,  and local farm’s products shop.
