I Borghi dell’Eremo

I Borghi dell’Eremo

This small hotel, housed in a former 12th-century Benedictine abbey, is brand new. It was renovated with great passion, dedication and good taste by the Galletti family. The rooms are cosily decorated with a contemporary touch, but while still respecting the authenticity of the building, allowing them to fit perfectly into the charming setting. In addition to the abbey, the family also revived the farm. They bought new livestock, they carefully restored the neglected olive trees and planted new fruit trees and crops. Here, everything revolves around biodiversity, sustainability, personal service, professionalism and - what else - delicious local cuisine, using their own products. Its location near the border with Tuscany means it is an ideal place to visit both regions.


You will find some biscuits in the room upon arrival. Enjoy the private wellness and make use of the 20% reduction that is offered. Newlyweds receive a pastry and a bottle of Prosecco in the room.
