We stayed at Borgo Santa Maria in October 2008 as part of a house swap with our Paris apartment. We were very well looked after and both the house and the area were fantastic. All modern comforts, but a real sense of history about the place. The accommodation was superb. Real peace, privacy and relaxation. We had great trips to Arezzo, Cortona, Siena and Florence - all within easy reach. Would go back tomorrow.

A beautiful quiet place with Anna and Giorgio the perfect hosts. Take Baita in preference, well worth the extra. Shop at the local COOP/butchers and fruit and veg shops in Laterina its so much more friendly. Giorgio and Anna Thank You for a peaceful and beautiful time.

About the owner
My wife and I have been in marketing and tourism all our lives, up north, in Padua ,where we lived for many years. When we decided to live at a different pace we moved to Tuscany. Finding the house we wanted has not been an easy task and changing it into a charming and pleasant holiday home has been even more difficult, but we succeeded. Although sometimes tiring, our work is a very rewarding one and above all we do love it, thanks to the many people we met during these years, those who kept coming back or kept in touch or asked for our advice when choosing another area. We like to say that our vacation home is "managed by the owners “ and “by professionals" ,knowing very well the meaning of both sentences. It is very difficult to do what we are doing without being professional also being the owners help us to put more love in what we do.
