— How would you describe Il Borgo del Balsamico in a nutshell?

Cristina: “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 house, the rooms and the apartment.

Cristina: “Il Borgo is a stone building that holds three warm and spacious rooms and an apartment on the second floor. While our office is in the basement, there is a private entrance to the rooms and the apartment. Each of the guest rooms is furnished with a stylish mix of vintage and designer pieces.

The Cortina room is special, with hand-painted, original furniture and a private bathroom outside of the room. The Ortigia room is inspired by southern Italy and has an ancient bed from Sicily. The third room, La Piccolina, is very cosy and the only room with twin beds. Ortigia and La Piccolina are rented together and share a private bathroom.

The apartment is about 150 square metres in size, overlooks the gardens, and is fitted with antique furniture. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a big living room, and a bathroom with a tub. There is a large bedroom with a big round window facing the garden, as well as another double room, so there is enough space for four people.”

— Please tell us about the facilities and services offered at Il Borgo del Balsamico.

Cristina: “Breakfast is included with a stay at Il Borgo del Balsamico, which we serve inside during the winter and outside overlooking the garden during the summer. Guests can enjoy our swimming pool, the beautiful Italian-style gardens, as well as all 10,000 square metres of our property. Wi-Fi is available all throughout the house and we can of course help with recommendations for things to see and do in the area. One treat that we offer our guests is a tour to see how our balsamic vinegar is made, which includes tastings as well.”

— Please tell us about the style of the interior of the B&B.

Cristina: “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?

Cristina: “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?

Cristina: “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.”
