The history of the Borgo
Borgo Corniola has truly ancient origins. In the thirteenth century it was a Ralais, a rest-stop where travellers could take shelter and allow horses to regain their strength during their travels across Tuscany. Due to its particular location it became a point of reference for those who were crossing the Tuscan-Emilian hills to reach Florence.
Thanks to the splendid river Acerreta, which laps at its walls, the Borgo, was, over the centuries, transformed into a mill. The central structure has grown over the years to become a building with two wings. In the right wing we find the River Suite with its fabulous relaxation room equipped with all modern comforts. In the other wing, we find the Wayfarer’s Quadruple Room and the Master Double Room. The central building is also home to a welcoming common area, with fireplace and hardwood table, which can be used as a dining room and is where breakfast is served. The spacious taverna, which also has a stone chimney, is the perfect place to spend your evenings, in an atmosphere of days gone by.
