Who we are

We are Gilly Love and Dale Sullivan and together with Dale’s father, Dennis, we have created Borghetto Calcinaia. In the seven years we have been here in this perfect corner of Tuscany, Borghetto Calcinaia has become very special to us and all those who have spent time here.

We live in Casa Olivo, with our dogs Scotty and Bert and our house stands between Casa Mandorlo and Casa Susinetto, so one of us is around to help you should you need any information and, whatever your question, if we don’t know the answer, we’ll know someone who does and we speak Italian.

Our previous home, Cinque Querce e Mezzo, is just over the border in Umbria, and is also available to rent. Click to open a new window with further details and availability.
We do hope you will choose one of our properties for your stay in Italy. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our homes, where we will do everything in our power to give you a perfect holiday. 

Where we are

One of the great benefits of Borghetto Calcinaia is that while it is totally private and surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, it is not isolated. Our nearest town, Anghiari, is a five minute drive away, where there are many small shops and restaurants, a weekly market and a fascinating museum celebrating the famous Battle of Anghiari 1440. We are also within a fifteen minute drive from several good quality supermarkets which not only sell a wide range of Italian wines but also stock everything from amaretti to zucchini.

During your stay you will have the use of an Italian mobile phone so you can reach us immediately. We have also compiled a comprehensive House Book with lots of local details and including our favourite tried and tested restaurants.

The driving distance from international airports is:
Perugia - 1 hour
Florence - 1½ hrs
Bologna - 2 hrs
Pisa - 2½ hrs
Rome - 3 hrs

There are also fast train connections from Arezzo, a 30 minutes drive away, to Florence, and from there to cities all over Italy.
