Who we are

We are Dennis Sullivan and Gilly Love. We are both English and have lived in Italy for fifteen years.
This is our seventh year at Borghetto Calcinaia, and this perfect corner of Tuscany has become extremely special to us and all who’ve spent time here.

We live year-round in our house, Casa Olivo, with our dogs, Scotty and Bert. The house stands between Casa Mandorlo and Casa Susinetto, so we are usually on-site and available to advise you about what to do and where to go. We both speak Italian, and, whatever your question, if we don't know the answer, we’ll know someone who does.

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 beauties of Borghetto Calcinaia is that it is totally private without being isolated. Our nearest town is Anghiari, a five minute drive away, where there are many small shops and restaurants, a weekly market and a superb patisserie. We are also within a fifteen minute drive from several good quality supermarkets which stock everything from Amaretto to zucchini.

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.
