Our History


Borgo Sorripa is a very small and cozy Tuscan hamlet that, while hosting four beautiful apartments and a stunning villa for holidays, continues to keep the simple and charming life of any small town in Tuscany.

My name is Mario. I am the owner and the one who takes care of the gardens with patience and love. I discovered the first apartment in 2004 during a casual stroll to Montaione, a small town in central Tuscany near Florence, Italy: it was love at first sight.
Pushing a bit farther than the village of Montaione, I came across this hamlet and fell in love with the magical atmosphere, the countryside, and the wide view of the hills. I started to dream about how nice it would be to restructure the hamlet, returning it to the rural splendor of the past, and providing other people with the opportunity to enjoy the landscape and the environment, so quiet and friendly.
So I bought and renovated what is now the apartment Mansarda (attic) and then gradually adjusted the other ones to create a veritable albergo diffuso (widespread hotel), which combines the intimacy that only a home can provide with the cheerfulness of a small hamlet and the convenience of hotel services.
A warm welcome by Mario, the founder ... now a happy grandfather who dreams that her granddaughter will carry forward this great activity with the same passion that he put into it.
