apartments in the heart of Tuscany
The apartments in Borgo Amarrante at
Montaione are loaded with history
Borgo Amarrante lies at the top of a low hill with a view almost to the sea, where breath-taking sunsets are the back-drop to a landscape iof rare beauty.
The first inhabitants of these lands were the ancient Etruscans who preferred the heights to the flatlands because this way they had fuller command of the territory. Then the Longobards arrived and, in medieval times, the nucleus of Amarrante already existed with its own lookout tower. In fact, in the Middle Ages, the ancient fortification of Amarrante occupied a strategic position for the control of the roads connecting the municipality of Montaione with other districts nearby but, more importantly, those that led to the territories under the rule of Pisa. This area was on the border between the Republic of Florence and the Republic of Pisa, notably bitter enemies.
The complex, protected by the Province of Florence as a “historical heritage”, has been restructured with great care: local materials such as stone and wooden beams have been used and the original plan has been respected so that visitors are totally immersed in the atmosphere of genuine Tuscan tradition. The ancient lookout tower lost its purpose in the XVI century with the foundation of the State of Toscana, but has now become one of the apartments in our Borgo.

Scrivono di noi
A chi come me è abituato allo stress della vita cittadina, l'Amarrante non può che essere cara. La bellezza del posto, la tranquillità e la cortesia e disponibilità che ci si trova ti invitano non solo a soggiornarci ma anche a ritornarci (ed a me è già successo). Pace ma anche vicinanza alle più belle località turistiche della Toscana. Ideale, perché no,anche per un viaggio nei sapori della Toscana, ottimi esercizi ristorati i nei dintorni. E se ci andate non dimenticate olio, vino e liquori di produzione propria!
