It was 2006 and I, a guide for hikers always around Tuscany, getting married with Michael and waiting for my little Julia. My life is at a crossroads I can not continue to work as before, I have 2 choices or try to teach or live the dream of my father to open Borgo la Fratta.
In the 2008 I have Clotilde my second daughter and at least Emma in the 2012. I love my family and I love that they can have wonderful time in this angle of peace.
It was 1973 when my dad decided to buy a house in the hills of Mugello. 1991: things changed in Mugello came Bilancino Lake, a large artificial lake, but so well designed that it seemed natural hills that were mirrored and the blue of Lake mingled with the green of the vegetation.
Began to be attended immediately by the people of Florence, Prato, Pistoia who caught the beauty and pleasure of this place and the good fishing that you can practice.
And my father fell in love, bought a former home of the Medici on the banks of this lake The house was a ruin with plants in and around a bush. My father was 60 years old then and he was tired, having started working at age 14, but not enough to give up the dream of re Borgo la Fratta and make it a place of relaxation and beauty ..... He worked for 8 years! !
The difficulties were enormous for permits, the work exhausting and very expensive, but it was his dream. Every little stone was recovered, stuccoed, the choice of materials prudent not to ruin a poetic and impressive with these walls sealing, large beams, buttresses. Recover and around the agricultural area with fruit trees, hedges and lawns. And here I have given my contribution to raising clematis, brambles and ivy growing over the large oaks and threatened to break them. I tried to furnish the apartments with the taste of a typical farm, but with the comfort of an apartment. We opened in the 2007 with only 5 apartments and no pool, the place was nice, but the pool needed.
2007: we finished the other apartments and finished the pool.
It was beautiful!! The customers were delighted, it seemed that the pool could touch the lake, the view from the solarium pool was a window on the Lake
