Borgo I Vicelli, a 16th-century village close to Florence immersed in the green of Chianti’s earliest hills in the enchanting atmosphere of olive groves and woods is now a Country Relais registered in the Italian Registry of excellence Historic Houses.
The owners personally took care of the conservative recovery of the main manor house and the surrounding residential agglomerations so that the design perfectly blends with the natural rural style. Light colours and antique furnishings alternate with pieces of Tuscan craftsmanship and small modern details with clean lines, such as the Wormhole mini wall lamps from the Brass Brothers & Co. collection, whose lampshade open on both sides and the specific joint allow to direct the light to top and bottom, or right and left.
Comfortable and welcoming environments created by the plays of light and the design of the Wormhole range conforms to different sequence and solutions. Studio picture lights and Urban geometric mirrors, both part of the Timeless collection by Il Bronzetto, reveal the classic still contemporary taste: chosen for the bathrooms, in natural brass finish, well conform to the taps chrome plating and wood.
After a forced closure induced by COVID-19 emergency, Borgo I Vicelli Country Relais has bravely reopened after signing the official prevention protocol “Historic House Healthsafe”, proving in this way the highest standard of health & safety measures in full compliance with the COVID-19 regulations.
