Lodging your important guests
Our suites and cottages
At the foot of the castle along the internal promenade of the Borgo, our 11 suites and our cottage apartments (Casa Verde and Casa Gialla) sit like gems set on a crown. Built over 600 years ago for the workers of the castle, these spaces were used as lodging, shops, stables, and sheds. The suites are located in two buildings across the lane from each other, allowing your guests to be centrally located. Each suite is a relaxing and private space with modern amenities and an atmosphere that reflects the intimate life of the ancient borgo.
No suite is alike, with each restored to preserve its own peculiarities—several have sitting rooms and fireplaces, some are on two levels. Each suite is painted in a color inspired by Giotto’s medieval frescos and features a larger-than-life portrait inspired by master paintings of medieval women. All of the decorative painting was done by Meg Roberts. Stay with Us on our website features photos and detailed descriptions of each suite. We’d be glad to make a recommendation for which option might fit your needs—just contact us.
The Pool/ La Piscina
Hidden behind handmade iron gates, is our fan-shaped swimming pool, lounge area and bar surrounded by olive trees and jasmine and protected by a dense and brilliant laurel hedge. The pool is an intimate place to relax immediately after arriving at the borgo or the perfect location for an aperitif with a few intimate friends.
The pool can be for your exclusive use, if you have reserved all of our 11 suites. Otherwise, your guests who stay at Il Borgo di Olive are invited to share it with our other guests at no additional cost.
For children of all ages
At Il Borgo di Olive, children can explore safely—of course with adult supervision at all times. The railings on the panoramic terraces are also designed for safety and the swimming pool, where children often like to spend their time, is completely fenced and access is controlled.
For those holding an event at Il Borgo di Olive, upon request, a room inside Enoteca Kabille can be dedicated to children, turning it into a setting where it is possible to arrange for childcare and entertainment for your little ones.
Overflow housing options
We have access to several beautiful local B&Bs that sleep between 8 to 14 people. There are also wonderful hotels in the neighbouring area that we can recommend.
