First-class former lock-up
Tree-lined Tuscan estate
Situated in the sleepy town of Borgo on the 5,000-acre Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate, imposing Villa Chiusa is the village’s former police station. Remodelled by the stylish Chiara and Massimo Ferragamo – inheritors of the Italian shoe dynasty – this one-time coppers’ casa has now been transformed into an elegantly understated, Tuscan-styled villa: a far cry from its utilitarian past as the polizia’s headquarters. Tiled floors, beamed ceilings and rustic wooden furniture nod to the estate’s centuries-old heritage and antiques lend a touch of grandeur. Style never compromises comfort: the feather-soft beds, oversized sofas and working fireplaces ensure there’s always somewhere cosy to snuggle up. On summer days, meander through the lavender-scented gardensdown to the heated infinity pool, hidden behind tall cypress trees; from the expansive terrace, there are views for miles across the Unesco-listed Val d’Orcia.
