Giardini di Borgo69

Following our success with Fontelunga
we are bringing to Tuscany our new development
of 12 unique cottages for sale and rental
Giardini di Borgo69, opening spring 2020.


Villa Fontelunga

Our 9 bedroom Villa, classically proportioned and contemporary styled with spectacular views across the tuscan countryside. Villa Fontelunga can be rented as a whole or by the room.


Villa Gallo

Villas Gallo and Galletto are unashamedly contemporary in design but still with a distinctly Italian feel. Nestled in the secluded valley, they share a landscaped herb and lavender walled garden incorporating a swimming pool.


Italia By Design

At Italia By Design we aim to take a fresh look at self catering village holiday rentals in Italy. gone are the days of “rustic charm” accommodation; welcome to a new era of “contemporary holiday cottage chic”.


The Future ...

It was from their experience with these and other projects that the founders established their new company to manage their portfolio and build a platform for future investment as a luxury property development and management company
in the Italian holiday home sector.

Hip Italia (Hometels Investment Properties Italia) was established in 2018 as an investment vehicle, as well as a property and tourist management company based in Tuscany Italy. The founders developed their first property Villa Fontelunga, hosting tourists from 2000, then further expanded their business in 2005 with the construction of the contemporary Villas Gallo, Galletto and Scannagallo.
