Borgo Batone – a community vacation village in Tuscany
UPDATE June 2024 – Option for new shareholders

Nestled in the Tuscan hills around Lucca lies Borgo Batone, a European community with history and everything that makes a village a village: a grown structure of independent houses of different sizes, ages and functions, a well, a chapel, a village square and its own water source. The heart of the village is the 16th century Villa Barsotti, which has been lovingly restored with a keen sense of space and time. Delicate green shutters frame the view of the water basin in the garden. From here, pergolas with climbing plants descend towards the olive grove and orchard, while narrow paths, niches and steps lead to the other buildings on the hill.

6 of the 17 buildings are habitable – with Villa Barsotti in the center of the village playing a special role. A large double-winged door leads directly into the Sala del Tavolo, with its large table for communal culinary evenings. Here and there are charming nooks and crannies, simply furnished rooms and kitchens in which one or two things have been improvised, shared bathrooms or unplastered walls. The Borgo thus offers temporary living spaces with diverse room layouts and great communal areas, which are gradually supplemented by timeless and functional elements or special finds.

The 80 shareholders to date want to turn Borgo Batone back into a place worth living in, offering vacationers, families, friends and shareholders a cosy temporary home in the long term.
This year there is an opportunity to take on a handful of new members. As a shareholder of Borgo Batone, you acquire rights of use to spend time in the Borgo. Partial contributions help to finance the investment costs for the renovation of the buildings and thus make existing buildings usable again. The central management of the residential units makes it possible to live in different types of accommodation in a piece of home in Tuscany.
