Salvatore Ferragamo Family Purchases Exclusive Villa Estate in Tuscany. Agritourism Never Looked So Good.

When you hear Salvatore Ferragamo you think "Shoes," gorgeous shoes. Well, Ferragamo through the years has evolved into an international fashion powerhouse since the times of Salvatore Ferragamo's small shoe business. I love fashion and I love travel. I mean, I'm Italian==of course I love these two things.

I was actually watching one of my favorite shows on NYCTV 22 and caught an episode of Video Fashion-behind the label, with Judith Licht. She did an expose on the Salvatore Ferragamo label and interviewed the entire Ferragamo family. She began with interviews on the traditional business but then what I discovered about the Ferragamo family is that they own different travel, hotel and villa estate businesses in Tuscany, Italy.

Judith Licht broadcasted her interview from the very exclusive Tuscany estate owned by the Ferragamo's called, "IL BORRO." Just breath-taking. An estate with views that you can only dream of, rustic, but yet high-end. They feature and offer everything on this estate. Agri-tourism, wine-making, wedding catering, and high end stays. This is the stuff you can dream of and actually visit. Now, if you have the cash flow to finance a trip to this locale, then great. But if you don't, I strongly suggest just checking it out online. It opens your eyes to the magnificent destinations in the world, especially Italy.

What's nice is that you can visit the town (hamlet) of Il Borro without paying who-knows-how-much to actually sleep there. It's been beautifully restored; it's a real passion for Ferruccio Ferragamo - or at least that is what he told us in an interview last week. Take a look and let the social media team of Tuscany (that's me and my colleagues) know what you think.
