The farm holiday complex of Borgo la Torre can be found at Acqua Santo Stefano, a small village at an altitude of about 950 metres. It has typical late mediaeval Umbrian architecture with evident defensive characteristics. It is characterised by mighty stone-faced walls, by powerful wooden beams and tiled roofs. During the recent restoration the structure, faithfully preserved in its original lay out, has been upgraded both from a structural point of view and from the works of adaptation to modern comfort. Borgo la Torre is made up of two main buildings. The northern one made up from the evident structure of the ancient tower with scarp counterfort that also supports a vast farmyard and the building by its side made up of various housing units. The farm holiday complex is made up of eight apartments that reflect everyday objects used for centuries between the household walls in their names.

In this way il guardiolo refers to the curved wooden cage used to protect small children from the weight of the covers in winter, il capestio a wooden container used for sieving the grain or also as a cot for the new-born, il mantile recalls the hempen cloth, a fabric usually found in the home used to rise bread dough before being placed in the oven. The complex is surrounded by Oaks, century old Turkey oaks, Hornbeams, Maples and Hazelnut woods, by grassy pastures and arable land for organic cultivation. Unique nature that is enriched with colour with the changing of the seasons. The green of summer is overthrown by the reds and yellows of autumn, then covered by the snowy whiteness of the winter to then to return to being beautifully green in the spring. It is a place where it is still possible to listen to silence, where it is easy to renew the bond between ourselves and nature, where it is possible to rediscover the pleasures of the simple things in life such as a flock of grazing sheep or a horse ride in the woods following the ancient mule tracks.
