Healing gardens

The harvest from our ever-expanding medicinal gardens is an integral part of life at Borgo. In the spa, we use only natural essential oils pressed from the plants in our skin-care treatments and a fresh cup of tea made from their herbs welcomes guests at any time of the day.

We hope that being immersed in the gentle embrace of our gardens acts as a healing salve in itself. The sound of honey bees with their silent hum of summer -- as they forage from one lavender bush to another -- becomes a meditation in itself, the air heavily scented with bloom encourages us to breath in its essence a little more deeply, the bird-song gives delight. The serenade of crickets may be the last thing you hear before lulling off to sleep at night.
