Our next door neighbours recommended Il Borghetto to us when we were planning our holiday in Italy. We were late getting to make the booking and were delighted when we could be accomodated. There were four of us (myself, my husband, my brother and his wife). We were more than impressed when we arrived, despite the glowing reviews our neighbours had provided. Everything was better than we had imagined. Our apartment was spacious, beautifully decorated and well outfitted for our comfort. We were well located for our day trips to Cinque Terre, Cortona, Sienna, to wineries and of course nearby San Giminano. (We will see Florence next time!)The grocery store was very handy in Poggibonsi which was great so we didn't have to waste a lot of time on groceries. It must be mentioned how helpful and friendly our hosts were. Sandra, Nicolas, Simona and Ricardo were always available to help us with planning our day trips and to help with anything we needed. It is apparent they love thir work and care about their guests. But the best thing was dinner at the Villa!!!We had two of our all time best meals there. We jsut had to walk out our door and we were there. On the first evening we were able to dine 'al fresco' enjoying the spectacular view while we were treated to our first culinary delight. The second meal was very appropriately on the last evening of our stay. This time we dined in the wine cellar. We had so much fun meeting other guests and listening to Sandra's incredible C.D. while we feasted again on another fabulous meal. What a wonderful way to end our stay. We would stay at Il Borghetto again in a heartbeat and happily recommend it to anyone going to Tuscany.

Dear Sandra, Nicola, Simone, Ricardo and 'Mama', Dave and I cannot believe we have been home in England almost a week. Our thoughts are still with you all in beautiful Tuscany and we wish we were back at our little table overlooking the gorgeous countryside each evening, drinking another bottle of local red wine! Just wanted to keep in touch and let you know that we had the most wonderful holiday with you. We cannot express our thanks enough for making us feel so welcome at Il Borghetto, sharing your lovely stories with us, and feeding us with the most delicious food - an extra big thank you to Mama!! The view from our window in Campanina will stay in our memory forever. We feel so lucky that we found such a beautiful place to spend our holiday. The weather in England has been sunny since our return, so that is good news too! It has not been quite as depressing coming home to some sunshine instead of the usual rain. Well, once again, many thanks for such a wonderful holiday. We are hoping to return again next year if circumstances allow. Take care of yourselves and don't work too hard. Please keep in touch. Love and best wishes, Pauline and Dave Mitchell. xx

We had the best time ever at Il Borgheto. We immediatly felt home, welcomed by Nicola, Ricardo, Simona and Sandra. The appartment was beautiful, the service was great and the food was the best I've eaten in Italy! But most of all, the view is spectacular. Sitting in the garden I could not read a word in my book, I just kept glazing at the hills, the trees and the blue sky. And last but not least, they all were very sweet to our children. So yes, we will come back!

Auf der Suche nach einer schönen, ruhigen Unterkunft haben wir ganz zufällig das Il Borghetto gefunden. Dieses stilvolle Anwesen wird liebevoll als Familienbetrieb geführt und man fühlt sich von der ersten Minute an wie zu Hause. Die Ruhe des ehemaligen Landhauses inmitten von Weinbergen mit einer herrlichen Aussicht nimmt jeden in seinen Bann. Dabei muss man auf keinerlei Komfort verzichten und die italienischen Abende mit dem fantastischen Essen gehörten sicherlich zu den Höhepunkten unseres Urlaubs. Wir werden wieder kommen und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen mit Sandra und Nicola.

Un endroit paradisiaque au milieu des vignes et des oliviers, des appartements confortables et décorés avec beaucoup de charme, une famille très accueillante et disponible pour ses hôtes, une très belle piscine. Nous sommes conquis car nous y sommes retournés plusieurs fois avec toujours autant de plaisir. Aux alentours de belles villes à visiter (Sienne, Florence, Pise, Lucca, Volterra) ainsi que de très beaux villages et la région du Chianti. A recommander sans hésitation.

Il Borghetto is perfect! Everything for a dream vacation in Tuscany- friendly, helpful owners; beautiful apartments; best location for day trips; unbelieveable views; and the food is excellent! Our one week stay was too short. Hope to be blessed with a return visit! Thank you for the wonderful memories.
