We were very excited to come to Il Borro - our fifth destination on our September long trip in Italy. The drive from the Relais La Suvera in Pievescola was enjoyable, the Tuscan countryside could not be more scenic. The Ferragamo Estate lies on the beautiful Valdarno Hills and not surprisingly, it is truly a beautiful corner of the world.... More

Very rustic and beautiful property. Unusual hotel in that many rooms are in an old village totally refurbished. Although husband in his 80's, we were able to navigate the inclines and transport was always available to take us to car and restaurants on site. Totally different hotel experience. Nicely done wine/art tour. Great location to visit Tuscan towns. Room a... More

The grounds are nice and this place has potential, but it just didn't live up to my expectations. Overall the staff was dismissive and unhelpful. It was difficult to get someone to provide a map or tour of the property, service was slow and inefficient, and the rooms are in need of a serious upgrade. The restaurant at il borro... More

Il Borro is unique, set in a beautiful setting - a place with soul We LOVED it- we loved the people who worked there- eg Fabrizio and Christian at the Tuscan Bistro who looked after us and made sure we made the right choices ( a wonderful place- starting from the free hors d'oeuvres to a regional menu served with...

I can't recommend this venue enough. When searching for a venue for my wedding I had in mind the beautiful Italian romantic fantasy. I was drawn to the usual collection of venues on the Amalfi coast and in the lakes of Italy. I found it very difficult to find the relevant information about the different venues and felt probably like... More

Shoe makers dont not make great hotel experts. They have a long way to go. If you want to be guinea pigs, this is the place. Service is amateur to pathetic. Managers are nowhere, forget it wasre of money. Takes 1 hour to get to the rooms, 1 hour for dinner, checking out. We left after 12 hours, will never... More

I just spent 2 nights at Il Borro and wished it was more. We arrived very late due to our own special directions, which took us to San Giustino in Umbria instead of Valdarno (instead of following the directions we went rogue with a map!) We had an amazing 2 bedroom unit called Scritatore (the writer) and it was one... More

A marvelous quiet "secret" place, absolutely worth a visit. An exceptional balance of comfort, traditions, elegance, luxury and simplicity. Excellent famous wines, great dining experience, rich breakfast. We will be back without a doubt.

Beautiful villa. We rented a three bedroom apartment, everything was perfect. Wonderful restaurant. Staff was very nice and the tour was enjoyable. Easy travel to surrounding towns. No one in our group was mobility restricted, but I could see that this might be a problem. A large car or van would not be easy to maneuver up through the village,... More
