The year before I spent much time finding an agriturismo up a hill with good access to highway and that had wifi and so chose Borgo Rapale. After we had booked the cute end unit "Jacopo" for my wife and I, we read reviews on trip advisor and felt even more confident in the choice we had made. What can I say, besides Gisella and Fortunato being great people and a great couple who run a relaxing and inviting Agriturismo, they were wonderful friends and literally life savers. We had booked 4 weeks at Borgo Rapale (we wanted to do day trips from 1 location). We spent 3 weeks visiting many major hilltowns, (Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, the Chianti towns - Rada, Greve, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra, Orvieto, Assisi, etc) when at the beginning of our last week my wife got severe stomach pains around 4 am. They got progressively worse the next day. Gisella and Fortunato, arranged for an ambulance from the town of Ambra to come up the hill to get her and we went to the regional hospital in Montevarchi. Within 1 day my wife had her stomach cut open to correct a twisted bowel. Fortunato helped me with the language (phoning the hospital) and the stress of dealing with this potentially life changing event and they visited my wife and me in the hospital. They are truly caring people and I can't say enough how much I appreciated their kindness and friendship. These people are truly amazing and if you are looking for a restful get away, with internet access that allows easy access to the Central and Eastern Tuscan /Umbrian hilltowns you can stop looking. You've found it!
Jacopo was were we stayed. One side with a view of the valley floor. A perfect location for a couple...
