“Villa Il Borghetto make guests feel very welcome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We have just ended our stay at the Villa. What a wonderful week we have spent, Cristina and Claudio and indeed Mum and dad have been wonderful hosts, with all our needs attended to. The location of the Villa to Siena itself is ideal with public transport passing by every 15 minutes. Our apartment was spotless, and the garden surrounding the villa was lovely. Will definitely be recommending The Villa Il Borghetto to friends.

We have just spent a wonderful week at the lovely Villa il Borghetto. Great postion for exploring fascinating Siena ,frequent bus service passes right by the door, and for relaxing on the terrace overlooking the large gardens and the beautiful tuscan countryside.Our apartment was really comfortable ,supplied with all we needed and more -thoughtful additions of coffee,tea,water, oil, condiments etc, even the first bus ticket to get us into Siena!.
Christina and claudio are very generous and welcoming hosts ,always ready to assist ,nothing is too much trouble.We would love to return one day.

Room Tip: our apartment had its own terrace, great to have your own place to relax.

Booked Villa Borghetto after reading some good reviews in TA. I wanted to be near Siena but not inside the city walls. This place is perfectly situated in a country setting just 2km from Tufi Gate. The rates are quite reasonable considering where you are. Cristina and Claudio were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to help us figure out the buses to get to and from Siena (10 min. ride) and to arrange our logistics. Il Chianti apartment was perfect for our family of four (two kids) and has two bathrooms and free WiFi. The garden area was a lovely place to have evening drinks under the Tuscan sun! Grazie a mille Cristina and Claudio!

The property was recommended by my husband's colleague, and it was a great choice. Three nights, and the place is delightful. The hosts are incredibly helpful and welcoming. They really care that your needs are taken care of. The family took care of many details for us, reservations for dinner, recommendations, etc. The surroundings are lovely, the suite is well appointed, clean and a great place to stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are spotless. And, there is free Internet. Outside is a lovely seating area. Compared to a hotel, it's spacious and has a lovely ambiance.

Both Cristina and Claudio were friendly, efficient, polite and very, very good with follow-up. Checking back to make sure we had everything that we needed. Excellent English, too.

Bus service into the city is excellent, taxis are efficient and inexpensive and it's more comfortable and quiet than a hotel in the city. It's easy enough to take the bus, do a little shopping and you've got breakfast or lunch. For me, I like being able to go into the city for a bit, come back for lunch, and rest and go back in the afternoon. It's so much nicer than a hotel. Next time, I might bring my car and take side trips into the beautiful country.

We had the apartment "Il Chianti" - a double bedroom, single bedroom and convertible couch. Also a bathroom with tub and bathroom with shower. I think it can sleep 5.
We will visit again.

Room Tip: Il Chianti was great.

I cannot recommend this accommodation enough. We stayed for 2 nights during a visit to Siena and surrounds and the hosts were simply magnificent.
This is a family operated establishment and it is easy to see that it means everything to them to ensure their guests are comfortable and feel welcomed.
Our villa had a master bedroom and a big main living area with sofa bed and easily and comfortably slept the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children). The furnishings are modern and practical and the kitchen has everything you need to be self sufficient.
They have a nice spacious garden where you can wander and pick fresh apples, pomegranates, and other goodies.
Simply great.

Claudio and Christine are really nice and helpful, the flat was clean though it does not deserve a 5 for it's decoration which was ... OK, the building itself is nice though in need work at the front. But was is not mentioned anywhere is that the building is stuck between 2 roads. So if you go outside on the terrace at the back of the building you can hear the traffic that is not heavy but constant and if you want to walk from the flat to Siena ... well really you cannot again because of the traffic and the absence of pavement.

We booked the apartment "Il Chianti" through wimdu.com. The welcome by Claudio was very warm and also the further contacts with Cristina and her brother Claudio were really nice. Tha apartment was great with 2 bedrooms and a convertible couch in the kitchen. In the kitchen you'll find everthing you need. The busstop in front of the apartmet takes you to Siena center in about 5 minutes and is preferred over the 25 minutes walk along a curvy road without sideboards. THe return from the city in the evenings we did by taxi.

All in all a great place to stay wenn you are in Siena withe a small group and don't want to stay in the overpriced hotels in the citycenter.
