We've just arrived from this lovely place and we know that we'll come back again. Franco and his wife who own these apparments are really helpful and are able to recommend various questions/tips.
We spent one week with two other families (6 adults + 3 kids around 2 years and with one baby) and we really had lots of fun. But we spoke to other people/couples/families, who have returned for the six times and for twelfe times(!).
The swimming pool has superb view, you actually are in the middle of vineyards. For the children all ages are prepared toys, for adults books, magazines, table tennis, barbecue place etc. Next time we will definitely use more these things but for the first time you more explore how the things are going on, what is in the neighborhood etc.
The location is also very good - close to many historical cities, restaurants and bars different price relations, shops, local Chianti wine producers etc. The kitchens have basic but sufficient equipment but we visited everyday a bar/small restaurant 1 minute walking from our appartment, just cross the street. There is a local typical small restaurant where you can eat for very good money typical italian food.
I have to stress that although all apparments were fully booked we hadn't feeling there are many people and the people didn't disturb each other.
My only comment is that some apparments are in two floors and you can listen to noises, maybe it was coincidence but I had feeling people above us sometimes moved the furniture and stomped (but to be honest, I had to put to sleep my small baby and I perceive everything...). But no voices and conversation were heard.
We really like this place and we want to come back. Should you want to travel to Tuscany, there is no reason to look for another place. Borgo was recommended to us by our friends.
