“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I have spent a fair amount of time in Italy, and I honestly can not say that I have been more impressed by a hotel. The staff were extremely helpful, and very friendly. The rooms were quaint, and clean. These necessities can be found anywhere, though. What really sets Vescine apart from the rest is the place itself. The view from the pool allows you to see the sun set over another city, and it is honestly one of the best sights I've ever seen. The hotel itself is nearly a thousand years old (restored of course), and is breathtaking. All of the ancient stonework is incredible. The 'borgo' is like a very small village consisting of maybe ~10 buildings. Whether you are looking for a wine retreat, or just want one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany to get away, it truly doesn't get better than this!

After three days in Florence Region Villa De Olmi we took the wine route of Chianti . Last minute booking and decided to stay at Il Borgo di Vescine just outside Radda on the main wine route. It was a little difficult to find but definately possible and not too terrible getting lost in Heavenly Tuscany. Borgo Di Vescine is just lovely. Like a tiny hamlet set on the side of a mountain of its own and stunning views. The rooms are like little chatlets with their own little terraced areas to enjoy your own private view of this stunning area. Not good if you want somewhere that is easy to get around and girls definately "No Heals" but certainly worth it. Rooms are rustic but big and have all you need including bathrobes, wifi, minibars etc.... Stunning little pool with honesty bar and icecreams. Residents just signed what they had taken and were charged on departure. Perfect as you could help yourselves whenever you wanted. Wines were stunning and we sat and had our own little tasing overlooking the views! Restaurant was simple and delicious and again with beautiful views and very pleasant staff. only thing to remember is that it does have the odd insect about as you are in the middle of the countryside but as long as you protect yourself from the odd bite they will not bother you. Its a great location to base yourself and also if you wish to dine off site you are very close to Radda which is a stunning little town. on our last night we decided to pay a visit and it was the Watermelon Festival. The whole town were dining in the square on huge long tables and eating local produce and of course Watermelon for desert. Live music playing and families of all generations dancing. It was magical!! Thank You Tuscany for making my dream come true. This is just the beginning I will return once again with my wonderful partner Dustin.

me & my husband were stayed at this hotel at july 2011 for two nights(3-5/7/2011) after traveling a few days in tuscany, and i was very enthusiastic to find tuscan style accommodation.
after half day of searching we found the right place-
the area is very beautiful & quiet,the room was very nice and clean (& had a good smell in the room)
the women at the reception made us a good discount...and helped us with our planning trip
the breakfast was good (with vegetables!!!),eggs,meet,fresh bread & cheese & was served on a balcony outside of the building in a very beautiful place.
the only thing was interrupting me was the bed - it wasnt very comfortable
but...we definitely recommend this hotel or visit in the future!

what a wonderful place to unwind. Vescine is located right in the centre of the Chianti region and wonderful people to boot.
Finally Italy has a vineyard who know how to present themselves for wine tasting. Sitting in the beautifully set garden overlooking Chianti you are served your wines are brought out to you to taste, one at a time, in correct order. served along with some lovely bread and Vescine oil, Belle Vescine.

This hotel has now a new manager and staff, and I can really recommend it. The guest rooms have been refurbished and updated. If you want to based yourself in this area for a great holiday, this hotel is ideal for day excursions into the surrounding areas. It is a converted village so all rooms are different, but most have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The restaurant serves an excellent breakfast on the outside balcony, and we enjoyed dinners served by the attentive staff. English is widely spoken.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony which faces over the surrounding countryside.
