I went there to my good friends wedding and it was a blast, a stunning wedding and everyone was happy, even the sun showed it's face after weeks of bad weather. It was magical. The borgo has breathtaking views, the cutest place ever, buildings and rooms were renovated with beautiful attention, superb furniture, lovely garden, helpful staff on site, all was great.
Except that the night before his wedding the groom who was already on his knees, had dozens of phone call from the frantic owner of this beautiful place.
Everyone knows how stressful a wedding is to organize, but she did not care and gave him hell all the way. Once all the crew mounting the tents and dance floor were far gone, she asked him to remove the dance floor as it could mark her lawn. So the groom had to do it on the morning of his own wedding!!! Then as the weather was a bit cold, she said that he will have to pay extra for heating all the guests rooms (everyone was already paying 80 Euros a night and we filled up the entire borgo with friends and family during low season)
At this point the groom was sweating and asking me for aspirin (true). How can someone who rented her place for a wedding could treat the groom this way is beyond me!!! Everyone felt sorry for him and we all tried our best to help him out. This is unacceptable. This stunning place could have had a 5 star review from me, but I have to make a point here. If your planning to have your wedding at Borgo del Grillo, make sure to have a wedding planner so he or she can take all the blows, as the owner from hell will do her best to screw you and your wedding.
