“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stayed here last July and found it the ideal holiday with our children. Having booked a family suite (2 bedrooms with idyllic views over rolling countryside) through Expedia at a very good rate, we were set. A lovely pool, ancient olive trees to read a book under and closely located to the sights of Umbria we couldn't ask for more. When we stayed here the renown Umbria Jazz Festival was taking place in Perugia, and at just 20 minutes drive away, we were able to pop in and out for the various free open air concerts without having to worry about noise or crowds should we have taken a hotel in the centre. Yes, Borgo Brufa is incredibly tranquil, very elegant and, most importantly, comfortable. Our favourite day trips were to Gubbio, Assisi (eat at La Stalla for rustic fare), Bevagna and the towns around Lago Trasimeno. We love Umbria and if you want picture perfect, then Borgo Brufa is the way to go.

Room Tip: We thought the suite was excellent value for our family of 4. Beautiful view, too!

We only stayed here one night on our way down to the Almalfi coast. It was tough to leave the next morning!

The grounds are beautiful. The food was good, as was the service. Loved our connecting big rooms with views.

I think that's the best pool I've ever swam in. I love the jets and being able to swim indoors/outdoors. The only bummer was the fact it closed at 7pm so we had to hurry out, but the staff didn't push it.

We wanted to hit the road but succumbed to the temptation to take another dip before leaving.

Wish we had stayed longer!

This place is amazing! In a quiet area of Umbria, not much around but the hotel is beautiful. The staff are great and the rooms were lovely. Had a lovely dinner here. The breakfast is good, try the cereal and honey croissants. The view is lovely from the pool area. Didnt try the spa treatments as I was only there for 3 days on a fleeting visit to Tuscany but I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I will definitely be going back. Its worth hiring a car though as it really is secluded. If you want a luxurious quiet holiday then definitely choose the borgobrufa.

Borgobrufa is a fantastic place. It has everything; the location is just lovely with a view over the rolling slopes of Umbria and the town Perugia, a "benessere" area with heated pools, sauna etc etc and all the guests are walking around in their bathrobes. The rooms are a little small but nice. The food is excellent and the service is great! The only area for improvement is the Internet connection which is far to slow and not available all over the place. Don't miss this wonderful hotel if your are in the neighborhoud.

Just back from a four days stay at BorgoBrufa, and it's been one of the most relaxing experience I ever had. The hotel is really nice, a few building scattered around on the top of a hill in the middle of the Umbria countryside. The location is perfect if you want to do a bit of tourism - it's pretty close to a lot of interesting place, both touristic and off the beaten path: do not miss the Museo del Vino in Torgiano, I'll write a review apart for it as it's a real gem - but above all this the right place if you want to pamper yourself.

The spa is simply heavenly, especially the heated outdoor/indoor swimming pool. After sunset, we had the really magical experience to swim in the dark (but with a very clever game of light and coulours) immersed in hot water and sorrounded by eerie vapors, under a starry sky and with the lights of the nearby countryside in the background.

The spa in general is big enough not to be bothered if there are a lot of people (with I can happen during the weekend), with a lot of options included in the admission fee, that for us was included in the room price. The treatments, in my opinion, are a bit pricey, but worthwhile anyway. I highly reccomend the "Percorso Salino", a truly amazing experience.

As the spa is open also to people who don't stay at the hotel, I imagine one could save a bit of money sleeping elsewhere. But how can you beat the relax of swimming in the dark until is dinner time, than go back to you room, change and sit at a really nice dinner after a few minutes?

We had a very comfortable suite, perfectly clean and with all the amenities you can expect in a 4 star hotel. The staff was helpful and unfailingly kind and efficient, Internet connection in the rooms is via cable and wireless in the hall.

What else? We had such a lovely time we'already looking forward to be back.

The hotel was delightful. They made us very welcome and couldn't have done more for us. The rooms were very comfortable, well appointed and very clean. The setting was beautiful and the pool and gardens were lovely and very well looked after. The restaurant was excellent thanks to the head waiter Francesco and his staff and the food most enjoyable.We would very much like to come back to the see the finished wellbeing centre.Rose and John Kersh

Borgo Brufa is set in the Umbrian countryside surrounded by lovely views but not far from all the major cities (like Assisi and Perugia). The hotel is organised like a small village with several small buildings and a central restaurant / bar / reception area - you will need a car. The rooms are fairly new and very clean. The swimming pool is spacious (with an outside bar) perfect for relaxing in the sun and the staff warm and welcoming although it cannot boast the most efficient service (despite also catering to conferences). What we ate was very fresh (the croissants at breakfast were particularly good)!
