This was the first time I had stayed at an all inclusive location. Alessandro was a most gracious host. He made us feel totally at home with yummy breakfast baskets and choice picks of local restaurants. The villa we stayed in was beautiful, but lacking a/c. August is very hot, so the nights were a bit warm. Each morning we sat on the balcony and enjoyed the beautiful views of vineyards and a castle in the distance. We also had an Italian cooking lesson with Barbara, which was so much fun. My first ever attempt at making homemade pasta...and boy, did we do good!!! Loved it!! Will plan a return on our next trip to Tuscany. Thank you to everyone at Il Borgo for making our stay a truly wonderful experience.
