“Be sure to check out the vineyard.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

One of the loveliest aspects of our stay was a walk through the vineyard. We wouldn't have known about it had we not asked, so do try to check it out.

The longitude and latitude navigation instructions did not work for our navigation unit. However the driving directions on the website were excellent.

Lovely pools and grounds, and a romantic setting. Late afternoon snacks and drinks were very nice and lovely addition.

The gym was just OK and in our opinion the bed was a bit too hard, but this of course is a personal preference.

Overall a great stay.

Stayed for three nights in May 2011. The hotel was very nice with scenic views of the Tuscan countryside. The restaurant was very good, but expensive. If you're looking for a peaceful retreat, this is a great place to stay. Just keep in mind that you'll need a car to travel from the hotel to Siena.

We had a fantastic stay at Borgo Scopeto. We had no trouble finding it - but do recommend typing the provided coordinates into your GPS, as we did. From the drive up to the Hotel - lined by beautiful tall cypress trees, the reception, the room, it was all top quality.

We were there for a blessing ceremony, and within minutes of arriving, we were sent a complimentary bottle of prosecco. The staff helped everything for the ceremony run smoothly and we received the best wishes of the managers. Before our arrival, all liaising with them was helpful and professional. It really was the perfect day for us!

There are two separate swimming pools, one tended to be a little quieter, the other had more families, which was great as you were able to choose. The Spa is very reasonably priced and the services provided very relaxing. In addition to treatments, there is a whirl pool, sauna, steam room and "emotional showers" (showers with different coloured lights).
Food and service at dinner again are outstanding - we especially recommend the home made Piri pasta for a primo piatti!
With many thanks to all the staff.

We stayed two nights at the hotel as part of a driving adventure tour. The arrival for all our cars was well organised and a special area set aside. The staff were great and saw to our every need. A special wine tasting was arranged for the group in the oldest part of the relais, that we relished heartily. We had a variety of rooms and ours wall very smart and looked south over the other buildings and the property. The morning sunrise was spectacular. The restaurant is first class in both food quality and service. and one of the highlights of this 21 day adventure. The grounds are elegant and well maintained and it is a wonderfully restful place to spend a couple of days off the road. Sienna is not far away adds to the hotel charm even if the road to and from Borgo Scopeto is narrow, requiring a good level of concentration. Overall Borgo Scopeto received a big thumbs up from our group and well worth consideration if you are looking for a more up market Italian hotel experience.

Room Tip: There are a number of different buildings in the complex joined by a gravel court which may be an is...

Firstly, the hotel is very hard to find, and even more dangerous to drive to at night. Make sure you get VERY detailed directions before going.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. We were upgraded to a spacious Suite, however, still the place is rather dull. Not much decoration, spacious but very basic room setup and clay tiled flooring.

We found out that the hotel has many group events/meetings, so we always end up sitting next to/running into people who are taking a break from their meetings. It makes us feel like we are staying in a business/conference hotel. The Staff also act like in business hotel - very cool, matter of fact like.

The breakfast and dinner was average. The Reception/Concierge area is very small and there is only space for 1 staff to help at the desk, hence there are always a few guests waiting for their turn to check-in/out/ask for assistance.

There is really not much to do within the property so we are glad we planned our days outside of the hotel.

Most likely will not return as the place is neither luxurious nor historic nor scenic nor charming.

We booked this hotel as one of the best in Tuscany for our first wedding anniversary. It is simply stunning. We were helped by the porter with our bags being taken to our room. We entered the room which was a little small but very pretty and found chilled champagne waiting for us.
There are two pools which are lovely the furthest one is salt water. We reserved dinner for 2030hrs and sat in the grounds having for ready for our evening. The waiter served us drinks and we watched and several families all with screaming young children dined in romantic and serene surroundings and spoiled our tranquility. We changed our dinner reservation to nine pm and thankfully the families started to leave but not all. I really can't understand why parents take young children to a resort like this is at is a retreat with no activities for children and spoils the peace for others.
Having said that dinner was absolutely stunning and again when we gave our room number the maitre de wished us happy anniversary and offered free champagne again!
Fabulous hotel where the staff can't do enough. We visited Borgo Scopeto vineyard some five mins drive away and bought a few gorgeous bottles!!!

Scopeto is a meticulously restored former historic hamlet in the hills just outside of Siena, now turned into a luxurious hideaway. It is surrounded by beautifully kept grounds and vineyards. It has a huge pool, superb spa, very good restaurant, amazing grounds and views, and last but not least, well trained staff who will do their best to make your stay memorable. We had booked only one night to celebrate a birthday, and got upgraded to a beautifully appointed junior suite in the main building with a small balcony overlooking the forecourt. Our room was absolutely spotless. We were told that Vanessa Redgrave stayed in our room when she filmed Letters to Juliet there. All rooms are air conditioned, have WIFI and the hotel provides nice amenities such as bathrobes and slippers for use at the Spa and pool. The Spa is new and I had an excellent and very relaxing massage. Although only 8km from Siena, you will need a car to get there (I suppose one could cab it there), but it's location in the center of Tuscany makes it a great base for exploring this region. Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona and Florence are all within an hour of driving. We had all our meals in the hotel restaurant and loved everything they served. The wine list is extensive and good value. Scopeto is the perfect place for a romantic getaway and we are looking forward to returning there again. A note for first-timers to Tuscany: distances are deceiving since the roads are so curvy. Allow at least 30 minutes for 15-20km of distance.
