I recently spent 7 days in Tuscany searching for the perfect location to gather a group of friends in 2013 for our 65th birthdays. Borgo I Vicelli was the very first property we visited and we were ready to choose it immediately! However, we continued our visits to other properties to be fair - but we ultimately returned to Borgo I Vicelli and have indeed chosen it for our friends next May. The owners were wonderful. We saw every room and every facility they have to offer. I was with a friend who has lived in Italy for 22 years and she and her husand (who is Italian) saw how lovingly the property has been restored. The rooms are richly appointed, the linens are gorgeous and the grounds are immaculate. The owners have been extremely flexible and reasonable as we discussed our thoughts for next year's activities. This is a "young" property, having only been a B&B for a year, but they are obviously being smart about building their business. It will be a real pleasure to work with them and to report back here after the celebration in 2013!
