We were able to book this Borgo very last minute (less than one week before check in) at a good rate (880 euro for 4 nights, for 2 adults and 2 children, breakfast and parking included).
The Borgo is located a few kilometers from the small village Rosia, 30km from Sienna, 30km from San Gimingiano,... And is set in a small medieval, nicely renovated, village.
There are 16 appartments, all renovated in the original style. Our appt was huge: a large living and dining room, a small but well equipped kitchen (stove, oven, dishwasher,...), 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
Some minor negative points:hard beds, bathrooms in need of updating, small windows, not bringing much light in the appt, the road next to the hotel is quite busy so leaving the window open at night is not possible.
There is a pool (not heated), a tennis/football field, table tennis.
Breakfast is served on the restaurant's terrace, with pool view. The buffet contains everything you need, bread, cereals, fruit,... And the maitre and his 2 waiters are happy to bring anything else from the kitchen upon simple request, without any extra cost.
The restaurant also offers lunch and dinner at an honest price, and the food is really of high quality.
The restaurant team are really outstanding. Although their English is not that good, they bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. In fact the entire staff of the hotel are the best, always friendly without faking it.
To summarize: our stay at the Borgo Il Poggiacio was super and much too short.
