I normally don't write reviews but after reading some of the recent reviews for the Case del Borgo, I felt compelled to comment on our fabulous stay. We rented the Papavero villa for a week in May for a family vacation. Our party consisted of six adults and one toddler.
The hotel is perfect for both couples and families traveling. The villas are very private and well appointed. The staff was very friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. No request we made was declined. The kitchen prepared a simple dinner of pasta and salad the night we arrived, as we were too tired for a full course meal. The mamas even prepared a surprise birthday cake for my son, who was turning two during our stay. (The staff saw he would celebrate his birthday when they copied our passports, as is the Italian custom.) The service was impeccable.
We chose the Case del Borgo because we were looking for a more authentic Tuscan experience than what you'd typically find in a full service hotel, but with more services than a villa rental. The property certainly exceeded these expectations. It is well situated in a small, picturesque Tuscan village. It's a great base to see the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria, as well as Florence.
This was our second trip to Italy and between our two trips, we've stayed in at least six different high quality hotels. By far, the Case del Borgo was our favorite accommodation.
