Antico Borgo is a quiet and beautiful place but it's strength is the staff. Monica, Lucia and Tomas (forgive me, I forget other names) go the extra mile to make you feel at home and make sure you have everything you need. Tomas speaks perfect English and the others will make a good effort. If you need directions ask Lucia, there's a reason they call her the "navigatore umano". Over our four days here we were able to cover a great deal of Tuscany. While it seems to be in the middle of nowhere it is actually very centric to many of the historic tuscan towns. We visited Siena, San Gimignano, Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Florence. We even went back to Siena one day just for dinner at the Piazza. Then on our way back to Rome we stopped at Pienza and Montepulciano to close the Tuscan stage of our trip. We had room 22 which is isolated in one end of the property and has a very private outside area where we enjoyed wine and snacks purchased at a local shop in Le Grazie. In summary I would recommend Il Cardino to anyone with the time to drive around Tuscany but also looking for peace and quiet time.
