Il Borgetto is quite hard to find up an unmade road but it's very much worth the effort. It's a small estate of converted agricultural and residential buildings in the local vernacular. They are quite understated and finished to a high standard. Ours was simply decorated and equipped with basic cooking facilities. Each has a small patio area with a table to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink. Being on a hill, all the views are fantastic. We saw this straight away when we ate our first meal on arrival. Sitting in the loggia eating beautifully cooked local cuisine as the sun set over the Tuscan countryside was exquisite. The food, cooked on 3 evenings, is great value with a good selection of local wines.
We had a massage organised by the friendly and accommodating staff - very pleasant. We also had a lesson in Tuscan cookery from the gorgeous Patrizia with whom I'm a little in love. The pool is large and a good gathering place for the kids. We had an illicit skinny dip or two under the stars - I'm sure no-one minded... All in all we had a wonderful stay at Il Borghetto and would recommend it strongly to families and lovers.
