In July 2012 we stayed at Il Borghetto and it was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids 9 and 13). We stayed in Il Picconaia (the pigeon loft) for a week and were extremely pleased with our choice. First of all, the family that runs Il Borghetto is clearly dedicated to assuring that their guests have a wonderful stay. We were late arriving due to being a bit lost, (get a good map in advance), and Nicola stayed late to make sure we weren't sleeping on the patio that night. (Thanks so much Nicola!). The setting is spectacular, you've seen all the other reviews. We had a really hot spell while we were there, so we would do a day trip to Sienna, Florence, or Voltaire one day, and another day to sit by the pool and sip the local Vernaccia and let the kids frolic. I never felt like I was "missing the sites" by relaxing at Il Borghetto. It's a treasure on it's own.

I took a cooking class and it was a real treat. A local chef from down the road showed a group of 9 of us a really delightful Tuscan meal (they let me squeeze in even though there was a max of 8 students), which we later shared together while overlooking their vineyard. Simone was our interpreter (fantastic!) and the meal was delicious.

I could go on about how wonderful this place is, but I think you get the idea. Stay here if you really want to get a taste of the peace and beauty of the Tuscan countryside, and enjoy immaculate taste and warm, welcoming comfort. (And if you are lucky enough to secure a reservation).

** Simone and Nicola ** the offer is still open, you should come stay in our place in Maui some time. (vrbo.com/77140). I know you would love Hawaii and the beautiful ocean.

Aloha and Ciao Bella!!

Beautiful surroundings. Very clean and big appartement with good beds. (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a large privat garden). Excellent swimming pool in a beautiful garden. We went 3 times to the restaurant were we had excellent diners from the family run kitchen. My wife had a very nice kookingclass. Because of the family you feel right at home.

Room Tip: We booked the large appartement with privat sunny garden.

This was our second visit to Il Borghetto. And again it was absolutely great. The appartments are all well equiped and beautifully furnished. We stayed in Capanna di sotto, next to the restaurant and with a big private terrace.
The location is perfect, just outside San Gimignano with excellent views over the Tuscany hills. The service and information provided by the hosts are also very good. Perhaps the best thing is the food. Three times a week you can enjoy an excellent Italian meal and splendid wines.
We will definitely return for a third time.

I was a single, female traveler while in San Gimignano. I was skeptical about the disance to San Gimignano because I didn't have a car, but I was stubborn and wanted to see San Gimignano. You MUST have a car if you come to Il Borghetto... especially in the summer! The lovely hosts drove me into San Gimignano once and to the grocery store once, which was very much appreciated. THANK YOU!
The Italian countryside surrounding Il Borghetto is spectacular! Il Borghetto is perfectly clean and the decor is lovely. The dinner's were exquisite and the views over the italian countryside was marvelous! It was my first time to try a "self-catering" place in Tuscany. Being a lousy cook and having to do dishes was a bit of a put-off, but again, I knew it was a self-catering place and was prepared for this. If this doesn't bother you then Il Borghetto is for you.

Il Borghetto was the perfect place to stay to enjoy and experience the Tuscan countryside in the most authentic manner. The apartments are lovely and very well appointed. Very clean, attractive decor that is both relaxed and elegant, all of the practical items you need and we had spectacular views of the vineyards and surrounding area from all rooms. The owners are wonderful - hospitable, helpful, warm and professional. We felt like part of the family in one way, and also highly valued guests. The food served at their restaurant is fabulous, and the proximity to other area activities (wine tours, ancient hillside towns, shopping etc) was ideal. Highly recommend staying there, and have already booked our return holiday this summer!
