We have been to Borgo dei Fondi in July 2019 with our 2 kids (7 / 5 yrs). There we had the ground floor apartment which has a modern kitchen and bathroom, one separeted sleeping room and a living room with an additional sleeping couch. The apartment was very well equiped - we missed nothing! Especially we enjoyed the AC at night.
The pool is also very nice and the kids loved it. David and his wife took very good care of the whole property wether it is the buildings, the pool-side or the garden which is beautifully arranged with many olive trees, lavender or fig trees.
Due the the shortness to Siena, we have been there 4 times in one week just for a couple of hours or for shopping/ diner.
We spend a unforgetable week at borgo dei fondi and enjoyed the special hospitableness of David and his wife.
Quiet, beautiful location, all the amenities you need, we were on a 4 week holiday so the washing machine was a life saver. Each part of the villa/apartment has a separate sitting area, ours was a beautiful vine covered loggia. Lovely pool surrounded by rosemary and olives. Not far from Siena, but feels very much in the country. Owners really helpful, particularly with local shopping and restaurants and really friendly too.
The Borgo Dei Fondi is an ancient farmhouse located some 10 km from Siena, in the middle of the famous Tuscan countryside and surrounded by beautiful forests. The house has 3 apartments and we stayed in the ground floor of "il for no". The apartment is a cosy but ample one bedroom apartment with all the necessary facilities, including kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffee machine and even an oven. There is a satellite TV available as well as a complete bathroom with a big walk in shower. The whole apartment is fully air conditioned.
Our hosts, David, Simona and Vittoria have been absolutely fantastic: helpful, giving advice and tips on where to go and what to do and, when a minor issue occurred with the air conditioning they strived to solve it quickly and efficiently. The property has a washing machine available, as well as a barbecue for your private use. Another thing worth mentioning are the private gazebos for each apartment, which allow for a quiet dinner without disturbing or being disturbed by the other guests.
The swimming pool is lovely and, if you get the chance, don't hesitate to take a walk through the neighborhood and discover the restaurants in the surrounding villages (you'll be amazed by the fantastic food and wine you get in even the smallest places). All in all, it is a perfect place to discover and enjoy Tuscany and Siena. We will return, that's for sure!
Very nice antique house very well renovated and fully furnished. The living area space is very large and luminous. The land is well taken care of with trees and flowers. The pool is perfectly located in the garden with sun until late afternoon. Perfect for relaxing after visiting central Tuscany. The villa is 15min from Siena historic center. It is very easy to visit the surround areas of Siena. David, the owner, is extremely generous and helpful. We highly recommend the stay at Borgo Dei Fondi. Perfect holidays in Tuscany. Thank you David for going the extra mile!
