Borgo is a farm resort which rises out of its rather drab environs as an oasis of quality and calm. It is very difficult to find the entrance but once you do you will be greeted by beautifully kept lawns and flower beds and a prettily restored cluster of rooms based around a central communal area. Fabio is very welcoming and helpful and his English is perfect. There is not much to see or do in the immediate vicinity but most guests are happy to stay by the beautifully landscaped pool and lawns. The rooms are small and dark, a welcome break from the sun. There are shaded areas outside if you want to take your meals al fresco but the cooking facilities are quite small. Breakfast is served as an extra in a nice outside room but the quality is poor, which for a "farm resort" was
disappointing. Instead of fresh local produce we were given supermarket pats of butter, dry bread and stake cake, tired fruit and jugs of weak coffee - given the cost of the rooms this was very poor value and needs to be improved. There is nothing for children to do - table tennis for instance could be provided. A lot of money has obviously been spent on renovating these beautiful old buildings so it is a shame if the quality of the architecture is not matched by the quality of the food and overall experience - you expect more for these prices.
