Borgo Gallinaio
Ranked #6 of 14 Monteriggioni B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Borgo Gallinaio lays in the middle of nowhere and close to all Toscany must sees like Siena (only 10 km), San Gimignano, Volterra and Firenze. Even Pisa and Lucca are within reach.
Borgo Gallinaio is a small scale hotel with very nice and clean rooms of a former farm, now totally renovated.
There is a swimming pool available in the middle of several trees.
Dinner can be ordered, however, there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity.

Room Tip: All rooms are OK (clean, quiet and cooled)

A great place to stay: nice clean and large room, friendly host, delicious breakfast with all fresh and self made bread and other stuff.
The view you have to the town of Monterigionni is magnificent! A place surrounded by green, olive trees and nature. This place has a lot of charm!

We stayed here for 4 nights in April 2012. Alessandro is very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We sat on the balcony on our last evening with a meat and cheese platter and bottle of wine and watched the sun go down over the nearby hill town of Montereggioni. The place is spotless and so peaceful. Very relaxing and friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location, very peacefull. Our room was spacious, cosy and superclean! Breakfast was very good, we also had dinner there every evening.
This was excellent, local dishes, so you get to try new things, and every meal was delicious! Deborah the waitress is very nice, has a big smile every day. Overall a pleasant surprise, a place to go back to!

If you search for a place to relax, enjoy the quietness, listen to nature, like to take a walk through nature or make a bike trip, you surely have to go to Borgo Gallinaio. It's a beautiful hotel in the middle of nature with a very friendly staff. Alessandro will tell you all you need to know about the area. But it's also not far away from beautiful cities like Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra ..... After a long day you can relax at the swimmingpool. Breakfast is also very good with different kinds of bread, meat, cheese, fresch fruit and so on. The rooms are nice and clean! A nice place to stay among friendly people!

Pleasant welcome and stunning from the outside. Basic rooms. Probably needs a thorough clean as cobwebs not always a welcome sight in a room. Pool is great as lost between the olive trees. TV very dated and only 2 channels. Fine for staying the night and relaxing by the pool but don't expect to want to spend time in the room. Recommend for the region and for a great spot if you want to relax between the vines an olive trees.

I stayed here for three nights with extended family, including children, and the entire experience was wonderful. The rooms were immaculately clean, wonderfully air conditioned and the atmosphere welcoming. The breakfasts were typically Italian: fruit, bread, cheese, meat with freshly made coffee. We ate there one night too and the food was very good indeed. Some of our party were vegetarians and this posed no problem at all. The courtyard where we ate was lovely and on the upstairs terrace there are spectacular veiws over the vineyards. The grounds are beautiful: you apporach Borgo Gallinaio via a long drive and feel you are truely 'away from it all'. A walk through olive groves and gardens takes you to the swimming pool which is far enough away from the sleeping accommodation to allow children to have fun at all hours of the morning and night and not worry about disturbing others. There are a few biting insects though so take insect repellant especially at night.
Overall, I can't fault it and would recommend it wholeheartedly to others.
