We spent with a group of friends (3 couples and 2 kids aged 10-13) one week at Borgo San Benedetto in the first week of July 2012.
Borgo San Benedetto is located few kms from Montaione and quite close to famous Tuscan beeautiful towns like S. Gimignamo (25 kms), Volterra (about 50 kms) , Monteriggioni (50 kms) ,Siena (60 kms) and Florence (50 kms) so plenty of things to do for a day trip (except Florence which cannot be appreciated in just a day).
We stayed in Villa Tinaia which was a lovely 5 bedroom ground floor villa located within the complex of Borgo San Bendetto. The rooms were spacious and confortable and provided a very pleasant stay during our stay. We have booked few extras as the breakfast and daily cleaning. The breakfast was served outside on the terrasse of the bed & breakfast villa and consisted of sweet and salty proposals (croissants, home made cakes, local cheeses and salamis) and it was consistently good.
Close to our villa there were two swimming pools very well maintained and quite peaceful , we never had the feeling the place was crowded and this contributed to a nice stay.
What needs to be highlighted is the restaurant of Borgo San Benedetto called The Trattoria Toscana which was remarkably good. We ate there in few occasions and were delighted by the appetizers ,pasta and meat always prepared with a local and home touch. It should not be missed.
To summarize: if you are a couple or a family searching for a relaxing place immersed in the great Tuscan landscape , who wants to enjoy great food while being close to some of the prettiest hystorical towns Italy can offer , then, Borgo San Benedetto is a very good choice.
