“Nice Tuscany experience”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

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.

We stayed for a week in Borgo San Benedetto. Firstly it is ideally located to explore the Tuscany region. It is in the triangle of Florence Sienna and Lucca. The place itself is set in lovely fragrant gardens and consists of a main restaurant, a B&B, and several nicely renovated farm houses or villas. The villas are simple, functional, clean and very pleasant. They have one to suit any sized party. Let me start with the people. The staff are simply delightful. They could not do more for you. Luciana, the owner, is a wonderful person who introduced herself to us and befriended us while we were there, and even gave us the cooking class we had booked, which was simply wonderful. The restaurant is far superior to what you could reasonably expect in such an establishment and is rated by Guide Michelin. The food is exquisite. People come from all around just to eat, even if they are not staying there. The gardens are relaxing and beautiful. Something is always in flower. They have two swimming pools and a tennis court. This is what you dreamed a Tuscan holiday could be. the nearby village of Montaine is charming and there are any number of such villages to pass through as you go to the bigger centres. there is a wonderful gallery at Vinci and numerous interesting things to do in the countryside. Personally I will be recommending this place to my close friends and I will be going back some time.

Room Tip: book in the restaurant, it is wonderful and do the cooking class whether you cook or not

We went with our 2 little children (5 and 3 years old) to Borgo San Benedetto. We had a really good holiday. The accomodation is very good and everything is very clean. On Monday evening there was a barbecue, organised by the family Masi. The food was delicious. They own also a extraordinary good restaurant "Casa Masi". The swimming pool was very nice with more then enough relaxing chairs. The appartement was very beautiful and clean. We had a nice holiday and hope to go once again in the future.

Borgo San Benedetto is a lovely spot in Montaione. It is ideally located central to more crowded Tuscan areas and easy travel distance to Florence, Sienna, etc.

Rooms are clean and simply appointed, hostess, host, and team are friendly and throughly professional. Restaurant is outstanding!

Wednesday night they had a 'House BBQ' that not only was delicious but allowed us to meet and socialize with other guests from various countries.

Great for a family reunion, plenty of outdoor space and pools were immaculate.

Hope to return some day.
