I went there to my good friends wedding and it was a blast, a stunning wedding and everyone was happy, even the sun showed it's face after weeks of bad weather. It was magical. The borgo has breathtaking views, the cutest place ever, buildings and rooms were renovated with beautiful attention, superb furniture, lovely garden, helpful staff on site, all was great.
Except that the night before his wedding the groom who was already on his knees, had dozens of phone call from the frantic owner of this beautiful place.
Everyone knows how stressful a wedding is to organize, but she did not care and gave him hell all the way. Once all the crew mounting the tents and dance floor were far gone, she asked him to remove the dance floor as it could mark her lawn. So the groom had to do it on the morning of his own wedding!!! Then as the weather was a bit cold, she said that he will have to pay extra for heating all the guests rooms (everyone was already paying 80 Euros a night and we filled up the entire borgo with friends and family during low season)
At this point the groom was sweating and asking me for aspirin (true). How can someone who rented her place for a wedding could treat the groom this way is beyond me!!! Everyone felt sorry for him and we all tried our best to help him out. This is unacceptable. This stunning place could have had a 5 star review from me, but I have to make a point here. If your planning to have your wedding at Borgo del Grillo, make sure to have a wedding planner so he or she can take all the blows, as the owner from hell will do her best to screw you and your wedding.

Room Tip: Room 14 was stunning.

Borgo del Grillo is situated on a very beutiful hill dominating the Tuscan coutryside. The resort is surrounded by nice forests, wineyards and oliveyards. It's composed by 3-4 cottages in real Tuscan style, each building has either self-catering apartments or rooms. Both are spaceful and nicely furnished. In the sorrounding you can visit the pretty villages of Sarteano (about 10 km far), Cetona (15km) and Radicofani (20km), all of them are usually off the the beaten tracks of main touristics flows. Apart from the nice views, the garden and the pool, the resort doesn't offer any other attraction. There isn't a restaurant, a bar, a spa or a gym despite the whole location is huge. Wifi only available in the reception and TV in rooms only equipped with cable-tv and no SAT channels. Summarizing: the place and the location are very beutiful but the service and teh atrractions offered are poor.

We (family with two young kids) enjoyed the place and especially the panamoramic views were breathtaking (sunset over the Tuscan hills). As someone else also commented we found the hostess however not very welcoming and moody. Also the fact that she was lying at the swimming pool in between the guests for a big part of the afternoon felt a bit awkward. Please also be aware of the off road conditions that leads you to the place.

The location is simply amazing, and the "borgo" was restored really well with taste.
The swimming pool, always clean, is quiet and big enough for kids to have fun and adults to relax.
The apartments are big and well equipped even if it is not very clean (dusty under the beds or cupboards- under a cupboard I found a popcorn and a liquorice).
The manager is a bit "moody", sometimes very friendly, sometimes she ignores you.
The maintenance guy instead is very friendly and helpful.

It's a very nice place, so quite and nice place.
A place of total relax, good also in outumn period.
Staff very kind and rooms are cleaned.
There is a welcome with a good bottle of red wine.
A good braekfast.
Better to go there with a no sport car because of you have to go in a white street for few meters!
