Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2014

At the end of April 2014, my husband and I spent 5 days here. We had decided to marry at the nearby San Galgano Abbey, wanting a simple civil ceremony in a beautiful place steeped in history. We found the Abbey through the Borgo, otherwise we would not have been aware that civil ceremonies could take place here. The staff at the Borgo were wonderful every step of the way. Claudine, the Resident Manager, took charge, organising all the legalities with the local mayor's office - including all the pre and post follow up required to get our wedding certificate. She also made sure that all the important things were perfect - from peony roses for the wedding bouquet and table piece (beautifully arranged by resident florist Vilma), to a phenomenal degustation dinner orchestrated by the very talented sous chef Paolo (his wife makes the most divine desserts) coupled with wines specially chosen by the resident sommelier Simona. It was particularly cold that night so we couldn't eat outside as planned so the team set up the wedding dinner in a romantic private room with a blazing fire and 100% exquisite attention by the Restaurant Manager, Jean-Luca. The service is outstanding at every level! We were just two people having a private wedding without any guests yet we felt as though we received as much attention, care, time and thought as a wedding where there might be 100 guests. We felt that the staff really invested in us and they became the much loved local family at our wedding. Thank you Claudine and everyone else who made our wedding and honeymoon just perfect.
We chose to stay in the Giardin di Fiori room and would highly recommend it if you don't want to splurge on a suite. It is a spacious room, has its own open fire and a perfect outlook over the gardens. The house and the gardens are spectacular. If you set your expectations on the pictures on the website, you won't be disappointed - it is even more beautiful.
We didn't leave the Borgo much during our stay - don't be too busy driving around that you don't have time to really just "be" in the house and the gardens. But we did have a special day driving to Montalcino - one of the beautiful Tuscan hilltop towns. There is a place to have wine tastings of Brunello wines that we highly recommend if you like wine. You must also visit San Galgano Abbey (and the restaurant/cafe) and also wander down to Palazetto for a pizza or relaxed dinner if you are staying for a few nights.
We hope we have the opportunity to visit again and would have no hesitation recommending it to others. We made the perfect choice for such an important occasion.

We are holding our wedding here this September after falling in love with BSP at the start of last year after searching countless other venues. Everything about this hidden gem, exudes pure luxury, indulgence and charm. The service is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble. The planning of our wedding has been effortless too. 2 days simply won't be enough. The staff are all so helpful , warm and friendly and we absolutely adore the very charming Gian Luca who really makes BSP feel like your home away from home. If this was the last place on earth I'd visit, I would be extremely content! Nowhere else lives up to its beauty. Roll on September!

We attended my husband charlotte's wedding celebrations here over three days after her and Karim's ceremony at the nearby beautiful Abbey san Galgano. It was a wonderful experience. The staff and the setting was superb. The first evening was a welcome party for the 100 guests, the next day was the formal wedding breakfast with live band and DJ into the small wee hours. The next days informal, farewell brunch in those romantic, idyllic settings made for a never to forget wedding.

BSP - a place to tell everyone about and no one about!
Our stay was my surprise 50th present from my husband, it was simply magical. The balance of formality and informality from the staff was just right. Our room was something from my imagination, the grounds formal with lemon trees, then secretive spots to stop and relax. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning sun is a must, the treehouse bar has the feeling of a safari lodge and dinner in the restaurant superb.
It was hard to leave but memories remain, triggering smiles and a deep sense of relaxation

We're glad you've discovered our little "secret" Loretta! Most people don't realize what's beyond those iron gates. But, as you noticed, there are plenty little nooks and crannies to relax amongst our vast 13-acre estate. Hope to see you again soon!

By the time we were dropped off at the right Borgo, having been driven to Cortona and Borgo San Pietro by mistake it was nearly 7 hours in a car, but as soon as I walked into the doors of the warm, enchanting, candle lit home, hotel, I breathed deeply and let the drive, the hectic days of Venice and all the crowds melt away into this magical villa that was to be our home for 5 glorious days. They escorted us on to the lawn, to comfortable chairs overlooking the valley and offered us a drink. The next five days were the relaxation we needed combined with a few excursions to Sienna, and neighboring villages in the rolling green hills of Toscana. The staff was warm and friendly and gave outstanding service. The food was delicious, especially loved the breakfast which is included with your room. Our room was a superior room and overlooked some of the magnificent, manicured 13 acres of English gardens, ponds, children's area and hideaways to read or just relax. The infinity, salt water pool was delightful and at the edge you felt you were overseeing the great valleys and mountains surrounding with no other structures in sight, I have never been to a place that thought if every detail and managed perfection so beautifully. In our 6 weeks of travel, this was by far the most special, beautiful place we stayed and I know I will return. The front desk manager insisted I buy this book, " House of Wind, by Titania Hardie, which being a large hardback was another thing to carry, but having finished it two days after my return to beautiful Maui, I only wished I harps read it before I arrived. I recommend both the Borgo and the book and read the book first. They are building a fitness center and a larger spa, but the massage was outstanding!

Room Tip: I would probably choose a garden suite but loved our Superior Room.

This place really is the definition of paradise. It is a bit off the main road so you can drive right past it, but once you find it, heaven awaits. The grounds and accommodations are magnificent and the food is excellent, but if you have dinner there, it is a very expensive proposition, but worth it. Right up the hill is the charming little village of Chiusdino, which adds even more to the charm of the stay at this wonderful place. I highly recommend this beautiful place...

Room Tip: Ask for accommodations that are not in the main building. You will enjoy a patio and small yard wit...
