“Lovely Agriturismo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

Delightful agriturismo situated just a half km outside the gorgeous walled village of Montecarlo. The staff are very friendly and helpful - it has the feel of a family run business.

Borgo La Torre consists of a small number of hotel rooms and apartments on a working vineyard. The hotel rooms are contemporary and comfortable with beautiful bathrooms, the apartments traditional and spacious.

The food in the restaurant is delicious, and the wine divine (produced on the vineyard). There are also some good restaurants in the village. The road to/from the village is mainly unlit at night, but we found that the hotel had provided torches in the rooms.

There is free on-site parking, and a swimming pool/sunbathing area in the grounds.

We loved it.

We stay here every year and have never been disappointed. The front desk staff: Federica, Lucia, Antonio, are all exceedingly hospitable and helpful. The restaurant is terrific and the cuisine of Elisabetta and Chiara superb. It is an agriturismo and their wine and olive oil are both outstanding. It is conveniently located a few minutes from the autostrada. We've stayed mostly in the apartments and they are spacious, well equipped and clean. The hotel rooms are modern and very comfortable. Our most recent stay included a catering for my sister's 60th birthday party which was very well done. Every course was superb.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor have wonderful views of Montecarlo.

We stayed at the Borga L Borgo, a working farm situated below the ancient village of Montecarlo for 3 days in September, and loved every minute of it. The accomodations, the location and most importantly the people.. We scheduled for a cooking class with Elisabetta and Chiara – two remarkable chefs who had just brought home first prize at the La Rotta del Vino competition. With a lot of help from our hosts we prepared gourmet dishes like faro salad, taconi, gnocchi, tortellini, and ravioli, pork loin stuffed with herbs and juniper berries and fig flan before sitting down together to enjoy the fruits of our labour along with Stringaio, their estate wine. The meal was awesome if I do say so myself and the company even better.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2009

Hotel has a great spot under the walls of Montecarlo, and an excellent restaurant/wine shop, but that's where the problems start. It seemed to us that the focus was on these two facilities, with much of the rest of the facilities in need of a update - the pool and children's play area especially. The staff are friendly but often hard to track down (!!) but the only word that we could think of to sum up our stay was that the whole enterprise seemed 'lazy'

We stayed at La Torre for my sons wedding for 5days, we almost took over the whole place. The hotel rooms are modern and very comfortable, with good bathrooms. The appartments , done in Tuscan style are very large, and comfortable. The pool is a very good size with good seating all around.

The setting is perfect, a great place to stay to tour the area.

The food and wine is really good, and the staff were fantastic!!
They could not have been more helpful. we were a party of 50 people, nothing was a problem.
Can'y wait to go back.

Excellent location to visit all the great cities in Toscany and a great place to stay in general. Nice pool and rooms but even better food and service.

I cannot wait to return!
