“Another great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We came two years ago and had such a lovely relaxing time that we brought our friends back to see this wonderful hotel and area. Susana the owner greeted us like old friends and as usual the atmosphere of the hotel was fantastic - the food cooked by Susanna was superb and as usual her knowledge of the area was outstanding. The views, the tranquillity, the food and the staff (Julian our waiter) were all excellent and we can't wait for our third visit - it was Tuscany at it's best.

We were concerned, before we left for Italy, that Le Boscarecce couldn’t possibly live up to the rave reviews it had received on Trip Advisor and other travel sites. We needn’t have worried, the hotel and its wonderful owner Susanna exceeded all our expectations. The rooms, 2 large en-suite bedrooms and a sitting room for us and the friends travelling with us, were bright, clean and very well appointed. The location and setting were perfect, the food in the restaurant was high quality and very good value, the service was friendly, the pool was lovely and the tennis court was in great condition.
Le Boscarecce is ideally located for visiting the principal Tuscan tourist sites and Susanna was a mine of practical information about them all – as well as pointing us in the direction of several other stunning Tuscan towns that we’d otherwise have missed.
Our first night coincided with one of Susanna’s pizza evenings. Over the course of the evening, as the sun set over the Tuscan hills behind us, we sampled at least ten different pizzas - all beautifully cooked in Le Boscarecce’s traditional brick pizza oven and culminating in an extraordinary and quite delicious dessert chocolate pizza! The next day was my wife’s birthday and Susanna, completely unprompted, produced a beautiful chocolate birthday cake to complete our evening meal. My wife and I are vegetarian and Susanna and her team produced a series of wonderful non-meat options for us every evening.
The world’s a big place and we would never usually consider going back to somewhere we’d been before – but I’m sure that we’ll make an exception in the case of Le Boscarecce. After all, if you’re going to Italy, why on earth would you want to stay anywhere else!

We just returned from our third visit to Le Boscarecce in Castelfiorentino, with the most wonderful hostess in the world, Susanna! If I could visit this place every year, I would. It is beyond beautiful, and the most relaxing place I have ever stayed. We had the privilege of staying in the room named for Susanna's grandmother, who was quite a woman! We also had dinner there both nights, and enjoyed some of the best food we have ever eaten. This is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime!

This was our second visit to La Boscarrece. I dont believe in revisits but this was an exception, it was as good if not better than last year. I could write lots of platitudes about Susanna and her lovely team but if i am really honest i dont want to tell anyone about this place! I want to keep our place in tuscany all to myself! Susanna made our stay so enjoyable that i am already hankering for our next trip. Our son would like to report that the frogs are all well! Thanks Susanna for our 5* holiday and we look forward to seeing you next year.

This was our second trip to Le Boscarecce. We have never returned to any place previously but we fell in love with it and Susanna the first time and it was every bit as good the second. This time we brought friends with us so we were a party of eight in total. It is a perfect base for all the major sights in Tuscany and for many of the minor ones too. The food is superb and the advice and guidance given by the tremendously knowledgeable Susanna is second to none. The rooms are beautifully decorated and each one with its own charms, the pool is heavenly surrounded by views of the rolling Tuscan hills and the gardens with its fruit trees and roses and scented jasmine make you never want to leave. All sense are catered for and children and teenagers are as honoured a guest as any adult. We also did a cooling course with Susanna and Maria which was great fun and we even produced delicious food which we have since cooked again since returning home. I could not recommend this place enough, the only thing that would stop me would be a fear that it will become much too popular and not available for our next trip. Thank you Susanna for another trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be beautiful.

My wife and I visited Le Boscarecce for the second time in June 2013. It is simply a marvellous place to stay.Susanna is most welcoming,helpful and the font of all knowledge regarding places to visit in the area and has a very useful little store of street plans of the main attractions.
The rooms are very comfortable,simply furnished and immaculately maintained.
We ate in the restaurant every evening from a set menu of typical Tuscan food which was very good,as is the wine list (Tuscan wines of course ).
The hotel has very pleasant landscaped gardens,well tended with a paved courtyard between the accommodation building and the restaurant.There is also a very pleasant swimming pool in the garden.
All in all Le Boscarecce is an ideal place to stay for exploring the surrounding area of Tuscany.

Situated atop a winding country road, woven through vineyards and centuries old olive groves, waited in typical Tuscan flair, was Locanda Le Boscarecce. The gated property was warmly opened up to us travelers from Toronto, Canada, by Susanna. She welcomed us with a familiar smile that made us feel we were at home away from home. Our breath was taken away from the gardens in the courtyard - large pots of every kind of fruit imaginable, vines of sweet scented flowers, a kitchen garden filled with herbs, an arched pathway of vines and a pond brimming with lily pads and frogs. All the rooms were quaintly named after female historical figures and decorated with historical fashion designs. The room was spacious and clean with a desk, dresser, an ensuite bath, walk in closet and kitchenette. The beds were comfortable and extra pillows and blankets were provided in a hope chest. Breakfast was buffet style and coffee was made to order. Dinner was chef's menu style following the typical Tuscan 4 course meal: Primi, Secondi, Contorni, and Digestivi. Everything we ate was delicious. We dined al fresco overlooking the properties rolling hills, olive groves and gorgeous gardens watching the sunset and the moon rising. Susanna and her staff made sure every detail was in place and even chilled a bottle of wine picked up in a local town we visited nearby. We have already recommended this place as a must-stay retreat in Tuscany as it is close to many of the towns boasting with both historical and modern la dolce vita, and will continue to do so in the years to come. It truly is "casa lontano da casa".
