Relais Borgo di Stigliano
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Sovicille
Reviewed September 18, 2008

LOCATION:
A small hamlet – about five minutes walk down to the “centre” – and the only restaurant (closed on a Monday – you would need a car to use a restaurant in any neighbouring village!) Lovely converted villa with swimming pool and terraces overlooking Stigliano and the surrounding countryside. Ample parking available in the grounds.

SERVICE:
The few staff are all female – standard of service varied but on the whole OK.

ROOMS:
Clean and spacious, nicely furnished, with wooden beams, AC, mini bar, TV, seating area. Well equipped bathroom with shower over bath. Views over Stigliano and Tuscan countryside.

RESTAURANT:
Breakfast was OK, fairly basic fare and certainly not the best we had in Tuscany (we stayed in 7 hotels!) – cereals, breads, yoghurts, croissants, cheese, cold meats.

They don’t cater for dinner but that isn’t a problem as you can use the restaurant 5 minutes walk away in the village (Le Torre di Stigliano). Dinner there was excellent - we found the service was good (though they struggled a little as they were so busy and only had one waitress on), the outdoor setting lovely, the menu had a very good choice for us, and the food superb. We stayed at the hotel for three nights, and ate there every night (but then we were on a cycling holiday and didn’t have much choice!)

THINGS TO DO IN THE LOCALE:
Stigliano is a quiet hamlet, and we used the hotel as a time to chill by the pool, walk through the woods etc. This would be a good base to visit Siena and the hilltop towns – we particularly liked Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Castellina in Chianti.

SUMMARY:
A good hotel for a quiet day or two, or to use as a base for touring the area!

This accommodation is equally perfect if you want to relax or explore the wonderful Tuscan countryside. The accommodation is beautifully designed and matches the local village architecture. The rooms are all comfortable and spacious and the pool is fabulous. The staff are all very helpful and Moira in particular could not do enough for us. She is a real asset. The breakfast is served on a lovely terrace, which just helps to wash away any stresses you may have felt before you arrived. The accommodation is ably supported by the lovely Stigliano village restaurant.

No real complaints about this accommodation, other than perhaps making barbecue facilities available for those that might want to cater for themselves.

We stayed here here for 5 nights this September, and just loved it. It was very peaceful and quiet, yet close enough to see Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and more on day trips. My 7 yo son thought the pool was fun, but it was too cold for us. The restaurant in town was very nice, as were the other ones in towns anywhere from 5 - 15 minutes away.

They also had the cutest resident kitten; if anyone goes there, Alice needed to be adopted!

This has some excellent reviews , which encouraged us to choose it. Although it is a hotel, the rooms are laid out so that you can sit outside in the nice outdoor are where there is a swimming pool. Our fridge was broken but they got it replaced ( after a day ). The staff, all female, are excellent, they will do anything to help. The location, in a quiet village in a quiet part of Tuscany is wonderful. Shower and bathroom lovely. Bed, large and very comfy. Air con good and easily adjusted. Breakfast is on the tarrace as the sun rises over the village nearby, it's really nice. Choice of food and drinks excellent, they had Earl Grey tea and that made my day! Nearby is a village restuarant, expensive for what it is but in Sovicille a few minutes drive away you will find an excellent pizzeria/restaurant. From here it is very easy to reach all major areas of interest such as Siena, Volterra, Montepulciano. It looks ideal for children as well ,as there is room for them to run and play ( supervised of course ). The staff loved the children staying there, as all Italians do !

Whilst travelling around Tuscany and Umbria we had one night's accommodation. This B&B provides excellent value for money. The rooms are large but sparse, the lounges, terraces and pool area are excellent. Breakfast was enjoyed on the terrace outside. There is an excellent restaurant in the small village (200 yards) which the staff kindly booked us a table for. It is also local to Siena and San Guiminano. We would definitely return and would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful small friendly hotel about 20 minutes south of Sienna. Ancient building, totally renovated. Beautiful pool area.
Tiny village with one restaurant but many lovely places to eat in the surrounding towns recommended by friendly staff.
Breakfast patio view of castle buildings.
We stayed in a large room on the second floor.
Web site not great but well worth pursuing.

This remote location adds to the charm of this property. Complemented by an exceptional staff, our week stay was a pleasure. I travel to Tuscan often, and plan to stay on any opportunity. Some fun dining experiences in Stigliano, or short drive to Siena.
Perfect get away!
