Reviews for Il Borro Relais & Chateaux
Il Borro was everything they promised and more! Beautiful property, luxurious room coupled with the most accommodating staff! We had the best time ever! I would go back in a heartbeat. The wine tour was wonderful. The meals fantastic. Great spa, lots of activities and nice base to explore Tuscany. We did day trips to Montepulciano, Siena. Florence is also near by. My parents were traveling with us, every time they needed to go somewhere on the property, a car would come to take them around. I can't recommend this property enough.

If not for my wife's day trips, I might not have left I'll Borro during our 4 day stay. I spent each day climbing the hills beyond the village on a borrowed mountain bike. Every breakfast and dinner was amazing, we tried many of the wines, the beer, all terrific. We loved this place in early May.

The hotel is like a small village located on the fantastic grounds of the Ferregamo family's villa. The rooms and suites are located in a charming medieval village, where the facades have been kept, while the rooms are completely updated. Surrounded by vineyards, sunflower fields, beautiful private grounds and an amazing garden, this is one of the most beautiful hotels I've visited. Pools are a short walk away - as are restaurants (three), gym, tennis courrts and the stables. The reception and the soccer field is a bit further, but there are small golf cars to take you around the hotel. The food in the two main restaurants are "fine dining" and there's a small cafĂ© for lunch. Being there with kids, the experience is that it's all a bit too fine and quiet, both in the restaurants and by the pools. The kids' menu options are limited, there are not toys, playroom, games or drawing stuff. The place is mostly targeted at couples. The service was generally good (reception, guest services), but the restuarants and the cafĂ© suffered from lack of a real service concept. There was a large gap between thye good waiters and the not so good. There were two-three really good, and the rest seemed very inexperienced and a few even rude.
We recently spent a week at Il Borro, staying at Villa Casetta one of the separate 3 bedroom villas that are part of the estate. The Villa is located 3 minutes by car from the main hotel (you do need a car), with all the facilities and services of the hotel available. An enormous breakfast was delivered every morning and set up for us. There was so much food that we had plenty of left overs for lunch by our pool! House keeping came each day and serviced the villa as well. The villa is fully furnished in the style of a Tuscan farm house / villa, very comfortable beds and good linens. Each room had it's own ensuite with separate bath and the house was fully air-conditioned. There was also a washing machine and fully set up kitchen / fridge / dishwasher. The private pool was fabulous and essential in the summer heat! We had dinner a couple of times at Il Borro, the pizza night outside by the main pool was our favourite. We also had lunch at the cafe which had really good salads. Our children had horse riding lessons at Il Borro (they've never ridden) and loved it. Highly recommend the horse riding as the horses were all in great condition & very easy to ride. Il Borro is a medieval village which is definitely worth walking around and looking at (only takes 1 hr max). I'm not sure about staying in the hotel rooms as we didn't see those, but can most definitely recommend Villa Casetta. Would also say that the staff are amongst the best we came across in Europe. All tremendously professional, friendly, engaging and helpful. We didn't meet one staff member who was anything less than sensational.

We were guests for a wedding at Il Borro and had the most fantastic time there for three days. It is difficult to describe how beautiful the grounds are, how well appointed and unique the rooms are and terrific the service levels are. We stayed in the little village with a charming square, a few shops, and a beautiful pool. There are several pools around the property. The wedding dinners leading up to the ceremony and the reception were progressively spectacular with beautiful settings and delicious food. All the guests I spoke to could not say enough good things about their stay including the bride, groom and their respective families. It too bad this scale only goes from 1 to 5, because this place is a 6.
