Reviews for Il Borro Relais & Chateaux
Ferragamo family know how to host customers. Once you join Il Borro you can stay inside for days, the little mediaval town is now "the hotel" and everything is like a fairy tale. Food, activities, pools, wine cellar etc... I'd love that my whole country could be like this place, well preserved and simply perfect!

A Great experience The Wedding I Planned at Il Borro! It was difficult to find the best spot, The best location, as they were all very special! Also a Great Team helped us with The Catering, Wines and Wellcome our guests as "The Royal Family" Many Special Thanks to Giulia , Stefano, Ricardo and Claude wich I had more contact! Wait for me! I'll be back soon!
It's a real experience to stay in a stone house in a small medieval village, under the Tuscany sun, to bike in the vineyards and olive plantation near by. The renovation of Il Borro village was perfectly done maintaining the traditional elements and up-grading to the luxury of our time. Fantastic place, fantastic views! The food was excellent, the staff was very nice, we really taste the Tuscany from another century.

We just spent three days at this fabulous property. Everything is top shelf and the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The grounds are spectacular. What a terrific setting for long walks. The restaurants were great, particularly for breakfast where the buffet was sensational and the service fantastic. We defintiely plan to return, soon.
I can not call it a hotel only, it is an experience to under why Tuscany has that reputation and known among the elite travelers. I have travelled so much and as you know Italian food is in every corner in the world; in il borro I had the best italian food in my life, with an after feel that I have never experienced with other italian food, even in Italy itself. I would eat massive dinner every night, sleep late and still wake up at 6 with the sun feeling light & energetic, FOOD IS BEYONG REPROACH, delicious, traditional, organic, seasonal & obviously healthy. One of the best breakfasts I had in my life. The property is a historic "borgo" which is a group of stone built homes forming a small village with a castle & a church, I was staying in a small medieval Italian village basically, with the modern part (Spa, restaurant, infinity pool) built in a way that doesn't disturb the ambience. It was a life changing experience, very invigorating environment with bicycles available all the time to bike around & within the village, or outside toward the nearby, small town of San Giustino Valdarno. Horse back riding in the vineyards and booking a picnic lunch is also a must activity to do there. Spa can be upgraded, but it is not an issue as walking there alone is a therapy. il Borro is a must, with any price tagged for the night, it is one of a kind experience with elegance of Ferragamo family all over as they are the owners.
