TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 3 days ago

Where to start? Our stay at Il Borro was memorable from at least two points of view: First of all, we were there as part of a 3-day wedding party -- I gather Il Borro is very popular for weddings, and I can certainly see why. Every evening, there were cocktails on the lawn, fabulous dinners under the stars, multiple bands and orchestras -- even, one night, a fireworks display. There are enough different locations on the grounds that no two events occurred in the same place! During the day -- between tennis, swimming in/ lounging by one of the (3? 4?) pools, having a spa treatment -- there was no shortage of things to do. In fact, treating Il Borro as a base from which to visit nearby Tuscan towns is really (as others have suggested) a bit of a waste: If you're staying there, you'll really want to STAY there -- take advantage of the grounds and facilities, of your gorgeous room, of the stunning views, of the scent of the flowers -- as much as possible while you can. It's perfect as a one- or two-night respite from an otherwise busy driving tour of Tuscany and Umbria. As far as I could tell, all the rooms -- in "the village" (Il Borgo, with a "g") at least -- are different: They are, after all, fitted into lovingly-renovated old buildings up and down a cobbled "main street" that's barely wide enough for a golf cart. In fact, one of the charms of staying in Il Borgo with a group (like a wedding party) is that you're constantly bumping into friends and relatives as you wander about the village. For a day (or three) you're an Italian villager! A very pampered one. As one would expect -- given the Ferragamo connection -- everything has been done to a very high standard and is beautifully maintained: I can't imagine how large a staff Il Borro has, but it must be over 100. (I had been concerned about being able to get around such a large, and hilly, estate, but if you don't want to just wander there is always a staff-member happy to drive you wherever you want to go, in either a van, car or electric cart.) Sheets, towels, bathroom amenities are all top-drawer. The second way in which our stay was "memorable" came from the fact that -- through my own inattention -- I fell on my first day there, and injured a finger badly enough that it was clear I would need stitches. This was when the excellence and intelligence of the staff, and their level of service and dedication, really came into play. First-aid was wisely administered on the spot (by two members of the cleaning staff!) ... Il Borro management insisted on calling for an ambulance (though I would have been happy just to take a taxi to the nearest hospital) ... and also sent an English-speaking staffer to stay with me for the five hours or so it took for the necessary x-rays, surgical repairs, etc. The hospital staff were terrific, but what helped immensely was that I had a concerned, fluent Italian-speaker to translate between me and the ER team. The result? I now have an interesting scar and some funny stories with which to enliven my Italian-holiday report. Knowing that I'd missed the evening meal by the time I got back from the hospital, Il Borro's team even thought to lay on a hearty meal (with much-needed beer) waiting in our room on my return. Bottom line: I can't imagine a more beautiful place to visit and stay, nor can I speak highly enough of Il Borro's service -- in good times and in bad.

My husband and I travel each June to celebrate our anniversary. For this, our 27th,we chose to visit Florence and Tuscany. After three nights in the very busy city of Florence, we were ready for some tranquility, and we found that at Il Borro. The estate is an easy drive from Florence - and made especially nice with a stop at The Mall (the luxury outlets). We arrived mid afternoon. The moment you turn onto the drive with the enormous cypress trees you can feel yourself decompressing. We were very impressed with the warm welcome -- which made us feel immediately at home. Our apartment/suite was called 'Poeta,' so named for the profession of one of its inhabitants at some point in its history. Have you ever wondered, when visiting Disney's Magic Kingdom,what it must be like if one could stay in one of the picturesque villages they have recreated? That is the medieval village of Il Borro -- but made better for the fact that it is the real deal -- no 'creation' here, just renovation, and painstakingly done so by the Ferragamo family. The result is the most tranquil, relaxing place to be imaginable. We stayed five nights and had private guides arranged and drivers to take us to the surrounding cities of Siena, Cortona, San Gimignano, Arezzo, etc.... We also had a day of wine tasting in the region, which was heavenly. Il Borro makes its own olive oil, honey, and wonderful wines. We highly recommend the cellar tour -- and of course enjoy the wines throughout your stay while dining at any of the three restaurants! We did. The restaurants are each unique. The fine dining option is magnificent and especially at this time of year. Dining al fresco while overlooking the beautiful village is an experience. The food - presentation, service, taste -- all wonderful. We dined there three of our five nights and at the Tuscan restaurant the other two. Breakfast offers plenty of options and the same cheerful service. Another experience we thoroughly enjoyed was a private cooking class with Luca, one of the chefs. We went to a market with him and then returned to the class kitchen (the view from the window was heavenly) where we learned to make stuffed zucchini flowers, gnocchi, pesto, a simple but heavenly pan roasted chicken, lovely vegetables, and an amazing chocolate mousse. Wow! That was a highlight of our stay. The medieval village is home to several small shops with artisans who create their products there. I purchased a pair of beautiful sandals from the shoemaker -- made in Il Borro. There is an artist painting canvasses, a jewelry maker, and a leather shop with beautiful coats and belts. Check them out! We enjoyed both pools -- the one up by the spa and the one in the village - during our stay. They were tranquil, with beautiful views and comfortable chairs. The church in the village is a true working church that holds mass the first Sunday of each month. A certified copy of the Shroud of Turin is on display. There is some lovely art and a nice altar as well. You can even light candles there, as I did several times. The resident mayor of the village is 'Peepo' a striped cat with a big personality. He takes his official role of greeter and visitor very seriously,and you may see him on a bench or perched on a step from time to time. If we had one complaint it is simple -- our time here was too short. I will miss the fragrant scent of jasmine which is blooming throughout the village. This property is completely deserving of its inclusion with the Relais & Chateaux list as well as its five star status.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and were totally impressed by the setting. This village has been lovingly restored and converted into a luxury retreat by someone with impeccable taste. There are three wonderful restaurants.

My family (immediate + Sister In-Law and her family) stayed for four days at Il Borro. As you would expect for a 5 star location, the staff was fantastic, the food was great, and the weather was amazing. But the property is so much more than that. We expected to stay in a typical hotel type room. But when we arrived, we found out that the two multiple room suites we booked were actually in the village. It was truly magical! The location is stunning - It is worth every penny. As a little hint, take time to do the 5 km walk inside the property, it was quite interesting. I do have two great experiences beyond that - we were originally supposed be there over Christmas, but I had an issue that prevented my travel. Il Borro graciously worked with me to try to find an accommodation - and it worked out great. Also, the jewelry store in the village is great - especially David. My Daughter and I took his class and we made a unique bracelet, which she lost on a horseback ride the next day. David showed up and re-made the bracelet the morning we were departing. He really saved the day. These two experiences, guarantee that I am an enthusiastic supporter of this property. The Ferragamo's and their staff have done an amazing job.
