Reviews for Il Borro Relais & Chateaux
Planning for our honeymoon I looked at hundreds of properties and wineries all over Tuscany. After watching their video "welcome to IL BORRO " I knew must go here. IL Borro's film instantly takes you to their gates showing the unappalled beauty and tranquility of the this very special place.. Unfortunately we didn't have too much time to spend in Tuscany because of our trips around Italy so we just booked one night. After being on property for about 20 minutes we called and canceled our hotel in Florence for the next night to stay a second night at IL Borro. This was worth every penny! WINE TASTING We had reservations for the 3:00 p.m. wine tour and tasting. This is a must for a wine lover but would still be very entertaining for anyone. I found the price to be ridiculously cheap for what you got out of the tour and tasting. Two white wines and four red wines were served during the tasting, all were very good. After the tasting in the cellar you are then able to go to the wine store to buy whatever you would like or get shipped straight to your home. If you are going to buy some I do recommend that you do see what is available in your country. In the U.S. only 3 of their wines are available to you, so I would get what you are not able to at your home straight from their winery(Alessandro Dal Borro is a very special bottle) DINNER We made reservations for Osteria del borro (their premier restaurant) that night. We looked over the menu and everything looked good, I did know before coming to dinner they do offer chef prepared tasting menu's. We are not usually up for ordering a menu that you have no clue what is on it but.. we were only there for two nights and thought this would be a great way to taste a lot of different dishes. We did the chefs 8 plate tasting, all smaller plates that are perfectly thought out and in a wonderful sequence. You must do this if you are not going to be staying at the property for a long time. This was one of the most delicious dinners we have ever had but seemed to be taken to another level because of the experience that the chef and the staff delivers. All servers were amazing but ask to be sat in Leonardo's section. His wine expertise and attention to detail on a complete dinner service are second to none. BREAKFAST WAKE UP for breakfast!!! Not a huge breakfast person but the spread was ridiculous. Pretty much anything you could think of, Smoked swordfish was fantastic ! SPA After breakfast we both headed to get massages. The masseurs were great and we both really enjoyed the whole spa experience. POOLS The skinny pool at the top is the spa's pool, very beautiful but.... we loved the pool at the back of the property. This hidden pool has a stocked bar, wonderful place to just relax. EXPLORING/SPORTS We went for a hike and used the map given to us, had a lot of fun just walking around and exploring. Make sure to look at the shops, they were all very nice and had stuff for everyone. We didn't end up going to the golf course but I did look at it. It was very well maintained and definitely worth the small fees to play or hit balls. Horse riding and the other activities were not on our radar. VINCAFE Perfect place to get food or snacks during the day, we basically tried everything on the menu and you couldn't go wrong on any choice. Great wine selection and a wonderful view to enjoy. ROOM Our room was wonderful! It was classic but had every modern update you could need. The entire room had surround sound for speakers which were awesome! It did have wifi and I'm sure the room had a tv but we never even thought of one because of the countless things you could do here. SERVICE Working in the customer service industry I look at all aspects of service. I have not one complaint of our entire stay here. The staff is onboard with wanting to offer the highest level of customer service and it was wonderful to be treated so well. We had countless times were a staff member went above and beyond their job description to offer the highest level of service. Personal tour's of the houses wine cellar by Leonardo after dinner with recommendations of storing vintages for our wine cellar and hand delivered breakfast 5:30 a.m. for our early departure were just some of the moments that made this place even more memorable. Overall With high expectations, IL BORRO delivered! A castle to yourself ,world renowned wines with Michelin star quality food, and countless activities for all ages make IL Borro once in a life time experience for any guest. If you haven't booked yet and you need some motivation go watch "IL borro > Statue of David" on vimeo. Enjoy!!

We needed a quiet weekend. This restored medieval village certainly gave us peace and quiet. We caught the train to Arezzo from Firenze then after a look around Arezzo, took a taxi to il Borro. Check in was friendly and efficient. Our room was spacious and quiet with all amenities. We took a wine tour but we are not big wine drinkers, I had a great massage then on our way to dinner we visited the artisan workshops. Dinner in the Bistro was good quality and good service. The resort is quiet and we slept very comfortably in the beautiful bed. Great shower in the expansive bathroom. Breakfast was great with maximum choice to meet all needs. We set off for a long walk through San Augustino Valdarno before ordering a taxi at around 1pm to go back to Arezzo. Had lunch in town then took the train back to Florence well rested.

Preparing for the wedding of our daughter we both had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main restaurants of il Borro an hour drive from Florence. What a quality of both local Tuscan and Italian food. One word: outstanding

Everything at Il Borro was perfect. The estate is beautiful and the medieval village is truly unique. The pictures can't really show the true beauty of the place. The room was very spacious. We loved the two swimming pools (especially the one hidden in the forest). The staff was very friendly and helpfull. You can eat a light lunch at the poolside which always was delicious and in a very reasonnable price range. We also enjoyed the restaurant downstairs and especially the delicious breakfast. A few points of improvement: It would be nice if the restaurant downstairs/breakfast could be held with a terrace, especially in the hot summer mornings/evenings. Also we noticed that the bread somehow lacks a bit of salt, but this seemed to be the case in whole Italy. So not very important critics :-) I would definitely book this hotel again for the lovely estate, the friendly staff and the great range of activities (horse riding, hiking, biking, truffle hunting etc... and lots to visit in this region). Already looking forward to a bigger golfcourse in the future!

What a magical place and what stellar service ! Just beautifully appointed rooms - took us back to an era of decadent luxury ! The views from each of the exquisite room was to say simply spectacular with the cacophony of birds early in the morning awaking you to a gorgeous dawn ! The group cooking we did together was the highlight of women bonding over great food and wine ! Just simply delightful !! If in the area a must visit place
