Reviews for Hotel Borgo San Felice
This could easily be one of the most beautiful properties I have ever visited. The location is charming, set among the rolling hills of Chianti. The property is an old town that was bought, renovated and turned into a hotel. The different buildings have either rooms, restaurants, a spa or the winery. We stayed in a suite in the same building as the front desk and bar area. The suite was massive with a wonderful seating area, large separate bedroom, a separate toilet and bidet and a tub/shower/sink room. The room was perfectly appointed, the bed and furniture was extremely comfortable and there was ample storage. The room came equipped with a safe, spa slippers and robes. The spa at the resort is amazing! There is a dry sauna, a steam room with a cooling shower, three separate cooling showers that include a mist, rain and a bucket of cool water and there is also a circulation area with one hot pool and one cold pool that you walk back and forth through. The spa area has a selection of teas and snacks that are included and very comfortable loungers. There is a large change room with lockers and there are a few treatment rooms that they offer massages in. We didn't get a massage while we were there but the other guests were extremely pleased with their massage. There is a small gym area with limited equipment but you are in the heart of some of the best cycling in the world so that is a better option if you want some exercise. There is a working winery on site that you can tour and purchase wine from. I would recommend a tour as you get to see their library which has an impressive selection of older vintages. We sampled a wine from 1994 while on our tour! The bar area is comfortable, but I would recommend watching the pricing on the drinks you are ordering! A Hendricks gin and tonic will run you $18 Euro so if you are buying a round for friends and family, expect to pay a little more as a captive customer. The restaurant was acceptable but pricey. I would highly recommend getting off property and heading into one of the many small town close by for lunches or dinners. There are some fantastic restaurants close by or pizzeria's where you can have an amazing meal with fresh made items for an extremely great value. Plus the experience of eating in a small village is not to be missed. Check out the town of Pianella or Sienna if you are able! The one item that is important to note, make sure you ask the cost of a cab ride if you are going to use one! The cab's come from Siena and start charging you from the time they leave Siena. You will have a bill of about $40 Euro by the time they get to Borgo San Felice so you can expect a $60 Euro or greater bill ONE WAY for a cab ride. Just something to keep in mind as the front desk staff did not inform us of this which perhaps they should have. There is a great little Michelin star restaurant close by (about a 5 minute drive) which I will be reviewing in a different thread so make sure to check that out as well.
A wonderful place to stay, you will feel like in a fairy tail. I loved the comfortable beds, soft covers and linen, the toilet is stylish, the wifi works well for tuscan conditions. The windows are sounds proof, but still offer you an authentic tuscan feeling. The breakfast is a nice spread where you will find good local and italian products. Highly recommend, but be prepared to pay the stay. If you have problems taking stairs or are on a wheelchair, make sure you talk to the reception in advance.

This winery turned hotel is a fabulous place to stay while in Tuscany. This fully functioning vineyard and winery is an amazing place to stay. With several buildings containing 4-6 suites each, this small estate is the perfect place to feel like you're really in Tuscany. The rooms are a little dated, but the grounds and restaurants are amazing! Both restaurants are great! We even did a cooking class with the chef. **travel tip** if you stay here, drive to Volpaia. The tiniest town, but eat at Osteria Volpaia! Delicious!

Amidst the rolling hills of Tuscan vines sits Borgo San Felice, quite literally a village (albeit a very small one) that has been transformed into a luxury hotel with it's own spa, pool, vineyard, olive oil, tennis court...the list goes on. The property is stunning and you could easily spend the duration of your trip idling from the vast breakfast buffet to the pool to the tasting room to the spa â€” you get the idea. When the itch to explore strikes, Borgo San Felice is adequately equipped to arrange custom tours of the surrounding areas. Consider a car ride down to Montalcino to sample Brunello from the source or take a day trip to Sienna or hop on the hotel's excellent bikes and wind your way through Chianti country. Its location makes Borgo San Felice an excellent headquarters for your Tuscan adventure, while the property is so relaxing you'll be reconsidering said adventures as soon as you check in.
We have been going here for 14 years and it only gets better The addition of a casual dining trattoria is terrific The rooms are beautiful as are the gardens Staff friendly and helpful all this and beautiful Tuscany
