“When can we move in?”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Ahhh. We are homesick already for this place and I know we will return as soon as we can. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. Love the drive up appeal of a country, gravel road, yet the proximity to nearby Poggibonsi is super convenient for groceries/pharmacy, etc. Simona and Sandra are warm, welcoming and friendly. And their eye for design is impeccable. We stayed in the smallest apartment and still had a breakfast nook, upstairs loft area and charming kitchen, plenty of space to spread out. We could've stayed 2 weeks and had plenty of space to spread out. And oh how I wish we had! Highlights: gorgeous views of sloping vineyards, simple yet perfect dinner overlooking said vineyards, the pool area, brick floors in our apartment, the warmth of the owners, meeting other travelers at dinner...
Awesome experience. So grateful we got to go and spend time here!

We recently spent 6 nights at Il Borghetto and found that it was exceptionally well placed to do both. Being situated very near San Gimignano in central Tuscany makes it easy to go see cultural landmarks in Firenze, Siena, Pisa and more. With plenty of places on the grounds and a nice pool one can also have great "down time" days filled w/views of the beautiful Tuscan hills and San Gimignano. We even spent a few days where we did both by visiting the smaller but still fascinating nearby towns and then relaxed at Il Borghetto.
As others have written the facilities are great and the when served the meals are a must. Wonderful flavors in each course that go well w/the wine pairings offered. Our daughter also enjoyed a cooking class offered one day.
While the above is reason enough to visit in the end it is the people that make Il Borghetto a must for your Tuscan visit. Nicola, Sandra, Simona, and Ricardo set the tone w/their help and friendliness that results in visitors sharing meals and stories while making friends. Evidence of this was that most visitors during our stay were repeat visitors. They came not only to enjoy Il Borghetto but to renew their friendship w/the owners and their fellow repeat visitors as well as make new friends.
Thanks Nicola, Sandra, Ricardo and Simona for a great stay.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the triple upstairs in the villa.

Everything you read about this gem of a place is true. Perfect location. Stunning views. Great hospitality. Delicious dinners. Spotless apartments. We stayed a week---It was hard to leave. For those who like to excercise, note that the pool is long enough for lap swimming and there is a fully equipped Equinox gym about ten minutes away that only costs 5 Euros per person for a week.

This was our first visit to Il Borghetto and were bowled over by the location and the accommodation. We rented an apartment with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The apartment was very clean and beautifully decorated in Tuscany style. We stayed there for 6 nights with friends and spent a good deal of our time sitting on the patio, taking in the views with a good bottle of wine or two. We found the owners extremely welcoming and friendly. On the last night we had a meal in the "caves" and regret not having more. The food was very fresh and beautifully presented. Although the apartments were all full, it was very quiet and peaceful. We will be back again as soon as the "holiday fund" allows.

Room Tip: Whichever apartment you choose will be good.

We planned to meet friends and family half way through a long tour around Europe at Il Borghetto and arrived just over a week ago. It had come highly recommended to us from a number of people who return there frequently. Put simply, if you go to Italy, especially Tuscany do yourself a favour and spend a week at Il Borghetto. It is the perfect base to either travel around and view the sites, or relax, unwind and take in those amazing views. Nonna served up the best meals(and so cheap) we have had so far in Italy complimented by fantastic local red wines that Sandra and Nicola explained to us with passion. Take a day out to join in with the traditional Tuscan cooking class as well, it won't disappoint and you get to eat the results! Having spent a month in and out of typical size hotel rooms, the large ground level room we booked was just what we needed with a separate lounge area, bedroom and even a walk in robe to finally unpack our suitcase in. The friendly and relaxed atmosphere the staff produce rubs off on all the guests, with everyone mingling and swapping travel stories and tips.
Wake up and take a relaxing stroll through the bush, sit and read by the pool or take a trip into one of the stunning towns near by. What every you want Il Borghetto has it, with a smile and usually a funny little story from Nicola.

We chose Il Borghetto because of the TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed.
My husband and I had booked a cruise that ended in Rome and wanted to relax in Tuscany after almost two weeks of daily excursions. Il Borghetto is a wonderful place to relax and a wonderful introduction to the area. We stayed only 3 days in a very nice apartment with phenomenal views of the Tuscan hills. Everyone was kind and helpful. Fortunately, they were serving dinner on the first night we were there...it was one of the best meals we had during our entire visit to Europe, Simona and Nicola explained each course and helped use find a lovely chianti to pair with our meal...and we loved the little wine room's coziness.

Although our apartment was at the bottom of the stairs and our door opened into the courtyard, and you could hear other guests...this was only in the evening as everyone was gathering either for dinner on the property or elsewhere. We slept very, very well in our room.
One other thing...we didn't have a GPS so we made our way to San Gimignano and then connected with Simona who sent her Riccardo to meet us so that we could follow them back to Il Borghetto. It wasn't far and wasn't difficult, but that level of hospitality is what we experienced throughout our stay. We loved the location, accommodations and the owners...We will Definitely Be Back.

This was our third visit to Il Borghetto. We had a wonderful week! Four couples rented two apartments. We were greeted warmly by the Bimbi family every day. Our accommodations were spotless and very comfortable. Our favorite nights were dinners at Il Borghetto ....delicious four course meals prepared and served by Mama, the family and helpers. The surrounding area is landscape on steroids. I simply cannot get enough! San Gimignano is nearby. Many beautiful Tuscan hill towns are day trips.
Ps. Two couples did the cooking class offered at Il Borghetto and LOVED it. I'll be sure to sign up next time!

Room Tip: Sandra will help you with photos and descriptions of the available apartments.
