Villa il Borghetto
Ranked #3 of 94 Speciality Lodging in Siena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Our family stayed at the Villa II Borghetto in one of the charming 2 bedroom suites. The suite was large and immaculately clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. Our suite on the street side had a spectacular view overlooking the mountain side of hills and valleys, although the view was worth every moment it does getting noisy with the traffic at nighttime. Cristina and Claudio were the perfect hosts and so kind with assisting us with anything we needed and their mother and father were so wonderful too! We really enjoyed our 4 night here and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an apartment in Siena. The bus stop is right outside the front door and only a quick 5 min ride into the heart of Siena. We loved Siena and the people who worked and live there.

Room Tip: choose a room with a view as long as the traffic noise is not a concern.

This family run establishment located 10 mins by bus from the old town was a delightful experience. Nothing was too much trouble for Christina or Claudo who were more than willing to go that 'extra bit' to help us.
Our 2 room apartment was well equiped with a kitchenette/ dining /living area with all mod cons, including some cooking products.eg coffee, tea, oil, vinegar, bottled water, dishwasher detergent etc. After 3 weeks of travelling, the best part however was the clothes washer & dryer, with detergent also supplied. For self caterers there are 2 large supermarkets just down the road, but you must go by car as there are no footpaths. The bus into the centre of Siena stops just outside the door and runs every 15 mins. On arrival we were given a bus ticket each to get us into the town but you can purchase one on the bus if needed. Off road parking is available.
Would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back.

We stayed with Cristina and Claudio for a couple of evenings in early May. They were such engaging and helpful hosts that it practically wouldn't have mattered how nicely appointed their guest apartments were, but the rooms were immaculate and so clean it was unbelievable. We stayed in the Il Palio apartment, which had two bedrooms, a well-furnished kitchen, and had a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside. The location was just outside of the city proper, which was perfect and peaceful and not a drawback whatsoever -- at any given time, our hosts were able to conjure up a taxi within about 5-minutes. I would encourage anyone to stay there; I certainly will come back. If you are lucky, you may get to see Baby Nicolo, the most beautiful sight of all!

Room Tip: Il Palio had two bedrooms and was extremely comfortable.

We're so happy that we chose this Villa. All the positive reviews are true. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, that was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Although we didn't prepare any meals here, the kitchen was fully equipped if you chose to do so. Christina and Claudio were very helpful with information about the area and suggested two restaurants in Siena that were excellent. Our apartment was very quiet, and had all the comforts of home.We never heard any noise from other guests. Would stay here again, or recommend it to friends.

We are family with young children ,stayed in one bedroom apartment. The room was spacious and spotless (best ever stay in my italy trip) . Fully furnished with all facilities, nice terrace for our dinner.The hotel located just outbound from old town siena, you can drive at night just 5 minutes or take a bus (the bus stop just in front of the hotel and you can by bus ticket from the hotel) at daytime to avoid parking fee for many hours spending in old town. I recommend you stay this hotel as base in traveling along tuscany. Really love this accomodation. Thanks the owner for the wonderful stay.

This idyllic countryside retreat is not only conveniently located near Siena within walking distance; it is also very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and large bathroom. Every window opens out to views of beautiful Tuscan hills and trees, and the shower is powerful and warm.
