We stayed here in an apartment for 6 nights during the end of June/begining of July. Borgo Grondaie was beautifully landscaped and the apartment was very large and very clean. The pool is similar to an infinity pool, it was very clean and refreshing. Even though the hotel was booked to capacity because of the Palio it definitly did not feel crowded. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful (especially Eleanor and Guya). The hotel is located outside of Siena so it is probably about a 20 minute walk into town (mostly uphill). We walked it most days but a few times we had the front desk call for a taxi which they are more than happy to assist with and it only costs about 10 euros. It was very nice being outside of the town because we were able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Palio and just relax. Also it is surprisingly quite here considering that the train station is not far away. Siena is a great location also to use as a base to check out other towns nearby, we went to San Gimignano and we also went on a great chianti wine tour that took us to 2 other small towns (Castellini in Chianti and the other town I can't remember) and 2 great small wineries. We set up the wine tour through the hotel. Once again I can't say what a great time we had at Borgo Grondaie.
