“Food Heaven”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

One week spent in the hotel - of a 2 weeks break in Tuscany.

Lovely hotel with a variety of pretty, rustic buildings - in a delightful setting.

The food was excellent - and there was also a great choice of Tuscan wines. This was a particular highlight for me, and eating wonderful food outside on a warm Tuscan evening is unbeatable! There was a fixed menu, but on certain nights they would introduce special local dishes. Scrummy!

The staff were fantastic. They were some of the best hotel staff and waitresses we have ever encountered - so friendly and so accommodating.

The accommodation was good. Everything you needed, but the bedrooms were too dark for me. I understand the need to keep the rooms cool, but the natural and electrical light was insufficient in the bedroom. No big deal really. If you need to use the kitchen, then take all the food and drink you might need, as there are only some teabags when you arrive, and nothing else. Conad in Borgo is a good shop.

The pools were great and I used the gym. Was a bit surprised that we would have to pay for the Jacuzzi etc. But the gym/spa area is quite small. One rainy day, we all had a massage, and that was really good!

We did some mountain biking and walking in the area, which was really good, and the scenery as you ascend the hills just gets better and better. For serious stuff, you definitely need a good map, as many roads come to a dead end, or you end up on somebody's drive! It's a lovely area of farms, forests and hills.

The nearest town, Borgo San Lorenzo, was a bit disappointing, although we found a nice restaurant there. The tax free shopping in Barberino was excellent. Florence is a 30 minute train ride away.

Really recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this little piece of heaven for 5 nights. We arrived 1 night early and we are so glad we did. It was our first time to Tuscany and it will not be our last. Monsignor Della Casa has everything to offer for a relaxing holiday. The views are fabulous, the food was excellent, and the staff were delightful, nothing was a problem. Our waitress Simone was such a cutie with a wonderful warm smile on her face always... We were there for motor racing and I just had to have 1 day on my own at this fantastic place for some " me " time. I had 2 massages which were excellent the only problem...I had to go back to the rack track the next day! Good shopping outlets not too far away which are worth a visit. This is for sure one hotel that we will book again. 10/10 nothing at all to complain about at all

Room Tip: I believe they are all good

We stayed here near the end of September 2013 our 20th wedding anniversary. From the moment we got there we were treated fantastic. If you are trying to decide, look no further. The rooms, the spa, the restaurant and the staff all awesome. If you don't stay here it's your own fault for missing out. We were all over Italy and saw a lot of places so if you can even just for a few nights do it.

We spend 3 days in this resort in october 2013. We were looking for quite, spa and good location in Tuscany: Monsignore della Casa is exactly what we were looking for! Along the way to come to the resort you can see the wonderful panorama and the famous tuscany landscape. We book the superior room over the restaurant, really nice furnished, clean and comfortable. The Spa and the treatment were good, we did not use the pools (too cold) but the garden looks perfect for spend a couple of our close to the pools. We booked a cook classes with Patrizia: what a wonderful idea! I recommend this resort for romantic escape and family.

Room Tip: Wherever you are is quite

I visited this place together with my parents and my brother's family - five adults and two children. Our flat (Fattori) had everything you need as a big family - even three luxurious bathrooms.

The view from the resort is best described as scenic, and in the changing weather of October it changes over and over again to reveal yet another beautiful detail of rhe mountain or surrounding areas.

The staff are very welcoming and helpful and you get the impression that they know exactly what you need. My four year old niece even made friends with the gardener who gave her a rose and some other flower when she came to see what he wad doing.

Our second stay at this lovely hotel. We stayed in corniolo 2 and we were very happy with it, it had a nice little outside terrace with lots of shade. Apartment was well equipped, spotless and cosy the only negative thing was that we could hear the children running around and shouting on either side so perhaps if you enjoy your quiet choose one that only has one apt adjoining. The meals are of a very high standard in the restaurant and the most beautiful setting outside, candle lit and very efficient, a bit more variety would have been appreciated as my unadventurous teenager who found it a bit limiting.

The staff here are very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. So nice after our 5 days in Venice.

We enjoyed the pizza at la Griglia in Borgo San Lorenzo. My husband had a day out at the mugello race course 10 minutes away. The designer outlet is a nice change.

I would definitely visit this hotel again and recommend it to all my friends.

Nice place and yes very much in family style, close to Florence, good restaurant included, been there for 2 times now with family.

Only improvement for future will be the inside of the swimmingpool(s), if that is done I will go back once more!

Room Tip: For me all are good enough.
