My husband and I stayed at Il Borgo de Vescine for four nights in a suite. The location is beautiful - just past Radda in Chianti surrounded by vineyards. The suite was huge. It had large bedroom, two bathrooms, and a separate living room, and it was very cozy and romantic. The staff is very kind, friendly and helpful, though I did feel like they wanted us to eat at the hotel's restaurant and, therefore, were reluctant to give restaurant recommendations or aid with reservations. This is the main drawback of the hotel. The restaurant is simply not good. This is extremely unfortunate because the setting is beautiful, and it would be very convenient to eat there often, especially since we were not crazy about the idea of driving through Tuscany at night after having had dinner and some wine. Instead, however, we ate at the restaurant on our first night and never again. The food is very bland, and the price is rather high given the poor quality of the food. If the restaurant was better, this hotel would be fantastic; as it is, this is lovely place to stay with one major drawback. As a final note, be sure to do a tasting with Vicenzo (they'll even ship the wines back for you) as the wines are quite lovely.
