“A great place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

The Borgo Della Speranza was a wonderful place. Although the location is a little outside the town of Volterra and there is a stretch of dirt road to get there, it was very nice to relax after a day of visiting the area. And our GPS found it without a problem. The view from the outdoor terrace area is truly beautiful. The Borgo Della Speranza is run by volunteers who were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. As we were in the Volterra area in early May, we were the only ones staying at the villa. Our apartment was lovely, very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need. Even though we had booked a suite with a kitchen, we decided to eat at the restaurant which turned out to be a great idea since the food was wonderful. All very fresh, local and organic ingredients. Midway between Volterra and San Gimignano, this was a great place to stay to tour the area or just kick back and relax. If we ever get back to the region, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

If you are travelling or staying in this area you will be delighted with the location, the accommodation, the food and particularly the exceptional service from the staff. Several of our relatives and friends were booked in for our daughters wedding and all had high praise for everything. In particular they looked after my father in law, in his late 80's, with great care and kindness. The fact that everyone had such a good experience added to the already perfect wedding week.

We came here for a wedding in Villa Ulignano in August. Our stay was booked by Richard , the groom, and we had no idea that we were staying in such a beautiful place. We would have stayed longer if we had known. The hosts were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for them, no matter what time of the day it was. They made everyone feel well cared for and special. We would go back in a flash. The food was delicious and very freshly cooked. Everything was so lovely. Thank you to the four of you.

We attended a wedding in August and had our accommodation booked for us by the groom.
What a wonderful surprise we had when we arrived. The rooms are newly decorated, clean and spacious and the overall accommodation is very good. What makes this place really special are the hosts. They are so very very welcoming and genuine. They cannot do enough for you, are always pleasant and immediately make you feel special. The fresh organic food is of a plenty and is beautifully prepared and served. We would certainly recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting a peaceful few days - the silence is deafening.
A few points to note are that firstly the Borgo is accessed by a 2.5km narrow rugged road but is quite manageable if driven carefully, well worth the drive when you see the views.

Room Tip: Room prices include breakfast, apartments don't, but well worth purchasing when there as they ar...

We were staying at Villa di Ulignano right next door (literally a 45 second walk away) for my sister's wedding. What was upsetting about the experience with Borgo della Speranza was that my wife and I found this amazing place for a meal on our last day there. I would have been going here at least once a day to have a meal had I known of it from the start. They were so friendly and amazing. The views and ambiance were breath taking and gorgeous. It was an absolute pleasure to just lounge around the table and enjoy the afternoon. We spent a good amount of my time in Italy drinking wine and eating food, I can say with certainty that this hands down was one of the best places to eat. Serving all organic ingredients made for a meal that was so fresh and delicious. My wife due to allergy restrictions eats a vegan diet, they were very understanding and willing and able to cater to our special needs. Even if you are not staying right at or right next to Borgo della Speranza I would say it is well worth the drive out to enjoy this hidden gem. If my wife and I are ever back in Tuscany we will be making it back for seconds and a place to stay for sure.
