We spend 2 days at the Villa and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff is so attentive, the food is great, the view is breathtaking. We did the cooking class and had lot of fun and learned a lot. We are counting the days until we can go back.

This was the perfect place to stay to enjoy the heart of Chianti. The staff was very welcoming and very helpful when we had questions about the area. The rooms were beautiful and very clean and comfortable. The location was up a hill and onto a dirt road but once acquainted with the area it was easy to maneuver and scenery was beautiful. We took an afternoon cooking class with the owner David and had the best time learning various techniques including making fresh pasta-- lots of fun. They also served the best breakfast that we had in Italy and France! Dinner was delicious too!

It was a perfect place to stay while celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary!

My wife and I wanted to visit tuscany for a few days over easter with our 6 month old daughter, the first trip the three of us had made together. What we wanted: small hotel in a beautiful setting; relaxing atmosphere; good food; lots of day trips possible. What we got: all of the above PLUS the friendliest, most helpful welcome and service throughout the time we were there. I really cannot praise villa bordoni enough, they were incredibly helpful with our baby and it really does feel like you are staying in a family home but with the privacy and quality you expect from a boutique hotel. The restaurant is excellent and having spent the previous two night holed up in an average hotel in Florence it was great to be able to enjoy fine dining in a relaxed environment and not having to worry about babysitting for our daughter.

Thanks guys we had a great time! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

We spent three glorious nights at Villa Bordoni. Hospitality and service were excellent. Luxurious accommodations. Fantastic breakfasts outdoors. Dinner in the dining room was excellent. Only very minor complaint is that the menu is somewhat limited. Overall it was an amazing stay and we would return in a heartbeat!

A beautiful location in the heart of Tuscany. Definitely a great place for a romantic or rustic getaway. Lovely gardens and pool (it was too cool for that when we were there). The staff were friendly and helpful. Others have spoken of its charm and also that it can be a bit tricky to get there. The key is to follow the instructions from their website rather than your GPS, as that will give you the correct way to get there from Greve in Chianti. Also, I recommend you make reservations at the (excellent) restaurant so you won't have to go out on the narrow, unlit roads (and also so that you'll be able to enjoy the local wine with your dinner and still drive). You'll find that this is a hidden secret well worth the journey. Now, on to the restaurant review...

Room Tip: The family room has two bedrooms with a spacious living room with TV and books, so you could easily...

We stayed at Villa Bordoni for 4 nights and it was awesome!!! The room was well furnished, clean, comfortable and had a gorgeous view. The pool area is beautiful and very tranquil. All the food was excellent - outdoor eating area is great. We did a cooking class with Chef Collin which was so much fun and dinner was delicious! Highly recommend the cooking class.The staff were extremely attentive and helpful. The service was amazing - very first class! Ricardo and Farida were wonderful!!! This Villa may have a dirt road leading to it but it is without question a Luxury Villa!!! I totally recommend it!

Room Tip: We stayed in Montefili room - beautiful!

We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip to Italy. We had a little difficulty finding it at first because our GPS stopped working once we drove off the main roads. We accidentally drove onto the wrong dirt road and got lost but after re-tracing our steps to the main road we were able to follow signs to the villa.

We decided to try their restaurant the first night we were there since we had read raving reviews. I notified them that I was vegan ahead of time and confirmed that they would be able to accommodate my diet. Our waiter was really friendly and attentive. The chef personally came to chat with me before we ordered to ensure that I would have a wonderful vegan meal - which I did! (see our photos!) This meal proved to be one of the best from our entire 2-week long trip and I could not have asked for more! We ate there again on our third night which proved to be just as wonderful.

We stayed in the San Cresci room. It had a beautiful view and even a small second level loft with a daybed. Our room also had a 3d tv and bluray player which enabled us to stay up-to-date on Game of Thrones!

The grounds are lovely and we enjoyed doing yoga outside with the gorgeous views. Unfortunately it was too cold out to swim while we were there, but the pool area was very nice.

There are many wineries within a short driving distance. One day, we drove out to Castello di Brolio which was definitely worth the drive for the beautiful scenery along the way and the fun of visiting a real life castle.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much!

Room Tip: upper floors have more of a view of the countryside
