Reviewed 5 October 2011

This property was great. Large and spacious and well suited to day trips all around.

The restaurant next door is excellent.

The only thing we could have wanted was an oven for cooking and the charcoal BBQ is a challange.

Pablito the manager was fabulous .

Dear Niel,

it is with great pleasure that we have just read your review. Thank you especially for spending some of your time to share with us, and other travelllers as well, your opinion.

We are glad that you liked especially our geographical position (in the middle of Tuscany), and also the spaciousness of our place. We take great care of our two houses, so we always hope that our guests can feel like home, with something more: that is to say, a Tuscan feeling everywhere around them. We are also very fond of our pool and garden, which we think have always to look as nice as possible. Thank you also for your nice words about the restaurant and management.

We hope, nevertheless, that we will improve more and more. For the moment, thanks for sending us your nice opinion, this is very much appreciated.

Best regards, hoping to see you soon again.

We liked:
- Free wifi. Free parking.
- The bread for the morning was brought to our door every day (if ordered).
- Location: the highway between Siena and Firenze was easy to reach.
- Clean apartment (4 on a scale to 5). Well equipped.
- Clean pool with enough sunbeds.
- Nice and friendly service/staff. Good at english!
- The price was fair.

Could be better:
- The road could be more signed, there is no Borgo Al Cerro sign on the road towards to Casole d'Elsa. Our navigation tried to get us through Casole d'Elsa. It was not possible.
- The matresses in the bedroom were extremely hard (italian standard?)!
- The access to private teracces/gardens was nice, but it was a bit public. We did not use it.
- The fitness area (which is mentioned on the website) was in a very low standard. Kids used it as toys. Useless for an adult man. The equipment should (when mentioned) have been better and should have been unavailable to kids.

- An idea: make it possible in the reception to buy icecream.
- A map to the local supermarket (coop in colle di val d'elsa) would have been nice.

We would like to stay here a again. And we can recommend the place.

This was our 6th year in Tuscany and the 5th time we have stayed at Borgo al Cerro. The accommodation is of a very high standard and set in its own grounds just outside of the lovely hill top town of Casole D'Elsa. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly and only to pleased to provide additional details of the surrounding area. If you are going to stay in Tuscany and want a top quality hotel in a beautiful spot then I would give this a try - you will not be disappointed. This year the restaurant next door re-opened and we found it to be of the highest quality with great service and beautful food.

We stayed here during a recent family vacation. The place is absolutely stunning. The setting is nice and calm and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Pablito the manager helped us tremendously giving us tips on restaurants (he was bang on on his recommendations) as well as helping us with any extra things that we needed during our stay of 6 days/nights. Ristorante Il Colobaio has great Tuscan food with friendly staff and the local gelato place in Casole was great too.
The pool is certainly an added benefit as my almost 5 year old son enjoyed playing in the water. The apartments are nice and clean and well stocked with utensils and other things that might be needed.
Overall a tremendous experience. My wife and I always do a little quiz about whether we would visit a city again or stay at a place again or go to a restaurant again. For this one we would absolutely like to come here again!!
Ciao

We had a lovely time. The apartments were clean and extremely family-friendly. The crib was already in place for our arrival and the grounds were fantastic for our 7 year old soccer player and his 18 month old brother. They made friends immediately with other neighboring families. Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra are all within 30 minutes and Florence was around 1 hour away. My husband wants to come back for his 40th birthday. The only advice I would recommend to the hotel would be to include a little olive oil/salt complimentary because they are not something you would buy in bulk for 5 days. Also, the manager was always accomodating giving us dishwashing detergent and trash bags. The place was beautiful and peaceful. What a pleasure!
