Il Borghetto Andrea Tafi
Reviewed 8 August 2013

We had an incredible week at Il Borghetto.
We were warmly welcomed by Gloria and Andrea . They were so friendly and helpfull - and made us feel very welcome. And especially our baby boy Alfred had the best time and we spend many hours by the pool.

Everything at Il Borghetto is neat and well maintained. The appartment was nicely decorated and clean.

The area is perfect for cycling and the cities Pistoia and Montecatini is near by.

We had a wonderful stay at Il Borghetto and were sad to leave - but we will definitely be back.

Greetings to Gloria and Andrea from Mikkel, Lene and Alfred

Second time we spend our holiday with Gloria and Andrea. Again we planned our stay already for next year. The place is so peaceful and beautiful, the service is excellent and of course as a cycler you have so many nice opportunities. Once a week there is an organised ride together with Andrea and an organised dinner presented/cooked by Gloria and Andrea. They put so much energy in what they do, the organisation, furnishing of the apartments, garden, swimming pool,....everything is constructed to feel home. Charming hospitality right from the heart.

We had an incredible experience staying at the Borghetto ....we were greeted warmly by both Andrea and his wife Gloria. Excellent hosts, friendly, warm, helpful and very welcoming...we were in the Paris-Roubaix apt which was very spacious, clean, and comfortable and gorgeous ....they gave us great recommendations for dinner and Andrea made reservations for us both nights at two excellent restaurants..Il Marzocco (gorgeous view from Larciano) and Il Vino Veritas (ristorante pizzeria in town) .....highly recommend both places for dinner...we rented fabulous Canyon bikes, which Andrea fitted for us perfectly...in fact, he took us out on a fabulous 50km ride around the area, showing us his home town and the rolling hills around the area ...we were thrilled to be riding with him ...such a treat! we loved the apt, the grounds are beautiful, gorgeous pool area, and the surrounding olive trees make a stunning backdrop to the beautiful residence of 6 apartments. We will definitely go back someday. Being in the country, it was quiet and peaceful, a truly fabulous place to stay!

Good points:
-very nice place in North of tuscany,nera Vinci and Pistoia
- nice houses with swimming pool, very quiet
-wonderful hosts: Andrea and Gloria (super breakfast at Borghetto and suggestions for dinner)
-good bicycles for rent (canyon , price : about 2000 Euro /, new) and good support
-nice possibilities to do cycling trips in the mountains (in north tuscany)

Suggestions:
-GPS with adapted cycling trips (for rent)
Also somewhat far from the centre of tuscany (san giminignano, siena, ), cycling trips therefore sometimes difficult due to traffic .

Wonderful place run with genuine Italian hospitality and charm by Gloria and Andrea. Nothing is too much. A real plus are the racing bikes that one can rent, state of the art Canyon bikes fitted to your needs by Andrea. This is a paradise for anyone who's looking for a cycling holiday in Italy. The fully-equiped apartments (not just rooms) are very comfortable and clean, there's also a perfect swimming pool, all of that in a peaceful environment tucked away between the hills and olive trees. The Borghetto is located about one hour away from Pisa, Lucca and Firenze, which makes it a good place for your excursions into Tuscany. Dolce far niente at its best! Wim, Belgium

Our first trip to the Borghetto was in August 2011 where we enjoyed fantastic Hollidays. Very nice, clean and comfortable appartment ! Very quiet environment and nice clean swimming pool. Lamporecchio is near city' s like Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, Montalcino, ... even a nice trip in the Chianti region is not that far. Nearby you find the COOP to do your own grosseries and a lot of authentic fattorias and restaurants !!! Even the bars for the espresso and "pastina" are fabulous.

Of course cycling is always in the neighborhood with fantasctic Canyon bikes and amazing routes in the Tuscan Hills... if you want you can compete against Andrea :):)

The warm welcome from Andrea and Gloria is truly and no question is too much !!!!

So, when we need a break we just book a flight to Pisa and go to the Borghetto. Meanwhile we did it 3 times... and 1 time only for cycling training .... And now the countdown started to the 4th of August !!!!

We got an excellent 2 weeks stay in the Borghetto di Andrea Tafi in August 2011.
The service by Gloria and Andrea was perfect, they really take care of their guests.
The room/apartment, we stayed in Paris-Roubaix, was very clean and a comfortable room.
The property is very quit with an amazing swimming pool.
We really enjoyed our cycling trips around the area.
Andrea took us also for a cycling trip, this was a nice experience to ride with one of the most famous cyclists of the last 20 years.
Gloria and Andrea surprised us in the evening with a real Italian barbecue.
Cities as Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, Florence are very close to Lamporecchio.
We booked immediately for 2012 during our stay in August 2011.
We really love this place.
