Reviewed 22 September 2013

My husband and I joined with friends for an amazingly memorable week in Tuscany. We were fortunate enough to book this fantastic hotel. The beautiful location, the wonderful staff, the great food and the perfectly fitted out rooms with brilliantly high ceilings, made for the optimal setting for our Tuscany vacation. It was an ideal location to position ourselves in, both for day tripping to the many sights and scenery that Tuscany has to offer, as well as a lovely restaurant to unwind the day with an Aperol at sundown and delicious meal at the in house restaurant.

We were so pleased with everything at this lovely villa. From our comfortable base we made wonderful day trips throughout Tuscany and each evening had the choice of cooking something at home, eating out at one of Jacopo's great recommendations or dining at the delicious in-house restaurant. A delightful setting and beautiful rooms, made perfect by the friendly staff. Thank you Jacopo, Lucia and Azzurra. Our third villa in Tuscany and by far the best.

We would like to thank Jacopo and Alessia for such a wonderful stay in their accommodation in Tuscany. The villa was the base for our travels around Tuscany and onwards to Rome. The rooms were clean and offered great flexibility for self catered accommodation, yet we still had the benefit of fine dining in the restaurant below. The staff were very friendly and always helpful and the food / wine was exceptional. We look forward to going back in the future.

To celebrate our 35th anniversary, most of our extended family joined us for a week in Tuscany. I needed to book a place that could handle any number from 5 to 13 people. This restored convent near Poggibonsi turned out to be perfect. We rented the Rosa Bianca apartment, which has four full bedrooms and a small one off the kitchen. That turned out to be one of the best features (the kitchen, not the bedroom!), with a huge farm table where the 8 of us had breakfast and a few dinners.

I'll review the fabulous restaurant (Casa Bandini) separately, but we liked it so much we cancelled previously researched and made-in-advance reservations elsewhere to eat there, several times.

Others have mentioned the views, and they really are stunning. The website has great pictures, but they don't do the reality justice! We took as many pictures of the borgo as we did of any other destination.

The location is terrific, close to the big Co-op supermarket, banks, pharmacy, and train station in Poggibonsi, but only a few minutes from the hill towns of Colle di Val d'Elsa and San Gimignano. We rented a 9 passenger van, and explored pretty far afield until the driver got the flu. Then we took to the rails from the convenient station in Poggibonsi.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms, but some are larger than others and have more amenities (kitchen facilities...

This was my 6th visit to Antico Borgo San Lorenzo and as always we had a fantastic stay. Alessia and Jacopo made us feel very welcome. The apartments are 'typical' Tuscan villas in a really quite and picturesque location with stunning views, but still close to Poggibonsi and within easy reach of Siena. The restaurant is a must and the fresh home cooked food is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble and it is a great place to stay. I would higly recomend and look forward to next time.

I was here for 5 days, everithyng was great..i recommend you to rent a Vespa motorbike and travel around all Tuscany..spectacular view and really good wine! So lets go to antico borgo san lorenzo. ;) The staff was friendly and very helpfull. Only pool was old a bit. Tuscany is a little expansive but you have to stay there about once..

All round excellent accomodation, setting, location and in particular Jacopo and Alessia who made our stay perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone particularly if you are after that unique style and feel of Tuscany, great location for Florence and Siena.
