I will be honest: I saw Borgo Scopeto Relais in the movie "Letters to Juliet" and decided I had to come. I was nervous given the lack of glowing reviews here on Trip Advisor-but have no doubt, Borgo Scopeto is a glorious Tuscan getaway.
The grounds are meticulously kept, the rooms well appointed and the staff friendly in the traditionally warm Italian way. It's true you would likely want a car if you were to stay here for more than a day or two. Siena is about a 20 minute drive, and there is plenty to see nearby that you will want wheels for. I did not hire a car and still had a wonderful time.
This would be a wonderful place for a family trip, wedding, retreat, or girls getaway. I didn't have the chance to enjoy the spa or tennis courts but they look wonderful. Both pools are also beautiful. And the food is spectacular.
There are some quirks to be aware of--this is a centuries old structure, after all. The toilet makes loud noises. It's quite cool in the evening and the beds are traditionally European in firmness.
There are also beautiful places to sit, bikes to borrow and lots of great estate olive oil and wine to enjoy. Plus free wifi in the common areas.
In short, the bad reviews can be ignored!
