“Beautiful Tuscany”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Have just returned from a 2 night short break with 4 other couples to celebrate the wedding of one couple. We had a brilliant time and the whole trip was idylic.
The flight from Bristol to Piza is very easy and picking up a rental car was easy.
Borgo di Colleoli was about 40 minutes away by car through beautiful poppy fields, and the directions we were given by reception were easy to follow.
Once you arrive ar reception you see the Main House through the gate along a tree lined gravel drive. Beautiful.
The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. There are no cars allowed on site so you unload your bags onto golf buggies and a man takes you and your luggage to your room and ever carries it upstairs if there are any.
The rooms are all different and ours was 1 bed but 2 bathrooms. It was quite plain but charming. The beds are very big with lovely fluffy duvets and plenty of pillows. The bathrooms were very well done. Just remember that H and C are reversed in Italy. All our rooms were different but all just as nice. I read a review which said the kitchen area was small and I would have to agree. Not really enough preparation space for anything more than cheese and crackers or a salad.
The first night we ate at I Tigli, the pizza restaurant just outside the gate which had superb pizzas and was very reasonably priced. 10 people, 3 courses and lots of Grand Beers for €220 euros which was excellent.
We spent a fabulous day by the main pool which had plenty of sun beds. The water was cold when you first got in but you soon got used to it. There is no pool bar so it's quite a walk to the bar. Again rounds of drinks were very reasonably priced.
Saturday night the gentleman on reception arranged to us to eat at agruturismo Colleoli. It's a walk of no more than 10 minutes along a very pretty country lane where there is very little traffic that you can hear coming so is very safe even with children. The restaurant was excellent but a little more expensive. Still good value for what we had though.
All together we were delighted with the whole experience, it was a perfect way to spend a short break in Tuscany.

Gorgeous location, quite remote, the GPS went blank as we approached (it’s around an hour away from Pisa airport or 100euro in a taxi). We were staying there for a wedding and our party had generally booked the place out which was excellent for us. The staff were brilliant even though they had little English and we had less Italian. However our Italian bride’s friend did stay with us foreigners all week for any tricky translations which was a great idea.
The rooms were lovely but have no A/C and only some have fans. There is mozzy nets on the windows so it was ok to leave the window open all night and I know they had at least one travel cot available. The swimming pool was lovely as were the grounds. The food was nice but Tuscan breakfasts are not especially worth getting up for. Apparently food and drink is a little dearer here than in the village but it was certainly not exorbitant.
We had a few late night sessions and the staff would leave us to it no problem (in the covered outdoor eating area) and clear up in the morning.
The wedding reception was brilliant, antipasto served by the pool followed by many courses in the covered outdoor eating area and completed with espressos which was really impressive for decent coffee lovers and the chefs and wait staff even did the conga for us. The fantastic bar staff stayed on till 8am (although I think this was pre arranged) including even serving us in the pool.
Fyi if wifi & mobile phone reception matter to you it was very patchy.
Great place to get away from it all (or for a wedding). Book by email as they have limited English on the phone and they prefer email. Also if you are not in a big party check there is not one pre booked as Tuscan weddings are very popular with non Italians (read rowdy Paddies).
Also as well as the main hotel there are a few more accommodations available on the site including a private villa and poolWould recommend for couples, groups and families – there is even a kids play area and lots of ponies and chickens to look at and did I mention the scenery…

Room Tip: Book by email as they have limited English on the phone and they prefer email.
