We returned last week to Il Borro after a wonderful stay in June, 2015. It was the highlight of our trip last year and so had very high expectations on our return. What a let down it was. Room: We stayed in Malagnino, as we did last year. The room was as it was then, very comfortable, though WiFi reception...

Amazing hotel in the middle of an old town. The town is all owned by the hotel. They have hoseback riding, pool, restaurants, and wine tastings. The pool is one of those views that your jaw drops. The hotel room was an entire house. Really really spectacular. Great spa.

My husband and I wanted to do Tuscany for 10 days. We were looking for a luxury hotel that had either separate villas/apartments, but also have the facilities and amenities of a hotel which had restaurant, bar, spa and activities. We also needed a place that was dog friendly, but didn't have a high daily pet fee since we were...

We visited as part of a special birthday treat organised by the missus and were completely blown away. Imagine a small historic village that has been meticulously converted house by house into a fabulous resort with hidden and sensitively designed amenities (a secret infinity pool hidden 200 steps from the old Church, anyone?) where every room is unique and the...

This review is long overdue. However, it's never too late to say that Il Borro is one of the most beautiful and enchanting destinations I have ever seen. Set in the Tuscan country side, every where you look is beauty and luxury. The Deluxe Suite (Cipriani) we stayed in was perfectly appointed and felt like a home away from home....

When 160+ guests arrived at this remote Medieval village in the remote Tuscan country side, from 10 countries, for a wedding of two special friends, this venue exceeded our wildest dreams. Our two bedroom, modern, fully equipped apartment was the perfect base for our babysitting grandparents during the fours days of the wedding celebrations. Each day we discovered a new...

What a wonderful setting and a real priviledge to stay in such a specia place. Be sure to book your place in the gourmet restaurant before you arrive though, or you may be disappointed not to get a table. The dining terrace is fabulous and the view over the village is stunning as the light changes from dusk to darkness....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Telling its stories, a place becomes part of those stories. The legend takes on a life beyond the place and becomes timeless.The origins of the village of Il Borro are lost in the history of medieval Tuscany and the famous people who established the reputation of the region. Every alley, every stone speaks of a time that once was, of flavours and scents that recall the memory of a rare and more authentic Tuscany.Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, in the shadow of the cypress trees of the ancient Via dei Sette Ponti, (an area rich in art and culture between the three main cities of Tuscany Florence, Arezzo and Siena), Il Borro is an open window on history, a fresco to a far away world. The Medici dynasty, the Savoia family and now the Ferragamo family have safeguarded and preserved this precious oasis, making this place, suspended between past and present, a sanctuary dedicated to wellbeing and the art of hospitality. You are welcome - one thousand years of history are waiting for you! ... more   less
