The Ferragamo family deserves credit for rescuing and rebuilding a medieval town and working to establish a winery and eco reserve. The excellent restaurants Osteria del Borro and Tuscan Bistro saved the property from a Terrible rating. The food and service were superb and personalized. The advertising is misleading. The most beautiful parts of the property are served for the... More

Having explored the village which in itself is very interesting including the Pinocchio feature & cheese shop, the small restaurant at the spa is a gem a limited menu but very well presented, excellent quality and good value for money. Friendly staff time to relax and enjoy the scenery.

I first came across this resort years ago in departures magazine when the Ferragamo family first opened it up. When we decided to visit the region I made sure we stayed for a few days. Il Boro was a great treat. Having not fully developed a plan for activities until we arrived, the concierge was able to help us secure... More

I found Il Borro on Relais & Chateau website during the research for our family's Tuscan trip. I was so intrigued that I immediately decided to book a stay there, even it meant that we had to take a bit of detour in between our two other travelling locations. It later proved to be not only totally worth-while, but we... More

We based ourselves at the spectacular Il Borro resort which includes a medieval village, farmhouses and many amenities (spa, winery, horse-back riding, truffle-hunting, and so much more). We enjoyed the tour of the winery which included an excellent movie that introduced us to Il Borro, its'... More

Il borro had been a dream of mine for several years, and I was finally able to realize that dream this October.

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
