Great residence with beautiful garden. Large appartments with good equipment and comfortable beds. We had a great stay and hope to come back to see Tuscany in another season.
Fam. Taljat, October 2014
Very nice place. We will recommend it to our friends. Nice surroundings and country. We only miss restaurants opened in the afternoon.
Fam. Marzullo, September 2014
è stupendo, noi ci siamo stati solo di passaggio, ma dobbiamo assolutamente ritornare!
B.J. vanBolhuis, August 2014
please keep it this way. It is a nice place to stay during the holidays. Thank you very much for your hospitality.

Anonymous, August 2014
it was an excellent stay for adults and children. In the bathroom it would be practical to have a dryer for the towels. Thank you
fam. Den Bieman, July 2014
great place to stay. Very kind staff,very helpful. We enjoyed very much and will recommend this place to our family and friends. Excellent wifi (important). Small suggestion is a garden light and longdrink glasses

We had two beautiful weeks in Borgo al Cerro and we hope that we may coming again.
Très bon sejour en famille dans un endroit calme au chant des oiseaux le matin et très bon jardin.
Fam. Noirot, France, maggio 2013
Abbiamo passato una magnifica settimana. Grazie mille. Al ritorno!
Anon., may 2013
It was a shame the playground was not in use. We appreciate the booking of the massage which was very good and advice on wine tasting. Thank you.
Michaela W., Mai 2013
Rundum eine sehr schöne Anlage zum wohlfühlen. Das Dorf in 15 Min. zu Fuß erreichbar, das ist sehr praktisch (und wurde von uns täglich genossen...).
Adriano Re e Sonia Baudino, aprile 2013
E' sempre bello poter tornare in un ambiente così confortevole e dalla natura lussureggiante ... grazie!
Anon., April 2013
Thanks, we had a great week. Enjoyed the fresh bread every morning.
Luca Massetti, Rocca Priora (RM), aprile 2013
Un luogo perfetto per riposarsi e guardare la natura.
anonimo, novembre 2012
Tutto molto bello, se capiterà torneremo. Suggeriamo di asfaltare il tratto sterrato.
Anon., november 2012
This accommodation is very good; comfortable, big. We were also here two years ago and then we decided we would come back - and we came back and we are glad. Everything is beautiful here and in fact I can't suggest you anything, because everything is here we want - almost more than that. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness.
Vernetti Roberto, Cuneo, novembre 2012
Ottimo posto, veramente incantevole! In autunno sono impagabili i colori e la quiete di questo posto. OTTIMO PER FAMIGLIE. DEGNA DI NOTA LA LAVOSTAVIGLIE!!!
Montecchio Renato, Vicenza, novembre 2012
Il servizio è stato ottimo e il soggiorno gradevole. Grazie.
Philip Hore, Canada, November 2012

Brötchenservice super, nur manchmal etwas spät...
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und glänzend erholt! Mille gracie :)
Antonio Fayos Alvarez, Espana, August 2012
All is perfect.
Anon., August 2012
A freezer near the pool (or at reception) with icecreams to buy.
Thank you for a very pleasant and confortable stay!
Fam. Marthinsen, Norway, July 2012
We had a very warm welcome from the staff and they were very helpful during our whole stay. We have been very satisfied with our whole stay on these bautiful premises. Nothing to complain about, and we have already booked for next summer.
Saelens, Belgium, June 2012
Thank you! It was great! We really spent some great moments at Borgo al Cerro with our children. Just two small remarks...not really importants. One 'nappe' (French) is not enough for one week and fitness is a bit 'old fashioned'. But everything was really OK! Thanks once again.
Roberto Littardi, SPAIN, June 2012
Ottima l'accoglienza, ottimo il posto, ci è piaciuto tanto venire qui. Posto da consigliare. Torneremo. Da migliorare nella zona piscina i giochi bambini: mancano palline da ping-pong, piuma da badmington, dardi.
Kevin Woolfe, Canada, June 2012
Beautiful grounds, enjoyed our welcome at the restaurant, great location from which to explore Tuscany, restful and relaxing.
M. Peters, June 2012
We had again a very pleasant stay. Excellent service! Beautiful surrounding.
Bruni Alessandro, Giugno 2012
Ambiente molto bello e confortevole.
Chris Pyle, UK, May 2012
A very enjoyable stay - we appreciated Pablito's help and friendly advice. Thank you.
Susy, Sara, Gino, SIlvia, Kiko, Rai, Giacomo, Aprile 2012
Il borgo è splendido.
Raimonds Bursch, Germany, March 2012
Die Anlage hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
P. George, Greece
The signs leading to your hotel are not sufficient enough as they are not easily seen at night!
Although the photos in your site are really good, the real place is much better!!!
Anon., ottobre 2011
Il posto è favoloso e accogliente. Ma il letto è un po' scomodo! Per il resto complimenti e speriamo di tornarci.
James and Diane Newell, Germany, October 2011
Pablito did an excellent job with arrangements and was very helpful. Giulia also was very positive and helpful.
Robert Svensson, Sweden, October 2011
Friendly and helpful staff! :)
Anna Maria Comito, Latina, settembre 2011
Nessun suggerimento, è perfetto!
Ian and Christina Phillips, Genova, August 2011
Cupboard to store food, badmington net, some gym equipment broken. Would certainly return + recommend to others. Staff very friendly and helpful.
PERNOUD, France, July 2011
Le couchage du salon n'est pas confortable. La climatisation serait bien appreciée.
Grand merci à Giulia pour son accueil et son aide.
Frantisek Jakub, CZ, July 2011
This is very beautiful area. We enjoyed our stay here. We have only one recommendation: to have the opportunity to get soft drinks, beer, coffee by the pool. Equipment for sport by the pool is excellent. Thanks.
Family KERR, NL, July 2011
It was, as always, wonderful to be here. Thank you all for making our stay so enjoyable. We're already looking forward to coming here again next year.
Pattiwael, NL, July 2011
Grazie mille, Giulia, Pablito, for making our stay so wonderful again! And especially for the football-area, says Luca!
Adrienne Kennard, July 2011
A lovely place, gracious, friendly and helpful staff! Wonderful place, beautiful surroundings.
Kathy Moberly, USA, July 2011
Simply a wonderful experience all around! I plan to come back.
Re Adriano, Cuneo, giugno 2011
Ottimo come sempre! Continuate così...(aggiungerei solo dei lettori DVD!!)
Oliver Jennings, UK, May 2011
Perfect place to stay - we throughly enjoyed it. Beautiful location, extremely highstandards of cleanliness! Peaceful & comfortable - heaven! Would highly recommend!
Roberto Gallardo, SPAIN, April 2011
Just say thank you again for the hospitality. We will come again!
Nieves Moreno, ESPANA, April 2011
It should be better indicated, because the GPS doesn't recognize the rue. For the rest, it's a very comfortable apartment, which makes the stay very special.
Shah, April 2011
Our stay was great except for the master bathroom that had a bad smell. Otherwise, the residence is great and the views superb. Staff was wonderful!
Hans Fischbacher, CH, october 2010
Es war ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt. Der Service Frühstück SUPER.
I.& H. Macdonald, New Zealand, ottobre 2010
Very large accommodation in beautiful surroundings. Excellent facilities.
Marco Senturz, Milano, ottobre 2010
Location oltre le aspettative. Eccellente rapporto qualità prezzo. Segnalo solo che non funziona bene lo scarico della doccia del bagno senza finestra piano superiore. Complessivamente GRAZIE!!!
Ales Sobek, Czech Republic, September 2010
We would appreciate a tray for carrying breakfast out :)
Absolutely lovely here!
SAVOIA VALENTINA, agosto 2010
Grazie di tutto.
Sibel Welch, Turkey, August 2010
You have a great place, enjoyed the every single minute. Definitely come back sometimes. It will be nice to update some of the furniture, sofa, pillows, beds. Love it all.
Annette Kruegel, Germany, August 2010
On the whole, a very beautiful location with exceptionally friendly staff. It would be helpful if there were more (maybe metal) hooks for the towels in the bathrooms. Thank you for eveything!
CINALLI MICHELE, Atessa (CH), agosto 2010
La vacanza anche se breve è stata splendida. Grazie.
Suzanne Thurling, August 2010
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as part of a group of 3 families. Lovely views. Would come again and recommend to friends. The only negative point is that although we realised the path was uphill to the village, it was too difficult underfoot to walk at night. We enjoyed using the BBQ, though sometimes had to queue til late at night. Thank you very much indeed for the holiday here.
Patricia Graham, August 2010
Excellent holiday. Could do with another barbecue!
Familie Huter, Osterreich, August 2010
Mountain bikes would need more check-ups, most of them could not be used. Anything else: PERFECT! Pool area is wonderful.
MATHIJSSEN, August 2010
As I told reception, there is a smell in the groundfloor bathroom and no internet signal in the garden in front of apt. 7. Besides this, everything is FIRST CLASS!!!
Pattiwael, NL, July 2010
Other than the fact the apt. was not very clean, the stay was once again super. Pablito and Giulia, you really create a warm and welcoming atmosphere at the Borgo. Grazie mille!
DEAR JOSE', ROY and DEAREST LITTLE LUCA,
WE APOLOGISE AGAIN FOR THE MISCOMMUNICATION WITH OUR CLEANING STAFF. WE ARE DEEPLY SORRY THAT THE APT. PROVIDED WAS NOT CLEAN TO OUR USUAL STANDARDS, THAT YOU KNOW VERY WELL, BEING PROBABLY OUR MOST AFFECTIONATE GUESTS YEAR AFTER YEAR.
Ciao amici! AND THANKS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK.
FRITSCH, July 2010
We enjoyed our stay at Borgo. One negative point: bathrooms. All the rest was perfect!!
DeSandoli, June 2010
Beautiful landscaping + gardens. A barbecue closer to the house would be helpful (one BBQ per building!??)
Anon., Canada, June 2010
Very comfortable and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay!
Famiglia FAURE, Milano, 2010
Parleremo bene ai nostri amici! Grazie mille per questo agreabile WE!
Susie Baker, UK June 2010
Really enjoyed staying here & hope to come back
Sharon Gee, AUSTRALIA June 2010
This place is fantastic - I can only hope that we will return one day! The staff were very helpful, friendly - excellent!!
*Need more washing machines
*Heated spa would be nice
De Pretto Giorgio, giugno 2010
NO COMMENTI NEGATIVI
Patrice and Ulrike
Un ensemble (personnel, appartement, jardin et piscine) très acueillant, le service très performant et toujours à l'écoute des clients. Continue comme ça, c'est parfait :-)
Rachel Mackie, UK June 2010
We have had a lovely stay and facilities/service was excellent.
Adriano Re, Cuneo, ITALIA, giugno2010
Ci siamo trovati benissimo nel vostre residence. peccato le vacanze siano sempre troppo brevi! Pansiamo di ritormarci!! GRAZIE, Sonia, Adriano e il piccolo Francesco
Godi Andrea, Ronco d'Adige, VERONA Giugno 2010
Posto incantevole, relax totale. Unica nota dolente se vogliamo trovarne una è il chiasso in piscina causato da alcuni clienti tedeschi.
Group of friends from Canada, may 2010
Lovely setting, very helpful staff - will RECOMMEND! Thank you Pablito for all your internet help!!
F. WILLIAMS, USA may 2010
This is a beutiful setting and a very nice place to stay! We have relaxed & enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks for all the good information, written & in person!
Dario Fantino, Italia - maggio 2010
Ottima esperienza, sicuramente da ripetere e da consigliare
Darren & Rita Fodor, May 2010
We could come back in a heartbeat if finances allowed. A beautiful place to visit in a extremely beautiful part of the country. Excellently maintained facilities with friendly staff.
Oddo/Coppola, Milano, aprile 2010
Servirebbe un servizio Ristorante all'interno del Residence, PS: comunque TORNEREMO LO STESSO
Herrard, France, Avril 2010
Points négatifs: radiateurs bruyants et sommier à ressort. Autrement séjour parfait, très beau cadre et mobilier de qualité; très propre!
DONNESI ALBA, Napoli - Aprile 2010
Ottima accoglienza e grande ospitalità, luogo bellissimo e app.to con tutti i comforts.
Ryan White, Belgique, April 2010
Wonderful apartment! Great location, great rates. Would love to come back again, will definitely recommend to friends, Thanks!
Brad & Christina Anderson, Australia, 21/04/2010
This place is fantastic - I would suggest getting a professional photographer in to take better pictures for website (The rooms are much bigger than they appear on website)
Meghan Wicks, Australia, 05/04/2010
Our stay was relaxing and very confortable. Thank you so much!
L.G. FOKKE, 2010
It is not allowed to park in fromt of the apartments, but still many guests do so, anyway. The activities for children were very good.
Emiliano Cavallasca, Lecco, Marzo 2010
Bellissimo posto, soprattutto tranquillo, Receptionist molto gentile e cordiale, assolutamente da ritornarci.
Amaya Cebrian San Martin, Spain, Marzo 2010
It would be great to be able to watch international TV channels, now ther's just one (BBC) and cannot be seen well.
The heating needs many hours working to get just 20°C. I think that it needs to be improved, also ecologically speaking.
In summary we've got a "SUPER CLASS" hosting service. It is clear that all details have been studied many times and it has been a very good time that we could have here- Congratulations!!!!
Astrid Dhaenens. Oct. 2009
Breakfast: much choice, very well prepared
Anon. October 2009
The road could be more signed, ther's no Borgo al cerro sign on the road towards to Colle de Val d'Elsa. The gas wasn't working. However despite of that the place is reallt fantastic!!! We'll recommend Thanks!
Dietmar Bühling, Deutschland, Sept. 2009
Wir haben uns in dieser reizvollen Anlage sehr wohl gefühlt. Ein kleines Geschäft/Einkaufsmöglichkeit für das Nötigste wäre gut. Die Duschkabinen sind zu klein.
Damien & Cindy from AUSTRALIA, September 2009
Dear Borgo al Cerro Staff,
Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay for our honeymoon. Your gift of wine to help us celebrate is also much appreciated!
We regret not being able to thank you in person as we have had to check out early in order to catch a train. However, we assure you that we have left Apartment 1 in the same condition as when we checked in.
We have left a towel on the front terrace because there has been a small kitten which has visited us last night and we were worried that it was homeless and cold, so thought we'd leave something out there for it to keep warm.
Thank you once again.
Damien & Cindy
FAMILLE GADENNE, 15/08/2009
je m'adresse à vous car vous etes francophone.
D'abord un grand merci pour votre accueil. L'ensemble de la prestation correspondait à ce que nous espérions.
Nous espérons un jour revenir: cela dependra de notre vie familiale et de nos finances.
Un grand merci pour les deux bouteilles de vin. C'est une intention délicate.
Merci pour cet excellent séjour, reposant, le site est très accueillant et bien entretenu.
Sarah Carter, 21/08/09
Very pleasant simple decor. Well equipped. Comfortable beds. Good strong shower. Helpful staff. Giulia very friendly and welcoming. Gardens very well kept.
LAURENT MATHIEU, 15/08/09
Appartement spacieux et bien équipé. Piscine et espaces verts très bien entretenus. Personnel très accueillant.
Famille RIVIER, 22-08-2009
Afficher directement sur votre site internet les appartements qui restent libre pour les différentes périodes. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Nous reviendrons et communiquerons votre adresse à des amis. Merci pour la boteille de vin et les prunes.
Mr. & Mrs. Mattison, July 2009 (australia)
WE WERE MOST IMPRESSED WITH THE ACCOMODATION AND PARTICULARLY WITH THE PLEASENTNESS AND HELPFULNESS OF THE RECEPTION STAFF. WE WERE A LITTLE SURPRISED TO FIND THAT WE WERE NOT AUTOMATICALLY SUPPLIED WITH TOILET PAPER (BUT WE ARE NOT USED TO STAYING IN APARTMENT, SO THIS WAS PROBABLY JUST OUR MISTAKE). I WOULD LIKE THE SHOWER AREA TO HAVE BEEN MOULD FREE. WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND BORGO AL CERRO TO OUR FRIENDS. THANK YOU FOR A LOVELY STAY.
Fiorenzo Volpi (PV), 13/20 Giugno 2009
BELLISSIMO POSTO, TENUTO MOLTO BENE. IL TOP SAREBBE AVERE UN CAMPO DA TENNIS.
Franke Gutzeit & Bernahrd Justen, Germany, Mai 2009
Eine wunderbare Anlage, in der wir uns sehr wohl gefuehlt haben und gerne wiederkommen.
Angelo di Santi & Family, USA, 21/06-03/07-2009
VERY PEACEFUL & SERENE.
Tellaroli, 13/27 Juin 2009, FRANCIA
Merci pour cet accueil excellent, un personnel très sympathique, un cadre magnifique, un service de qualité et beaucoup de professionalisme. Ne changez rien!! Tout est parfait.
Frank Aardoom, 20/27 June, NL
We really had a great time again and hope to come back in a few years.
WOLF, Juni 2009 - D
Es gibt nichts zu kritisieren; wir haben uns sehr wohl gefuehlt.
Familie Uhl / 30.Mai - 6.Juni 2009, Deutschland
Schoener, erholsamer Urlaub; gute Lage. Vielen Dank!
Group O'Connel - June 2009, Ireland
A welcome pack would have been beneficial to us. Stating places to eat, days restaurant is closed (Monday!) etc... Also, for people staying a week or more, fresh towels and bed linen should be provide3d after 3-4 days.
But we really enjoyed our stay at Borgo al Cerro. It is really a beautiful and relaxing place with welcoming and friendly staff.
Milena Rossato, Maggio 2009 (Belgique)
I wrote on tripadvisor a review last thursday but I don't know if they received it. Anyway, I just wnated to say that I and my friends had an excellent stay. We got a very warm welcome. Our apartment was perfect, the swimming pool too! The location of Borgo al Cerro is wonderful, peaceful. I will surely recommend it to everybody I know and wants to visit Toscany. I went several times to Toscany but sincerely, Borgo al Cerro was the best!!!!
The scenary of Toscany is simply breathtaking. I will defenately return one day, and when I return, I'll come back to Borgo al Cerro. That's for sure.
ps: you can tag as many pictures from facebook as you want.
Anna Persson, 3/6 June 2009, Sweden
We would gladely recommend our friends to stay here !!!
Peter Post, NL, April 2009
John Eagle - UK, 16/23 May 2009
As excellent, peaceful & good as it has been in previous visits; we will come again.
Juergen Opladen, GERMANY, 28/04 - 06/05 2009
-Rezeption koennte abends laenger zu erreichen sein, z.B. bis 21 Uhr
-Handtuecher koennten gewechselt werden
Sonst alles prima! Die Anlage ist aussergewoehnlich schoen und wir kommen gerne wieder!!! :-)
Arie Riem, NL, 25/04-02/05 2009
Dear owners and keepers of Borgo al Cerro Residence,Our family stayed in your Cortona appartement C1 last week. We enjoyed your “resort” very much. Beautifull scenery , perfect appartement and services.Only points,in my oppinoion that could be changed for the better are;- temperature of the swimming pool was very low.- I would appreciate a small football or baseball field to do some sports with the kids (and parents) Thank you for creating such an attractive place !With regards,Drs. A.H.O. Riem
Dear Drs. A.H.O. Riem
we are very pleased to know you enjoied your stay at Borgo al Cerro!
we agree with your suggestions and we like to answer as follows:- in order to have the pool warmer, we would need to buy a heating system which is quite expensive and complicate ! we chose, for now, to keep the pool area open very early in the season as, if the weather is good, our guest can enjoy the pool even if they can't swim!
about the football field we have already asked to our neighbours (since a few years ago) if they could sell us a piece of the ground in front of the residence as we have no more space inside but unfortunately, we have no positive answer, at the moment!!
really hope to meet you at Borgo next time!

Die Wohnungen sind sehr gur mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet. Schön, dass auch an Dinge wie Flaschenhöffner, Schere, Geschirrhandtuch und Tischdecke sowie Wäschesländer zum Wäschenhocknen gedacht wurde. An der Rezeption wäre eine kleine Shop schön, der Dinge anbietet, die der Urlauber gerne mal vergisst oder gerne hätte, z.B. Süßigkeiten, Eis, Brot, Sonnencreme, Toilettepapier etc...
FRANK AARDOM, NL - 2007
DAVID WARREN, ENGLAND - 2007
Apts would benefit from plastic cups and plates to take to pool area, more glassware and bigger cups. There should be more loungers available as we run out on many days. We did not use the restaurant but had it been on site (next to reception). Most people , think would have. This said, we have had a fantastic holiday and we almost certainly book again next year.
HELEN CAUNCE, UK - 2007
LEGGE FAMILY, UK - 2007
Overall we have enjoyed our first self-catering holiday at Borgo al Cerro; we self-cate all the time in England and Sarden, so we feel these are a few suggestions we can make: first, after travelling a courtesy basket of milk, water, tea, coffee, juice etc.. should be opportunal on arrival, and an electric kettle would have been very helpful; you may check tha gas connection under the sink in the kitchen, we feel this is a small leak.

Just wanted to mention the insect nest in our bathroom above the shower and bidet for following customers, and the poor isolation with the appartement above. Thank you very much! Hope to come back in future.

I would have liked the apartment to have been cleaned each week. We stayed for two weeks and it really needed a good clean after one week. Other than this we have had a fantastic time and everyone is very friendly. We will recommend it to our family and friends (it was recommended to us by Family Fuller) Many Thanks!
FAMILY DONS, UK - 2007
Could use some tongs in the kitchen and a spatula. Extra pillows would be good as either too hard or too thin. Beautiful and restful we really enjoyed our stay and couln't have asked for more. Reception staff were great and nothing was a bother. Clothes drying rack was great.

We would like to know the seasonal times the restaurant and pool are open. But we had a faboulus time and enjoyed this secluded, yet connected, piece of Tuscany. We would love to return soon. Oh! And a cutting board for bread would be nice!! Also instructions for heat: hot water not before 8,30 am!! And spare rolls of toilet paper.Grazie! We had a lovely visit
FAMILY GREIG, UK-2007
We have had a lovely time at Borgo al Cerro and will tell all our friends in the UK how beautiful and peaceful it is and what a great experience it is to explore Tuscany. Our only minor criticism would be that the only English language channel TV station is CNN; I think we may should have BBC and an English language movie channel
