Gorgeous aparment in a beautiful residence

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Borgo with our 2 year old. Lovely, clean, well maintained apartment. Beautiful setting, lovely staff on hand and nice restaurants just walking distance away.

Great owners, super helpful and friendly.

This was already our second visit and I'm sure not the last!

great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb time at the Borgo, the staff are very friendly and relaxed, the view is beautiful, the pool wonderful, and it's ideal that we could dine outside with our baby asleep within reach of the "babyphone". Even though the terrace was under our bedroom window, it didn't disturb us at all. And it's within about an hours drive of so many great places like Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, the beach etc. etc...

Another perfectly deserved five-star rating!

  • 5 of 5

The best holiday we’ve had for years, and in the best location. Great views, gorgeous apartment, sparkling service, fantastic food, brilliant weather - everything was perfect!

We received loads of really useful information before we left too – suggestions for days out, reviews of local restaurants, maps, hints and tips. I really can’t recommend this place highly enough for a relaxing holiday – we can’t wait to go back!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in August, and couldnt fault the resort or the accommodation.

The apartment is ideal, beautifully finished, and well equipped.

We particularly enjoyed the pool area and the Enoteca, fantastic food and everything is well priced.

We will look to heading back next year for sure.

Borgo Di Colleoli Apt 45

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided at the last minute to holiday in Tuscany. The owner (Jane) could not be more helpful as we only gave a few days notice of our arrival. The appartment was clean and well furnished with some added personal touches. The Borgo is located in a beautiful setting and you feel that you are somewhere special. The amenities are first class with 2 good restuarants on site and a pizzaria close to the main entrance to the Borgo. There are also a number restaurants close by, about a 5 min drive. After a day's sightseeing it was nice to relax at the pool before getting ready for an evening meal. The pool was immaculate and there was never any problem finding a sun lounger. The Borgo is ideally situated for visiting places of interest such as Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Volterra and San Gimignano. Most are under an hour away by car. We really enjoyed our holiday and would highly recommend the Borgo.

Only 35 minutes from Pisa Airport yet in the heart of the classic Tuscan scenery of rolling hills and ancient hilltop villages this is the ideal location to explore the surrounding countryside and famous cities in the area. From the nearby train station at Pontedera you can be at Florence in 30 minutes or Pisa in 15. Siena can be reached by car in 90 minutes and the medieval walled towns of Lucca and San Gimignano in 45. The coast can be reached in around 30 minutes by either car or train with the sandy beaches at Marina DI Pisa and chic resorts such as Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. Alternatively you could take a taxi from Pisa airport (approx 79 euros) and spend a totally relaxing week unwinding at the Borgo.
