My husband, children and I were Dennis and Gilly's 2nd guests after their purchase of Calcinaia. We enjoyed our stay with them so much that I talked my sisters and their husbands into returning with us for another visit. I must admit I was a little nervous that I had built up our experiences to them - but fortunately their stay at Borghetto Calcinaia far surpassed all their expectations!!

And of course this was the case. When you are surrounded by great beauty every day, have incredible chefs cook for you at your villa, have exciting day trips within an hour of your home base, and have the best possible hosts you can ask for, how could a stay with Dennis and Gilly not surpass all expectations? It is paradise.

A perfect house

We stayed for a week at Dennis and Gillys farmhouse in Tuscany. It was a house and an experience that couldn't have been better and exceeded our high expectations of our vacation in Tuscany.

The house has been renovated in a beautiful way to keep the charm of the old house while having all the modern facilities. We spent a lot of time by the pool that has a spectacular view of the surrounding fields and the lake in the valley.

All four bedrooms were large with ensuite bathrooms that were newly renovated.

Dennis and Gillys hospitality were amazing! They helped us out with food when we forgot that the supermarkets closes early on Sundays, they gave us lots of tips of local restaurants and Dennis accompanied us to the nearby golf course that would have been a hazel to find otherwise.

All in all it is a house and hosts that we could recommend to anyone wanting to rent a house in Tuscany.

Just Wonderful!

This lovely old farmhouse is simply beautiful. Every detail is well thought out and attended to. We were three couples traveling for our first time in Italy and it was truly an amazing experience. I cannot rave enough about Borghetto Calcinia. We were greeted with a welcome basket and a tour of the grounds. The area is lovely and our hosts, Dennis and Gilly were kind, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. On Sunday Dennis took us up the mountain to "Vosco's" for lunch. The food and the company were superb. We traveled to many of the surrounding towns. They are all charming. I must have taken a million pictures. We took the train to Florence one day, called Dennis on our way back for a restaurant recommendation and he arranged for us to eat at a wonderful place in Anghiari ...just like that! When we arrived, we discovered that the owner/chef had opened a little early just for us!.The food was fantastic! Our last night Monica came in and cooked for us. It was the perfect meal to end our trip. I hope my travels bring me back to this little piece of paradise.

Es wurde alles getan, um unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm wie nur vorstellbar zu machen. Wir haben es sehr gern angenommen: eure Freundlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft, euer wundervolles Grundstück mit dem schönen Haus und der geschmackvollen Einrichtung, eure gute Kenntnis von Land und Leuten und den so angenehmen Restaurants. Es fiel uns sehr leicht, dieses als wahre Exklusivität zu empfinden....
Ganz, ganz herzlichen Dank!

A Beautiful Corner of Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 20-Jan-2013

My partner and I were looking for somewhere quiet and scenic in Tuscany to stay but close enough to Tuscan towns to provide us with restaurants and entertainment. Our search took us to Borghetto Calcinia where we stayed in The Apartment and we were not disappointed. The accommodation was beautifully Tuscan, very comfortable and had clearly been professionally cleaned. We had everything we needed from a welcome basket, all the cooking facilities and a comfortable bed to rest our heads after a long day of site seeing. There was a perfect terrace where we sat most mornings enjoying our breakfast and the fabulous views of the Lake Montidoglio. We opted for a meal on arrival cooked by Gilly, which I would highly recommend. The food was delicious, very traditional and in my view deserving of Michelin Stars. Both Dennis and Gilly had a great knowledge of the local areas directing us to fantastic places to see and suggesting the best restaurants. With Dennis’ help we booked train tickets on line to visit the fabulous city of Florence. We had hired a car and with a short drive to Arezzo (also a great place to visit) we were on a train and in to Florence within about an hour and a half. My partner was keen to try some Italian wines and at our request Dennis organised for us to visit a vineyard, Santa Vittoria and we had the best day. The manager was very friendly and spoke very good English and we came away having bought some Italian wines all packaged and shipped back home for a very reasonable price. Borghetto Calcinia was the perfect place to stay and enjoy time to rest and relax I would highly recommend it. In fact this year we are planning a trip back to stay in the farmhouse with our family.
