Perfect early autumn retreat

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I recently stayed in the one-bed house at Borghetta Calchinaia and enjoyed 10 days of wonderful early-October sunshine, combined with all the benefits of being slightly out of season: easy accss to the best retaurants (of which there are many close by) and to view the beautiful hill-top towns with their stupendous art; plus the over-abundance of fresh seasonal foods and wines.
The property has been lovingly restored, to the highest modern standards and sits in a beautiful garden with stunning views over the lake and surrounding hills.

On a Tuscan hill

  • 5 out of 5
We have recently returned from a two week stay at Borghetto Calcinaia. The house is perfectly situated on a hill above a lake in an area of great beauty, within easy reach both of national parks and of enchanting local hill top towns (Anghiari, Sansepolcro, Arezzo and Monterchi). It has everything that one might expect of a high grade Tuscan villa - the generous pool surrounded by olive trees, the gracious rooms with high ceilings, the terrace with its shaded dining table - but two features are absolutely outstanding and make it unique in our experience. First, the entire property (main house, apartments and surrounding gardens) has been conceived, decorated and presented with great taste and sophistication. It is a most gracious place in which to spend time. Secondly, Dennis and Gilly have a real gift for hospitality and approach guests with an open-hearted generosity of spirit which is utterly disarming. This is expressed not just in small but touching ways (home-made jam and oil in a welcome basket, a daily delivery of bread, a well-timed batch of exquisite freshly-baked muffins as guests arrived) but in their remarkable willingness to help when problems arose, to deploy their enormous fund of local knowledge to assist and to draw on some of their considerable credit balance of local goodwill for our benefit. They were a totally discreet presence but also a warm, kind and completely dependable source of advice and practical help. We had a party ranging in age from 14 to 77. Everybody felt at home immediately and seemed to enjoy themselves enormously. We have stayed in houses in Italy before; we have even stayed elsewhere in this area before; we have never stayed anywhere remotely like this. Very highly recommended.

A perfect place with perfect hosts

  • 5 out of 5
We (a family with young children of 6 and 3) have just returned from two perfect weeks - of lazing around the pool, enjoying the local restaurants, and gentle sight-seeing - at Borghetto Calcinaia, in the country near Anghiari and Sansepolcro in Tuscany.

The beautiful, well appointed house had everything and more needed for our stay (4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, comfortable lounge, and well-equipped kitchen). It is set in stunning terraced gardens - a labour of love for Gilly, garden designer and author - on a hill sloping down to a lake, with covered terrace and barbeque area above a large pool. The location was ideal - in the country, quiet and private, but within a short drive of Anghiari, a medieval walled town (and source of supplies), and easy day-trip of Sansepolcro, Arezzo, Siena, etc.

But perhaps what most made the stay for us were our hosts, Dennis and Gilly. They are charming, interesting, kind, and good fun. Their assistance with everything from bread, to supermarkets, local restaurants, and sight-seeing was never far away without ever feeling intrusive.

We are already planning to return. If you are thinking of visiting Tuscany with a family and looking for a base for holiday and sight-seeing, don't hesitate. This is a perfect place to stay with perfect hosts.

A perfect place, with perfect hosts, in Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
We (a family of 4 with children of 6 and 3) have just returned from a perfect holiday - a mix of lazy days around the pool, good meals in the many excellent local restaurants, and sightseeing trips - at Borghetto Calcinaia in the country near Anghiari and Sansepolcro in Tuscany.

The house is beautiful, has plenty of room (4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a comfortable lounge, a well-equipped kitchen), is very well-furnished, and has everything you will need and more for a relaxing stay. The location and grounds (a labour of love for Gilly, garden designer and author) are also stunning. The house sits in a terraced garden on a hill sloping down to a lake, with covered outside courtyard and barbeque, above a large pool. The house is a short drive to Anghiari, medieval walled-town (and source of supplies), and within easy day-trip (or less) of Sansepolcro, Arezzo, Siena, etc.

Perhaps more than anything, what made the stay were our hosts, Dennis and Gilly. They are charming, interesting and kind. Their advice on everything from bread, to supermarkets, to restaurants, to local sights was invaluable - and provided without any sense of intrusiveness.

We are already planning our next trip. If you are thinking of travelling to Tuscany, don't hesitate - Borghetto Calcinaia is a fabulous place to stay and great base for exploring a wonderful part of the world.

The Beavers and Wives

  • 5 out of 5
We booked this villa for a holiday in Tuscany as a group of friends with the expectation of having a good time in pleasant surroundings. What we got was the most amazing week with fabulous hosts, great place to stay, wonderful weather and outstanding food. We all loved it without exception.
The standard of accommodation is second to none. Dennis and Gilly's passion for the place which is their home is reflected in the welcome they extend to their guests and their attention to detail in what is provided.
The welcome dinner cooked by Gilly is highly recommended, as is the service from a visiting chef and Lena who patiently taught us how to make pasta.
We also particularly enjoyed Sunday lunch at Vasco's so make sure you book that ahead of your stay. Vasco made sure we were fed and watered and also changed a wheel on the car as we had a flat tyre.
We would all love to return to this wonderful part of Italy again as we feel we have barely scratched the surface.

From the Ten Who Fell in Love With PAM.

  • 5 out of 5
The Borghetto Calcinaia is a fabulous villa smack in the middle of the beautiful Tuscany region of Italy. The amenities of the villa are top flight and the neighboring towns of Anghiari and Sansopulcro, along with the countryside, will give you a sense of what this part of Italy was like four or five hundred years ago. But as rewarding as all that is, perhaps the best part of the stay was being introduced to Dennis and Gilly, two of the most generous and delightful hosts you'll ever encounter. They made our stay so much more meaningful and took the time to make sure we were introduced to the highlights of the area throughout the week and took a genuine interest in how much we were enjoying our stay at this marvelous villa. There were 9 of us in our group and Dennis and Gilly both got to know all of us individually bringing us as much knowledge of the area as laughter throughout each brief visit with them. I can attest to the fact that our desire to return is as much focused on the beauty of the area, as it is on the genuine and lasting friendship that's developed between us with Dennis and Gilly. If you're evaluating places to stay Tuscany, look no further. Book your time, regardless of how brief it may be, at the Borghetto Calcinaia. I can attest. You'll want to write a review similar to this one upon your return home. Ciao!
