Nicely restored property with a wonderful view - a good base for going to Florence
We have enjoyed a week at Borgo di Sopra, a perfect location uphill overlooking the wine yards and the Tuscan landscape. It is at very nicely restored defense tower originally belonging to the wine yard castle on top of the hill. It has all modern facilities but with the respect for the local architecture which makes it very authentic. There are very nice terraces to all flats that are quite private. There are no tourists in the area and the road is a dead end meaning no disturbances at all. The road description looks a little complicated at first, but is very accurate and easy to find your way. You can choose to stay or use it for a base for going to Florence (very easy by train) or by car to several interesting cities including Siena. After a day trip to the cities it is a very quiet and peaceful place to rest. Daily shopping is easy at COOP in the local city Pontassieve, and there is also a highly recommendable ice-cream bar in the city. The host family is pleasant and helpful in the amount you need, with advice for tours and traffic or other practical issues. We give our full recommendations for both location, facilities and hosts.
Exquisite property and stay
We stayed at Villa Borgo di Sopra for one week during winter, and we were beyond happy with our choice for many reasons. The villa and surrounding property itself were extraordinary—every detail had been lovingly restored and given precise attention. This property could easily pass for a 4+-star resort.
Jane and Gianpiero were wonderful hosts, always ready to answer a question, make a reservation, make sure we were comfortable, and give advice on sightseeing. Arriving at night, we found the directions to the villa accurate, and Jane was there to shepherd us through the last turn in the road as we pulled into the villa.
After a busy week in Rome, we enjoyed mixing sightseeing with relaxing. The villa proved a place where you could rest and recharge (and play), or keep busy every day with activities in the region. For couples, this property is especially romantic. We stayed in to enjoy our most favorite elements: the roaring fireplace, spacious dining room for meals "at home", and Jane and Gianpiero's pets, Peggy Guggenheim and Jasmine, who visited with us in our living room and even slept with us a couple of nights. As animal lovers, what a comfort and joy as we missed our furbabies from back home!
Even though it was January, there were several days when it was warm enough to sit outside in the sun and read a book at one of the outdoor sitting/dining areas. There were picturesque views of the Tuscan countryside from nearly every window. The photos of the villa are incredibly accurate, but even more beautiful in person. The beds are very comfortable and the linens seemingly brand-new. If we had one issue, it was that the hot water in the second bathroom was difficult to control, so showers were either scalding hot or freezing cold, but that wouldn't be an issue with taking a bath, and it was our fault for never asking for advice.
We had rented a car and were just 40-minutes from Florence and an hour+ from Pisa. We enjoyed exploring the little villages and ancient towns in the surrounding hills. Within a couple miles of the villa is a wonderland of reasons to get lost on purpose.
We genuinely loved every moment of our stay and are trying to figure out how to return!
Thank you so much Jane, Gianpiero, Peggy and Jasmine!
Thank you for your informative review. January is a quieter time of year here but can be so beautiful and means you never have to wait in line when visiting the museums. Thank you for being intrepid and finding us!
Un piccolo angolo di paradiso Toscano/A little slice of Tuscan heaven
Words seem inadequate in describing our stay at Borgo di Sopra. Everything about our stay was perfect. Jane and Gianpiero were incredibly kind and gracious hosts who did more than we could have expected to make our stay as wonderful as it was.
The setting is classic Tuscany with incredible views of the grapevines and olive groves. It is an easy 25-minute train ride into Firenze, but the amount of peace and quiet we had out in the vineyards was a perfect respite from the hot and crowded city. We loved our al fresco meals under the pergola surrounded by lavender and rosemary.
On our way in, we realized we would like to eat dinner before arriving at the property, and Jane made reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant nearby. Moreover, they booked a tour at the Frescobaldi winery that is located just up the hill. Gianpiero told a wonderful history of the property (going back more than four centuries), and it was clear a lot of time and love went into the restoration of the property.
There was an incredible amount of information provided regarding train schedules, parking, restaurants, etc. that eliminated a lot of guess work and allowed us to enjoy every minute we had in Tuscany.
Jane and Gianpiero’s help and knowledge made our stay in Tuscany truly unforgettable. Our only lament was that we had to leave. We look forward to visiting Borgo di Sopra again!
A wonderful 10 days!
The property is even more beautiful than pictured. The landscaping was lovely... and that view! We loved meeting Jane and Gianpiero! They were such wonderful hosts, so warm and welcoming! Jane went grocery shopping for us before we arrived; it was nice to be able to settle in as soon as we got there and not have to worry about shopping.
My kids loved playing with their dog and cat. It was an unexpected surprise (they also enjoyed Jane and Gianpiero:))
Pontassieve is just a 5 minute drive from the property, and from there you can easily catch a train to Florence.
We enjoyed our stay, and I hope we can return one day!
pour se ressourcer en pleine nature, avec une vue magnifique, à 20 minutes en train de Florence
Un beau logement tout confort et très bien équipé, avec les chambres climatisées (apprécié en cette fin juillet 2018 très chaude), beaucoup d'espace a l'extérieur (terrasse, pergola, ping pong, grand jardin), qui ont été très appréciés par chaque membre de la famille (1 couple + 3 enfants ados/jeune adulte). Un accueil chaleureux.Nous avons rayonné très facilement à Florence (par le train), ainsi qu'à Sienne et dans les villages de la Toscane (en voiture).Je cherche des points négatifs mais n'en trouve pas...
