Excursions to the well-known medieval towns are easy, whether you enjoy wine-tasting, savoring the riches of Tuscan cuisine, hiking you can savor the best that Tuscany has to offer.

Borgo Vespa Review

by Nancy F
We absolutely LOVED staying at LaFoce Chiarentana. The Tiglio apartment was perfect for our family of 4, my husband and I and our 2 adult children. The setting was idyllic, could not have asked for a better introduction to the Tuscan countryside. The grounds are expansive and a swim in the pool was so refreshing. Loreena was incredibly welcoming and so helpful to us in recommending restaurants, and even called around Nfor us to book reservations. We were pleased to find in the kitchen, a welcome basket--bottle of wine, loaf of bread, meat and cheese and of course, olive oil from the estate. We were lucky enough to have the olive oil tasting dinner the first night we arrived. It was such a pleasure to meet Donata, and hear about the estate and the oils produced there. Our stay was much too short as we spent most days exploring the countryside, but it was so nice to come “home” to Tiglio at the end of the day. The whole time we kept talking about going back with extended family. I would highly recommend this property! We also booked another property with Italy perfect—Niccolo Ginestre, which was also wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to book any property through Italy Perfect—It was easy and perfect, start to finish!

Borgo Vespa Review

by Family of 5
We (parents and 3 kids, 7-11 years old) had a fantastic trip to Tuscany in July 2016.Borgo was a perfect base for exploring the region, and just as wonderful for relaxing in between adventures. The pool is nicer than the photos suggest, and is set in between a playground area for kids and a panoramic Tuscan countryside vista. Highly recommended for families. Make sure to sign up for the gelato-making class when you arrive.[Thank you Mark, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]

Borgo Vespa Review

by Marcie
Perfect information, perfect service, perfect vacation! I have lived in Rome, Italy for two years many years ago and have spent a great deal of time there. I found the Italy Perfect website, knowing exactly what I wanted. Italy Perfect was able to give me a great deal of detailed information about the rental apartment. Their notes prior to our leaving were extremely detailed and helpful. I will certainly return to them in the future. I am completely confident that anyplace rented through Italy Perfect will be...perfect!
