"Agréable séjour en toscane"
Très bel appartement propre et fonctionnel même pour 4 adultes. Situé dans un village vacance propre et très calme, au cœur de la toscane à distance convenable des points remarquables de la région (Florence, Sienne...)
Propriétaire sympathique et à l'écoute.
Location à recommander tant pour son prix abordable que pour son confort.
Village un peu compliqué à trouver. Se munir d'une bonne carte et se repérer à la tour du resto panoramique.

"Ideally located to visit Tuscany and to relax in the countryside near the pools"
We had a great time in Il Borghetto. The houses are big, there is enough space for a family with two teenagers. The pools are very nice and there were always deckchairs available in the sun or in the shade.
We visited a lot of nice places since Il Borghetto is situated near San Gimignano and Volterra, and an hour's drive from Siena, Pisa, Firenze.
At the same time, it is a very calm place in the countryside, very agreable.
