Location Borgo di Sopra
Superbe séjour. La maison offre une vue magnifique sur la campagne toscane, elle est très confortable. Le calme absolu.
Accueil chaleureux des propriétaires qui restent disponibles et discrets. Nous recommandons.
The home and views were absolutely amazing - second only to the hospitality shown by Jane and her husband.
Astounding Property, Beautiful Hosts, a real treasure
First of all I want to give Borgia Di Sopra more than 5 stars! Jane and Gian Piero were both delightful AND extremely helpful. Not only is their property exactly as described, it is so restful and extremely clean. Everything about this place is what you would want for a Tuscan Holiday. The kitchen has all manner of dishes and tools needed if you decide to cook in. The bedrooms and the baths are also nicely done and quite spacious.
Jane has also compiled a nice book of information regarding places to dine in Pontassieve and the surrounding countryside.
The train station to Florence is convenient and, if needed, you can leave your car overnight. We did not find driving in Italy all that confusing (if you are familiar with round-a-bouts).
While we were staying at Jane’s they were harvesting their olives for their olive oil - this was fun to watch and I am sure a lot of work for them (but we did not participate - because we are lazy Americans - but I am sure we could have if we had wanted!! Perhaps another time)
Additionally the Frescobaldi vineyards surround the property and the Castello di Nipozzano is just up the hill from their property and is a nice hike. All manner of nice hiking in the area if you are so inclined.
Also we were happy they have a wonderful grinning Italian greyhound mix Jasmine - It was great since we could not bring our own four legged family member on this trip.
Just a side note: Jane went out of her way not once, but twice to assist us with our car. We ended up with a flat in which she assisted us by taking us to a tire repair and helped us with the Italian translation, and also provided us with a dead battery jump on the day of our departure.
These are seriously good people and just delightful, we sure hope to return - perhaps in late May when the nightingales are singing :-)
