Wonderful place, great base for exploring Tuscany - but a bit fa
We received a very warm welcome from the owners Paolo and Tania when they came to meet us on arrival, and they had also been in contact several times before we arrived - which was great.
They were well prepared, and gave us a map of the area with locations of supermarkets/restaurants/emergnecy contacts etc. along with plenty of other useful information.
The Casetta was beautiful, and well equiped with everythng we could need for self catering. The outside space was perfect for eating outdoors, and the pools on the site were all very close, and had nice surroundings with plenty of good quality sun-beds.
There was a good bar/restaurant as part of the complex, but we do normally like being within walking distance of a wider variety of smaller local places - so you can relax and have a drink without worrying about driving home.
Overall we had a great holiday, and would recommend it to people looking for self catering in Tuscany.

Wonderful place in the heart of Tuscany!!
We had a fantastic trip to Tuscany, the house we rented with Paolo and Tania lay perfectly, it was a short distance to almost everything Tuscany has to offer. We traveled with our children at 4 and 12 years, earlier we have traveled in areas with Teddy and superKids clubs, but the children enjoyed themselves on this trip too.We were at the pool at our apartment most of the day and went on tour around Tuscany in the afternoon .. We visited Greve in Chianti, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Lucca, Volterra. We were also a day on the water park aqua village of Cecina.We stopped a lot and played in some of the parks, had lunch, ate a lot of icecream, a program that is also suitable for children.Are the children happy the parents are satisfied!!!This is a trip I recommend, with or without children, it was fantastic! Thanks to Paolo and Tania for letting us rent their great apartment for 14 days. We had a very wonderful and memorable holiday.

Loved Staying here! We will Return
When we arrived we were greeted by Paolo who was very pleasant and helpful. I would not describe the accommodation as a Villa, but a Town Home. There is one bedroom, and a kitchen with a couch, which has a pull-out bed, which we never opened.
.The apt. is Cozy and decorated beautifully. The bed was very comfy and the kitchen had all we needed for our one week stay. Our favorite part was the beautiful
Garden area where we would have morning coffee, late afternoon cocktails, and dinner outside. We traveled during the hot summer and enjoyed the pool also. Very, very clean, and quiet. This is a top-shelf resort area, less than one hour from Florence and Siena. The town of San G is only 15 minutes away, and I would say this was the perfect place to stay. There is a wonderful restaurant steps away that we did not try, but the Trip advisor reviews for the restaurant are also quite impressive. Although there is no air conditioning, as it is not usually needed, Paolo supplied a very nice fan that was sufficient. One last comment. There is really no Internet to speak of from the apt. If you need to connect to the internet, you must walk outside, and up the laneway. That being said, I still give this accomodation a five star review and we plan to return.
Nice & very cozy place to stay in Tuscany
Paolo & Tania are very kind. They answer any kinds of questions with patient and also show a very high regard before we go to the Casetta.
They wear customer's shoes. They meet any reasonable requests we made, and prepare well before we arrive.
It is very easy to check-in with Paolo & Tania since they will give you instructions while you are on the way and wait patiently in Casetta until you arrive.

Besides, they prepare any information you need in advance and are very happy to offer suggestions while you planning a trip in Tuscany.
The house is super clean, cozy, and elegant. All the delicate furniture and decorations are picked by Paolo & Tania.
Most important is that the house is totally a classic tuscan home with affordable price and high quality.
You will have a great experience with italian atmosphere while staying in this beautiful Casetta.
The Casetta is located in the center of Tuscany. It takes about 1 hr to Pisa & Siena, 1.5 hr to Lucca & Firenze, and 15~30 mins to Sam gimignano & monteriggioni by car.
It is very pleasant to drive on tuscany's country roads. I highly recommend you this is a perfect place to stay in Tuscany.

Excellent! Really ...
We really enjoyed our stay in the Casetta! Clean, silent and inside as well as outside everything was in perfect order.
Just a few meters to the swimmingpool though we didn´t use it.
The house is excellently located for exploring the beautiful countryside between Montignoso - San Gimignano - Volterra. We loved it.
Both Paulo and Tania are very kind and easy to get along! They speak good English.
So it is easy for us to strongly recommend you to stay in the Casetta!
Superb Facility in a Great Location
This apartment is very clean, well equipped and quiet. Bed is very comfortable. The garden patio was great for meals. The location is centralized for visiting Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, and parts of Umbria.
The host, Paolo and Tania, were very hospitable and informative, with local information and tips on local sights, restaurants and where to obtain groceries and other supplies. We would definately stay here again.

Very Quiet and Peaceful and close to everywhere in Tuscany
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The surroundings were beautiful. It was so quiet and relaxing to either sit out front and enjoy a glass of wine or to lay out at one of the beautiful pools. San Gimigiano is very closeby. Other cities in Tuscany can be reached in approximately 1 hour. I would recommend that you have a GPS. The roads wind all over and the street signs are very difficult to decipher.

Cozy and clean apartment when you want to explore Tuscany
We stayed for a week in Paolo's and Tania's apartment. Both their greeting upon arrival and the decoration of the house, gave us a warm and welcome feeling. We really enjoyed the garden (the best one at resort "Borgo la Fernace"!) and swimming pools. The location is great for exploring Tuscany, like the Chianti wine route and also the cities of Firenze, Siena and San Gimignano. Paolo and Tania, thank you for your kindness and great service!

Una Experiencia Fantastica EN Toscana
Una experiencia inolvidable. Paolo y Tania, encantadores y la casa, que decir, igual que en las fotos publicadas, no le falta ningún detalle. El entorno inmejorable, los jardines, piscinas, etc. En cuanto a la ubicación muy buena porque está en el centro de la Toscana a 11 km.de San Gimignano. Los pueblos y ciudades, todos merecen la pena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Cortona, los pueblos del Chianti, Siena, Volterra, y como no Florencia una maravilla.
La comida, en general, muy buena y puedes comer de restaurante o en locales de comida rápida que hay a millones. Nosotros fuimos una pareja con 2 niños de 9 y 13 años y a los cuatro nos encantó.
Si tenéis oportunidad de ir, no dejéis de comer en "Bar-Restaurante el panini" que está a 2 km.de la casa en dirección a San Gimignano ( en Castagno ), justo saliendo a la carretera a la derecha y por supuesto a la Gelateria "di piazza" en San Gimignano.
Muchas gracias Tania y Paolo por ofrecernos vuestra casa para pasar unas vacaciones inolvidables

simplemente perfecto y maravilloso
Somos una pareja con dos hijos de 11 y 12 años y estuvimos 10 días en el mes de agosto. La casa es perfecta , mejor que en las fotos, no echas nada en falta . Es acogedora y cómoda y el complejo es precioso y muy cuidado, ademas todo el mundo es muy amable. Es como si estuvieras en tu propia casa. Esta cerca de san gimignano , en una carretera tranquila y con restaurantes cercanos . Lo mejor no se si es el dormir en el mes de agosto con una colcha o la tranquilidad de la piscina y el jardín privado. Todo perfecto. Gracias paolo y tania por vuestra cordialidad y vuestros detalles. Nos informaron de todo y solo puedo decir que pasamos unos días simplemente perfectos.
We had a very good time at Il Borgo la Fornace!!
The appartment was very good, nice, and clean and very good kitchen, bathroom en bedroom. It is a very quit place to stay and enjoy your holiday with childeren.

Thanks so much Paolo and Tania for sharing your lovely Casetta in Tuscany. It was beautifully decorated with wonderful conveniences. The location was great for us to travel to so many wonderful places like Siena, Volterra, Florence, San Gimignano, Pisa, the list goes on...after sight seeing all day we would always look forward to swimming and relaxing by the beautiful pool. Paradise!!
Would Highly Recommend
Thanks Paolo and Tania for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. We booked this apartment based on other comments and were not disappointed. It was clean and comfortable. Spectacular garden area to eat outside in throughout the day. Three pools along with spa, restaurant and bar. Very close to several beautiful small hillside ancient towns.
We arrived 2 hours late because our cell phone didn't work consistently and Paolo and Tania were there to greet us with smiles nonetheless and pages of local information.
We would absolutely return to this apartment, location and price incredible.

A place to be.
La Casetta del Borgo was for us a very pleasant, clean and cosy stay. Everything you need is present in the house and the host is very friendly and helpfull.
We realy felt at home in this appartment, that is part of a little, but very comfortable resort "Borgo la Fernace".
From this place we visited the nice and wonderful villages and towns of this part of Toscane, like Siena, Volterra, Lucca, S.Gimignano and don't forget the Colle di Val d'Elsa.
And every day in the late afternoon we went "home", to enjoy this wonderfull appartment with his colourfull and restfull garden.
We've stayed for one week at La Casseta Del Borgo. Very clean , comfortable and cute house, well furnished and equipped with everything you could need . My husband loves to cook, so we were preparing dinner and breakfast every day in the kitchen. The garden in front of the house is perfect for romantic dinner... with beautiful flowers and trees.
Paolo and Tania were waiting for us with a bottle of wine and typical tuscany biscuits for the Easter :) So nice... after our long trip!
We spent a great time at Tuscany, traveling every day with our almost one year old boy.
There are 3 pools in the complex, so .. it will be perfect for the summer too.
The whole complex is luxury, quiet, comfortable and just in the forest.
Thank you so much, Paolo and Tania , for making our vacation perfect!

Cómoda, apacible. La "pura Toscana"
Si te gustan los bonitos paisajes, ve a la Toscana; si quieres trasladarte al pasado, visita cualquiera de sus pueblos; si quieres aislarte del mundanal ruido, acude a este tranquilo conjunto residencial, y, dentro de él, si quieres sentirte como en tu propia casa, permanece en la que te ofrecen, con todos sus pequeños y grandes detalles, los educados, amables y encantadores Tania y Paolo.
We spent a wonderful week at Paolo's and Tania's place over the summer. Our 4-year-old son adored the pool and playground, and my wife even took advantage of the spa at the hotel. We found the location perfect as a launching pad for visits around Tuscany, such as to Pisa, Florence and San Gimignano. In the evenings, my wife prepared dinner in the kitchen and we dined in our private garden. Our week there was like a dream, and we hope to go back to La Casetta again some time soon.

Very nice stay in central tuscany
We enjoyed a very nice stay in the villa la casetta del Borgo. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Mr Paolo Cerbioni and his wife Tania. The villa is in central Tuscany with all the famous cities of Tuscany within 1 hour drive.
Very cute, clean & comfortable apartment
My wife and I spent a week at La Furnace in La Casetta del Borgo. Paolo and Tania have given serious attention to detail in planning for the comfort of their guests. It is all that it represents to be. It is located ideally for exploration of the hill towns of Tuscany which we spent a week doing by car. La Furnace is a nice resort staffed with friendly, accomodating personnel. We could not have asked for more.
