A Tuscan Dream!Posted Jul 7, 2017 on Hotels
We stayed three nights at this beautiful small hotel because it was near Florence, but in the countryside. Once we were at the hotel, however, we didn't want to leave. Everywhere we could look were golden landscapes with rolling hills on which were hay fields and vineyards. The common areas were full of flowers and shaded seating. The breakfast was delicious. The pool was cool and appreciated in the hot afternoons. You simply have to see this place to appreciate it. The room was large and so was the bathroom. We had a small kitchen with table and chairs. The windows were shuttered, giving it an old world feel. Sleeping was quiet and excellent. Suzanna, the hostess, was uncommonly helpful and spoke English fluently. She helped us to find the train station in Castelfiorentino and gave to us numerous other small tips for sightseeing and so forth. We hope to return again in the near future. Do not miss this place if you prefer country hotels to those in cities. This place is a gem!

Tuscany's best-kept secretPosted Oct 2, 2016
It's tempting not to talk about this place because I'm afraid that if word gets out we'all never be able to get a reservation again. Le Boscarecce is heaven on earth. It's beautiful and peaceful, somewhere we looked forward to returning after the chaos of being tourists in Italy. Susanna is so friendly, welcoming, and helpful. She also prepares the most delicious dinners--we ate there every night but one. It was perfect. God willing, we will be back!

Slice of heavenPosted Aug 17, 2015 on Hotels
Found this wonderful hotel, last minute in a hectic, stressful day! Upon arrival, realized this was a place of calm enjoyment. We were offered to stay for dinner, and had the best meal of our European vacation! Each course, better than the last, with wonderful sunset views of the countryside. Breakfast was equally good! This visit was truly the highlight our our trip! Can't wait to come back!

'Great holiday location'Posted Sep 30, 2012
The hotel is situated in a wonderful country location approximately 5km from the town of Castelfiorentino. Both peaceful and tranquil if you want to relax and chill out with a swimming pool and tennis court. Walking around the garden at the end of the day is a lovely experience amongst Olive and Fig trees as well as the sweet scent of roses permeating the cooler evening air after often very warm days. Susanna is an excellent hostess and can offer great advice about any trip you want to make including best way to travel, train times, and if travelling by car suggests places of interest on route to or from your planned destination. An evening meal is planned and the menu displayed at breakfast so you have the choice to eat at the hotel or make other arrangements. The dining room is very comfortable with both table spacing and ambience whilst Guiliano as waiter is always on hand and charming. Occasionally items in the room were not replaced by the chambermaid i.e. drinks in the fridge & coffee/tea but overall the room was clean & tidy. To conclude the hotel is perfect as a location for visiting Florence, Sienna, Volterra, San Giminiagno, Monterigioni and others as well as exploring the beautiful countryside. We had a fantastic week - highly recommended!

A place to relax and look at the views.Posted Aug 15, 2012
Pros: The welcome and helpfulness of everyone.
Cons: The swimming pool loungers being bagged before breakfast. There is a bumpy yellow track to access the hotel. It deserves better.
Location: In the hills, but near enough to Castelflorentino for shopping. There is an excellent bakery at Ortimino
The owners and their staff work very hard to make their guests have a very enjoyable time. Nothing is too much trouble. The garden is well kept and colourful even in a drought. There is plenty of space to relax. There is a pool,tennis court and table tennis. It is near to so many wonderful hill top villages and towns. Dinner is provided which is good home cooking. This has to be opted in for by 1.00pm on the day. The bedrooms are plain but comfortable and have a refrigerator, kettle and excellent home made biscuits are provided.

Everything we wanted in a Tuscan vacationPosted Jun 9, 2012
Pros: The whole Tuscany experience in a single place
Cons: Wifi was spotty
Location: Location is perfect, close to the station (15min car ride) but far enough away to not see the town, just the rolling Tuscan hills
The hotel is rustic and quaint, exactly what we needed. The food at the hotel was exceptional, we actually ate there 4 times in our 5 day stay it was that good. The wine is likewise exceptional and very cheap. Susanna and her staff are awesome, so friendly and helpful. I will recommend this place to everyone and certainly revisit the hotel

sehr schöne klassische toskanische AnlagePosted May 15, 2017
Location: Das Lage des Hotels ist m.M.n. perfekt. Castelfiorentino liegt zentral zwischen allen relevanten Sehenswürdigkeiten und zu allem ca. 45min. entfernt.
Ein sehr gepflegtes Hotel mit einer tollen Eigentümerin. Stets mit wertvollen Tipps und Karten für Ausflüge die nicht im Reiseführer stehen, mit entsprechender Route und Empfehlung der richtigen Abstellplätze für das Fahrzeug. Dazu eine hervorragende Köchin mit bezahlbaren, landestypischen mehrgängigen Menüs. Wir haben uns nach dem 2. Tag entschieden regelmäßig bei ihr zu essen, da es einfach sehr lecker ist. Zu unserer Reisezeit im Mai stand der Garten in seiner vollen (Rosen-) Blüte und es war herrlich auf der terrassenartigen Fläche den Ausblick auf der Hollywood Schaukel mit einem Glas Wein zu genießen. Entschleunigung und Genuss pur. Die Anfahrt ist ein wenig holprig da abschnittsweise nur über Schotterweg erreichbar, aber das ist nicht weiter tragisch. Die interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Florenz, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena usw. liegen alle im Umkreis von ca. 35 min. bis 1 Std. Fahrt. In Florenz betreibt die Tochter von Susanna (die Eigentümerin) ebenfalls ein Hotel. Dort arangiert sie bei einem Ausflug ihrer Gäste in die Stadt eine kostenlose Parkmöglichkeit in der zentral gelegenen, hoteleigenen, geschlossenen Garage. Es ist nicht nur das Gesamtbild das überzeugt, sondern auch die Details. Es ist nicht alles perfekt, aber alles hat doch seinen Charme so dass man mit einem Lächeln über die ein oder andere Kleinigkeit hinwegsieht. Wir kommen sicher wieder.
