The house lived up to its description of having spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. It is situated half way up the hillside in the vineyard,making the approach unsuitable for cars without a reasonable ground clearance, but our hired Golf had no problem. We received a warm welcome and Jane and her husband had provided everything we could possibly require to enjoy our holiday, right down to the timetable for the train into Florence. The house is beautifully restored and has very comfortable accommodation and every mod. con. Jane and her family live in an adjacent property and Pontassieve is only about 10 minutes away so although the property has its unique setting, there is no feeling of remoteness.
The villa was beautifully presented, comfortable and well equipped.
Although very rurally located the distances to the delights of Tuscany are easily manageable for day trips.
Jane and Giampierro were very welcoming, friendly and ready to help in any way they could. The top tips for restaurants wherever we planned to visit were gratefully received.
would recommend this property for couples and families looking for a quiet relaxing holiday , who want to get away from it all.
You will need a car when staying here, but you can easily visit Florence by train.
Would return again to "recharge the batteries" in a heart beat.
Thank you Jane and Giampierro for a lovely stay 😀
We stayed at the property Villa for 9 days. Jane had given us instructions how to find the accommodation which we did with no issues. As you approach the property you just gasp at the amazing Tuscan countryside you are driving through. The property sits on a hill, rural and with a castle sitting above it. The views are simply spectacular. We got the most friendly of welcomes when we arrived. Villa/Alba has 2 floors and very spacious. You have everything you could possibly need and the place is spotlessly clean. Aircon is provided but we never used it even though the temperature was 35 degrees everyday. Villa remained cool. Jane leaves a book of info for you regarding the house and surrounding area. I would recommend going into Florence. The train takes about 29 mins and costs little more than 3euros50!
We had a wonderful time. Jane and her family are lovely. Tuscany at its beautiful peaceful best. We hope to go back. Laura and Kevin x
Borgo di Sopra - can be roughly translated as a "home away from home."
We spent a wonderful holiday here in May of 2015 and decided to return once again. The property is absolutely beautiful, the estate extremely well kept and the music of nature plays countless symphonies for guests. Rest and relaxation is practically guaranteed...but if one should need any insider tips or information, Jane and Giampiero are more than delighted to make recommendations. Their extensive knowledge of the area (even Firenze/Florence!!) is priceless: restaurants, hotspots, local favourites -- we have NEVER been disappointed!
We will definitely return again and are already missing our home away from home....and of course our little "Italian family." (-:

Wir hatten über Ostern eine sehr schöne Woche in Borgo die Sopra.
Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll Eingerichtet. Es ist alles vorhanden was das Herz begehrt. Jane und Gianpiero haben uns einen warmen Empfang bereitet und uns bei Bedarf mit wertvollen Tipps geholfen. Der Ort ist Ideal um Ruhe und Erholung zu finden. Wir haben die Tage dort sehr sehr genossen und erinnern uns gerne daran zurück. Definitiv ein Ort den man nicht nur einmal besuchen sollte.
Viele liebe Grüße

Amazing just can't say enough about the beauty, hospitality and the attention to detail Jane and her family were very gracious and knowledgeable and did not hesitate to assist us with any questions directions or great places to eat or visit they took the time to drive us to the train station to catch the train into Rome. Wonderful experience l would not hesitate if l was asked to return to ltaly to stay with Jane and her family.
