Location: Borgo Bonorli


Borgo Bonorli is a hamlet of 8 houses that are nestled in a peaceful location surrounded by the Chianti hills.  There are fantastic views over the olive and vine covered hills from one side of the property, while on the other sides it overlooks the gentle slopes of the forested hills.



The large pool is invitingly situated in the well-manicured gardens and looks out across the hills to the town of Poggibonsi and on towards the medieval town of San Gimignano.


Most of the owners at this well restored typical Tuscan country property do not rent their houses so the location is ideal for a quiet and relaxing getaway. The location is superb for exploring the Chianti countryside on long walks or bike rides.

Pros Unser Urlaub im Casa Azzurra war großartig. Die Lage des Hauses ist einzigartig und der Bick zauberhaft. Das Haus übertraf all unseren Erwartungen. Schnell ist man in Sangimiliano, Siena oder Firenze - und trotzdem liegt das Haus fern ab von Trubel und Hecktik zwischen Oliven- und Weinfeldern. Der Pool wurde von uns und unseren Kindern jeden Tag genutzt.
Die Besitzer kümmern sich superschnell, wenn man eine Frage hat und Guilia, die Putzfrau war sehr herzlich und äußerst zuverlässig.
Cons Alles in allem war der Urlaub im Casa Azzurra ein Traum - Wir können das Haus von ganzem Herzen weiterempfehlen. Selbst der lange Schotterweg, der zum Haus hinführt war für uns jedes Mal ein tolles Erlebnis. Wir haben Wildschweine und Rehe gesehen!
Local attractions Das Eis in Sangimiliano ist umwerfend!

Pros Die idyllische Lage hat uns sehr gefallen! Das Haus hat seinen besonderen Charm und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Cons Die Küche war z.T. ungenügend geputzt. In der Saltaschleuder in der Küche waren alte Salatresten drin und in der Kaffemaschine war ein gebrauchter Filter drin, der nicht entleert wurde. Wir mussten die Küche zuerst auf Vordermann bringen. Wir waren zudem nicht auf den Waldweg vorbereitet. Es sollte unbedingt vorgängig informiert werden, wie der Weg zum Haus beschaffen ist und dass er nur mit 4x4 befahrbar ist!
Local attractions Es gab viele feine Restaurants in der Gegend. Alle warne ausgezeichnet! Siena hat uns allen sehr gut gefallen.

Pros De prachtige ligging boven op de berg, mooi uitzicht en ruim en netjes huis.
Cons Voordat je daadwerkelijk bij het huis bent, moet je 3 km over onverharde weg rijden door bossen en wijngaarden. En dat met nogal wat hoogteverschil en rotsachtige wegen! Dat was voor ons bij aankomst nogal een tegenvaller. Zonder Julia (sleutelbewaarder) hadden we het huis nooit gevonden. Ze was zo aardig om voor ons op te rijden....het was nl al donker toen we aankwamen. Met alleen de routebeschrijving op de site kun je het nooit vinden, zeker niet in het donker.
Local attractions Er is zoveel te bekijken in die mooie omgeving....maakt dus niet uit waar je naar toe gaat!

Pros - zeer mooie ligging
- rustig (maar we zaten er wel alleen)
- voldoende huisraad
- ideale uitvalsbasis om Toscane en de Chianti streek te verkennen
Cons - de locatie mocht wel wat properder (kussens mochten wel eens gewassen worden, stoffig, onderhoud zwembad, ... )
Local attractions - Castellina in Chianti ligt vlakbij, een gezellig klein dorpje met overheerlijke ijs en gezellige restaurants. - San Gimignano is zeker een bezoek waard ! - Siena zeker te bezoeken voor de prachtige gebouwen.

Pros le calme, la tranquilité des lieux, l'aménagement simple et fonctionnel, les ventilateurs, les bougies
Cons Cette année, nous n'avions pas d'eau chaude....et nous avons senti peu d'empressement pour résoudre le problème qui s'était semble -t-il produit avant notre arrivée. Par ailleurs la machine à laver le linge était en panne! La pelouse était aussi très abîmée ( pleine de reste de pétards ) contrairement à l'an passé. Le rapport qualité prix était donc moindre cette année. Malgré ces aléas, nous avons passé un bon séjour.

Casa Azzurra
What were the highlights of your holiday?
The view from the kitchen window is one of the best we have seen anywhere in Tuscany - at any time of day.
An unexpected concert of baroque music in the church square of San Gimignano after dark one Saturday evening.
Finding that the water temperature in the pool was 31C !
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?   
Casa Azzura is an excellent size for a family of four. All the rooms are large enough and all have fantastic views. The garden space is really nice and is close to the pool allowing for lounging between dips and a little al-fresco dining . There were a lot of comments on the To-Tuscany website about the approach road - it has been fixed up this year and was not at all bad - no problem to negotiate in a family saloon. The surface is gravel though and is used by farm machinery so it will get fairly rutted. I think the main thing that surprises people is that it takes more than ten minutes to cover the 3.5km (unless you're in a rental car!) and it's easy to give up on the arrival instructions the first time you arrive.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises?
The miniature furniture. The double bed is the smallest we have ever seen (150cm wide I think). It was very difficult for two adults to sleep comfortably. The same applies to the sofa - it barely seats two and it is the only easy chair in the apartment. The furniture is good quality and comfortable enough, just too small.
Do you have any other comments? Some insect nets on the windows would have been really nice. We had to close the windows as soon as we lit the lights at night to avoid mosquitos and it got quite stuffy.[TT comment: There are 4 electronic mosquito deterrents around the house and 3 electric fans]
