Have just spent two nights with my partner at Locanda Il Fornello as part of a Tuscany tour. Room and bed very comfortable and absolutely spotless but what made it for us were the people who ran the hotel. Nothing was to much trouble, from supplying gluten free bread and biscuits for my partner, advising us on the best local... More

This lovely property had been run by a Dutch couple for many years before the current Italian management took it over. They still accomodate many Dutch but we were actually the first Irish people to stay there. Its a traditional old Italian farmhouse set amongst a vineyard on the outskirts of Altopascio. The pool is kept very clean and there... More

This is a good B&B with a large appartment too, if you wished to do your own catering. There is also an excellent restaurant (we ate there twice) adjacent to the garden. The swimming... More

New owners had just taken over this small hotel. They have a lot of work in front of them, but the two delightful owners from Holland (she speaks 6 languages) seem up to the challenge, with their little dog Flip too. The mattress in our room was horrible. I didn't sleep in the three nights I was there. The owners... More
