The hotel room was elegant, impeccable, and it was clear the owner, David Papi, paid great attention to detail. The same can be said for the dinner we enjoyed in the restaurant - I do not think you would find better service and presentation in any major city in the world - and the food was delicious!

He never forgets a request and never says he can't do something. Each room is spotless and lovingly decorated. The staff are always available and... More

The moment you arrive here, it was "wow! so nice!" Owner was there to welcome you and take you to your room. The room looks modern, new and yet in a traditional Italian style. It has a huge jacuzzi in the middle of the room. The bathroom has a steam function and relaxing music! The only problem is every remote... More

We booked a few days in Tuscany as it is usually guaranteed good weather. The hotel is perfect for relaxing by the pool in beautiful gardens with first class service. The area around the pool is plenty big enough for the number of guests so that you relly feel that you have your own space. The weather turned out to... More

The immaculate, restored Manor house exudes charm and grace. David, its owner, is warm, charming, and engaging and lives to please all of his guests. The staff is delightfully friendly and the level of sophisticated... More

My daughter found this on line which looked amazing. To our surprise when we got there it was more spectacular than what was on line. Everything was so clean and beautiful. I would've loved to take part of this home with me back to the US. David and his mom the owners couldn't have been sweeter. Extremely accommodating and was... More
