What a great spot in Tuscany. My wife found this family run place that has tons of charm and is well situated for a visit to Tuscany. We used it as a home base for visits to Orvieto, Cortona and San Gimignano. Rooms are big and comfortable. Ours had a nice patio overlooking olive trees and vines. Very quiet hotel.... More

We stayed here after seeing no bad reviews, which we find unusual. But the bottle of local Chianti waiting for us, the clean room, the service, and great location put us at ease, and our stay was so enjoyable we understand why they have no terrible reviews. Plenty of parking, twenty-five minute walk to the old town, quiet, very good... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This hotel is simply lovely. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. The location about 25 minutes walk from San Gimignano is superb and very peaceful. The hotel itself is so quiet, and the whole place is beautifully maintained without any fuss. The management and staff are friendly, welcoming and... More

We only stayed here one night, but we wish we had spent more time on the terrace. The sweeping view of the countryside seemed too good to be true. We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant with gnocchi, wine, bruschetta and florentine steak. Breakfast was quite extensive for Italy and was served outside overlooking Tuscany. Not an expensive... More
