Good value for money. Would certainly go there again. The restaurant was easily the best in the Pistoia area.

Incredible view, excellent restaurant, beautiful early 19th century structure. Ask to see the chapel. Just 10 minutes by car to the historic center of Pistoia. Great walk through the hills above the hotel. Rooms are quite comfortable, silent and elegant. There is no internet if you care about that. The owner doesn't speak English but the receptionists do.

My husband and I booked this hotel as the pictures show a nice quite pool with lots of loungers, ideal for the country break we were looking for. Upon arrival we found out that the pool is open to the public, this meant that when we strolled down to the pool this morning we were greated by a queue of... More

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice building with comfortable rooms, in quite a nice (and certainly quiet) location quite some way out of Pistoia (nothing else around - so make sure you book their restaurant if you don't want to drive). It has a 'big', albeit not very spectacular view of the valley below. BUT... we booked two nights... More

Up a mile of winding country lane the hotel is a former monastery. Striking architecture and a great location in gardens 20 miles from Florence and with views over the Tuscan countryside make it a great spot. The rooms are clean and well furnished, if a little gloomy, but that's the monastic life. The restaurant is more than adequate -... More

An appropriate "ill wind" whipped up from the perfect summer evening as we sat enjoying the view across the valley below us from the open air of il Conventos outdoor dining area/courtyard. Feasting on the most delicious of food in the stark but yet oddly ambient surroundings. My wine glass toppled in the wind which like all good horror movies... More

A very nice hotel up in the mountains with a beautifull view. The old cells for the nuns are grouped into very pleasant rooms. The restaurant is quite expensive, but the food is very good. Great hospitality in an atmosphere that pleases both tourists and business travellers.
