If you are driving and looking for a lovely location in an old remodeled villa, this could be great. but keep in mind, it is several miles from the nearest town facilities (tho it IS in a perfect location for day drives to most Tuscan sites). We were given a room on top floor with a small kitchenette and separate... More

Our restaurant “La Limonaia” serves local specialties and seasonal products prepared according to traditional recipes, capable of enhancing the local gastronomic heritage, for this reason are not offered main courses of fish. The breakfast service buffet (sweet and salty, hot and cold, light and... More

Spent 3 nights here in October, partly as an on line package deal. A beautiful building about three miles from the latest village, and places to eat and drink as this hotel's bar and restaurant were closed during our visit. I don't think you could call this a hotel as it only offered bed and breakfast. Surprised that what has... More

We stayed at the Villa San Filippo for 4 nights in September. I have never written a "disappointing" review before but feel that I cannot avoid it here if I am to be honest. We are not demanding but this place fell way short of our expectations. We were first given a dark room near the lift and had to... More

This hotel is difficult to give an overall rating. It is in a beautiful location, the Tuscan hillsides are all around you with its olive trees and fields of grape vines. The villa is beautiful as well and away from the noise of a city. The room we had for four nights was very spacious and clean, with a kitchenette.... More

Great hotel in a perfect location in the heart of Tuscany. Massive olympic pool (3 pools, actually) overlooking the beautiful area, perfect for watching the sunset while enjoying a bath :) All the staff were really kind and welcoming and the food in the restaurant was delicious (especially the typical Ragú!). Couldn't have expected more than that, I totally recommend... More

The Villa is a great retreat from the hordes in Florence, Siena, etc. You can spend a few days here regrouping. Originally a 11th century mansion/fortress it is now a large inn with a fantastic view of the rolling Tuscan Hills. A wonderful chef, who came and danced with some in our group. A large swimming pool was refreshing just... More

This is a beautiful location high on a hill in Tuscany. The service of the staff is exceptional. Because of the historic significance of the building, the rooms are all very different in size and configuration. The breakfast room serves a delicious meal daily that's included in the price. The on site restaurant is superb and the Chef is a... More
