This wine resort will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We traveled there for 3 days/nights on our honeymoon and of all the places in France and Italy we went, this was by far our favorite. You cannot put your finger on it, it is just so special. From pulling up the long driveway and having the staff greet you outside, the decor, the amazing American style plush beds (the only place of all the 4-5 star places we stayed to have a great bed!), the wine tour, the food, the pool, or relaxing in the large beautifully decorated common area. The service and staff here are 5 star (and speak fluent English), and the manager Laura goes out of her way to ensure you are having the best time while there. They have have an amazing chef but there are also fun places to go out to eat to enjoy authentic food. This area is off the tourist track so you really get to soak up the culture. Its a small remote area, but there is plenty to do and explore. We took a few of the hotel's recommendations but our favorite was the 20 mile bike ride (it sounds long but it wasn't too hard) and exploring the area by bike, as well as horse back riding. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area or planning a trip to the Tuscany area. Its a MUST. We are buying the wine back in America and counting down the days to go back!
