We very much enjoyed our stay in Tenuta la Lupa: quite and picturesque Tuscan province, excellent food and wine, amazing travel opportunities (just make sure you have a car!).
The hotel is family-managed: Fabio (also a chef of the restaurant), Vincenza and Fabio's parents, all the hosts were very friendly and ready to help. Special thanks for arranging a small birthday party for our daughter - a nice birthday cake with candles and 'happy birthday' song in Italian from all guests in the restaurant made her absolutely happy!
The hotel has its own swimming pool, very large and clean and, what was also pleasant, far not so overcrowded as the beach. The closest beach (famous Spiaggi Biance) is approx. 10 km, there is regular bus communication, but definitely the car is
a must to enjoy the hotel surroundings. We have visited the neaby Castellina Marittima, Rosignano Marittima and Castiglioncello, amazing medieval towns of Volterra and San Gimigniano are within 50 and 80 km respectively. The same distance is to Pisa and Lucca. Just make sure you choose proper routes - you will not be able to fully enjoy Tuscany hills with all their olive trees, vineyards and cypresses from a highway. To summarize, Tenuta la Lupa is a very good place to see and enjoy Tuscany in its heart
