As always luck had a hand in us chosing this hotel, and we were pleasantly surprised with what we found. Hiring a car from Pisa airport, we drove down and found the hotel less than a hour away. It proved to be a good location from which to exploreTuscany (and we certainly exploited that by exploring Volterra, Sienna and Florence and the coast). The countryside was exactly how we imagined it would be, and we got what we felt was a good mix of local cuisine, custom, friendliness, history and climate. The hotel is about 10 years old but has the look of a traditional Tuscan property. We were greeted in a pleasant manner and our family room was clean and tidy with good size beds, air con, towels and a mini fridge, which was vital as the temperatures hit the low to mid 30's. We had originally booked B&B but switched to half-board as this was very reasonably priced. The food was good and consisted of continental breakfast and a 4 course dinner. Our waitress Maria Luisa, was brilliant and informative and very patient with us as we asked many questions. It has a lovely pool with bar. Some evenings entertainment was laid on, which everyone seemed to enjoy. The hotel also has a tennis court, spa and gym. Mario, the Hotel Manager was friendly and again helpful and nothing seemed to much trouble. Everyone seemed to work very hard at this hotel. We were the only English family there for most of our stay - but that added to the experience. We would recommended this hotel without hestitation and enjoyed our stay immensely.
