We stayed here with another couple in July 2012. It was a really nice location with lovely views and a nice large swimming pool. Valeria, our host made breakfast every morning, freshly bought or cooked, breads, rolls, eggs, ham, yoghurt, fruit, cakes etc. For about a fiver, eat as much as you like. We ate out most evenings but found the car necessary as nobody fancied the quite long walk back up the hill. Our friends had the room, Mimosa, which had a nice patio area, which led straight onto the garden and pool. We used this for a barbeque, and evening drinks. The location was so very quiet even though most rooms were taken. It was ideal for visiting Florence, Siena and other Tuscan hilltop villages, we particularly liked Pienza.
