We had a great trip to this hotel. The staff were very friendly and on arrival gave us a complimentary room upgrade, so we had a lovely view of the chianti wine region. The food was absolutely amazing.. The breakfast was the best I ahd in Italy, and the dinner was fantastic. The whole stay was just brilliant. It is definitely worth paying slightly more to stay in a hotel of this quality (as it is definitely not cheap). Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer.
