Some of the nicest people you will ever meet run this beautiful little hotel. Elio and Stefania were willing to help in any way they could to ensure our stay was excellent. The communication prior to the trip was very helpful and they also recommended a cooking class at an Agriturismo close to the hotel. The class was fantastic. Each morning, Elio recommended towns to visit and activities, which made our time in Tuscany both relaxing and fun. One thing I must talk about is the breakfasts. As I am sure you will read over and over again, the breakfast each morning was amazing. Course after course of pastries, yogurt, bread/cheese/meat, coffee of your choice, and the amazing works of art fruit plates. Elio and Stefania live with their family on the second floor. You wouldn’t even know they are there. As soon as you ring the service bell you would here Elio or Stefania rushing downstairs to assist you in any way.
Breakfast is something we looked forward to everyday
Room lots of space and clean
Location close enough to the sights of Tuscany but not in a tourist area
We were in room #1, which is the corner of the building beside the road. I am not sure if the street noise was better in other rooms but it could be a little loud at times.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a beautiful experience away from the hustle of the cities. The food was amazing and it is only a short drive from Firenze, about 1 hour. San Gimignano was also just a short distance away where you can stroll through an old historic town with beautiful shops and restaurants. You need a car while here… I am sure the buses could get your around however, to enjoy your time here… rent a car.
