Elio and his family are the most caring people that we have ever met in the hospitality industry. Everything he does is to make your stay better and please his guests. He leaves nothing undone, whether it is the sparkling clean glasses in the room or the most beautiful breakfast that is possible.
The hotel is spotless.
Being about 6 K from San Gimignano along a very easy route gets you away from the crowds but if you want a dinner there it only takes minutes to go in and if as Elio suggests you go after the crowds leave you have the town to yourself. A great beautiful hotel to stay in in Tuscany and I would stay there again any day
