“Above and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

What a wonderful hotel. It can't be bettered and the service from Elio and his charming wife is above and beyond that of any other hotel owner we have come across. Our room was spotlessly clean with a modern bathroom and lovely countryside views from the window. The room was serviced daily and even our clothes which had been left on a chair neatly folded and put in the wardrobe.. The breakfast is fantastic. Far too much but we're not complaining! There was yoghurt, cereals, bread, local cheese and ham, a little hot savoury, for example a tomato bruschetta, two types of delicious home made cake and a beautiful plate of sliced fruit. Elio recommended a lovely country restaurant just a short drive away and it was so good we ate there twice. This was a good base for us to visit San Gimignano just 6 kilometers away and also Sienna. We went to Florence on the train from Certaldo where there is easy parking beside the station. This is a charming hotel with some nice little outside areas of seating. The star of the show is Elio who is so kind and helpful.

Elio and Stefania were the most warm and friendly innkeepers that I have encountered. They gave terrific restaurant and vineyard recommendations, which was very important because it made this visit to Tuscany better than my last (last time I was obviously at the wrong hotel). The room was spacious, light and airy. The view from the hotel was just gorgeous and the rooms were so quiet. The breakfast was fantastic - Elio goes all out to make cakes and a beautiful fruit salad. On our last day, we were leaving before breakfast and Elio came down a few minutes early just to make sure that we had a full breakfast before we took off. Very thoughtful and happy people! This will be where we stay on our next visit to Tuscany.

A room with nice smell of flowers. A colorful and tastful homemade breakfast. A caring attention to small things like hanging our sweaters under sun so it smell very nice. A surprised birthday cake on a table when we came back at night. Thank you Stefania and Elio. We wish to come back someday :)

My family and I spent 4 nights at the Vecchio Asilo, which is run by Elio and his wife - The Vecchio asilo, and its owners, really deserve all the praise they have received so far - Our stay was perfect and we will definately be back again as soon as we can -

Stayed 2 nights as home base for exploring the region. Beautiful small inn and our room and bed was wonderful. Elio couldn't be more welcoming and accommodating and he serves the best, most generous breakfast possible (he happens to be a fruit plate artist). We really appreciated his knowledge of the area and recommendations. Wine on the terrace overlooking the valey Highly recommended.

We stayed here one night on our way to Florence. Elio and Stefania welcomed us with genuine warmth, and Elio gave us excellent recommendations for dinner in San Gimignano and wine tours in the area. The morning we had breakfast, Elio made us a feast that left us satisfied until dinner! We highly recommend you stay with Elio and Stefania if you are in the area.
