This is a beautiful little B&B (just 2 rooms) off the beaten track in Tuscany. If you want to experience some true Tuscan hospitality, this is the place to go. This B&B is situated in Castelnuovo, a little village between Volterra and Massa Marittima. Our room was newly renovated and beautifully furbished. What makes this place special is it’s owner Roberta. Not only is she backing delicious cakes for breakfast, she also speaks fluently English and is overall a perfect host. Castelnuovo is a very quiet little village and there is not a lot to do, but it is close to some beautiful art cities like Volterra and Massa Marittima and the seaside is also not far. For us, this was the perfect place to relax. Unfortunately we only stayed for a weekend but hopefully will be back soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pagliaore is a traditional Tuscan country house dating back to the 1600s, located on a hilltop that rises 650 metres above sea-level and is surrounded by refreshing and sweet-smelling chestnut groves. The vast rooms are furnished with great care and attention to detail, using period furniture and elements of modern design, tasteful decorative elements and elegant linens. Genuine hospitality, manifested in warm welcomes (helped by our knowledge of several languages) and in many other ways, is very important to us: the doors of our home are open to you as special guests, and not anonymous tourists simply passing through. We hope that you will cherish your time in Tuscany, not only for its magnificent landscapes, but also for its people. Perfect for relaxing, out-of-the-ordinary holidays. ... more less
