We've just returned after spending 3 nights at villa cheli. The hotel itself is lovely and our room was spotlessly clean. The room itself was quite big however the bathroom and shower cubicle were very small. A bonus was having a fridge in the room which was great for drinks in the 32 degree days. I was a little put off by the noisy busy road when we first arrived as I had wanted a tranquil countryside relaxing few days. The road is about 500 yards down the nice long driveway however the traffic never stops!! Even after 10pm it was still very noisy and busy from our room at the top of the hotel. However - at the back of the hotel the pool area is walled and I couldn't hear the road at all so I was happy again. The pool area is very nice and the pool itself is quite big.
Breakfast was the usual continental - cereals, bread with a toaster and jams, honey etc. there were also croissants, ham, cheese, pain au chocolat, juice, coffee etc. we only ever ate outside in the lovely forecourt area so I don't know what indoors was like. The restaurant in the evenings was okay although we only ate their once and we were still full from lunch in pisa.
Pisa is around 10-15 mins drive away. Lucca is about 10 mins and was a much nicer place to visit than Pisa, don't miss it. Florence was around 50 mins drive away. There was a bus stop outside the hotel but I'm not sure about times etc. one down side was having nowhere to go for a walk. The hotel was surrounded by private land and there was no real footpath along the very busy road so we had the drive everywhere.
Overall a lovely clean, quiet hotel perfect for our 3 day Tuscany visit.
