Trying to find the "perfect" hotel for our final stay in Italy after 10 days of touring, I selected this property. It might have worked if we weren't so very frustrated upon arrival. The source of our annoyance: we could NOT find this hotel. Without a street address and only location listed, our GPS could NOT determine where to send us. We stopped no less than 5 people: they all laughed while trying to provide broken English directions. It sits high atop a hill in its own remote location. While we saw one sign, it wasn't clear which direction to go to. Once there, be prepared to spend time as the grounds are lovely. Since Arezzo is miles away (translating to many many minutes because of the slow curves and steep terroir) you also won't want to leave once there to eat in town. And, forget about drinking in town and driving there. Too many hairpin curves and steep climbs. There is a fancy cave-like restaurant on property which also translates to high prices on food and wine compared to the city fare. But, with all that said, the hotel is lovely. The breakfast was one of the best. And, the experience of staying in a former monastary was thrilling. It was easy to see how one might have taken a spiritual journey. Unfortunately, the month of March isn't pool season but the pool was still beautiful. It would be a perfect place to honeymoon or get away from it all if you want a bit of downtime in a luxurious setting.
