Hotel Le Macinaie is the ideal place to stay to discover the forested mountain part of Tuscany that most tourists do not ever see. My daughter and I stayed there, and all prior reviews reporting "great food" and "attentive service" are true and accurate.
There are loads of outside activities to partake in via Le Macinaie. We rented bikes and rode to the top of Mount Amiata. Along the way, I saw my very first Porcini hunters!
