We just spent about four weeks in one of the agroturismo apartments operated by Palazzo Squarcialupi. It was heaven on earth, even though we only had four days without rain while we were there. By renting one of these lovely and roomy apartments, you get the benefits of the hotel with a lot more privacy and room to stretch out. The hotel staff are all delightful and helpful -- they made reservations for us and volunteered discount cards to us. We felt like part of the family by the time we left. We could also use the hotel spa and sit in the bar or sala and use their wifi, free of charge. I highly recommend staying here. You will need a car if you rent one of the apartments, because it's about 1 km to the village of Castellina. But you really ought to have a car anyway so you can drive to nearby towns and villages and experience the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, which is breathtakingly beautiful.
