“way beyond expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This small inn is on top of a large hill with the most beautiful 270 degree view spread before you, rolling hills, woods, fields, villages. The owners, Brian and Antonella are extraordinary hosts, low-key, very knowledgeable, generous. This is a jewel in the heart of northern Italy--a bit hidden--but as I see others have said, our three day stay was the most peaceful of our month long trip.

Room Tip: all the rooms are lovely and have views, ask for advice from the owner.

This was the most peaceful week we can remember spending. The hosts -- Brian and Antonella -- were gracious, helpful, accommodating and warm. The views at sunset were almost too good to be believable.. If you don't know the territory, it's a challenge to find the property after you leave the Autostrade on the way here, but it was so worth it. Having a kitchen is a super-bonus. Special kudos to Antonella for going out of her way to help us when we developed some minor car trouble. We spent time in Citta della Pieve, Montepulciano, Chiusi and Pienza, all of which were special, but the most special was this unforgettable place. (The property also is set up to be a home base for retreats -- dance, photography, Buddhism, yoga. We were here on our own, but can imagine what a great site this must be for a group program).
