“Warm, comfortable, charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2006

We had an excellent experience here. Both Chiara, and Franchesca are warm hostesses, with Chiara being the relationship manager, and Franchesca the Chef. The villa was restored some years ago and is very up to date with lovely antiques, The girls even do a half day cooking class that was both interesting and fun. The food was excellent with wide use of fresh local produce.

The location is central to Florence, and Pisa with easy access to all the towns in the area by car or rail. The Villa is in the countryside north of Pistoia and not hard to find. However, the last mile is up hill on a narrow road that is often one lane (Down hill trafic seems to get the right of way, and there a few blind corners that you want to beep your horn at while approaching)

We'd gladly stay here again, as it is very much like staying with friends. Excellent english spoken as well.

I first stayed at the villa Vannini in 1992 after selecting it from a small hotel guide book. It proved to be an exceptional hotel, which although idiosyncratic in many ways became the epitome of what a good family run hotel should be. Whenever during the year I wished to be elsewhere, the Vannini would always be my first choice of location for pure isolation and relaxation. Although minor changes always took place between visits the hotel maintained its position as my number one, without hesitation. Excellent food, wine, rooms and service combined with what always seemed far too small a bill made the hotel a joy to stay at. I returned in 2005 to find the hotel under new management, and although still a real gem, had become little more than a restaurant with rooms. So much attention was payed to the production of the evenings A la Carte menu that basic expectations of hospitality fell by the wayside. Twice finding myself locked out during the day whilst food was 'sourced'and finding any form of terrace service difficult whilst the meal was prepared from lunchtime onwards. For the first time I felt that I was 'in the way' as a guest, and as such shall not be returning in the near future. The hotel is still exceptional in many ways, but if an evening meal is not the sole focus of your life possibly best avoided.
