Hotel Sole is about a 10-minute walk into the historical centre of Volterra, with 2 substantial hills en route. We were there for the Andrea Bocelli concert, and the hotel was full. Even though the booking agent had booked us in for the wrong dates, Francesco, the owner and manager, sorted us out, no problem. Actually that seemed to be a mantra of his. Whether someone needed a ride to the bus station or into town, or a snack in the middle of the day, he was always happy to oblige. The breakfast buffet is a sight to behold, with lots of delicious cakes and cookies, over and above the usual fare. The wifi in the room was a bit iffy, but ok if we left the door open, and you can hear your neighbors in the hotel quite easily, but we didn't lose any sleep over this. No frills but 5 stars for Francesco. We really enjoyed our stay.
