We loved Hotel Molino d'Era in Volterra, and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is family run with a passion for perfection. We were pleased to note that the locals frequent the bar and restaurant, which serves beautiful food at reasonable prices. The hotel is set in a lovely rural environment beside a river. The entire hotel feels spacious and light. The rooms are also spacious and nicely furnished. This was a great base to explore the beautiful nearby Tuscan towns of Volterra and San Gimignano, to name but two. There was really nothing about this place that we didn't like. We left there wanting to move to Tuscany! You would need to have a car to stay here, as it wasn't close to public transport.
