Villa Tavolese is in a lovely setting, high in the Tuscan hills with fantastic views.We had a very spacious room that overlooked the surrounding area for miles. Large bathroom with a seperate shower cubicle. The hotel has 16 bedrooms, but during our 5 day stay, there were not many other clients, hence we had the pool to ourselves. It is centrally located and Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, and Florence are all within easy reach. There are 2 restarants in the village but we drove to Barberino val d'elsa, ten minutes away and ate in a couple of restaurants there which were good. Whilst the hotel has a restaurant, it was not open for dinner during our stay. We were never given a reason. Breakfast is basically Continental and self service.
