If you ever wanted to know the difference between a hotel and a B&B, this is the perfect example. Antoinetta lives and breathes for Astieto - from the family style warmth she gives and the home cooked breakfasts every morning, I can guarantee you will never want to leave! As an added bonus, you will fall in love with her family and adorable pets as well. The history behind this place is fascinating, and Antoinetta is more than happy to recommend the best places to visit and eat in the area. The grounds this B&B are on will take your breath away - I have never experienced untouched natural beauty like this before. The next time my family and I decide to visit Tuscany, we will be at Astieto. After the wonderful experience we had, nowhere else will even be up for consideration!!!
