Beautiful views, quaint property, delightful staff. They do everything very nicely here, for a place in a remote setting where you wouldn’t expect it. The man that seemingly did all the tasks at the property was very sweet, and even walked us to our room upon check in to show us the rose petals they had sprinkled on our bed in celebration of our 10-year anniversary. Our room’s bathroom was very updated (by far the nicest bathroom we had in 5 cities in Italy). From our balcony, we had an amazing view from our room overlooking the gorgeous, although not so useful, pool. Beyond the pool is the rolling countryside, and you can see San Gimignano on the hill in the distance. They did a surprisingly nice breakfast down by the pool, and our “all-tasks” man would even whip up a cappuccino for you upon request. Great little lounge area to relax with a Chianti after a day of walking castles, and it is about as quiet a place you will find in order to catch up on sleep for the next day’s events. They even have a small spa room, where you can choose from a menu of treatments. Don't expect to get a "couple's massage," however, since there is only one table. We look forward to visiting again!
