We stayed at Il Cipressino for 9 or 10 nights and we loved it. There are only a few rooms so approx 20 people max can stay there and we never seen everyone at one time as other guests were sightseeing. A nice swimming pool with hills view, great service and a very good location if you travel by car. Not far from Florence, Siena, Volterra and other beautiful towns. Close to a supermarket and there are picnic tables outside the house you can use (owners ask to buy drinks from them but sometimes we had ours and it was not a problem). A few restaurants up the hill in the nearby town.
Peaceful if you just want to stay in and relax in the sun. We had a very nice room with a king size bed and a sofa, for the 2 of us it was more than enough. We would like come back there one day!
The owner speaks English, his wife not too much but there was no problems with the communication.
The only thing that was a suprise for us was that we had to pay in cash so it took as a few days to withdraw the whole amount.
