We have just returned from our second stay in this wonderful hotel. We had three nights there last year and just had to go back again to prove we hadn't been dreaming. This time it was better still as I had arranged a surprise for my wife..our grown up family were joining us and it took a lot of organising. The hotel were amazing in joining in the subterfuge and everything worked out prefectly. Montalcino is a dlightful little hill town and the hotel is perfectly placed, just inside the walls, with some lovely restaurants a short walk away. The hotel has private parking which is a bonus as that is not always the case in some of these Tuscan hill towns. Everything about the place is first class.
