We stayed here for one night as it was the nearest location to a function we were going to in another town but this town did appear pretty and somewhere worth exploring. We got the fabulous tower room (which looking at their website is I think La Stanza di Francesco di Giorgio) and it is just gorgeous. Huge room and huge bed with the quintessential view of the Tuscan countryside out of the window. Very romantic. Small but well appointed bathroom. There is also a quaint English style garden across a laneway which is a pleasant spot to enjoy the sun. No swimming pool though (which is listed as an amenity on some of the booking websites) but a large Jacuzzi. Breakfast could be better – very standard and not making use of local produce. Unfortunately there is no outside terrace on which to eat it. The reception area is untidy which creates a rather bad impression on arrival. However I would return.
