This beautiful place overlooking the countryside and the vineyards of Chianti was probably the highlight of our drive through Tuscany and the Emilia-Romagna. The setting is gorgeous, the rooms a delight and the grounds immaculate. Though we didn't use it, the swimming pool was a hit with many of the other guests. Our first evening started with a drink in possibly the quaintest cocktail lounge imaginable...pour it yourself (on the honor system) and enjoy the surroundings either inside or outdoors. We went from there to dinner on the terrace of the hotel's own restaurant. Great food that would be worth a trip by itself! Here we also met our lovely hosts, the owners of this property that has been in the Della Robbia family since the renaissance. The next morning the hotel provided several different pre-printed driving and walking tours, all of different lengths and distances. We chose one and enjoyed a magnificent day on the back roads of Chianti. What did we like the best? Hard to choose between the beauty of the place and the hospitality of the owners and staff. The only slight negative was that the first morning, breakfast on the restaurant's terrace where we had eaten dinner the night before was frequented by lots of bees that made the meal somewhat of a challenge. Nevertheless, we were indeed sad to leave this place and will make a point to go back.
