I warmly advise Podere Spedalone. It's a fantastic place, here's why:
Accomodation: warm, comfortable, elegant in rustic country style, all appliances new and perfectly working, suitable for travellers accustomed to four-star level in international hotels
Service: Friendly, warm, caring. Everyone will know your first name and treat you as a valued guest. From lighting the fireplace for you, to bringing you a taste of home-made liquor, everything will be taken care of.
People: The customers are both italian and international, couples or small groups, it seems like people with more than average culture who value the importance of finding such a haven and spending a relaxing time, dinners are served at common tables and are very pleasant.
Food and beverages: fantastic. Food is a full-immersion experience. Guests are involved (if they want) in the preparation of home-made pastas, olive oil tastings, and other activities. The food is traditional specialties, cooked on the spot with produce from the land and animals from the Podere itself. Breakfasts and dinners are plentiful.
Location: Stunning, Beautiful. The old country house, the surrounding nature and nearby towns are all amazing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Podere Spedalone dates back to the 8th century, when it was a place of shelter for pilgrims bound for Rome, situated as it is on the Via Francigena, or Frankish Route. It nestles, perfectly at ease, among the Crete Senesi and, after strictly conservational restoration, begun in 2004 and completed in 2006, it is now the ideal spot for anyone wishing to refresh spirit, senses, mind and body. ... more less
