“Magical Toscana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The best place to discover Toscana. Excelent rooms, very nice atmosphere and an outstanding attention of their owners. Strongly recommended. At the center of Toscana you can go north to Florence (40km) or south to Siena (30km) travelling by car through small villages with beatiful sights. Breakfast was very good and having dinner was a great expirience.

This is a family owned hotel (11th century castle) and these folks are just so sweet and helpful.

Marco provided us good info and then even made phone calls for reservation.

His aunt cannot speak English but is ever smiling! When we reached, she was only one there so I tried communicating with her as we were starving-she managed to tell us restaurants are closed
3.30-7.00 pm so fixed us some ham/cheese sandwich with cakes and some cappuccino!

Every breakfast was very good too.

This castle is on top of a mountain and the place is very quite and serene.
We walked around the area and like restaurant Cassero for dinner one night a lot.

San gimignano is just 10 km away. Siena and Greve less than 30 min.

Lot of wineries and olive farms are close to the area

Tuscany is best explored in a car and GPS

Received a warm reception. The room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent, great variety of food. Besides making reservations to see the Uffizi, the staff was very helpful, and friendly. Great location to made side trips to Florence, San Gimignano, and Lucca.

A disappointment on arrival; we arrived tired and hungry only to be told the restaurant was closed for 7 days. So, we drove to Poggibonsi and searched for a restaurant. Room lacked TLC and is tired and worn. The window looks down onto a motorway so it has to be closed at night. The young night receptionist was extremely pleasant but the sisters (owners) spoke not English. Breakfast was average. The villa, in its day has been impressive but just doesn’t score as high as it could do or it might have done, despite its high position overlooking Poggibonsi.

Sevice at this hotel was very attentive and friendly,the room we were assigned was spacious and very comfortable.
Unless you are driving this hotel is somewhat isolated with limited access to dining areas,basically you have to eat at the hotel dining room which had a limited menu.What we ordered was less than average although we heard others being complimentary..maybe we just did not order what was good that evening.??
We had breakfast which was excellent.

The Hotel was great from check-in to check-out! The room was comfortable with a great view. The hotel was in great location to explore the surrounding area. I'm not sure I've ever met such kind staff. It was a truly great experience. I'd love to go back.
