“fine country house hotel with stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely romantic weekend at this hotel. It is a large country house hotel a little off the beaten track between Siena and Arezzo. It is a little tricky to find, mainly due to the lack of signposting on approach, but worth the effort. We had the Ambra bedroom which was tastefully decorated in traditional Italian style. The view from our spacious bedroom was typical Tuscan picture postcard. The hotel was elegant and refined. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was large but only had a shower. The lighting was romantic but a little on the dim side for application of makeup! The breakfast was a continental style buffet which was nice, rather than anything special. Overall we both loved our stay here. We wanted a romantic break and this certainly fitted the bill. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: when booking we asked for a good view and certainly got one. Any of the rooms on the top floor would...

La Perla and the gracious family who owns it, is truly a hidden gem. Most of the information available on the property is in Italian and easy to overlook if you dont speak the language. However, somehow we found it, and now, after two weeks in Italy, with stays in several extraordinary five star hotels, the humble La Perla Luxury Resort out-classed them all!

The historical villa has been recently renovated leaving a feeling of grand yet simple elegance. Rarely have I experienced such a pleasant combination of tranquility and style. Stunning views of the Chianti countryside greet you from every guest room window. Large, country guest house rooms have spacious and modern baths. Extraordinary frescos and elaborate ceiling painting leave the feeling of a noble life in the countryside circa 17th century.

Fine china and white table cloths embellish a breakfast of freshly picked fruit, fine sliced parma and salami, hot pastries and other delicacies. A full kitchen and on site chef produce gourmet lunches and dinners at reasonable prices. Fresh fish brought in from the coast daily is a specialty.

But, what impressed me most of all, is the family who own and operate La Perla. Every need was expertly and graciously attended to. On the first day of our stay they spent hours fighting the Rome airport bureaucracy to get our delayed luggage straightened out. They even sent someone more than two hours back to Rome to personally collect it.

For more than 30 years, my wife and I have both travelled and lived around the world and I cannot recall a better lodging experience, and at a value level that I'm tempted to keep secret. Perhaps the Tuscan atmosphere drew us here, but La Perla and the Centini family will be the cause for our return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lungo la via del Chianti, in un’antica villa del 1500 resa sapientemente unica, ha sede La Perla di Sestano Luxury Resort, la struttura si trova nel comune di Castelnuovo Berardenga, nel cuore del Chianti Senese. La località di Sestano è documentata come villaggio fin dal 867 d.c. L’epoca di edificazione della villa non è certa, presumibilmente essa nasce come casale nella seconda metà del XV sec e precede la Ragnaia di impianto del cinquecento, già nel 1676 il podere di Sestano era iscritto agli eredi di Armenio Petrucci. La trasformazione dell’edificio attuale, risale alla prima metà del 700 e a questo periodo è riconducibile l’organizzazione degli spazi in forma unitaria e la sistemazione della corte interna. In un disegno del pittore Romagnoli, risalente al 1830, la Villa di Sestano è rappresentata in una forma simile all’attuale. ... more   less
