Sant'egle is a great place to spend a weekend. I cannot remember a more relaxing short break. Erika and Alessandro are fantastic and the business they have built is a model for eco-tourism. They could not have been more welcoming nor friendly. Good advice and friendly chat. The rooms are really nicely decorated and our bed was one of the most comfortable we ever slept in. The food on Saturday evening was really delicious, 'kilometre zero' at its very best. Aperitivi are served before the meal in the lovely grounds, watching the sun set as the sheep are herded back to their fields for the night. Just down the road is the Sorano thermal baths where you can while away an afternoon, sunbathe, and have various beauty treatments should you wish. Pittigliano, the nearby town, is picturesque and the antidote to the over-touristy Tuscan circuit. There is a little shop at the agroturismo where you can buy home-grown produce. A final lovely touch was a gift to us of a bottle of home made beer to help celebrate our forthcoming nuptials. A great place where we will stay again and where we will encourage friends to try. Thanks
