This small 4 star hotel is the culmination of a dream of two long-time partners: Silvano and Ferdinando. They are dedicated to making your stay perfect. From the romantic entrance to the beautiful grounds and pool, to the comfortable rooms and common areas, the physical space could not be better.
Breakfast is delicious and generous, and their restaurant, which only serves in the evening, is the best in the area. I had an old Tuscan dish, called Il Peposa, which I had never encountered before. The recipe dates back to the Renaissance, and the dish is a braised peppered beef served with a creamy potato puree. I started with a hand-made ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach, coated in sage butter. Silky! My wife had the best papperadelle with cinghialle. Generally this dish is just flavored with cinghialle, but this had big chunks of meat. Delicioso!
The most important thing to stress, however, is that Silvano and Ferdinando will do everything in their power to make you happy. Their service is really special!
And who can forget Zorro, their pet donkey? We were told that a previous guest even left him a tip!
