We spent a total of 5 nights here. We had only intended to stay 1 night as we were touring Tuscany, however we were so impressed we stayed 3 nights at the beginning of our tour and a further 2 nights to end our holiday. The hotel is located about 15 minutes drive south of the vibrant city of Siena in a rural area. There is a connection to the main SR2 about 200 metres away which is convenient for getting you to the tourist attractions in both central and southern Tuscany if your in a hurry. The main road is a bit busy during the day but the double glazed windows (with shutters) prevent any traffic noise disturbing you, at night the traffic is non existent and we slept well. Upper floor rooms are accessed by elevator or stairs. Rooms are spacious, very clean and excellently maintained. Every facility in the rooms actually worked as it should and if you travel a lot you will know what I mean when I highlight this. Breakfast is good quality with plenty of choice. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel where you can get an excellent evening meal at average price. There is a secured car park for your vehicle so if you don't want to lug you suitcases around they will be relatively safe in your vehicle. If your a night owl, your bedroom door pass operates for both the car park gate and hotel entrance if you return after 11.00 pm, so no worrying about the time if your enjoying the evening. The general ambience is one of peace and relaxation which Riccardo and his staff work hard to maintain. We were well looked after by everybody, given excellent advice on the best places to go and how to get there via the most interesting routes. We returned for an extra two nights and as they say actions speak louder than words! Highly recommended!!
