This inn is the 'sister' to Salvatore Farragamo's villa about 3 miles away. We were told it was owned and lived in by the King of Italy. My husband loved the quiet, remote location in Tuscany. Definitely that wine country feel. My personal impression was it was sterile, sparsely furnished (the sofa in our suite was hard and uncomfortable), and not a cozy destination. We paid for an upgraded room (Michaelangelo) because it had a fireplace, but then was told when we arrived that we needed to pay another fee for the fireplace to be lit. The suite was definitely spaceious except for the bathroom which was adequate. Restaurant recommendations were very good and staff was friendly. Cold breakfast included. Go to wine tasting at Il Borro and the Frangipanni Giorgami handbag factory. Remember siestas begin at 1:30 pm and end about 4:30 pm. Can't access places at that time.
