I actually ended up at Villa Sonnino as I was looking for a hotel in Pisa. This hotel is located mid way between Pisa and Florence in San Miniato and is very close to the highway. The hotel-Restaurant offers probably the best value for the money I have found in a long time. It is located in an old but immaculately restored house and is just amazing. room are large for European standards, totally renovated and gorgeous. Real high speed internet is free. The restaurant food is fantastic but the price make it even more appealing. We stayed for 2 nights in a luxury room, had 2 great breakfasts and 2 sumptuous full course diners with wine. Price for everything came to $ 400, an amazing price considering the quality of the room and the food served.
I never regretted having booked ''so'' far from Florence and would have gladly stayed an extra day if I had been able to. Having booked in Florence, we reluctantly had to move on.
If you are visiting Pisa or Florence and have a car, do not hesitate to book this place , and enjoy the luxury and quietness. Make sure to stay for dinner.
Pisa is 30 minutes west, Florence 25 minutes East on the highway.
