Firstly let me say we loved this place and would recommend it. The position is magical, like being on the bridge of a ship with magnificent views in every direction. The rooms are lovely, we had a first floor suite, and the food is excellent. The problem is a lack of attention to service detail. It's not unfriendly at all,... More

My husband surprised me with this hotel as a little get away during our vacation and we were both amazed. We were visiting my family in a nearby town about an hour away and he arranged for us to getaway, for a few nights. Gorgeous panoramic views, amazing food, staff goes above and beyond. Customer service is not necessarily Italy's... More

We had a fantastic time staying at this wonderful hotel for our honeymoon. It is set on a hilltop in the glorious Tuscan countryside, which gives stunning 360 views. You can see Swifts flying overhead through the glass roof in the main lobby, where breakfast is enjoyed in the mornings. Enjoyed being the key word…one of the best aspects of... More

I stayed here five nights on an anniversary trip with my wife. Our room was fantastic - the bed not as plush as we might have liked, but still very comfortable. The bathroom was large and well appointed. We had a small sitting area outside overlooking gorgeous Tuscan hills. Service was very friendly and warm. We used the pool and... More

My husband and I had been guests here 5 years ago, and the hotel has been extended and upgraded. We enjoyed our stay, but found the service could have been better. The Gourmet Restaurant did not have enough waiters, and although we wanted another glass of wine, we were not asked or approached. Waiters were always busy elsewhere, while the... More

We just stayed here for a night on our tour of Tuscany and enjoyed the unique resort with the thermal swimming pools and fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. Originally a fortress, the property retains much of it's character while renovated to a high level of comfort and modernity. The decor is unusual and interesting. The rooms are luxurious and...

I was wishing that I had stayed at this property after driving by and admiring the beautiful situation of this 11th century fortress. . . The presence was seductive. Hence, I decided to try their Settimo Senso Restaurant (which I had found in a Michelin listing). I reserved a table for my family, overlooking the stunning Tuscan hillside. The view... More
