Stayed for a couple of nights on my tour of Tuscany after reading positive reviews from other travellers. The staff was very non-intruding and speaks english well. The building itself is like taken out of a Tuscany postcard, located in the hillside with surrounding trees and the seductive mixture of oker paint and red bricks. Free wifi in the room,... More

Situated half an hour from Pisa Airport, this is the ideal place to stay and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. We arrived after having car problems on the Siena - Pisa autostrada, with a tyre puncture, and Cesare the Manger was wonderful. He made phone calls to help us, and was very professional in all he did., he was so kind.... More

Historical beautiful Villa in the Hills of San Miniato (Pisa). Excellent location either for country side than visiting cities like Florence (30 minutes), Pisa( 15 minutes)! The building is very beautiful with lots of rooms, halls that make you feel living in a castle. Restaurant is simply delicius! Taste the trufles (typical from Sam Miniato) specialities!

I was only there for an overnight for business. Did not get much of a change to explore the area but the views and ambiance are incredible. Hard to find. It is off Castel Vecchio look for the sings, up the unpaved road and there you will find this gem. Restaurant is good, rooms are ok, bathrooms are updated.

Service is excellent as the staff is very welcoming and remembered us from our honeymoon with a hug and a hello. We had a bottle of champagne in the room when we arrived, bottled water and a bottle of Villa Sonnino wine as we departed. The room was again large and accommodating with a beautiful view of the vineyards from... More

This hotel is amazingly well equipped, professionally managed and has amazing charm and feel of Italian Villa. Staff is extremely professional and hardworking. Since we arrived late, restaurant was open until 00:30. Food and wine were exceptional. Breakfast is not going to win any special award for variety and assortment, but again, it was very well organized and everything tasted... More

We visited Villa Sonnino after cancelling a reservation at a nearby hotel, which failed to meet up to our standards. We were impressed that upon arrival, we were greeted by a member of staff, who was clearly welcoming and willing to help us. Fortunately, the Villa had a room available and we were impressed by its quality (for the same... More

The villa is a delight and is very secluded and quiet - I can't quite put my finger on what is lacking because on the surface it is all there but there was a lack of atmosphere and warmth. The room was great and very very spacious ( spoilt by a tiny TV seemingly miles away) and with a modern... More

This hotel is a delight of past splendor of grand living of the wealthy Italian aristocracy. Villa complete with chapel and nice gardens for weddings. Located in lovely village between Florence and Pisa. The beds were great with no back pain in the morning, When we entered the room the hotel came compete with complimentary local wine as a bonus!...
