The town is picturesque and sleepy but the hotel is out of this world. The decor is immaculate, both respectful of the building's historical significance and elegantly modern. The rooms were lovely, with large cozy beds and fantastic high tech bathrooms. The dining here is truly a magical experience and the staff are unbelievably helpful. When we arrived everyone pitched in to welcome us, the bus boy was off so the chef took our luggage to our rooms. This is the kind of atmosphere you will find nowhere else, this helpful taking care of that goes beyond staff and becomes friend-like hospitality. In the heart of this all there is Laura, the concierge who is everywhere. She was bussing tables, bringing out morning coffee and receiving a shipment of fine wines for the cellar. We were so spoilt at Palazzo Righini, everywhere else we stayed on our tour of Italy and France seemed to be lacking that little extra something. We went out of our way to stay here twice for the service and the food were the best we encountered in Italy.
