I would give Hotel Vecchio Asilo a hearty thumbs up for those travellers who, after a busy day of driving and exploring new places, crave the peace and quiet of ‘home’ because that is the atmosphere you will enjoy here - a home from home. For various reasons we travelled to Tuscany at a time we would normally have avoided (June/July). Knowing that this was the peak of tourist season, we deliberately sought out accommodation that would provide a retreat from the bustle of our travel schedule. Hotel Vecchio Asilo lived up to our expectations. Each day we would return to our hilltop haven and enjoy a bottle of wine on the terrace watching the sunset. It was a time to reflect on the day and the splendors of what we had seen.
The manager, Elio, assisted by his wife Stefania deserves special mention. Each morning we were served a delicious breakfast of cereal, cheeses, bread, ham and coffee, but always accompanied by cakes made by Stefania. On the days we had an early start, Elio would put together a simple breakfast that we could eat before we left. He was a source of many excellent restaurant suggestions as well as ideas for ‘off the beaten path’ places to visit.
As we reflect on the three and a half weeks we spent away from home, this stay in the Tuscan hills ranks as one that will live on in our memories. We may never meet Elio and his family again, but his pride in the establishment, his quiet attention to detail and his commitment to providing a memorable stay will be our lasting memory of a newfound friend.
