My husband and I stayed at this hotel a couple of years back as part of a walking holiday with Headwater holidays. We walked from another superb hotel (Il Trebbiola) to Collefertile and I remember coming into a clearing and seeing it on the other side of the mountain - it is beautiful! We turned up just as dinner was being served and a waitress offered us a seat inside but as we had been walking all day and it was a glorious day, we chose to eat outside. She brought us slightly chilled red wine and a huge tray full of fresh pasta in a wild boar sauce - apologising that the chef thought there were three in our party. Needless to say, we finished the lot.
The rooms are comfortable with great views and the infinity pool is simply amazing - I challenge anyone to find better views; I spent hours in there. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food is divine! They even organised for me to go horseriding and took me there free of charge.
It is very isolated and you do need a car to get around but it's a fantastic place and I would certainly recommend it. The following year we got married in Florence and we retraced our walk to this hotel, to meet my parents there for lunch. This time there was a thundestorm and we turned up soaking wet. However, in true Collefertile style, we were met with smiles and great food and my parents (who are very hard to please) loved it too! If you want a real taste of the Tuscan countryside and don't give up half way up the very long drive - then you will be met with a real treat. It's also very popular with the locals which says it all!
