I spent 10 days travelling around Italy and definitely, Le Macinaie was the best hotel I have stayed. It was very clean with a comfortable room and with a great breakfast. The location is perfect if you are travelling by car. Also, the hotel's staff were very helpful during my stay. Thanks to Francesco, to Claudio and the rest of their team.

Thanks to Enrico, Francesco and Giorgio and the rest of the staff who work so hard to give the guests the feeling that you are special and deserve special treatment. The fact is that this is the feeling most guests are having when coming to this hotel in the middle of the beautiful woods of Monte Amiata. I never had better dinners, thanks to Giorgio who runs the kitchen together with Claudia and others.
After long days on the bike, exploring the many historic villages on the foot of Monte Amiata and enjoying the special Tuscan nature, it was like coming to Paradise to come up to Le Macinaie, breathing fresh air, calm down in the spa and enjoy wonderful dinners.
I can definitely advice this hotel for travellers who want to spend days in Southern Tuscany hiking or biking or doing other sorts of activities, and also for others who want to spend lazy days in the middle of silence in calm surroundings.

We stayed four days and wish it could have been longer. The initial booking arrangements and communication with Francesco was excellent. When we showed up at the door after a long day of driving, he was waiting for us and quickly checked us in, offered to carry our bags and was waiting to pour us a drink at the bar. The hotel was full for one night, partially booked for two and we were the only guests for one night. The service remained stellar throughout.

We had a 'panorama' room with a full queen bed (not 2 twins pushed together). The room was very clean we had no problem with sounds from other rooms or the road. The room is a bit smallish but does have a full sized closet, nightstands and a nice desk and chair. The bathroom is the largest we encountered in Italy with a nice sized shower and a door to the balcony. A bit odd having a balcony off the bathroom but it worked well since my wife enjoys rising early and reading on the patio chair before I get up. The windows and patio face south to enjoy the sun.

We had pre-arranged a cooking class and it was fantastic. Enrico arranged for the chef to cook the pasta we had created for the evening dinner. All the meals we had were fantastic with most ingredients sourced locally. The mushroom soup was made from mushrooms picked within 300 meters of the hotel. Very thick and a meal in itself. There is also a good sized salad and dessert bar if you chose. That was great as it gave us a chance to try some of the cold meats and cheeses that we normally would not order.

There was a full selection for breakfast. Everything including meats, bread, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, pastries, pies, fresh fruit, juice, coffee... you could not want anything more.

In the evening, they offer both a la carte as well as a fixed price menu, which is great. That gives you the choice of having either a full meal or less if you are not so hungry. I thought the prices were very fair, considering that the prices include taxes and service.

The hotel is right at the base of a ski slope which would be great in the winter. We walked through many of the trails on the slopes of Mt. Amiata which was very colourful and peaceful. Plenty of opportunities for hiking, biking, painting, etc.

While we were there, Francesco encouraged us to go to two local towns that were having mushroom and chestnut festivals. That turned into a full day of discovery on it's own. All the staff are very knowledgeable and proud of the area.

The only downside is that this hotel is pretty much in the middle of nowhere IF you want to have other restaurants, stores, etc. nearby. We booked this and loved it for the peace, quiet and tranquility of the entire area. It's so nice to be away from tourist traps when you are visiting Italy and enjoy the serenity of the countryside.

Room Tip: Ask for a south facing room if available. They do get fully booked at times with bike or hiking tour...

Dear Guests,

Thank you so much for your review. Outstanding!

Are you sure that you spent 4 days in our refurbished old chestnut mill on the top of the unknown Tuscan’s Volcano, Monte Amiata?

We absolutely feel honoured and proud about your travel experience at Le Macinaie.

Now we are focused on being perfect, even if we are aware that we learn more from our mistakes than from our success.

Achieving Excellence is our dream and you are giving our dream their wings to fly!

A big Italian hug

Francesco

It was a pure delight to come back to Le Macinaie. My first visit to this hotel was 3 years ago and I wasn't disappointed. Who couldn't love this place in any season!! I love the fall / autumn (doesn't matter where you come from) ... it will be your home away from home too.

The staff are friendly and always willing to assist when you have a query. Thank you Francesco and Enrico for being the people you are and making our holidays a dream to remember - always. You welcomed us into your hearts and vice versa. It was like visiting our family again (although not related by blood but certainly by friendship).

Francesco arranged our requested itinerary to Pienza, Orvieto and Cortona. Our driver Marco and guide Elisabetta were excellent.

Our first time here we did the pasta making course ... loads of fun. It was the first time to try tagliatelle cake ... oh we had died and gone to heaven. Never in all my travels have I heard of this cake. Took me 3 years to try it again ... d e v i n e.

The food here is plentiful and delicious. I had to say could we halve the portions as I stuggled to finish the food on the plate. Trust me you will not starve.

Ciao until another visit. Manuela Adelaide South Australia
