Terre Gialle is a beautifully renovated building with very nice, well maintained grounds. The host was very kind and welcoming, and clearly no expense was spared in the renovation as the quality is excellent. It is extremely peaceful and picturesque. It was about a 3 hour drive from Rome (we rented a car at Termini Station). A great weekend getaway. If driving from Rome, don't bother with the coastal route - it is not scenic and was much slower.
Terre Gialle is close to numerous ancient hilltop cities which were fun to explore. Archidosso and Montelaterone were charming. Castel del Piano has everything you need (2 grocery stores, bakeries, etc.) and several charming squares with fountains and benches. Mount Amiata is a nice drive with pleasant restaurants at the top (still had snow in late April!).
Note that there was no TV, microwave, toaster, clothes washer, iron, etc. It's very minimalist and the room was not particularly comfortable for lounging, but that forced us to get out in the fresh air, which was good. We had read reviews which warned us that no food is available on site, so we stopped in Castel del Piano on our way and stocked up at the grocery. A highchair and cot were provided, which was very nice.
The only con: the steps to the bedroom loft were very steep and seemed a bit slippery, and I was nervous carrying my infant up and down, and worried about my 2-year old falling down. In the end, nothing bad happened and all was well. We put the 2-year old in the cot to ensure he wouldn't fall down the steps in the night.
