Took the family this year to this wonderful gem of a hotel in the heart of Chianti, Tuscany. While Marion and I visited the local restaurants and towns my son and daughter used the hotel as their base to visit Rome, Sienna, Florence and Cinque-Terre. We visit il Cellese on a regular basis and find the accommodation, meals and the service to be consistently excellent.
Silvia, the chef, prepares the most delicious meals, which quite frankly spoils you for other eateries. A constant comparing of her food is not fair but we sometimes have to say "Silvia's is way better". Silvia also manages the hotel with owner Sergio and his partner Svetlana. They are on site to help you with day trips, restaurant reservations, car problems, directions and translation. The location is spectacular. On the top of a tuscan hill, my camera lense never seems to capture the beauty of the view looking over the valley below and the hills in the distance.
There are a number of agri-tourismos in Tuscanny but I would recommend this little gem to you without reservation for it's fabulous staff who understand that the fun in travelling is not only in the country but the great people you meet on the way.
