We stayed overnight in a Deluxe Room which was beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our room was spacious and we had a private balcony where we enjoyed the beautiful views over the valley, vineyard and garden with a glass of wine in the late afternoon sun. We slept well in the comfortable bed and quiet location.
Our room was in a tastefully restored farmhouse in the charming, quiet village which is part of an old established wine estate. Good WiFi was available in the lounge and also in our room. Parking was convenient and safe.
We ate dinner at Osteria Fonterutoli in the village and were impressed with the quality of the food.
This overnight stay was such a treat that we would love to return for a longer stay to enjoy the wine tasting and cellar visits available at the Enoteca on site, to walk on the local walking trail and explore more of the surrounding area which is a very beautiful part of Tuscany.
We were warmly welcomed by our host who was professional, friendly and spoke excellent English.
