We normally do not like classic design, and prefer modern one. The reason for that is that in most cases classic design hotels have a smell of past ages and this smell is not quite pleasant. If you have ever been in an old hotel you know what I am talking about. The great thing about this villa is that it combines the classic design, antic furniture with the freshness and cleanness.
The villa is situated in the heart of Toscana, in the most beautiful valley I have ever seen – d’Orcia. 5 minutes’ drive from villa and you can find Montepulciano, 30 minute and you are in Montalcino. There are many other great places in the valley, but I have given those two as an example for their famous wine productions.
Villas restaurant is nice and cosy. The breakfast is well prepared – you can find a variety of dishes to your taste. Dining is a pleasant experience, I would specifically recommend tagliata. The wine list is big.
The owners are always there to help you. For example, when my wife asked to change the room because of the noise from the street they have done it without problem.
The villa is full of small details that make you stay there pleasant. LCD TV is a rare thing in Italy, especially in antic hotels, but surprisingly it here. The room and tables in the restaurant are decorated with fresh flowers. And so on..
To conclude – this was a great experience and I would gladly come back.
