We spent a week here from 7 September 2013 and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We specifically wished to see the Tuscan countryside as well as Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano and picked this hotel as it was ideally located to ensure we didn't have to travel too far to any destination.
The hotel is located in the village of Pancole amid olive groves and vineyards and only a few minutes in the car from San Gimignano. It was very quiet and it was a pleasure to return there after a day out to relax by the pool or in the delightful gardens with a good book and a cold drink.
Our room suited our purposes (although we would opt for a room with a balcony on a return visit) with good ensuite facilities and the fridge proved useful. Air conditioning ensured a comfortable temperature and the cleaning staff were very efficient.
The hotel restaurant advertises typical Tuscan fare and the menu was perfectly sufficient for our purposes with the food being well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. All the staff we met were both very helpful and pleasant although we felt that service could be a little slow at times in the evening and an extra member of staff would have helped with this.
Overall we really enjoyed our Tuscan holiday and no doubt Le Renaie contributed to this enjoyment. We are happy to recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Tuscany and would certainly return ourselves if in the area again.
