We stayed here for four nights and were extremely happy with our accommodations. Cris, our host, was always happy to share his wealth of information on places to see, places to eat and the best ways to get there. The location was great for day trips to Florence, Sienna, Volterra, San Gimignano and Cinque Terra. The rooms were spacious and clean. The kitchen was ours to use, and we were made to feel at home when using the common area. Breakfast was a typical European breakfast that was always nice and fresh. A nice touch was the "emergency wine rack." If you forgot to pick up a bottle of wine, you were welcomed to take a bottle from the rack with the understanding that it would be replaced before checking out. It didn't have to be the same bottle of wine, just another bottle. This was something we took advantage of on several nights. Actually, we didn't have time to replace the bottle we drank the night before we left, and Cris simply ask that we include a small tip instead. All in all, a very pleasant stay where I would stay again and recommend to friends without any hesitation. Did I mention that the price was VERY reasonable as well?!? The only negative thing I could say was that there was a neighbor's dog that barked all night long one night, and there is a rooster in the neighborhood that does his job well.
