“A gem for a family holiday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Situated a few miles from Citta di Castello up a few interesting (!) switch back turns - you arrive to a magnificent setting and a very friendly welcome.
The property has been in the same family for many years and managed by a lovely husband and wife team (Salvatore + Angelica) but the winning ingredients are Tania their manager whose enthusiasm and can do approach is abundant - she's also wonderful with children. And Antonio the chef who makes food that is way above the hotel's general 3 star rating.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - they just want you to have a lovely stay
Rooms are very simple, somewhat old fashioned and, and the bathrooms are very basic but clean and plentiful hot water.
A huge pool, tennis court, and space for children to run around, play on the footie pitch, shoot some hoops or play volley ball. There is also table football and table tennis. And lots of local walking
If I was to add anything it would be to have a proper sitting room / comfortable sofas and chairs in the reception area
It's not a hotel in the traditional sense (in our view) rather it's a middle ground between l'agriturismo, a villa rental, and a hotel. They do hold weddings as there is an tiny ancient chapel, there was a wedding during our stay and it didn't interfere in our stay rather, it was charming to watch the bride and guests arrive :)
An easy family holiday suited to those who wish to stay put relax by the pool, play tennis and while away the day or to those who like to spend days exploring but want a nice base to return to in the evening
We're looking forward to returning

Room Tip: Over looking the pool is lovely but the down side is the pool pump seems to be set to very early daw...

We spent two nights in Villa San Donino and it's a really nice place to spent some days. The house is on the top of a hill (you surely need a car to get there!) and the place is wonderful. The room are quite simple, but big and clean.

The hotel is nestled in a quiet forest and has a swimming pool surrounded by cypress trees.
All around green hills, meadows and trees with background sounds of the swallows.
A paradise managed with professionalism and expertise by two very nice people: Salvatore and Angelica.
Chef Antonio is simply remarkable with his new delicious courses created every day.
A wonderful holiday to be recommended to all.
If possible, avoid Saturdays and Sundays because the Hotel often hosts weddings (ask the owners).
