Hotel location is stunning with views over the valley. Appears to be quite remote on website photos but is actually walking distance from small town of Gaiole in Chianti so convenient if you don't want to eat in the hotel (which is very good but top-end prices so good to have an alternative). Only complaint was some quite noisy guests - hotel seems to be popular with American tour groups so the tranquil Tuscan atmosphere didn't always extend to the pool and terrace areas (would think twice if you are booking as a honeymoon location). There is also a 10 euro per person per day charge for sports facilities which does actually include the swimming pool - the website does mention it but we just assumed that was only for gym use, bike hire etc. Don't be put off by "the annex" referred to on the website - we stayed there and it's a beautiful building with old roof beams, tiled floor and 4-poster bed - one of the rooms also has it's own separate terrace. Overall a beautiful hotel and setting with friendly, helpful staff and when it's quiet, it's perfect!
