This was our first visit to Italy and we found this hotel a great point from which to visit many key regions; we have covered Pisa, Florence, Rome, Siena and the Chianti valley plus a lot of sun lounger/pool time in two weeks thanks to a trusty hire car and the helpful reception team. One top tip, when visiting Rome we drove to Orte (5 mins off A1) and trained in from there. Really simple and the station offers a great cup of tea also!
The hotel is great if you are fairly independent, but do not come here if you insist on international hotel comforts, eg 24 hr room service, king size double beds etc. That said the staff are very helpful and informative and will assist you any way they can. The hotel has 2 restaurants; a more formal one on site and a relaxed one with a fab view a leisurely 10 minute walk away in Artimino itself. There is also a great gelato shop next to the bell tower which was a lovely way to round off the night. The pool is lovely with plenty of sun loungers for all - the dreaded 6am 'bagging' of sun loungers doesn't happen here!
We have had a great time and will definitely return. Thank you Artimino!
