First of all, after the views of this property you will be spoiled for any other views in tuscany. I'm not sure it gets better than this, it is a true stunning postcard come to life. So it's about 30 to 40 minutes outside of Florence in a tiny town. You can go the freeway or the scenic way into Florence and we did both. It's also a good base for other hill town exploration and the outlet malls. We used it as a base to explore tuscany and also go into Florence many days.

The building itself is wonderful and full of history and charm. I will say it felt in need of some updating and a good scrub. My kids loved going on a hike around the property. The pool area was okay but not that inviting or clean feeling. The restaurant is excellent for dinner though a bit pricey more of a destination dinner for locals or those just checking in. The breakfast buffet was nice and had most things you could want in a cold buffet. Both take place in the lovely dining room with wonderful views to enjoy while you eat.

The rooms vary, but we had three and i was unhappy with the lack of good air conditioning in our 'suite' as the second floor was really hot even with a fan they put in. I didn't love the bathroom either, and felt the furniture was dusty and needed updating. That said, for the view and other amenities of the property this may not matter to you. My kids loved their rooms and i was just expecting a little more lux accommodations like a Torre del Bellasquardo than this place provides.

They also seem very understaffed. They had excellent people there but not enough of them. Many times you couldn't find folks at the bar etc. The wi fi is the biggest issue i discussed with many guests that were all trying to get wi fi to work in the main room and a tiny computer room that always had some kitchen staffer sitting at, so we couldn't even get to it some nights. I didn't get to do as much prep on the next day's restaurants, food, and cities because the wi fi and connections were so bad and spotty i would give up sitting in the lobby trying to get to one site.

While i understand huge old stone walls aren't going to be conducive to wi fi and it's also up a big hill and above sea level, the wi fi makes a big difference to some of us trying to organize ourselves and the next part of our journeys, airlines, trains, etc. I would not call this a four star experience, but i would call it a great place on many levels as long as you know what you are getting.

This hotel is absolutely lovely. Located in the hills in Tuscany you couldnt hope to find anywhere better the room we had was at the front and didn't have a view of the hills but it was large with the bed on a mezzanine level above. The rooms are really large and airy and were very cool at night. The breakfast was good and the staff lovely. It is perfectly located for Florence, Chianti and Sienna. We are booking our holiday in the Italian lakes and Milan right now and we are looking for "another villa pitiana" as the charm and out of the way location is great. The hotel sells its own olive oil and wine which are great too. One thing to note was the pool was freezing cold even on boiling hot days as it is very very deep and not really maintained well this is the only let down.

My husband and I recent went here for our honeymoon. We were stunned by the beautiful Villa and the amazing views of the Tuscany hills from our bedroom window. The staff were very friendly and the morning buffet was very nice, but the restaurant was a bit disappointing for evening meals as we thought it was a little bit pricey. Donnini has a very good Pizza restaurant which is great value. We recommend you find out the bus times and use them from Donnini to get to the local train station as the taxi's have to come a long way and charge a lot for what is really just a short journey. From the train station we had wonderful trips to Florence, Rome and Pisa. All in all a fabulous location for a honeymoon!!!!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor looking out towards the swimming pool and the view was amazing. Very quiet location so imagine all rooms would be peaceful.

The place was palatial; monastery in earlier years; extremely spacious with large kitchens; our main purpose of the visit was a wedding performed there - Indian and English styles; food prepared were tasty; service was extremely courteous and helpful; rates affordable.

Room Tip: the accommodation has facilities for cooking particularly for Asians with food restrictions. Two, three room apartments are available. Breakfast included and quite sumptuous. Thirty of us went and distributed in all areas of the hotel and none complained of noise.

The villa is still a working farm of olive groves. We stayed in the villa at the rear of the property with expansive views across the hills of Toscana. The food was superb and a special thank you and praise must be given to Marco for his passion of the property and sensational service. We would highly recommend for a 1 week stay to use as a base for Tuscany.

Room Tip: Ask for the villas at the rear and you get away from all the other guests.
