We chose to come to the Dimora Casa Eugenia for our honeymoon and we were so pleased with our choice - we had such a wonderful, relaxing stay at this fantastic hotel in the beautiful Tuscan town of Loro Ciuffenna.
We stayed in the Gialli (Yellow) room and we would highly recommend this room - a very comfortable bed, an excellent shower room and a wonderful lounge with views over the village and river.
The staff, Francesca and Carlo, were superb and were ready to help with any enquiry. Francesca printed off bus timetables and maps and helped to arrange taxis for us.
Breakfasts were served in a beautiful room overlooking the river and were very generous - cakes, pastries, focaccia, ham, cheese, bread cereals, teas and coffee!
We chose not to drive on this trip, but we would recommend hiring a car if you are interested in exploring the nearby Tuscan countryside (although there are fantastic views from the bus on the ride to Montevarchi train station). One thing to note if you are relying on public transport is that taxis in Montevarchi do not tend to wait on the stands after 8pm, so if you are planning to return to the train station from a day trip later than this, we would suggest asking Francesca or Carlo to arrange a taxi for you in advance.
The regional train service provides excellent value - only a few Euros to go to Florence! - and there are regular trains between Firenze S. M. Novella station and Montevarchi. We also visited Rome, which was a longer trip - you can either choose to take the regional train to Florence and then change to the more expensive, but quicker service on a Eurostar train to Roma Termini or to take a regional train all the way from Montevarchi to Rome.
We had two excellent meals in the restaurant down the stairs to the left of the entrance of the hotel - Va Pensiero. Our first meal was inside the restaurant with its lovely decor and our second was outside on its terrace, with the wonderful views across Loro Ciuffenna. The food was outstanding and the service was friendly and efficient.
Although we did not eat there, we were told by other residents staying in Dimora Casa Eugenia that the restaurant to the other side of the hotel's entrance, Osterio New Conte Max, is also quite excellent. We also had a pizza at Dimicla, where the service was very friendly.
We fell in love with Loro Ciuffenna - with its beautiful town, little winding streets, friendly people and wonderful views. If you would like a drink in the evening, we would recommend the Jolly Cafe in the main square, where the proprietor is very friendly and chatty.
We could not recommend this hotel highly enough and we would like to thank Francesca and Carlo for all of their help and their friendliness during our stay. We hope to come back to stay again!
