My girlfriend, her 13 year old daughter and I had the great pleasure of staying in this charming little hotel in the village of Petroio for four nights. We arrived with very little difficulty, thanks to our GPS, having driven the scant hour and three quarters from Florence. Our room was large, with an attached sitting area, and our back door opened onto a terrace with an unconstructed view of the nearby hills. The hotel manager has connections and extensive knowledge of the area, and he was able to set up several unique adventures for us. When we wanted to explore on our own, he even guided to the best route, and one time, when we had car trouble on the freeway, he came himself to rescue us and worked with the car rental place to get us a replacement car. The hotel restaurant is excellent, and we had lovely breakfast there each morning. I can truthfully say that the best bread and croissants (French style) can be found here. The villagers were very friendly, and we chanced upon a weekend where there was a festival in the town. Wonderful.
