NOW I know where all the "Excellent" reviews come from: upon check-out you are prompted to submit a review on the web and you get a freebie which somehow evens any roughness you might have experienced. Neutrally speaking, I cannot argue the good ambiance, fresh food and hospitality. However, nobody mentions things like the wi-fi is not included (surprisingly billed at the end), or the horse-back riding is nowhere near to this place as advertised (they say it's a "5 minute drive", when it is actually 45 min on a dirt road). Overall, it was a good experience but the value is very low compared to similar agri-tourism options.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

It nestles, perfectly at ease, among the Crete Senesi and, after strictly conservational restoration, begun in 2004 and completed in 2006, it is now the ideal spot for anyone wishing to refresh spirit, senses, mind and body. ... more less
