“A slice of (quiet) Tuscan heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This place was welcome respite after several days in cities. So quiet at night all we could hear were the crickets.
This former 14th century convent has been converted into spacious apartments with all you'll need to fix your own meals for lunch or dinner. Breakfast (provided for an extra 7EU/night, is an excellent value, with many choices, and a lovely table set up just for you.
Lorella is a gracious hostess, she'll do anything she can to ensure you have a good stay.
The location is makes for a good Tuscan base - an easy drive to Sienna, San Gimignano, and Volterra.
Be sure to try some of their wine!

Truly a dream vacation. We only stayed for 3 nights, but it was amazing! I highly recommend staying here, don't think twice.
The location is far enough in the countryside to allow peace and quiet, but still convenient for day trips in Tuscany.
The accommodations are somewhat rustic, but you still have everything you need. The property is beautiful. (Vineyard, olive orchards, and the swimming pool was wonderful too.)
Lorella & company treat you like family!

Now the best part - stay/attend the weekly dinner!!!! It was the best meal we've ever had. Period. All 5+ courses were delicious, home-made, exquisite quality! It was a highlight of our trip to Italy!

Exceeded our expectations.

Great traditional location in the heart of Tuscany. Ideal place to stay while visiting the major cities and locations: only 50 km to Firenze, 20 km to Siena and San Gimignano, 75 km to Montalcino. Lovely people that make you feel comfortable and at home.

I loved the apartment and the people. You had an outside table to eat at when you wanted. I would definitely go again. The wine is great and as a very good price.
There is no internet for guests which I did know about and was good as work could not get hold of me :-)
The only thing we would have liked is more comfortable seating as the living room only had dining room chairs and sofa bed. The bed in the bedroom was excellent. Bathroom was excellent as well. The apartment even had radiators for winter!! But if you want Aircon there is none.
I did not use the pool but looked good.
The owner was happy and willing to help in any way.
Thanks

We loved the place. The host was friendly, energetic and was always smiling. The entry though the narrow road with tall trees on either sides is grand. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The view of sunset from the pool is breathtaking.

The location is perfect too. You can reach Colle val d'elsa in 10 minutes by car where there are many nice places to eat. The location is perfect to explore Sienna, Florence, Greve, Radda, Volterra, san gimignano ect....

We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a real 'Tuscan' experience.

Room Tip: The villas that open up to the pool are the best
