The hotel is set in an amazing location with beautiful views, in a very old church. Rooms are fairly good sized & comfortable, though not luxurious. Shuttle service to the bottom of the hill is available @10am & back up @6pm, which is great but you must ask the night prior.
Know that you take bus #37 to Florence; the stop is across the street at the store Il Bottai, and tickets are 2 euros on the bus/1.20 if you buy from a store. You must validate them in the machine on the bus. Coming back, watch for the stop for "il bottai" and the shuttle picks you up by the wine shop (which has some amazing deals). One staff member (Andrea, waiter/front desk) was outstanding - friendly, helpful, attentive. Some of the others a bit surly or unwilling to assist. Breakfast buffet was perfect, dinners in restaurant were a bit spendy but outstanding food. Overall an amazing and romantic place if you want to base your Florence adventure a bit outside the city.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recomend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a quiet getaway. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was great (we had it to ourselves which was an added bonus). There is plenty of places to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine (all with lovely views). Overall, a lovely hotel.
Outstanding hotel in amazing setting. The only drawbacks were that it is quite hard to find, the room was chilly as we were the only guests and the restaurant is not part of the hotel even though owned by the same person and in the same building. That said, if you want an amazing venue in rural Tuscany with a good restuarant close by, I'll challenge you to do better!
