We stayed at the Villa for four nights while in Italy. I loved it from the beginning but my husband was not convienced at first. The we went to Florance for the day and he was sold. It is a great escape from the crowds and craziness that goes with driving or just sight seeing in the connecting areas. Returning to the Villas after visiting other cities was wonderful. The living space is very large for all of your needs. The bed was not the best but was fine no longer than we slept. The staff were great. We were greeted and assisted by Eleonora who ran the reception area and has worked there for over 10 years. Another female was there for one day and was just as delightful They were both so helpful with suggesting local restaurants to visit, we loved...I CAVALLACCI...which was right down the road and walkable. One also suggested that we take time to visit the city of San Gimignano on our way to Siena. It was our favorite spot and we wished that we had stayed there the entire day instead of leaving to go to Siena. Eleonora also gave us a tour of the olive making facility that is on site, explaining the process and letting us watch the men do their work....it was very interesting. She put fresh olive oil in the dining area the next morning for us to taste. So if you like the peace and quiet of the countryside this is a great place! The town is very small but the bus stop is at the end of their driveway which was convenient too.
We had a delightful stay in this very comfortable hotel. They recommended a great local restaurant - La Saletta. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. Breakfast was great. Good central location to explore Tuscany from.
Very nice experience! I would like to stay there 2 or 3 nights more, bur unfortunately I couldn't. Very kind staff. At the restaurant ask for Alessandro, a maitre. He's very kind and knows everything about wines... We loved this hotel!

We loved our 12-night stay. It is 20km from Florence which is very convenient. The location is close to Tavarnelle, with lots of good restaurants and a supermarket. We divided our time between day trips and sightseeing and the pool. Our room was very comfortable, we had an extra bed for our daughter and there was more than enough space. We had a large balcony that was terrific for dining al fresco in the evenings. The pool was lovely with an outdoor bar terrace and very well maintained. Breakfasts were most generous with a laid back atmosphere and a very large selection of food for every taste. The real strength of this hotel lies in the staff who make you feel as if you are almost family! The manager Antonella is absolutely delightful, she has appointed the hotel stylishly and she exudes a warmth which is infectious to her staff. She has lots of excellent recommendations for local trips and where to eat, The reception will arrange bookings to any of the museums in Florence or Sienna, which allows you to chill and not have to plan too far ahead. We loved the towns south of Sienna and there are some great bargains to be had in the outlets north of Florence. Just ask at reception or chat with her over breakfast! We met a number of guests who come back regularly. One family has been coming every summer for the last 15 years! We also want to go back already…
Could not say enough about the waiting staff at this hotel, they were excellent. Hotel itself was perfect with stunning views and lovely rooms. Food was very good and excellent value. I'd certainly so back and wold recommend this hotel.
