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 had a great holiday based at "the old paper mill", whizzing around Tuscany in Florence (our hired Fiat 500 who did sterling work up and down and around the hills and winding roads). Colle is a good base if you prefer to stay in "real" Italy, and is close enough to the touristy bits (Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra etc) for days out. The hotel staff are great - friendly and helpful, and they didn't laugh at my amateur Italiano! Our room was clean and comfy with a lovely view of the old town.
The hotel is easy to find if you call the hotel and ask for the address to enter into gps, the address on Expedia is not good enough if you are using GPS Tom Tom Device. We easily found the hotel, it is very close to Siena and it was great. The people who run the hotel are very warm and friendly and speak English. The hotel exterior is beautiful and the interior is lovely. The facility is not 'new' it is NOT supposed to be it was built in 1700, the atmosphere shows the age of the building and it has a tremendous amount of character. The outside grounds are lovely, the pool is great, the flowers and landscaping are wonderful. I did not want to leave, we stayed one night and I wanted to extend our stay, but we could not. I would stay there for weeks, the feeling of the place and the character alone makes a trip to this hotel worthwhile.
Great apartment, big rooms , lovely bathroom , real comfort. BUT on a 4 day stay not to have Wifi in room and having to go up the street to hotel reception where it was very hit or (more likely) miss doesn't make for a great stay.
Location good for trips around countryside and visits to surrounding major cities .
