    It was quiet and had lovely views but it was quite far from the road so you need a car.

    We stayed for 4 nights (June/July 2019) and booked a triple occupancy room (1 double bed and 1 twin bed). We were 2 adults and 1 teenager (15 years). LOCATION: This was the best view/location of our trip. We had rented a car in Florence and got to the hotel in 30 min. We used Google maps to guide us and had no problems. The road leading to the hotel is bumpy, but the view is amazing. There was always parking available. ROOM: Our room was a good size, and quiet. But the air conditioning did make some noise a few times, which woke my husband up. It had a fridge, TV, hairdryer (wall unit), small desk and chair, wardrobe (with extra blankets) and 2 bed tables. The shower was small but not too tiny. The TV did not have any english channels working, so we listened to the France news channel instead. BREAKFAST: The view from the terrace where we could eat breakfast was breathtaking. The food was the same for the 4 mornings we were there, but it was very good. There were eggs, ham and another cold cut, cheese, fresh croissants and fresh bread, juice, plenty of fruits. The owner would prepare us the coffee we wanted (cappuccinos were very good). POOL: Very nice pool. Clean. The water was not very cold, because of the sun and it was very hot during our stay. There was some shade if needed. OTHER: The owner was very nice to us, always available. There are a few cats and bunnies. Lots of flowers. CONCLUSION : Best hotel of the trip! Our host was fantastic. We would go back anytime.

    Beautiful B&B in nature

    Beautiful location nestled away down a hill. Nice walking trails and shot walk to fab restaurant. Breakfast is limited/standard and could be improved a bit. Pool is really nice and a big plus

    Love this home and Chianti

    We had a wonderful stay. The room was very pretty and quiet. Beautiful location overlooking the wineyards. Nice walks, nearby pretty villages. Simone made tasty breakfast and yummy cappuccino!!! He was very helpful. We got there late and hungry. He served us delicious bread and Italien salami and prosciutto! That was so kind. The only complaint it took some time to heat the room because the evenings got cold. Otherwise I highly recommend this wonderful place. Chianti is gorgeous.
