    Very friendly staff. Good location. Parking area at rear of hotel. Great breakfast. Would recommend..

    Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019


    Clean room, but insufficient hooks in bathroom for towels & clothing. Hotel is situated in quiet (semi deserted) area...

    4/5 Good

    Great staff - friendly and helpful Surprising pass to their camping pool Not great breakfast- needs fresh fruit for sure. Wished the room was a little more unique or at least decorated- air conditioning didn’t work and we were so hot all night

    Stayed 1 night in Aug 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Great easy location. Not really within walking to the city of Volterra. But close enough to drive 2 min to parking. Great breakfast and good dinner location attached/near the rooms.

    Stayed 1 night in Mar 2019
