Stunning Area and Fantastic Little Hotel :)

Posted 3-Jul-2014
Pros: Whole stay was very relaxed and leisurely and layout of the Hamlet is such that you don't feel like you are in a purpose built, manufactured hotel
Cons: Two small things - the matress is not that comfortable and the pool is VERY cold
Location: Chianti is stunning and the Hotel is an excellent base for touring around the area - Sienna, Castellina, Radda and Greve are well worth a visit
My husband and I stayed here for 10 nights from Mid June and found the hotel to be wonderful. We had a double room which was perfectly adequate, roomy with a lovely big shower room. The hotel itself is really well kept. Rooms are very clean, service is excellent and the gardens really well kept. The buffet style breakfast is continental. .Loved that they hadn't caved to trying to do "English" breakfast - there was great choice. We dined in the restaurant one night and found the food and service were great. The reception staff were very helpful and

Pros: Location is phenomenal, atmosphere very quaint
Location: Drive the Tuscan countryside.
Low season visit was still wonderful. Turning leaves on the vineyards and the olive harvest. Hotel was very quiet.

A good place to stay

Posted 14-Sep-2012
Pros: Good, decent sized room, kept clean throughout. Lovely setting. Really good breakfasts - no excuse for going hungry.
Cons: Cold swimming pool, slightly bumpy access drive from the main road
Location: Excellent spot if you like it nice and quiet. Convenient for the local towns like Radda and Castellina, and also not far from Siena and Florence.
Very helpful staff, especially the guy from Holland. Only downside was that the swimming pool was er, cold, shall we say. Some solar panels to help heat the water would be a good investment. Otherwise we couldn't fault the place.

Nice but not what we would call a four star hotel

Posted 22-Aug-2012 on Hotels.com
The 1300th century village hotel was very rustic and had a nice feel about it. The staff were very polite and friendly but our room was disappointingly small with very little closet space and had two single beds pushed together to make a queen. It was very hard and not at all comfortable and as a result we didn't sleep very well. We would suggest investing in some quality mattresses. The breakfast was good and the restaurant staff were very nice, too bad about the bedding we truly could have enjoyed our stay much more.

Nice hotels, beautiful location. But in the humidity in the room in the middle of the summer with a insufficient A/C is not fun. We couldn't sleep well. Everything else was beautiful, but unfortunately due to the room, if I go back to Tuscany, I will try to find other places

Fantastic property in a beautiful location in the middle of the Chianti wine country. The grounds, the views, the room, the pool, the food, the wine were all outstanding. A very relaxing place to spend a holiday.

Great Hotel, Great staff, very good food

Posted 28-Jul-2012 on Hotels.com
The location is just fantastic. At 660m elevation, it's a relief after the hot and humid days in the rest of Tuscany. The owners tried to recreate the same old vllage that existed here, which feels great. The staff were fantastic, all very helpful. Their wine was very good - the Lodolaio is unforgettable. Chianti is a great location to take as a base. My humble two cents to everybody who visits Tuscany: don't cram-pack your days trying to tick off everything in Tuscany off of the list in a limited number of days; it's very exhausting and honestly gets touristically repetitive after a while. I did 1000km in 5 days and totally regret it.

Great Hotel in Tuscany!

Posted 1-Nov-2011 on Hotels.com
My boyfriend, now fiancé (we got engaged in Tuscany!), stayed here for 5 days in October. We had a very pleasant stay. It is a charming hotel with a real Tuscan feel. Rooms were clean and the service was friendly. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. The Restaurant is ok and the wine is some of the best we have had. The location was very convenient for day trips... we were able to do Sienna, Florence, Livorno, Pisa and Cortona. Overall we loved the hotel and would love to come back!
