“Great hotel in a remote location”
If you're looking for a great place to get away in a quiet, remote place, this hotel will speak to you. Gorgeous setting, its own restaurant, spectacular views.
excellent value. great staff and food.
Can't say enough good things about this hotel, the staff, etc. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it. Food, service, everything was top-notch.
My wife and I traveled to Italy for our honeymoon in April 2009. We started our trip in Rome and after four days and nights in the hustle and bustle of the city it was wonderful to find ourselves relaxing at this hillside retreat on night five. The hotel sits high above Arezzo in peace and tranquility; the mass of the old walls gives a feeling of permanence and comfort. The proprietors treated us like old friends; we felt like we were visiting a family home but with all of the privacy you expect in a hotel. The dinnner meal at their restaurant was top notch with attentive service. I highly recommend the veal entree. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night due to our itinerary; I would recommend at least two nights allowing for a full day of relaxation.
I personally find the hotel is great. The room was super clean, tidy and well maintained. The restaurant is excellent. The reception staff very good and professional. The location of it is also very good.
“Find Your Spiritual Self in this Secluded Retreat”
Trying to find the "perfect" hotel for our final stay in Italy after 10 days of touring, I selected this property. It might have worked if we weren't so very frustrated upon arrival. The source of our annoyance: we could NOT find this hotel. Without a street address and only location listed, our GPS could NOT determine where to send us. We stopped no less than 5 people: they all laughed while trying to provide broken English directions. It sits high atop a hill in its own remote location. While we saw one sign, it wasn't clear which direction to go to. Once there, be prepared to spend time as the grounds are lovely. Since Arezzo is miles away (translating to many many minutes because of the slow curves and steep terroir) you also won't want to leave to eat. There is a fancy cave-like restaurant which also translates to high prices on food and wine compared to the city fare. But, with all that said, the hotel is lovely. The breakfast was one of the best. And, the experience of staying in a former monastary was thrilling. It was easy to see how one might have taken a spiritual journey. Unfortunately, the month of March isn't pool season but the pool was still beautiful. It would be a perfect place to honeymoon or get away from it all if you want a bit of downtime.
“Beauty above Arezzo”
Lovely family-owned hotel in the hills above Arezzo. The facility was a monastery built in the 16th century. The rooms are comfortably but simply furnished. The restaurant was superb and featured fresh local ingredients. The owner shuttled us for free 20 minutes to the train station upon our departure. A great experience!
Very difficult to find - service extreme positive-vue splendid for a hill hotel- small room with insects! not a good quality-price relation- no elevator - sympathic chief
