Excellent hotel with panoramic vista over the ArnoPosted May 17, 2015
Pros: Virtually everything!
Cons: It would be a good idea for the hotel to provide a small safe in each room and perhaps a small refrigerator
Location: Access is strictly by car because the hotel is well off the "beaten track" along steep and winding country lanes.
We received a very warm welcome from Gabriella & Christina who made every effort to make our stay a comfortable one. Most of the rooms have a panoramic vista from the balcony looking out over the valley of the Arno River and the wooded Tuscan countryside. The room was a good size and could accommodate three; The bathroom was very well appointed and the rooms have air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice; The hotel has its own restaurant and offers a very reasonably priced set menu each day. We were provided with a kettle and coffee & tea in the room. In the summer months there is a large swimming pool and sun terrace. What's not to love?

great, great, great!Posted Oct 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
I can't say enough positives about this place! The staff is wonderful, the rooms are large and clean. I had a wonderful balcony and view of the Tuscan countryside. The food was great too. I went here alone without a car. So for small surcharge the staff would drive me to the closest train stop abt 5min away. Buses run very often so it's easy to get into Florence or other cities at that point. The staff helped me with researching train times. Also free Wi-Fi! Loved it!!!

Lovely little hotelPosted Oct 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Having had a tiring few days in Rome, this lovely little hotel was an oasis of tranquility, in a pretty village in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, not far from Florence. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, providing maps and booking our entry to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, saving us hours of queuing. The room was finished to a very high quality and we had a lovely terrace overlooking the Arno valley. Breakfasts were delicious with plenty of choice but it hadn't been clear to us when we booked that they weren't included in the cost of the hotel. It would have been better if they had been as it would have been unlikely we'd have gone elsewhere for breakfast. We had dinner at the hotel on 3 nights. The food was great but limited and we could have done with some vegetables! Also, we had to pay for extras such as water and bread, but didn't realise this until we came to settle the final bill. This should have been made clear upfront. The hotel was well placed for exploring Tuscany, though one road back to the hotel was scary to say the least! All in all, we had a lovely stay at this charming hotel and would strongly recommend it if you're considering visiting this part of the world.

Siisti hotelli kauniilla paikalla.Posted Oct 12, 2014
Oli mukava tulla rauhaliselle hotellille turisti tungosten jälkeen. Kiva kylä, yksi ravintola ja pieni kauppa josta sai herkkuja Toscanasta. Omistaja 20 vuotta sitten muuttanut ruotsista. Hän osasi neuvoa kullanarvoisia paikkoja ja autoi maksamaan sakkoni.

Schöne kleine Unterkunft mit super AusblickPosted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Ausblick auf das Arnotal, Möglichkeit in der hoteleigenen Taverne abends zu essen, Pool mit Ausblick
Cons: Parkmöglichkeiten verbessern
Location: Die nächstgrößere Stadt ist Signa (ca 10-15 Autominuten). Von dort kann man mit dem Zug bequem viele bekannte Ziele erreichen (Florenz, Pisa, Siena,.
Das Hotel ist nur mit dem Auto zu erreichen (über enge Bergstraßen), was aber ok ist. Abenteuerlich wird es dann, wenn man versuchen muss auf einer stark abschüssigen mit Rollsplit versehen Hotelzufahrt zu parken bzw. zu wenden. Wenn das geschafft ist, hat man aber einen umso schöneren Blick auf das Arnotal (insbesondere bei den Zimmern mit Balkon oder Dachterasse). Für den Pool gilt dasselbe. Sehr zu empfehlen ist auch die hoteleigene Taverne, in der wir sehr gut gegessen haben. Wer viel unternehmen will kann auch bequem von Signa (nächstgrößere Stadt 10-15 Autominuten entfernt) mit dem Zug viele bekannte Ziele (Florenz, Pisa, Siena, etc.) schnell und günstig erreichen.

Great views and friendly people.Posted Sep 5, 2014
Overall I had a good stay and found the people helpful and friendly. The whole feel of the hotel was positive and the negative comments following only affected the first day. Unfortunately, on arrival, I had to search the hotel and get help from other guests to find the check in person. A notice said to ring the bell for reception but nobody answered either that or the phone. The appropriate person was busy with other duties and thought all guests were already checked in. He was quick to help when finally contacted. Late in the same day I had to ask twice for the canned music playing by the pool to be turned off (at about 1030pm). It had been left on by mistake after the pool closed and the speakers were facing my room. Both these things were dealt with and there was much else to commend. The restaurant for example is very pleasant and the food is good even if rather light on vegetables. The breakfast terrace is great with a tremendous view. Information in the room could be improved. It doesn't mention that breakfast and dinner are taken in different places for example and it would have been good to be given the wifi code without asking.

Lille dejligt hotel i lækre omgivelserPosted Jul 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
Dejligt lille hotel, der ligger med en pragtfuld udsigt i lille charmerende Carmignano. Vi blev modtaget med åbne arme (til trods for at vi kom 3 timer før indtjek startede), og vi blev straks budt på frokost, selvom dette skulle være booket i forvejen. Lille og ok morgenmadsbuffet til billig penge. Personale og ejere storsmilende hele tiden. Poolområdet er indbydende og lækkert. Helt sikkert ikke sidste gang vi har været der!

Hotell med pool och utsiktPosted Jul 16, 2014
Mysigt hotell på landet. Bil ett måste. God frukostbuffé på terrassen med underbar utsikt. Stor pool, dock ibland med lite väl hög musik. I övrigt ett perfekt familjehotell för dagsturer i Toscana.

Great placePosted Jul 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Amazing views, great atmosphere. Great price for what you get. Only issue was air conditioning didn't work- it was comfortable if you left the windows open, but then there were mosquitoes. I liked the place enough to overlook this, I'd stay again for sure.
