A Wonderful SuprisePosted Oct 11, 2010
If you're looking for a great "base camp" for touring the hill towns of southern Tuscany and Umbria, then this hotel is worth checking. Though the location is in an extremely quiet area, the hotel exceeded our expectations in most regards and represents a wonderful, restful oasis during busy days of sightseeing. This was a great find and value for the price.

The most pleasent hotel we have stayed inPosted Jul 30, 2009 on Hotels.com
There were a number of reasons for our stay being a such a wonderful experience. Our plane was delayed 4 hours and so we didnt arrrive at our hotel until 12 midnight. Hot and tired we were very quickly welcomed and taken to our room by the most friendly of staff one could possibly ask for. the following day we were give a tour of the hotels facilities which has a fine eternity pool found by wandering through the quite tree lined gardens. The setting overlooks the tuscan hills and is without doubt a classic Italian setting. The food (lots of home bakes) was close on perfect. save the cappucinos made from UHT milk (what a crime) and a americano coffee was actually instant! (even more heinous crime) The decour is classic italian without being garish and overdone the room was very comfortable though the walls were a little thin for comfort and one could hear the neighbours without much effort! Over all our stay was one of the happiest and most remembered of all our wonderings across europe. i would heartily recomend a stay here and after a late meal a wander down to the pool where you can lie on the loungers looking for shooting stars while trying to remember the names of the constellations. just about perfect.

Best hotel I've ever stayed in -4 star +++++!Posted Jul 18, 2009
This hotel was absolutely outstanding. Its setting and grounds were a pure, romantic Tuscan delight; its staff were professional to their very fingertips, and were always wanting to help, especially the lovely Claudia; and the rooms were immaculate, and everything you see in the photos is just as good and better in real life. The dining room was impeccably dressed and the full breakfast is superb - as was the casual restaurant we dined in. There is a tranquil elegance about this hotel which made me feel I was in a very very special place. I lost myself in the surrounding countryside as I lazed by the pool and when I relaxed in the gazebo enjoying 'american' coffee and latte. I hope and pray I have the good fortune to return here.

Definitely Will ReturnPosted Jul 13, 2008
This hotel is very impressive. After spending five days at a depressing Venice Hotel, this was a very welcome relief. The view by the swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous! The grounds are well kept and a pleasure to walk around. Service and friendliness of the staff is outstanding. Food is awesome. I plan on returning to spend more relaxing time there.

Nearly perfectPosted Nov 28, 2007 on Hotels.com
Easy to find, well appointed. Main restaurant was closed in November but the food in the Taverna was excellent. Service was great until the main courses arrived, at which point we never saw them again.... Didn't need to pay a bill, which was just as well as we had no hope of getting anyones' attention - so we left. Shame, but the chef still did a great job up to that point. No idea what the desserts are like :)

A beautiful Tuscan innPosted Nov 1, 2007
Our room was everything we hoped it would be when we looked for a place that had some history, yet had all the comforts needed for a pleasant stay. Well decorated room, spacious bathroom, and a view of the sunrise from our second story chamber were among its many good features. Windows had shutters you can throw open, as if you were Lucy Honeychurch from "a room with a view" (even tho this was not Florence!) Ground floor had a couple of parlors so we could have private visiting space for us and our friends staying in other rooms. We wished we could have stayed longer.

A jewelPosted Oct 15, 2007
This hotel is exceptional. We ate in the Tuscan Restaurant in the basement level and had one of the best meals of our trip. Service was all round fabulous. We did not have a car and found the bus the Cuisi a little difficult to figure out. Taxi from the station was about 11 Euro.
