The hotel as such was ok, far away from Tuscany as such. We were there in October, the temperature was above 20 degree Celsius. Apparently it was already off season and there was nothing opened in the hotel, neither the pool, wellness, park, lake or the restaurant. No one mentioned all this during the check in and you have to drive out at least 15 minutes to get some food in the nearby villages and if at all you can find something. The jogging track was a joke.. not very user friendly.. There were hardly any guests. We stayed for 10 days and had the same identical breakfast everyday. The bread served was so hard and old, you can throw at the wall. They also served the same old cake for the whole week and no one even touched it,looked disgusting. The room service did not clean the used glasses for 2 days in a row. Certainly all staff were friendly but we expected a little bit more. Disappointed as a whole and glad to leave home finally. It never happened so far and we travel a lot in our life. If they do not offer anything during off season, they should mention it on their website or just close it. As for the satellite TV, you can even watch Arabic and Thai channels but not many European channels, if you do not have your own entertainment, you will be bored to death.
