A hotel with a grand pool view and fantastic food
Posted Jul 16, 2015 on Hotels
Giuseppe and his wonderful friendly staffs provide with best hospitality. It feels like a traditional family hotel, not fancy but genuine warm hearted atmosphere and good value for the money. Attentive professional service without feeling artificial. Rooms completely ok but differs in standard so ask to see more than one room if possible. The hotel restaurant food is of top quality, cooked with great passion and very good value for the money, probably the best dining within a range of 100 km from San Baronto, the same class of food you have probably to pay three times more in Florence. If you looking for a typical tourist trap restaurant with menu with colorful images of all the dishes, this is not the place for you. Menu is sadly only in Italian, ask the staff, they will happily translate it for you. You will not find typical pasta Bolognese in the menu (but if you still want to have it, the kitchen will cook it for you). The hotel pool area is something special with a grand scenic view over the valley. It’s a perfect place for tranquility and peaceful rest, without pumping disco pumping from the speakers. The free Wi-Fi connectivity is little bit slow depending the time of the day. The breakfast is not extravagant but typical Italian and completely alright. Location for doing excursions by car around in northern Tuscany is perfect. There are fresh breezes of clear air in the mountain area, not that hot like in the plain. There is a bit of a hidden paradise.
