Everything you want Tuscany to bePosted Sep 13, 2015
Pros: Proximity to San Gimignano, but much quieter than the famous town itself. First rate service from the young woman who looks after it. Good parking
Cons: The sign pointing to the entrance actually points to the outside door of one of the rooms. Otherwise everything was perfect.
Location: Shopping, sightseeing and dining in San Gimignano and Volterra. Wine tasting next door. Beautiful surroundings to explore.
The hotel is situated in an unspoiled 'borgo' or hamlet about three miles out of San Gimignano on the Volterra road. Stone buildings situated against a backdrop of rolling vineyards, woods and fields. Across the road, a church, and next door a farm house where the farm's Chianti can be tasted - also some fine whites. I bought a bottle of the Riserva which was full and round, well structured and lacked the back-of-the-pallet acidity associated with lesser wines from the region. The hotel itself was beautiful inside and out - stone walls, comfortable traditional furniture and a large fireplace in the kitchen-dining area which in the winter would make the place very cosy indeed. My bedroom boasted a copy of Botticelli's Venus painted onto the wall above the bedstead. I slept well; no traffic top disturb me, and the bed was comfortable. The young woman who looks after the hotel did a remarkable job, and was friendly and polite. She also produced a magnificent breakfast. Understandably, it is best to arrive after 3 o'clock in the afternoon, as she spends all her time between the end of breakfast and 3 pm cleaning the whole building to a very high standard.

Bella, non proprio Vicino a San gimignano come descritto da Expedia, ma lo consiglio.

Recomendado ! Muito bem arrumado e agradavel.Posted Aug 6, 2015 on Hotels
Lugar muito bonito e agradável. Tipo B&B . A proposta é você ter um quarto, como se estivesse na casa de um amigo. Não existe pessoas para prestar serviços diversos. Somente para limpeza. Café da manha , se solicitado à pessoa da limpeza, é simples, e cobra muito pouco. Excelente lugar, e recomendado, dada a proposta.

Where did everybodu go?Posted Jul 19, 2015 on Hotels
First of all the hotel IS NOT in San Gimiganao as advertised it is 4 km away. The place is nice but we were greeted by one person who was only interested in taking our payment. We were not told about breakfast (where it was) or how to contact someone if there was a problem. We were then abandoned through our stay. The add also said there were kitchen facilities but large signs said if we touched anything we would be charged an extra 30 Euros. Pleasant enough surroundings but horrid service.

Un bel recupero di un borgo altrimenti disabitatoPosted May 10, 2014
Pros: Bello l'antico borghetto, immerso nel verde e ottimamente restaurato.
Cons: Doccia un po' piccola e la tendina faticava a contenere l'acqua, cosicché si è bagnato tutto il pavimento del bagno.
Posto carino, a 10 min di macchina dalla bellissima San Gimignano e a 20 min da Volterra.

Very nice but a bit expensive for one night stay without breakfast

B&B molto buono. Posizione ottima, camera pulita, personale disponibile. Il borgo è stupendo e la val d'Elsa è spattacolare. Lo consiglio.
