    Beautiful rustic Tuscan resort!

    Great resort hotel in the heart of Tuscany. This hotel was fantastic. Close to wineries and a lot of other fantastic places in the regions. Amazing staff with great attention to detail. The outdoor pool was amazing and had fantastic views of the hillsides, all of which are pure Tuscany. I can not recommend this place more if you are looking for a nice place to stay and relax in the Tuscany region of Italy.

  • 6.0.Good

    The setting of the hotel is stunning and the property itself is beautiful. Staff were very friendly. This makes up somewhat for the "tired" condition of the rooms (our bathroom had an outdated jacuzzi tub and the knob on the heating towel rack was broken so we couldn't warm up the towels. There were also some issues with service. We ordered room service coffee and mint tea and we received every conceivable tea but no mint. Dinner service was also a little off in the supposed Michelin restaurant. We wanted pasta just with tomato sauce for a vegan in our party, but it arrived with the fish sauce. We also ordered mint tea in the restaurant after dinner but were served Roibos. It's little things like this that may not seem like a big deal, but that make the difference between an average hotel and an excellent one. Also, the coffee at breakfast was not very good, especially for an Italian establishment.

    Nice hotel

    Loved the hotel but the bed was not comfortable

  • 2.0.Poor

    The hotel staff is rude and unhelpful. The rooms are in serious need of renovation and the bed was as a hard as a rock. This was such a disappointing experience for a honeymoon couple. We had a problem exchanging our American money and they were not helpful until someone from home called to complain about their rudeness and lack of concern. Even after complaining the staff on that day we left refused to help me change my train tickets. He suggested I call and when I said I could not from my phone from the states because it didn’t work he didn’t offer to call for me or ask if I would like to use the hotel phone. We feel we were treated badly for being young and American. Do not stay here! I promise you will be disappointed!

    Not to be missed in Tuscany!

    The hotel is, simply put, phenomenal! It is quaint and steeped in antiquity that oozes Tuscan charm! We had a deluxe double that had a sitting room and a separate bedroom that were both exceptionally comfortable! The hotel amenities were superb with views extending out to the Tuscan countryside and several vineyards well within site. We ate at Il pievano and the meal was without a doubt the best meal I've had in my life. The attention to detail and the service was truly second to none. Dont debate, just book the room!
