There was a misunderstanding about breakfast. We stayed in 7 different hotels / resorts / apartments during our holiday, and I probably researched 50 more. At some, breakfast was included. At others, it wasn't, but I simply didn't recall which was which. At every other place we stayed, we were told clearly at check-in what the breakfast policies were. Not here, unfortunately (and my wife speaks Italian). I even went back to the office to ask about breakfast after we'd moved into our room, and my understanding after talking to the lady at the front desk was that it was included with our apartment (for which we paid 780 Euros for 5 nights, by the way). When it came time to check out, they wanted to charge us 7 Euros per person (2 of us) per 4 breakfasts, for a total charge of 56 additional Euros. Sorry, but the breakfast wasn't worth 7 Euros, and we would have fixed our own in our apartment's kitchen (as we did at the next place we stayed) had they been clear about the price. Rather than quickly offer to cancel the breakfast as a gesture of goodwill, the lady at check-out insisted on charging us. I refused to pay. What had been an otherwise very nice stay ended on a sour note for no good reason, in my opinion.
Very easy to get around Chianti as well as to reach Siena, Florence, Arezzo and Crete. Excellent base for exploring the beautiful area with scenic views, parking and a nice pool.
