    Nobody advised us about a birthday party in the restaurant who destroyed the magic atmosphere of the place. Noisy people until 1.00 am. I was looking for a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere and I found myself in the middle of a circus. Nobody apologies, totally unacceptable. No minibar in the room. Coffee at the bar made by a home Nespresso machine !!!!!!!!

    the location is really magic, far from the crowd and not so hard to find

    Beautiful location with stunning views across the Tuscan countryside. The accommodation is excellent and spotlessly clean. The hosts and staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served on a terrace overlooking the countryside with a good selection of delicious local bread and pastries, with excellent coffee. Dinner is served on the terrace by the pool and is a delightful experience with lovely seafood, local meats and fresh pasta being served. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

    Car parking can be a little awkward we were pleased we had a fiat 500! If you're booking also go for a pool view room as ours was a little noisy as breakfast was served directly above and the sound of people moving around was prevalent from about seven thirty onwards.

    Set in a stunning location with a beautiful pool this hotel is ideally situated for seeing the sights of Tuscany. Central to Pisa & Florence and with the train station 10 mins by car away. Beautiful breakfast with amazing value for money (I'd highly recommend the chocolate croissants). Kristina is extremely helpful with information, she was a fantastic help getting us the train info to Florence (20 mins away by train).

    Lovely stay not too far from Florence
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with older children
    • Small Double Room with Patio
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The bed was a bit hard and no extra pillows in the room. (2 for a double bed). The curtains were thin and did not block the sun well. We were told to show up for dinner at 8pm. At 9pm we were still waiting for the first course. This is not unheard of in Italy but difficult when traveling with kids. I think there was a large party that night that could have caused this as the meal the first night did not take this long. The third we went to a restaurant outside the hotel (which is at least a 10 min drive away. The location is a bit remote you will need a car.

    The setting was truly lovely, with a gorgeous view looking out over the pool. The breakfast and dinners were tasty and the staff friendly helpful, and welcoming. All in all it was a wonderful stay with happy memories.

    There was no visibility of food menus. There was no obvious signage advising that you have to ask for a kettle. Fridges in the apartment would be beneficial.

    The pool was awesome and the lights in the pool in the evening made it really nice. The music played throughout the day and evening was appropriate. The views were fabulous!

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    We loved the ambiance of this small-scale hotel. For us it was a perfect location to combine relaxing at a pefect/clean swimming pool with visiting Florence, Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano. The staff is professional, friendly and have a good knowledge of the interesting places/restaurants to visit in the area. The rooms are spotless and most have a stunning view over the valley of the River Arno. Perfect breakfast, sometimes lunch and a good homemade diner accompanied with interesting wines. All together an excellent price/quality. Preferably go by car so you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Parking next to the hotel is on a gentle slope, but if you manage to drive in Tuscany, you will survive parking as well ;-) The hotel was not fully booked yet, so they admitted locals at the swimming pool based on number of available sunbeds (locals need to pay entrance for the pool). So it gave us a feeling to be part of the Italian culture, but never had a feeling it was crowded. We will definitely come back to this hotel when visiting Tuscany.
