Our 5-day stay (half board) was a very pleasant experience. The hotel and rooms are nice and clean, with an almost newly-built look and a quiet, no-frills interior. Dinner is excellent in its simplicity, based on the traditional Italian cuisine and quite plentiful, even for our ravenous Dutch appetite after many hours of walking the surrounding hills and forests. The...

The staff were all very attentive and helpful, excellent service! The rooms were in excellent condition and always clean. The owners stayed up late to receive us (we got lost a few times trying to find the hotel). They also helped us next morning with directions to Florence and provided with us an excellent breakfast. Hoping to go back and...

I'm not sure I know where to begin. Our experience here has left us with wonderful memories of the managers, staff and the location.

Very nice hotel. Very quiet rural location. Directly across from picturesque Abbey. In the middle of a National Park area. Be sure to have a good map to find it. 3,000 ft elevation makes it much cooler than Florence. We were there in May, may be much more popular in summer.

The Staff were excellent (they spoke very good English, much better than my Italian), the hotel is in a beautiful part of the...

We stayed a couple of nights with a group for a wedding. The place is very beautiful, the hotel in itself is nice, but the owners are not at the standard to manage an hotel. They will not take care of you, you'll find dirty towels and air conditioning not working but they'll find every reasons to ask you more...
