We were booked into this hotel for two nights by my son who was flying out with his family to join us in Italy but, unfortunately, could only make it for the second night. The wonderful staff, due to the circumstances, kept the room for him and only charged him for the one night that he was there despite the very late notice of plan change.
We had the first afternoon/night to ourselves and herself relaxed comfortably by the pool. The room we had was above the dining room and, in typical farm house fashion, was pretty dark with small windows. It was a very good size lounge dining area (which also had cooking facilities) and a bedroom with separate bathroom.
The only bar (where only two people can sit) is part of a not large dining room - it must be said that there is plenty of room immediately outside but that evening was quite windy and also not very warm, Those that did venture outside to eat were either forced to seek warmer attire or come inside.
We had lunch and dinner there and were not exactly overwhelmed with either meal but the wonderful staff yet again brought pleasure to it.
Breakfast is a buffet and is excellent made even more pleasurable by being able to sit outside to enjoy it with a very helpful and kind lady bustling around to get anything you required.
The second night, my son and his two grandchildren arrived quite late and the girls at Reception were again very helpful in pointing us in the right direction to get some pizza to bring back and eat on the terrace outside their rooms.
It is about 40 minutes into Florence but to me that would be the only reason for a return visit. We made a couple of visits to Borgo San Lorenzo but that alone would certainly not make a return visit a realistic event!
