The BSF property is exquisite - a quaint hamlet turned hotel, the grounds are perfectly kept and the views are beautiful. Our standard deluxe room was very comfortable and the bathroom was great. It's also in a good location for exploring eastern Tuscany. Service, for the most part, was quite good - though several younger staff struggled and seemed nervous dealing with customers. Breakfast is substantial and good. The fine dining restaurant is pricey but very good. The more casual restaurant was good, not great - it's also quite expensive. A forewarning, the cooking class is exceedingly expensive and more of a demonstration than hands on, although the chef was very nice and the price includes dinner. The food by the pool is designed to suite Americans/Brits, which is a little disappointing (maybe Italians don't like eating poolside). The wine they make is excellent, we bought several bottles, and the nicer olive oil is quite good. As other reviewers have noted, everything is expensive. BSF probably has a little way to go in perfecting everything, though it's certainly a luxury hotel. I know there are plenty of other similar 5 star resorts in the area; while it has tons of character, it needs to find something that truly separates it from the others.
