Had an amazing time. The hotel has possibly the most beautiful setting of all the Belmonds we have stayed in with a wonderful view of the rolling Tuscan countryside and the local town. The room was quite simply amazing, set over two floors it was bigger than our flat at home. We travelled with a two year old who they made feel very welcome and gave us a complementary pizza making class which she loved. On practicalities you have to take a car as lots of wonderful things to see nearby.

This hotel was an amazing experience for my whole family. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by warm smiles and almost immediately escorted to the room(after the tour of course). The room itself was comfortable and had the best view of the mountains and hills. If you stay in a villa bare in mind that it is a short walk up a steep hill to get to the main building. The service was okay although it took 45 minutes for a kettle and 10 minutes for a slice of lemon. The food was great but I would recommend staying for lunch and going out for dinner. I also recommend the lasagna at lunch and the pizza. Also this hotel had lots and lots and lots of activities such as painting,cooking,horse riding,safaris,hot air ballooning and i could go on and on. Overall this hotel was a great experience with all the walks,views and well just the whole countryside. I would definitely recommend going to this hotel.
