This was the perfect base for our family holiday. The hotel is immaculately clean, comfortable and spacious. Because there are only ten rooms, you often have the pool or the lounge to yourself. The vibe is low-key and comfortable - genuinely relaxing and charming! The staff are friendly and knowledgable, they helped make our holiday our best ever and we owe them our thanks. Definitely ask Lorenzo to arrange a wine tour, or other visits in the region. We arrived late on the first night and the food Angela made up for us was the best meal of the holiday (which is saying something for this part of the world). The centre of Florence is a short drive or bus away, there's a supermarket (and bus stop) a 10 minute walk away, if that's your sort of thing, or you can just relax at the hotel in perfect luxury.

Lovely boutique hotel with 10 bedrooms. Quiet when we stayed. Continental breakfast included, but no restaurant for other meals. Decor is impeccable.

I wanted to UPDATE my review from when we stayed there for a week 2012, We were in room #2, which was a beautiful room. Perfect for 2 of us. This boutique hotel was just fabulous and did not disappoint. I golfed at the famous and historic Ugolino golf course. The hotel seems to be connected with golf. Perfect immaculate grounds. Fabulous rooms. But....I am not sure of the window situation in other rooms on the other sides of the hotel. This review update is based on our stay in Room #2 and from my many photos of that room.After looking at these photos and recalling memories of the room, I saw that the room has terra cotta barriers on all the windows. It's like a cell block. The room door is the only way out. You are total shut in the room with decorative cement blocks. Other than the door you could never get out in an emergency. In my mind (then and now,) this is a FIRE TRAP, a REAL POTENTIAL hazard. Maybe they changed it (requires a lot of demo and construction) since then. But CHECK YOUR ROOM WINDOWS and change rooms if you see decorative terra cotta blocks over your window(s). Ask about fire safety. The safety laws in Italy should not allow this. But then again, this is Italy.
