This is a stunning hotel based on a former abbey, with beautifully maintained grounds and charming rooms. The Tuscan countryside provides a worthy setting for this jewel, providing stunning vistas all around its hillside location. In addition to the grounds there is a beautiful "orangerie" building where guests can go to enjoy a bottle of wine while browsing the books and artwork housed there, or play the grand piano underneath the soaring, fabric-decorated ceiling.
Breakfast was delicious, offering a variety of local meats and produce. In November the dining room is normally closed for dinner, but the staff helpfully provided a meat, cheese, and bread platter on our first night. In fact most Tuscan restaurants seem to be closed in November, and we found ourselves shopping for dinner at a grocery store one night.
