Management response:

Your review is totally unfair: we did offer you extra heating that you were not willing to pay. Heating is not inlcluded in our prices. All the rest is simply not true: next time you are in Tuscany you should book a 5 stars hotel. more

Very nice outdoor places, like the pool and the... more
