The rooms are simple but cozy and impeccably clean with a nicely updated bathroom. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The inn...

You are welcomed to the restaurant, and the waiter seems genuinely concerned, by asking if you are pleased with each course. The menu is full of interesting choices. The chef pushes the creative and artistic side. After reviewing the amazing menu, we...

We had a fantastic lunch here last Sunday and everything was delicious. The service was very good and the staff very friendly. My husband ordered the tiramisu which he loved. Great spot for a meal in a more upscale atmosphere.

Only a few (8 ?)reasonably priced, quiet and very comfortable rooms. Samuele is helpful and friendly. Breakfast options are plentiful, tasty and fresh. This is a great value in a superb setting. Loved our five nights here as a base to explore Umbria and Tuscany
