Near San Miniato, the villa hosts many special group events such as wedding receptions, business gatherings,etc. A historic building full of nooks and crannies, it is also a hotel, well worth the trip. A complimentary bottle of prosecco greeted us. We couldn't believe the standard of service and the fabulous breakfast all at a low off season rate. Magnificent building...

You have to understand when you come here, you are not coming to a luxury property. It's a beautiful estate that has been kind of let go. Rooms are kind of run down, and there is just ok communication between guest and front desk. This said, the location was really good as was their breakfast selection. We wouldn't stay here...

Stayed for a couple of nights on my tour of Tuscany after reading positive reviews from other travellers. The staff was very non-intruding and speaks english well. The building itself is like taken out of a Tuscany postcard, located in the hillside with surrounding trees and the seductive mixture of oker paint and red bricks. Free wifi in the room,...

Situated half an hour from Pisa Airport, this is the ideal place to stay and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. We arrived after having car problems on the Siena - Pisa autostrada, with a tyre puncture, and Cesare the Manger was wonderful. He made phone calls to help us, and was very professional in all he did., he was so kind....

Historical beautiful Villa in the Hills of San Miniato (Pisa). Excellent location either for country side than visiting cities like Florence (30 minutes), Pisa( 15 minutes)! The building is very beautiful with lots of rooms, halls that make you feel living in a castle. Restaurant is simply delicius! Taste the trufles (typical from Sam Miniato) specialities!

I was only there for an overnight for business. Did not get much of a change to explore the area but the views and ambiance are incredible. Hard to find. It is off Castel Vecchio look for the sings, up the unpaved road and there you will find this gem. Restaurant is good, rooms are ok, bathrooms are updated.

Service is excellent as the staff is very welcoming and remembered us from our honeymoon with a hug and a hello. We had a bottle of champagne in the room when we arrived, bottled water and a bottle of Villa Sonnino wine as we departed. The room was again large and accommodating with a beautiful view of the vineyards from...

This hotel is amazingly well equipped, professionally managed and has amazing charm and feel of Italian Villa. Staff is extremely professional and hardworking. Since we arrived late, restaurant was open until 00:30. Food and wine were exceptional. Breakfast is not going to win any special award for variety and assortment, but again, it was very well organized and everything tasted...
