This charming, tasteful and quiet hotel is just about as close as it gets to perfect. Its hidden away in the Tuscan countryside so is ideal for holiday where all you want to do is relax and recharge. Florence and Pisa are not far away if you must venture out but why bother?! The grounds are stunning with a large pool and lots of space so guests have plenty of room to enjoy the sun or the shade provided by trees and parasols. Breakfast and dinner are on a terrace overlooking the breathtaking Tuscan hills and so once again perfect for relaxing. The only criticism we have is that service is very slow, and whilst on the first night this seemed charming and allowed us to time to chat with the chef (and owner) who served us, on the second night it felt like they were just inefficient and that one waitress for 12 tables wasn't enough. This doesn't stop us thinking it was perfect but is just a shame that this lets them down, especially as the food is exceptionally good, cooked fromm their own organic produce. So if you do eat there be prepared for a long dinner, so best to start with a glass of chilled prosecco and chill out! There is also an airstrip if you want to take your own plane (!) - we took advantage of a 30 minute helicopter tour which was a real treat. All the staff are charming, warm and welcoming and made our stay just perfect.
