“Location is everything”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

We chose this hotel for our first holiday in Italy, largely based on trip advisor reviews and it's seemingly excellent location within the Tuscan Countryside.
We were not disappointed!
The frattoria and hotel stand atop a hill, with distant views over vIneyards and olive groves of Montepulciano and other lovely old hilltowns. The views are stunning, and the only sound is quite liable to be birdsong or on occasion the distant grumble of a tractor laden with freshly picked grapes.
The staff, the rooms and public areas are just fine, but a word of warning - the set dinner errs on the side of colossal, and if the lack of choice and size of portion is an issue for you, be prepared to drive a few miles in order to find an alternative dining venue.
That said, we would love to return. If tranquillity and rural beauty are your thing then this is the place for you.

We stayed here for a week in August 2013 as a family with our daughter. It is a very lovely building set in a great setting over looking countryside, rolling hills and vines. It is really rural, in fact quite tricky to find unless you have carefully programmed your sat-nav in advance.

The room was very plain but also comfortable, the beds were fine, we slept very well helped by the rural silence. The bathroom had a rather exotic shower with all sorts of side sprayers that the girls liked.

The pool is beautiful and a decent size, down the hill from the main building and a very quiet, there isn't a huge amount of shade but it is a lovely place to swim at the end of a day trekking round medieval hill towns. It was really hot (high 30s) while we were there so it was very welcome.

We ate in on three evenings, there is no menu so 'you get what you get' but they were really helpful in providing special menus for my wife who doesn't eat pork. The food was as good or better than the local restaurants we went to, and you get masses of food, too much for us.There is nowhere you can walk from here though so you have to drive if you don't eat in.

The wifi was a bit dodgy which drove my daughter a bit dotty but otherwise everything was lovely. If we return to Tuscany we may well stay here again.

Stayed here for 4nights, had a large room overlooking the vineyards. Staff really helpful, great pool. We ate in every night so that I did not have to drink and drive. The food was good and was different every night, the wines were good value and you can taste them every night before dinner which they did not charge for. they charged 25 euros for four courses and the wine started at 5 euros for a white wine, we drank the red wine and spent 12 to 16 euros a night for a bottle. There is large pool with plenty of sun beds and shade. We will go back again very central for seeing different parts of Tuscany and Umbria

Room Tip: If you want a large room book a suite there are 4 of them, it is very quiet so it does not matter wh...

What a surprise! We booked our room by looking on the internet. I thought we would be staying in a quaint farmhouse. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is a first rate, five star, villa. It is absolutely beautiful! The view from our room was so tranquil and lovely. Our daughter sat for the longest time by the large window in our room looking out at the beautiful view. The room was like one you would find in a five star hotel in the USA. The staff was very welcoming and accomodating. We had the dinner that was offered and it was outstanding! A great value! We were served antipasto and champagne, a three course dinner, wine, and dessert. It was delicious and served in a very elegant room. The cook was Patricia, the manager of the villa. After dinner we sat outside drinking wine and watching the stars. It was so quiet and peaceful. The only bad thing was that we had to leave after only one night. We could easily have spent a whole week there. (The wine from their vineyard was delicious also.)

We only stayed for one night, and wished that we stayed for a week. This is a super value, with a wonderful breakfast included. And the dinner on site was geat, and very reasonable, and their own wines are great. I had low expectations aboout the wine but was more than pleasantly surprised. They were so good that I brought six bottles home!

Room Tip: What a super place. Great food, super wine. beautiful location. A little difficult to find, but wort...

The place, the view, the staff, the food, the wine.. Everything is just perfect, except the weather (where it rained for 2 days). Luckily it was hot and sunny when we arrived, thus we were able to enjoy the pool on our first day. There was no wine open house wine tasting during our stay but staff were nice enough to propose available glasses of wine with our dinner. I would love to come back here.

We stayed at this hotel for six days to explore Umbria and Tuscany from there. The location was perfect. In the evening we went to Montepulciano, that is very close and has lots of nice spots to eat. The room was spacious and clean, the view of the fields with vines, olive trees and sunflowers was beautiful. After a hard day visit we could rest at the large pool. The owners were very helpful and friendly but speak little English (only Italian). They produce their own wine (Fattoria Del Cerro) that you can buy for low prices there. Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: choose room number 1 or 2
