It is a beautiful establishment wjth numerous public rooms which don't seem to have focus. There are no lifts and most of the bedrooms seem to be upstairs. Ours was a bit spartan without in room wifi or a useable desk. There is a pool and lawns and a very attractive central courtyard with a well with, well, water. Beds were comfortable and the bathrooms roomy and good. Service is slow but gracious.
The expense is not just the room price, but services. A glass of squeezed orange juice is 10 Euros, most of the wines over 100 Euros and laundry a whopping 16 Euros per shirt for 24 hour service. The cost of cabbing into Siena for a superior meal in an excellent restaurant with better wine was less than half our small in house dinner the first night.
