Firstly, Massimo & Daniele could not have been kinder or more gracious! They are both lovely men committed to bringing their guests great service. In everything they do you can see touches of beauty and taste. The gardens are well tended. The rooms are immaculately clean. The breakfast table is abundant. The coffee is delivered with a flourish. We stayed two nights and we were relaxed. This is a place to relax. The view is spectacular. We brought pizza up from the Ulivo Rosso restaurant at the bottom of the hill and just gazed out from the mountaintop where the hotel is perched. Lovely. And the guests were wonderful to share a table with.
Our room, the lemon room is built partially into the hillside and we had to leave the windows open to alleviate the musty smell that permeated the room. It wasn't from lack of cleaning, I think it's the nature of an 800 year old room.
For us, being so far away from the city of Florence, didn't work. You must drive to town on a very steep, gravel driveway and then it's at least 10 minutes to the train station. Then wait for the next train to town. The train is at least 30 minutes. Since we were on a road trip, we had a car with us which is expensive to park in the city. We thought staying outside of the city would be better, but then there's the cost of the train for two people everyday. It was an inconvenience for us, but I'm sure it wouldn't bother other folks.
