We stayed here for four nights as the second leg of a Riviers trip combined with Florence. The hotel is below the town which necessitates a steep walk or trusting the erratically timed local service - see below. Our room overlooking the swimming pool was large and comfortable with good distant views. The food was well prepared. There were two menus, fish and meat but we found that we could alternate starters mains and deserts from one to another with no problem. The wines were well chosen Tuscans and were priced at about what you would expect in a hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. On our free day we went on the local bus into Volterra on the rickety local bus but misread the return times. Four of us were together with two using sticks for knee problems and not fancying the long steep downhill walk. Failing to interest the local taxi for so "short" a journey, the T.I. phoned our hotel who kindly sent the hotel minibus to pick us up. Very impressive service, and overall a good experience.
