We spent a week in a double room with additional child bed. Reception was great, detailed info with lots of good tips for the area, including picturesque off-the-beaten-track villages and some restaurants also frequented by the locals. We tried several of these during the week and they really were good! Room was simple but v. clean, beds comfortable, towels changed daily. Pool area has fantastic panoramic views over the olive orchard and across the barren, rolling Tuscan hills. Pool itself was perfect. Breakfast is excellent - fine home-baked cakes and bread and the tomato salad is a dream! All in all a great place to stay!
Walking up the steep hill to Volterra for dinner takes 20 mins and will keep you fit (we did it because we wanted to drink but not drive). Avoid walking up to town if you have young children though - for short stretches you have to use the busy main road with no pavement.
