Visiting with Nadia and Felice at the Albergo Roberta is like coming home to family. The hospitality is warm and caring and personal, the food is to die for, made with love. Personal travel concerns are never a problem because the hotel staff takes it as a personal challenge to work them out for you, as well as to provide directions, discounts and contacts for all the interesting attractions in the area. I visit each year as part of a music conference in the lovely town of Sarteano, and each year Nadia and Felice go out of their way to help all the conference participants get to know each other. They solve problems of all kinds for the members, spend a great deal of time pairing roommates carefully to cut down costs for the workshop members but to foster happy and comfortable living conditions for everyone. And they prepare joint meals and special events for them and attend their workshop concert with their whole extended family.
The hotel is an easy walk from the historic 16th century piazza with a restored theater and Etruscan museum. Tours of the 9th century castle are also available as are trips to local spas, swimming pools, and bus trips to other area historic Tuscan wine towns. Each year at the end of July, beginning of August, the town holds a medieval festival with specially-trained flag-throwing team demonstrations and contests and an arts and crafts fair
A return trip is a heart-warming reunion because Nadia and Felice remember their guests and welcome them back like long lost family members. A trip to the Albergo Roberta is more than a hotel stay, it is the beginning of a friendship.
