We had a good stay and excellent food. Firstly the direction, as the hotel is hard to find. From Sinalunga on the “superstrada” in the direction of Siena, leave the highway on the height of AGIP fuel station. Behind the fuel station on a small hill stands the hotel, a bit lost in the countryside. A car is an absolute must when staying in the hotel.
The rooms are newly renovated, are spacious, simply but comfortably furnished, all are a/c equipped. Wifi connection is free and fast. The bathroom is clean, spacious and furnished with quality toiletries. We could not hear from our room noise from the super highway. The traditional restaurant serves regional food. All freshly prepared, slow cooking, with fresh products from the nearby farms. The quality is excellent. Especially on Sunday lunch time a reservation is required, as the restaurant is popular with the locals. The price level is attractive.
For breakfast homemade bread, croissants and various cakes were on offer. On demand eggs with lard and ham are prepared.
We appreciated the warm welcome by the owner who received us at our arrival with a glass of wine and some fresh fruits from the garden. When in the region, this place will be the place to return.
