I wholeheartedly agree with the other reviewers. INcredible vistas, nice breakfast spread, and very welcoming host. Lucia went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. We actually stayed in the annex, where there are often fewer people so it's more quiet. While 10 to 15 min walk from the main place (and the pool and breakfast), it's just a couple of minutes to drive.
The rooms there are new (only 1.5 years old). A bit dark and lacking much thought in decoration, but still very comfortable.
Also a good location to explore other nearby towns and Siena.
