Perfect room, excellent and varied breakfasts, warm hosts and special requests handled flawlessly! Maria and her staff made our stay wonderful, comfortable and memorable! Picture perfect countryside and short drives to some of the best vineyards in Chianti! Simply a must!

Our room with a balcony overlooking the Chianti countryside. Wonderful fresh made breakfasts. Wine when we arrived. Loved Mary and Maria and their attention to detail. Local restaurants for dinner just in the courtyard next to Palazzo Malaspina. Our friends recommend this place to us and I would recommend to others. Love, Love, Loved it.

Totally amazing! This hotel as it actually maintains a very high standard. The hosts always do that little bit extra in order to make you feel especially welcome. The breakfast has the same quality as the accommodation itself. The cappuccino is lovely ... The village and its surroundings are just what you would expect from Tuscany. We will return to...

A super B and B made even better by the attentiveness of Maria and her staff.

Very friendly staff, can give informations on what do discover around. B&B is a Historic building in the very centre. A few nice little restaurants around with high quality food (and wine). In good weather conditions the tables are placed on the village square. ATM close by.
