Our room was large and it was very pleasant. Comfy bed, nice bathroom, actually equipped for disabled; tile floor, A/C and heat controlled by owner, good parking. Good digs! WiFi was very spotty and non-existent many times. Luckily we did not use the kitchen because it had very few amenities to make food, small fridge on the floor(?). One window uncovered so felt like a fishbowl. Grounds are pleasant and pool area inviting, except for the September lows in the high 40's temps.
The location and entry was a double edged sword. Being 6km from the village of Volterra, it did require a 10-12 minute drive to reach and the village has no free parking ($2.25/hour and up). The location is remote, very dark and bumpy/rutted/dirt road to reach for the last 2km.
However, it was Allessia's devotion (and great personality) to feed us a royal breakfast every day that just sealed the deal. Served to you in the garden or on the grass in the sun was nice. Her homemade cakes, dry hard cheese, proscuitto, salami, hard rolls with tender centers, homemade jam, yogurt with fresh berries, fresh grapes from their vines and fresh figs from their tree made every morning a delight. Thank you Alessia.
We stayed a week and enjoyed the location for visiting San Gimignano, Siena, Lajatico, Monteriggioni and two nearby vineyards.
