The location of this place is exceptional and the 1000 year old building, translated as " The abbey in the field of Lions" is beautiful, and has received some substantial funding to bring it up to it's present condition.
We traveled with some friends to this "Hotel" recently, but on our arrival found that the three restaurants advertised there were not open !!!
The reception staff were most apologetic and endeavored to placate us by giving us room upgrades which we were pleased with.
The lack of availability of food, other than at breakfast time, and no bar facilities meant that we had to eat out each evening but on a few occasions they recommended restaurants and provided a taxi free to and from them.
Our suite was fantastic - (reportedly George Cloony had stayed there) how true that is of course, is not known.
The Tuscany area is beautiful and we visited many places nearby including Arezzo, Siena and Cortona, a lovely hillside town giving beautiful views of the whole area.
There are a number of restaurants nearby we visited. See separate reports to check their ratings.More
