“Beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

First off I have to say this place is beautiful. It's out of a story book. Seeing the rolling hills of tuscany. Like being in a movie! Believe it or not we stayed here for 2 nights while "visiting florence" each day we drove into florence (30min drive) with a car and every day we looked forward to returning here and getting away from the hussle and bussle of the city. It's so serene. The hotel/villa is beautiful. Staff is very nice. The young gentlemen (cant recall his name - claudio? ) that did the wine tasting was wonderful. very helpful and extremely knowledge. Now the one negative. The bed. It's horrible. I think the floor would have been more comfortable. We called and asked if ALL beds were this stiff and or if they had different mattresses. They looked at us like we were crazy lol. Also our room was above the dinning hall so in the morning we would get woken up when they were setting up for breakfast. Other than that everything else was great. The rooms could use a modernization, however they were clean and thats all that matters. There were a lot of older couples (esp germans!) there. My girlfriend and I were definitely the youngest there. 30 & 40's

Room Tip: dont get a room above the dinning hall.

From the moment we arrived by a regional bus from Florence (it dropped us off at the hotel driveway), my husband and I and another couple knew we had made a good choice. The hotel has several cozy sitting areas and fabulous views of the Tuscan countryside. Our corner room (and bath) was quite large (a nice change from the tiny rooms in Venice and Rome) and definitely worthy of a Conde Naste designation as a "Room With A View"! Our king bed was quite comfy. One oddity - the room temperature is controlled at the front desk. Even though it was too cold to swim in September, we enjoyed relaxing by the pool, mesmorized by the panoramic views and colorful sunsets. We enjoyed our leisurely dinners, especially the truffle pasta, parmegiano risotto, and the beef tenderloin fillet with a chianti reduction sauce. But best of all was the staff. Max made our stay memorable - he took care of us as if he were our own personal concierge. Upon arrival, we asked how to get to Panzano and he arranged for transportation to and from Panzano so we could visit the famous Dario's butcher shop and have lunch at his MacDario's rooftop restaurant - a side-trip we highly recommend. We also recommend taking the Tuscan Cooking Class at the hotel. Max and the chef, Paolo, gave us their whole attention as they introduced us to the workings of the hotel kitchen and the wonders of Tuscan cooking. After we helped prepare the food, they served us the multi-course meal, with appropriate wines, on the restaurant patio - what a perfect way to end our Tuscan adventure.

If you are traveling through Tarvarnelle, this is the place to stay. From the moment that we walked through the door we felt that we were the most important people in the world. The staff was friendly, helpful, and a joy to be around. They welcomed us with a taste of wine from the area, and built a fire for us to sit around to enjoy it. The food is prepared fresh, and the chef came out to talk to us. Our waiter, was a lot of fun and helped us with our choices, he had a great sense of humor. I would recommend this place to everyone.
So a special thanks to our chef, Alessio, the reception, Niccolo, our waiter Claudio, and to the food manager, Massimiliano you have made our stay unforgettable.

The view from our hotel looked out to San Gimignano. We had a fantastic visit with great staff, perfect views, friendly staff and very convenient. We walked into town a couple times and had a great experience there too. Highly recommend this location for anyone wanting a great experience in Tuscany.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has a great view.

We have been in Tuscany for the 2nd time, the hotel is in a perfect location between Siena, Firenze and San Gimignano. The room was perfect, and we had a lovely view from our big terrace. The food is good, the wines are perfect, try out with Massimo, he will give you a wine tasting where you can 't refuse him to buy wines from the Chianti at honest prices.
We had a lovely holiday and will definitely go back. We travel a lot over the world, and when you are in Tuscany just make sure you go there. The only thing for imporvement (we mentioned also to them) was the cold swimming pool. Perhaps next time they will have done something about that. It was really too cold .

Room Tip: Junior suite 223 is perfect !!!!

Very well located to tour Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. Hotel in general is OK, service at front desk is very good the rest of the staff is mostly very young and less experienced. Pool is unheated and very cold even in a very hot day. Unfortunate because the view from the pool is fabulous. They have a gentlemen who arranges the chairs at the pool at the end of the day, he actually removed my sons towel from a long chair and took the chair away to place it back, and he had 2 people move from their chairs on the grass and replaced their chairs because he needed to place those back on the pool deck. Never seen such unprofessionalism!!! Restaurant is good but overpriced and don't rely on the wine prices they showed you in the Cantina if you go to the restaurant, they mark them up but you only find out when you get the bill. Carpets in the hallways are dirty and washroom a little small and TV in room is old and could use a flat screen.

The hotel is like a jewelry box itself and with its charm. All inclusive for the best relax and enjoyment. All details are perfectly together. The team of the hotel is adoirable, they all day smile, and ready for duty as soon as you wish. As our experiences are faking, and time goes by we will be there next year to refresh our dreams. The hotel is centrally located in Chianti land therefore perfect to make roundtrips easily.

Room Tip: good size, and well furnished.
