Accommodating staff, great breakfast included and just a couple of blocks from the center of this delightful, magical city center. You will want to take a cab from the train station which the staff will procure. However....beware! 12 EURO for the trip from the station to the hotel but 20 EURO on the return trip.

We spent 2 1/2 days in this gorgeous out of the way hotel/B&B. The food was so delicious, we couldn't stop eating. Our rooms were well acquainted with all the amenities and the grounds were lovely. However, I think the best part of the visit was getting to know our host, David. He made every second of the visit memorable...

We stayed here in March. The grounds are perfectly manicured and there is apparent attention to every detail! David the owner is most gracious and went above and beyond the call of duty when he retrieved an earring that went down the sink. We ate at the restaurant our first night and the meal was delicious and the wine made...

On my recent tour in Tuscany, I stayed in several enjoyable inns that thanks were farmer houses and wineries. My favorite by far was Relais la Corte Dei Papi.
