Very nice hotel. Very quiet rural location. Directly across from picturesque Abbey. In the middle of a National Park area. Be sure to have a good map to find it. 3,000 ft elevation makes it much cooler than Florence. We were there in May, may be much more popular in summer.

I booked this hotel for an Anniversary weekend. I emailed the hotel and asked if it would be possible for flowers to be in the room as a surprise, this was carried out without fuss or worry. The Staff were excellent (they spoke very good English, much better than my Italian), the hotel is in a beautiful part of the world, out of the way and quiet. The room was clean and tidy and kept that way by daily cleaning. The food served was of an excellent standard. We were given a lot of advice about where to visit and the best and cheapest way of doing that trip, such as taking the train to Florence instead of driving and paying lots of parking fees. Overall I am very impressed with everything about this Hotel and would gladly recommend it to anyone and will hopefully be going back in the near future.

We stayed a couple of nights with a group for a wedding. The place is very beautiful, the hotel in itself is nice, but the owners are not at the standard to manage an hotel. They will not take care of you, you'll find dirty towels and air conditioning not working but they'll find every reasons to ask you more money, and, basically, is expensive. The restaurant, however, is very good. - tripsdvisor staff, you can correct language mistakes, thank you
