A fantastic place with a great view overlooking wine yards and olive grooves. Lovely pool, but too many children. Nice and kind staff and lovely restaurant. The BBQ night could be organised a bit better. The rooms are nice and clean, with all you could as for, but it would have been nice with an outdoor area. Stayed at 1st floor.
Grocery opportunities in Poggibonsi and a lot of nice wine places in every direction.
Would like to return.
