The owners speak some English, and Italian of course. This place is ideal for couples seeking a quiet getaway in the heart of Chianti. Surprisingly for a small place, you can eat a la carte here every day. The owners cook wonderful food and of course you can select a bottle of wine from the small but thoughtful wine list, or experiment with a selection of glasses from different bottles. They also cook at lunchtime and this includes typical pasta and regional dishes, prepared meats and snacks. You can also be served by the pool and enjoy your lunch or dinner with wonderful views. Children are welcome, but this place tends to attract more couples and the general theme is towards couples.

Everything was just perfect. The place, the room, facilities and the delicious food. The two hosts was very friendly and helpful and their little daughter Laura was just adorable. The dirt road that leads to the place is quite dusty, but at least we can brag with having the dirtiest car ;)
We can only recommend this place!
A small and very beautiful hotel. Kind staff and very beautifully decorated rooms. Here was peace and quiet. The pool was fantastic, only problem was that it was very solitary.
