great place. very central to all of Tuscany sites. will stay there again. internet was free and fast. wish the property or booking manager would have highlighted the fact that you should buy your own food for breakfast 'right away'. between early closing and days off, places to buy things late in the day get few and far between. the staff were very helpful and kind. the restaurant chef was generous with portions and lemoncello.
"The castle was absolutely amazing. They have a bus stop out the front which will take you to Florence for 10 euro return in 50 mins. The dinner was fabulous, cooked by Fabio, it was personal, delicious and something to remember. The staff there are very friendly helpful and relaxed. The pool is lovely and as we stayed in the Cardinals rooms, our rooms were palatial"
The propoerty can be difficult to find but, once there, you will not be disappointed. It is a gorgeous property, and you will feel you have been transported back several hundred years when you stay there.
