Our favourite rooms
If you want to spread yourselves elegantly across two big bedrooms, book a Club House Suite, which span 80sq m and boast a hillside-surveying terrace. You can feel fairly independent while you’re here, thanks to the hob-equipped kitchenette, and there’s a little living room with a sofa and TV. Decor is Tuscan rustic: wooden furniture, countryside hues.
There’s a large outdoor pool surrounded by gorgeous countryside, designed with families in mind and open from May to September. The pool has a shallow end, but there's no lifeguard so keep a watchful eye on little Smiths; there’s also a little garden with sun loungers and parasols. Families can also use the pool at L'Andana.
The sleek spa at L’Andana has a range of tempting Espa beauty treatments, a, black-slate hot bath, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool and a Jacuzzi overlooking the gardens.
Sign up for one of the great cooking classes, led by chefs from L'Andana's team.
Canine companions can join you for €20 a night; dog bowls are provided, but bring anything else required of you by pooch. See more pet-friendly hotels in Tuscany.
Cots (free) and extra beds (€50 a night) for under-7s can be added to rooms.
The hotel has a brilliant kids club, a family-friendly outdoor pool, pretty green grounds and some sociable sitting areas where you can read or play board games. At next-door sister hotel L’Andana, you'll find the spa, golf course, pool and a brace of restaurants: one casual; one formal.
