Our favourite rooms
We lost our heart to the one-bedroom Independent Villa, which occupies its own little patch of hotel grounds, flanked by olive trees and overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Because the villa is set apart from the main building, bedding down here feels romantic and private. That said, the Deluxe Rooms have nut-brown parquet floors, wooden-beamed ceilings and sweeping views…
There’s a beautiful infinity pool set in the herb-packed gardens. The hotel has pool toys for little ones to frolic with.
Leave space in your suitcase for bottles of the hotel’s own olive oil and wine, but don’t forget your bottle opener and picnic rug.
There’s no lift, but the nimble bellboys will deliver your luggage upstairs if needed.
The hotel has a very grown-up feel, but well-behaved little Smiths are welcome. Babysitting can be arranged. There’s no children’s menu, but the chef is happy to adapt his dishes for younger palates (pasta with tomato sauce, for example).
