We stayed two nights at this hotel. You must have a car to stay here. It was quaint and beautiful. We felt at peace the moment we arrived. We lounged by the pool, drinking wine and enjoying the view all afternoon. The sitting room was cozy, the
dining room was elegant, the terrace was refreshing, the pool was fabulous, the grounds were well-manicured. The breakfast was an event as everyone sat together on the terrace to enjoy the view and the fresh air. (The coffee wasn't so great, but then, it wasn't at any of our hotels.) There was no hairdryer in the room, but I'm sure they would have had one at the front desk. The beds were a bit hard. There is no wi-fi or internet available. This was a great place to stay if you want to relax for a day, but it was also easy access to all of Chianti in Tuscany. We went to Radda, Siena, Castellina, and Panzano, and loved them all.

If you eat red meat, you MUST go to "the butcher" in Panzano, Dario Cecchini. It's a total tourist thing to do, but so worth it. There are only two seatings, 7 and 9, and you sit at a large table with other diners. It's a set menu that is essentially all you can eat and all the wine you can drink, for only 30 Euros. The food was fantastic, the wine was free-flowing (including grappa and an Italian liqueur), and the company was fabulous!
