What a Discovery … Calamidora Hotel!
We stayed five nights as part of celebrating 30 years of marriage. It was my first time to Italy. The hotel is attractive and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, polite and went the extra mile. Our room was lovely with plenty of space and cleaned daily. The breakfast was excellent just what we needed to start the day! We were staying on B&B basis.
The hotel itself is just off of a main road but once through the gates you can't hear local traffic. The hotel is on a large site and you enter through a large car park. The local Lidl supermarket is only 5 minutes away, if you need anything. This lovely hotel was a great location to discover part of Tuscany. During our short stay we visited Lucca, (5 star), Pisa and Florence (4 star). All these places are breath-taking and need further visits. The hotel is in a strategic location and perfect to explore the area by car.
The first night we ate at the local pizza restaurant, simple and filling. However, let me mention two others that stand out. The first was the Ristorante Calandrino. It was superb! The service excellent and the food brilliant. Don’t let the outside put you off! This is a restaurant not to miss if you are in the area. The food is very special, the atmosphere good, and the service is first class! Coming to Tuscany? It will be worth the journey and such a great experience! The second is ‘the Ristorante I Maggi’ in Buti, just a few miles from the hotel! We had a beautiful dinner here with 4 courses. It is tricky to find, but worth the excursion. I was delighted with my meal. The first course was simple but creative for an authentic taste of Italy! Next, a lovely selection of cold meats. The main course was a delicious piece of tuna steak! Finally, a wonderful desert to send me back to hotel happy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The ambience was special being both old and new together. What a great evening to round off our holiday. We were looking for Italian food so wouldn’t recommend the American Diner near the Hotel. Great Hotel and a great area!
