This hotel is in a small historic town of Filigne in the Chianti Region, only around 30 minutes drive to Florence. The hotel was once a noble villa mainly from the 14th Century. It has been restored and maintained in a very high quality and keeps its historic feel.
The gardens, foyer and surrounds are extremely beautiful and well appointed. There is an indoor heated pool and a gym that you can use but if you want to go into the hot tub, sauna you will need to pay 24E for a couple! That was kind of disappointing.
The breakfast was wonderful, including hot foods, the best in Italy! The staff are also very accommodating.
Our room was quite spacious and well-appointed. The bed was too hard for me but I requested a mattress topper and was given one, which helped. The biggest issue for our room was it's location. It was right by a passage way that was used to get to the breakfast room and because the floors were terracotta we heard quite a bit of noise in the morning outside of our room and in the room above us.
The restaurant on the premises is definitely worth a visit. Yum!!!More
