Very expensive for what it is. Inattention to detail - poor fitting shutters, mould around bath sealant. Vending - machine coffee at breakfast which for Italy is well below standard! The clear loser in all our stays in Italy to date.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room was quiet and comfortable and food was first class
Good service and friendly people
The full dinner we had at the hotel our first night has still not been beaten after being in Italy for a week - it was perfectly prepared and an extremely reasonable price. Breakfasts were very good too. The garden was gorgeous, and every room has a view of Tuscan hills and countryside - some views are better than others of course. Best views are from the south-facing balcony rooms.
The Le Renaie closes up a little early in the evening - we were always rushing to get back to the hotel before the gate was closed at night. We do realize we were the exception to the rule - most guests were a bit older, and we never ran into anyone else awake (other than one staff person) when we returned about midnight.
The staff was very friendly and helpful
