Mostly we enjoyed our hike around the vineyards and up to Montemerano. We were there at the end of October and wished that we had been told ahead of time that it was off season at the hotel. The pool, spa, restaurant were all closed.
During the past 41 years we have visited every region in Italy and stayed at some of the best hotels. Relais Villa Acquaviva now resides in our Pantheon of favorite hotels in the world. The setting in the Italian countryside is superb...you feel one with nature. The entire complex is thoughtfully integrated into the land and the rooms (we had three...one for ourselves, ages 71; our daughter and son-in-law; and two granddaughters, ages 12 and 14)are beautifully done with every amenity possible. The pool and tennis court are both top notch. We ate both nights at the hotel and the meals were, by every measure, gourmet. Our only regret: We only stayed for two nights, which we will remedy next year. thank you fabrizio! We only stayed two nights! There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area that one week is more appropriate!
peace and quite
My room was excellent (for one person) and breakfast was outstanding, particularly the wide choice including scrambled egg, cereals, croissants, toast, fresh bread, jams, honey, fruit and delicious freshly baked cakes. To eat well at the restaurant ie 3/4 courses costs 45 euros or more and wines (all from their own vineyards) range from 14 euros upwards. (We had just 2 courses from a la carte - ample - for around 25 - 35 euros plus coffee). Lovely location surrounded by their own vineyards, olive groves and attractive garden. Nice swimming pool. Lighting in the restaurant was a bit dim for us oldies!
Very nice hotel surrounded by vineyards and a beautiful, large garden with a great variety of threes and flowers. Nice pool area. very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent restaurant; the green homemade ravioli is alone worth killing for!
Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely surroundings and good pool area. Internet access. High standard of food and good breakfast selection. No daytime pool drinks or snack service available during second half of our stay (1st week Sept). Delicious fruit salad at breakfast seemed to stop after our second day. Our first room was dark and had very limited drawer space, but the hotel kindly moved us to to another superior room which was bright, excellent and made all the difference to our enjoyment..
The host of the hotel is very kind and symthetic.
The owners of the hotel were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, and they always went over and above the call of duty to ensure we enjoyed our stay! Can not praise them enough
Quiet, inviting Tuscan hills are the backdrop for this hotel. The host and hostess clearly have a passion for what they are doing and you, as guest, feel it warmly. Great attention to detail - in the room as well as at dinner. Molto grazie e a la prossima !
The owner could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Not only was Enrico a superb chef, he was also the perfect host. We would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for excellent cuisine and a superb base from which to explore South Eastern Tuscany. Nothing
staff -- very friendly and quite informative about what to do in the area which was helpful to us. Room decor very nice.
Located in lovely old village good food (breakfast & dinner) can cater for vegetarians
Wonderful place. Quiet, relaxing, amazing views on tuscany countryside. Only 10 minutes from Saturnia baths and close to many characteristic villages in the area. Perfect for relaxing but also quite good as a base to visit the area. Too many things to see, try to stay at least 3 nights. Breakfast included is a +++, the food was aboundant and just amazing! A bit difficult to find, but not a problem if you have a GPS, or follow google maps/indications, or ask locals!
quite convenient, easy with kids insects at the pool,we couldnt swim for we were continously under attack... maybe we weren't lucky on that day, but because of horses around...
It was homely and safe and ideal for long walks to the nearby villages. It was situated too far from the main towns and cities.
Very nice guy who owns the place! Not easy to find
Lucca the owner was very welcoming, the cake and drinks served up on arrival were most appreciated.
The staff were great. the room was clean. There is a resteraunt nearby which was wonderfull. Close to saturnia hot springs, a geat relaxsation resort.
Parking, breakfast, and a central location were the main advantages. The hot springs at Saturnia were about 1 kilometer from the hotel.
Hospitality Room-Doors are in the open-air unprotected.Breakfast room not inside connected with sleeping area. Bad for winter time!
The Hotel room was spottless the design modern, comfortable and functional. It is located in farmland and the yard has fruit and vegetables that were offered to us. 2km away are the hot springs of Saturnia where you can take baths at the falls free of charge or at the fountains for 7.50 euro. You can choose to dine at any nearby town at the top of the mountain which has senery and history. I highly rcommend this property if you want to do something different and away from the tourist crowds. A swimming pool would have been nice
Lots of space (we had the suite). Excellent location. The owners are really nice.
Accomodation most rudimentary and is being camoflaged as eco. Very difficult not to be offensive as it is a con trick. !00 Euros per night plus 30 Euros per person for an appalling dinner is totally unacceptable. This is a B&B that gives all honest houses a bad name. I am surprised that you deal with this stable I will not even attempt to list the cons. Do not appreciate having to get up every hour of the night to put wood in a wood fire in order not to freeze to death whilst a rudimentary heating system was on holiday- I do not consider a poor hungarian goulash a tuscan dish
Beautifully and tastefully decorated house and friendly host in beautiful country side.
