Today it is famous for being home to a 17th-century sanctuary.with a painting by Pier Francesco Fiorentino.
Nice hotel in lovely area within easy driving distance of several lovely tourist towns. Very good cooking in the evening. On site parking and nice grounds / pool area.
Not brilliant value for money. Breakfast not up to the gourmet standard of the evening meals. Dining room closed for evening meals on one of our two days (Tuesdays - we did know this in advance). Charge for internet access.
Excellent location in a beautiful part of Tuscany. Restaurant is first class with home cooked Tuscan food using local, top quality ingredients. Staff very friendly giving the hotel it's family run appeal.
Really only thing I would improve upon is having fresh fruit juice at breakfast and fresh coffee - both were from a machine. Not sure why.
It is calm and relaxing in a wonderful part of italy and the service is just what we look for - we have made several visits before as residnents and to the restaurany.
Excellent restaurant. Very laid back and relaxing setting. Fabulous central position for visiting Florence, Pisa and Siena.
We have returned to the Renaie for many many years it is near perfect ,as are all the staff.We hope to return in2011
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
