The people there and the pool. The room was very nice and clean too. In about a year this place might be awesome, but for now it isn't ready. The restaurant runs only a very limited menu and the food is average set at an above average price. There is no internet. Overall they look they aren't really ready to open officially, but ready to pretend to be. The people there were very nice and friendly, but they can't make the bad things better only time can. Wasn't happy and we let them know it. They gave us no discount, but we didn't demand one either. They said we were, "very nice people".
The hotel itself The wifi doesnt work in the room n the ac was not working either
Beautiful place on top of the hill overlooking Saturnia valley unfortunately the facilities quite small and overcroweded , great breakfast , the restaurant La Chianina Pescatrice the food is not the best , the service excellent !
Sebastian at the front desk is great! would have appreciate at least one picture hanging on the wall of my room....
the location, the grounds, the staff, the breakfast
Beautiful location.. Opened in 2007 and landscaping works incomplete. Some noise from chain saw disturbed the first day. No bar or lounge and poolside drinks a bit of an effort.
this hotel is wonderful- it is a very expensive hotel- and your rate was almost too good- would have paid more but not its full price- great location
Fantastic hotel in wonderful location. Excellent menu for lunch & dinner. Weather was good so we didn't have time to take advantage of the spa facilites. Wish we could have stayed longer. Cheerful and attentive staff.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff - very well equipped and comfortable room - excellent restaurant - amazing bargain
The staff were extremely helpful the view of sunrise and sunset fab food good not superb and very close to the thermal cascades
Quit environnment. Personel at reception desk and cleaning service good and professional. Architectual building mistakes in room. Airco blows you cold air in the face. Smaal rooms. Amazing so bad not experienced waiters...But very friendly..
I liked the beautiful and very romantic landscape, the silence, the big and clean rooms, the traditional furniture. I also liked the staff that was very friendly and relaxed. The atmosphere, espacially at the evening, when the moon started rising was brilliant. Also the food in the restaurant of the hotel is very good, but you have to be lovers of exquisite kitchen, which means small plates and quite expensive prices. You can visit a lot of very beautful small villages around, that will surprise you a lot while discovering them. The breakfast, although tasty, was extremly italian, which means instead of bacon and eggs and a nice bread, there was mainly very sweet cake. Something which is surely a bit difficult to adapt for guests from other countries. Indeed the hotel is about one hour driving from the sea.
Relaxing and good None
Wonderfull stay in Toscana near Saturnia spa. Relaxing stay, brilliant food and friendly staff.
Charming family-run relais located in the heart of Tuscany. Ideal if you are looking for peace and quiet in the countryside. We arrived one day in advance and luckily they had a room for us. Since it's family-run they might sometimes find it difficult to accommodate guests requests especially last-minute requests or changes especially regarding the restaurant which you need to book in advance for.
The Hotel was situated well fro our drive from Rome to Livorno, has a great swimming pool, and room was big Hotel Staff do not speak English
The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly The standard double room shown at the photo, is far better than the one we have been given. Also the pool was empty although it was a pretty hot day, and all other hotels we've stayed at, during the same period, had their pools in full operation
Very relaxing,quiet,convenient for Saturnia spa,nice pool,nice room and reasonable price for the area. Unfortunately could only stay one night,so didn't get the chance to eat at the hotel.
Hotel's restaurant with nice employees and good food. Remote, quiet and beautiful location. Big Swimming-pool Hotel owners don't speak English at all and therefore are not very communicative. Restaurant employees make up for it. Overall a bit expensive though
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.
Rooms were new. Nice bathrooms.very modern. Nice atmosphere. Owners are so nice. Very helpful. You don't control your own heat. It's all new but there is no insulation from the noise. You can hear a pin drop from other rooms.
Parking, breakfast, and a central location were the main advantages. The hot springs at Saturnia were about 1 kilometer from the hotel.
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.
Hospitality Room-Doors are in the open-air unprotected.Breakfast room not inside connected with sleeping area. Bad for winter time!
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.
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!
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
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..
