Hidden gem in beautiful Pienza”
Fantastic central location, lovely garden and pool, beautiful views, friendly staff, good breakfast
Bed wasn't terribly comfortable and pillow were like rocks (lumpy ones at that!)
We had a lovely three-day stay at this hotel. The staff were lovely, the setting was amazing and the peaceful garden and pool were lovely to return to after a busy day's sightseeing and wine-tasting. The hotel was perfectly located to visit the fabulous wineries at Montalcino and Montipulciano, and Pienza has a small selection of lovely restaurants, just enough to keep one happy for a few days (if we'd stayed any longer, we'd have burst!)
The service at the hotel is very good, if a little eccentric at times. The decor is definitely 'shabby chic', but the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
Unfortunately, we found our bed rather uncomfortable and the pillows were pretty awful, but as we were only staying for three days, we didn't ask to be moved. We had a nice room with a beautiful view across the valley, though rooms on this side of the hotel tend to get quite hot - the rooms on the other side only have a view of the courtyard, but they face north and so are much cooler. Having said that the air-conditioning was efficient and it did cool down at night, so it was fine to sleep with the windows open - and no mosquitoes either!
We had no problems with car parking - we found a free parking space every day, only a couple of minutes walk away, though do be careful with parking, as we misunderstood the signage on one day and landed ourselves with a 40 Euro ticket! Some roads have free parking on one side, but residents-only on the other, which caught us out.
We had some lovely meals and can highly recommend the Latte di Luna - the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were particularly friendly. The portions are huge, but they don't mind at all if you share. The homemade hazelnut ice cream is definitely not to be missed.
We would definitely stay here again and we much preferred the atmosphere of Pienza to that of any of the other surrounding villages, most of which seem to be much more mobbed by tour groups.
피엔자는 이번 여행의 최고였다....거기에 숙소까지 가격대비 최고였기에....
조식을 챙겨주신 여사님...인사를 드리고 싶었는데..쑥스러워서 인사를 못드리고 왔는데..
혹시 호텔 관계자님이 보시면..여사님 덕분에 조식시간이 여유롭고...평화로웠다고 ....
커피를 주문을 받아 테이블까지 가져다 주시고...친구가 감동을 받았습니다..
피엔자 여행시 렌트와 주차요금은..미리 사전에 자세한 정보를 준비하고 떠나길..
