    The rooms are very much 2-3 star, however, the overall property has a great feel about it. Staff were amazing, breakfast was great. Great ambiance. If I have the opportunity, I will come back. Definitely need a car if staying here.

    Nous recommandons à tous cette auberge. Elle est tellement belle et vraiment bien située. Les lits sont confos, le déjeuner est excellent et le paysage est magnifique. Le village d’Orvieto est le plus charmant! Un de nos coups de cœur lors de notre voyage en Italie.

    Sehr schönes Haus mit außergewöhnlichem Ausblick.

    Unsere Erwartung wurden noch übertroffen. Wunderschönes und gepflegtes, altes Haus in außergewöhnlicher Lage (Blick - auch vom sehr schönen Frühstücksraum - auf San Gimignano). Alles sehr sauber. Sehr nette u. hilfsbereite Quartiergeber. Das Frühstück war sehr vielfältig und hat - was uns besonders gefallen hat - vor allem hausgemachte und aus der Region stammende Produkte geboten.
