Below is an extract from Italia Magazine, written by our own Tony, about the best Italian Hotels and B&Bs out there:


This family-run establishment is set in an 18th-century converted hamlet in the Tuscan hills and is pure paradise for those seeking a quiet and romantic retreat. The owner, Luigi Protti, had been in Milan for 50 years when he decided to seek country life for his family. Since then the Protti family has carefully restored their home to its present charming form. Luigi and his family now take enormous, and understandable, pride in their new property. The bedrooms have gorgeous old rafters, wrought-iron beds, elegantly hand-painted wardrobes, and rugs on terracotta-tiled floors. For cool autumn nights there are cream sofas and log fires. The panoramic pool surrounded by olive groves is the perfect spot for relaxing or sipping a drink while enjoying the sunset.

The restaurant serves home-made and traditional food and locally produced olive oil. Bread comes fresh from the bread oven. An atmosphere of luxurious calm and seclusion prevails.
