Title says it all, doesn't it? This was our first visit here but certainly not our last: we stayed for two weeks with a family of 3, coming from Berlin, Germany. Most people tend to stay 3-5 days, it seems to us. Many families with children and a few couples of all ages. Because of the length of our stay we really got to appreciate what Villa Schiatti has to offer: Angela at reception is an angel; Alan runs the restaurant high above the valley (breathtaking views at night) with charme and knowledge; Laura never tires of breakfast moods - the breakfast is to emphasize as is the beauty of the rooms: they're not very large but tastefully furnished and comfortable. All air-conditioned which was a must as we had > 40 Celsius (> 105 F) on most days. Because of the location there often is a nice breeze and the pool is kept very cool at all times so you don't get a heat stroke. Ample parking. Lovely walks right in the neighborhood. A stone throw to Cortona, a short, beautiful drive to Arezzo. A large outlet mall not far, the lake close, and even excursions to Siena and Florence are doable within a day (though you will regret leaving the countryside if, like us, you live in a city all year round). Schiatti is not a luxury hotel - all the comfort none of the attitude - and great deals. For the asking price you can hardly do better in this neck of the woods. As I said: we'll be back!

Room Tip: Most rooms have great views, especially when above the valley. Above the pool is OK too.

Why we love Toscana - because of its food, wine and that you can easily reach any destination - whatever it will be - sea, Florence or some shopping centers nearby, That all you can find in this hotel - every day and evening you can enjoy the view from the terrace and have a wonderful lunch or dinner. Every part of our journey was extremely nice, you can find at this villa all you need - even such an intersting thing as truffle hunt. It is when you and your friends can find a truffles, hiding in the woods with special man and his clever dog. Very exciting and you will have what to tell to your friends when you'll come back.
Food is also very good - fish, meat and any kind of cheese in the restaurant. Cleaning of the room is excellent. I have an expirience with different hotels and that villa has 5 stars in my list.

Stay here for 02 nights and satisfied with this villa, although location on the hill and only one-way street to get here, it is worth every penny, the hotel looks quaint but you will feel home and it has a nice view. This hotel has a good collection of wine at reasonable price, breakfast is standard but a good quality, Receptionist very nice and friendly & for sure I will recommend this villa to my family, friends, and colleagues

Pretty, old property, with idyllic views, adequate dining, [horrible house wines, and the rest is wildly overpriced]
A great location for day trips to the surrounding towns,
Rooms clean, adequate, bathrooms acceptable, small.
No extra towels, no clock, scratchy linens, thin coverlet.
Told we would have to rent towels at the pool !!!
Elevator is so slow, the stairs are a better bet.

Wi fi spotty or non existent, depending on the room. Same with T.V., few if any English speaking channels .

Once at the hotel, very little to do. A nice pool [no towels or food/drink service], we were told no cabs or shuttle service available to go into town or to visit local attraction etc. So once there, if no rental car, you are stuck

The biggest problem is the current management. [seeing the very positive reviews of Angelo, etc]
Young couple, not Italian, no experience with the area. No interface with the guests at all, other than to issue room keys and invoices. Very bad "people skills"

No activity at all, board game, property tour,shuttle to town,outdoor sport, bicycles, as advertised, no walking trails, gym equipment etc
No listing of restaurants, concerts, activities in the area [horseback riding, outlet malls, wineries, olive oil distributors etc]
All the positive reviews spoke of prior owner, who sounds very nice, and helpful.
Not the new regime

Room Tip: View over pastures, not pool or driveways
