Traveling around Toscany, the amount of accommodations can be overwhelming but Villa Schiatti hit all spots for us. We were looking for a quiet place with a swimming pool, a good restaurant on the site (to avoid more searches and driving) and also affordable.
The host family and the staff were very friendly, the dinner at the restaurant and the wine were very good: hearty and well-cooked, just like I would expect from an Italian nonna!
The place has a long tradition but the new owners have taken over quite recently and are doing their best to update the rooms and the interior. I have no doubt this is going to be a 5 star location when the works are done. In the meantime, you can enjoy the location, the restaurant and the swimming pool at a bargain price and not judge on slightly outdated rooms.
Hence my 5 stars for the efforts with best of luck to Eugenia and her husband on their new adventure in Toscany!
