Relais San Pietro in Polvano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2017 via mobile

For those who appreciate attention to detail; professionalism, high standards and value for money this property represents all from start to finish... The host Luigi clearly a man of wisdom , experience and knowledge has created a first class experience for a fair price which would put many luxury accommodations to shame.
We experienced 2 room types both which were immaculately clean, spacious and have been well thought out to serve all your needs. Equally the grounds and pool area were extremely well kept, idyllic and incredible views.
Breakfast was quality produce, plentiful and well presented. We also chose to have dinner which didn't disappoint and again was delivered with old school professionalism and in the words of Luigi 'casual but elegant' dress code.
Would highly recommend this property for couples and groups of friends all year round.

A second visit to the beloved Relais San Pietro in Polvano proved to us what many canny travelers to Tuscany already know: Owner, Signor Luigi Protti deserves legendary status. As if from an earlier time when courtly respect was the rule, the diminutive host, clad in bespoke striped shirts, perfectly paired with Italian silk ties and impeccably tailored trousers, makes it a point to extend a personal, warm welcome to the fortunate travellers whose GPS devices have successfully navigated the winding Tuscan village roads leading to his serene haven---a scenic path, well worth taking. Signor Protti's
warm personal approach is apparent throughout one's stay as he may be seen bringing
a guest's favorite beverage---cappuccino?---herb tea?---Prosecco? on a silver tray to complement the sumptuous meals prepared by his wife, the chef. It is a family affair, a labor of love, which makes it appear effortless to provide such memorable stays in the Tuscan countryside as those inspired by the "legendary" Signor Protti---an effort he has perfected while attaining the venerable age of 85. ---Truly a Prince among men.

Room Tip: The Peonia Suite is lovely, quiet, and comfortable with a 'treehouse" view of the Tuscan co...

The relais is a little off the beaten track but was perfect for three nights to allow easy access to montepulciano, la pienza and Cortona. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The room cleaning/turndown service was perfect. Given its relative isolation we ate at the restaurant on the first night and never looked back. The food we ate at the relais was the best we ate any where in Italy. Reasonably priced too. The restaurant doesn't start service until 7:30 and at this time you are offered a prosecco. Before this time however we were not offered a drink and I think you would actually need to go to the reception and ask. There was one waiter and he was only in training so perhaps this is why we were never offered drinks prior to 7:30. The drinks service is a little slow but given our relaxed mode it didn't bother us too much. Señor protti is charming and helpful. The old buildings have been beautifully restored. The view from the terrace is absolutely stunning.

Room Tip: Antica rosa was beautiful.

Wonderful, beautiful and relaxing with truly outstanding food. Signor Pratti, the proprietor is a lovely man who has created a lovely Tuscany bed and breakfast. The place is incredibly serene and designed for withdrawing from daily life and for taking day trips. By this I mean there is very little activity during the day at this place in a good way. So if one wants to lie around for more than a day at a time they will become restless.

The highlight of the place is the homemade dinners if you choose to dine at the Relais in the evening between 7:30-9:30pm. You will not find better food anywhere in the area even though we tried on a few occasions.

This is a charming hotel in the countryside so a car is essential. Vey welcoming, comfortable room, nice bathroom. Pre dinner drinks and then dinner on the terrace are truly outstanding - quite apart from splendid food, the view over the valley below towards Castiglion Fiorentino in the distance is memorable.
