Short But Lovely Stay at Vecchio Asilo

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 24, 2013

Arriving relatively late after a day of traveling the Tuscany countryside. The hotel is easy to find and housed in a building that dates back to the 11th century. The little road outside of the hotel has been traveled by Kings and crusaders over the centuries. In the late 20th century the house was used as a school room for the children of the village.

The operators of this hotel Elio and his wife immediately made us feel comfortable and at home. Elio indicated that he has been operating this hotel for about three years. The room was extremely charming. It looked out on a small grove of trees away from the majority of the rooms that have the countryside view. The two twin bed room was immaculately clean. Ancient shutters covered the windows and added a nice touch to the room. The bathroom had touches of marble and a great shower. Despite being full our room was very quiet except for the traffic that comes by just a few feet from the edge of the room.

When I asked if there was a computer for house guests he loaned me his personal lap top which I took to the breakfast room. Honoring this request was very much appreciated.

The breakfast in the morning was unique and wonderful. Elio takes great pride in individually serving each of his guests breakfast. Courses arrive from him individually with great flair. We were the only ones seated at breakfast when we ate and we felt as if we were in a very chic and private restaurant. The breads, cheese (wonderful goat cheese), fresh fruits, and even coffee were wonderful.

Elio also provided excellent directions on the best route to return our car to Siena.

A two bed twin room in May of 2013 was 85 euros. A fair price for such a wonderful room.

Unique Quality: The owners of this hotel have gone out of their way to place furniture and knick nacks that are in keeping with the historical style of the b and b. The breakfast is excellent and as stated earlier it is served to you in a style that makes you think you are the only guests in the hotel. The grounds of this hotel are also lovely but we did not have the opportunity to avail ourselves to them.

Directions: The hotel is on the Via delle Torri which is approximately 5 km from San Gnignano.
