Good morning,

Thanks for the review. We are very surprised by the 5 star rating and your comments. Our B&B has 17 apartments (most of them for 4-6 people) of which some double rooms and breakfast is compulsory (it is a B&B). In this period, the small accommodations are occupied immediately and so, yes, the double rooms (included in the package) were full (as they are for the near future). Before booking, everything was communicated and it was very clear what was to be paid and what was included, and therefore, the choice was yours.

Given the COVID situation, we can no longer make our buffet, and therefore, breakfast is served at the table. We have never missed the products that are all LOCAL or HOME MADE of an EXCELLENT quality, and can be asked WITHOUT WANT, so we remain confused about the comments of the breakfast. We are sorry if this service was not what you preferred, but given the new rules, unfortunately we can not do otherwise. Clearly, being in the countryside, if you have jam on the outside table at 9.00 a.m. we could also get a wasp and we are sorry, but there is nothing else we can do to suggest eating at the tables inside where there are no insects.

Our restaurant is closed only on Wednesday evenings and we offer HAND-MADE PIZZE in our old wooden oven. WE NEVER HAVE HAVE A NEGATIVE COMMENT ON PIZZE. In fact it often remains one of the highlights of the week for our guests. They are really good and even the dough is made by us. Guests can eat them on their terraces or on the terrace of the restaurant. This is also communicated before arrival.

We inform all our guests that we do not have air conditioning (which is not needed at this time) and we do NOT have mosquitoes in our location. The studios are located on the ground floor with an embankment in the old stables of the farm and are very pleasant during the summer because they stay cool, but of course they have windows on one side. However, there are photos of each apartment on our website so that you can evaluate your accommodation before booking.

If I can make a kind suggestion, I would advise you to evaluate well your needs before choosing a place to stay because if there are already problems or controversy before arriving, it certainly does not give you the chance to get off on the right foot :)

San Ottaviano is the ideal setting to experience a truly relaxing and authentic Italian vacation. If you want easy access to more tourist destinations - Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence - you should stay closer to those places. But if you want to experience the beauty and authenti... Read more

Room without external light, Swimming pool to be restored with wasps following. First dinner of ravioli drowned in water with a little ragù resting on top. Very kind employees. But the owner should refresh the place.

We're sorry that he did not find what he was looking for on his vacation. I believe, however, that you are the first guest this year with these negative comments, and I sincerely can not agree. The light bulb on your terrace burnt down one night and we could not foresee it. In your opinion, we have replaced it. The light, therefore, was not bad. The last two comments surprised me a lot. Our company, although a working farm, is a well-kept, rustic, but not overlooked place. If I can, I enclose below the photos of the places you mentioned. I also point out to you that your bathroom had been made last year. To mention some of our projects this year I tell you, we have four new stone terraces, a new riding school, 4 new bathrooms, new curtains and beds for all 26 apartments, new aviary, new garden, two new apartments, gardens new, new outdoor tables, new restaurant tables etc. The maintenance of a place like ours is constant in all respects from the gardens, outside the apartments. Being an estate of more than 250 hectares in the countryside, there will be no green lawn on all sides, but it is a structure in continuous movement and we do our best to keep everything as good as possible. For the restaurant, you are the first guests throughout the season to have a negative comment. We are sorry if it was not to your satisfaction. We recommend next time to point out to the waitress if you did not like something. All in all, from your comments, it seems to me that you would have liked much more a holiday in the city instead of the Maremma countryside. I advise you to read carefully where you choose to stay for the next time to make sure that you find all of your satisfaction.

A place with breathtaking views, a farmhouse surrounded by the wonders of the vegetation and the peace of nature. Regenerating definitely! A place for those who really love themselves and nature. Gaia's Mami :-)

Good morning Lenka, I am very sorry to read these words, so different from the comments received in person! At the end of the lesson and horseback ride (which at the end did only her, despite a reservation for two people canceled 20 minutes after the appointment time and still not charged - even if you signed a contract for this reason) I instead he thanked a lot, underlining how pleasant it was to regain confidence with the horse! Here in San Ottaviano the passion for horses is authentic and both the animals and the school are kept with extreme care. The same applies to restaurant charges: days before your arrival, together with the contract you received the menu with prices, regulations and costs of the various activities. You were therefore aware of all the rates, both for adults and for children. Meals were booked before arrival, then canceled and rebooked ... we were available and flexible throughout our stay. I'm afraid that the bad mood is not due to the aspects described in the comment, but to the charge of the last night: you decided to leave at 19 instead of the next morning. As with many other farms, our policy (clearly indicated in the contract that you have signed) is not to reimburse the departures in advance ... In this case then, even if you want to make an exception, you still stopped all day. I doubt that the comment is due to this, because even the rest of the notes that you move your review leaves us stunned: when you asked to drink a beer at the bar our availability was total and the bar open. If I remember correctly you have thought about it because you preferred a more lively place ... well, on this you REASON: OUR IS AN AGRITURISMO AND AS SUCH THE CAMPAIGN AND THE TRANQUILITY MAKE BY PADRONI! We consider it a strong point of our company, also considering that the road to reach it is paved and the country is 15 minutes by car: isolated, therefore, but not too much. I have always thought (and I still think) that all guests have the right to tell their experience, possibly keeping to the facts. Your words have deeply disturbed us, because we try so hard to make our guests feel good and we have tried to really meet you as much as possible: we are sorry you did not notice it.
