Rated 4.5 out of 5
We had a great stay, very quiet. We had excellent pizza for dinner at the place across the street. Sister Lauretana treated very well. Welcoming us with cold water which we appreciated as we arrived by bicycle. We used their hose to give our bicycles a much needed wash. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Santuario Santa Maria della Pace. We were kindly welcomed at the Monastery with cold drinks and snacks and were shown all the amenities in a very hospitable way. The accommodations were clean, breakfast was wonderful and we enjoyed the serenity of the monastery in a very beautiful rural setting of Tuscany. Thank you for your hospitality.

The welcome and service we got was excellent. Although I am not rating the rooms and sleep quality the highest, it was what we expected and so it was not a concern. Recommendation to friends would depend on whether they would be happy with a more rustic environment, we were.

It was so quiet and in the middle of olive groves and vineries. We saw Milky Way and a shooting star. The building is very old and charming. Breakfast was very nice in the courtyard. Highly recommended to experience the countryside of Italy. You may need to bring cash to pay. We did not have enough cash so it was troublesome.
