  • First, this really isnt a hostel, it is in a farm house. We were charged for every little item, so somewhat a false advertisement. The location is beautiful, but you were stuck there with no way of transportation unless you had your own car. Breakfast was essentially corn flakes, cookies and instant coffee.We either got bed bugs or fleas from our sleeping room, leaving us itchy the rest of our trip. Would love to have another experience in the Chianti region, but won't be at this location.

  • Heart of Tuscany was very quaint and, indeed, had a lot of character. It was a perfect getaway for us. Unfortunately if you don't have a car you cannot go out for dinner as the hostel is on a dangerous road with no pedestrian access to the nearest town (which is a 2km walk). The bikes that we hired need to be repaired but it was good that they were available. The wine tour was a blast (although very short, and we only went to one vineyard)! The only negative is the lack of air conditioning/fans

  • Joli endroit, Patrick, le gérant est vraiment déplaisant. Il y a plein d'extra et les prix ne sont pas ceux affichés sur le site de l'auberge. Une nuit ou deux maximum...

    This guest refused to speak english(english teacher) for the first 45 min ! On her last night I was called to the office to explain that we dont Haggle the price of the bike rental . It is marked 10euro a day on the site you book from,and I tell her the price when she rent them.
