The 15th-century building has all modern conveniences, but Renaissance charm still shines in the high-ceilinged rooms. The Bargiacchi family has run the place for more than 20 years, and their collection of 20th-century art contrasts nicely with classic furnishings. Larger-than-usual single rooms have French-style beds, and are a good choice for those traveling alone. Breakfast can be taken in a small outdoor garden when weather permits. Though the hotel is in the centro
storico, it still feels somewhat off the beaten path.
