Polished wood planks and handwoven rugs have replaced the rustic flooring of a former grain mill, and comfortable sitting rooms and cozy bedrooms are filled with a mix of antique and modern pieces. A separate building with additional rooms is surrounded by a garden. The hotel's wood-beamed restaurant serves refined international cuisine and unusual adaptations of traditional recipes. The menu changes with the seasons, so look for roasted pigeon or a sorbetto of wild berries
in the summer; toward winter, truffles will appear. A sommelier dispenses advice about wines.

We couldn't believe what a deal this place is! The location is very quiet, being on the edge of the old town, overlooking a quiet valley. The rooms are very large, but a little funky--marble floors are cold, and they have some of the ugliest modern art imaginable. On a more positive note, the lobby is lovely and the restaurant is equally enjoyable.
