Hotel Ilaria and the Residenza dell’Alba, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
An appealing, comfortable bed and breakfast property with contemporary accommodation and a friendly, welcoming style. Originally converted from the old stables of Villa Bottini next door.
Communal areas are minimal, although there is a pleasant little shaded terrace with a whirlpool. 11 rooms are in the Residenza annexe across the street, originally a 14th century church.
A wide mix of international guests looking. Best suited to couples rather than families as there is little space for children to run around.
East of Piazza San Michele, a 10-minute walk away, in a relatively quiet area on the edge of the centre, straddling the narrow stream-like “canal”. Few restaurants are in the vicinity with most shops and restaurants 300m away. Bus stop is just outside and train station 10 minutes on foot. Public parking within 150m. A short walk from San Micheletto conference centre.
Historic centre is a maximum of 15 minutes on foot. Pisa airport is 20km (12.5 miles) away and Florence and its airport are 60km (37 miles) away.
No public exterior areas at the property.
