La Residenza

La Residenza, Tuscany Italy

★    ★   ★

A charming unpretentious choice which offers comfortable accommodation with a relaxed friendly feel, in a good central location that’s handy for the sights and even handier for the designer shops. The hotel actually only occupies the building from the second floor upwards but there is a characterful old-fashioned style lift for those that avoid stairs.

Exterior

Well-presented large 14th century terraced building with wooden shutters and carved stone archways on ground floor; the pavement entrance is flanked by upmarket shops.
