We visited il Granaio for the first time last week and would love to go back as soon as we can! The building itself, a converted grain store, has been sensitively converted to a modern and stylish abode which has everything you need - including beautiful views. The grounds were immaculate and the marble pool was big enough for actual lengths!
Both the owner and her manager/ housekeeper were both helpful and friendly, and always ready to answer all our queries. The welcome basket was very much appreciated and drinking wine and using the olive oil from the vineyards was a delicious bonus.
We weren't as lucky with the sun as we wished this week, yet despite this, there was enough to do, as the property was situated so well - only 1hr from Sienna, near a train station to get you to Florence/ even Rome, and beautiful medieval hill top towns like Cortona and Montepulciano only 30 mins away. The beautiful lake Trasimeno was only 10 mins away. A car is essential.
All in all, we had a wonderful time - a great place, amazing food, and beautiful countryside - what more can you ask for?
