We found our hosts very helpful and good humoured, and they looked after us well. Our room was adequate, although the bathroom and shower were a little on the small side. Pontassieve has a number of restaurants and the meals in the ones we visited were very reasonably priced. The hotel is a short walk from the railway station which has a good service to Florence. Pontassieve is well placed to visit the many towns and villages of Tuscany by car.
