Definitely our favourite hotel anywhere. We found it by chance in 1999 and came back every year for 10 years in a row. Circumstances meant there was a gap then of 7 years but we were so glad to be back. The keywords are - welcome, relaxation and breakfast. You won't find better anywhere in Italy and beyond. A superb... More

What a perfect little hotel. Firstly I must add that you need to have a car, you are in a small village. The hotel has a lovely feel to it, and the overall cleanliness is fantastic. Clearly run by enthusiastic owners who are the perfect hosts. We booked via Expedia, which when we arrived gave us a regular room. It... More

For us - 1 couple plus a single adult - all WASP - very good. We had just completed a group tour based out of the fabulous Colle di Val d' Elsa and had stayed at the Palazzo San Lorenzo. Pool was delicious (but we're Canadian so maybe we like it colder - just kidding). We had a rental car... More

Eight of us recently spent three nights at this hotel. The rooms are fine, the breakfasts beautiful and the pool much more pleasant than I expected. There is only one restaurant in the village, so an extended stay might be a bit limited unless you are happy to drive at night. All in all we felt quite affectionate about the... More

This was indeed a gem. We thoroughly enjoyed the country atmosphere of hotel le Volpaie. The owners take great pride in presenting a wonderful breakfast. The owners are also very hospitable. I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

We have selected the hotel based upon prior reviews and we were very happy with the choice. We had the room with a terrace looking towards the scenery. With the help of great weather, we started each day looking out and marveling. The room was good sized, while the shower was rather small. Breakfast was excellent and the owner very... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times and it has been consistently excellent. The breakfast is very special and served with great care, no other hotel in my experience has equalled it for quality and variety. The hosts are welcoming and take pride in looking after their guests. The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable and those with a... More

This is a gorgeous hotel in a lovely area, quiet but a nice distance from the delightful Volterra and from San Giminjano. However, not one time did the host Luca smile at me. Not even once. He was very friendly and engaging with all the nice white couples there. I was the only solo female staying there, and a minority... More

Anna & Luca are the perfect hosts. The location in the country between San Gimignano and Voterra is wonderful for day trips to Chianti, Siena, Cortona & Lucca. You'll feel like family and Anna puts out a great breakfast to start your day. Rooms are spacious, plain and air conditioned. We enjoyed a dip in the pool after a day... More
