Beautiful place, really romantic. The common rooms with the fireplace and the library books, and old candlesticks were excellent! The outside space was beautiful too. The staff were friendly and attentive, so very helpful.

We stayed here for a few days before attending a wedding in Siena. The staff was all really kind and helpful, both at the reception and in the restaurant. Our room was a really good size, it was well presented and the balcony/terrace a delight, lovely views and the added bonus of sun loungers and a sun canopy.The whole estate... More

I took my mum for our annual girls trip here and the first thing she said, that if she ever gets married again, this is where she will go for honeymoon. Absolutely amazing with best views, service and food. We ate here 3 our of the 4 nights of our stay. If you have time, do read the book that... More

My beau and I stayed 4 nights and loved every moment. Here's a snapshot: - within 1 hour's drive to Florence, about 45 minutes from Siena, 10 minutes from Castellina in Chianti, and about 30-45 minutes from San Gimignano. So, very well located for major sites - tucked away - I loved how the hotel is not visible from the... More

If you're considering this place you must be coming to Tuscany by car- well, be prepared for good 2km of off-road adventure. The 'road' going from the main road to the hotel is not paved, it is very narrow and you will probably see a Bambi. Pray to whichever god you're into that you make it safe and then enjoy... More

We were in June 2014. We strongly recommend this hotel. Clean room, masterfully prepared food for dinner, quiet, beautiful views of the surrounding forests. Wonderful and helpful staff. Help and advise you on any matter. Even how to purchase the best Tuscan ham. Will help arrange a ticket to the gallery UFFIZI. Good base to Florence, Siena and to the... More

Tenuta Di Ricavo is simply, one of Chianti's loveliest quant rustic hideaways! If like me, you are tearing your hair out as you can't choose where to stay given the vast choice of hotels in Chianti, look no further! You will not regret staying here!

Many people don't realize that this was once a working Tuscan village complete with a Padrone Manse and farmers cottages. It goes back 1000 years. The entire town was purchased by a European couple who wanted to bring back the village, and manse, as a vacation home for the couple and their children. When the husband died, the wife decided...

While most of the other people at this hotel were couples, our family couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and we really enjoyed getting drinks outside on the patio. The staff could not have been more helpful, the only complaint that we had was the fact that you could only get wifi in... More
