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! Silvia and Christina made our stay unforgettable and made a great effort to welcome us... More

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

This was a great location and very close to Castellina a wonderful little town and good base of operations if you have a car. The hotel was great and the people were nice and accommodating. Our only complaint was the furniture in our room was very dated. The armoire had an odd smell and the mattress on the bed was... More

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful place for 2 nights and loved it. The breakfasts were good and we had a great dinner at their restaurant each night. We were there at the end of their season and it was a bit cold so did not use either of the 2 outdoor pools but they looked so inviting!... More

Our group stayed here for 4 nights recently, and just loved it. Christina & Allesandro make you feel like you at their home. They are most gracious hosts. The accomodations are outstanding, as is the restaurant (we had 2 dinners there in a relaxed, no hurry atmosphere. The breakfast are also great...plus you have your "own" table at every meal....

Staff were just wonderful - they did everything they could to make us feel at home! Rooms were clean but basic, but we enjoyed every minute! Staff were so kind, when we wanted to leave a day early due to some change in plans, they cancelled our last night with no cost to us. That was such a wonderful gesture,... More
