In the early spring, two group of friends stayed at the Badia for three nights each and loved everything about it. The very best part of our adventures was the two young women who look after the Badia and its guests. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they were always available to meet all of our needs.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights. She did the half day cooking course and I went walking in the surrounding Tuscan hills. We both loved the place. The thought of staying in converted monks rooms from the 11th Century is a little overwhelming. The Abbey and grounds are extraordinarily beautiful. And the wine and food were fantastic.

We stayed here for three nights and attended the cooking classes. What fun! What wonderful food! What delectable vino! This was an extravagance for us and was totally worth it. For the cooking class we prepared our own meals and In all modesty I must say they were delicious. There are walking trails in the hills, and we could even... More

The hotel at Badia a Coltibuono is in a restored huge abbey complex in what looks like a nature preserve. You are at a high point in the area so the views are magnificent and the temperature is cooler (altitude of 1800 ft). The rooms are very large and beautifully decorated so you'll feel like a baron and the bathrooms... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Badia a Coltibuono for 2 nights and absolutely LOVED it! The grounds are beautiful and setting picturesque. It was amazing to think we were staying in an 800 year old building, and that we got to sleep in the monks' rooms! So at the same time, while the setting was beautiful, the rooms were... More

Stumbled upon this magnificent property while out touring the countryside. Look up the tour times because the grounds, building & cellar are so worth seeing. The last tour of the day includes a wine tasting.

Returned to Badia after staying in 2011. Just as amazing. Grounds need to be seen to be believed. We again stayed in the Granery apartment which I think for the size (can sleep 5-6 and there were 4 of us) is a great deal. Looks out onto the garden, has outside dining area, full kitchen. staff is friendly and helpful.... More
