This is a beautiful place to visit and see so much history before you eyes. Our tour guide was very good and informative. The history of the Abby and the way the owners are keeping the tradition alive is worth noting. A beautiful place to tour and have a nice lunch.

Location amazing - great for hiking and mountain biking, fresh air, great views, peaceful gardens, pool looks great (we were there at the start of April so too cold for swimming). Room was tastefully decorated and lovely and warm, great view over the garden. Bathroom had a fantastic bath, good for relaxing the muscles after a long hike. Two lounges... More

Staying here was one of the highlights of our stay in Italy. So much history in this building with wonderful surroundings. Staff were all very helpful and the tour we had on day one helped us understand the history of the site. Our apartment had 6 rooms including the bathroom and provided everything me we needed. I note some other... More

Hard to decide what rating to give. It was not a bad experiece, but not good either. The restaurant will be reviewed separately. This property has great bones. Beautiful setting, historical abby. However, in our opinion, the hotel sorely needs staff and rennovation. Our biggest surprise was the short hours. This is a large property in the country, but the... More

We spent $400! to take a cooking class at Badia a Coltibuono. I spent a week there 20 years ago taking lessons from the great Lorenza Di Medici and I wanted to relive the experience. It was one of my greatest experiences ever. Not a chance. The chef teaching the class knew his stuff, but he did not control the... More

Location, accommodation, food and wine, customer service all spot on. Peace and quiet but with lots to do locally - who could ask for more? The atmosphere of an old Abby is rejuvenating. Add to that some of the grandeur of a Country Home and their own wine - heaven.

Stayed for two nights after spotting the place listed in the Insight Guide to Tuscany - don't usually eat or stay in anywhere listed in the guide books but the cookery course they run caught my eye. Had a double room with a view of the beautiful renaissance style garden. Slightly dated decor in the bathroom (not olde world or... More

We originally booked one night to follow the cooking course but as soon as we arrived we booked another night. After lots of travelling around we were immediately enchanted by this former monastery. It has lovely gardens in which I relaxed later on with a bottle of wine and finally started the book I'd bought for the trip. It was... More

We stayed in one of the apartments within the monastery. Our apartment was much bigger than expected, we had plenty of space for 4 people, a sit in kitchen and a huge bathroom. Breakfast was also available in the main building - with homemade cake using apples from their own orchard. Typically tuscan it was made with olive oil, a... More
