I love this place. Sure, it's rustic. Sure, the bedrooms are sparse - but this is more than made up for by (a) awesome views across olive groves and vineyards (thank you, room 7), (b) great service (Paula and team), (c) incredible local food, cooked and served onsite, on the terrace with same views and (d) the fact that it's...

We had a couple of wonderful meal, great quality, well priced, with the Enoteca right there you buy your wines at Enoteca prices, they don't ever have a corkage charge. Some very good wines bargains can be found, like a 2009 Antinoi Tig for 55 Euro's. Giuseppe or the meat specialist Sauro will go out of their way to cook... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the house we rented on the nearby Arceno estate. The food was excellent and the staff were attentive.The views from the restaurant are amazing and it was well worth staying around just to see the sunset.

This restaurant was suggested to us by a business owner a few towns away. (Radda in Chianti) When he found out we were staying in the area he highly recommended it. This is a bed and breakfast with a small restaurant that has mostly outdoor seating with a beautiful view of vineyards in the Chianti region of Tuscany. (About 20... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days in May 2011. I would highly recommend renting a car with a GPS if you are going to stay in this area - there is no public transportation and the roads are poorly marked. We enjoyed driving through the beautiful countryside of Chianti and were thrilled with the location of the... More

We have stayed at Villa di Sotto twice to date and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although I must say we had two totally different experiences both times. Our first stay was in September during harvest. The weather was divine and allowed us to venture out during the day and return at sunset (over Siena) to take dinner and wine overlooking... More

We rented two rooms in the main house for 3 nights and I was very disappointed. The rooms were extrememly basic -- no soap or shampoo for the shower, a toilet requiring the strength of RAMBO to flush and you could here every word (even snoring) from the rooms next door. You'd also expect when you're spending so much money... More

Villa di Sotto is a great place from where you can visit Tuscany. It's close to all major tourist destinations, like Chianti, Siena, Pienza... Of course you need a car. The house is surrounded by vinyards and olive orchands and the view from the pool and the rooms is amazing. Plus, I had some of the best dinners in Italy... More

We stayed at the Villa di Sotto in July 2005. What a find! When we first arrived, we were shown to our room, then given a complimentary glass of wine. The owner of the B and B grows the grapes that was used to make the wine we were drinking, so he is very proud of it! He left the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Immersed in the superb panorama of the Chianti Classico area, 20 Km from Siena, the Bed and Breakfast Villa di Sotto is a beautiful XIX-century farmhouse surrounded by villages and castles, vineyards and olive groves. The building is located on the edge of an ancient village near Siena called Villa a Sesta, colourful town along the road that leads to the historical Brolio Castle in the heart of the Chianti Classico / Gallo Nero area. Villa di Sotto is the perfect departure point for many different excursions: through the Chianti area (by foot and bicycle), to the famous "Crete Senesi", the cities of art (Siena-Florence-Arezzo), the castles (Castle of Brolio, Castle of Meleto…).The building, restored without modifying its original aspect but equipped with all the modern comforts, offers apartments and rooms with bed and breakfast service. The kindness and courtesy that will welcome you here at Villa di Sotto will make your days unforgettable, and allow you to discover the secret of the beauty of Chianti, and of all the green lands of Tuscany. ... more   less
