“Perfect wedding in a wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

After spending many years in this hotel while growing up we asked the Staff of San Leonino if they would be willing to help us organise our wedding in this wonderful, romantic place. Luckily they said yes and we are enormous gratefull!

Getting married in these surroundings, with breathtaking views on the Tuscan landscape, was really amazing.

We would like to thank the staff for there efforts to make this a day to never forget, they were there for us willing to help where they could. They showed a huge flexibility when the rain decided to quick in. In a matter of moments the whole lunch was moved to the inside!

We enjoyed the peace, the quietness, the romantic surroundings, the superb food and the friendlyness of the whole staff.

Crisitina, Angela & Christina: mille grazie!! We will never forget our wedding in the most romantic place on earth!

We had the pleasure to stay - after some years - again in this wonderful hotel and it felt as coming home again.
We always loved this hotel for the nice views, big rooms with splendid views on the Tuscan landscape, quietness, and the friendly staff. The quality of the restaurant is superb, the staff helpfull and everybody is going the extra mile to make sure that you feel at home.

Looking already forward to come back again

Dear Toscana981,
there is no greater satisfaction than welcoming our guests over the years several times.
San Leonino is situated in a quiet position, in the middle of the vineyards and the olives trees,
away from the noise of the city but well positioned to reach the villages of the Chianti area, Siena, San Gimignano and Florence.
The beautiful landscapes, the nice rooms furnished in rustic style, the good tuscan
food served in our restaurant together with a glass of our Chianti wine and the availability
and friendliness of our staff are among the reasons why our customers come back in
our 3 star country hotel.
We thank you for your nice words and until the next time we send greetings!!!

My partner & I just returned from 4 GLORIOUS nights at the Hotel Belvedere. The reception staff welcome you as though you were family arriving for a stay. Their english is excellent and obviously are a wealth of knowledge regarding the outlaying cities & towns, they never seem to tire from the questions either! The scenic beauty of this property is breathtaking-especially from one of the rear rooms facing the vineyard! The Chef is in my humble opinion is Michelin Star quality, and prepares the food with passion and pride in her craft that is obvious from the first bite. The serving staff are vibrant, cheerful young ladies that will entertain any food request. Our first meal came on the heels of a VERY disappointing 3 nights in France-and actually brought a tear to my eye. Our room was very spacious, clean, air conditioned and had it's own private patio overlooking the rolling hills and vineyard. The hotel boasts its own wine and can be purchased at a reasonable price. Although the one thing that could make a great place that much better would be to have the price of their wine match that of their store which is located 10 mins away in Castellina. I did feel a little put off when I saw the same bottle in their store for 3,50 Euro less than the hotel-and that would be my ONLY criticism of the Belvedere, however it didn't seem to curtail my enjoyment of several more bottles once back at the Hotel ; )
Would I go back - DEFINITELY & will be, would I recommend it to friends - POSITIVELY!

Dear tp14,
Your review with so kind words give us the desire to do our job each day even better because the most important thing for us is to make the holiday of our guests as pleasant as possible.
We are happy that you appreciated the position of the hotel and the room, the service from the reception to the rooms, chicken, restaurant and the bar.
Compare our restaurant with a Michelin star one makes us very proud.
As you well know, the prices of our wine sold in the wine shop “Cantinetta di Belvedere di San Leonino” situated in the village of Castellina in Chianti and the prices of our wine sold in the winery here in our office, are the same.
The difference between this and the wine prices served in the bar and in the restaurant is only because this include the corkage made by our waiters and our sommelier, as usual.
We wait for your next visit in our hotel and we send you our best regards.

We choose the San Leonino Belvedere Hotel during one of our frequent journeys around Toscana, and for sure this was our perfect decision. This year we actually book a room and experienced care which was above our expectations. Not to mentioned peaceful and reach surroundings, settled to perfection, excellent service and care with the maximum feeling of the highest possible guest care and hospitality with unobtrusive and very kind feeling for the hotel guests. It is the place you can dream of, not to mention the highest culinary challenge of the Belvedere hotel dinner menus which bring to you the hart of Chianti region into the unforgettable experience. You just have to turn off and leave your selves to the hotel personal!
It was our perfect decision and we will do it again – very soon!!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in August and actually were on sight to celebrate our 25th anniversay. We used the location as a central base to tour Tuscany. The location was fabulous for doing this. We were able to visit Siena, Lucca, Florence, San Giamangano, Greve in Chianti all within a 30 to 40 minutes. Pisa was a little further, but definitely within a reasonable drive.
The hotel itself was fabulous. The rooms were cosy and reasonably comfortable. The grounds were spectacular. Well groomed and maintained. The pool was a very welcome retreat in the 40 celcius + temperatures that we experienced while in Italy! We ate dinner on the property 3 of the 4 nights their and once again, we found the food to be wonderful. Everything was fresh and tasty - very nice variety of offerings daily. The wine selection was fabulous - which of course you would expect being in Tuscany!
The views from the hotel were spectacular as was the drive along the roads in this area.
Of course, I can't say enough about the hotel staff - they were wonderful. Completely attentive and engaged with each and every customer. So very friendly and helpful. We loved everything about the property and hotel management. We would return to this wonderful establishment in a heartbeat!

Dear Lizzy9,
We thank you for the time that you dedicated to write this review and for the nice words that you used to describe you stay in our hotel.
The hotel position in the middle of the vineyards and the olive trees, the beautiful of our gardens and the view from the swimming pool overlooking the rolling hills are for sure very good reason to come and visit us.
Our chef Patrizia cooked with love for our guests typical tuscan dishes likes wild board, cinta senese pork, pheasant breast, ribollita, pappa al pomodoro, crostini misti and more others, with a different menu each day.
Our wine list offer a wide selection of wines like Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Super Tuscans, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Chianti Classico and of course the wines from our farm house.
Until your next stay in San Leonino we send you our best regards.

We only had one evening in the Chianti region of Italy and chose to stay at the Hotel Belvedere. It was one of the best decisions that we made. What a beautiful hotel! Upon arrival, we received an upgraded room, which was very comfortable. Before dinner, we had wine at the hotel bar and walked around the picturesque hotel, which gave us the opportunity to settle in and relax. But the highlight of the evening was the incredible dinner. We had the Florentine Steak for two, which was amazing. I like steak medium well, while my wife enjoys more of a medium/medium rare. The chef cooked the steak perfectly to accommodate the both of us! Meanwhile, Meha (spelling?) and Elvira provided terrific service and made our stay even more enjoyable. Due to our short stay, we did not get the chance to use the pool or see many of the local wineries. But we would certainly like to come back for a longer visit.
