“Heaven Can Wait.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Don't blink or you might miss this little gem! The Belvedere B & B is about as quaint as they come. The converted farmhouse suites are magazine photo ready! The service is stellar and the restaurant is fantastic! It is about 20 minutes from Siena centro and in the heart of the Chianti wine country! My only regret was not staying longer.

Dear Wanderlust,
We thank you for the time that you dedicated to write this review.
Our 3 star hotel is an ancient farmhouse dating back to the 15th century, located in the region of Chianti Classico, the land of the famous black rooster wine.
The staff is friendly, helpful and at the same time reserved, ready to meet the requests of our guests.
We hope to see you again here in San Leonino, maybe for more days the next time, to enjoy our swimming pool overlooking the valley or to have dinner in our garden from where you can view a beautiful sunset.
Our warmest regards from the Chianti Hills!!!

If you are renting a car and your main goal is to explore Tuscany, checking out hiltop towns and wineries, this is a great place to stay. I'm writing this review late, as we stayed in late September. The grounds of this property are beautiful, and the pool was great(but a bit cold). vinyards on one side and olive groves on the other. The property is about 5 miles from castellina, and about a 20 minute drive north of Siena. We drove every day and visited a different hilltop town . it was a great "HUB" for our travel, as it's perfectly located to do this. If you are looking for nightlife or excitement, its not your place.

We stayed in Rome for a week prior to coming to Tuscany, so we were worn out and tired from the hustle and bustle of Rome, museums, and late nights. Our days would be sightseeing, then back to the Belvedere for dinner, or we would just drive down the road to castellina to have dinner in one of the wonderful little places there.

Breakfast was great, as well as the cappuccino. Overall, a wonderful experience and we would come back if we stayed in the area again.

Stayed there in May 2005. A very short stay, but we were so impressed that memories are still vivid eight years on.
Fantastic location. Welcoming staff. Rustic accommodation. Excellent food and more than excellent dessert. Wine from winery some two hundred yards downhill. Many of the diners were not guests of the hotel. On this one, all credits go to the chef of that time.
We promised to return. It is a promise long overdue, but one that will be fulfilled soon.

Excellent place very clean and comfortable good breakfast and wine! You need a car though so might not suit everyone. Castellina in chianti was down the road but was a forgetable place apart from the excellent restaurant there which is expensive but worth it

This is what Tuscany is all about! Beautiful countryside and views, wonderful staff and amazing food! The staff are very accommodating and are there to help you plan your days! There are plenty of lounge chairs around the property to relax and take in the view over rolling vineyards at the end of the day. The bar/lounge area inside is relaxing and comfortable and the pool is pristine! The location is perfect! Castellina is close by and the most charming of the Chianti hill towns.
I plan trips and bring tours to Italy for a living and would very happy to have my clients stay here!!
Thank you Ana and Christina for a lovely stay and I look forward to staying with you again next June!

Dear Ciaodarcy,
Your kind words make us to be so proud, all the staff thanks you for your review.
Our staff in Hotel Belvedere di San Leonino try every day to make the stay of our guests as pleasant as possible.
The hotel is an ancient farm house, dating back to the 15th century, situated in the region of Chianti Classico, the land of the famous black rooster wine.
Here is the best place to relax, in one of our beautiful gardens or by the panoramic swimming pool, drinking a glass of our red wine, listen to the birds singing or enjoying the sunset overlooking the vineyards.
We’ll see you again next June!!! Our best regards,
Angela Orlandi (Sales Manager)

This is an old farmhouse that's been converted into a very comfortable hotel. It has complimentary parking, which helps in this part of the region.

The hotel's staffed with very friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms are very comfortable and the cooks do fabulous jobs with the dinner each evening! [We had planned on dining out but after the first evening, we decided to 'eat in' throughout our three-night there! Double thumbs up for their panna cotta!!]

The hotel's also centrally located to the other parts of Chianti. What are you waiting for? :D
