This is an adorable converted farm stone house that is close enough for walking distance to the village of Castellina in Chianti. It is also next door to the best pizza italian / wine restaurant I've been to.. and trust me I travel for a living..very few can compare . The staff were very hospitable and accommodating to our needs. I can't compliment enough how friendly and helpful they were. The rooms have character and are well kept. It has a pool and a barn that serves a delicious breakfast. Silvia was the inn keeper and she helped us get to the Castle in Chianti without confusion as well as other remarkable sites nearby. I did explore around the area and couldn't find anyplace that would be so close that would make the experience more enjoyable. I highly recommend Hotel Salivolpi and cherish my stay there.
