“Central location in Tuscany”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We went on a one week tour of Tuscany and were based at this hotel for the whole week. It was pretty central for all the usual towns and sights. The view from our room over the countryside was amazing. However we were a bit disappointed with the room itself. It was small and in need of refurbishment. We had to complain because the shower head was at about waist height but they did fix this as soon as we mentioned it. The evening meals were OK but nothing special although the Montepulciano Nobile wine was great quality and a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back overlooking the countryside rather than the front which only has a view o...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2006

It was my first trip to Italy since a young child. I wanted a few days to relax and unwind. Somewhere where I would not meet too many other foreign tourists, I wanted the Italian experience but with tourist amenities, so go where the Italians spend their holidays!

After much research we settled on Chianciano Terme. This is a very smart resort spa town built upon its famous water reputation for curing all kinds of ills. There are no thermal waters for sitting in like a pool as such; here the water is mostly used for drinking. However there is a first class health spa for massages thermal treatments etc.

This is a place where very well mannered, smart and mostly rich Italian couples go for their holidays. In fairness it’s not really for very young people with the average age 50 plus but this depends on what you are looking for. For us in our thirties it was ideal, a true Italian experience. And with a new health spa that has a fantastic range of treatments people of all ages can enjoy Chianciano.

So what do these mature very well cultured smart Italians do on holiday? They dance together arm in arm in the loveliest surroundings, inside the water park (the same place where you can drink the water) with live music background.

We chose the hotel Villa Maria because it has a great value spa package. The hotel was beyond our expectations, people make a place and here the attention to service was first class. All the staff are friendly and helpful and became friends during our stay. A special mention for Fabrizio the manager who speaks excellent English, he truly made our stay memorable with his help and advice. I would highly recommend the full board as the meals are fantastic. True Italian style dishes served in generous portions. Overall an exceptionally clean, very well managed hotel that became a home for us. This review really does not do the Villa Maria justice.

Our routine after our fantastic hotel lunch was to take a siesta and mid afternoon wander over to the park set in gorgeous green surroundings, sit and sip the water (in cups provided or bring your own) lazily soaking up the sun listening to the live band. A very cultured relaxing experience.

We highly recommend the health spa which is moving to a new location within the park itself from September 2006, so it is even more convenient to the hotel Villa Maria literally 2 minutes walk away. The hotel as we mentioned offers a great spa package of several treatments (I especially recommend the healing hands of the Shiatsu therapist) and full board accommodation, very good value and if you’re new to spa treatments the ideal choice.

Chianciano Terme is a magical place for us and the hotel Villa Maria our special secret home in Italy. We will definitely be going back there for a quiet relaxing few days several times a year and enjoy the waters of Chianciano and the spa treatments, I am sure my wife and I will learn to dance old fashioned style arm in arm, and one day have the courage to join the Italians dancing in such beautiful surroundings.

In conclusion, Chianciano was like stepping back in time to another age of good manners and culture. If you want to meet cultured Italians in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere (as most of the Italians are here on holiday just like you!) and especially if you are looking for somewhere that has serious health benefits then we highly recommend this place and for us there is only one hotel we would stay Hotel Villa Maria.
