I cant believe the negative reports on this place. It is a traditional family owned and run hotel/pensione. No, it is not a contemporary big city hotel, but you can stay in them in any city in the world. We travelled throughout Italy in 2011 and stayed at this lovely place just out of Greve. Imagine looking out your window over the grapevine draped pergola, with trees and view country views in the distance. Papa was trimming the vines (over the outdoor seating area/ beer garden), Nona was doing the housecleaning, and the family members were running the restaurant and the reception. Yes it is laid back and how wonderful. Staying in a local establishment run by locals, eating the local food and wine. It is not walking distance to Greve but it is only 5 minutes by car. We used it as a base. There is a bus stop nearby.They let us use the hotel washing machine, were super helpful even though not much English was spoken. The apartment (really three small rooms) was self contained. There is a garden out the back, area to sit and read, an above ground pool for kids or adults to cool off, trees and shade. This town has only a couple of other buildings in it and you need to go down the road to Grieve to shop. We found it easy to park in Grieve and shop at the local supermarket and visit all the tourist sites. We booked by email after going on the website and asking questions via email. The owners were most helpful. As it is a quiet place, I am guessing there would be some times when the restaurant may not open, but just ask! We look back at this stay as one of the most quaint we had on our trip. But then we prefer to experience life with the locals. The hotel is really a large old building that consists of apartments and double rooms, with the restaurant alongside- which was busy with local workers stopping in for lunch. How more authentic do you want to get!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks over the back garden over the pergola.

the hotel itself was ok. very far from florence but we had a car s we didnt care so much. the room was nice, and relativly clean but! we had tons of mosquitoes, tiny tv, weird shower and the electricity went off every single night! Also the man at the counter was rude, he really could not care less about us; one day we came back and found ut he movd our things to a different room. he didnt mention breakfast we were supposed to get and didnt offer any help with the questions we had. now when i thonk about it- better to stay away

When I looked for accomodation in Greve in Chianti had checked the comments here and looked promisor. Once there we were receptioned by a man that had more interest in their computer than in us and made few or nothing efforts to provide us the basic information about the hotel and the city. At the same night we needed to change the room due problems with the shower. In the next room the shower had also problems and we had the worst bath of the trip. When discussing about the problem with the same man who receptioned us he was rude and we needed to stay at the room (fortunately it was only one night!). The room itself was large but dark and dirty. With 10 or 15 euros more it's possible to find a decent accomodation in Greve and this is what I'm going to do next time.

We wanted to spend a Saturday in Greve to go to one of the best markets in Tuscany and our usual hotel on the coast was full that night so we needed a stopover. Travelling with a teenage son, it was ideal that Casprini offer apartments with bedroom, living space, fridge , kitchenette, cooling fan, tv, shower room and extra beds for kids. We were able to check in and leave our luggage by 11am, giving us plenty of time for shopping at the market followed by a good lunch in Greve's main square. In the afternoon, we relaxed in the hotel garden, swam in the pool and cooled off before going out for drinks and then pizza in neighbouring towns in Chianti. We could also have eaten in the hotel's own outdoor, vine-covered restaurant. and we enjoyed an excellent breakfast next morning with grapes, yoghurt, juice, choice of croissants, bread and pastries and home-produced jams and honey. Friendly owners and staff, on-site parking and very reasonably priced. Not a luxury place, very simple service but clean, friendly, enjoyable and particularly suitable for families.

We stayed here in September 2010, during the wine festival weekend in Greve. Luca's prices were incredibly fair to begin with, and when he discovered that there had been a tiny, tiny oversight in our booking, he went out of his way to fix everything, and in fact make it better than we had asked for. The garden and outdoor areas are lovely, and though we checked in too late to have dinner at the restaurant the first night, it looked charming (and our breakfast there was excellent). All three of us felt that we would stay here again, and that it's worth recommending.

Our stay did not start well when, on arrival, we were informed that the restaurant was closed. Given that the advertised in-house restaurant was a large part of our decision to stay there we were not impressed.

All of the doors required slamming to close resulting in broken sleep. The bathroom was tiny featured someone's poorly designed concept of a wet room. The main things that ended up getting wet were the bedroom floor and the toilet. The toilet seat was broken and resulted in injury to a certain male body part!

You can not trust the cleanliness either. In the morning we went for breakfast and when we came back the room had been cleaned. We weren't due to relinquish the room for another hour. Plenty of time to soil the sheets!
Oh, and don't leave any empty water bottles about. The stupid cleaner decided that we didn't want them any more and binned ours'.

Dear Weelspin.
You booked the room through booking com. this service it's NOT owned by us, it's just a GDS where you can ONLY book rooms and not restaurant. After room reservation, you could just call and ask if the restaurant was off for the evening because it was opened for lunch but probably, you didn't need it, so you didn't mentioned.
You arrived and asked information about the surroundings. Hotels are not information offices : the services are guaranteed by the county or the province. You had your answer any way with the plan of all events in the surroinds of florence and after this research with ISDN 128kb/s (adsl do not exist here), you decided to change area, so was Siena.
Then you booked a twin room without bathroom and instead you had a room with bathroom at the same price.
At the end, I'm here with my face and instead you just have a nick name with a tower as representation. Well, I would be gracefull to "AVOID this people" coming here. Many whishes for greatfull 2011.
Your sincerely,

Luca C.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Passo dei Pecorai means Pass of the shepherds. It's a Etruscan place situated in a strategic place to visit Tuscany. It's easy to arrive, it's easy to go. The main street (SR2-SP3-SP222), which pass trough the village it was built as a railway connecting Florence to Greve in Chianti in 1870. In 1920 the railway was removed and it remains the straighter, the larger and the fastest way to arrive in Chianti. The Residence and "B&B" it's in part in the original house dating back at XVI century. Obviously spaces sometimes are limited or strange compared to new apartments or new rooms in a new building but this is the charm of old houses. At the moment you can find any solution for you: families with children, couples, singles, group of friends, bikers and even for handicapped. From normal rooms to small or large apartments completely furnished of linen, towels. (sponge for professional use, washed and air-dried here), forks, knives and so on. Beds and mattress are orthopaedic and usually large 85cm instead the more common 80cm. More comfortable. Rooms and apartments are furnished with original period furnishings restored and complemented by the modern style. The beds in wrought iron, terracotta floor and every time we find a unique piece, we integrate the furnishings. All apartments have independent boilers for heating and hot water. Each two rooms, the same. For any problem we'd never be totally without solution and not even you. We can change your room or apartment and we can work to fix without disturbing. All apartments and rooms have independent entrances so you free to came back even late at night. On the back side of the building there is a garden large about 7000mq, with tables, chairs and pool. Feel free to help yourself to find your better place and no service will be charged. Easy, simple and not expensive. Usually we do not need air condition but in all accommodations you will find fans Like all places closed to a river, in winter is cold humid, in summer, nights, are fresh and not conditioned by cement or asphalt as it happens in Florence for example. Degrees can be less than 10°C compared from down town. Really fantastic. Write down "Passo dei Pecorai" on your gps and you will arrive at the entrance. To be a historic place has some vantages as to be a geographic location. The village is well connected with Florence downtown by public transportation on working days, from Monday to Saturday included. You can leave your own car here and visit the city without problem of parking, including costs or traffic. Easy to reach all the touristic centres of Tuscany in maximum 1-1:30hr with your own car. Close by, there is our restaurant run by Casprini's since 1913. We prepare even jam for breakfast. Mostly of things are home-made including part of the starters and desserts. We have a marvellous collection of 32000 bottles of Chianti since 1911 and some important whisky bottles. Take a taste if you are gourmet. The hours are: - For breakfast: 08:00 to 10:30, - For lunch: 12:00-14:00, - For dinner: 19:00-21:30 (winter) 19:00 to 22:00 (summer). - Restaurant is closed on Wednesday For any needing do not hesitate to ask and welcome aboard. Glad to help everybody but the usual Tuscan, sarcastic style. ... more   less
