“A truly magical place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We chose this hotel for its quiet yet accessible location about 35k from Florence. ( take the train as it is only half an hour)The staff, Maria, Anaisia and Paula are extremely charming hosts who all made our 11 day holiday an exceptional one. Thank you all so much.
Rooms are spacious and beds extremely comfortable. Breakfasts delicious. Stunning location and lots of restaurants within driving distance. We have been travelling to Italy for 12 years now and have stayed in some very fine hotels with lots of facilities but we both enjoyed this the most and cannot wait to return. The staff are exceptional and are always gracious and helpful with a delightful sense of humour!!

Situated well back from a winding country road, about midway between Arezzo and Florence, Belpoggio was a friary and has its own church across the terrace from the main house. Get driving instructions, because the GPS might not recognise the precise location. The welcome is charming and unhurried. It might include a proud history lesson (in Italian) by 82-year old auntie Signora Rosi, whose family lived here before the friars and whose tombstones are in the church.
There are beautiful apartments for families and spacious rooms for couples. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms large and luxurious. Floors are of stone and the walls are thick, so wifi is only possible in the public rooms and terrace. Breakfast is delicious.
There are spectacular, long views from the rooms and gardens, a spacious terrace for breakfast, a large swimming pool, and ample parking.
There is a superb restaurant 5 minutes drive down the road, where you are served by a helpful, knowledgeable wine-buff who lived in Scotland and speaks good English.
The multilingual ladies who run Belpoggio are all delightful. They give good advice on walking and touring plans.
A perfect stop, either overnight, or as a hub for touring this wonderful region.

Belpoggio means 'beautiful hill' which sums up the setting perfectly. The accommodation was all that we expected from the Trip Advisor reviews, comfortable beds, rustic decor with plenty of space for clothes and dressing. The showere was a little disappointing given that we are used to a power shower, and the breakfasts, whilst good, were a bit samey (therefore strawberries one morning were a treat!), but I'm being picky. Stay here for the accommodation and for trips to to local restaurants - breakfast is the only meal served so be prepared to drive for dinner or walk 3.5 k to the nearest restaurant. Our hosts were friendly and extremely kind, always ready to help out with bookings, directions and a glass or two of wine.

We only stayed for one night on the day that we arrived Rome. The drive was a little rough but it was all worth the effort. We were also lucky enough to join them for dinner. The room is in good size and the bathroom is nice and clean. The room is on the 3rd floor with a common room outside. It is perfect for us traveling with a 11 month old baby. She can sleep in the room while we were chilling outside. The bed is comfortable. The staffs who worked there were friendly and knowledgable.

A large party of us stayed here in May 2013 and had a lovely time. The rooms were all comfortable and spacious with modern well functioning bathrooms and the breakfasts were splendid. The staff, Maria, Agnese and Paola were incredibly welcoming from the start and were full of knowledge about good places to visit and the best local restaurants. Very kindly they prepared a pasta supper for the children every night, which made life much easier for us, and the children had a wonderful time pottering around the grounds and looking at the animals at the nearby farm. A very relaxing break for us all and we look forward to coming back!

I just spent 11 days in Italy, stayed in four different locations and Belpoggio was, by far, the best! The accomdations are elegant and the staff is even better. The experience from check-in to our departure could not have been any better. The grounds are lovely, the breakfasts are wonderful and the treatment by the entire staff was amazing. I highly recommend!

We like to try different hotels when we travel and rarely go back to ones previously visited. There are a few exceptions to this rule. Belpoggio is one. The staff was the highlight of our last visit in 2010. They are all still there and are the essence of what makes it so very good. It is more like a home away from home. The building is a treasure. It is old, beautiful and well maintained. Yes, the wireless internet does not work in all the rooms, as it does not go through all the thick stone walls. If that is so important, then you might want to stay in some characterless, thin-walled place along a major highway. If you want peace, quiet and beauty put your electronic devices away and enjoy the countryside. The staff gave excellent recomendations for restaurants and interesting things to see. We were extremely happy with ALL. I am not one who gives high ratings to every hotel and restaurant I see. Belpoggio is special. It is worth Five Gold Points, if only Trip Advisor had such a rating.
