We stayed at Dievole in September 2013. It was our first time in Italy and Chianti region. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived and were offered a glass of wine before we did anything else. The winery is beautiful - the room far exceeded my expectation with a kitchenette, living area, big beautiful bathroom and comfortable bed. The terrace was huge and we were overlooking the white roads were the sun came up through the fog in the morning. The wine and the food were of course absolutely excellent. But what puts Dievole over the top is the service. All of the staff were so friendly, happy and helpful. They made everything elegant and easy. From the front desk to the bar, the restaurant and the wine tour. We barely speak Italian and they helped us with our pronunciation and taught us a few new customs. We enjoyed all of the people so much. We were there for three nights and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer!!! Villa Dievole is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone I know!

Dear Guest,

thanks for the wonderful review: yes, we are proud of our workers and the way they do their job. Tuscany and above all Italy are famous for the friendliness to people and tourist sand here at Dievole we think the best way is to show this to the people directly.
We really look forward to welcome you at Dievole again and remain with our best regards from Tuscany

We were first introduced to the enchanting Villa Dievole back in September last year by our lovely friend and wedding planner, Jacqueline Bradshaw of Marry Me in Tuscany. We'd asked Jac to short list some of the best wedding venues Tuscany had to offer, based on what she knew of us as a couple and what we were aiming to achieve in terms of our wedding day.

Dievole was the last of five venues we were to view and I have to say, we had already seen some stunning locations to hold our big day. Having researched all of the venues websites before our visit, I was probably least looking forward to Dievole, simply because the website, although functional, made the venue feel a little dated and perhaps not the type of relaxed, jaw droppingly beautiful destination wedding venue we were looking for... as such, we very nearly cancelled and decided not to go and look round...

All can say is, boy am I glad Jackie persuaded us otherwise... As soon as we arrived at the beautiful relaxing terrace area near reception and were greeted by Hewelin, we felt the type of warmth and hospitality only Italy can offer. We were taken on a very comprehensive tour of the estate, including some of the main suits and bedrooms, culminating in the garden with the most stunning views across the Chianti Hills.

Had we not have made up our minds there and then that this was the venue for us, the light lunch provided by Dievole would have surely done this for us.

I would like to send out a HUGE thank you to all the staff at Villa Dievole, especially Hewelin and Gianni who worked closely with us and Jackie to ensure our day was as magical and relaxing as possible. The whole day, and the led up to the event, was truly amazing and one that we never forget.

All of our guests constantly complimented the venue - many of them not wanting to leave when it was time to check out or telling us they would be back next year :-)

No where would have been as perfect for us personally, from the staff's relaxed, helpful, friendly nature, the estates AMAZING wine and food, all coupled with those stunning views... it was the most magical experience that we simply didn't want to end.

Thank you so much everyone at Dievole. Now the wedding day has passed, we are happy that we have our photographs and the most wonderful memories to fondly look back on.

Look forward to coming back next year :-)

Beautiful and refined resort in the heart of Chianti, there are these "white roads" around and lots of vineyards. The hotel has various kind of rooms in the different houses around the pools, it has an important cellar too, and hotel guests can visit it in a tour. The wine is really good and is exported world wide, don't forget to buy olive oil too, it's one of he best of the area. The restaurant is elegant with that tuscan charm that you won't easily forget. Once there you can feel the real feeling that only this part of Tuscany can transmit you. I will certainly go back again!

Room Tip: If you go with children ask the rooms near the pool.

We stayed at Villa Dievole for two days in June 2013, and the experience was so perfect! We were upgraded to a nice-decoradted suite. The whole vineyard was large and beautiful. We also took a cooking class there and it was great experience! The wine there was also quite good, and staffs were all very nice! Despite our high expectation before the trip, Villa Dievole easily beat it. This is a must-go for a full Tuscany experience!

We met several guests who have returned again and again, and have stayed up to 10 days at a time. There a ppears to be quite a lot of entertainment for children as well as the benefits of being at a quality vineyard for the adults. The accommodation we stayed in was the main villa - no lift up to the top. Huge room, thoughtful extras, good sized bathroom. We ate on the terrace overlooking the valley and vineyards - perfection. The staff appear to be a big family and you got the feel that everyone cared. Absolutely stupendous breakfast too!

We were returning to Villa Dievole, following an amazing wedding in 2009 and we took back some family as well as our 1-year old son. We had a wine tour with Simone, who was an absolute star and looked after us for the whole of our visit, she also made a fuss of our son which was not necessary, but very much appreciated. We finished the wine tour and were then taken to lunch which was laid out under a beautiful tree with a glorious view. The food and wine were all outstanding and lunch was very relaxed and beautifully presented. All the staff were so pleasant and welcoming and we had a wonderful day and I was the designated driver so there was no way it's the wine talking! I would thoroughly recommend this to people either to stay there or just as a day trip, but you must taste the food! Thank you so much, if we ever go back to Tuscany, we will be visiting you again.

Dear Guest,

thanks for your review. We are happy you decided to visit us again after 4 years and that you find a pleasant atmosphere, for both wine tasting and restaurant service. We put a lot of attention on the food we propose everyday to the clients as wine is more appreciated if paired with good food. We also know that the panoramic views of Chianti Hills really helps in our daily job.
We hope you will come and visit us again next summer also for your tuscan holidays!
