“Wine paradise!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

If you want to spend some quality time in Tuscany you must check in at Dievole, a beautiful villa and b&b about 20 Km north of Siena in the Chianti Classico region, great wines, friendly staff, delicious local food, and some of the best views in Tuscany. It is one of my favorite place to relax and admire the beauty of this unique region.

It is difficult to put in words how amazing our experience was at Dievole and this review should have been written a long time ago.

We booked the place out exclusively for 3 nights for our wedding at the end of July for 90 guests.

The staff were simply amazing but I must mention Gianni personally. We visited Dievole for the food tasting / wine pairings prior to our wedding and he put on a feast for us. He explained the food; recommended certain Tuscan dishes; wine etc. It was exactly what we needed.

When it came to our wedding day he was on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. You are in very safe hands with Gianni and I wish we gave him more responsibility rather than us having to stress over minor details. He should be a wedding planner!!!

The whole 3 days were fantastic and the staff were great. I would highly recommend visiting Dievole for a holiday or if you would like to get married in Tuscany I can't think of a better venue (we visited over 20 during our original search and we made the right decision).

Unfortunately I do have to mention one negative incident where a few of our guests rooms were robbed on the first night. I was distraught that something like this could happen in the location we were in. The majority of our guests didn't lock their doors as they felt it was unnecessary. Dievole called the police who turned up promptly and interviewed the guests who had items stolen however there was no follow up. This is one area where I wish Dievole were more involved by comforting guests; following up with the police etc. It happened on their premises so they should be held partly responsible.

I would recommend Dievole put safes in guests rooms for valuable items etc.

Even with the incident above I still rate Dievole 5* due to the food; location; wine; accommodation and staff especially Gianni (he was also devastated with the news of the robbery).

We will return!

We had a group of nine and were treated to the most wonderful week any of us have ever spent ANYWHERE! The entire group was totally amazed - service is impeccable - my husband and I had a suite and it was very large - food was so good, course after course - I could not eat for days after I left..... you could not find a better located winery hotel. Shopping close, other wineries close - so scenic and peaceful itself you really don't need to leave though...

Absolutely the best there is.

Room Tip: Villa suites are VERY large - I don't think there were any "bad" rooms in the villa!

Gentilissima Elaine,

thanks for your wonderful review! We loved to host your group at Dievole and are delighted to hear that you had a pleasant stay. Autumn is a very nice season in Tuscany and having not so many guests as in high season you caould have an overall impression of the estate that was more realistic than in high season.
We would love to welcome you and your family again and do not hesitate to contact us for your next trip in Italy.

Lots of wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a happy new 2014!!

My wife and I stayed at Villa Dievole for ten nights while were attending painting and cooking workshops. As others have commented, the location of the villa is incredible - it's like living for a time on a postcard of perfect Tuscany. Our many walks in morning and evening were unforgettable. In the mornings as we walked along vineyards, we watched the mists rise from the rolling hills; in the evenings we watched beautiful golden sunsets light up the grape leaves of the vineyards which were turning from green, to yellow, to orange.

On our days off from our workshops we took advantage of Dievole's central location and visited Siena, Florence, and one other local Chianti winery.

The service at Dievloe was outstanding. In a world where good service is becoming more and more common, the staff at Dievole still stood out as exceptional. Everyone we met was friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help in any way.

We stayed in one of the suites in the villa and enjoyed having the extra space during our stay. Our suite had a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and small kitchen. The suite was comfortable and well maintained. On the other hand, the kitchen was too small and poorly equipped to be useful if you actually wanted to cook meals there beyond heating water for coffee and other simple kitchen tasks. For example, there were no kitchen knives for cutting when we arrived. Although these were promptly supplied upon request, they were only of mediocre quality.

Fortunately, cooking was not a priority for us on this trip and the food and wine available in Dievole's restaurant were excellent.

You really can't beat the location of this winery and hotel - set in the beautiful heart of Chianti. The wine is really wonderful - and the winery tour is memorable. We stayed for three nights and used the villa as a jumping off place for visiting a few area attractions - we had been to Dievole before but not to stay. It is very convenient to Siena, one of our favorite small cities. The food in the restaurant is good, but it is the wine that makes us such fans. They are all delicious - we especially enjoyed the Novecento, though the Broccato is a more affordable everyday wine. They are not currently distributing their wine in the US, so we ordered a case to be shipped to us - they threw in an extra bottle for us to take with us at the moment - a really nice touch! The location is beautiful, and the staff very friendly.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor with heavy suitcases in a building with no elevator - if this is a consi...

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!
