“Wonderful Honeymoon at Hotel Osteria Dell'Orcia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2010

From the moment we drove up to Hotel Osteria Dell'Orcia we knew the place was going to be perfect. The villa had an old world charm and sense of hospitality that we had never experienced before. The hotel is easy to find as long as you have a good GPS system. It is near enough to visit places like Montalcino and Siena, but far enough to experience the true beauty of the Tuscan region.
The owners were very hospitable and accommodating. They even gave us a great bottle of champagne upon our arrival! King Arthur (the resident Bernese Mountain Dog) was also a nice welcome when coming back to the villa from a day of exploring.
Our room was on the second floor and had a beautiful view of the Tuscan landscape. The room and bathroom were large, clean and beautifully decorated.
Breakfast at the hotel was always a treat. They provided delicious homemade pastries, fruits, meats, breads, etc. Breakfast is served buffet style, but a very nice waiter will bring you coffee, tea, or juice. You really feel pampered! The hotel is also home to one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. I think it may be a four or five star. We ate at the hotel one night and it was truly amazing. It is very quaint (maybe 7 table) and outdoors. Perfect for a nice summer evening in Tuscany.
Being in Italy for two weeks, this region and the hotel was, by far, the highlight of our honeymoon.

This is a wonderful hotel. Across the valley from Bagno Vignoni, with hugely expensive, rip off hotels, this is an immaculately converted post house, with just the right balance of modern furniture with Tuscan old school feel. The rooms are great, the size of the hotel (only about 16 rooms if I remember correctly) is intimate, a lovely pool to hang out by, and you can go across the baths if you are so disposed. It is also a short drive to San Quirico d'Orcia and Montalcino. The managers also make a huge difference - nothing is too small for them to do. Seriously, they take genuine pleasure in helping you and making your stay enoyable. And the restaurant is top quality - amazing ingredients, simply prepared. All for a reasonable price.....

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a walking holiday. The service generally was first class and the food excellent. Lovely outdoor pool overlooking Bagni Vignoni.
