“Exceptional hospitality - couldn't have asked for more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

A big thank you to Filippo for the warm welcome he gave to us last month - we only stayed a night but it was a definite highlight of our 6 day stay in Tuscany.

Three of us comfortably shared; the rooms are old fashioned with a modern feel, large double bed and an above average sized, well appointed bathroom. Free wifi was a nice feature, while more importantly the A/C kept the rooms comfortable and cool.

Breakfast on the quiet terrace was classic continental - fresh pastries, fruit and good coffee as you would expect. We were sorry we did not dine there the previous evening (we had other arrangements), but we did eat lunch here and it was delicious, very good value and the service top class. Our friends staying in the area had an evening meal here later in the week and returned to eat there was so good.

The Terrace pool and garden were divine in the sunshine, clean and quiet, with changing and shower facilities. Filippo even supplied us with (factor 50!) suncream when we ran out, and there was no problem staying on by the pool and using the shower facilities for a few hours before we left for the airport.

Highly recommended - and thank you to Filippo and family for their welcome, it really does make a difference.

The location of this B&B is excellent(between Firenze en Siena).There's a bus stop near the hotel to Firenze(6.20 eURO two way per person)if you don't want to look for parking in Firenze . The B&B has a closed parking.Filippo and his wife are very kind and can give you good information of Toscane . There's a nice swimming pool and sunbeds. You can have for free a towel foor te swimming pool. There's als a very tastefull restaurant "Borgo Antico" within very affortable prices . We will come back but if we can, we will avoid the month of august because it was too hot for us and the airco in the room was working but not hard enough.

It was a wonderful week in the heart of Chianti thanks to the owners of Antica Pieve B&B! I have selected this place randomly from the internet and what a luck I had! Great location, well appointed rooms, the best restaurant in the area, helpful staff and all that within the very affordable prices! What else could we ask for? Thank you Felipe and Katja and the rest of the crew! I'am already planning my next vacation in Tuscany...

My collegue and I spent two days there this week.
We were amazed by the immaculate cleaning of the rooms and the place all over.
Filippo , the owner , is a gentle and kind person and arrangend for us the dinner in a local restaurant and some shopping the following day in the local shop for some local products.
For the price we paid it has been a top experience.
The Garden and the swimming pool are total bliss.
I highly recomend this place for families as well

Antica Pieve B&B is a great location to stay visiting Tuscany, it's an oase of friendlyness and quiteness. The hosts are doing their utmost to help you and to make your stay unforgettable. Also very good food and nice wines. We will come bakc for sure when it's not so hot in the region.

We came in a party of 10 in June 2012 for a choir trip.
From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. The rooms were spotless, comfortable, with facilities worthy of a much more expensive hotel. There is also a pleasant lounge for guests.
The Antica Borgo restaurant with its shady courtyard was unmissable, and the food was very, very good indeed, and at a reasonable prices.
The pool, in a beautifully maintained garden, was used by all, and was, like the rest of the hotel well looked after and clean.
Tavarnelle may not be the most beautiful town in Chianti, but it has plenty of shops and restaurants, and good bus links to Florence, San Gimignano, Poggibonsi (with rail station) and many other villages in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the courtyard, which is a bit quieter, although the rooms on the road ar...

Great location. We ('young' couple) had a fantastic 3 day tour of Tuscany, mainly in Chianti and Val D'Orcia, during last days of April 2012. We found Antica Pieve B&B ideal place to stay and starting point for exploration of this part of Tuscany. Lady, who joined Antica Pieve B&B team short time ago, was very friendly and helpfull, especially when she helped us using her experience as tourist operator to define the best itinerary for our daily tour. Spending all our time from morning to evening around visiting cities, villages and splendid nature we found the breakfast very good and we were not hungry till late afternoon (ok, we stopped for just few beers before).
