I cannot believe how gorgeous this 1000 year old abbey was. The sitting rooms and garden were beautiful. The room was spacious, and the natural spring water in the decanter was a nice touch. If you cannot stay overnight, at least have dinner with wine tasting in the restaurant.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We were turned away at the door. Here's why:. because you have to give money to the church in order to even WALK in the gardens. This is classic "church with their hand out" gimme gimme gimme. After driving up a long and winding road hoping for something nice at the end... We

Response from badiacoltibuono, Direttore at Badia a Coltibuono
Responded Oct 19, 2018
Dear Guest, sorry you were disappointed after your visit to Badia a Coltibuono, but we need to make a couple of things clear: the church belongs to the Curia of Florence. The villa is a private property since 1846. The villa is an now an agriturismo: it means that guests can be staying in house. For the tranquillity and security of our guests, we do not allow external people to walk in the gardens or to visit the cellars on their own. Our guests extremely appreciate this. In order to give the possibility to visit it, we organize daily many guided tours and tastings of wine and olive o il. This is clearly explained on the information sheet with time table and costs hung next to the entrance door. The revenue is invested in the preservation of such an historical and unique building. Very kind regards. Patrizia Trazzi Hospitality Manager

This is a bucket list day. You start with a tour of the old (1064) buildings that were once a monastery and are now a wine storage facility and hotel - with a cooking school. Bernadette sounds like a New Yorker with an Italian accent, she is amazing and has probably fogotten

Stayed here for only one night during travel through Tuscany. Obviously being as old as it is... pushing 1000 years, the amenities are older. Very cool to see how they’ve updated. The restaurant was great, make sure to get a reservation. And definitely take the full/longer wine

My husband and I spent five nights here in September. The historic building oozes character - amazing period details in gorgeous public rooms. The gardens are also stunning and the views across surrounding countryside quite extraordinary. While we didn't use it, the pool looked

Best way to get there from central Florence?
Hi from Badia a Coltibuono, from central Florence you have two options (if you do not have a car): 1. catch a train to Montevarchi (from 25 to 60 minutes journey, depending on the train) and then catch a taxi to Badia a Coltibuono. about 20 minutes driving - € 50 one way. 2. catch a taxi from Florence- about 1 and a half hour driving - € 120 one way. If instead you have a car, take the A1 (autostrada del sole) direction Rome. Exit Valdarno. Follow the road Via Chiantigiana direction Gaiole in Chianti. Continue 6 km after the village of Cavriglia. At the junction to Radda in Chianti turn right and immediately after right again following the panels Badia a Coltibuono. Very kind regards Badia a Coltibuono.
