This review is for the hotel. We did not do the wine tour (surprisingly!), and my review of the restaurant can be read in the relevant Tripadvisor page. Once through the door of the monastery, which brings you onto an old and charming courtyard, the silence takes hold of you; we slept like babies. The reception (area) is basic, but... More

One hour, 10 euros, we had 3 glasses of wine, by request. The tour of the property was fascinating and very informative. Very friendly family member giving the tour and asking all of our questions. Small group. Wait outside the gate -- it will seem no one is there but promptly on the assigned hour, the gate is opened and... More

Very disappointed in our recent stay at this hotel. When we arrived it was very unclear where the reception area was. We located the restaurant and was informed to walk to another door and press the reception button. This did not work and all the other signs were in Italian. As many of us stood at the door waiting to... More

Really worth going for a wine tour and tasting. Not expensive, interesting history that goes well back in the centuries and not a boring tour at all. Well explained and Sabrina, our tour guide, was really prepared on any question we asked. Highly recommended 🍷

Stayed on the property June 16-19th for a wedding. Enchanting property – every brides dream! The grounds are immaculate. Very charming property. Staff very nice and helpful. Wish we could have tried some of the vintage Chianti in the owners wine cellar.

It was really cool to stay in a monastery but we were there the first weekend they opened for the season so it was freezing cold in the room. We tried to make a fire in the public fireplace room which was all set up but we couldn't find matches and the office closes at night sadly so we didn't... More

We went on a guided tour on the property, and ended with a wine tasting in their beautiful garden. The tasting session was average. We got to say that we were a little confused by how the guide talked about how Badia a Coltibuono is all about the organic winemaking, and how horrific non-organic wine production is on the tour,...

The property and it's history is quite interesting but I think that is where it ends though. Reputation of the restaurant (which I highly recommend) was the driving force to stay here as there is nothing else close by. Stayed here last Friday evening in May 2016. I am glad that we arrived shortly before 6PM when the office closes... More

This ancient monastery has been welcoming travelers for at least 1,000 years. Even more remarkable, new archaeological discoveries show that Etruscans lived here 2,000 to 3,000 years ago. For the weary traveler, what matters today is that just as in ancient times this beautiful place will renew the body and soul of the traveler, with fine food, fine wine and... More

This is a lovely old castle with a rich 800+ year history. Just off of 429 and easy to reach, the first building that greets you is a small store selling wines, vin santo, olive oils, ceramics and other odds and ends. It also offers wine tastings. We tasted both wines and olive oils, and a little grappa, before making... More
