“Excellent choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I have have just returned from six nights at the hotel. The whole stay was incredibly good value with spacious rooms including kitchenette, tasty breakfasts with lots of choice and excellent service. Valle del Buttero is within the picturesque, charming, medieval village of Capalbio which meant we could walk out and have around 10 great restaurants on our doorstep.

The pool area is really clean and relaxing despite the rather cold (!!) pool in September. The only slight negative was the bed which was too hard and not very comfortable. But that aside would not hesitate to recommend.

It is not often that a place exceeds all my expectations, but Valle del Buttero managed to do it! My husband and I live in Umbria, in Piegaro, and needed a quick two day break to explore something different. We found the Residence Valle del Buttero last minute and booked. The medieval town is very sweet perched over a valley known for its herdsmen, cowboys, called butteri. This resort overlooked a valley with horses too. Lovely suite with kitchenette, sitting room, balcony, large bedroom with canopy and wonderful bathroom. Immaculate suite with all the extras. Free WiFi and air conditioning. Amazingly huge buffet breakfast! The pool is just exquisite with a pool bar for snacks, drinks, ice cream. Huge fluffy pool towels provided. All the linens are first class. The bed was incredible, nice and firm with lots of pillows. TV in bedroom and also in living room. Coffee and drinks bar in the spacious lobby. Pool, ping pong, card games (looks like a very family-friendly place)! But we had a romantic getaway planned and it was just perfect for us. We could not believe the value offered for such a moderate price. The owners are so friendly and the staff very attentive and helpful. Short stroll inside the medieval walls of Capalbio, which is very historic and typical surrounded by walls, to fine restaurant where we enjoyed sitting on the terrace and watching the passing parade. Menus to all restaurants provided in the lobby along with loads of information about the area. Next morning after that very ample breakfast we went on our way to Monte Argentario and had a lovely day at the beach. I cannot say enough good things about our stay and I'm sure we will make this our "getaway" when we wish to explore the beautiful Maremma area of Southwest Tuscany. Lucky us to be only two hours away via Orvieto to what could be the best hotel in the Maremma!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite, well worth the few Euros extra! Lots of room and balcony. Ask for the hillside vi...

We stayed a Sunday and Monday night in July 2011. The staff are welcoming and helpful, and the room we had on the ground floor was fine, but it was disappointing to only get a view of the road outside. I'm sure the upper floors have nicer views of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. There is free parking, a nice pool, board games, a billiard table, table tennis and fussball, but really we hardly spent any time at the hotel. Unfortunately we didn't realize that breakfast wasn't included (though there is a sign saying this) because at 9 euros a pop we'd have preferred to get something in the village. The breakfast choice is okay but not very extensive. Capalbio is great though, amazing views, and we had some good food and wine. However I think it's wise to check what's going on at the time of year you go --- we were lucky that the summer events were in full swing, and some bars were open to 2am. We had some good seafood at the Sagre del Pesce nearby in Torba and it was great to be part of a local festival (again, lucky with the timing). We didn't fancy the Sagra della Lumaca (snail festival ;)

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel: it was perfect, we had an apartment on the garden, they set up a table outside for us for our breakfasts. And all our requests were met quickly and with a smile!
We will come back and recommend this hotel to our friends. Thank you Roberta and Sara!

Valle Del Buttero is really the only "hotel" in Capalbio. My wife and I were there in November, which is definitely their off season, but were really impressed by the staff, the size and quality of the rooms and the value was not to be beat.

If you are going to be in or around Capalbio in the offseason, I would heartily recommend Valle Del Buttero.

A very good hotel, albeit that the furnishings were a bit dated, but very clean and tidy. Lovely pool, very friendly service, would definitely book here again if in the vicinity.
