“A Great Place to Stay in Tuscany”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

We chose this hotel based on a recommendation from a friend, which I owe a big thank you for it. The hotel is located on a hill near the main road from Colle Val D'Elsa to Volterra, about 15 minutes drive from each. It’s about 30 minutes drive to Siena and 10 minutes to San Gimignano. The room was specious and had air condition which we didn’t use because there was a nice cool breeze blowing. The hotel has a decent size pool and provides free Wi-Fi. The highlight of the stay was the breakfast. Big variety of tasty item prepare mostly by the family that own the place. We enjoyed our stay and we wish we had time to stay more days there.

We have stayed here twice and each time have booked a balcony room, and its very peaceful,fabulous weather each time.
The added bonus of a pool.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days in July with my parents and 2 young kids. The hotel is located right between San Gimignano and Volterra - about 15 km from either place, and about half an hour from Colle Val D'Elsa. The hotel is right next to a winery in the quaint town of San Gimignano; the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean - the breakfast is delicious as others have noted. The pool is beautifully maintained and the hosts Luca and Anna went out of their way to make it comfortable for us; there is a gym next to the pool. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in Tuscany.

The hotel doesn't have an attached restaurant outside of the breakfast buffet but there are a couple of nice restaurants nearby - Tre Archi the only one within walking distance.

The hotel has a beautiful website and would recommend booking directly with them - we used hotels.com and they charged us almost an extra $500 in service charges for the booking (2 rooms for 4 days)

My husband and I were celebrating both our 60th birthdays and 30yrs together and, after advising the hotel, they kindly upgraded us and surprised us with champagne and strawberries awaiting in our room. The location was perfect for us and wished we had stayed longer. The breakfast was the best we had in our month long travel throughout Italy. We definitely would recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in Tuscany.

a nice hotel in rural Tucany, within esy travelling distance of St Gimignano

but why metal grills over all windows and doors and panic alarms in the bedrooms which made us feel quite wary.

We booked a large room which was near the pool , the bed was very hard and uncomfy.

The hotel served great breakfasts and large cups of coffee in the evening, but one evening meal was disappointing.

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Tuscany, and we can honestly say Hotel le Volpaie was the best hotel we stayed in. Yes, we agree with everyone who reviewed the hotel that the breakfasts were the best we had in our entire trip. There is another upside to this place. . . location. My husband is a photographer, and he was able to visit prime sites in 15 minutes or less in the early morning. Check out the Tre Arches restaurant just a short walk from the hotel. Both places made our trip memorable, and we will return.

Just got back from staying 5 nights at Le Volpaie and wish I was still there.
The hotel is small but has everything you need for a relaxing break. The cleanliness of the hotel is exceptional and the pool area is very tidy and pleasant to be around. Much has been said in other reviews about the breakfast and I can do nothing more than to endorse those comments, it is one the best breakfast selections that I have seen in Italy.
The location is sleepy and quiet but walking up to the excellent Tre Archi restaurant is pleasant simply by saying "buona sera" to the local residents sitting on their own terraces.
The best thing about Le Volpaie is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and the personal touch is spot on. Thank you so much Anna & Lucca for a great stay and we will definitely see you again.
Just one last point some reviewers seem to think the likes of Siena are an hour plus away, they are not at all having driven to Siena twice in our stay and made it in 35 mins each time. You need a car to make the best of Le Volpaie but so many fantastic places are so close at hand and the welcome you get after a days exploring is fabulous.
