Collelungo
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Collelungo is breathtakingly beautiful and the seven nights we spent there was the highlight of our Italian holiday.
Fabiola could not have been more helpful - from bringing us fresh croissants from town in the mornings to arranging some cooking lessons for us with the lovely Simonetta - she just couldn't do enough to make our stay a memorable one.
Our villa was really clean and well presented, the grounds and gardens delightful and the scenery fantastic. We would return to this piece of Tuscan paradise in a heatbeat!!

Collelungo was beyond our expectations. It is the perfect place for a vacation in Tuscany. The property is spectacular with stone buildings surrounded by vineyard covered hills. The staff is unbelievably nice and helpful, and provide great eating recommendations and driving directions. It is within walking distance of the medieval village of Castellina in Chianti, which is one of the prettiest in the area. Ideal and central for all sightseeing in Tuscany. We were able to do drive to Florence, Siena, San Giminignano and the nearby towns and wineries of Radda, Panzano and Greve. Our apartment was neat and clean - as was the entire property. The rooms have views all over the vines and include sitting area, small dinining room table and kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There is also a swimming pool, barbecue and wine bar with their great Chianti Classico. Absolutely a beautiful property. We simply loved it.

Room Tip: Selva and Montone top ones.

My husband & I rented a car to explore Tuscany. We stayed at Collelungo on the recommendation of a friend. The facility was gorgeous - we enjoyed walking the surrounding vineyards. We loved it there- the staff went beyond the call of duty to orient us and to help us nagivate as we had trouble using our GSP! We loved the fact that our unit had a kitchenette and had to option to prepare some meals. Can definitely recommend Collelungo as a place from which to explore upper Tuscany!

Collelongo is situated a mile from the provincial road. To reach it you have to go over a rough road but no worries, every car can do it and it even is a big advantage because you will find a very nice and elegant place where you can really enjoy the sounds of silence. The typical Tuscan architecture apartments, they are original and must be really old, are very well maintained, clean and comfortable. Good beds! The friendly staff is at your service. The borgo has next to your own apartment a nice and elegant space for reading or using WiFi and enjoying a very good Collelungo wine, there are several types available, that you can chose at random from the 24 hour opened wine cellar. You just write down what you take and pay when you leave. Naturally you can also take a bottle to your apartment and sit outside in front of it enjoying the wonderfull scenery. There is even a sort of an open barn with great lounge seats where you can sit. Borgo Collelungo has a nice swimming pool with chairs, tables and stretchers offering enough sunshine or shadow. From the pool you will enjoy the view on Castelinna and at the vineyards surrounding Collelungo. Collelungo is a vineyard and you are invited to walk around free so you can see and experience how things work. Since you are between the vineyards you will also experience that small but totally harmless animals are around. The small but beautiful and totally harmless lizards you will see, and that will be found everywhere in Tuscany, the rabbits in the evening and sometimes even a small deer are only there because the atmosphere offers what everybody needs; clean, quite, at ease, honest and friendly. Nice Tuscan towns like Radda and Castellina can be reached within 10 minutes. Sienna is 20 KM. The great Chainti Classico vineyards that you can visit for winetasting are all around. And also very important; plenty of great quality restaurants in the immediate vincinity. My wife and I can't wait to go back!

A brilliant place to stay. Exquisite views, classic tuscan accomodation, very clean and beautifully presented. Wonderful staff who are very obliging. Close to everything, and Castellina is probably the pick of the chianti region, but so much to see and experience here. Would come back - without hesitation. Has to be one of the worlds best holiday destinations, and this villa just adds to the experience

My wife and I brought her parents to Collelungo Country Inn to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful stay. We arrived later than expected and the front desk was closed, but a note and key for our two bedroom apartment were left for us. Though we arrived after hours, we were pleasantly surprised with the access to the comfortable, well furnished lounge complete with library, desktop computer with internet access, television, and honor bar well stocked with Collelungo wines. We awoke the next morning realizing we were staying at the quintessential Tuscan property. Days consisted of walks on the property, wine tasting and watching the activities of a working vineyard along with plenty of picture taking. We would definitely recommend Collelungo and we plan to return soon.

We stayed here for 5 nights during our honeymoon. The accommodation is set on a huge winery property and is incredibly peaceful and quiet. We had some of our best nights sleeps during our stay. Villa's are quite old and so too the decor as you would expect. They did have character, however if you decide to stay be sure to purchase basic items such as tea, coffee, bread etc in nearby town. All these are self-service, very little was actually provided within the rooms.

There is a nice pool on the property with deck chairs and so forth. Wine and beer is available at very reasonable prices.

The main drawbacks were around the service we experienced. Reception is only open for a few hours a day and it was annoying having to ask for things like toilet paper etc which were meant to be available in the shared laundry, however supplies weren't replaced enough. When we did have to ask for things it feel as though we were putting Koutar out of her way, so didn't make the experience all that comfortable.

A car is essential if you plan to stay here. You cannot walk to the nearest town. Either hire a car of private driver. We used Hills and Roads who were exception and we have posted a separate review on their service.
