Hotel Belvedere Di San Leonino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Charming hotel, with excellent service. They have a beautiful pool, which we couldn't take advantage of because it was chilly, but we still enjoyed hanging out and observing the beautiful surroundings. When we visited in May, the cherry trees were ripe with fruit and we took full advantage of that! Our room was very comfy and the hotel is located right in the middle of the Italian wine country... couldn't have asked for anything better.

I stayed with my husband in this hotel two days the last summer in our one week holiday in Italy.
The region is so beautiful, the landscapes also; the position of the hotel can't be better.
The room spacious and with antique furniture.
We had on our first day dinner in the hotel restaurant and we were happy with our choise because the tuscan food that they served was delicious. You can drink at the bar a glass of chianti wine from their production; they do the wine with the grapes from the vineyards all around the hotel!!
The staff was very kind and helpful.
If we will be back in Italy, for sure we will try to pass at least one day in this wonderful place!!

Dear Barna A.,
Thank You for Your kind words! Our Tuscan cook thanks You too and as You say, at the hotel we serve the very good wines from our own production and we would like to add the information, that our guests can have free visit and guided tasting in our wine-shop “la cantinetta del Belvedere di San Leonino” in the old part of Castellina in Chianti, on the medieval road "Via delle Volte".
We will wait for Your next visit!

So often we see those beautiful pictures of Tuscany where ancient stoned-wall mansions (the local "casali") are lying among mild hills, colored of grapes, olive trees and cypress... When I approached Belvedere di San Leonino I could not believe to my eyes: the gorgeous countryside was spotted by these wonderful old mansions, and one of these was the hotel itself, a 600 years old building with classic traditional rooms and ancient furniture. I felt to be inside a dream. I had a warm welcome and was ready to explore all the area that, being a gem itself, is in the heart of Tuscany and close to so many classic Tuscany spots. I had a wonderful stay. Car is mandatory, there is a free parking, WiFi access is available and the area is also covered by 3G access. My room had an efficient heating system, airconditioning, fridge and all the comforts so this location could be rated 4 stars rather than 3.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 31 (superior). This room is perfect, has a window (not big) oriented to the sunrise...

My wife and I have been honeymooning in Europe for the last month and stayed in some wonderfully unique accommodations. We were in Florence one night and had the urge the next morning to get out into the country. We booked the first hotel we saw online in the Chianti region and our spontaneity was rewarded with the Belvedere di San Leonino. We just checked out this morning and already want to go back!

After we overshot our bus stop out of Siena, a hotel staff member PICKED US UP from Castellina so we wouldn't have to pay for a taxi to come get us all the way from Siena (take a taxi directly to the hotel). Amazing customer service right from the start. The hotel itself stands alone on a hilltop overlooking the Chianti region and has stunning views. The rooms are spacious and make you feel almost instantly that you have your own little Tuscan villa. The food is outstanding and the bar is open all day.

After being on the go for 4 weeks, I couldn't have dreamt up a better place to unwind and recharge. Best value for your money that we got all trip so far and the staff are truly something special. We wanted to rent a scooter one day and the nice lady in the reception area (so sorry I'm forgetting your name!) set it up for us and even dropped us off at the nearest bus stop in her own vehicle. Then, last night before heading over to dinner, we asked a staff member what the most efficient way to Rome was from the hotel. She informed us and we went on our way. Then, after dinner we went into the office to get something and the same woman was on the phone talking to someone about a route to Rome. She hung up and told us a better way than she had mentioned before. The fact that while we were at dinner she was checking on this for us still is remarkable to me. Such attention to detail we won't soon forget!

Thanks to everyone at the Belvedere for creating a memorable 4 days for us...I think we found a place that we'll be returning to for a long time.

Room Tip: Room 18 is away by itself and has a small patio overlooking the rolling hills. Great for 2 people.

Dear Jingram12,
We thank you very much for your heartwarming comment that stimulates us to always give the best service whenever we can!
We agree with you, some rooms are really like having your own little Tuscan home and we would like to add that also the classic rooms without patio are very comfortable, whilst enjoying the surroundings, sitting in the panoramic garden.
We are sure you already dream of your next holiday with us and we will be very happy to welcome you again and again …maybe this time with a rental car, as there is a long list of beautiful romantic Tuscan villages and hamlets waiting for you!

We picked the hotel as our base to explore Chianti. The location is indeed great and easily accessible. The property is well maintained and has some rooms and a nice pool that overlooks the rolling tuscan hills. Hotel staff particularly the receptionists are friendly and helpful.
On the second night, we decided to stay over at another hotel where we had cooking lesson that afternoon. The next day, the receptionist even called us to make sure we were fine.
There are really loads of hotels in the Chianti region. But one that combines location, service and good view at such a price tag - hard to come by.

Exploring Tuscany, we came upon the Belvedere unexpectedly. We were so amazed at the extraordinary views from this charming spot that we went in to ask about prices and reservations for the future. That was twenty years ago, and we have returned many, many times, because it is so perfectly positioned for the most exquisite experience of Tuscan light and warmth that can be had. That warmth extends to the welcome extended by Christina and the rest of the staff! It is comforting and lovely to be greeted by the same people in reception each year. The services they extend to each traveler are gracious, helpful and generous.

The Belvedere is in a great position for visiting Florence, Sienna, Radda, Panzano and other charming hill towns. It is always welcoming to arrive back at the Belvedere after a day of exploring. The lounge is comfortable, the pool area beautiful, with a perfect view of the Tuscan hills. It is beautiful to experience what we call the "orange hour" as the sun sets behind a tree tinged with orange leaves. Dinner under the umbrellas on the back lawn is fantastic.

You will love the old world charm of the Belvedere with modern amenities and rooms that are large and well-equipped. The stone farm buildings with well-laid out rooms have antique armoires and comfortable beds. The hotel is situated next to a vineyard and has a lot of lovely space to walk around and view the old well, the terraces below the hotel and neighboring stone buildings.

The Belvedere is a restful place with plenty to please the senses!

Dear Lonnie and Paul S.,

You are such lovely people and so are your words! We always wondered how to describe the hotel to convince people that Belvedere di San Leonino is the obvious choice for their Chianti Holidays….now we know… a review like Yours is our best and most credible publicity.
Thank you so much for this and we are looking forward to meet again !

Absolutely loved our time in the Hotel Belvedere Di San Leonino. I've stayed in many places but this was one of my favorites for sure. The staff was super nice and accommodating. I can't wait to visit it again! I would never dream of staying anywhere else. Excellent service, delicious food, and really good wine. I highly recommend to anyone traveling Tuscany.
