Hotel Colle Etrusco Salivolpi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Just a 2 min drive outside Castellina in Chianti, it has wonderful grounds with a large swimming pool and extensive lawns. The property is built around a real Tuscan farm house, our section had a date in the 1700's. We had a large room with a view over the vinyards and fantastic bed for 3 glorious nights. We spent our days touring the local hill towns and watching the local festivals, just perfect!

We liked the hotel immediately after arriving. It has a good location, just outside Castellina and a very good swimming pool (which we needed after 60 km cycling in the heat). Staff was nice and helpfull and our bicycles found a nice place in the cellar.
I would have liked to give this hotel a very good or an 'excellent', but I can't because there was no air conditioning in the room. There was a simple fan which was running continuously (very nice it was there!), but this could not cope with the outside heat. I think the air conditioning would not have been a problem in normal times (Castellina is at 600 meters), but unfortunately there was a heat wave (over 36 degrees Celcius). As a consequence we had not a very good night of sleep. Comparing with other hotels we were this week, I can only value it as 'average' - although with less heat you will probably find it excellent.

thank you for sharing his experience of stay at our Hotel Salivolpi. We are very pleased that you have enjoyed the perfect location in the heart of Chianti Classico, a few kilometers away from the magnificent cities such as Siena and Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra and Monteriggioni.

His remark on the air conditioning is very right: the times are no longer normal! We hope to be able to accommodate you in collest time, where you can enjoy the excellence of our small three star hotel located in the heart of Chianti Classico world!

Cozy and comfortable hotel in the heart of Tuscany. Only 5 minutes walk to the city center, Castellina in Chianti. Clean, fresh and very nice with a great pool. Very good service and good italian breakfast. The hotel doesn´t have a restaurant, but there are many in the neighborhood. Bar available. I can really recommend this hotel!

Unfortunately, due to a very long flight delay, we arrived at this lovely little hotel mid morning after a night spent at Pisa airport waiting for the car hire to open at 8am, followed by a two hour drive to Castellina. We were hungry and exhausted, but were greeted and warmly welcomed by Simona on reception who was incredibly helpful. She arranged for us to go straight to our room to freshen up and then to have a late breakfast, which was very welcome. This high standard of care continued throughout our stay and we have to say that every member of staff was attentive, polite, helpful and friendly at all times. The hotel itself is quaint and typically rustic tuscan. Spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The pool and gardens were beautifully maintained and the cold buffet breakfast plentiful and fresh - and always served with a cheery smile! We had a room on the front of the building, but the road in front of the hotel is very quiet at night and noise was never a problem. There was not air con in our room, but a big ceiling fan and a smaller desktop fan helped to keep the room cool and we didn't feel this was a problem. We threw the windows and shutters wide open every night and enjoyed the night air coming in - and no bugs at all !! The location of the hotel is great - a 10 minute ( downhill) stroll to the village with a nice range of restaurants, ranging from cheap and cheerful to Michelin starred. Something for everyone and very convenient not to have to drive so that you can enjoy the local Chianti. Overall, we had a lovely stay and would ( will) definitely return in the future.

We had a wonderful holiday staying at this hotel. It was near all the significant sights and close to the village and the restaurants and icecream parlour. The pool was crystal clean and in a beautiful setting. The staff were fabulous anf a special mention for Sylvia who made our family so welcome and ensured we had everything we needed.
The hotel is clean, comfortable and had a good mix of people staying. There are some rooms with airconditioning... we would recommend asking for these if you are staying in 38 degrees as we did!

A wonderful place to stay and a wonderful base to visit Tuscany from. Thank you.

Room Tip: choose a room with air con if staying in hot weather!
