Reviewed September 20, 2013

We spent a night in Castellina as part of our honeymoon trip through Tuscany. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we knew we had made the right decision. The quaint farmhouse feel was exactly what we were looking for. Silvia on the front desk was warm and welcoming and gave us all the information we needed to have a great evening. We were kindly upgraded to a better room, which was a good size, clean and had an air-con. The grounds and swimming pool were great, and the buffet breakfast in the next day was the best we had the whole holiday. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. There is parking on site, and the hotel is a nice scenic short walk from the centre of town. One of the best parts of this stop-over was the Gelateria at the end of the road (via Fiorentina), just before you go into town, it was the best we had the entire holiday! We would definitely stay here again!

Dear lobas2000, thank you for choosing us as a part of your honeymoon trip and thank you for your nice and enthusiastic review about your stay at our country Hotel Salivolpi: we can understand that even one single night left good memories of us! Glad that you appreciated the warm welcome from Silvia, with her useful and practical indications for a perfect stay. And also glad you liked the comforts of old-country-styled rooms, the well kept grounds and the whole area around the hotel. Our healthy and various breakfast buffet then gives our guests the good morning for a wonderful day of discovery. The small town of Castellina in Chianti then offers a large variety of places where tasty dishes of local food and yummy ice creams do reign. We will be happy to see you again in the future, you will be most welcome, for sure!!

my family and I recently stayed a few nights at salivolpi. the place was rustic, natural, and beautiful. however it was the staff working at the hotel which made the difference, in particular Silvia who was patient, supportive, and always so pleasant - especially with our 3 year old son. we for sure would go back again!

I had been meaning to post a review forever but I knew it was time to do so when
my husband and I found ourselves so fondly remembering our relaxing stay in Castellina.
Our room was quaint, quiet and nicely decorated. Bed was comforatable and we loved sleeping with the windows open for the nights breeze.
The grounds are lovely and well kept. We enjoyed ending the days adventure just relaxing on the lawn with a bottle of wine beofre dinner.
Sylvia was just wonderful setting up wine tours,dinners and great exploring day trips. We ate and drank and ate and drank...she did not steer us wrong once!!
We also had breakfast with the room which was a perfect little start to the day.
The staff were friendly ,fun, full of great advice and ideas for your day trips!
Wonderful hotel great basecamp for exploring the area!
We'll be back!

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at the hotel. After modern, air conditioned hotel rooms in Rome and Venice, I was a little disappointed not to have another air conditioned room, but the fan in the room was adequate and that is the only minor negative thing I can think of to write.

Everyone was friendly and helpful and went out of their way to reserve tickets for the museums in Florence for us while we went to Pisa for the day.

The situation of the hotel is great, with a walk to restaurants, shops and bars in the lovely village/town close by. The gardens are lovely and there are lots of sun beds dotted around allowing you to relax in peace or you can use the beds and shade by the pool which was small but lovely.

There is a lovely terrace to sit on for evening drinks or coffee, and tables in the garden which we used onto eat a lunchtime pic-nic with food bought from the local co-op and we were always wished Bon Appertite by all the staff who passed by, making us feel quite at home!

The food for breakfast was fine and as expected, with the service and desire to help outstanding.

All in all the situation of the hotel, the relaxed atmosphere and the kindness of all the staff would definitely allow me to highly recommend this hotel and I would happily return.

Room Tip: Room 32 has a very large bathroom with a window allowing the air to move around the bedroom!

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a week in August. Although the rooms are small, they are comfortable and nicely decorated. If you are travelling in the summer months, better to get AC as the rooms directly under the roof can get really hot. Nice and clean swimming pool. The hotel is located about 1 km out of the centre of the village and although it can be a bit far to walk, it did not really bother us. I am sorry to say that we would have been happy to give this hotel a good review had it not been for one the staff in charge (Silvia) who was very rude to us throughout our stay. Perhaps she was tired or she just took a dislike to my husband and I for asking to change room but her attitude nearly ruined our stay. At one point I thought of leaving the hotel early (which I would have done had our room not been prepaid). This was the third hotel we stay in during our two weeks holiday in Tuscany and the only time where we encountered such a problem.

Room Tip: Rooms not face the parking are more quiet and have a better view.

We loved staying in this beautiful hotel. Our room was clean and quite large with a very large bathroom. We loved the location-- the town was a very walkable distance of maybe a mile. The town has at least 5 restaurants all with very good food and wine. We were also able to walk to a winery from the hotel. The scenery was amazing. I would stay here again in a heart beat, and we would recommend it to everyone. The very fair price was an added bonus.
