“Atop a hill surrounded by vineyards, pure bliss.”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This place is like something from a movie scene. The hotel is very charming and has the most romantic atmosphere, a beautiful setting in a perfect location.The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Radda makes a good base to explore Chianti. Be sure to visit San Gimingano and Volpaia, a picturesque wine estate dating from the 12th century. San Gimingano is close enough for a day visit, I would not recommend staying over in San Gimingano, rather stay a night or two longer at Relais Vignale. It does not get any better than this!

Four of us traveled to Tuscany and found the villa we had previously reserved and paid for (Villa Vistarenni) was a nightmare, so we left immediately, and found this charming hotel 4 miles away in Radda. The Vignale was very clean, quiet, with exceptional service. The staff was incredibly helpful also with any of our needs and many insights of Radda. Did I mention the excellent breakfast and pool side snacks from their kitchen! I am Italian, so I know good food! Although we had a very bad experience with the Vistarenni, we got very lucky with the Vignale! This hotel is not to be missed.

Magnificent location and historic charm. Warm welcome, great service, restaurant ok, terrace has an amazing view, internet only in communal areas, airconditioning worked well but was very noisy. Breakfast was great and plenty of everything.

We've just returned from our 2nd stay here & have to say that it is as lovely as ever. Setting is second to none & the hotel staff were helpful & friendly & went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we wanted, nothing was too much trouble. On asking for train info to Florence we were given a printout with relevant timings & fares & were taught how to ask for tickets in Italian! The only slight downside was the restaurant, the food was excellent but on 2 nights we had to wait for a very long time for our main courses, once for an hour, the second night an hour & a half. Not sure why this was & we did highlight this as it put a bit of a damper on our last night. Even so I would still return as this has been the ONLY blip we have encountered here. Radda itself is a pretty town with several nice restaurants. Ask the hotel to point you in the direction of a local bar/restaurant, think that the name is Giovannis, or something similar. It is excellent, good food & great value for money.

Room Tip: We have stayed here twice, firstly in a junior suite & this time a deluxe room. Would say that t...

We LOVED this place! Drove to the hotel from Florence and were greeted by the very friendly staff. Swift check-in and they carried our bags to our room. We walked around the quaint town of Radda with a nice lunch and wine tasting before plunging in the pool at the hotel with poolside drinks and snacks while taking in the views of the Chianti rolling hills. The rooms were perfect and we had a nice view of the hills, plus our A/C was strong and kept us cool. The restaurant onsite is wonderful for dinner and they put out a huge spread for breakfast, too. It is great for couples, but friendly for families as well. Will definitely be back!!!

My husband, two grown sons and I stayed at the Relais Vignale in May, 2012 for three nights. It is lovely and feels very "homey" although it's a hotel. The rooms are quite nice and the breakfast is fabulous. The patio area has gorgeous views of the Chianti hillside. It is centrally-located for day day trips around Tuscany. There's a beautiful pool although we didn't get a chance to use it, Radda is a charming village. We highly recommend the Relais Vignale.

After spending 3 weeks in Europe and deciding what our favorite place to stay, this has got to be one of the highlights. We stayed 2 nights & 3 days.

The city of Radda in Chianti was stunning. It's on a picturesque hill in the middle of Tuscany and their are views from all sides. The restaurants are fantastic and the gelato was delicious. This is a perfect hotel for a weekend getaway or for some downtime from all of the "touristy/museums/walking" in your vacation.

We rented a car from Rome, drove here and then drove into Florence. We needed the weekend break from the city and we got it here. We were there over my birthday and they left a bottle of wine in our room for us. A very special touch. The room wasn't completely updated, but it felt super rustic and it was very clean. It overlooked the hills of Tuscany on this beautiful balcony. The main hotel, across the street, had the restaurant, pool and FREE wifi!

We did spend one of our days in San Gimignano, which was about a 1/2 hour a way. (It was a perfect 1/2 day trip.)

The pool was awesome, because of the views and you could tell that most of the hotel guests came there to relax at the pool, drink incredible wine and have a nice quiet getaway. There were a few children there, but it was mostly couples (generally older), but I didn't feel out of place (we are in our mid-30's). I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. It was a fantastic hotel, in a beautiful location with a great restaurant, delicious breakfast (except the scrambled eggs!) and stunning views. Don't hesitate!
