“Good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2009

Radda is an excellent town to use as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside, and at the price of La Bottega Di Giovannino, was a very affordable one. If we were to go back we would probably try somewhere in Castellina. The woman in the tourism office in Radda was very helpful and set us up with a great wine tour.

Everything was average at La Bottega di Giovannino. It may have been because it was a busy time for the town (the hotel itself wasn't busy), but Monica and David were not nearly as friendly as others described in the reviews. It is a little loud at night due to the bar downstairs. Either way, well worth it for the price.

Monica and her brother David are the perfect hosts for a relaxing holiday in Tuscany. The hotel is great value, their bar is the meeting place for half the town and always a hive of activity. Both Monica and David speak English and proved to be very helpful. The rooms are well restored original rooms with their own bathrooms
The meals offer very good value.
Highly recommend

This was our first time in Italy. Our son lives in the Vicenzia area. He planned a three day stay in Tuscany and had stayed here before. We were not disappointed. The room was very nice and there are several places to enjoy the excellent Italian dishes. A great little family owned hotel. A true taste of Tuscany. Radda was a good place to base our tour of Chianti region. A vintage hill town. We would stay here again.

Several times I have stayed here, first with an organised tour, later I have organised tours myself. The location is beautiful, with views over the hills at one side and a view in the main street of the hamlet on the other side. The rooms are beautiful in their simplicity, quiet and spotless, just like a Tuscan B&B should be. The small town is a great spot for walking in the Chianti hills. (See the Lonely Planet: Walking in Italy, Chianti Classico). They are willing to take your luggage to the next hotel, if you are willing to pay a few euro's.
We have had an evening of wine tasting in their dining room, with home made dishes and three of four wines to taste, with explanations from Monica. It was just perfect!

This place is amazing for a budget Bed & Breakfast. We've been travelling Europe for over a year, and this was buy far the best "budget" accomodation we stayed in. Monica and the family are very friendly and we felt very welcome there. The location is super (center of town), free parking is nearby, and their wine bar is the cutest in Radda. Also, we had an amazing view of the countryside out of our window! The bathroon is private, but is across the hall. Super clean, and super quiet. Highly recommended!

This was by far the cheapest place we stayed in Italy. It was also surprisingly one of the nicest! The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and a good size - much better than places triple the price in Florence. The room was decorated with a rustic Tuscan style - wooden rafters included, which added to the atmosphere. Radda is a beautiful little town and a good base for exploring Chianti. Do yourself a favour and go to the informal pizzeria down the road for the pizza gigante. You might have to sit on plastic chairs, but the pizza was the best we had in Italy!

Great location as a base for discovering Chianti. Rooms were clean with a wonderful view towards Volpaia, comfortable bed and a good buffet breakfast selection. Although Monica speaks fluent English, she encouraged me to speak in my limited Italian...great confidence builder.
