We were in June 2014. We strongly recommend this hotel. Clean room, masterfully prepared food for dinner, quiet, beautiful views of the surrounding forests. Wonderful and helpful staff. Help and advise you on any matter. Even how to purchase the best Tuscan ham. Will help arrange a ticket to the gallery UFFIZI. Good base to Florence, Siena and to the best wineries in the region Chianti. Surely we be back.

Tenuta Di Ricavo is simply, one of Chianti's loveliest quant rustic hideaways! If like me, you are tearing your hair out as you can't choose where to stay given the vast choice of hotels in Chianti, look no further! You will not regret staying here!

Silvia and Christina made our stay unforgettable and made a great effort to welcome us and make sure we were looked after. They were very attentive and they are outstanding in the service they offer, quality and location.

The rooms are quaint and rustic and you also have the luxury of two swimming pools, out in the open with the Tuscan countryside all around you! If you want to forget the stress of work and life in general, I thoroughly recommend this venue. Trust me, you will love it!!! We had one of the most relaxing charming romantic holidays of our lives!

There are also two hikes you can do plus visit a local wineyard, which TDR will gladly organise for you!!! Chastellina in Chianti is also a beautiful small town and 5 minutes away. If you close your eyes and imagine what a Tuscan scene looksl like, this is what you will see when you visit.

I can't say enough good things about this place! My only regret is that I don't live in Chianti, but we will return one day I promise!!! Maybe with our kids! :-)

Many people don't realize that this was once a working Tuscan village complete with a Padrone Manse and farmers cottages. It goes back 1000 years. The entire town was purchased by a European couple who wanted to bring back the village, and manse, as a vacation home for the couple and their children. When the husband died, the wife decided to transform the property into a pensione and eventually a resort. Today, the manager of the hotel, Christina, is the granddaughter of the original owners. Her son, Allesandro, manages the dining room. They are wonderful people who will cater to your every need. If you are looking for a quiet, out-of-the way vacation experience, this is it. The rooms are spacious, the food in terrific, and you are within one half hour of many Chiati villages. A truly shabby chic authentic Tuscan village experience.

Room Tip: Wi-fi available but not in the room. Go for any room with it's own terrace.

While most of the other people at this hotel were couples, our family couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and we really enjoyed getting drinks outside on the patio. The staff could not have been more helpful, the only complaint that we had was the fact that you could only get wifi in the main areas of the hotel and not in the rooms, then again it was very nice to be disconnected for a while! Would definitely recommend if you are going to be in the Chianti region with your family or significant other!

This was a great location and very close to Castellina a wonderful little town and good base of operations if you have a car. The hotel was great and the people were nice and accommodating. Our only complaint was the furniture in our room was very dated. The armoire had an odd smell and the mattress on the bed was very old and uncomfortable. Breakfast was great and everyone was helpful.

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful place for 2 nights and loved it. The breakfasts were good and we had a great dinner at their restaurant each night. We were there at the end of their season and it was a bit cold so did not use either of the 2 outdoor pools but they looked so inviting! There's a small fitness room which we saw but did not use. We had a nice large bedroom with separate sitting room. There was free WIFI in the room. The staff were all very nice and the grounds were so beautiful. It would be a good place to stay for most of a Tuscany trip as you can easily drive to other small towns.

Our group stayed here for 4 nights recently, and just loved it. Christina & Allesandro make you feel like you at their home. They are most gracious hosts. The accomodations are outstanding, as is the restaurant (we had 2 dinners there in a relaxed, no hurry atmosphere. The breakfast are also great...plus you have your "own" table at every meal.

The location is very convenient to Siena, and other hill towns, and close to Castellina in Chianti for alternative/off site dining.

We will diffently stay here on our next trip to Tuscany, and recommend you do too.

Ciao to Christina & Allesandro
