Pieve di Caminino Historic Farm
Reviewed October 22, 2011

When we drove through the gate at the front of the property we really did not know what to expect, as we had booked a long time before our eventual stay. The place took our breath away. The scenery was amazing, from the forest to the olive groves to the sunset. The monastery conversion has been done exceptionally and the people who run the place have great respect for the traditions and architecture. The room was nicely decorated, some might say old but it suited the theme of the resort.

The rooms were always cleaned and the breakfast was decent. The building had shifted and the door was a little hard to open and close. The nice man who brought us breakfast to us every morning was always unbelievably friendly and cheerful.

One suggestion is to follow Emy's suggestions with the local food and activities. He recommended the restaurant Il Corso, just up the hill, it was AMAZING! We even bought some of their home made olive oil.

We just returned after a 3 night stay. After Montalcino, we were a bit disappointed by the area --- this is not the prime location for wines and the countryside is still pretty but not in comparison to Montalcino. The resort is a bit worn--the glass door to our room had a large crack, the faucet in the kitchenette fell out spilling water on the counter (it was however fixed the next day), and the grounds could be better kept. The room had charming (if somewhat old) furnishings, except for the large white particle-board wardrobe best fitted for a college dorm room. The best part of the room were the views from our terrace (we were in Bifora) from which on clear days one can see the sea and Elba. The other complaint was that since there was no wi-fi in the room, we went to the reception room, which was open to see if service was available there. Given that it is where the hostess received us, we thought it was a common room, especially since the door was unlocked. When she found us there, she was displeased and indicated that guests were only permitted there with one of the "owners" (I assumed she was one of them?) because the room is a "museum". She escorted us out.

Room Tip: The Bifora probably has the best view. There is a new "Library" room being prepared with...

PRCaminino, Proprietario at Pieve di Caminino Historic Farm, responded to this reviewResponded October 22, 2011

Dear Guests,
Although I am used to read much more positive reviews than yours, I thank you very much for your time in writing on Tripadvisor about your stay . Your opinion is very helpful in order to avoid that future guests will expect something that here it is not provided.
Therefore, I would like to point out that:
1) Wi-fi here is totally free, while normally in other hotels and/or specialty lodging is an extra (I did not read any positive word about this on your review...). Moreover, it is our choice not to have it working in the bedrooms of the suites: we are still not sure about eventual negative effects of it on the sleep of people who come here for total relaxation out of their offices.
2) Yes, we welcome our guest on arrival in the MUSEUM, built in the former XIth century Romanesque church: that is a space that later can be visited during office time on request (it needs a guided tour as it exposes law protected antiques and works of art). Since we rent independent accommodations and each one of them has its own comfortable sitting room and terrace or patio, a "common room" is not provided in our specialty lodging, while guests have 1500 acres of great oudoor space to share.
3) Tastes are tastes, and Montalcino is indeed a GREAT location (not far from us); anyway, many TOP Italian wines are made right around us (Moris farms, Ampeleia, Rocca di Frassinello, Tenuta di Montemassi) plus many other smaller producers who are doing a great job (their wines are not still advertised but they are really good). Guests have simply to ask us more about it, and we will be glad to guide them for an excellent and unforgettable wine experience.
Best wishes,
Emy

If we could have stayed forever we would have. This was a true paradise because of the surroundings and the hospitality of our hosts. Emy, his family and staff created the most romantic and welcoming environment we could have possibly imagined. For those who prefer a quiet holiday this is the ultimate escape. We roamed the forest, the olive groves, and the vineyards of this rustic country estate to our hearts' content. Every step we took demanded that we capture the beauty and history of these lovely grounds on film.
Emy was also instrumental in helping us arrange our dream wedding in the nearby historic village of Massa Marittima. Emy and his wife and brother-in law were our translators and witnesses for our wedding, and they helped with a hairdresser the morning of the ceremony. The entire trip was truly a dream come true, and we are looking forward to celebrating our anniversary at this beautiful resort!

We stayed here on our honeymoon in June of 2011 and both agree that we could not have picked a better spot! We spent half our honeymoon in Rome, but wanted to spend the other half somewhere in the countryside; somewhere quiet and romantic, but also somewhere that would make a good home base for day trips to other areas. We could not have picked a better location, or a better place to stay!

The thing that impressed us most was the incredible reception we had on arrival. Emy and Dani are the most gracious hosts a traveller could ask for, and they made us feel right at home from the start.

We stayed in La Bifora suite, and it was absolutely gorgeous! The history within the walls as well as the view from the balcony was just amazing. We especially enjoyed drinking wine on our private balcony while watching the extraordinary Tuscan sunset.

Overall, our stay at the Camino was more than we could've imagined. We are already trying to plan our next visit, and would highly recommend this beautiful establishment to anyone, especially honeymooners. =-)

P.S. Make sure you try some of Emy's olive oil. If you have time, try a wine tasting at Moris Farms. You will be sorry if you don't! (We came home with nine bottles of wine and a case of olive oil and are about to make our next order for some more.)

Thanks Dani and Emy for our wonderful honeymoon. We will never forget it.

Room Tip: La Bifora suite has an amazing view and a wonderful terrace. It's the perfect place to stay if y...

Great place in the Tuscan hill side where wine and olives are as common as snow in Canada. A great location for day trips to the ocean, wineries or plenty of historic hills towns in the surrounding area. If you just want to relax at the resort thats an option to with a nice walks through there private wineyards, forests, olivegroves, swim in the pool or even get a lesson on their home made olive oil from the owner himself.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed. Our apartment was delightful and filled with lovely antique furniture and fittings. Whilst swmming in the lovely, clean pool we could gaze across the olive groves at fortified hilltop villages. The calm atmosphere and beautiful surroundings gave us one of our happiest ever holidays, we will certainly go again.

We were lucky enough to stay at Caminino for 10 days in June 2011 and we had one of the best holidays ever. If I could mark it 11 out of 10 I would. Everything was perfect - the accommodation, the hospitality, the ambiance, the scenery, the setting - it could not have been more beautiful. I would go back again tomorrow if I could...simply wonderful.
