Loved Dievole. My husband and I stayed a week. We opted to have some of their wines sent back to us in the U.S. Over a month later, we received our shipment. One of the bottle had a leak. We tried again and again to contact Dievole. No answer. Finally, we had success. We were told we would have to pay an extra charge to reship a new bottle. I was disappointed especially after spending so much money for our weeks stay at Villa Dievole. Dievole never followed through to fix the issue. We enjoyed our stay, but I would tell anyone to be careful on wine shipment orders. You may not get what you paid for.

Stayed at the Dievole for 3 nights of our one week honeymoon vacation in Tuscany. We are wine lovers and wanted the working vinyard experience. The hotel delivers if you are looking for relaxation and tuscan beauty. The surroundings and peaceful atmosphere will amaze you. Woke up to hear the tractor working out in the fileds and had a wonderful view of vineyards through our shutters. Bottle of wine, welcome note and fresh fruit was waiting in our room upon arrival. The dinner restaurant was very good, the breakfast quite substantial by Italy standards, rooms and common areas very clean and the wine tasting tour was really fun. There is a nice wine bar and outdoor patio to enjoy during the day, a darling chapel and beautiful landscaped grounds. For all these reasons it is a gem. There are some negatives that should be shared. We chose this place enticed by both offers of wine cellar dinner and bbq experience, but the hotel did not provide either one. The weather was a bit cold, but not miserable (no rain or wind). The staff dismissed both events as being unavailable due to conditions. It made us wonder if the events ever happen at all, as the office closes early each day with no staff around in the evening. We had a standard room and wanted an upgrade but we were told that the villa was completely booked. We saw very few people or cars at all during our stay. The dining room was only half full and there was only a few people having breakfast each morning. We wondered if events and rooms are only booked when staff is available and maybe they want to keep payroll down? The pool is clean and beautiful but not heated. Our room was on the third floor of the main villa which required climbing two full flights of stairs and no lift.. There is no staff to assist with luggage or even a cart to help out. It was a chore to man handle bags, as well as climb up to our room multiple times a day. The maid crew only comes around once, quite early in the morning. If you miss the knock or not yet up and out then you will miss room clean up for the day. The villa is very isolated so beware that it is not convenient for daytime excursions or to grab other meals close by. Radda is 20 minutes north on a dirt road, Castelina 25 minutes west on another dirt road. Sienna can be reached in about 30 minutes on a narrow paved road going south. If you want a dinner with wine at another restaurant then the return ride at night can be a challenge. There is only one other dining option, a very good Trattoria in the local Village called Vagliagli (which has nothing but a restuarant, bar and church) no other goods or services except for this great Trattoria. They prepare delicious steak in a wood fire oven. Ravioli was excellent and one of our best meals in Italy. Although we loved the villa experience we would probably have done better in a hilltop town with other options close by. The Dievole is a beautiful place but it is our opinion that they are more focused on the wine production and less focused on the hotel aspect. It is not the type of place for those looking for resort type accommodations, but rather a good taste of wine country life for those seeking simplicity and beauty without perks or social events.

My Wife and I stayed 2 nights in a Villa in April 08. Firstly the room was beautiful with an amazing view. It had to bedrooms and a pullout sofa in the dining area. The whole place had been finished well and the bathrooms were amazing.
It is a fair bit out from Siena but is an excellent base to tour around. It can be quiet at night as it pretty much shuts down after dinner. We had dinner in the restaraunt 1 night and found it very tasty, if a little overpriced. The staff were extremely friendly and open to question and the wine tour was great fun to go on. If you do not need to be in the centre of everything this is the place to stay.

We stayed at Villa Dievole in the summer of 2007 ( 2nd week of August ). This was a special occasion, as 8 of us which including my father-law went ( whose 60th birthday we were celebrating ).

Location: We stayed previously in Casa Del Aiole which is also near the town of Vagliagli. Vagliagli is only 15 minutes drives north of Siena on a mildly-windy road ( but with beautiful landscapes including the vineyards). Villa Dievole is located just off the outskirts of Vagliagli's town centre. The villa is located on a vineyard with beautiful views of the Tuscan landscape.

Rooms: We had a villa which has two bedrooms, and bathrooms (one ensuite). Our room had two single beds, and the other had a double. Each room had a reverse cycle air conditioner which we used ( very powerful and quiet ) and also heating available. The quality of linen was fantastic, and the mattress were a bit soft. Each room had cupboard space for shoes/clothing. The rooms were cleaned. This is one of the cleanest hotels/villas I've stayed in.
The bathroom had ample amount of towels, the finishing all marble, toilet and bidet very clean, and shampoo/soap provided. All excellent quality. The shower was large, lots of water pressure, hot water ran out quickly when 4 of us took showers within 1 hr.
Family/Living room: very large, had a table with 6 chairs, kitchen, fridge, glasses, wine glasses, complimentary bottle of chianti, complimentary fruit on arrival, small satellite TV, stereo, air conditioner too - excellent.
Outside Patio - our villa didnt have one, but the my father-in law's had one - outside table and chairs, lounge chairs and rack to hang up clothing to dry. Fantastic to have a glass of wine or stay outdoors with the kids.

Reception/Facilities - the reception was quite helpful/professional. We had decided which restaurants to go to prior, and they booked them all for us. There is a wine bar, the girl there was abrupt and grumpy - appeared she did not want to be there - adjoining the wine bar is a nice larger outdoor patio for sipping wine/reading books. Internet is available on 1 computer - 15 mins for 3 euros. There is a wine shop.
Pool: two pools - large, not heated through. Very clean. Lots of pool chairs, very private.
Restaurant - we had dinner their on the first night. In summer, they have the tables outside on the lawn, which looks over all the vineyards - magical experience. Restaurant is run by the family. Choose from a daily menu of 2-3 entrees, 2 mains, 2 deserts/cakes. Not much variety, but to be expected from a family run kitchen, and the food was good quality and fresh and cooked well.
Breakfast: breakfast included in the price. buffet and a fantastic selection of meats/prosciuto, cheese, mozarella and tomatoes, scambled eggs, cakes, lots of diff teas, coffee made to your requests, fresh pastries and fresh bread. This is the best buffet I've had ( as much variety as the Thon Hotel in Bergen, Norway)

Price: We paid $299 euro for 4 people (inclusive breakfast) for the Villa. It is more than we usually pay. But the money was well worth it. The whole experience was wonderful, the lodging was top-class and would higly recommend it for families or for a romantic getaway in Tuscany.

This was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Tuscany. It is close to Siena but much more relaxing. It is very quiet at this vineyard and they have two pools for you to relax. The free wine tour was fun although I was hoping for more information on how the wine is actually produced. We ate the Wine Dinner in the 1000 year old wine cellar--the food was good but it was the experience that made it worth it! We ate lunch and dinner there the next day as well and they were both very good! For dinner, they set the tables up outside overlooking the vineyard with candles and it is just amazing! The pesto gnocci was the best I have ever had.

The hotel room was much nicer then I expected. There is no tv which we were not used to but you can get games from the front desk. The room was nicely sized, clean and they even give you a free bottle of wine upon arrival. The Chianti Classico was delicious and I have heard there are lots of other vineyards nearby to explore. We only stayed for two nights but I think you could enjoy staying there for many more. We found it a perfect end to a tour around Italy. The only thing that was a slight drawback was no AC but they do provide a fan and it does cool off a bit at night.
