We stayed here for 4 nights in one of the villa suites. The location, grounds, and facilities are very beautiful. The villa is surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards.

Our room was large, with a seperate sitting area and a tiny kitchen, but the furnishings were a little old and not of the highest quality. Even so, the room gave the feel of a small, quaint family-run facility and we liked it.

The only real downside was that the service wasn't up to our expectations. As mentioned, the facility has the feel of a family-run B&B, but the staff does not. They are not mean or rude, just somewhat indifferent. Everytime we needed to ask a question, we felt like we were bothering them.

In all, it is a very nice but it doesn't provide the welcoming service that we often received at other small inns in Europe.

Stayed: May 2007

We are from the Hill Country of Texas and spent five days at Dievole (May 2006) and we got the true tuscany wine and food experience. The food and service were great. Loved setting on the lawn next to the vineyard having lunch for two hours; life doesn't get any better. Dievole is the perfect spot to stay; the rooms were excellent and the winery is super. Their wines are outstanding and you can buy them in the U.S. Mario was the wine host and provided the best experience. Angelo and his wife made our stay first rate; as did the entire staff. The Villa is a very romantic and provides some of the most beautiful views in tuscany. As others have said, "it's off the beaten track," thats OK, but not that far and close to Siena and a central location to other towns. You must visit Radda to the north and assorted wineries, just ask Mario.I can't say enough about our experience; can't wait to get back. Beautiful, beautiful!!!!!!!
Make sure you visit the tiny village of Vagliagli near Dievole. You must have dinner at LaTaverna di di Vagliagli, again this is a wonderful place, the foods supppper with great friendly people.
Make sure you call them for when they are open.

Hi. I and my fiance went to the place for 5 days. The place itself is very beautiful with lovely views. Unfortunatelly it was raining every day so we could not enjoy our time fully. My tips for you would be:

+ stay in the Villa Dievole in room 123 (it is the biggest one on the floor and the lightest one),
+ go for wine testing - this is very good experience (they made a good stroy out of that),
+ the staff was helpful (apart from the cleaing ladies, who did not allow us to move to another room as they finished their work and did not want to stay a little bit longer),

- the restaurant is not as good as I would expect (the service was good, but the food moderate compering to the other places),

In total certainly a very good overall exeprience.

We arrived at 6PM. We were rudely told there was a private party at the Villa and we'd have to find a meal elsewhere. They told us to hurry to town. Upon returning to Dievole, we found no one available to show us to our rooms. Finally, the manager arrived and told us to follow him up a long flight of stairs in the front of the Villa (while we carried our own bags and assist a 70 year old woman). The manager was rude and indignant. Upon waking in the morning to a beautiful view and setting, we found out that we could have driven very easily up to our room on a drive at the abck of the Villa. The setting is lovely, but the staff is rude and inconsiderate.

My daughter and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Villa Dievole. The Villa is beautiful. The scenery is wonderful and the Villa is everything I had dreamed about for a Villa in Tuscany. The rooms are very clean and spacious , tastefully decorated with a modern bathroom. It was lovely to open our window each morning and look out onto the beautiful countryside. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. We arrived at the beginning of the season so it was very quiet. Even so the staff were busy ensuring everything was perfect for the guests . The wine tour with a visit to the cellar and history of the estate was really good and there is wine and olive oil to purchase if you wish. ( The olive oil is delicious!!). The restaurant was fantastic with a daily menu based on fresh ingredients. Breakfast was an assortment of cold meats, eggs , fruit , pastries etc all beautifully fresh.I would rate this as a 5 star property.
