Absolutely amazingPosted Oct 12, 2017
Cons: Nothing, it was great
We absolutely loved our stay, the wine was delicious, the grounds are spectacular, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and the facilities are amazing - particularly the spa and the breakfast buffet. We had such a relaxing time and were lucky enough to join in the end of harvest party where we participated in a grape pressing ceremony followed by an outdoor bbq and party surrounded by the vineyards. It was everything I had dreamt Tuscany would be and more. Definitely recommend Montebelli to anyone. The location is fairly rural but once you arrive, you have everything you need so don't need to leave.

great for familiesPosted Jul 21, 2017
Pros: The place is really ideal for families and we had two grandchildren with us.
Cons: The pool could be modernized . Our room didn't have air conditioning or a fan.
Location: Out of the way , down a very dusty dirt road and the only village nearby is Caldana.
The hotel is a little out of the way near the very small village of Caldana. The pool is fine, but not great. The restraint that served a buffet the first night with meats grilled on a wood fire (a nice Touch) . We actually drove a short distance to Caldana for a meal on the second night and found the little village quite lively and welcoming. When we got back the hotel had a guest violinist playing some beautiful music that helped us get a good night's sleep.

Highly recomend this hotel to anyone looking to experience a relaxed country atmosphere. Owner Alessandro was more then helpful throughout our stay. Hotel is located next to his vinyard and stables which we were free to visit. Great place for couples or familys.

Nice relaxing stayPosted Jun 10, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed three nights. Nice place in lovely setting. It is countryside away from everywhere so having a car is a must. Not many eating options nearby. We had a car so drove to Follonica (half hour). There is a restaurant on site which we didn't try.

Good hotel for familiesPosted Aug 12, 2015
Pros: Rooms and bathrooms, tennis court, a la carte food, circus entertainment on our first night
Cons: Mosquito control The road Increase number of sun loungers
Location: Good day out to Castiglione fella Pescaia Lovely meal out in Caldana at Boccacia- cheap, cheerful and very tasty
Rooms and bathrooms excellent but full of mosquitoes even though we never opened the patio door except to close the shutters- plug in mosquito killer in every room would be a good idea. Unexpected 4 euro charge for a clean bathrobe as our untidy teens had left one on the floor- this was not anywhere in the info . Parts of the road terrible- need to address this as almost bottomed the car on a couple of occasions . Not enough sun loungers at the pool. Tennis court good fun. Labyrinth advertised as being an area for peaceful contemplation but overgrown and looked uncared for. Food was very good, a la carte better value than set menus, confusion amongst the staff about whether our 13 year old should be charged adult or child price. On the first night we were told child price ( which is what we were charged) but subsequent meals we were charged adult price (30 euro rather than 10 so a big difference).

Wonderful resort and location.Posted Jun 19, 2015
If after the hassel and bussel of large cities you require a quiet place to recharge, Montebelli will fulfill this purpose. Located in a beautiful countryside, with two pools and plenty of opportunities for relaxing and hiking, but close enough to the sea and other sights, this is a perfect place to slow down and smell the linden (beautiful trees and fragrance bushes in the premises)

Pleasant for 1 night but aimed at longer staysPosted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: The friendliness of the staff, the food, the spacious, secluded grounds
Cons: Our room for two, in the original building, was a little poky.
Location: The location is secluded and peaceful, with activities on the premises. There are sights, but the Maremma's not crammed like the rest of Tuscany.
Montebelli is a sprawling complex geared for family vacations. It offers a pleasant, shaded pool, horseback riding, lots of footpaths, and its own vineyard and olive groves. The guests form a fluid community from several European nations and on the occasion of our overnight stay seemed to be enjoying one another's company. The restaurant didn't offer its normal menu on that particular evening but instead served a sumptuous outdoor grille buffet. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating.

Had been there in the past and it was a wonderfulPosted Aug 14, 2013
Pros: i had been there in the past. Lovely setting and very lovely for dinners. Close to beautiful beaches where we spent out time.
Cons: Music like rap on continuously, smoking everywhere outside, some feeling of warmth for returning visitors.
Location: Caldana is a lovely town. Grili has good restaurants and reasonably priced. Also good for the COOP grocery stores
Not a very good experience. I felt contrary a great deal of the time as it was like a kids camp. Not a good time to visit Italy when Italian families have their children More like a summer camp. did not realiize a four star would not have air conditioners in our room but they did bring an extra fan. We really felt like imposters.
