Lovely hotel in stunning (but remote) location
Posted Sep 29, 2015
The hotel is charming, set in lovely grounds well off the road. Very quiet and picturesque. Adjoining it is a separate restaurant which serves fabulous food in very good portions; not cheap but not overly expensive for the region. You need to pay them separately.
Free parking and wifi. Nice pool.
With tiled floors, noise from other rooms, particular above, could at times be a little bit of a nuisance.
It's a little hard to find, not being in Castellina in Chiant itself, but about 8km outside the town heading for Siena.
Great base for exploring Siena or the hill towns round there.
Staff were very helpful & friendly (albeit one seemed surprised at everything we asked for before helping sort something out).
Main negative was breakfast (served in the hotel itself). Plenty of variety but not fresh produce (like juice or nice bread) and generally the quality not great.
Their own wines and olive oil a must to try.
