As there was nothing there, we only went for walk & rested. The villa was to out of the way, the food was below standard & so was the room. Not a 1 star let alone a 4 star.
Location wonderful, buildings inspiring, owner very kind and helpful Breakfast uninteresting - it would be easy to improve. Breakfast room dark with curtains. Atmosphere among waiters far too formal. Rates for regular rooms excessive (we stayed in reasonably priced annex)
the location' the friendly owner' the fppd
big room; very quiet; reserve covers in the cabinet (and believe me we needed them) were stinky (naphtaline) smell was so strong that we had a hard time to sleep... the hotel team provided fresh covers for the following night
Helpful and friendly staff. Prompt service. Clean, comfortable room. Pet-friendly. Good location for our needs.
Beautiful grounds. Friendly staff and wait staff. Great breakfast. Close to the town. Old environment with the comforts of today.
lovely location Accomodation poor- damp room and damp bed. Restaurant was closed for evening dining. Breakfast poor. Service poor, no staff available overnight to help sort out problem with dampness.
A lovely well serviced hotel with complete old fashioned charm
Very nice location and drive to the hotel. Easy to find and easy parking. Very authentic and "Tuscany-like". Quite simple, but good hotel with a nice owner.
I lliked the location, very romantic, beautiful place, and would go back there again, place to go if you want to chill out!
The family was very friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better. Also, it was very quiet. Great Breakfast and a gorgeous pool!!!!!!
A comfortable and quiet hotel in a cosy square in a nice town in a beautiful area in Chianti.
The area out back with the terrace and pool was absolutely lovely! The hotel keeper was a real help, too. I liked being able to get a nice glass of wine right in the lobby of the hotel...very nice. I loved the AC. It worked wonderfully! I did not like that so many people were smoking in the lobby in front of the television, so I didn't really want to spend any time in there. Parking was also a bit of a hassle since cars aren't allowed to park near the hotel until after 10pm. We had to go and get our car before we went to bed.
The hotel is in the center of the town and has a lovely inside garden.
friendly atmosphere no
Room was okay, and fairly quiet. Nice pool area outside, but it was cool and we didn't use it. It was hard to get to, as the piazza it was on was closed to traffic for a market day. Parking was difficult, and not very close. The piazza was pleasant in the evening, however, with some good restaurants.
Breakfast buffet was very good as there were variety of foods i.e. ham, cheese, fruits, different kinds of breads, etc.
Very friendly warm staff the room had everything we needed Loved the pool and the community aspect of the hotel, late at night there is always people hanging around and having a good time and having good conversation. I would recommend this place to anyone Thankyou Marco, Francesco and David
In addition to the price, location, and hotel staff being superb, the breakfast was excellent. Although the walk wasn't far, there was zero parking.
Easy access to rest of town. Swimming pool. Attentive staff.
Italy's best breakfast, nice staff, great garden. This can be recommended strongly
frienddly,clean, good price,
Excellent countryside location, yet accessible to enchanting Tuscan city nothing
the staff were very frindly and the room simple but clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. the room was noisy from other room activity above and to the side
comfortable rooms, nice facilities, nice surroundings, quietness, friendly staff
Nice, friendly and cosy hotel in a small tuscanese town. Several good restaurants within walking distance and more reachable with a car, which is recommendable otherwise also. Parking available. Silent surroundings, churchbells distant, not disturbing. Good european meal, inexpensive. Very good hotel, can be recommended without hesitation. Nothing to complain about.
The setting is beautiful and the hotel has a lovely tuscan country feel about it. The pool and gardens were nice and the breakfast good. Some of the rooms are close to the road but there is not much traffic until morning.
Everything was fantastic, the hotel staff are very nice and the lovely lady that prepare brakefast is very sweet. Also tge location is ideal to drive around.
nice staff, great location,good breakfeast [but i miss the procuetto secco we use to get] have stayed here a number of times. will be back next year i presume. i wish they would install air conditioning in the rooms along the main road to florence so you could close the windows at night. because it gets very noisey at night with the traffic, barking dogs and crowing roosters.
Enchanting, rustic, excellent cuisine, breath-taking location
Superb location - midway between Florence and Sienna in beautiful quiet setting Going home!
scenery, food walking trails pools quiet authentic buildings & decor it was wonderful
The quietness of the estate, the swimming pool surrounded by the nature, the private terrace in our room Cheap furniture in our small room, staff not so friendly, quality of service average, not well kept (road to access the hotel, walk path around the hotel for instance), not fulfilling the expectations of a 4 stars hotel.
The location of the hotel was excellent. In a walking area, in Chianty wine district and near a lot of historical places like Sienna (in hot summers, you can probably escape to this place). The hotel service is kind and helpfull. Our stay was partly in low season and partly high season. In high season the price was higher and the service went down as if they did not expect more people. In the restaurant (of the hotel) this was annoying. We would recommend to stay in the restaurant once or twice during your stay. It was ok, but in a distance of a few km there are a lot of other nice restaurants.
Unrivalled peace and tranquility in a unique setting which was the perfect base for sightseeing in central Tuscany.
The place in the center of Toskana, The beautiful hotel, The view from the hotel and the nice resterant Nothing
helpful staff good breakfast not enough sun loungers around the pool no suitable eating options for children no room service
its a great hotel in a perfect location, with great service, the staff is very friendly and very helfull.
Very friendly hotel staff, good food, good service, very nice environment and view. Centrally located near all the tourist attractions in Tuscane.
We made the reservation as we had been invited for a lunch by friends in Tavarnelle. The hotel was a very nice surprise; very comfortable room.
location (5km to highway firenze -siena); quality rooms; breakfast staff. noise of rooms (especially the ones above the kitchen); allthough landscape-view from the swimmingpool is beautiful, the view of the rooms and restaurant is limited
Very good location if your want to visit the Chianty Valley a the near by towns (Siena, San Gimignano, even Pisa). Very good restaurant with good service and friendly staff.. Some of the activities advertise by the Hotel (horse ridding, hot air ballon trips, etc.) are not provided by the Hotel itself, they are near by activities, and in some cases the staff at the reception did not have the information about them or about happenings in the area.
Good location, big rooms. Stupid rules about charging costs if some food eated in the room or if some own beverages were put in the minibar!
Beautiful hotel. Nice views, location. Good price at €100. for a dble. Although beautifully presented, breakfast was skimpy. I love coffee, and this was the worst I've tasted (outside of Austria). Very much a hotel, and not a charming country house as I had thought.
We really enjoyed our stay here and I would not hesitate to recommend it. The hotel is well located in the heart of Chianti, within easy reach of Florence and Siena. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room had been recently decorated and was spotlessly clean. The incuded continental breakfast was really good and although the hotel does not have its own restaurant, there is a great pizzaria/restaurant just next door. The hotel is quite close to the superstrada, which makes it easy to reach anywhere, but the downside is there is some traffic noise.
One of the best hotels we have visited on our 14 day trip through Italy. Staff is very friendly throughout the entire hotel. They clearly like their job! Easy to find although my car navigation equipment was not very helpful initially. The (independent) trattoria next to the hotel is slow in serving food. Better take another restaurant in San Donato for example.
Modern, clean, lovely grounds in countryside setting. Excellent access to Chianti region as well as Siena and Florence. Close to several good restaurants. Accommodating staff. nice swimming pool and sit out area . You need to have a car as outside the town of Tavarnelle and too far to walk.The staff was excellent in terms of offering advice on local information. The room was very nice and clean. The hotel staff was kind and helpfull. The breakfast service which was included was really good. There was a fair amount of traffic noise which was audible in the garden/pool area but was not a problem in the bedroom.
the room was very clean and the staff very helpful. In a good position in the tuscan countryside.
Excellent service, clean room, good breakfast
Very good location, very good breakfast restaurant would be a big plus
It was a lovely place but not very close to the main wine region - a good 15 minute drive away. The staff, especially the manager were not very helpful as we wanted to arrange some activities. Also not much to eat in the area - you really need a car to stay here! The manager was rude and unhelpful, patronising and one of the only staff to speak proper english.
The reception staff were excellent, very professional, helpful & had all spoke very good English. They provided very useful information & maps for visiting Florence and Chianti region. The whole hotel was smart & clean. It was very well located for visiting Florence, Siena & the Chianti region. We had our own car, but for those that don't, there are buses to Florence that leave from very close by. There is a free to use, secure, fenced off car park next to the hotel. Although located right next to the Superstrada (duel carriage way) you wouldn't know being inside the hotel. Very good soundproofing. Breakfast buffet excellent. The Wifi in our room was a bit hit & miss. Worked OK though after we asked the receptionist to re-set the modem. There was no option to keep our towels for the stay. They were changed every day, which is a tad wasteful. Most hotels these days change only the ones that are left on the floor.
the staff were very helpfull and fun the hotel had a quiet relaxed atmosphere, the pool was beautiful and the view from our room was incredible, we loved our short stay and want to come again soon. our room smelled of stale cigarette smoke, and the beds were not too comfy, but these are small problems that did not spoil our enjoyment at all.
Good service and friendly English-speaking staff. Bathroom equipment is in a good shape.
I loved the view from our room and from the grounds. I loved the charm of the place itself. The woman managing on her own while the owners were away was exceptional in friendliness and cuisine and helpfullness. No
It is a great place to stay in Tuscany. We had a nice spacious room with a splendid view (changed from a standard to a superior to have the view). It is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. Laura (the owner)) is there all the time and very kind and helpful. It is possible to have your dinner there, not a huge menu, but nice and simple food, prepared by the owner herself. For sure we will return when possible. We would have liked aircondition or just a fan in the room (maybe upon request it is possible to ask for a fan up front) Be aware that the owner does not accept kreditcards - only cash.
Well situated, calm place, nice view on the valley. Classical "we cannot accept credit card, there is a problem in the machine, please pay cash!" problem..
Peaceful restful good location good centre for visiting Florence and Siena and all of Chianti lovely scenic situation no
The lady in charge, kind and helpful
This is a very nice country mansion with a perfectly maintained territory with an olive garden, a pool, sitting areas. It has a wonderful view over Chianti vineyards and Castellina in Chianti. The personnel is very welcoming and makes you feel like at your friends' house Signage on the main road needs improvement: it says "Palazzolo" + the hotel sign, instread of "Podere Palazzolo"
Staff very friendly initially, making you feel very welcome. Floors coldish & no in-room ironing facilities.
The hospitality was wonderful. Staff were excellent, particularly erica in sorting out stuff for us. The place itself is gorgeous and in a lovely part of the world. Thankyou.
Just Excellent !
This place is magnificent. We stayed in Villa Castrum. The design and quality of interior of our apartment and common areas in the villa is exceptional. The views and the surrounding area are very beautiful. Great value for money and absolutely beautiful experience. In Marco Polo apartment we were delighted to see a dryer machine, but it was not functioning properly.
It’s quite difficult to say what we like best since everything was just perfect: the hospitality of our hosts and the friendly staff that made us feel at home, the wonderful, charming property exceptionally restored with beautiful gardens and pool, combined with the perfect location in the heart of the Chianti region. We can hardly wait to return. Many thanks to our hosts Lucia and Stefano! -
The gorgeous location in rolling hills of Tuscany as well as the beautiful historical and intimate buildings of La Canonica with their comfortable, relaxing outside garden & pool facilities. Serenity reigns in this private, tucked-away spot. All its facilities, esp. the breakfast room, are more beautiful than pictured online. It would be nice to have the breakfast room opened/served before 8am for those needing to get an early start.
The general setup, the living room, the swimming pool and lawn, the dining room The bathtub was not comfortable , the water pressure was too low, the room was too dark
Very nice place, with good breakfast. additional charges during the breakfast
Beautiful place and lanscape
We stayed in Primavera Apartment, Bedrooms were spacious and pleasant decor. Nice Location The bath was dated and tiny with a low pressure shower above. Storage for toiletries was inside the shower area and therefore got wet. Not a suitable layout or pleasant experience.
The calmness and the beautiful views and gardens surrounding the hotel
Peaceful, historic, traditional, authentic, non-commercial, beautiful countryside, beautiful gardens & setting, beautiful swimming pool, nearby historic attractions (large and small), wonderful staff. Top quality food served in homely style.
Villa Le Barone is situated in beautiful Tuscany. The landscape is just as I imagined it would be. Lovely gardens and rolling hills. The staff was very attentive and the food delicious. If you are looking for a very quiet get away with plenty of relaxation this is the place to go. The common areas are charming with plenty of antiques and interesting things to look at. I felt like I'd traveled back in time. At times, I felt it was a little too quiet. The dining areas felt like you couldn't talk above a whisper so not to disturb the other quests.
Beautiful setting with relaxed atmosphere coupled to excellent service Only very small things that were brought to their attention
Breakfast was great. The Croissant, the best ever. Nice Location. Very good hotel.
The very friendly and helpful staff. The room furnishings, the architecture of the building, the breakfast and the location in Chianti. Nothing.
This was one of my favorite hotels during my 2 week stay in Italy. Loved the villa, its interior, location, views, staff was excellent and helpful and the food was very good as well. The breakfast buffet was good and plentiful. Would highly recomend it to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in Chianti. There was nothing I did not like about it.
location wonderful views peace and quiet cold in the public areas and bedrooms . Owner was not contactable as did not live on site. Good place in summer as heating not required.
We had a wonderful stay! The accomodations and surrounding countryside were gorgeous. The staff was delightful and provided wonderful recommendations for meals, wine tasting, and site to visit.
Location. the young kitchen staff who was the only person we had any contact with during our stay there. Lack of welcome. Very disappointed with our stay, Many times i have stayed with the Relais chain through Europe and was always impressed with the service, staff and accomadation. On arrival we where not shown to our room, no information regarding breakfast or facillities. We where just handed the key and that was it. we never saw any one after that but the kitchen staff. we would get our key of the board ourselves when we came in at night. this made me very uncomfortable as any one had acess to the keys-no security. There was no safe and no mini bar where you could have acess to water. Really not to the Rellais standard of care and commitment.
The staff work hard to make sure everything is right for your comfort and convenience. The breakfast was served up with many choices including fresh buns, fruit and meats and cheese. This was accompanied with great capacinnos. Location is great for hiking in the hills of Chianti, grocery shopping for provisioning and for enjoying a great meal at a great price at two restaurant - trattorias across the road. Free parking available close by. Loved the place!
Bedroom and shower room both large, airy and scrupulously clean. Balcony/Patio area an unexpected bonus. The owners were welcoming,friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and food fresh. There were no problems with the parking. Greve is an excellent base for exploring this beautiful region and with many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance and with excellent bus links one can forget the car for a week. We will return.
Clean and comfortable hotel. Good location.
The hotel was located near the center of Grevi in Chianti so it was quite convenient. The room was big enough and clean. I didn't have any problem. Personally, the decoration of the room looked a bit cheap, but considering the price and the length of my stay, it didn't bother me much.
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. Room is very clean and very quiet. Breakfast ample and good. Overall, this is a very good hotel, you will get what you pay for and more. I have no complaint about this hotel, only the man- in-charge looks a bit 'cool', he should 'smile' more.
