  • This place was highly recommended to us and we were rather disappointed. Eight of us came for lunch which was served on the terrace...a lovely spot. The service was not good and the food was average. ...  more »
  • It was a cold, clear day in early January, so very little was open. But the view was stupendous! We hope to return next time when we can visit the winery.

  • It was wonderful to stay for four nights at Badia a Coltibuono. The place is spacious, peaceful and beautiful with large bedrooms and bathrooms all very tastefully furnished. The staff were very friendly and efficient, available to help at any time. The food was superb especially the breakfasts which were full of freshly baked cakes and breads, fresh fruit and a variety of cold meats and cheeses among other things. It is very restful at Badia as the rooms are quiet and the grounds are suitable for relaxing walks. There is an excellent restaurant on site which serves gourmet food. It was lovely to stay in such elegant surroundings which were full of interesting Tuscan antique furniture and works of art. The lounges were comfortable and inviting and enabled one to feel completely at ease.
  • My husband and I travelled here with friends of ours and had an amazing stay. The location is quiet and there is a beautiful view of the countryside. The staff was wonderful. Everyone was very hospitable and friendly. We stayed in the Granario, which was even more beautiful than the pictures. It was perfect for a group of 4, but can sleep a few more than that. The food, and the wine of course, was delicious. We had dinner at the restaurant two nights and everything we tried (with the exception of the crispy lasagna) was delicious, beautifully presented and unique. We spent an afternoon relaxing by the pool, which was kept up very well, and there is plenty of sunshine. By far our favorite day at the winery was the cooking class that we had the opportunity to experience. The class size was perfect for the kitchen environment and we made new friends. A huge thank you goes to our two cooking instructors who made us feel very much at ease in their kitchen. The food....there are no words to describe how amazing it was. We highly highly recommend this it is worth every penny!
  • Spectacular location, though it really can only be reached by car, a drive that can be frightening as it is on narrow mountain roads without guardrails and with steep drops on the sides. The ride is certainly worth it, though, because when you arrive at the old Abbey, there is an incredible serenity. The guest rooms themselves are spacious: we had a spectacular hillside view, but I imagine the courtyard views are also beautiful. The restaurant serves delicious food and is very convenient as it's just a few hundred meters from the hotel. We also took a tour of the grounds that ended with a wine tasting. It was really interesting to hear the history of this very old abbey and to see the cellars where the wine is aged. We would highly recommend this hotel, our only reservation being that once we actually made it there, we weren't particularly interested in leaving because it was a little bit of a hassle. Nonetheless, we did get out and explored the Tuscan countryside, and it was 100% worth it!
  • Beautiful property with a large and comfortable guest room and relaxing gardens. The cooking class with Benedetta was fabulous, and dinner at the restaurant was delicious. I highly recommend a visit.
  • Fun tour but they moved the vineyard further south off the property, so don't expect pictures with grape vines. A little history background might make for a more fuller experience. FYI: type the vineyard name for google maps to get you to the right location, if you use the address, you will get lost. Also go around the property towards the back beyond the church area to gain access to tour area. If it's locked just call and they will open the door.
