  • I've been to this Abbey with my whole family, was made a mass on the occasion of my 40th wedding anniversary. A beautiful place and great memories. Quite impressive to go back x another visit.

  • 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.
  • We loved the place, unbelievable location. Sad not to be able to say the same for the restaurant. Very average menu and wine list, missing the traditional Tuscan dishes and offering a limited selection of bottles. Got really unlucky with the service - it happens - but we had to wait 1hr for our main dishes, that admittedly got forgotten. The bill was definitely touristy, almost offensive (100€) compared to what we ate (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 glasses of chianti). Of course this was our experience and our own personal opinion, there were many happy faces around us.
  • 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!
  • Restaurant is great! Take note that you have to make a separate reservation at the restaurant, even if you're staying at the Badia/hotel. And that you can also just visit the restaurant, without staying at the hotel. Food, wine, atmosphere and service are top top notch at the restaurant! I've pretty much eaten the whole menu two years in a row. Tasting menu and T-bone steak have never let me down. I'm a big fan of Coltibuono's own wines, but if you like your wine a bit more strong and sweet order a bottle of Podere Ciona - wine maker 5 min drive away. But your will be in the Chianti region - so expect the Classico or Riserva. To stay over night - love it. Breakfast is delicious, the garden is magical and breathtaking, and the pool is calm and private. It's an old monastery, so the nights can get a bit spooky.. 😰👻😊
  • 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!
