It's a really special place in the middle of Toscana, near Siena and San Gimigano. It has many vineyards nearby. Very cosy, has a beautiful fire place and inside rooms for reading and relax. The people are the best. Very concerned all the time from manager to waiters. I would highly recommend it.

We had a standard room which was all we needed. It was comfortable and cozy. We opened the windows at night to let in the cool air and awoke to the birds (which apparently are quite talkative creatures here). The property is well maintained and the staff is very helpful and friendly. It is certainly a place that I would...

The location was amazing, very close to a little village and had amazing views. But the hospitality left something to be desired. No a/c control, no working fridge, and strange rules. Found workers to be less than friendly.

First of all I'd like to say the hotel staff is very friendly, which is very important! As well as the lovely waitresses at the restaurant, Jani and Maria you guys are great! You made the difference! I have though a few critics to the hotel. There is no place to sit outside and have a snack or tea. There...

Buonasera Luciana Thank you for your thoughts and thank you very much for your compliments to our staff. We too though, would like to share our thoughts with you. Regarding outside sitting area at our hotel the situation is not quite the way you put it. As a matter of fact there is plenty of out door space where we...

Excellent location in the Chianti hills, mid-way between Firenze and Siena (45 minutes from both). Staying for a week to cycle the area, Ricavo is on the individual time trial stage for the 2016 Giro -- which attests to the excellent, varied, and generally low traffic routes available. Tucked in the woods, 1.2 Km. off the road, it feels like...

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Tenuta di Ricavo across all aspects of our stay. It started with a totally warm, friendly and helpful reception, continued with a very comfortable room, excellent maid service and excellent assistance in suggesting places to visit as well as scheduling many of those visits. In addition, the restaurant at Tenuta di...

I was very torn with my review and in the end decided to give it 4 stars. The placement of the hotel is magical. Could not be better in fact. Situated on an old farm that has a very rustic feel to it. But beautiful, so beautiful I could not stop marveling. Everything was quite lovely and green outside. Trees...

We were so besotted by this delightful hotel last year that we made a return visit. Sometimes that can be a mistake, but not on this occasion! We were given a different "Superior" room from that on our first visit, the view is almost the same, lovely furnished terrace, tranquil and calm (yes the dogs next door bark when someone...

I have only wonderful things to say about this hotel. It's a gorgeous little place tucked away in the countryside near Castellina in Chianti. The owner was very friendly. She took the time to talk to us and help us find wineries and restaurants to suit our tastes during our stay and was very helpful in making the arrangements for...
