Castellina in Chianti: Hotel Belvedere di San Leonino

Castellina in Chianti, Phone: 0577.7480887

When: April 2004

An idyllic setting in Castellina in Chianti.

Hotel Belvedere in San Leonino are lovely ancient buildings set amidst vineyards and olive groves on SS 222 just north of Siena in Chianti country. The property is tranquil and beautifully manicured and has a very comfortable, homey feel.

Our room was large, decorated with antique furniture and fresh flowers and was quite comfortable. The bathroom was large with a shower, all modern and tiled. Outside our door were tables and chairs for relaxing and ancient olive trees to complement an ancient covered well. The pool was just a short walk away and had the most fabulous views of the surrounding vineyards.

Dinner is offered to guests, and we opted for dinner our first night because we were exhausted from our day’s activities. Dinner was actually very good and the service was pleasant. Afterwards, we relaxed in the lounge area that was very comfortable and inviting. The most delightful lady with the most terrific smile served breakfast. Breakfast was a nice selection of cheeses, meats, cereals, rolls and croissants.

We enjoyed the Hotel Belvedere and would definitely recommend it for a stay in the Tuscan countryside. We just wish we had more time to relax and enjoy the amenities.
