Salivolpi is an old country house recently converted into a hotel whilst keeping its original architectural features. It is located on the hills on the site of the former Etruscan Castellina, near the historical centre of Castellina in Chianti
, which is a short walk away. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees, it has a wonderful panorama stretching over the Elsa valley from Monteriggioni
to San Gimignano
. The hotel is in a convenient position, about 20 minutes from Siena
, 30 from Florence
and San Gimignano, and just over an hour from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Many of our guests use Salivolpi as a base for their daily trips to the coast, and Tuscany and Umbria's historical towns and museums. Others prefer to rest in the quiet and peaceful Tuscan hills. Salivolpi offers 19 rooms whose authentic Tuscan furniture in rustic style, wrought-iron beds and wooden beams blend with the environment. All rooms have a private bathroom, minibar, satellite TV and dial-out telephone. Outside, there is a large garden, swimming pool and parking available for the guests. The large, warm lounge room and breakfast room welcome you with their arches, terracotta floors and wooden beams, reminiscent of when the hotel was a large farmhouse with its own vineyards and olive groves.
See you soon at Salivolpi.
"Salivolpi turned out to be the perfect base for our exploration of Chianti country" - Oct 22, 2010
Salivolpi offered comfortable accomodations in a great location - easy to get to, walkable to Castellina in Chainti, and within easy drive of many other inviting places to visit. The staff was very helpful with information about the area including about wineries and tours. Good restaurants were close at hand. The public areas of the hotel were confortable. (In warmer weather we would have enjoyed the garden.) The breakfast buffet had plenty of choice and was overseen by a very attentive signora. We also appreciated the hotel's efforts in energy conservation. We would definitely recommend Salivolpi to family and friends.
