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.
"What a wonderful end to our trip" - Oct 2013
This was the last hotel we stayed in on our recent Tuscan holiday, and as we drove in we knew it was going
to be perfect. The renovated farmhouse is so charming and has so much character, the first thing we did was
start taking pictures. How often do you get to stay in a stone country house? Our room was on the top floor
and we loved it. Every detail is perfect, iron beds, quilts, rugs, etc. Breakfast was excellent, served in what
looks like the converted barn, well done. Didn't get to use the pool but it looked tempting had the weather
been hotter. We toured around Chianti from here and found this to be an excellent base. Everyone was
helpful and very welcoming. We would certainly come again, this is a lovely property.
