This hotel is a converted monastery, I believe. It still has the chapel as one of the buildings on the property. It has been tastefully restored into a hotel by the owners.
We found the staff helpful in directing us to wineries in the area. the hotel also sports a very nice re

We stayed for 5 nights at Tenuta di Ricavo; a medieval village and a hidden gem away from the main street in the middle of nature but still centrally located in Castellina il Chianti to explore Toscana.
Christina’s and Alessandro’s team were very attentive. We also had very good

We’ve been coming here since 1996 and we remain addicted. If you’re looking for a secluded retreat in Chianti area in Tuscany with a good kitchen there is no better place than Tenuta di Ricavo. The hotel is tucked away amidst typical Tuscan forest and the buildings form a hamlet

We will not have a car. Is there public transportation. We are day hikers.
Dear Linda, thanks for your message. The Hotel is in the countryside, 5 km away from the nearest village of Castellina in Chianti. From the main road to the Tenuta, there is 1.2 km of unpaved road, so called "strada bianca". Personally, we don't recommend to walk from the main road to the village because cars goes fast on that part despite the road is narrow and curvy. So, if you want to explore the area, we recommend to rent a car or if you want to explore the area around walking in the wood, to rent a private driver to get here. In case, we can help with this. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Best regards - reception

Hi, Is it necessary to have a car? Is public transportation readily available?
Buonasera, Thank you for contacting us. As to your question. Please consider that our hotel is 4kms out of town, beautifully situated in the idyllic country sides. Unfortunately however there is no shuttle service or public transport to and from the hotel. Therefore, yes, it is very recommendable to arrive by car and have a car available during your stay. A car gives you the independence to go also to places, which are not easy to reach or have limited access and to arrive and depart whenever you please. A car versus a motorbike is safer on our windy Chianti roads plus it keeps you dry should it rain! Hope to have been able to answer your question. Kind regards Christina Lobrano-Scotoni

Do you have air conditioning?
Dear Jennifer Buongiorno from Tenuta di Ricavo! Yes we do have airconditioning in all bedrooms and all public indoor areas. Though, as stated by above by Ian Travel, we are located in the hills and so the acutual hot months are usually July and August. If you travel in April, May and October you will more likely need central heating, which we supply as well. Please do not hesitate to get back to us with any further questions, we look foreward to hearing from you. Kind regards from lovely Tuscany Christina Lobrano-Scotoni

Hello. Do the rooms have hairdryers, tea-making facilities and toiletries please?
It did not have hair dryers or irons. They could lend one upon request. They did provide toiletries. And could do your laundry if you needed them to for an additional charge.

availability of 2 beds in a room
Yes it is possible to have two beds separate in one room but it is very important to request this in advance to ensure you are set up and will enjoy greatly as Tenuta di Ricavo always is upgrading and aims to ensure customers are extremely pleased. There are also two bedrooms with a hall and shared bathroom which is also very nice but whatever you desired be sure to communicate.
