Castello Vicchiomaggio
Ranked #3 of 19 Hotels in Greve in Chianti
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2015

The hotel itself is very nice. It is quiet but we was on our honeymoon.
We did stay in a normal room. So no A/C. Didn't know this at the time and if we would have known get a A/C room. Assumed all rooms would have it. It was very hot even with a fan.
But the pool and buffet breakfast are very good.
Drive to Greve for lovely food.
Taxi will be ridiculous expensive.
Cant walk due to road being dark and they realise that. Expect to get ripped off on that note.

Room Tip: Awesome views over the vineyards. And very romantic..

Stately castle - winery with gorgeous views and gardens. The red wines here are top notch an the Infiniti pool with the views of the chianti hills beyond is surreal and very welcome in the august heat.

Pro's:
restaurant is very good
nice location 30 minutes south of Florence
easy home base to drive the hill towns
friendly staff
beautiful views, impeccable gardens on the estate
very quiet

Con's:
poor a/c in bedrooms and no a/c in main living areas
unreliable / poor wifi - cannot do business here

Room Tip: the 2br suite in the castle is perfect for families

The castle and grounds are beautiful and the room we had was spectacular. The infinity pool was very unique and a great place to unwind and cool off after doing the wine tour. Dinner in the castle was very good and convenient. We only spent one night there and wish we had booked more to take advantage of all the amenities. We had a bottle of wine on the terrace overlooking the vineyards which was very romantic except for the mosquitoes.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view in La Coninica

One night visit only but could have easily stayed another. The athmosphere, pool, service, the room, breakfast, wine tour with one of the best guides ever (Inesse) - everything was great! Thanks for organizing extra tour!!!
The castle and the vineyards were so nice I woke up early to take some pictures.

The good: The castle itself is beatiful, has a great location with stunning views. It is close to Greve (10 min Greve) where there are good dining options and some world class enoteca´s. The location is also good for exploring other winery´s with just 15 min to drive to Panzano where there are a few top producers.

The bad: we stayed in the actual castle. The rooms really needs an upgrade. Furthermore there was no AC in or room, which made it hard to sleep considering that temperatures reached 37 C.

The ugly: the service and demeanour of the staff at the castle was really bad. Especially the front desk.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with AC
