At the point in our trip we arrived at Belmonte, we had already stayed at several hotels, and rented a flat in Rome. Enjoying them all, I wanted something different for my 5-year old son and I when in Tuscany. To relax, and be immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, and find a wealth of families with kids so my son could engage in a similar age group.
Belmonte was a vacation within our overall 6 week vacation in Italy. The location is more beautiful than the pictures I've seen, and the rented house we stayed at and subsequent families we shared time with while there, were all gorgeous.
There is horseback riding very close, the pool is perhaps the most used section of the entire resort, and the daily morning bread order that gets delivered to your flat, awesome. As you would expect in the middle of nowhere, rent a car. And it is close to San Gimignano with its world famous gelato (wow), and about an hour / 90 minute drive to other Tuscan highlights such as Siena, Lucca, Firenze, and the sea.
The staff, was always extremely helpful and welcoming, and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was awesome.
When we find ourselves back in Italy, we will surely re-visit Belmonte.
