We stayed in Le Vecchie Cantine for 2 days, it was great! Very good value for the price. The room was spacious, clean, with a beautiful view, updated bathroom. The breakfast was outstanding, freshly prepared every morning. Staff very helpful and friendly. Can highly recommend and will definitely stay there again.

Staff at Le Vecchie Cantine were all so sweet and helpful whenever we needed assistance. Restaurant's service and food was brill whenever we dined there (both breakfast and dinner). Rooms were clean. True value for money. However I think a car is a must, since this accomodation is in a remote but beautiful location.

Very beautiful and in a great location on a top of a little mountain in the heart of tuscany. Very romantic and we loved every minute.
For our opinion this is a great location but be advised that Chianni is 20 minutes driving from the main road.
The bathtub is not comfterball and the restaurant is just ok

Room Tip: view for the valley

My wife and I had always dreamed of visiting Tuscany. Now we have and it was a trip of which dreams are made. Le Vecchie Cantine is in the heart of Tuscany and the inn and restaurant were picturesque and pure Tuscan. Nothing fake about it. The staff are all family or local. Chianni is a very small hill town with magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside. The food was wonderful with lots of homemade pastas, fresh mozzerela, procuitto, and fresh fruits as we stayed in July during season, figs, peaches and grapes.
Would liked to have had a wee bit better air conditioner, the one we had could barely keep up with the hot summer heat, but it was sure better than no a/c which is what most of the hilltop inns have. Make reservations for dinner each evening because outside dining is the best and those tables go first.
We came to Tuscany in part to attend Andrea Bocceli's concert in Lajatico, his home town. He performs there once a year in his outdoor theater, Teatro del Silencio. Magnificent and thrill of a lifetime.
This outstanding family run inn out in the country is not for those wanting luxury or pampering. It is for those wanting to experience the true Tuscan culture and way of life. Everyone we came in contact with was very friendly. The language barrier never seemed to be that much of a problem. (we only knew about 100 words of Italian, the best one of which is "graci" (thank you).
Amazing.

Room Tip: try to get a room overlooking the courtyard.

We stayed at this lovely place for 8 night in a row. The room had a nice interior and was always well maintained. Chianni is a nice small village far from the ocean and big cities, but it servers well as a base for different day trips. A big plus for the service minded staff and their friendliness. We could definitely recommend this place to couples / families wanting to experience Tuscany. The restaurant in the same building has great food, and the breakfast is really relly great - not the biggest selection, but very good quality on the things they have.

Room Tip: The 2 bed room apartment is a very good choice for families - quiet and large

We had a vacation like in the movies. Great location in Tuscany, excellent food, excellent service, huge room and bathroom, very friendly staff. Really nothing more to wish about. Stayed for seven days and enjoyed every single one. Will be coming back again at first chance.

I've chosen this hotel after reading a lot of positive comments on Tripsadvisor. And it was a really good decision.
The hotel is more than nice and very clean and comfortable, the staff very polite and helpful.
From the recepcion to the restaurant and breakfast service-everything was perfect.
We ate almost every evening at the hotel restaurant, it was always fully booked, so if you want to eat there-make a reservation!!!The prices are OK (not too expensive) , because the level of the cuisine is very high. Everything perfectly cooked and served. The local wine was also excellent.
Our children found it great to be in this wonderful house, thanks to the billiard table and nice breakfast lady:)She was very friendly and laughed always to our little boy.

The neighborhood has a lot to offer: the public swimming-pool ist only few minutes away (with a very romantic landscape), is clean and perfect for both: adults and children.
You can go to the sea-side, we recommend a Vada Beach-because of the sand.
Livorno and Pisa are also a MUST on a Tuscany Trip.
We thank you Le Vecchie Cantine Team for all the beautiful moments on our vacation.

Yours,
Family W. from Germany
