“It's not only the views....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

As 2 couples we stayed for 5 nights after visiting the lakes and we felt that we had chosen the best possible spot in Tuscany being close to both Siena and plenty of lovely small towns - Radda,Greve and Gaiole and the larger town of San Gimignano and Volterra - all worth visiting. All the hotel rooms looked to be of a good size - the rooms overlooking the back of the property have a view to die for from sunrise to sunset. The hotel itself is kept spotlessly clean. Free internet is available in a room hundreds of years old - weird sensation ! I'd agree with other contributors about the breakfast - adequate.The pool area is truly restful - eating walnuts as they drop off the trees surrounding the pool. There's a terrace overlooking the pool and vineyards and can see just miles and miles of beautiful countryside.The spa considering the size of the hotel is a real bonus.....and absolutely free. The ladies on the front desk were all extremely helpful with regards to restaurant advice/booking and places to visit. The best restaurant we ate at was La Torre in the small square but the hotel provide a list of about 20 restaurants both in the town and outlying areas complete with closing days - very useful.

We loved Palazzo Squarcialupi, the hotel is very nice with a great spa, and the staff was very friendly. The town is very charming and has some great restaurants. I highly recommend staying here.

I can't say enough about this hotel. The location was beautiful. The rooms fabulous. Waking up and looking out the window on the Tuscan landscape...a view I will never forget. We loved the spa and jacuzzi. A great find.

The Palazzo Squarcialupi is without doubt one of the best we have stayed at in Tuscany. This was our second visit to the hotel and we found it even better than before. The service provided at the front desk is second to none. The room was spacious and well equipped and the atmosphere of the hotel very informal yet efficient. We loved it there. Thank you to all concerned at the hotel. 5 stars!

My husband and I came upon this hotel by chance when we were looking for somewhere to get married. Unfortuantely, they didn't have the facilities to host the reception (its a small hotel) but we loved the place so much that we decided to get married in the village and had all of our family members stay in the Squarcialupi for the duration of their stay.
The staff are fantastic. They could not do enough for all our guests and everyone loved the place.
It is so reasonably priced for what you get. The rooms are beautiful. The town is gorgeous. There is a lively little wine bar across the road. It makes a great base to explore the chianti region.
If you get the chance, stay here. You won't regret it!

This hotel is a place which we try to return to each year for a get away without the children, We fly to Pisa, drive down in around 1 1/2 hrs, park up and have usually had a swim before lunch - perfect! We then don't get back into the car until we are heading home as all the restaurants are within walking distance. The rooms are all lovely and the spa is great at the end of a day by the pool.

My sister and I spent 3 wonderful nights at this hotel and cannot rave enough about the location, the beauty of the palazzo, the staff, etc. Our room was huge, the view from our room was spectacular as we were able to watch the sun set on the Tuscan hillside every night from our own private balcony! Every day was asked the staff for suggestions, directions, etc., and they were so patient, helpful, and informative. In fact, when we left we drove from Tuscany to the Amalfi Coast, and the woman at the desk (cannot remember her name) actually printed out step by step directions for us! The town of Castellina is absolutely charming...great restaurants, quiet, and not a lot of tourists! We would return here in a heartbeat! It's a great location as well for day trips to different Tuscan towns!
