Well-if you are looking for a relaxing, luxurious place to stay, with the best food and more importantly the most outstanding hostess (Doogie), host (Gigi) and staff (Mohammed and Kamel to mention just two) this is the place! 16 of us overtook this fabulous hotel last September and it is still all we talk about. It was a warm, wonderful home, away from home.
Whatever you want or need from Chianti, this is the place to find it. Seriously, Doogie, Gigi and Mohammed will make your stay unforgettable. The only thing you will worry about is how to get back to the hotel villa la grotta for your next stay!

My wife and I recently spent 4 days at Villa La Grotta as part of a wonderful holiday to celebrate her 40th birthday. Having planned this holiday for months, Villa La Grotta was certainly one of the destinations we looked forward to most, which can sometimes be dangerous if your expectations build up too much. Well, the moment we drove into the hotel we knew we would not be disappointed. Maitre D Mohamed showed us to our room which was huge and very comfortably appointed. It is old style, but when you stay in a 9th century villa, I think thats what you would anticipate?? There was a bottle of prosecco on ice waiting for us to recognise the special occasion, and despite not arriving until almost 8pm, the kitchen was waiting for us with dinner on the terrace. This treatment continued throughout our entire stay, and will provide a lasting memory of our trip. GG's espresso and morning directions, Mohamed's "nothing is too much trouble" attitude, and of course Doogie to bring it all together - if we weren't so damn far away I'd be back next week for more!
If you are looking for a complete getaway, Villa La Grotta's location is ideal, set amongst vineyards and with views from the rooms that are to die for. Whilst there is total peace and quiet in this tranquil setting, you are also perfectly located for exploring Chianti's many villages, castles and wineries, and for some serious shopping, Siena is just a stone's throw away. After exploring the region each day, we relaxed by the pool, and then ate in the restaurant on the terrace. All meals were excellent (especially the spaghetti with duck ragout) and the buffet meal on our final evening which was shared at one long table with many of the local residents was quite a highlight. Thankyou Doogie and GG, we look forward to another visit in the not too distant future.

We had a great holiday staying at the hotel Villa la Grotta in Gaiole in Chianti. The accomodation was superb and the restaurant very good. A very relaxing retreat, very quiet and an ideal place to chill out. The swimming pools were very good and well maintained. The manager and staff very helpful and kind. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

Lots of wonderful places to visit close by and Siena within 30 minutes.

I certainly hope to return there in the future.

This beautifully restored hotel is an incredible gem. Such a beautiful location, with all the amenities you could possibly wish for (indoor/outdoor pool, turkish baths, permanent pampering, stunning rooms...), the staff make you feel like part of the family. And the food - well well, it's just incredible. Without a doubt the best cooking I have ever enjoyed in Italy, delicious yet simple. The whole trip was absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to come back. Don't even think of staying anywhere else, you have no idea how much you would be missing out on!
