Strada Provinciale 62, 24, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Tuscany, Italy
"We stayed at Villa Curina for 8 days in the first half of August and still feel the benefit of the holiday a month later. The resort is small, intimate, immaculately cared for and very friendly. Staff were welcoming and never failed to give good advice on activities in the area, including restaurants besides the good facility on site (Il Convito di Curina). We had a comfortable suite with plenty of space but this isn't really necessary because so much time is spent outdoors. The pool area is lovely and there was ample space for residents even with covid restrictions. Knowing Tuscany well, we devoted most of our stay to relaxation in the hotel, but it's also a great location for exploring both Chianti and the the hilly area south of Siena (Le Crete). Given its location and facilities, it's probably not the best place for families looking for activities for their children - but is outstanding for couple on an romantic break. We can't recommend the hotel too highly and look forward to returning."
"We just took a 12 day trip to Italy and we stayed in 5 different hotels. All of others were 5 star so perhaps that is why we felt some disappointment. The grounds are spectacular, the staff could not be nicer, and the restaurant was top notch. No complaints about breakfast either. The main issue was the rooms. They were full of bugs and there were several maintenance issues we had to address. They were very attentive and even offered to switch our rooms because our children’s room was so hot. We had already unpacked so we did not move but what was odd was that they could not provide is a fan to make things better. Because we had bothered them so much about the maintenance issues we felt bad mentioning the bugs but we literally found 15-20 in each room. We had a lot of luggage and it was hard to get it all up and down the stairs. The woman who worked the front desk offered to help us but it was too much and too heavy for her. The porter was not on duty so this poor girl was supposed to help us with the bags, which we could not do to her. We found the rooms we had to be tight and hot. The living room in our villa was very cool so we asked them to set up the sofa bed in there, and they couldn’t. Why? Because no housekeeping was available and the mattress was not on the bed. They did their best to make it a pleasant stay but for us, the beauty of this place, and even the service, did not make up for how uncomfortable we were here,"
"I have to say that we were very impressed with Villa Curina. The Villa was exceptionally kept, the room was spacious, clean and with the most amazing views you can as for. The food at the restaurant was very well prepared and the service was beyond professional and accommodating. Breakfast was well executed, balanced and plentiful. Our stay was so delightful that we plan to return to the region just to stay a couple of more days at Villa Curina."
