My wife and I just returned from a week at this spectacular farmhouse in one of the prettiest areas of Tuscany, I cannot say enough good things about the views that surround this place. Walking around the property the views are spectacular in every direction, and with the colors just beginning to change into the reds and yellows we are accustomed to in New England, it was a great setting.

Marco and Roberto were gracious hosts and were willing to go above and beyond our expectations, giving us special dining options. Food was a great value at $ 26 euro per night for a 4 course very delicious meal.

We had the opportunity to visit Volterra, Siena, San Gimignano, Florence and Castellina (loved all 5 places) and did the Castello di Verrazano wine tour/lunch, which we both loved and would recommend to anyone.

Weather was not great for our week with only 2 sunny days and temps never reaching 70, but we left very happy knowing that someday we will return again and will whole heartedly recommend this place to everyone.

the only reason our rating was not 5 stars for everything was the overly hard mattresses which left us uncomforable. We have plush pillow top mattress at home which could have affected our opinion as well.

We have just returned from a wonderful week spent at Romitorio Di Serelle. The location is just perfect with the most fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside from all directions. It is the ideal base for sightseeing, being so central in the Chianti region and less than an hour from Florence and Sienna.

Our apartment "La Torre" was beautiful, very rustic, full of charm, clean and spacious. Marco, Roberto and Co were all very friendly and helpful, providing the answers to all our questions.

We ate in the restaurant and found the food to be authentic and delicious, it is 4 courses and very filling but they change the menu every day and it was some of the best food we have had in Italy.

We had a fantastic week and each evening we looked forward to returning to the perfect spot to relax and unwind and after a busy day of sightseeing.

Just how beautiful, serene, and romantic this place is. As soon as we arrived, and checked out our room (La Tinaia), my wife and I both remarked that no matter what words we say, or how many pictures we show, we will never be able to convey the feeling of looking out over the vineyards, olive groves and forests of the Chianti area, the town of San Donato off in the distance, the peace and solitude. Another reviewer has already described RdS as Heaven on Earth. Indeed.
Opening the bedroom window in the morning (see picture) actually took my breath away.

The restaurant is excellent. Great four course meals (fixed menu). Each night was a different and new surprise. At 26 E a plate, plus another 20 - 30 for wine (some of it grown "in that vineyard, right over there" you are dining al fresco, overlooking sunbathed vineyards as the sun sets. Beat that!

Marco, Lorella, Roberto and various other family members (and 2 cats) were all gracious hosts. Never intrusive, but by the end of the week, you almost feel like family. No wonder several of the other couples there were repeat visitors ( one couple on their sixth visit!).
As well during the week, you get to meet interesting people from all over the world, partake in a wine tasting event, and best of all, relax and unwind under the Tuscan sun.

We will be back,

What an incredible Tuscan experience! We loved staying at the farmhouse...exquisite views all around, beautiful landscaping, gracious hosts, incredible food... Marco and Lorella are welcoming and accommodating. Roberto served us the most amazing meals, always with smiles and kindness. And the friendly groundskeeper and cook are of course greatly appreciated as well. The Romitorio di Serelle is conveniently located in the heart of Chianti, making daily excursions to various towns in Tuscany very convenient. We loved Castellina -- the closest Tuscan Hill town. Traveling to Sienna, San Gimignano, Radda, and Florence are easy day trips. Great pool for the kids after a day of exploring. Highly Recommend!!

The setting,overlooking vineyards, is spectacular. The apartments were neat, clean and spacious. The management could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Our evening meals were amongst the finest we experienced in all of Italy. Easy travel by car to other areas in Tuscany. The swimming pool was most relaxing.
