Badia a Coltibuono was the first wine resort in Chianti opening it's doors to travellers and visitors who want to share a truly unique experience. Here it is possible to encounter the magic of a venue, to observe the slow yet intense rhythm of a 1000 year old abbey and to sleep in history. Guests can relax in the magnificent Italian style garden or, during the summer months, around the large open-air swimming pool. The 800 hectares of forests which frame the abbey are crisscrossed with walking or mountain biking paths and provide a pristine natural backdrop. We offer our guests the guided tour of the abbey and we grant discounts on wine tastings, cooking classes, at our restaurant and at “la bottega di Coltibuono”.
