Me and my husband stayed here onnour honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Not only the hotel but all of the surroundings.
I had contacted the hotel the day before our visit and hadn't even booked the hotel. They were very quick to reply with all the information i needed as we were travelling without a car.
From the emails prior to booking, the transfers to the hotel, the hotel itself and all the reccomendations on places to see and and things to do this place was amazing. Highly reccomended. They even organised a dinner reservation and transfers to a nearby winery in san gimignamo. Definately worth a visit!
Hotel has a wonderful view, breakfast daily and a very tasty dinner.
This place is a little GEM ontop on the hill!
We will definately return to stay here again.
This is a beautiful hotel, in a spectacular location at the top of a hill. The rooms were amazing, the pool was great, and the breakfast was delicious and was served in a separate building on the grounds with amazing views. Has free parking, elevator. Staff was very helpful and courteous. We wish we had stayed longer to enjoy the atmosphere, we only had booked for one night. We walked down the hill to the town for dinner. Would definitely recommend this Hotel to all.
We had a great holiday based at "the old paper mill", whizzing around Tuscany in Florence (our hired Fiat 500 who did sterling work up and down and around the hills and winding roads). Colle is a good base if you prefer to stay in "real" Italy, and is close enough to the touristy bits (Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra etc) for days out. The hotel staff are great - friendly and helpful, and they didn't laugh at my amateur Italiano! Our room was clean and comfy with a lovely view of the old town.
The room we stay was big and clean, but the TV was so small. Staff was ok. Free wi fi. Breakfast was good, a lot of choice. Parking space was available. Hotel sign is not obvious. Over all was above average.

We stayed for a week, but wished it could be longer, mainly due to the sincere and helpful nature of all the staff. Whatever we needed to know about the locations we were visiting they had extremely good advice, provided maps and gave useful tips about parking and areas of interest. One of our days was spent sitting by the pool side, which was extremely relaxing and the staff again, were extremely tentative making our whole holiday very pleasant and memorable. We particularly loved that the hotel has managed to retain an air of it's old ancient monastery roots whilst still attending to modern needs.
The Relais della Rovere Hotel is situated in Colle di Val d'Elsa, Tuscany, nestled in the heart of the wonderful Chianti …More
The hotel was easy to find(GPS helped), well managed and convenieant to the Autostrada to go to either Firenze or Sienna. The manager was of great assistance to us in helping us plan our touring.
It is also central to visit all of the very classsic Tuscan towns and villages and adjacent to the Chianti region. It was a nice home to return to at the end of the day. Breakfasts were excellent although one would expect so as they was a small extra charge. Internet worked well also for a small extra charge.
We would go back.
The River Elsa cuts northwards from its source in the hills west of Siena before joining the Arno. Colle di Val d’Elsa is the main centre along its Sienese upper reaches, noted for its glass industry. Some 95 percent of Italy’s lead crystal hails from here, and the lower town is crammed with shops selling its wares. The upper town is set along a winding ridge, and full of historic interest. Several museums showcase Etruscan and Sienese art.
