This 12th century castle allows you to step back into the middle ages. The charm of the castle, the adjacent hamlet and farmhouse makes this castle a great choice for an unforgettable wedding. You can enjoy the beautiful chianti hillside while sipping their own Chianti wines. Wine tours, cooking classes and horseback riding can also be arranged. The castles proximity to nearby towns and historic centers like Florence allows you to enjoy all Tuscany has to offer.
"Together with my family, including my granddaughter we arrived at the castle from Florence. Through the vineyards none of us recognized how we reached the castle. Our charming room had a great angle view and furnished with antique furniture.
The castle was built more than 11 hundred years ago. While in or outside, I carried in my mind the question of who lived in the past in the same places that I am enjoying now... In the heart of Chianti, enjoy the nature, the house wine, ride the horses, experience the great hospitality of the managment......
If you are ready for a perfect experience, rush booking to honour the great tradition of the past at this castle."Istanbul
"Just stayed at this magnificent charmer! Well marked signs led us to the gorgeous castle.....a warm welcome, a lovely junior suite in the castle (although they also have apartments on the property)....speaking of the property - it is set on and around hills and vineyards - totally lovely...we arrived, were greeted warmly and shown to our room on the first floor of the castle - we entered and the curtained 4 poster bed, large room, modern bathroom and sitting room - and windows with views took our breath away! Dinner was either inside or outside - we chose outside and the food was amazing! Having tasted the wine earlier in the day, we chose the Chianti Riserva (delicious!) for dinner, but also loved the Classico (really fine) and we bought several bottles as well as olive oil upon departure. Service at dinner was attentive, but allowed us to talk, meet other guests and take pictures....it was nice to totally relax and enjoy our selves....there's a pool, we took a morning hike in the vineyards (tasted a few grapes too), a view from the top of the castle tower....just a totally transporting place...explore Tuscany during the day and return in the evening to relax, dine, and sleep well..the grounds have chairs, chaises and other cormfortable places to recline."Houston, USA
"Stay at a castle in Tuscany and enjoy! This was a great experience. The castle was beautifully decorated. The rooms were great and showers were great! The hot (lukewarm water) on top of the tower had fantastic views and with a bottle of wine was so enjoyable. The dinner at the castle was very good and romantic. The people at the castle went out of their way to accommodate our needs and were very helpful and nice. The horse back ride through the vineyard and olve tree groves was wonderful. I highly recommend this castle stay."Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
