About The Experience

If you’ve ever had a hankering to stay in a historic Castle in Tuscany amidst vineyards and Chianti towns, this fits the bill. Owned by a Florentine family, this castle estate is well located for daytrips throughout the region. There is a restaurant onsite open six days a week and a lovely garden and pool area. The castle has been divided into several apartments. In addition, there is a farmhouse and other units on the estate that share the castle grounds and pool.

Location Description

The property is located one kilometer from Montagnana where there are several food shops and a restaurant. Five kilometers away is Montespertoli, a town dating back to the Etruscan times. Today, you’ll be able to buy groceries, go wine tasting, visit medieval castles, shop for souvenirs, attend food fairs, and eat at one of the many restaurants. There are numerous annual festivals throughout the year celebrating everything from wine to doughnuts to ecology. There are also a number of notable churches and ancient buildings, including the Chiesa di Sant’Andrea and the Villa Sonnino. Short drives away that offer wonderful views of the countryside are to Florence and San Gimignano. When in Florence, visit the Piazza San Giovanni, also known as the religious heart of the city, and you’ll see the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, built in the 15th century. Other marvelous attractions include the Ponte Vecchio where you can go shopping, the Accademia Gallery full of Florentine paintings, and the Uffizi Gallery, one of the oldest and most famous art museums in the world. There is also a train station in Florence that can take you quickly and conveniently to other cities in the region.

Nearby Attractions:Montespertoli is surrounded by farms, olive mills and wineries including the Fattoria La Gigliola Winery. It celebrates food, wine and ecology with its many festivals. The Chianti Wine Festival is usually held the first week of June. Worth a visit is the the Chiesa di Sant’Andrea, as well as Villa Sonnino. Greve in Chianti hosts the biggest wine festival in the region each September and is also a fun town to explore. Its central piazza, Piazza Mercatale, is uniquely shaped like a funnel. Nearby Certaldo and its medieval village of Certaldo Alta are full of medieval architecture such as the Pretorio Palace. Don’t miss the Renaissance festival held every July.

Overall:
It was fun to be staying at a castle. The location was good. The place itself was neat and clean and for our needs it was fine.
Enjoyed Most:
Walking around the property was enjoyable. Finding the grotto with its statuary just by chance was fun.
Enjoyed Least:
Without sounding too grumpy, I guess I was expecting to have more privacy. Others' tables and chairs outside were very close. The indoor lighting was minimal at night, the kitchen was basic, and we would have liked to have had more hot water for showers.
Surrounding Area:
Very pretty area. Throughout the trip I never got tired of looking at the olive groves and grape vineyards and the wonderful castles and fortified towns.
Tips or Restaurants:
For our last night, we tried the restaurant just 15 minutes away and it was excellent.
Directions:
Thank heavens for GPS.

Eileen, October

Show All 12 Reviews

Overall:
Wonderful. Wonderful. A magnificent castle with out-buildings in beautiful countryside. We rented 5 units - all in the out-buildings. I entered the same comments for all 5 units.
Enjoyed Most:
The old castle is from a movie set. Beautiful. The out-buildings are tastefully blended in.
Enjoyed Least:
Kitchens were a little primitive, but quite adequate. The in-house restaurant seemed expensive.
Surrounding Area:
The views and the clean air.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana was about a 15-minute easy walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Eating out or eating in cooking are both good options.
Directions:
There are 2 entrances to the estate. One is easier than the other. Look around.
Check In Out:
Keyholder is in the out-buildings after hours.
