Customer Reviews

Overall:
Love this property. Second year in a row I have been there.
Enjoyed Most:
Location makes easy access to Pisa, Florence and the Chianti region. Property is a piece of history. Day trips are easy access in all directions.
Enjoyed Least:
Since it is a historical property there are no elevators. If you are on 2nd or 3rd floor, this makes for a workout. The owners are maintaining the historical charm which I think is awesome. This is what you want to experience at a property like this, its true structure.
Surrounding Area:
The grounds and surroundings are peaceful and breathtaking.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Forgot the name of the small town we walked to and had dinner. It was true Tuscan food at Il Focolare.
Tips or Restaurants:
This is not a hotel, so you are required to bring your own supplies. It is a do-it-yourself set up.
Directions:
We used GPS and we were fine.
Check In Out:
No, both times there we had no issue.

Sadia, October

Overall:
Spacious apartment, clean and appropriately furnished. The bedroom is very good and comfortable, as is the bathroom.
Enjoyed Most:
Peaceful, enjoyable and great advice from the personnel (directions, things to see). Easy parking.
Enjoyed Least:
Absence of a view (the windows are positioned high) and erratic WiFi service. We would have liked to have had an elevator or assistace with luggage.
Surrounding Area:
Easy acces to Firenze by bus, easy travel by car to other points of interest, such as Lucca.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana is 1 km away, so walking distance is OK, though I preferred taking the car to go do the shopping for the meals.
Tips or Restaurants:
It is a great place overall, clean, spacious and well-situated.
Directions:
No GPS needed, directions supplied were OK and we had a proper map.

Real, September

Enjoyed Most:
The staff was very helpful....the apartment itself was quite spacious......we enjoyed several fun meals at the resturant.
Enjoyed Least:
I kept hitting my head on a beam in the bedroom.....I'm 6' 1........
Nearby Events or Locales:
We never tried to walk......if you went up the hill, there was a quite good restaurant in that little community....recommended by the staff.
Check In Out:
When we got there, it was raining....my wife speaks a little Italian so she was able to communicate with a nice, helpful man there who helped us check in......

Philip, September

Overall:
The castle was fabulous and was as good as advertised. We had planned it as a base to explore Tuscany and as a place that our children would enjoy. And it worked on every level; there were lots of other children (although none that spoke English) but it was not noisy. It was less than an hour to Siena and many other Tuscan towns. The rooms had large 15+ ft ceilings, the fridge was cold, and there were plenty of dishes and utensils. This property was very well run. Being such a large operation it had office staff who knew the local area and a couple of languages.
Enjoyed Most:
The castle was beautiful, the grounds were beautiful and the views of the Tuscan landscapes were beautiful.
Tips or Restaurants:
There is a great little Trattoria/ Pizzeria about 2 minutes away in Bacciano (sp?) called Da Paollo's. It is run by the owner and has a great menu for the adults and great pizza for the kids, my kids say that it was the best pizza they ate in Italy (and they ought to know as they ate pizza and gelato all across the country.) Although we had many fine eating experiences in Italy this was our favorite place, with great food and friendly service we would heartily recommend it to your clients.
