About The Experience

If you have 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 day trips 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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Beautiful, large castle in a picture perfect location that seemed like something out of a Tuscan fantasy.
Enjoyed Most:
The views from every direction almost seemed orchestrated, but were gorgeous. The location certainly offered a wonderful diversity as it had proximity both to nearby Firenze, but also to the FI-PI-LI highway which allowed quick and easy access to the beach along the Tyrrhenian Coast and points in between. Not to mention that just wandering the back roads of Tuscany and discovering the charming towns was a completely amazing experience.
Enjoyed Least:
Perhaps the fact that it seemed very 'hotel' like and that there were a large amount of other tourists and families staying there. It was a beautiful place, but if one is looking for a serene, sedate location, this is not it. Also, the Wi-Fi issue comes up again. The only location where it worked was the great hall outside the reception office and only when the staff remembered to leave it on. There was always a crowd of us gathered around the giant King Arthur sized table surfing and trying to avoid mosquitoes. Thankfully it did not cost anything, but might have been nicer in the rooms or out by the pool.
Surrounding Area:
The sheer beauty of the countryside and how a region could seemingly change character with a few turns and going over a couple of hills. Not to mention that Firenze's greatness was literally a quick, easy ride away. Add the free parking up on the Piazza Michelangelo and not having to take a car into the city and it was heavenly.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Technically, Montagnana was the nearest town, but it was barely more than a few buildings and Cerbaia was the largest 'near' town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring mosquito netting and duct tape if coming in the summertime with the sweltering heat and killer mosquitoes. Nearby Cerbaia and San Casciano were amazing little places to get quality food at very low prices without breaking the bank.

Enjoyed Most:
The views were amazing - exactly how we had imagined.
Enjoyed Least:
It was really cold at night and there was no heating allowed at the time we were there. Bed was also very hard and uncomfortable and the blankets kept slipping off.
Surrounding Area:
So close to everything. Loved exploring the towns and cities of Tuscany.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Baccaiano. Fairly easy to walk there but to get back is uphill all the way and would be pretty exhausting.
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurant in the castle is excellent and very convenient! Bring warm pyjamas and bring a radio if you can't handle the peace and quiet!! We weren't aware that there is a bus from Florence that goes right past the castle until we got there. Trying to navigate our way out of Florence in our rental car was a nightmare!!! The car definitely came in handy to explore the rest of Tuscany, but wasn't necessary like we were lead to believe. You could have gotten around by getting a bus into Florence and then a train out to other towns.
