Very Impressive Castle
The castle is incredible and the views are equally as impressive. There is a very nice restaurant on site for breakfast and dinner, and the food and people are lovely. We had a small balcony in our room that provided amazing views of the tuscan hillside from our bed!
The tiered gardens and pool are beautiful and well kept. The only reason we cannot give our stay 5 stars is that we had some trouble with the heat and hot water while staying there. We stayed in March and it gets cold at night. Unfortunately the first night we were there, we had no heat or hot water. The receptionist promptly arrived to our room at 9 AM the next morning with a maintenance man, who was able to fix it temporarily, but it went out again additional times while staying there. I'm sure this is an isolated incident, but it really effected our stay. Again, I want to emphasize how helpful the receptionist and staff were. We would still stay here again. If you want to stay at a really cool 13th century castle with amazing views, this is your place. If you want to stay in a comfortable 5 star hotel, do not stay in a 13th century castle.

Very charming, newly refurbished apartment in one of the original towers of the castle.

July 2014. Had a wonderful time. Staff very helpful. Views fantastic. Seperate restuarant was just right & extremely helpful to small changes to the meal plus wonderful daily hand made pasta dishes. Need a car really - unless happy for pool and walks around about - but such wonderful views as you drive around pity to miss that.

Excellent experience staying in an actual castle. Beautiful location ideal for people with a car to do day trips in Tuscany (Florence, Pisa, Siena etc...). We stayed in the bastione room and the downstairs area (kitchen/living room) is perfect: nice and cool so we didn't have to use the air conditioning

We had our wedding at this castle and stayed there for a week with our guests. Valentina was superb in helping us plan the wedding from abroad and her suggestions were absolutely fabulous. Our guests simply rave about the wedding ceremony/reception and the whole event and Valentina was the one who made it all happen: she is a true professional! The castle itself is simply marvellous, full of history, very functional and the staff (including Giuseppe who makes sure everything is in working order) are very kind and helpful. This week was by far one of our best vacations ever and the wedding is recognized by all our guests as just amazing!

This was a wonderful place if you want a true Italian experience. It's not a hotel! It's quiet and quant. There are no amenities but if you want to feel the "Italian" experience, it's great. The staff is very accomadating.
