Paradise in Tuscany
One of the BEST places we stayed while traveling in Italy. The hospitality was outstanding. We had Rita cook for us the evening we arrived and the meal was extraordinary and delicious! Rosita was so helpful with directions, having provisions for us and overall being the best hostess ever! Would book this castle over and over again!! Thank you for a wonderful time Rosita and Rita!
Thank you for your review. We can not be more happy to learn that you have appreciated your stay at the Colognole Castle and we can't wait for your return. All the members of your beautiful family will always be welcomed at the Colognole Castle. Come back soon!
Live an authentic Italian experience with old world charm, hillside views and warm hospitality!
Upon arrival, Rosita warmly welcomed us to her home or shall I say castle. We, 2 couples stayed in one of the apartments on her property which provided all the amenities we needed to be comfortable. Rosita gave us a brief history and tour of the castle, and showed us the small chapel room adorned with beautiful frescos and religious artifacts. The backyard patio and garden area provide views of the surrounding local hilltop towns, green rolling hills and vineyards. A visual delight, we spent most of our time relaxing outside when we were not touring the area. Some nearby places to see are Siena, Verrazano Winery, and off course Florence. Our last night there we asked Rosita's sister Rita who also lives on the property, to prepare a typical Italian meal for us. What a feast and a must for any visitor who stays here. Rita also gives cooking lessons. Unfortunately we did not have the time for that but I did buy her cookbook. She served a delicious meal made with herbs and spices right out of her garden along with red wine produced from their vineyards. Eating out on the patio while the sun was sitting was truly a sensory experience that the four of us will treasure. Rosita and Rita treated us like family and we hope to return for another visit. This is the place to stay if you want to have an authentic Italian experience in the region of Chianti.
Exceeded our expectations!
It's hard to even put in words what it was like staying at this Castello in Greve in Chianti. Besides the amazing view and beautiful garden, the delicious traditional Tuscan dinner that was cooked for us, the wine that we drank which was made made from the Castello's grapes, and the lovely antique furnishings and comfortable beds... besides all the nooks and crannies to cozy up in, and Rosita's wonderful dogs Furio and Cuba, who came to visit... there was something in the very air at the Castello that had us sigh with relaxation. We loved staying here. Rosita gave us excellent local recommendations for shopping, restaurants, and a wine tour. I wish I could have stayed much, much longer, and when I go back to Tuscany, it's where I will definitely stay.
If you are thinking on staying in Tuscany, you should not miss this place. Great hosts! We had fantastic authentic Italian dinner made for use on the night of our arrival. Don’t miss that opportunity. Close to the best wineries.
Dream vacation in Tuscany
Driving up to the castle was possibly one of the greatest sites I have ever encountered. It was just like a dream. Rosita was right at the gate welcoming us with open arms. Everything about our stay was perfect. The apartment was very clean and accommodating for the four of us. We were lucky enough to enjoy a fabulous meal by Rita twice for dinner and once for breakfast. I would highly recommend it! We hiked a short 30 minutes over the hill for a wine tour and food and wine pairing one of the days which was spectacular. Rita and Rosita are the best!!! You will not regret staying here. We already want to book our return visit!!
Try to imagine...
Try to imagine a place in Tuscany where you are greeted as if you were old friends by two warm and gracious Italian sisters who are going to to do everything they can to make your stay in Tuscany the best vacation you ever had. Now picture yourself in a 12th century castle on a hill overlooking picturesque vineyards and only a five minutes’ drive from Greve, the largest town in the Chianti region of Tuscany, with a beautiful square, restaurants, shops, a grocery and market days.
Such a place exists with Rosita and Rita Ricci at the Castello Di Colognole, which is an hour’s bus ride from Florence and an hour and a half’s drive to Sienna. There are two apartments from which to choose. Apartment Quarteresi where we stayed can sleep up to six with two queen bedrooms on the second floor and two single beds and a large sitting room on the third floor. My husband, my cousin, and I spent three weeks there, adding a daughter after the first week, and our Spanish exchange student daughter for a couple of nights at the end of the trip. Since you rent by the apartment, rather than by the number of people staying there, there was never a problem as we added to our group as we went along.
Having Rita and Rosita in their own apartments on the property meant having our own translator when we needed it (Rosita) and a cook for hire (Rita) when we wanted a delicious special meal prepared for our group. This vacation was one we will always remember for the Italian people we shared it with in the friendly town of Greve, and for dear Rosita’s and Rita’s gentle and enthusiastic support of everyone who is fortunate enough to come under their care. Grazie belle signore!
