We were traveling with our two little ones (1 and 2). We were met with great service and a warm welcome at the reception. The staff went above and beyond for us and were so happy. Our room was well prepared and met all of our expectations, plus some. It really is a great experience staying in a castle and... More

The setting is fantastic. Stunning views over the Chianti hills and the local vineyard as you drive up the hill to the property. The primary business is the vineyard and the wine/olive producing with the hotel aspect a secondary add on but this makes it an utterly charming boutique hotel and although you have to let them know rough arrival...

The place and the landscape are gorgeous but the service was a disappointment: - the (lack of) staff was always very busy,doing different tadks,without time to answer your questions; - no room cleaning and also you need to leave the kitchen cleaned and all the garbage collected; - very old TV; - inexistent heating; - no staff beyond 6h30 and...

It's a medieval castle, so don't expect modern design interior. But the people are friendly and helpful. Our room was super large, decoration in line with the building, but with modern airco! Views are of course stunning. Breakfast is served in the on site restaurant.

I cannot praise the accommodation at Rocca di Castagnoli enough. Our two bedroom apartment was wonderful, full of character and spacious. The only potential problem was that when we booked it, it was described as being air conditioned, but it wasn't. The weather was cool while we were there, so it was fine. The kitchen was also not very well... More

We have stayed in Tuscany, in a variety of accommodation types, for many years. This has to rank as one of the best experiences we've had in Italy - despite indifferent weather this year. The medieval hill-top town and winery is idyllic - you can feel the history around you; the management is first class and the staff are all... More

The winery was recommended by our hotel and we had no idea what to expect when we arrived. Christina was our host for the wine tasting and was amazing, we couldn't fault her, she was knowledgeable, funny, very warm and welcoming. She took us through the winery first and explained how the wine was made and what makes a Chianti... More

I need to preface this review by saying I have been involved in active tourism in Italy for the last 18 years, at the highest level, acting as manager for several of the top active travel companies based here in Italy.

We visited Chianti in early July and stayed at Rocca di Castagnoli for a wonderful week. We chose to rent an apartment so that I could shop the local markets and do some cooking. We loved our little apartment - one huge room with everything we needed - in the castle. The bathroom was amazing with an astounding shower! While... More

Stayed here for four nights. No AC, No stand up shower. but the staff made up for the lacking of modern conveniences. Wine tasting included--amazing. Big pool was a great view of the countryside. swallow nests with baby birds had the girls fascinated. Max the manager of the restaurant was great. Christina and Esther in the winery were super helpful.... More

“Apartment La Mazzina: bedroom has a great view on a valley, the living room overlooks the restaurant kitchen, you might hear the noises from there. Breakfast is very well worth its price.”

“In the apartments, we noticed that one had a smelly bathroom so we moved. My husband says you need to stay in the higher rooms in the castle to avoid the smell. Apartments are different configurations so ask about what's on offer if you prefer larger living space and light versus more bedrooms and better kitchen.”
