If you aren't interested in something off the beaten path, so go back to Rome. This place was a very welcome relief coming from the bustling Rome. We highly recommend this place and wish we could have spent more time there.
Fantastic service from Barbara, Marco and others.
Amazing breakfast options.
Beautiful property and location.
The local restaurant was very good.
The owner is wonderful and runs an amazing and welcoming operation.
They really do try and make it feel like home.
Thing to be aware of:
Slightly remote for those that get nervous about being off the beaten path.
If the local restaurant is closed, you will have to drive elsewhere for dinner.
Book a room ASAP, not sure how long they intend to host guests. Make sure you have arranged tours and transportation beforehand, and consider dinner plans.
Thank you Marco and Barbara for a wonderful time. We are so glad to have been your guests. We wish you the best and hope to be back again someday!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Castelletto di Montebenichi, a perfect spot for visiting Tuscany, located in the Chianti, half way between Siena and Arezzo. Staying at the Castelletto is a magic experience offered to a few guests only who will enjoy precious works of art, including period frescoes, archeological finds, sketches and antique paintings, drawings, sculptures, bronzes and ceramics. They will be caught up in a pleasant, unforgettable out-of-this-time atmosphere. In this ancient mansion, dating back to XII century, tradition and modern comfort are combined perfectly. Guests are encouraged to move free like in their own home in a comfortable and familar, yet elegant and exclusive environment. At a few steps in the park guests can enjoy a swimming pool, a small sauna, and a gym with a jacuzzi mini-pool along with a marvellous view over the surrounding hills and the valley. The Castelletto has no restaurant, but around the corner a wonderful "trattoria" called "L'Orciaia" offers tasty traditional Tuscan dishes. ... more less
