Reviewed 1 April 2012

You cannot imagine how wonderful this Castle is until you are there!
Our daughter and her fiance found Montalto for their wedding and we are so fortunate they did. What an amazing week! We had 41 people there and each of us were able to enjoy the facility, area and ambiance.
The owners and concierge were ever friendly, welcoming and available for any assistance.
We were able to enjoy hikes, bike rides, tennis, horseback riding, boccie ball and lounging by the pool. Each room has a kitchen, which made for fun cooking,potlucks and parties. The local stores are full of the finest Italian necessities.
Mostly, for the wedding, we were stunned. The ceremony in the courtyard, followed by a reception in the upper patio, and a fabulous dinner including truffle risotto, handmade ravioli, stuffed mushrooms (my favorite) and wild boar.
If ever there was the perfect week in my life, this was it. And I can only highly recommend it to anyone wishing for the best experience not only for their daughter's wedding, but for a full time of joy.

We wanted to find an out-of-the-way place to stay on a vacation near Sienna, Italy. I was online looking for vacation rentals in that area when I found Castello di Montalto, an authentic 1000-year old castle outside Sienna. This place was exactly what we needed. For 7 days we stayed in an apartment in one of the towers that guarded this castle for centuries. During the day we traveled to many hill-top towns in the Tuscany region, and in the evening we spent quiet nights reading by the fireplace. It was early June and, yes, several nights we made a fire. Diana and Giovanni Coda-Nunziante, only the third family to own this castle in centuries, are gracious hosts who's sole ambition is to make your stay at Montalto an unforgettable experience. And unforgettable it is !!

If you love Italy as we do and would like to experience life as it was centuries ago, take a look at www.montalto.it. We think you will find it enchanting.

Room Tip: This is a walled castle with 12 apartments scattered about. Two are outside the walls. Some apartm...

We were lucky to have found montalto through the net and after a visit in the winter, we decided to organise our wedding there in september. Our families, friends and anyone involved in the event felt the absolute magic of the place. A very big thank you to diana and giovanni who graciously guided us and supported all our decisions. Looking forward to visit you again soon. highly recommended and forever part of our journey.

Castello di Montalto is a most worthwhile experience. The aesthetics of the architecture, the gardens, the views and the apartment combined to make this the most enjoyable and comfortable stay in our experience. The location is perfect for visiting Tuscany's and Umbria's treasures. Breakfasts were a great value, offering abundance, quality and variety. Thanks to Alexandro we had excellent guidance for all of our touring both nearby and throughout Tuscany and were able to manage all the "little things" with ease. Diana and Giovani are superb hosts. We cannot reccomend Castello di Montalto more highly.

Room Tip: All the apartments we saw offer wonderful views and amenities. The most recently refurbished apartm...

With a group of friends, I have just completed my fifth stay at Montalto, this time in Loggia. And again, all of my party found that our stay was excellent value for money. Warm welcome, helpful and informative staff, perfect location for exploration of Tuscany. When we weren't out sightseeing, we enjoyed the pool or the walking opportunities around the castle. The nearby village of Castelnuovo became our second home. Once again, our enjoyment of the Montalto experience was underscored by the hospitality and warmth of Diana and Giovanni, and by the consistent helpfulness of Alexander. I look forward eagerly to my next visit, and warmly commend Montalto to prospective visitors to Tuscany. Michael (Australia)

We were two couples age late 50's to early 60's. Stayed in the tower for 2 weeks and found it absolutley amazing. Our hosts Diana, Giovanni and Alessandro made us feel so very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The tower was just as we expected, full of charm, character and creak and of course the resident ghost as befits a castle. We enjoyed our walks through the woods and out lesiurely lunches under the patio. The beds were comfortable and the showers hot, and the kitchen was well laid out and practical.
The nearest train station (Bucine) is 20 minutes away (if you drive like an Italian) and 25 minutes or so if you come from anywhere else, from there you can of course connect to anywhere in Europe. We utilised this method of transport to visit Florence (for the day) and Venice for an over night stay. Both trip abour 2 hours each way.
We adored our time at the castle and have only positive memories of our stay in every way.
Thankyou Giovanni, Diana for letting us share your castle with you, and thankyou Alessandrso (jack of all trades).

Our daughter and her husband and family stayed here in Oct 2010 and recommended the small Scuola cottage to us. It was a great location, very quiet, tucked away at the end of a short dirt road. The management and staff were very helpful though not intrusive. The history of the castle is amazing and the afternoon tea with the owners explaining the history was something special. We would return and would definitely recommend this. Scuola is good for couple and has no stairs.
