The place is a bit tricky to get to if you're not used to driving on country roads, however, this is what makes it a bit more special. The location is beautiful , really nice surroundings, the castle itself is great and you must do a little explore, and there's also a nice little village next to it where we had a great lunch in a family run café with local dishes and wines. Within 5 minutes walk the opposite direction, you will find a great restaurant in an old monastery which is on the pricier side but very good value Getting to Florence took around 20 minutes and within For Italian standards, the rooms were a little tired and found some dried mosquitoes on the tiles, but generally clean. The pool was a great addition to the stay despite only using once due to the bad weather during our stay. The reception lady was very friendly and informative, the only thing that was miscommunicated was with the delivery of a birthday cake which we ended up receiving the day after

My fiancé and I had a great stay at the castle. I would recommend to stay in the cooler months - as there is no air conditioning. August was very hot - there were two fans inside, however, it felt like blowing warm air around vs cooling down. I guess this is to be expected at a castle! The bed was also a bit firm for our liking. Limited toilet paper available, you have to take out your garbage, and supply your own cooking essentials such as salt, sugar, coffee, etc. Not ideal if you are only staying a few days. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience. The on-site restaurant was lovely. If you are looking for a secluded getaway in the Tuscany countryside, this is a great option!
Rental Week: 25 Aug 2023
A gorgeous castle with a really interesting history. The views are stunning and the location is ideal. The restaurant is absolutely phenomenal too. The only drawback is that this unit is on the top floor of an old, not very well ventilated castle and the nights are insufferable during a heat wave, even with the fans provided. Also, the one bathroom has a sewage odor.
Rental Week: 16 Aug 2023
I knew we were staying in a castle but I was pleasantly surprised with how nice and large the rooms are. We had room 29 and the entry was into the kitchenette and sitting area with a large dining table. The bathroom was beautiful and very nicely updated. the beams in the main bedroom were absolutely stunning and then to walk out on the terrace overlooking the pool and gardens were so serene. We will definitely be back, such a wonderful experience at Montegufoni!!!
Rental Week: 15 Aug 2023
Exceptional!! Exceed our expectations and we loved every minute of our 4 nights in the castle! We loved our villa, very specious, well equipped, had a nice outdoor area for just us. Laundry machine close by with drying racks ready to use. The front desk manager was delightful and so welcoming! Restaurant on-site was fantastic, we had 2 nights there and loved both meals and the staff were so friendly and fun! My 8 year old loved her time at the resort, especially the pool! The pool was gorgeous and you just can’t beat the amazing gardens/scenery. We took a few day trips off property and it was a great location to get back to Florence (35 mins), and explore Tuscany towns! We truly loved our stay and we can’t wait to get back!

Très bon séjour à Montegufoni. Le Castello est incroyable, les alentours toscans sont superbes, le restaurant très bon avec du personnel très sympa et la piscine géniale! Il manquait juste un peu d'équipement"de base" même si cela était signalé : une éponge, du sel et du poivre.
Rental Week: 11 Aug 2023
Wow! - that was our reaction when we arrived at the Villa. It is a stunning place with an amazing history. The reception team were super helpful and friendly and did everything they could do to make our stay enjoyable. Their onsite restaurant is open for evening meals, and the food and service was incredible. Our spacious apartment (family of 4) looked out over the grounds and pool and was such a beautiful view to wake up to. The apartment had a well equipped kitchen and was a perfect place to have a breakfast of local cakes and bread! The only thing to note is that not all the rooms have air conditioning (its a historical villa so popping the units on the walls would look terrible! ) They did have fans though and they kept the room cool at night for us. We have recommended the Villa to all of our friends and family already and will definitely go back again. A massive thank you to all of the staff there for making our stay so wonderful :)
Rental Week: 11 Aug 2023
O castelo é bem conservado, há também um restaurante no local, que precisa de reserva, que serve pratos muito bons. Eles contam com uma piscina bem grande também. O mercado mais próximo estava a 20 minutos de carro.
Rental Week: 11 Aug 2023
Beautiful place for families and we’ll furnished. The swimming pool was just epic for the kids to enjoy after a long day of hiking. Staff is really friendly and provided us with great suggestions and tips. Make sure to bring your groceries for breakfast and lunch as the restaurant only opens for dinner. Nice restaurant though! We’ll definitely book this place again.
Rental Week: 10 Aug 2023
Amazing place! So happy to have had the experience of living inside this historic landmark. As can be expected in a centuries old castle, comfort is not at four star hotel level, we were there doing a heatwave and did miss A/C, but the staff was accommodating and provided a third electric fan. The restaurant is very very good, the staff very friendly, the gardens jaw-droppingly beautiful. Definitely highly recommended!!
Rental Week: 10 Aug 2023
L'emplacement est incroyable avec une vue sublime sur la campagne. Le restaurant est très bon et le personnel très sympathique. Il s'en serait fallu de peu pour un séjour parfait. Malheureusement mauvaise odeur persistante dans le logement, visiblement déja repérée puisqu'il y avait un diffusseur de désodoriasant automatique..... Ce logement est à considérer comme un hotel et non un airb'n'b. Equipement minimal de la cuisine avec aucun produit sauf un échantillon de produit vaiselle. Si il est compréhensible que le logement soit sombre puisque dans un vieux chateau, il l'est moins qu'il y ait si peu d'éclairage. Une seule lampe de chevet dans la chambre et sur la lampe d'appoint de la cusine une ampoule manquante.
Rental Week: 05 Aug 2023
We loved our stay at La Grotta. It’s a beautiful apartment, and the reception staff were lovely. We would have liked if there was more lighting in all the rooms however, as they were very dark. Also would be great to have mosquito plug-ins in the walls.
Rental Week: 04 Aug 2023
Super Lage, nur 35 Minuten von Florenz. Tolle „Schlossatmosphäre“, sehr idyllische Plätze u.A. auch im Restaurant oder der Bar mit wunderschönem Ausblick. Die Kommunikation vorher und vor Ort war freundlich, schnell und unkompliziert. Wir hatten ein kleines Häuschen direkt am Parkplatz (das war uns vorher bekannt). Einziges Manko: Die Ausstattung der Küche war sehr einfach und der kleine Garten mit Blick auf den Parkplatz lud nicht gerade zum Verweilen ein, aber dafür gibt es im Schloss ausreichend andere schöne Plätze um sich aufzuhalten.
Rental Week: 03 Aug 2023
Lieu vraiment magnifique et au calme. La piscine est top. Le restaurant et vraiment très bon et le personnel qui y travaille est adorable.
Logement très propre. Nous avons adoré notre séjour et gardons l'adresse si nous repassons dans la région

l'environnement est magnifique dans le chateau de Montegufoni, avec ses cours, jardins et vues. L'appartement est spacieux, et la terrasse permet de profiter du soleil au petit dejeuner, l'équipement est vraiment minimal dans la cuisine, et aucun produit n est fourni, vous pouvez tout acheter dans une commune voisine. Le restaurant ouvert le soir est très bon et propose aussi des options gluten free très appréciées. La piscine est très agréable.

The most beautiful castle in the hills with fabulous staff running it. Ready to help for day trips advise and local shopping. Just a fabulous place surpassed my expectations. Very beautiful and tranquil with a great pool.
Rental Week: 29 Jul 2023
Bien que mentionné dans le descriptif, nous aurions apprécié une cuisine mieux équipée, il est difficile de cuisiner pour une famille, l’espace cuisine étant minuscule Le restaurant est sympa mais cela revient un peu cher d’aller au restaurant tous les jours L’appartement manque de prise et il faut choisir entre un ventilateur, une lampe de chevet ou charger son téléphone Cependant l’endroit est magique, l’environnement merveilleux, à 30 minutes en voiture de Florence
Rental Week: 27 Jul 2023
We had an incredible stay at Montegufoni Castle. A special and surreal experience to stay in a place with such history. The room was very spacious, and the view from the room was a wonderful surprise. We could see the rolling hills of Tuscany from all windows. No air con but the fans kept us very cool and the room is on the bottom floor. Quiet area but great surrounds for wine tasting and exploring by car. Beautiful pool to relax after a day out in the region. Lovely restaurant at the castle and local restaurants. We enjoyed every minute!
Rental Week: 21 Jul 2023
Wir wurden sehr herzlich begrüsst und erhielten viele Tips für Unternehmungen in der Umgebung sowie Einkaufsmöglichkeiten etc. Das Schloss bietet einen fantastischen Ausstieg aus dem Alltag. Das Restaurant serviert sehr gutes Essen und das Zimmer beinhaltet alles was man braucht.
Rental Week: 20 Jul 2023
Das Schloss in dem unser Zimmer war ist wirklich toll! Man hat einen traumhaften Ausblick von der Terasse! Dem alten Gebäude geschuldet ist es, dass das Zimmer sehr dunkel ist. Unser Zimmer hatte Fliegengitter, was viel wert ist! Das Badezimmer ist in die Jahre gekommen. Der Aufenthalt dort war aber wirklich toll auf Grund des ganzen drum herums! Der Pool war immer gut besucht. In dem Restaurant muss immer reserviert werden, das Essen ist sehr lecker gewesen also lohnt es sich. Die Anlage an sich war zu jeder Zeit sehr sauber.
Rental Week: 18 Jul 2023
The old castello, the yards and the garden are really stunning. Also the view from the terrace overlooking the area is breathtaking. The bedrooms in the apartement are clean and tastefully furnished with respect for the history of the place, while the kitchen is rather dark. We stayed during a heatwave in July and beforehand we were nervous that there was no aircon, but the staff in the reception was really kind to provide us with several fans that worked surpricingly well during the hot nights. Remember to bring toiletpaper, soap, dishwasher soap, exstra dish cloths, salt/pepper etc. We didn’t know that, but again the staff helped us out untill we could drive to a supermarket.
Rental Week: 17 Jul 2023
It was a beautiful place to stay and it was so peaceful, the scenery is out of this world! The castle looks exactly like the images and was breathtaking, only thing I would mention is that you have to self cater everything yourself which we weren’t overly aware of when we arrived. For example, there was only 1 toilet roll, 1 bin bag, no coffee/tea etc so you need to supply everything yourself just so you can prepare. Well worth a stay here! Loved it!
Rental Week: 16 Jul 2023
Lovely stay with amazing views! Absolutely gorgeous! ❤️ Would recommend travel during moderate weather, if weather sensitive. No A/C and rooms can get quite hot with warm weather. Or take advantage of gorgeous pool to cool off!
Rental Week: 07 Jul 2023
Absolutely stunning place to stay. It’s even better than in the pictures on here. The staff was amazing and the food at the restaurant was so good and very well priced. Only thing I would say is if you are staying here in the heat of summer, keep in mind there is no air conditioning and in 100 degree weather, fans don’t do much.
Rental Week: 16 Jun 2023
The castle was rustic and nice. The amenities are basic, you will need to get your own food, including toilet paper. I really liked the views and it was peaceful, scenic location, you will definitely need to rent a car, no public transport upto the location. I loved the surroundings to walk and explore, its a beautiful stay if you overlook the shortcomings. It was a great deal on Air BnB. The staff was very sweet. There is no service except the check in and the restaurant only for evening/ dinner. During the day and at the pool you need to manage on your own for everything. Overall i loved the place and it was a good deal. I enjoyed driving around Tuscany from this castle.
Rental Week: 16 Jun 2023
Montegufoni is the most amazing holiday destination and I would thoroughly recomend visiting ! The castle is spectacular and steeped in history, the restaurant serves the best Italian cuisine and all this just a stones throw from the delights of beautiful Florence.
Rental Week: 14 Jun 2023
Truly a beautiful experience. The Castle was a peaceful and beautiful place, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the larger castle was so lovely to explore. The onsite restaurant was really convenient and served terrific Tuscan food. This is a gem of a holiday destination and I can't wait to return!
Rental Week: 12 Jun 2023
We had such a memorable experience staying at Montegufoni. The castle and surroundings were beautiful. The best part of our stay was the restaurant. The food was always delicious and the staff was the best. Montegufoni is centrally located to many beautiful surrounding towns, so it is easy to drive for a days excursion.
Rental Week: 12 Jun 2023
What an amazing property with outstanding service! We truly enjoyed our stay at Montegufoni 29. We specifically selected this property because of the private balcony with expansive views and were not disappointed. We had no intentions of cooking (hello, we're in Italy!) but the refrigerator was great for storing wine and snacks. It was wonderful to have the space of a full kitchen with table, larger shower, and very large bedroom with plenty of hanging space for clothes. The bedroom was the only room with an air conditioning unit, which is fully disclosed, and worked perfectly for us and was worth the extra charge. Close the bedroom door and you are sleeping comfortably! Thought to consider when planning (but not to discourage this visit): You need to bring everything you may need; paper towels, soap, shampoo...You are allotted one bath towel per person for the stay or can pay for more. If I went back, which I would in a heartbeat, I would also buy a citronella candle for the patio. (We're literally in a forest, of course there will be little buggies, just a deterrent to be more comfortable) I should mention again what wonderful service we had during our stay; check in, an issue, and check out were handled wonderfully and we are so grateful.
Rental Week: 12 Jun 2023
Beautiful old castle! We enjoyed 4 lovely days there! If I could suggest having a machine for snacks/drinks as there is nothing available for breakfast or lunch and if you don’t have a car, town is a good walk down the hill then back up with groceries.
The dinner restaurant is wonderful!
Rental Week: 09 Jun 2023
We had a wonderful week! The castle is delightful and the views are breathtaking. Our apartment was clean and well equipped with comfortable beds and lovely linen. Can recommend the restaurant food and the staff are so friendly and helpful! The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Valentina at reception does a fantastic job such a lovely, helpful person! All the staff here were outstanding. There was a wedding the weekend we arrived - it was great to see all the excited guests arriving and to watch this all unfold in such a special setting. They had the best time and the music was loud though not too late! Later in the week we had the pool to ourselves on several occasions which was totally unexpected!
Hire a car as there is plenty to explore around the area. Great vineyard tours excellent restaurants and hilltop towns. Florence is in easy reach and only 45 mins from Pisa. Our apartment had a lot of steps but not all do. There is a great little coop in the next town (10 mins drive) and a market there once a week. We had the best time and would go back like a flash!!
Rental Week: 08 Jun 2023
We had an absolut amazing stay in the Castello Montegufoni! It was even more beautiful than on the pictures, an impressive old Castel but renovated and very clean. The staff was also super friendly and helpful! We will definitely come back! :)
Rental Week: 06 Jun 2023
I stayed with some friends here for a couple of nights and it was totally worth the drive out from Florence! I would highly recommend getting a car because a taxi can be impossible to get, and we were able to drive to all of the close by wineries for tastings!!
Rental Week: 04 Jun 2023
Beautiful surroundings, peaceful and tranquil gardens. I would recommend hiring a car as the castle is quite remote. Fortunately we had been to a local supermarket and stocked up before arriving as the rooms are quite sparse, very limited toilettries and cleaning products. The castle itself is spectacular and the views are worthy of a stay in themselves. We found our room for a family of 5 to be quite small and dark. At every opportunity we were out on the terraces as we felt quite claustrophobic in the room. A word of advice would be take lots of mosquito spray with you and plug ins for the rooms! Between us we were covered head to toe in bites and could hear them buzzing around in our rooms in the night. We were travelling with our toddler and did not realise there was an additional charge of €50 for a cot to be put in the room for 2 nights. This is stated on the website which I missed; however I did feel it was quite steep considering the length of our stay.
Rental Week: 02 Jun 2023
Hermoso castillo. A nuestra llegada, de noche. Nos recibieron las luciérnagas y un ambiente místico del lugar. Franchesco muy amable nos recibió pasada la hora de check in y hasta me ayudó con las maletas. El restaurante sirve una comida deliciosa!!
Rental Week: 02 Jun 2023
La villa était incroyable, grande et très adaptée à notre week-end entre amis. La décoration est rustique mais tout à fait dans le style du château.
Seuls inconvénients :
- le débit d'eau dans les douches est vraiment faible. Nous ne pouvions pas utiliser simultanément les douches sinon, avions un filet d'eau inexploitable pour se laver les cheveux par exemple.
- les moustiques !!!! De vrais tueurs dans les chambres du haut ! Ils se sont régalés !
En dehors de ça nous avons passé un incroyable moment ! Les professionnels (réceptionnistes, employés du restaurant etc.) étaient extrêmement serviables !
Le domaine est d'une incroyable beauté !
Rental Week: 31 May 2023
We had a wonderful time at Castello Di Montegufoni. A beautiful location with incredible views. The rooms are very traditional Italian, very rustic. Loved it. Ours was called Torre 2. Spacious room with a big balcony with stunning views. Bathroom was modern and clean. Every staff member we encountered we're truly lovely. They couldn't be more attentive. I wanted to give a shout out to Francesco in the restaurant. Very knowledgeable, attentive and warm person. Talked us through each wine and knew everything on the menu. Even gave us recommendations of places to go and things to do. Definitely considering coming back here again next year. Hopefully we don't get bad weather this time! Thank you.
Rental Week: 30 May 2023
our stay at Castille di Montegufoni was restful. the grocery store that is in the nearby town is very well stocked and everyone in the town was super friendly. the staff at the Castille were so hospitable. Gabriel the grounds keeper and late night front desk person SAVED our first night there. from our 2 weeks traveling through Italy he was one of probably the 3 nicest people we met in out whole trip. the front desk ladies were also so kind! they helped arrange a pasta cooking class for my children while my husband and i had a private wine tasting. the front desk person also helped coordinate a driver that basically became our personal driver the entire time we were in Florence.
Rental Week: 27 May 2023
We rented one of the apartments outside the castle. Unfortunately, there were multiple mosquitos inside the apratment, despite never opening any windows, and everyone was covered in bites after 2 days. Additionally, although the apartment sleeps 8, there is no comfortable seating for that number of people, other than at the dining table. There is a small seat and 2-person 'loveseat' around the fireplace, but they are far from comfortable. The grounds in the castle 'proper' were beautiful, the pool was very pleasant, and the restaurant food and service were great. The location is convenient for exploring western Tuscany and Florence. I would recommend staying in the castle 'proper' but perhaps not in the facilites outside the castle.
Rental Week: 23 May 2023
The castle grounds are gorgeous and the apartment was minimal but recently renovated and spacious with a lovely terrace. The staff and other guests were very friendly and a pleasure to interact with. A few downsides: No wifi in the apartments; poorly stocked kitchen with basic cooking tools and a mini fridge but no salt/oil/napkins/necessities, so you must bring your own even for a short stay; the pool is not heated which means it is too cold to swim even in late May; no breakfast or lunch available on the property. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet stay in a beautiful place and are prepared to bring everything you need with you, I highly recommend the castle.
Rental Week: 23 May 2023
What a magical experience! As we ate at their amazing restaurant (it was so surprisingly good), the table next to us was made up of Canadians who had stayed at the Castello 10 years ago. hopefully we won't have to wait that long to visit again. so quiet. so peaceful. it feels as though you have the whole place to yourself. we would drive to the outskirts of Florence and then take the tram to the centre (free parking by nenni torregali). we also visited the nearby Machiavelli villa where he wrote his famous work following his imprisonment and torture. note: bring a car and there's a hefty deposit.
Rental Week: 20 May 2023
The view is amazing. The experience of staying right next to the castle or in the castle is for sure worth it and should be on anyone’s bucket list. For me it felt like a fairytale. The food at the restaurant is absolutely amazing.
Rental Week: 15 May 2023
This castle was beautiful!!! We loved it so much, the views are incredible!! The restaurant food was okay nothing crazy but the dessert and wine tasting was very good. The room was clean and beautiful. We did have difficulty with the hot water getting to work but luckily my dad could fix it! All in all a very good stay
Rental Week: 05 May 2023
A few recurrents problems with the hot water (to have a shower or to wash the dishes). The place (palace, garden, swimming pool) and the location are perfect ! Easy to join every city around (Firenze, San Giminiano...). Top
Rental Week: 27 Apr 2023
It’s a lovely castle and absolutely beautiful location. The staff are so friendly and helpful. When they say you need a car, listen! We did not have a car and took the bus. We had to walk 15 mins all uphill. Read the website about what is and is not included. Would stay again!
Rental Week: 24 Apr 2023
This place seems like a hidden gem! What a great location. We loved our spacious room, and the castle was just beautiful. The gardens were also stunning and we enjoyed the idyllic setting of the pool. The restaurant was also amazing. Such delicious food and very reasonably priced. Staff were excellent, the region is beautiful. We would definitely visit again and recommend to family and friends!
Rental Week: 22 Apr 2023
A circa 20/30 min d’auto da Firenze, 45 min da San Giminiano e Volterra e un’ora da Siena, quest’alloggio permette di godere delle bellezze Toscane nella più totale tranquillità, circondati dal paesaggio e dalla bellezza di questo castello. L’appartamento è molto ben arredato e confortevole.
Rental Week: 14 Mar 2023
Loved our stay. Spacious rooms and the balcony was a huge bonus. Sad we didn't enjoy the grounds as much since it was cold but we'd stay again. You definitely need a car as it is very difficult to get around without one, or you can do public transport but it will take 2x as long to get anywhere. The most relaxing time!
Rental Week: 08 Dec 2022
Beautiful villa in a very nice location. The unit was very spacious and comfortably fit my family. The hosts were also flexible in accommodating a place that fit my entire family. Overall great stay and would definitely go again.
Rental Week: 09 Nov 2022
Ganz besondere Unterkunft mit grandioser Außenanlage und historischem Flair. Die Kritikpunkte in anderen Bewertungen... kleine Fenster etc. sind der historischen Baussubstanz geschuldet die wirklich authentisch belassen wurde, und das ist auch gut so. Der Check-In war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommen. Der Aufenthalt war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis und wir haben uns für 4 Tage als toskanischer Landadel gefühlt ^^
Rental Week: 02 Nov 2022
Très bon accueil au château, situé à un emplacement idéal pour avoir une vue magnifique sur la campagne toscane. Personnel très arrangeant et agréable. Points négatifs : manque d'équipements dans le logement, propreté qui laisse à désirer et présence d'humidité.
Rental Week: 02 Nov 2022
Il fascino del castello inserito in una natura strepitosa, la gentilezza e la professionalità di tutte le persone che ci lavorano e ti fanno sentire accudito e protetto. Possibilità di visitare tanti bei paesi e fare piacevoli passeggiate. Firenze a pochi km. Non so cosa si possa volere di più. Tornerò senz'altro.
Rental Week: 29 Oct 2022
This is an amazing place if you want to experience Tuscany at a special location with panoramic view. Everyone working at the place is very friendly and helpful and makes you feel welcome. If you're a frequent airbnb guest and used to stay in other peoples houses/apt, you should be aware that this place is more like a hotel in the sence that the kitchen isn't equiped with salt, pepper etc. However there is a supermarket close by that has everything you need. We were very happy with our stay and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Tuscany.
Rental Week: 27 Oct 2022
Très bien accueilli, le logement est très sympathique et le cadre du château aussi. Un super marché Coop est situé à 10min en voiture, pratique pour les courses et Florence est a 30 min seulement. Les hôtes sont aussi très agréable et a l'écoute peut importe la langue. Très bonne expérience passée
Rental Week: 27 Oct 2022
Could not recommend staying here enough! This was the best place we have stayed, and truly could have stayed here for weeks. A few days is not enough… the staff was great, and even gave us a private tour of the chapel upon our request. It is historical and peaceful. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Tuscany. The restaurant is exceptional, has super quick service, and a very nice atmosphere. Don’t miss out on the chance to stay at this gorgeous castle.
Rental Week: 21 Oct 2022
I can’t recommend this place enough — we had such a wonderful time here. The grounds were absolutely beautiful, our room was very cozy, and the restaurant was phenomenal. Very friendly & helpful staff — provided a booklet of recommendations upon check-in. We loved the “apartment” approach to the entire villa — it felt less like a hotel and more like a magical home we were lucky enough to occupy for a few nights!
Rental Week: 05 Oct 2022
Great place to stay! It definitely is remote so you will need a driver or to rent a car if you are planning to leave to go into Florence. We loved the castle and it was beautiful. The bed was comfortable & the kitchen had what we needed!
Rental Week: 02 Oct 2022
Zamek jest przepięknym, klimatycznym obiektem na bajkowej mapie Toskanii. To idealne miejsce na wypoczynek zdala od tłumów, a oddalone jest od Pizy zaledwie o godzinę drogi ;) zdecydowanie polecam przyjechać tu samochodem. Będąc na miejscu warto udać się na spacer po pobliskich polach i wstąpić na degustację lokalnych win i produktów do przeuroczej Pani z Azzienda Agricola Ammirable (via Romita 39, Montagnana). Polecamy serdecznie ♡
Rental Week: 29 Sep 2022
Really enjoyed our stay: accommodated 8 comfortably, beautiful setting in historic property, delightful and helpful staff, good restaurant on property (dinner only), great pool, driving distance to a number of known sites. Other restaurants and grocery store a short driving distance. Things to consider: need a car if taking day trips, can hear most every movement inside (stairs, doors, common areas), dim lighting, couldn't get microwave to work. Overall, definitely worth the stay!
Rental Week: 25 Sep 2022
It was truly an amazing experience. Great staff and wonderful restaurant on site. We were based there for 3 nights while we toured Tuscany and Florence. I wish it could have been longer. The LA Gratta room was over the top.
Rental Week: 24 Sep 2022
Un castello e sito bellissimi, i giardini e la piscina sono ben curati,al ristorante il cibo è molto buono, gli impiegati sono molto gentili e simpatici. Si parla l’inglese molto bene! Siamo arrivati tardi la sera, e si pagano 25 euro per il late check-in che non ci dava fastidio- ma visto che il castello è in buio sarebbe una bella idea accendere le luci (che ci sono) per facilitare l’accesso?! L’appartamento stesso è vecchio quel che si aspetta vicino ad un castello, sfortunatamente anche poco pulito. Il bagno è improvvisato- che anche quello non si aspetta altro visto che all’epoca non erano le esigenze di oggi- ma si potrebbe restituire un sedile del water che si era rotto non so quando …
Riassumendo dirò che sarebbe il posto giusto per un soggiorno per pochi giorni è con tempo splendido.
Rental Week: 20 Sep 2022
wonderful premises, lovely pool and grounds, several excellent places to eat within 30 minutes walk but as property recommend, a car is needed to explore further afield. Good restaurant and self-catering accommodation was very comfortable and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will revisit!
Rental Week: 16 Sep 2022
My girlfriend and I chose this castle in Tuscany well because you’re staying in a castle!!! Our stay here was so great. They have a restaurant on site that is delicious. The best part about this place is how centrally located it is to Florence and the surrounding area. We were able to explore a ton of places. The area is beautiful and is covered with great food and wine! We can’t wait to come back. A true hidden gem of Tuscany.
Rental Week: 14 Sep 2022
We loved the castle! It felt so different to stay in such special place. The apartment was very confortable, excellent showers and amazing views. Tuscany sunlight is magical. Location was great and we would definitely come back again.

Stunning room in an amazing old castle up in Tuscany. We absolutely loved the rustic feel and the grandeur of the grounds. It's a real hassle to get to via bus, on every occasion the bus was late or just didn't come at all so I would highly recommend getting a rental car in Florence and driving down. The only criticism is how the kitchen is poorly equipped for home living; there were no cleaning products or utensils (even a cloth or sponge) and you had to buy everything yourself, even things like salt and oil which, if you're only staying a couple of nights, is irritating to buy. Aside from that though, the place is absolutely fantastic and the staff are very friendly. My wife and I went as the final leg of our honeymoon and we thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to be returning at some point in the future.

Amazing! The views are spectacular. You'll really feel like you are in an old medieval castle. While we were there, there weren't many guests. I am not sure why, as it was the peak time for travel, but either way, it was probably for the best because the isolation may be experienced all the better. The views are spectacular. You really can't get any better than this. There are plenty of areas around the property to sit and have a glass of wine. The pool was very clean. The room was clean and organized, and everything felt very private and authentic. It's a quality experience, to be sure. However, we did have to throw away our own trash as per the rules of the state. They will not be pampering you in this place (no room service or anything like that), and you can't even buy a bottle of wine on the premises after the restaurant closes. While on that note, I have to say the restaurant was absolutely stunning; however, it was not the best. Actually far from it. I frankly disliked it quite a bit. This does not take away from the five stars I will give this experience. However, I wish that the food at the restaurant was better. The staff was Wonderfull, but the food was heavily lacking. My recommendation would be to have a couple of cocktails at the restaurant during sunset and then have someone drive you down to the town where you can go to another restaurant. Overall, I would highly recommend staying at this place.

The stay was amazing, place is unique and charming. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurant on site is pretty good and with amazing view. Florence is near, you can easily go by bus. Bus stop is less than 10 minutes away. It is a perfect location to stay and travel around Tuscany region. I hope we will come back again soon
Rental Week: 11 Sep 2022
Beautiful location for people who like nature, excellent food, history and a quiet ambience. A car or vespa to get there and to explore the region is highly recommended. As there are many steps, it is not an ideal location for people with walking disabilities.
Rental Week: 10 Sep 2022
The area was great, the views spectacular. We came without a car and unless you are able to cycle or rent a scooter it is difficult to travel around. Can get a taxi but nearest taxis come from far so will cost a bit. We walked to nearest village to get supplies, but did end up eating almost every night at the restaurant, which was fantastic food. You need to supply the trip yourself but lots of help from the staff.
Rental Week: 10 Sep 2022
The castle is incredible. Story book views in a 1,200 year old castle. You simply can’t beat it. Having the restaurant on location was perfect for a night or two when you don’t feel like venturing out or had 1 too many bottles of wine. A rental car is a must for the area but completely worth it. There’s are numerous places to visit for food and wine and Florence is only a half hour drive for a day trip. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
Rental Week: 07 Sep 2022
There is much to say here, but I will start with this: Read the fine print. We were not aware until we arrived that this facility did not provide the bare essentials. We had purchased quite a bit of food for our 4 days here, yet it wasn’t until we checked in that we found out they don’t provide any types of dish soap, napkins, paper towels, or even more than one small roll of TP. Their attitude is that you should treat it like camping and pack in the supplies you will need. The check in counter was only open from 9am to 5 pm, so if you need something outside of those times, it will need to wait until the next day. I will say that the staff was very friendly and accommodated our requests for extra fans (because there was no A/C and it was very HOT) and extra pillows. Also, you will need insect repellent and anti-itch cream, because the mosquitoes here are relentless and plentiful. On a positive note, the landscape is breathtaking, and we met some nice guests at the pool. The castle (if you’re lucky enough to get a room in that part of it) was very interesting and spooky, with lots of places to explore. We stayed in the “villas” which were detached and a few hundred yards from the main facility, with far less charm and intrigue. Overall, I would recommend it, as long as you temper your expectations and know going in that it is a 1000 year old castle, and you will live similarly to those folks.
Rental Week: 21 Aug 2022
Beautiful place to stay. Gorgeous views; amazing grounds to explore & lovely pool. All staff very attentive & the restaurant was very good. The Castle was beautiful & rustic loved the whole experience & vibe of the Tuscany countryside.????
Rental Week: 19 Aug 2022
Montegufoni was a dream. The photos on the Airbnb do not do it justice. It's like getting to sleep in a museum. The staff is friendly and accommodating and I thought the restaurant had great food. My favorite part about this stay was to just sip wine and enjoy the silence and serenity of the venue and it's surreal views. 10/10 would stay again.
Rental Week: 12 Aug 2022
Very friendly personnel, very helpful with all questions. The property was beautiful and well kept. Our stay was the perfect size, the only thing we missed was more storage room in the bathrooms and more comfortable chairs at the pool. But this can be overlooked. Nice central location of the castle and the restaurant was very nice. We dined at the restaurant one evening but when we came to the dessert more than half of them were no longer available so we didn’t eat one.
Overall a very pleasant stay, can recommend!
Rental Week: 09 Aug 2022
Wow what a romantic place to stay and visit. Our accommodation was 2 mins walk from the stunning palace / castle, with beautiful gardens and a wonderful pool. Worth booking the palace restaurant for dinner, the setting on the terrace is like nothing else and the food and service is top class. I would definitely recommend and will hopefully return.
Rental Week: 09 Aug 2022
Magical is an understatement! The most romantic place to stay with beautiful views everywhere you look. Felt like a dream. The only downside is that there’s no ac so it was a little hot at night in the room. (We stayed here in August so understandably hot.) But overall amazing!
Rental Week: 05 Aug 2022
I stayed with my family at one of the houses. Two bedrooms and two baths. We went in the summer and the AC in the rooms works great. No AC at the living room. All liens and towels provided. Parking is free. You must have a car to stay there. Pool was great to cool off at the end of the day. The only thing to improve are the utensils. They offer the very basic. Things lake a toaster and cutting board are simple improvement opportunities. Internet is OK, not great. We had no issues during our stay.
Rental Week: 03 Aug 2022
nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce superbe domaine, la piscine est très agréable, et l'appartement confortable. si vous souhaitez cuisiner par contre, sachez que l'appartement ne dispose pas de suffisamment d'équipement.
Rental Week: 31 Jul 2022
We stayed there for a week and and were quite fascinated: The castle is set in a wondeful landscape. The pool is nice, the restauarnt was great.
Check - in and chek-out were without problems. The appartment was nice.
You definetly need a car - but then Florence, Siena and Pisa are within easy reach.
Rental Week: 30 Jul 2022
We loved our stay & will come back again next summer. A gorgeous castle setting & great for groups or couples. Beautiful setting and pool area. The houses are simple and plenty of room to have luggage. Fans inside & no air conditioning however we slept fine with the fans. Recommend bringing drinks and snacks to stock the fridge as it’s a little drive to an open supermarket & shops have funny opening times in summer. Some shops weren’t open so we kept driving. Restaurant is super cute & you can also just order drinks and find a nice spot on one of the many balcony areas to sit with a drink.
Rental Week: 23 Jul 2022
In general a nice stay at a resort that deserves the average rating of three stars as the average quality matches the reasonable price paid. The unusual high temperatures challenged both the resort and our stay and is obviously not to blame on the resort.The restaurant on the castle is amazing. Really good local Tuscan food at reasonable prices and a very frindly staff.
We took a drive to Vada at the coast to have a day on the beach which was also a nice breakaway.
Rental Week: 02 Jul 2022
Our apartment, "La Grotta” was unbelievable! It was like being on a movie set. Everything about this property is breathtakingly gorgeous and picturesque. We used it as a homebase and went into Florence for day trips and then visited wineries in the local area. Lots of great restaurants and small quaint towns to visit nearby. This is not a full-service hotel so it is important to know that before you go and there is no breakfast on site so if you want coffee in the morning you need to be prepared to provide your own supplies. They have all of the cooking utensils that you need. There are many wonderful little gathering spots in and around the castle for enjoying aperitifs or your lunch or dinner alfresco. Best picture taking opportunities ever! Note, our apartment did not have air-conditioning but they provided many fans and that was fine. Little to no mosquitoes so we were able to leave all of our windows wide open without a problem.
Rental Week: 21 Jun 2022
We went with my little 3yo girl who played the princess for the whole stay. Indeed, it's a real castle and you feel like it! It was amazing. The host are great and speak very well english. The room was clean and comfy. The restaurant were very nice and the waiters so kind. Be carefull: There is the strict minimum stuff inside the room (WC paper, etc..) you should take some if you want to stay more than one night.
Rental Week: 18 Jun 2022
The castle is beautiful. You will have a great experience. Everything about the Castello was great except for the transportation. This is disappointing from an American point of view. I saw families walking down the narrow winding roads to get to a bus stop. It would be more convenient if the castle would at least provide a shuttle. We had to rent a car which was also not easy as you have to go to the city of Florence which is 40 minutes away and most rentals are only available at the airport. If the transportation was more accessible this would be better for business for the castle and the surrounding towns. If you are planning on staying at the castle please allow for car rental expenses in your budget unless you plan to stay at the castle the entire time then you will only have to spend between $70 - $100 dollars for a taxi depending on the driver. This is the only downside but I would visit and stay at the castle again.
Rental Week: 16 Jun 2022
Very cool opportunity to stay in a historically significant castle in Tuscany. the architecture and grounds are lovely and interesting. We found the pool to be a wonderful place to cool off on a hot afternoon. The rooms were pleasant, albeit without air-conditioning. Fans were provided and this was actually not a big issue. If you are planning a prolonged stay, I would recommend brining along extra personal supplies such as toilet paper, soap and shampoo as these are only provided in a limited quantity. if you plan on cooking, also bring along dish soap as this is not provided, although the kitchen is otherwise well stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc.
Rental Week: 11 Jun 2022
What a magical venue! Our family had the most amazing two weeks staying here, and plan on returning in the future. The location is perfect, polite and helpful staff, amazing food, and definitely a hidden gem within the Tuscan Hills. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is planning to travel around Central Italy. :)
Rental Week: 11 Jun 2022
Pretty quiet location in very beautiful Tuscan surroundings; ideal for day trips to towns and countryside; very exciting for children exploring the area; clean swimming pool to relax after day trips; restaurant with a beautiful terrace; unfortunately no breakfast
Rental Week: 07 Jun 2022
Great location, beautiful and tranquil scenery. You need a car to access. Friendly and helpful staff and the apartments are full of charm and character. If nobody is at reception due to limited hours, very easy to contact via airbnb or leaving a note at reception as we did. They provide fans in hot weather, but don’t expect air con as this is an old castle. Be aware you need to buy own basics such as toilet roll(only 1 provided per bathroom), liquid soap, salt n pepper. Plenty of towels. All in all would stay again.
Rental Week: 04 Jun 2022
This location was really beautiful for our two families with together 4 kids. The staff is really friendly and polite. The restaurant located in the castle is really worth a visit!
As always for such rented homes - if you really plan to cook - take at least some good knifes, a good pan and maybe a water boiler with you - the rest is available.
Rental Week: 02 Jun 2022
4.5 stars. There is room for some general improvements - suggested ongoing clean up and refreshing of grounds. We were in the tower top floor and was not advised there were fans available - having them in the room upon arrival would have been perfect.
Rental Week: 01 Jun 2022
Traumhaft schönes Schloss in der Toskana. Eine solche Aussicht kennt man sonst nur aus Filmen. Die Kommunikation, check in und out sind zuvorkommend und einfach. Das dazugehörige Restaurant ist lecker und hat eine tolle Atmosphäre. leider öffnet die Bar erst ab 18 Uhr und es gibt auf dem Schloss keine Möglichkeit Getränke zu kaufen.
Rental Week: 29 May 2022
We really enjoyed our stay. The landscape is beautiful and so is the Castle. The Restaurant was delicious and we also enjoyed the pool.
We had an Apartment which did not really belong to the Castle but it was very nearby. It could have been a Bit cleaner (Couch in the Kitchen) and some Things were a Bit neglected. It would have been nice to have a mosquito net in front of every window without any holes in it.
And the matresses in the bed were way too soft. So the nights were not that comfortable (but this happened to us in other parts of Italy, too)
Rental Week: 28 May 2022
had a wonderful stay here as a solo traveller, the grounds and pool were just stunning, as was the castello! Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so friendly. The restaurant was delicious, I ate there most nights and would highly recommend. It’s the most wonderful place to switch off and relax.
Rental Week: 28 May 2022
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in der Unterkunft. Die Räumlichkeiten sind Geschmackssache. Wir mochten die besondere Atmosphäre aber auf andere mag das auch bedrückend wirken. Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig geschnitten und einfach eingerichtet. Wir hatten uns mehr von der Küche versprochen, in der nur das Nötigste vorhanden war und welche aus unserer Sicht nicht zum Kochen einlud. Die Gartenanlage mit Pool ist sehr schön und man hat einen tollen Blick über die Toskana. Für uns war die Übernachtung im Castello etwas ganz besonderes!
Rental Week: 26 May 2022
It was a amazing stay in this gorgeous castle in the Tuscany countryside, with a view on hills and vineyards !! The appartment itself (n18) was wonderful, with stone and wood all over the place. Absolutely recommended!!
Rental Week: 26 May 2022
Very cute place, as described and a unique way to experience Tuscany. We enjoyed the premises, the pool, the view, dinner at the domestic restaurant and vicinity to Firenze. Latest there you will have to face masses of tourists so this castle is a great calm hub to explore the region from. Two nearby villages offer shops, bakery, pharmacy for the basics. To have a car sure is recommendable. We thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this accommodation.
Rental Week: 22 May 2022
Extérieur incroyable, piscine très sympa. Idéal pour faire de belles photos. Bonne situation près d’une ville avec restaurants, supermarché, pharmacie. On est vite à Florence. Places pour se garer. Logement spacieux , il manque juste un micro ondes, car plaque de cuisson gaz, ce n’est pas simple à utiliser quand on a pas l’habitude. Personnel à l’écoute
Rental Week: 20 May 2022
We had a super time in Montegufoni - Villa Osbert with our extended family for a superb wedding weekend. The wall to wall sunshine and swimming pool were a real bonus.
The castle was magical by day and by night. The history of the castle is fascinating. We were very well looked after by staff the worked quietly in the background. Fabulous views at every turn.
The only downside was in our villa itself. Any negatives we have are all about the kitchen in our villa. A welcome pack of water, milk, tea/coffee to get us started would have been much appreciated. Also some washing up liquid or 2 dishwasher tablets would have made the stay more enjoyable. The sockets in the kitchen don't work. The microwave and toaster had to be moved to the floor in the main room. A dish cloth and more than one tea towel would be great please. The toaster in our villa needs to be replaced. Some light bulbs are also needed.
On the whole we did have a fantastic time and have been busy singing your praises to anyone who wants to listen.
Rental Week: 07 May 2022
We loved staying at this property. The setting is absolutely stunning, sitting on the castle patio overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills, sipping on a glass of wine cannot be beat. The staff is lovely. The apt is not the Ritz or the Four Seasons, but it is servicable. If you need anything, just ask at the office, they were always very helpful.
Rental Week: 30 Apr 2022
Don’t miss this gem. Such a place filled with ancient history and the area is well isolated so no noise. The apartment was old of course but very serviceable and all the three bathroom were modernized. Bed was excellent. The food is delicious regardless of some comments I had read from previous guests. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Hope to return soon. I have no negative comments what so ever except may be poor lighting in the kitchen / living area. But we didn’t do any cooking as we were on a Tuscany vacation.

Die Ferienwohnung war sehr gepflegt und sauber. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und schön. Es gibt auch ein sehr gutes Restaurant. Mit dem Auto erreicht man in einer halben Stunde einen Park and Ride - Parkplatz nach Florenz. Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Domizil.
Rental Week: 17 Apr 2022
We loved our stay! The castle is ca 30 min with car to florence, and is situated in beautiful hills in the Tuscany countryside. The castle has as lot of history and the gardens are extremely beautiful! BUT you have to understand that it is a very old building and not a modern comfortable luxury resort. The castle is a charming, special and very beautiful accommodation but it gets very cold at night and the rooms are rather dark and have old bathrooms,floors etc. This was no problem for us because we really enjoyed staying in a place with this much history and character. I read a lot of negative reviews criticizing this, so I just wanted to point it out for future guests, so that they are prepared, even tho for us this was no problem at all.
Rental Week: 01 Nov 2021
The rooms are clean. Wi-Fi did not work in the room. The restaurant in the castle was also closed. But we were given a list of restaurants in the area. You also need to pay for heating, 8 euros per day. You will learn this by the fact of eviction. In general, it is a very beautiful and interesting place.
Rental Week: 30 Oct 2021
La residenza storica è molto affascinante situata nei colli a circa mezz’ora da Firenze in una bellissima cornice di vigneti, uliveti e verde a perdita d’occhio. Il contesto si potrebbe valorizzare molto di più. La camera accogliente arredata in maniera molto sobria ma non mancava niente peccato il bagno molto molto piccolo senza finestra. Nel complesso per una breve permanenza in famiglia siamo stati bene.
Rental Week: 29 Oct 2021
Gentilezza, disponibilità, location stupenda. Il nostro appartamento era dotato di uno splendido camino e di un lavandino in pietra . I bellissimi pavimenti in cotto toscano d’epoca, l’arredamento in stile shabby, ogni particolare curato per rendere calda e confortevole l’atmosfera. La loggia privata, a cui si accedeva da una scala interna alla camera da letto, con vista sul cortile interno era davvero suggestiva. Il bagno moderno, funzionale. L’unica pecca, se dovessi trovare un difetto, è l’eccesso di calcare lasciato sul soffione della doccia. Abbiamo anche cenato al “Ristorantino”, cibo buono decisamente. Un posto incantevole.
Rental Week: 28 Oct 2021
Une très belle surprise, le château est magnifique avec un parc entretenu permettant une jolie balade plongée dans l’histoire…
Nous avons pu rencontrer et échanger avec le propriétaire dont la passion pour le lieu et son histoire est évidente : un moment de partage qui fut un vrai cadeau !
Nous avons séjourné dans la maison de 4 chambres à quelques pas du château et qui est bien agréable. Elle dispose notamment d’une cheminée que nous avons pu allumer (le bois était fourni) pour le plaisir de tous.
A présent, nous avons hâte de revenir et de découvrir les appartements du château…
La Toscane est un petit bijou d’histoire, de paysages, d’accueil et de gourmandise… dont il est difficile de se lasser !
Rental Week: 14 Oct 2021
We had a fabulous time at this castle. Note that it is remote, does not have amenities that you might expect at a hotel or air bnb. We found it VERY useful to have our own car, which I rented from Sicily by Car a the Florence airport for about $185euro for 4 days, including the upgraded insurance for Europe. COOP grocery is the closest normal grocery but there is also a small grocery down the hill in Baccaiano, about a 10 minute walk (no liquor). And there is a cute winery up the hill the other direction for take-out (no tastings currently due to covid). There are several fun and not expensive restaurants in every direction throughout the various towns. The castle does have wifi but it's a little spotty so I also used data when on site at times, and definitely for traveling about (Waze is the best phone app for driving around, even in Europe). Staff was friendly and helpful, but you really never saw them, nor needed them for anything. You're pretty much on your own. I would recommend also for larger groups....but again, plan your transportation situation bc taxis are prohibitively expensive. Best way to get into Florence BY FAR is by bus from Baccaiano right down the hill....again just a 10 minute walk. Bus schedules available in lobby area at castle. Sundays, the schedules are highly limited, so pay attention.
Rental Week: 07 Oct 2021
I just spent 6 days at Castle Montegufoni and it was a fabulous 5-star experience! You have to know It is not a hotel ( no room service) - it is truly a real castle, although has totally updated bathrooms.
ps. bring mosquito apartments, so you can also prepare your own things. (why? You're in Italy!!) I stayed in #22, a perfect apt for 2 that overlooks the main courtyard - I loved it. But you can also ask for an apt that overlooks the incredible landscape. There are also apts that aren't in the castle, but on the castle grounds- ask for what you want in size and location, there are choices!
The staff is friendly and helpful and can't do enough for you. They are also helpful in giving suggestions on places to go and see.
The food is clean, fresh from the area and both the food and wine was amazing.
My favorite part is the luscious landscapes you see from anywhere you look.
Walks / runs are something you will experience no where else. You can drive to the small towns and enjoy true Italian living with the locals.
There are interesting and fun vineyards to experience the locals wines, truffles, olive oil, and saffron.
Walk around the castle, the grounds are enormous, and check out all the unusual parts to the castle.
The reception staff isn't there all night, but you have a key to come and go.
Check the hours for the restaurant ( amazing!) , so you can plan when to eat there on the beautiful dining courtyard vs going out and exploring in the nearby nearby towns.
ps. bring mosquito lotion. I'm always chewed up - and I didn't get a single bite with mosquito lotion.
ENJOY- you will LOVE IT!
Rental Week: 07 Oct 2021
We had a wonderful 4 night stay for a wedding! The castle staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the views are fabulous!!. Everything was clean and neat. We loved overlooking the courtyard in our suite. The food was wonderful and was the right temperature even for the number of people we had dining. We were there in early October and it gets chilly in the evenings and overnight, but they don't turn the heat on until a little later. They had good blankets to keep us warm.
Rental Week: 29 Sep 2021
We stayed at Castello Montegufoni as part of our honeymoon. The location is nice, in the middle of the Tuscan countryside and the staff are really helpful and speak great English. The restaurant is amazing and as vegans, catered for us really well and we had a lovely evening meal which they set up for us away from everyone else. However a few things really let down this part of the trip for us as honeymooners. We found the room to be a lot darker than the images. There was one tiny window in the corner so you constantly needed the lights on. Felt like we were staying in a larder really, so didn't give us the romantic vibes we wanted at all. The place was fully booked so we couldn't move rooms, although the staff were understanding about it. As self-catering accommodation, take note there's no oven which limited some cooking options, no simple condements like salt, pepper, olive oil. Which would have been useful as you end up having to buy far too much in the shops for the sake of a few days, just to throw out at the end. The most important thing of note is there are LOADS of mosquitoes. We left Tuscany with at least 30+ bites on us and it really disrupted our sleep every night. We did notice a screen over the window but not one small enough to keep tiny mosquitoes out and it was left open when we arrived! I would heavily suggest the Poserelli Villas to invest in mosquito nets over the beds as it's not really something you'd think about coming to the Tuscan countryside for the first time. I'm sure if there had been another room available for us and we were prepared for the mosquitoes it may have been closer to what we were hoping. But on this occasion, the experience could have been better.

Schöne Lage, traumhaftes Schloss. Leider nicht genug gepflegt und die Wohnungen sehr abgewohnt. Leider auch viele Familien, von Ruhe am Pool keine Spur. Top Restaurant und nette Bedienung. Für zwei Tage mit leichtem Gepäck zu empfehlen

Sehr schönes altes Schloss, schöner Pool, großer Garten, der allerdings etwas gepflegter sein dürfte. Die Wohnung war sehr groß, allerdings dunkel und stickig und nur mäßig sauber. Sehr gutes Restaurant und sehr freundliches, hilfsbereites Personal.

Séjour (15j) dans appartement spacieux du château, traversant cour/jardin. Manque la climatisation (plus de 30°C) le soir à l'intérieur, manque les moustiquaires, cafetière, vaisselle sommaire dans kitchenette basique. Pourrait améliorer service de renseignement des choses à voir dans la région. Restaurant: service très bien, qualité de la nourriture médiocre.
Rental Week: 02 Aug 2021
Le cadre est de toute beauté. Il est agréable de voir que la piscine n'est pas surchargée et que l'on peut s'y reposer. Nous avons regretté l'absence de moustiquaires aux fenêtres et, dans ce lieu, les moustiques vous font vivre un enfer. Nous avions l'un des 3 appartements où les espaces extérieurs (table + fauteuils) sont quasiment côte à côte donc pas d'intimité (nous ne l'avons donc pas utilisé). Les autres appartements bénéficiaient d'un agencement mieux adapté pour profiter de l'extérieur.

A beautiful castle steeped in history and art with stunning views over the Tuscan hills. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This property is a dream for people looking for culture in a relaxed atmosphere.
Rental Week: 27 Jul 2021
The location is not only beautiful with the historic chateau but also ideal for sightseeing in Tuscany. We enjoyed our stay very much.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful.
Our only suggestion is to create a charging facilitation for electric cars since charging in Tuscany is not easy. It would be a great plus to charge overnight at the Chateau.
Rental Week: 22 Sep 2020
We loved the castel, location, environment, decoraties and the view!
There are a few things we missed: to bring our own toilet paper is a bit poor, basic household items like dish soap etc, some basic cooking items salt/pepper, sugar, water etc. And a 24/7 caretaker in the castel would be recommended. One night we were the only guests, the weather was thunderstorms and lightning all night, and the power went out. So is was dark. The emergency lights went on but was exhausted after about 30 minutes. It felt very uncomfortable.
Further we understand the reason why the restaurant was closed and less guests stayed at the castle, but we missed this very much!
Rental Week: 23 Aug 2020
Hmm, so I wasn't sure whether to go for 4 or 5 stars.
Local vineyard to go wine tasting (walking distance)
Close to Florence
Great swimming pool
Restaurant (didn't eat but wish I had)
Mosquitoes were terrible (anywhere outside any time of day you were at risk of biting). I did inquire and was informed that this was sadly down to lockdown and not being able to spray at the time. Without the mosquitoes, this would definitely have been a 5 star.
Dishwasher next to useless - out of salt and rinse aid.
You needed to buy your own bin bags, dishwasher tablets, soap, dish clothes & toilet paper. I'd strongly suggest offering a 1-off pack for this as it's a lot less painful.
The dining area at 1B isn't great. It's tucked in a corner and especially with the mosquitos, it's unusable. The upstairs room also has no curtain so we had to put tin foil up to stop the kids getting up at daybreak.
I guess every apartment has it's benefits and problems though and in general, a great time was had by all (even the mosquitoes).
Rental Week: 20 Aug 2020
Tolle Aussicht! Riesen Zimmer, extrem hohe Decken, tolle Wandgemälde....einfach besonders in einem Schloß zu schlafen. Ein toller Ausgangspunkt für Besichtigungen :-)

Magnifique propriété avec situation idéale pour visiter.
Logement correctement équipé avec cuisine fonctionnelle et literie comfortable - malheureusement, problème d'airco qui n'a pu être solutionné pendant notre séjour mais ventilateur mis à disposition
Bon à savoir : Présence importante de moustiques dans la région !

Bellissima struttura, curata e immersa nel verde con splendide viste sul circondario e una bella piscina. Personale molto cordiale. Purtroppo l’aria condizionata nel nostro appartamento non funzionava e non vi erano zampironi/zanzariere per proteggere gli ambienti dalle zanzare. Alla nostra segnalazione Lo staff ha comunque fatto il possibile per risolvere il problema procurando dei ventilatori sostitutivi.

Thank you for this amazing stay at montegufone castle! This was our honeymoon and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. Full of wonderful details, romantic gardens and stunning views on vineyards and the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. It is near by cultural treasures of Florence, San Gimignano and Siena. It was all perfect! Thank you again, Julia”

Only the bed was bad, we think it was from medieval times,springs were poking up. This was our second visit to the castle, same room and maybe same bed.
The rest of the accommodation was excellent. We stayed in the room over looking the garden and was beautiful to sit outside. Booking was easy, reception very helpful. Wi-Fi in the reception area for communication with family and uploading pictures was very good signal. Wi-fi also available in the restaurant and even a small spot in our apartment. Pool was clean and refreshing, grounds well kept. It is not a hotel, they do not have maids to clean and you provide your own toiletries. But that is all upfront when you book. It is a rustic castle, lots of stairs and no elevators. Highly recommend the stay.

Great location, with a great view on beautiful Toscana. We had the 1b appartment, so not in the main castle building, close to the nice and big enough swimming pool. The rooms are OK, good shower and bathrooms. Maybe not enough light. Also, there were some marriage events in the castle while we were there, so that the restaurant was closed on some evenings and there was a bit of noise from those events.

Booked this airbnb for a destination wedding, and I was very satisfied with this space. Very spacious and rustic with touches from IKEA and the receptionist was very accommodating and nice. It's a bit on the pricey side but it is at a castle so I guess it evens out. The receptionist provides you with bus schedule which was very helpful. The fan in my room wasn't working so I asked for a replacement which they did right away. Also, make sure to ask for the blow dryer at check-in as they're not in the rooms. Lastly, this space is beautiful but doesn't have AC so keep that in mind if you're booking in middle of the summer.

The castle is a lovely setting in Tuscany. We stayed in the Bastione apartment, which is large and has a lovely private garden sitting area. Be advised it also has a long, spiral staircase leading from the bedroom, to the bath, to the lower level kitchen. Anyone with mobility issues should avoid this apartment.
Rental Week: 05 Sep 2019
We stayed here a few nights for a wedding on the property and had a fabulous time! The staff were so nice and polite, the apartment was very spacious with a great patio, and the set up for the wedding was beautiful. The best part was that the views from the back garden are stunning! I would definitely recommend renting a car and coming to stay here.

Il Castello è molto caratteristico e in un’ottima posizione. Abbiamo trovato l’appartamento pulito e con tutto il necessario x viverci. personale reception gentile e disponibile. funzionale la piscina. nota negativa la presenza di molte zanzare e l’assenza di zanzariere e aria condizionata con relativa sofferenza notturna.

Après une petite mésaventure avec notre premier appartement (situé au milieu du parking... Et non "à proximité" ....Attention!), la réception a été très agréable a fait tout son possible pour trouver une solution. Nous avons donc intégré un autre appartement (La Torre) qui s'est révélé très agréable, grand et confortable).
Le site et le château sont magnifiques et la piscine agréable.
L'accueil et la communication sont très bons.
Attention aux moustiques l'été...
Rental Week: 10 Aug 2019
The eccentric shabby chic atmosphere of medieval castle not to restored But Just enought to be comfortable and pretty. Great Location for the lovers of old historic places with strong caracter. Excellent concept. The owner pays a nice tribute to the past and the memory of the last family that occupied IT. The english excentrics the Sitwells.
We DID not appreciate the Family with Kids occupaying the pool all day long in such a calm and meditative environment.
Rental Week: 09 Aug 2019
Our family of five stayed in apartment 18. This was on the second floor overlooking the courtyard. We had a fantastic stay at the castle. Check in was straight forward, we arrived at midday and were taken straight to our apartment. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful, as were all of the staff at the castle and in the restaurant and cafe. The apartment exceeded our expectations and was large enough for all of us. One small point would be to put a better fan in the living room as it was very hot in there at night for my daughter who slept in there.
The pool was fabulous and there were usually beds available even though we were there in August. We loved having a cafe/ bar and restaurant on site. We would thoroughly recommend staying here!
Rental Week: 05 Aug 2019
This was a dream stay. I traveled with my husband and our four kids. We all loved it. My teens loved all the photo opps in a castle surrounding by such beauty. My younger kids were mesmerized by the castle and couldn't get enough of the pool. My husband and I loved it all. The cafe was a treat. Best cappuccinos in Italy and the sweetest girl who runs it. There is just enough options for breakfast to not have to go into town. The room itself was VERY SPACIOUS and BEAUTIFUL. We went in early August, so it was a bit warm, but there are fans. SUCH A DELIGHTFUL STAY.
Rental Week: 05 Aug 2019
The place was absolutely amazing, very nice area and beautiful old castle.
Our huge apartment was quite unique especially the living room (galleria) was very beautiful. nice rooms with beautiful views and good bathrooms everything in romantic / rustic style. Nice terrasse.
However, some of the furniture was some worn and especially the kitchen and accessories there needed an update (Nice to know that there is no oven and the coffee maker was missing the jug). However, the staff were incredibly sweet to help and very welcoming.
The restaurant was fine too - very nice people there, but the barbeque night was a little sad with the food accessories.
The pool area and garden were very beautiful and relaxing.
Is nicely located (by car) compared to the exciting sights of Firentze, Livorno, Pisa, wine tasting, San giminone etc.
Would highly recommend it, but you should not expect a modern hotel but an atmospheric beautiful old castle you never forget.
Rental Week: 30 Jul 2019
This 12th century Castle in Tuscany is beautiful. As a family of 5 with 3 children, we very much enjoyed the beauty of the castle, the grounds and the pool! It's 30 mins from Florence, an hour from Pisa and a great location for exploring Tuscany
Rental Week: 05 Jul 2019
This place is amazing. What a great setting. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and my son wants to return here to get married! Heads up, If you are counting on WiFi while here to make travel plans you are going to have some trouble.
Rental Week: 02 Jul 2019
Beautiful property. Quiet, quaint, convenient. We didn't eat at the restaurant as we were given recommendations at other establishments as a more authentic, local experience.
+/- 40-minute drive to Florence. We drove to a tram station and parked the car and took the tram into the city to avoid parking/traffic in historic Florence.
We did have a few issues that are of note:
The front desk is only attended until 17:00 (5pm), so when we returned our first evening from a day in Florence to a broken A/C unit, the room was almost unbearable and the on-site maintenance man could do nothing. We slept in the heat and terrible bugs/mosquitos with no recourse but 2 small fans. Not great. And A/C costs extra.
You need to "reserve" the one washing machine that is on site. No dryer. The listing wasn't clear about that.
They do not have bikes onsite, they have a phone number for a bike company that can rent them to you (with a day's notice).
It was clean, comfortable. I'd go back, but I would plan differently if the description was a bit more clear.
Rental Week: 30 Jun 2019
absolutely beautiful. The location is divine and the apartments were great for our family holiday. A perfect central spot to visit Florence, Siena, Pisa and all the beautiful towns in the Tuscany region.
The apartments whilst clean and comfortable needed a few more things in the kitchen. The washing facilities were not great with one shared washing machine.
Rental Week: 30 Jun 2019
The unit we stayed in was beautiful and spacious. The people who were in the office were helpful and courteous. The food was delicious and everyone very friendly. Having a pool with that incredible view was quite a treat in the summer heat. There were many fans to combat the heat (though a few more wouldn't hurt).
Rental Week: 21 Jun 2019
Participating in a weddi g was a great experience and the castle is very interesting with many places to explore. It is nice to cool down in the pool and it is possible although sometimes a little difficult to get around with a stroller.
The experience would have been better though if the rooms had aircondition. Very difficult to sleep in 30 degrees at night. Although, the rooms have great space and the baths and toilets are very fine.
The restaurant at the castle is not worth it. Better to prepare food yourself or go to other restaurants in bearbejde towns or the hotel up the hill.
Rental Week: 20 Jun 2019
Staying at Castello di Montegufoni was a dream come true! The castle is amazing, there is so much to explore. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and have all the appliances needed for an enjoyable stay. We traveled with our two small children and we had everything we needed to feel like home. The staff at Montegufoni were very helpful. They gave us local tips, made dinner and wine tasting reservations, provided us with maps and directions on how to get to different towns around the area. We are already planning our return next year. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Rental Week: 20 May 2019
Lovely location outside of Florence in the Tuscany countryside. Very helpful manager and comfortable accommodations. Beautiful gardens. We enjoyed a great bike ride and meals nearby. Easy access into the city. Good value.
Rental Week: 16 May 2019
We had a fabulous stay at Castello Montegufoni. The castle is very authentic, but with lots of modern conveniences. The location is a great central point for exploring the beautiful Tuscan countryside and quaint villages and getting to Florence is pretty simple.
The staff are wonderful. The restaurant has a limited menu but has different specials in the evenings. Be aware that it is not open every night, but there are a few great restaurants nearby. We visited the Pizzeria at the bottom of the hill one evening and it was fantastic.
Rental Week: 02 Apr 2019
This is a beautiful, well-appointed hotel in a lovely historic castle.
We loved our tower apartment with its own balcony. The main terrace and surrounding gardens are very lovely.
WiFi In the room was weak, but it was OK downstairs and we didn’t really mind!
Rental Week: 27 Mar 2019
Beautiful grounds. A few things were not quite as clear as they could have been. Supposed to have cash for a deposit upon arrival. They did take a credit card which would have been fine but had a bit of difficulty finding an atm. Not a huge deal but just a heads up. There is a bus that runs from Florence but we were very happy we had a car. Overall we would stay again in a heartbeat
Rental Week: 13 Mar 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castillo di Montegufoni! The Valencia and Stefania were incredibly helpful and accommodating and the restaurant was fabulous. We ate in the restaurant three nights during our stay because it was that good! Our group stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment which was charming, clean and comfortable. The grounds are lovely and the castle is close to several very good wineries. I wish I could have stayed longer! I hope to come back next fall.
Rental Week: 30 Dec 2018
The apartment was perfect. The area and nature are amazing. We were 4 adults and 2 children. 3 bedrooms suits well for such a big company. We were suprised that heating costs additional money. It was not indicated in our reservation. And it was our first time when heating was included in the cost of apartment. The apartment is situated near by the castle. You can visit the castle while check-in and check-out. Anyway our stay was really nice.
Rental Week: 22 Oct 2018
Foi uma experiência unica e extraordinária. O Hotel é simplesmente incrível. Os quartos e banheiros confortáveis, novos. Fica próximo de todas as cidades na Toscana. Parabéns e com certeza em nosso retorno , ficaremos hospedados nesse hotel.
Rental Week: 18 Oct 2018
We had a great stay for the week in very spacious accommodations. It was a
bit difficult to find the entrance, no light or sign at the entrance. We requested a few items (coffee, wine, cheese, eggs, water, bread etc.) be stocked for our arrival which we found upon arrival (25 Euros fee) well worth it. We did have dinner in the restaurant which was very good. They are not open for breakfast or lunch. The grounds are lovely. We discovered random painted ceilings and statutes around the property that were amazing. This is close to many places, to the town of Lucca (highly would recommend the day trip) Florence and so many vineyards. I would recommend it!
Rental Week: 11 Oct 2018
WOW, WOW, WOW! You will pinch yourself when you walk into this room since it's so spectacular. It feels like a dream! Absolutely such a special place to stay and stunning accommodations! Didn't want to leave!!!

Montegufoni, a comfortable accommodation in a tranquil place close to Firenze and other attraction of Tuscany. We spent there one week in a charming scenery of the historical building and its peaceful surrounding.
Rental Week: 28 Sep 2018
A picture postcard location which you will not be disappointed with. Central location to all amenities and the Chianti wine region. Parking available as it does help to have a car as local shops are a short drive away. Huge apartment with everything you will need but there are approximately 40 stairs to the front door, so those with disabilities or the elderly be aware.

Bellissimo castello nelle colline toscane, ristorante molto buono con super staff, piscina bella nel giardino e servizio di "pranzo alla piscina" fantastico. Appartamento grande con bagno doccia bello, manca qualche coperto/detersivo/sedia nella cucina perchè sia perfetto. Campagna fantastica d'estate con i vigneti e ulivi !
Rental Week: 06 Aug 2018
The castle was incredible! Such a different experience. Don't expect a hotel, it is not a hotel. What you can expect is magnificent views, old school charm and a location that is central to good attractions. We will definitely be back to enjoy the pool, castle gardens and restaurant. Thanks for an amazing stay!
Rental Week: 03 Aug 2018
Excellentes vacances à Montegufoni, cadre somptueux, cohabitation harmonieuse avec les autres hôtes des lieux, accueil agréable, belle piscine. On recommande chaudement. Seul hic, le logement sous les toits était très chaud (pas de ventilateur) et l'équipement (vaisselle) un peu court.
Rental Week: 28 Jul 2018
A gorgeous setting And very historic place to stay. Well located for Florence and Siena. Lots to do in the area including cycling, restaurants and wineries. Friendly staff, good restaurant. A great place to spend a week. The website does say no cooking oil or salt and pepper provided. Worth taking small supply and washing up liquid with you or booking into the restaurant for your first night. Wonderful holiday. "
Rental Week: 30 May 2018
We rented a villa for a family reunion and enjoyed a fabulous holiday. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. The apartment was well equipped and the amenities much better than at a hotel for our group of 8. Such a lovely experience in the midst of Tuscany surrounded by million dollar views will be difficult to duplicate. The property os well taken care of and wandering in the garden leaves one dreaming of how many eyes viewed the beauty of it all in the past. We loved how the property was located, not far from a couple of small villages to acquire basic groceries and serve as a great base for farther excursions to Florence and Pisa. Even without daily maid service, we felt like we had an opportunity to leave like royals and absolutely loved every day!
Rental Week: 19 May 2018
Das Schloss ist sehr stilvoll, landschaftlich wunderschön gelegen und auch verkehrstechnisch gut angebunden (Florenz mit dem Bus erreichbar, kleine Einkaufsgelegenheiten auch zu Fuß). Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, Wohnung und Anlage sauber und gepflegt. Die Ausstattung in der Wohnung war eher einfach, bot aber alles Notwendige. Wir waren sehr zufrieden.

Rental Week: 18 Oct 2017
We loved our stay! A truly wonderful location and a very affordable price. The rooms are apartments, so do not forget to do a little "grocery shopping on the way in. We would recommend at least 7 days at this location to be able to visit Florence and enjoy the surrounding area. Ask the wonderful staff for suggestions and directions.
Rental Week: 14 Oct 2017
We (our family of five) had a very relaxing stay. We had a car to explore area: there are so many beautiful spots to explore. The huge living room with frescoed ceilings was fantastic and the Italian garden just outside was amazing. Our kids absolutely loved the use of the pool. Many thanks to Possarelli family for their ospitality.
Rental Week: 26 Aug 2017
We enjoyed very much our stay at Montegufoni. Stefania was really kind and we appreciated her hospitality. Very good dinners at Il Ristorantino. We stayed in the apartment Galleria for a week and it was a beautiful experience. During our stay we booked a wine tasting and we visited the Uffizi + Accademia. We highly recommend this place.
Rental Week: 26 Sep 2016
Wonderful experience at the castle. We really enjoyed our stay here and it was absolutely a highlight of our holiday. If you are staying here though, renting a car is a must. It was very difficult to get around anywhere. We did hire ebikes which was loads of fun, however a car would've been much better!
Rental Week: 06 Aug 2016
Better than expected.
The people managing this location were excellent with all the assistance you could ever require. Their maintenance man even rescued a valued ring that slipped off a finger and went down the drain, by taking apart the drain to retrieve it.
The food in the restaurant is exactly what you would expect from a restaurant in this area. We ate at many local places and all were top notch.
Our room (La Grotta) was even more spectacular than expected. Not only would I recommend this place, but I have since convinced some friends to stay here and also in the area since our experience was more than expected.

Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour en famille dans ce château. L'accueil est sympathique, l'endroit est magnifique, notre appartement (N°30) était spacieux, bien aménagé,très propre, décoré avec goût et la vue splendide. La piscine est un lieu agréable, le jardin qui l'entoure permet de trouver de l'ombre quand le soleil tape vraiment fort.
On trouve également sur place un restaurant et un bar, des terrasses, une buanderie, un espace wifi.
Idéalement situé pour visiter Sienne, Florence, Pise.

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable au château.
Le cadre est magnifique et reposant et la piscine agréable.
Notre villa était spacieuse.
Les salles de bains sont un peu étroites mais très propres.
Dommage que la climatisation ne soit pas prévue car il est impossible d'ouvrir les fenêtres à cause des moustiques.
La région est magnifique, à proximité de San Gimignano, Sienne et bien sûr Florence où il est très pratique de se rendre en bus.
Vous trouverez des commerces dans les villages de proximité, les commerçants sont très accueillants.

We went in April and the out of season service is minimal (no bar, restaurant, limited reception opening time). WIFI coverage should be improved and extended (ideally in the rooms). BUT this is a charming location, Giuseppe and the receptionist were very helpful, very authentic Tuscan feel about the place. It is not luxury, but an excellent place to relax and enjoy this beautiful area. We used to come to Montegufoni 30 years ago and we're glad to find it had not been spoiled.
Rental Week: 24 Oct 2015
We have a wonderful stay at the Castello, and will most certainly be back! The apartment was beautiful (a little bit cold - but the staff put heating on at our request!)

wonderful estate with a magnificent view, everything was perfect and we enjoyed our stay very much. pretty litte italian town (Montespertoli) very near (about 5 minutes by car). gives you the chance to feel like a nobelman visiting his/her summer palace for once in your life (just in case you have no castel of your own ;-)

my name is kaye parker and there was 6 in our party. oh my where to start from the mtime we arrived to the time we left our stay at montegufoni was awesome. the staff alone made the stay wonderful. our rooms were great and comfortable. the grounds were just breat taking, so well kept. we could not have ask for a better place to stay. the one nice thing its only 30 min. from florince for sightseeing, and the train to roam was right there. we would go back to montequfoni in a heartbeat. the last thing is we felt that for the cost of our rooms it maid it very afordable. this place was more than we could have wished for.
Rental Week: 27 Aug 2013
We loved it! Absolutely beautiful building and environment. Lovely and quiet and we often felt we were the only ones there, even by the pool, although it was busier at different times of the day. Guests were friend, discreet staff in the office were helpful and friendly. Very spacious rooms, all equipment we needed and clean. We booked at the last minute so didn't have a huge choice of rooms. This one was a little dark and we didn't really want to eat indoors, so we took our breakfast downstairs and outside. Would love to go here again.
Rental Week: 24 Aug 2013
We had an excellent time at Montegufoni! The grounds and views are beautiful and absolutely serene. The food at the restaurant was the best we had the whole trip and Salvo was an excellent server. Thank you for a great, relaxing trip.
Rental Week: 13 Aug 2013
Wonderful architecture and surrounding scenery. Recommend for those for whom climbing slopes and stairs is not an issue. Great for healthy folks - a bit strenuous for elderly or extremely unfit folks. Great staff, clean, pool is a plus in summer. Lack of A/C not an issue for us in August - great ventilation/breeze throughout evening. Low humidity in Tuscany and large high/low temp difference between day and night.
Rental Week: 03 Aug 2013
Très bel emplacement et environnement avec vue superbe sur la campagne de la Toscane. Proximité de Florence (1/2 heure). Logement très propre et agréable. Seul l'équipement du logement était juste (petit nombre de couverts, d'assiettes, de verres, poêles anti-adhésives dégradées). Accueil sympathique. Belle piscine mais très fréquentée l'après midi avec nombre insuffisant de transats. Au demeurant, nous avons passé un excellent séjour car l'ensemble était de bon niveau.

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!
Rental Week: 22 Jun 2013
Truly an experience that took our party of 4 back 5 centuries. The facilities are marvelous in that their reconstruction captures the artwork and thereby the essence of 15th and 16 century lifestyles in Tuscany. The introduction of modern facilities in no way counters the beauty of the castle, but on the contrary enhances the experience of today's contemporary traveler, who may just bicycle to the castle in order to fully breathe in the countryside, but upon arrival, would like to shower and dine at his/her convenience.
Rental Week: 10 Jun 2013
What a wonderful place to stay! Easy to get to many citiies, the bus to Florence worked well and was so close to the location. We would travel during the day and then spend time at the pool and relax. The views were amazing! The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed, very spacious and very clean. We slept well in the comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and nice. I did laundry one day and it was easy to do and convenient. The castle is amazing, beautiful and one of our favorite things about the trip. I would suggest it to anyone, including families with children that want to be in the tuscany area, great views and also away from the crowds. A small town is just down the hill with a bus stop, stores, coffee, etc. We loved our stay!

We have had a magnificent time with our stay at the Castle at Montegugoni . We rented one of the villas inside the castle for the month and had 4 of our children come and visit witn us for a week . The staff were lovely and very helpful . The restaurant on site was so handy for meals and very accommodating for when our family were there. The country side is beautiful and surroundings villages are very accessible from the castle with your car . There is plenty of information given to you by staff for all surrounding villages . It is only about 20 km from Florence and we made at least 8 visits there . We made trips from there to Rome , Assisi ,Cinque Terre, Pisa , San Giminano , Seina,and Arezzo . A lovely winery up the road from the Castle is fascinating and one of the most prestigious Italian wine makers Frescobaldi Family . I have no hesitation in recommending Castle Di Montegufoin to fellow travellers.

This property is situated in an idylic setting with lovely views. The castle is beautiful. The accommodation is very good, but access to the castle and some of the units is a bit challenging for someone with disabilities. Would definitely stay here again.

A location with style in an old mansion or castle. Very impressive and the apartment was spacious enough with everything as it should be. Only drawback was the checking in at only 5 pm and when we arrived half an hour early we still had to wait (other places were a little more flexible).
A very pleasant stay.
Rental Week: 14 Jul 2012
The Galleria appartment is huge, there is really no way to prepare yourself for the size of the living room/ball room. It occupies an entire wing of the castle. The team on site were very nice and accommodating. The castle is old and needs some more TLC . You can really tell the building is very very old. However the facilities are nice. Getting in there the only thing missing was the butler.... With an apartment this big you need one. The living room is 24 meters from one end to the other. Add 10-11m more before you hit the front door. No AC - but fans do the trick to keep you cool at night.
Rental Week: 14 Jul 2012
We had a really good time and the property we stayed in was excellent. The facilities were very good and a very nice relaxed atmosphere. Staying in the castle was a great experience however the sound proofing is not that great, however this is to be expected in such an old building - there are notices to keep volumes down between certain times 11pm - 8am.
Our biggest mistake was not preparing for Mosquitos...I would suggest that everyone going here buys a zapper before they go and plug in well before going to sleep...we made the silly mistake of letting a few in after our first night out and we suffered because of this for a few days.
Great weather, lots to do, many places to see - Siena is the best though in my opinion and only 45 mins away in a car.
One last thing, if you are going to rent a car, I would swerve trying to get a cheap deal and stick to a known company such as Europcar as you will incur many hidden charges and potentially not the car you ordered - a few people we met had the same issue.
With regards to the Villas / castle - highly recommended and great value for money...oh if you do go, when you come out of the resort, drive through Barccaiano, turn right and head along that road for about 3 minutes and you will find a lovely little restaurant on the right hand side - fantastic food and service!
Rental Week: 02 Jun 2012
I thought the entire experience was great. The castle was more beautiful than I thought it would be, and the location was perfect. Our apartment was great and just as it was described. We would definetely stay at the castle again. The only suggestion I would have would be to give extra towels to the apartments and warn about the mosquitos in the summer.
Rental Week: 29 Oct 2011
On the first morning the Tuscan sunrise streamed into our room and chided us to awake and take in the magnificient view - it was breathtaking! The rolling hills around the Castle Montegufoni over the course of the week changed glorious autumn colours. Our room, was perfectly comfortable - so much so we almost forgot to leave.
The Castle location enabled very easy jaunts around the Chianti countryside (use a GPS!!)
The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly.

The two bedroom cottage known as Montegufoni #32 worked very well for 2 mature adults and 2 grown granddaughters. There was plenty of space for privacy, as well as together time. We especially enjoyed the outside table and chairs, overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

The property is one of the most incredible places where we have stayed while we were in Italy with a very nice swimming pool and garden. It is very centraly situated and the very efficient and friendly Reception staff will give you lots of nearby places to visit and how to get there. The staff all speak very good English. Also try out the Restaurant as they make really nice food and the menu changes daily. Bring Mosquito repellent.

La residenza "bastione" si è rivelata un luogo affascinate e suggestivo ove tornare la sera dopo aver viaggiato durante il giorno per la magnifica Toscana. Splendido il contesto del castello, ottima l'organizzazione.

a wonderful destination and stay had in the Castle. In total there were 11 in the family who stayed in 4 different rooms (all which were terrific), and all agreed what a super time had been had by all.
The views, weather, swimming pool, locality, gardens and history of the place was just amazing, the restaurant was also excellent.
A total score of 10 / 10 was agreed by all for the trip and we will defintely return in the very near future.

Excellent location half an hour by car from Firenze old town. Beautiful old castle/place. Ample rooms, well kept, clean. Minimalistic kitchen and equipment (OK for breakfast and snack). Good restaurant with beautiful terrace. Ideal for resting combined with cultural and gastronomical escapades.

Prima uitvalbasis om de omgeving te bekijken. Voor zeven personen (en baby)wel wat aan de krappe kant maar de locatie en de omgeving maakt veel goed!
Het apartement bevind zich om de bovenste woonlaag en omdat er geen airco is kan het vrij warm worden.
Prachtige locatie met redelijk goed restaurant
Zwembad wat aan de krappe kant als er een aantal families met kinderen zijn.

We stayed at Castello di Montegufoni 4-11 July 2011. Everyone there was amazingly friendly and helpful! The reception folks gave excellent advice and were a great help on where to go, what to see, and how to get there -- they are real experts on the area. They were so very nice our entire stay, and they even loaned us 2 fans for use while we were there. The chef in their restaurant made us really feel like family. He came out to greet the guests every night. My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary there and he really made the celebration dinner special!
About the only complaint I can think of is no air conditioning, and bring bug spray since you'll have to leave the windows open at night.
In all, Montegufoni is beyond beautiful with an incredible location that's central to all of Tuscany! I would DEFINITELY recommend it to anyone!

We stayed at Montegufoni 4 for 5 nights in July and used it as a base to see all of Tuscany. I would say that it was an excellent location close to most of th cities we stayed. We went to Siena, San G., Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Montelpulciano. The location was great to visit all those locales. The people at the castle were friendly and very helpful and the restaurant on site served up great food with a great view. There was even a great restaurant at a small town less than 1.5 km walk from the castle. The rooms were big and comfortable too.
The only main complaint that I had is they make too much noise picking up the garbage too early in the morning and the pool was super chlorinated. (great pool but bring gogles for the kids)
As you can see all and all a great place, good value for the money and I would recomend this location to anyone.

Wir kannten das Castello schon aus früheren Jahren und fanden es unverändert schön. Der Pool ist gut gepflegt wie alles. Wir hatten ein App. außerhalb des Schlosses, aber mit wunderschöner Aussicht auf die toskanische Landschaft, so dass wir es jederzeit wieder buchen würden. Sowohl die Jugendlichen (3) als auch wir waren sehr zufrieden. Besonders angenehm ist, dass ein Bus praktisch von vor dem Haus (oder manche auch vom nächsten Ort, ca. 1 km) nach Florenz fährt, so dass man sich die nervige und teure Parkplatzsuche dort sparen kann. Das Personal war durchgehend sehr nett und zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.

My wife and I along with our two daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return without a second thought. Our apatment with two bedrooms, two baths and kitchen fit our needs prfectly. An ideal place from which to explore the country side. Dinners were varied and of high quality. Our waitperson, Olga, was extremely friendly and conscientious. The chef provide us with a special treat on our last night. We enjoyed sharing dinning with local residents as well. All staff members were professional and extremely helpful.

Great place. Very central to all of Tuscany sites. Will stay there again. Internet was free and fast. Wish the property or booking manager would have highlighted the fact that you should buy your own food for breakfast 'right away'. Between early closing and days off, places to buy things late in the day get few and far between. The staff were very helpful and kind. The restaurant chef was generous with portions and lemoncello.

We were pleasantly suprised by Montegufoni 4 and had the BEST time there. Its close proximity to town for supplies and the peace and quiet were great. The restaurant was superb. The Montegufoni red wine is EXCELLENT!!! We even asked if we could get some shipped back to Australia.The staff were more than helpful and we would return there any time at all. Rated 10/10

"The castle was absolutely amazing. They have a bus stop out the front which will take you to Florence for 10 euro return in 50 mins. The dinner was fabulous, cooked by Fabio, it was personal, delicious and something to remember. The staff there are very friendly helpful and relaxed. The pool is lovely and as we stayed in the Cardinals rooms, our rooms were palatial"

Just wanted to tell you and your staff what a marvelous time we had at your castle. The castle was a real jewel. We stayed in Montegufoni 9 and everything was wonderful. We loved Guisseppe, even though English was tough for him. Loved all your staff, the cook, receptionist etc.

We had such an amazing time! The castle was so wonderful and the staff
that we did come in contact with were all so great! We spent one
morning just walking the castle grounds; exploring and admiring the
beauty! Our room was wonderful! We only had to pay for heat the first
night, as there was no one to turn ours off when we arrived at 9:30pm.
The temperture in the room without the heat was perfect! We like the
We will definitely be returning to Italy. We would like to return to
Montegufoni. The surrounding areas were great! Everyone we ran into in
the cafes and coop's were so nice and welcoming.

We recently stayed at the Castello di Montegufoni, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. LeTizia and Giuseppe were wonderful at accomodating their guests. The property was clean and beautiful. The views were spectacular. Our apartment was everything we expected. We had more than enough space, and slept well in the quiet of the castle. The castle was an easy drive to Florence, Lucca, Siena, Pisa, San Gimagnano, the Chianti area, the coast, and other attractions. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone considering a vacation in the Tuscany region. Thank you for making our vacation a truly memorable Tuscan experience.

The apartment is beautiful and we loved our time there. We found the apartment quite dark inside and a little cold in September with its stone floors. I would suggest more lighting and more floor rugs for this time of year.
The apartment was perfectly clean and a joy to stay in. Lovely being so close to Florence and yet have such lovely views. Giuseppe and Simona were the only people we meet really and they were both lovely, especially Simona who wanted to be helpful all the time and her collegue who ran the bar on Sundays.

Propriété irréprochable par contre il est nécessaire d’apporter une attention particulière à l’équipement en vaisselle qui est un peu succinct, il faudrait vérifier le nombre d’éléments avant le début du séjour, (tasses, verres, couverts, et ustensiles de cuisines souvent insuffisants) .
Rental Week: 14 Jun 2008
The castle was a great place to vacation with friends. The rooms were interesting and so different that anything else we could have chosen! Montegufoni is near enough to Florence that it was an easy day trip, and we were so glad to not be staying in the city! The views from the castle are amazing. I would definitely recommend staying here!

We had a wonderful time at Castello Montegufoni. The building is absolutely superb, the garden and the pool area is fantastic and the view is beautiful. One night we had dinner at the castle's restaurant, which was also very nice and a good price as well. In the end of our stay I even bought a book about the castel's history. It is fascinating.

We were two middle-age couples that shared a two bedroom-two bath apartment. and we were delighted with the accomodation and hospitality. The reception people spoke english and were very helpful. It is a great location close to Florence, Siena, and Chianti area. Plenty to see around this location. We had a car and loved the countryside. We would definitely go back when we have the opportunity. Price is reasonable and fair.

We were staying at the Castle as part of a party for a wedding in the area so didn't pick to stay there as such. Our group was mixed in terms of ages including children and everyone fell in love with the place! We will definitely be going back.

The whole area is beautiful a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery. A great place to go to for artists. Also plenty to do and see. Italian people so friendly and helpful. I would recommend Castello Di Montefugoni wholeheartedly and have warm memories of how well we were looked after condsidering that there were 83 people in our wedding party.
