Castello di Montegufoni is an exclusive location to spend wonderful holidays in the heart of Chianti Region.
Dating back to the 12th century and restored in the 17th century by the noble family of Acciaioli, the Castle has a magnificent tower built on the model of the one of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
Montegufoni Castle is part of a large estate comprising vineyards and olive trees and is surrounded by the beautiful Chianti landscape. In the castle there are 39 apartments and a large garden with a nice swimming pool: the perfect spot to relax and have fun with your family and friends.
The Chianti Region is one of the most renowned charming area in Italy for its cultural, historical and enogastronomic traditions. This luxurious Castle offers to our guests incredible holiday experiences (on request) such as cooking lessons, event location, guided tours and more!
Distances from the villa: the small village of Montagnana V.P. with food shops 1 km, Montespertoli with all kinds of shops approx. 5 km, Florence 20 km, Pisa approx. 70 km.
A bus stop with busses to Florence is only a few meters from the castle away. Bikes and scooters for rent are available in Montespertoli.
At guests’ disposal: large and very charming terraced park furnished with garden furniture and table tennis, beautiful Italian gardens (dating back to the 18th century) with lemon trees and swimming-pool (12 x 6 m - open from 01/04 to 31/10). Reception open from 8.30 to 12.30 and from 14.30 to 18.30. The outbuildings of the castle as well were restored and turned into charming apartments. The castle is run by the Posarelli family. A nice restaurant offering nice recipes of the local Chianti tradition is open every night (from April to October except on Tuesdays). Laundry with shared washing-machine (€ 3,- / per washing). WI-FI internet connection available in some apartment, in the reception and restaurant area.
Extra services: on request possibility of renting a baby bed (€ 50,- / per week) and an extra bed (€ 100,- / per week) both payable locally.
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
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.
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.
We had a wonderful stay at Castello di Montegufoni! The stuff is super friendly & lovely. The Castello is just magnificent!! Perfect get away!
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.
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)
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.
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!
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!!
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.
Beautiful villa set in the Tuscan countryside! Restaurant is pretty good. Great for a quiet get away.
Amazing place! Beautiful Castello, You need a vehicle although a direct bus is coming from Florence. Restaurant has local organic food. Definitely to recommend :)
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
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.
Beautiful location & unique experience to stay in this castle. Only complaint was that the bar opend at six o'clock.
A beautiful place to stay. Incredible views and impressive building. You will need a car to make sure you can make the most of being in the beautiful Tuscan countryside!
Very nice place to stay, beautiful castle and surroundings. Appartment is clean and was very spacious.
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.
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.
Great location and a good restaurant with very helpful and friendly staff
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.
Very good accommodation, in an idyllic location in Tuscany!
A beautiful location right around the corner for Firenze! Good equipped apartments, really comfortable to stay in and explore the beautiful Tuscany. Unique location too :)
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.
Cosy historie place in pittoresqe surroundings. Higly recommendable.
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.
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.
Très bel endroit, calme, hormis le bruit des gens lors du passage dans la cour. 20 minutes de voiture de Florence et 1h de Pise.
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 !
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.
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!
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.
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.
Wunderschöne Lage naheliegend zu Florenz sehr idyllisch Super freundliches Personal im hoteleigenen Restaurant
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 schöne Location mit gutem Restaurant und ausgezeichnetem Ambiente.
Sehr aufmerksamer und freundlicher Service.
Ottimo soggiorno in un contesto suggestivo e con un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo
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.
Amazing place, amazing people working there, fantastic nature .. lots of unforgettable moments !!
Castello, piscina,giardini e vista meravigliosa. Ottima accoglienza da parte del personale e del ristorante interno. Posizione eccezionale, unico neo è l’appartamento un po’ troppo datato.
Charmant et typique, un séjour magnifique au cœur de la toscane.
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.
My family and I definitely enjoyed our stay at the Posarelli Villa. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and the location was wonderful.
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.
The place was amazing and the apartment too. Maybe a bit more or furniture for the kitchen and airfan would be perfect.
Thank you for this stay
The location was absolutely beautiful and the people were so so friendly and kind! ❤️
Tres beau château pour profiter le temps d’un séjour de la vie Toscane
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.
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.
Majestic castle in the toscanian landscape with a very nice staff
Ist was Besonderes
Das Ambiente mit dem Schloss war wirklich sehr schön, die Unterkunft selbst hätte noch besser instandgehalten und ausgestattet sein können.
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!
Castello immerso nel Chianti. Ottima posizione per girare le città e i castelli del territorio. Abbiamo utilizzato la piscina per rilassarci al rientro delle gite.
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).
Tolle Aussicht! Riesen Zimmer, extrem hohe Decken, tolle Wandgemälde....einfach besonders in einem Schloß zu schlafen. Ein toller Ausgangspunkt für Besichtigungen :-)
Viele Kinder am Pool, die ohne Rücksicht ins Wasser springen :-/ Keine Klimaanlage, aber man kommt auch ohne ganz gut klar.
Toller Schloss Fair, super nettes Personal, haben sich um unser Problem sehr schnell gekümmert
Seeblick ist ein weit übertriebener Begriff um ein Appartement ohne Balkon anzupreisen
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.
Stunning ancient and historical villa! Beautiful grounds and pool, the apartments are modern and facilities up to date. Our terrace had an amazing view!!
Enjoyable family weekend in Tuscany. The staff was very friendly and helpful!
With young children (ages 2 and 4) we had to be particularly careful that they didn’t hurt themselves or the contents of the villa.
“Diese einzigartige Unterkunft ist eine Reise wert!”
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”
The Castle is amazing! History buffs wont be disappointed in the charm of the Castle. Everyone is very helpful, staff was lovely and the location to other spots is easy and quick to get to.”
Otroligt fint slott med massa historia. Trevlig och hjälpsam personal. Nära till det mesta att se i vackra Toscana! Vi åkte med våra tre små barn som älskade att vara på Montegufoni.
Beautiful place with a great restaurant and amazing views. Very uncomfortable beds in our rooms, but other than that, we had a great stay
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.
Séjour très agréable. L’emplacement , le château , l’espace. La literie était moyenne
This was the best Airbnb I've ever stayed at! Honestly this is a hidden gem I would definitely come back!
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.
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.
Très bon accueil, maison impeccable confortable et agréable, le cadre est aussi magnifique
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...
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
Excellent location for exploring the Tuscany region.
Castle has a lot of heritage and plenty around the area to keep entertained
Supert for vår barnefamilie. Ren og ok utstyrt leilighet, bra svømmebasseng, hyggelig vertskap, veldig koselig kafe og restaurant med god mat. Vakre omgivelser, knallfint slott, helt topp!
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.
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.
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.
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).
Sehr interessante Location die viel Raum zur Entspannung bietet
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.
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!
Beautiful grounds in a gorgeous Tuscany countryside castle. We enjoyed the pool and exploring the cities of Siena and San Gimignano from the castle. Did not have WiFi in our 3 bedroom apartment
Incredible, would love to go back
Superb stay in an amazing location - stunning castle and great local recommendations. perfect stay!
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.
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.
Endroit magique et unique. Quel bel emplacement . WoW
"Nice quiet place to relax and have some quiet time in the Italian countryside. The staff are very helpful.
My family and I had an amazing stay in the Montegufoni 1b apartment. We're already planning our next visit.
Our group enjoyed our stay - lots of character in this property!
Wonderful place to stay. The location is incredible. Little bit chilly in April but very romantic, lovely staff.
You need a car.
Excellent!!! Authentic castle experience! Castle and grounds are beautiful and the entire staff is excellent! We will definitely recommend!
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!
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
Lugar muito agradável!
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.
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.
Très bon appartements
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.
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!
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!!!
Stunning room with incredible views of the Tuscan countryside!
Absolutely stunning room! It was so comfortable and elegant. Montegufoni is a dream come true. What an amazing and magical place to visit. I can't wait to come back again and spend more time here.
Montegufoni was our home for a week and the most fairytale setting for my son’s wedding. Everything was perfect—the accommodations wonderful and the food and service excellent. All around a place we all hope to return to. I can’t imag a more beautiful setting for a wedding.
Very enjoyable. Beautiful rooms, amazing fresco's, good facilities and a top notch restaurant below the castle in the old kitchen.
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.
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.
Wir sind begeistert, mit welchem großen Engagement Sie und Ihr Team das fast tausend Jahre alte Schloss erfolgreich erhalten. Das Schloss atmet seine lange Geschichte und hinterlässt unvergeßliche Eindrücke von seiner architektonischen Schönheit.
We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the Castle and our Villa Accioli provided all the space and facilities needed for our guests. The Restaurant was also superb and we enjoyed every meal there.
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 !
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!
Beautiful setting, nice staff, comfortable apartment!
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.
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. "
Excellent séjour en famille au Château de Montegufoni sItué à proximité de Florence et des autres sites. Piscine très agréable. Appartement spacieux. Restaurant testé et approuvé
Mooi gerenoveerd appartement, net buiten het kasteel. Wij hebben 2 dagen genoten van het verblijf tijdens ons 50-jarig huwelijksfeest.
Bel appartamento fuori il castello!
Zag er netjes en schoon uit.
Fijn appartement aan de buitenkant van het kasteel.
Castle is in beautiful setting with stunning views. It was a pleasure to revisit for the third time such a historic building.
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!
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.
Die Anlage ist großartig, das Zimmer ist sehr spatanisch eingerichtet aber sehr urig schön (etwas hellhörig). Die Lage ist gut. Wir können unser Zimmer weiterempfehlen.
I spent three days with my friends in the excellent location -Castello di Montegufoni. The atmosphere of antiquity and the beautiful scenery. This place is worth visiting.
My family stayed at Montegufoni for 5 days in May and it was excellent! The apartment was spacious and comfortable, and the staff were helpful. The food at the restaurant was wonderful too. I would stay here again! Such a beautiful location and lovely old castle.
le cadre général est très agréable et permet de découvrir la Toscane dans ses diverses facettes
This location is spectacular! It's wonderful to stay in such a historically important and impressive castle. Our apt was well appointed and the staff is very friendly and on hand. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the castle. Just wonderful.
Fue la mejor parte de nuestra estancia en Italia. Te puedes mover fácilmente en toda la Toscana. Nos sentimos en casa.
The apartment was panoramic, spacious and very clean. A perfect base to explore the surrounding area. The staff was very helpful. Highly recommended!
Great location in a wonderful part of Italy. Easy to reach Florence and Siena by car. Good market and restaurant in Montespertoli.
Stefania and Paola were very helpful.
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.
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.
What a beautiful place to kick back and enjoy Italy! Everyone was so nice and helpful and couldn't have asked for a better location.
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.
Eine sehr reizvolle Unterkunft (La Grotta-Appartement) in toller, zentraler Lage mit ein paar kleinen Schönheitsfehlern.
A wonderful place with a magical atmosphere, pleasant people. Restaurant is great, the dinner was fantastic.
A wonderful place with a magical atmosphere, pleasant people. Restaurant is great, the dinner was fantastic.
Montegufoni is an amazing placce to stay. Everything about it is amazing, the property , the location, countryside. We had a wonderful time and booked again for next year before leaving.
Beautiful spot - everything was as expected and the hospitality was outstanding. Location is perfect for touring around the Florence area.
Appartement très grand, fonctionnel et très agréable.
Location tranquilla e romantica a due passi dalle principali città.
Appartamento spazioso anche per un gruppo di 8 persone e ben attrezzato; personale disponibile.
Splendida struttura in ottima posizione. Servizi ottimi e massima cortesia e disponibilità.
Le logement est agréable, bien situé et bien équipé, le cadre est magnifique. Seul bémol, au mois d'avril, il y faisait froid.
absolutely fantastic mansion in tuscany hills. romantic hideaway, great views with pool, generous space and a parking area
Wonderful location, excellent construction, impeccable organization, spotless spaces.
Luogo bellissimo: da non perdere!
Sehr romantisch, nettes Personal traumhaft schön gelegen
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!
Unique location to explore
Tuscany and Firenze area, charming property
Lovely location, plenty of parking, near to Florence, within reasonable drive of Pisa. Good restaurant.
Very nice villa with enough room for a larger group. Castle amenities were a big plus - concierge services, good food at the restaurant.
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.
The site is very nice with a spectacular, very calm and very well placed paisaja
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.
Vielen Dank für den wundervollen Urlaub im Schloss Montegufoni. Die Zimmer waren gross gut ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Der Charme des Gebäudes erhöht die Erholung noch. Im Sommer ist der Pool sehr gut zu nutzen.
Vielen Dank für die tollen Tage .
Beautiful location, perfect appartment, friendly reception, the pool is great and the restaurant is wonderful and a great extra as well.
Fantastic setting, appartment is magnificient and out of this world (La Galleria).We will come back.
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.
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!)
Staff were wonderful, grounds were beautiful, meals were delicious. 10/10!
It was a worth remembering experience living in a, so nicely preserved, castello. The apartment was really comfortable and nicely decorated.we really enjoyed every moment in the balcony, admiring the picturesque tuscanian scenery. The pool and exploring the castle was a real joy for our kid.
Très bon accueil et un logement vraiment à la hauteur de nos attentes. Le chateau est très sympa, la situation en Toscane permet de rayonner facilement dans toute cette magnifique région.
Sjarmerende historisk slott. Fine omgivelser og fin atmosfære
Beautiful scenery and atmosphere. Apartments of high standard. Internet not so good. Food in restaurant was ok. Good service.
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 ;-)
Very nice place. Our apartment was well maintained. Many mosquitos however but this would probably have been the case everywhere else in Tuscany.
Beautiful surroundings, local facilities could need slightly, improvements, apartment clean and nice, aircon should be included in rental fee
Les personnels de l'accueil et du restaurant nous ont très bien reçu et informé. Les infrastructures sont très bien entretenues, propres et le site est très calme et bien situé pour visiter le Chianti. Merci à tout le personnel pour sa gentillesse.
Lovely experience staying in castle, able to catch bus to Florence. Room felt damp.
Room was comfortable and lots of space. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant was great.
Frendly, relaxing and wery Nice
My rooms, more like a flat, with kitchen, drawingroom, bedroom with excellent bed, bathroom next to bedrooom. hot and cold water, shower.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nous avons adoré ce lieu, et nous avons passé d'excellente vacances. Nous recommandons a tous de venir séjour dans ce somptueux château. Nous reviendrons certainement pour continuer à profiter de cette merveilleuse région qu'est la Toscane.
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
Наша семья провела незабываемые 3 недели в замке Монтегуфони(Галерея).Галерея это огромные апартаменты с восхитительными видами на холмы Тосканы. Безупречная чистота и обслуживание.Близость ко всем достопримечательностям Тосканы,делают замок необыкновенно привлекательным.Удивительный комфорт и уют в спальнях на верхних этажах и бесподобная галерея с потрясающими фресками на первом.Теплый чистый бассейн ,окруженный живой изгородью,круглосуточный wi-fi на рецепшен,хороший ресторан,близость автобусной остановки(50 метров от замка)все это создает ощущение комфортного прибывания. Монтегуфони это настоящая итальянская сказка.
Ein wunderbares Anwesen, eine herrliche Wohnung, ein schönes Umland, überaus freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal, fast ausschließlich angenehme und kultivierte Gäste.
Aber eine einzige rücksichtslose ...... Familie reicht, um das alles zu zerstören.
Wie überall in Europa.
Wir sind drei Tage früher als geplant abgereist und werden nur wiederkommen, wenn uns garantiert werden kann, dass diese Sorte von Gästen nicht mehr angenommen wird.
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!
We will come at the first opportunity. Really enjoyed the castle & the surrounding countryside.
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.
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!
Steve B - Lyon, France
L'endroit idéale pour découvrir la Toscane. Idéalement situé dans le triangle Firenze- Pisa- Siena. Des vues superbes sur les vignobles et oliviers avoisinants ainsi que sur les autres châteaux perchés sur les collines. Nous avons hâte d'y retourner.
This was a wonderful place if you want a true Italian experience. It's not a hotel! It's quiet and quant. There are no amenities but if you want to feel the "Italian" experience, it's great. The staff is very accomadating.
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.
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.
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!
The castle if definitely worth a visit. Great base for visiting toscany. Hotel comfort, but private and historik feeling. Do not expect 24h hotel reception, the castle rents out apartments.
Bon rapport qualité/prix
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.
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.
Would recommend highly!! (Kristine, Anchorage; Connie, Alberqueque; Karen, Canberra)
Die Burg Montefugoni ist wunderschön, einzigartige Atmosphäre und traumhafter Ausblick über die Landschaft.
Personal total freundlich und angenehm!
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.
Antonio Vicenza (Italia)
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.
Very nice ambience, very recommendable for a relaxing stay (even with young children). It's just a bit on the expensive side; also check whether faded elegance is your piece of cake.
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) .
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!
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié nos vacances en Italie. Les points positifs de notre séjour chez vous sont la qualité de l'accueil et des lieux.
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.
