Il Castagno is an absolute delight! We loved our stay outside of Siena. It was so peaceful, and the scenery is so beautiful that it cannot be beat. We went into Siena for a day, and it was very easy to get to. We would recommend that you stay at this beautiful agriturismo a little outside of the city. When we showed up, we were immediately greeted by every member of the staff who was very helpful. We decided to take the cooking class with Sami. If you're debating a cooking class - do it! It was so fun. We laughed with Sami & Francisco for almost two hours as we learned how to prepare pasta, chicken cacciatore and tiramisu. We even had some wine to drink while we learned how to cook. Really, life can't get much better than that. Thanks to all for a memorable stay! It was a highlight of our trip!

Just Perfect. This a picture perfect Tuscany location. The pool is gorgeous, day beds are excellent. The restaurant was excellent for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was lovely. I cannot recommend this Il Castagno more. Anna our host had some excellent tips and the restaurant she recommended for dinner was our best meal on our whole trip of Italy. this stay made our trip amazing.

We could not have been happier with our host and the staff here - this place is incredible! GREAT location! Everyone is extremely kind and helpful and it's clear they want to make your holiday better than you could ask for. This suite is beautiful and cozy, the breakfast was the best we've had on vacation, the grounds are gorgeous - we will definitely be back in the Summer to take advantage of the pool! Thanks for everything, Ana!

Anna - our host and manager was amazing and most welcoming. When arriving to the property she came out to greet us at our car, and simply said " you must be ....". I'm in the restaurant & hospitality business and I've never been greeted so sincerely as by Anna. The facility is incredibly designed, constructed and maintained. The views rival postcard-like images, spectacular in every way. And these were the views from our suite window. All week we'd see people pull off the road to take pictures of both the resort and the views enjoyed by us staying at the resort. The wait staff were all so comfortable and accommodating. The chef was a master and delivered dinners that competed with the finest restaurants in the area. I only hope we can return and soon. Thank you Anna and your entire staff, for your incredible service and for providing a restful and rewarding vacation to amazing Tuscany.

Just returned from Il Castagno and can't say enough about this place! Only nervous that as the speechless reviews pile up, we won't be able to reserve on our next return to Tuscany! If you're looking for the perfect Tuscan experience in the countryside and a perfectly situated spot to explore the rest of Chianti (hike from Radda to Volpaia was the highlight of our trip), stop the endless googling, this is it! Ana is the consummate host & Francesco and Sammy run the kitchen like its your own private dining room (which it virtually is). We spent the first night drinking bottle after bottle of Il Castagno's own fabulous reserve wines (which were a bargain) with super friendly other guests. The place looks exactly like the beautiful pictures and is a real gem! Hope to return soon!
