We had a wonderful stay at il castagno. Our host Anna was very friendly and accommodating. We had a very spacious and clean room overlooking the swimming pool on one side and the tuscan countryside on the other. Breakfasts were delicious and the staff were super friendly! It was such a homely atmosphere that we didn't want to leave. The only issue we had was finding the house with a gps. We got lost a couple of times! Thank you Anna and the team for making our honeymoon extra special!
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!
Our stay at Il Castagno this past June was absolutely amazing. Everything from the views, the room, the service, and food are spectacular. The rooms were incredibly comfortable and clean, the pool was delightfully fresh, the grounds are stunning. We were allowed to roam through the vineyards as much as we wanted. The breakfast was wonderful and included delicious cappuccinos as well. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the days that we were there (Wednesday), but we managed to get in a cooking class with Sammie and Francesco. Sammie is a great chef and it was a ton of fun. I'm not sure for 50 euros we did a lot of cooking (just Tiramisu and a few appies), but the food tasted fantastic, especially the entrees Sammie cooked, and we sure had plenty of delicious wine. Ana is fantastic as well and had great recommendations for exploring the area. Overall, it as an incredible stay and we wish we had booked longer. You will completely love your stay here.
This place was absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Ginevra was on site and available any time day or night. Very helpful with directions and activities.
The room was spacious, clean and more like an Italian Villa than a farmhouse.
Was so lovely-we did not want to leave. Already planning our trip back!!!
Our stay here was truly over the top -- perfection. We had a view of the pool and the tuscan hillside. The rooms are nothing short of a 5-start hotel with luxury and detail. From the marble bath to the linens in the bedroom. What we didn't know was that we would also be able to enjoy their own fabulous wine and incredible dinners. Everything was fresh and special. We were greeted at our morning breakfast, which was included and fabulous, with a rose on the table. After only two days, I felt like I could stay another week or two. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer, but we will definitely return.
