We stayed in appartment Guardialo for 2 weeks. The appartment was not very clean and there was always something like a sewage smell. The toilet is located in a very small area, and people taller than 1m80, can hardly sit on it, because their knees are hitting the opposite wall. Not a pleasant situation. Several appartments are located in the... More

We arrived, with around 40 guests at Il Castagno for our wedding during July 2014. We hired the main villa (9 bedrooms, sleeps 18 + small children / babies) and 5 apartments, varying in size. The property is set in fantastic grounds with truly breath-taking views over the Tuscan countryside. The properties are well spaced out with 2 large pools,... More

We spent 3 days at Il Castagno and loved both the location and the property. Situated in the heart of the region it allowed us to get to San Giminagno, Volterra, and Firenze very easily for day trips around the region. The property is beautiful and Agnese was very accommodating. I would have liked to have more time to just... More

We had our wedding in Il Castagno 8 years ago and we returned last week with our little boy. So it was an emotional experience for both of us. It was both comforting and disconcerting to see that everything was as before, nothing had changed. We were well looked after by Agnes and the lovely caretaker who helped us out... More

Each house had complimentary red and white wine, with information leaflets and a welcome note. Our first night was a pizza night with 35 guests gatherered in the huntsman cottage.... More

We stayed here for four days for a real Tuscany wedding, this was the venue chosen by the wedding planner and it was just perfect. All the accomodation is within original buildings all with different amenities, some shared kitchens and others had their own patios, all were of a good standard and yes not bang up to date with decor...

We stayed here for 2 nights and looked around it as a choice of wedding venue. The villa grounds are nice (there are better out there....we viewed 12 similar properties as potential venues!!!), the pool area is great, and there is certainly lots of grounds to stroll, with the lake being a nice touch. There is an impressive driveway and... More

I recently got married at Il Castagno and cannot praise the place enough! We hired the villa with all the surround cottages for a group of 65 adults plus 4 babies and it was simply fantastic! Chiara was brilliant and could not help out enough. The grounds and surrounding area are beautiful and there is even a lake onsite. I... More
