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 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

Cheti and the staff were wonderful! They were helpful and knowledgable and this enabled us to plan our time and get the most out of the beautiful, historic countryside.
