We just returned from a wedding event at Modanello. The place is down a dirt road off the highway between Bettole and Siena. We were lodged in a cluster of buildings about 1 KM from the main castle. The rooms were basic but large without aircondioning. The wedding accommodations were fine, as was the food. The problem is that was... More

It not hard to rate Castello de Modanello excellent! Even for a Scandinavia - we don't hand out top grades easily! My wife, 3 children and I, will be going to Modanella for the 10th time this year. My son have celebrated every single birthday - except his first - there in July, and our 17 year old teenager talks... More

My husband and I held our wedding at Castello di Modanella last month and we can’t recommend the place highly enough. We had an absolutely fantastic experience, not only with the day itself, but the whole run up to our big day was made so easy, with such a dedicated team helping us every step of the way. As a...

The apartments are very rustic and all rooms are a very good size and overall value for money. If you are seeking luxury then these apartments are not for you. We loved these apartments for a family holiday and the scenery is beautiful. The best part of Castello di Modanella is the food, we ate in the restaurant a few... More

My husband and I got married at Castello di Modanella in June 2012 and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Fabrizio and his team did a fantastic job of making our wedding a day we’ll never forget. Special mention has to go to Beatrice for all of her help in planning the logistics of the wedding in the...

The Castello Di Modanello is a bit of an anomaly. Perched midway a Tuscan hillside, 30 minutes drive from Sienna, Arrezo or Montelpulciano. It is approached via a rather bumpy 4 mile stony road. When you get to the entrance you are barred by a huge wooden door. You ring the bell and a distant bell rings loudly like a... More

Just a couple of weeks after my last review of Modanella we were fortunate enough to return and we didn't want to come home! Please ignore the reviews that this place is not for families as it is. It's not if you don't have a car though BUT why wouldn't you want a car here when it is the perfect... More

I absolutely loved, loved, loved Modanella! Having booked there for 5 nights as a wedding guest I expected it to be beautiful, but I really didn't imagine it would be as perfect as it was. If you are after a traditional, rustic setting that captures the essence of Tuscany then this is your place. It is quite clear from the... More

September will our 3rd visit to Modanella. We chose Modanella for several reasons. It is central to and no more than 1 hour by car to almost all of Tuscany. When a previous reviewer stated that one needed an auto, at most agriturismo in Tuscany one needs a car. In previous trips with my Italian young cousins we have seen... More
