Words cannot explain how magical this place is. For the past four years we've enjoyed all that Castellare has to offer and are looking forward to another visit this summer. You couldn't wish for a better location and accommodation. The pool is a hit with the kids, the surrounds are beautiful and it is very easy to get into the... More

We have been coming here annually for about 7 years. All seasons. It is special. If you choose to stay here you will need a car. Also if you particularly like walking along way-marked tracks and/or simply relaxing with a book, then it is a particularly good haven to spend a few days.

Castellare and its people is truly amazing. I still think about the 6 week holiday my daughter and I took together in March 2012. The spring had just arrived and Castellare was absolutely brimming with beauty. Catina and her family are absolutely wonderful and we remain in contact today. Everything about the rustic charm is magnificent. I cannot thank Catina... More

We stayed in Castellare in June 2013. It was by far the most magical holiday we have had with our children. From meeting Catina we just knew the love she had for this place and how she wanted you to enjoy your stay. The house we stayed in was the Staletta. It was tastefully decorated and just felt like home... More

We had booked to stay in this place, but two days before we were scheduled to arrive, Catina(the owner) called us and warned us about an impending snowstorm which would have made access to the place difficult. Very kindly, she even looked for an alternate accomodation and helped us make the booking as well. We are very much appreciative of... More

My husband and myself stayed at Castellare in September, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Stalleta house, a one bedroomed property with sitting room/kitchenette, bedroom and spacious bathroom. There was a satellite TV (limited english channels) and a DVD player (no DVDs so bring your own). The setting was beautifully quiet, high up in the Tuscan hills.... More

My fiance and I stayed for a week in Castellare this November. I was a bit worried when picking the place, that it could be too remote and we might be a bit bored, but there was no need for that at all. From the very first email from Catina (the owner and a fantastic host) I knew we will... More

Castellare is a remote place locate about 25 minutes drive by car from Firenze. The place is dated back to the middle ages and run by Catina and her family. Catina is a perfect host. She loves people and it shows in the way she welcomes her guests. The place itself is a very big ecological farm and Catina's husbend... More
