One of our best holidays ever. Our first time in Tuscany and we were lucky enough to choose Agriturismo Il Castagnolino. From the first welcome of the owners Carmela and Ivan to the last tearful goodbye everything was perfect. The location was ideal with views over the fields of Tuscany. Our room was large, airy, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts... More

It is a pleasure to know that our guests have a memory of their vacation so nice to us. We consider our farm house where welcome friends and share with them intense moments in the outdoors. Thanks and hope to see you again More

We stayed for five nights in June and had a lovely relaxing break during a hectic and hot 3000km car tour in our MX5 . The property had a rustic charm in a great location with fantastic views. The private parking behind locked gates was perfect for us and you even get your own remote to open the automatic gates.... More

If you look for something QUIET - here you are absolutely at the right place. No any kind of noise. Very familiar with few rooms only. Eat also there, everything is cooked by Carmela, the owner - no words could express how delicious the food is. Defenitely a place to return. Thanks to Carmela and Ivan

The property is quaint and offers a rustic glimpse back in time. Carmela is very helpful and wants to make you comfortable. I concur that having one of the evening meals is highly recommended. She is an outstanding cook and sets a romantic ambience for you to enjoy it in.

We were greeted with a very warm hospitality from Carmela and Ivan. We enjoyed a couple of delicious diners, home cooked by Carmela and accompanied by some excellent selection of wines made by her husband. All of this sitting quietly on the hill side overlooking a whole valley! You wake up with a smile, not just because of the sun,... More

We did not stay here, but we ate lunch here. It was only our family at the farm and I felt like we were just going to a friend's house for lunch. We ate outside with an incredible view. We had wonderful meals throughout our 2 week stay in Italy, but this was my favorite. The saffron tortellini, the onion... More
