It was a beautiful medieval castle with wonderful surroundings, but if you are planning to visit siena, you'll need a car to get to the downtown. The rooms were lovely and spacious with a kitchenette. My only complaint is that the check out was at 10 at the owner's home which is 5to 7mn away.so you have to already be... More

This was at one time a castle. Or large lookout building. Now however it is a large stone building that has been converted into multiple (20+) apartments. You are renting a bedroom/bathroom inside an apartment. The kitchen(tiny) and dining room/entry are shared by the the 3 bedrooms. Pros: -Authentically old, some of the stones on the building go back to... More

It's a real castle on the top of the hill, so you should have own car to get it. There's parking lot under the wall of the castle. The room is big, it has a fridge with mini-bar with very moderate prices. The bathroom is well-equipped.The kitchen is common for some rooms. We had the upper room, so enjoyed by... More

This is my first time ever writing a review, because this place and the people running it were so charming I just had to share. My boyfriend and I had been traveling a couple weeks already a little through Spain and then Italy. It felt like everyone we had come across were slightly rude and uninterested in us and never...

Do not stay in room number 2. It has a very small window close to the ceiling. Not enough fresh air at night. On Sep.24 we couldn't not sleep at night without opening the door of our room into a hall that was shared by two other rooms. Other two rooms had big regular (not close to the ceiling) windows...

What a brilliant idea, a medieval castle converted into self-catering units! It is very well located for discovering Tuscany and you don’t have any parking issues as you might have staying inside city boundaries. However do take note of the stairs that lead up to the castle, there are no elevators, this is a historic site. But the view from... More

Our stay at Castello di Monteliscai, built in the 1100's, was magical. Aside from having to climb what seemed like a million steps to the very top room in the tower, where we stayed five nights, everything about our stay in this castello was amazing. The view from the window in the tower was more beautiful than anything we could... More

We Found the castle by signage and a bit of luck, the kind owner drove to meet us and we followed her to the agriturismo to fill out paperwork and enjoy a celebratory couple of glasses of their own vin santo. Daughter and father had good recommendation on where to eat and provided map and good directions to city. Our... More

This place is totally misrepresented on any website. Please note that the long staircase in order just to enter is in very bad shape and very difficult to ascend with luggage or in the evening. The place has a dirty feel to it. Worst of all, the owners are rude and inhospitable. Go elsewhere!

Perfectly secluded............whilst still within easy taxi distance of Siena. The owners incredibly friendly with welcoming drink (or two)...made sure we were well settled in. Had the spacious 11th Century 'Tower' room with it's stunning views. A Satnav (or taxi) essential for finding.........but worth the effort. Eleanor and her mother very welcoming hosts !!
