I will start with a bit of background and explaining what brought me to Villa Montecastello. My brother was getting married to an Australian woman and had booked the whole villa for a week to fit approx. 15 people of each side of the family. My sister-in-law (bride-to-be) had booked this accomodation from across of the world in Australia, without... More

A group of family and friends converged on Jens' place in mid-December for holiday. The villa is lovely: well decorated, plenty of bathrooms, nice kitchen for large family-style cooking, common rooms for socializing. The views from the villa are spectacular and the location is awesome for day trips around Tuscany especially Siena and San Gimignano . Jens offers cooking classes,... More

We had a big group of friends that basically took over the place in early October. We had a blast! Jens is the owner and has carefully rebuilt then 1,000 year old villa over the past 20 years. The highlights are the view, the food and the atmosphere. We had several meals there including amazing wood-fired oven pizza with (Villa... More

This was my first trip to Italy and I know there will be many more to follow. We booked the trip because I was interested in taking a week long cooking class at the Villa with a chef from a large USA city. The chef was unable teach the class, however, I still wanted to take the class and inquired... More

This place is magical! It is a short drive from Sienna (we used our GPS) and once making the turning onto the road of the Villa, it is the second castle, not the first that you arrive at. Talk about remote!! We only stayed here one night but we were upgraded on arrival to a larger room that was absolutely... More

This was truly one of our best trips ever. We stayed at Villa Montecastello with a group of 11 adults and 2 children. I worked with Jens for many months planning our stay and he made the process simple. He responded to my emails quickly and was very accommodating to my many requests. We took over the villa during our... More

We recently had a large group event at Villa Montecastello and everyone the entire time kept raving about the place. I had in mind that this might be an older place which was rough around the edges. Wow was I wrong. I am a physician by trade but do a lot of woodworking and home improvement projects. This venue was... More

Words cannot describe the fantastic experience my family and I had at Villa Montecastello in the fall of 2012. Jens and Barbara are incredibly hardworking people who bent over backwards to accommodate every need we could have possibly ever imagined making our stay unforgettable. This is not typically a “wedding villa” however Jens was gracious enough to accommodate a very... More

Our 7 night stay at Villa Montecastello was absolutely the best vacation we've ever had. There simply are not enough superlatives to describe how stellar every element of our stay was. Jens and Barbara are wonderful hosts and create an inviting, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the best of Tuscany. We will definitely be planning another stay.
