My friend and I vacationed in Tuscany for two weeks in April, and part of our stay was at Villa Montecastello. We took cooking classes with the owner, Jens. Now Jens calls himself a "cook" but I can tell you first hand that he has the mad skills of a great chef! We cooked some of the best food I've... More

The room was large and wonderful. It had A/C but one night it was so nice outside, we just left the window open because it had screens. The breakfast room was large and the food was good and plentiful. After touring we had wine and snacks outside overlooking the landscape. Since it was on a mountain top, the views were... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the beautiful Villa Montecastello with our family for our wedding this summer. My husband and I had travelled to Italy twice before visiting the villa and fell in love with Tuscany so decided it would be the perfect location for our wedding. We had never been or heard of Villa Montecastello before but... More

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
