A wonderful old castle which has been completely and tastefully updated. A delightful hostess and nice breakfast. A convenient country location very near to Monteriggioni. The rooms are spacious and the baths are large by Italian standards. Well worth a stay

Our stay at Castel Pietraio was amazing. The hotel is fantastic! Gabriela is very kind and funny. The room was gorgeous and very big, the location is perfect to visit the area. Gabi also suggested us to go do Casalta for dinner and we had an amazing night.

I thank you on behalf of myself and all the Castel Pietraio Staff for your kind review. It was a pleasure for us to accomodate you during your stay in the Chianti region; such as you have been able to see we are in a strategic area, located between Florence and Siena, just a few kilometers from the beautiful San...

My husband and I stayed at the Castel Pietraio for 4 nights on our honeymoon in August. It isn't the easiest to find - but our GPS got us close enough that we eventually found it. It would be VERY difficult to find for the first time in the dark as it's VERY dark out in the countryside. We were... More

Castel Pietraio, a real renaissance-era castle converted to an agriturismo on nearly 400 acres of productive farmland smack in the middle of Tuscany, is a great home base for exploring the region. Located within a few kilometers of Monteriggioni, 400 meters to the direct east of the village of Strove, the castle is quite easy to find if you’ve properly... More

We have just returned from a wonderful few days at Castel Pietraio. We stayed in a small but comfortable apartment, with a kitchen/living room and double bedroom, located in the old castle. What made it so special was the small shared terrace immediately outside the room, built into the ramparts, which was a perfect place to eat in the mornings... More

Enjoyed 3 nights in this wonderful corner of Tuscany north of Sienna, east of of Volterra and SE of San Gimignano. Great base for exploring the countryside and wonderful trails in this area for hikes. The accommodations were comfortable and we had a corner room with beautiful views of the surrounding fields. The rooms are not in the main building... More

We thought we might have trouble finding the Castel Pietraio and we did, but not as bad as we anticipated. Once we found it we were delighted that in fact it really was a castle. Very charming.

Our week long apartment stay in the medieval castle, Castel Pietraio gave us the modern comforts of wifi and television in a setting of thick stone walls and beamed ceilings. We found the location perfect to explore the Tuscany region from Volterra to Chianti and down to the hill towns of Montalcino and Montepulciano. Gabrielle took the time to make... More

The location alone makes this a great place... surrounded by grapes & sunflowers, 10 minutes to Siena and 45 minutes to Florence... add the charm and antiquity of the main castle, the well equipped apartments, the pool surrounded by fragrant lavender, the friendly and accommodating staff and the quaint walled village of Monteriggioni only 2 minutes away and this can't...
