We stayed here for our honeymoon. The location and 360 degree panoramic views are incredible. The views cannot be beaten. The thermal pool was always clean and the spa facilities fantastic. The rooms were in traditional tuscan style and spacious. The reception staff were absolutely fantastic and always approachable and knowledgeable. The short tour on arrival was a nice touch... More

This really was an amazing property. We enjoyed our stay and all in all I do recommend this hotel. We stayed in a Sunset Junior Suite and thought the room and bath were stunning. Our patio overlooked the hills of Tuscany. Your couldn't dream of a more picturesque perch. This hotel could be rated 5 star but I think there... More

We had such a wonderful experience in our short, 2 day, visit that we know we will return. Staff is of the highest quality as are the accommodations, dining, wine, views, spa and more. There are few locations with views that are seen from this fantastic castle.

Castle on top of the hill with 360 degree views of the countryside; what more can you ask for? A special feature is the connecting hot pool which is also both indoor and outdoor; pair that experience with glass of the best Brunello wine and tell me if that doesn't put a smile on lips.

I stayed here with family over Easter weekend 2015. I cannot express how amazing our stay was, even despite the rainy and windy weather. The hotel/pool area has absolutely incredible views, the rooms were spacious and very comfortable and the staff consistently went out of their way to help in any way they could. The receptionist even brought her computer... More

My wife and I stayed here in early April. I travel extensively and this place hands down has the most amazing location I've ever seen. Located on top of a mountain with astounding views of a magnificent valley. The service is outstanding and friendly, the restaurant is great. Every meal was superb, and an incredible breakfast buffet, too. We had... More

Simply amazing 360-degree view of the valley and of the castle's own vineyards. We were looking for a nice place to eat lunch as we explored the region of Montalcino, when we stubbled upon this absolute gem of a location. The castle is newly renovated with all the amenities you would expect of a good hotel, but it is its... More

Sheer perfection in every aspect! Our 2 nights here weren’t enough time to truly appreciate how special this hotel- spa (and winery) is. It was the best of 5 high end places we stayed on our recent trip to Italy. We had not planned this stay in advance, but came here when a previous “country inn” booking had problems. The... More

we got married here in 2008. Beautiful locale, exceptional service and attentive staff. Went back to the area in 2009 but the resort was closed for expansion. looking forward to setting up another trip soon.

Surrounded by the idyllic beauty of Tuscany, from where the hotel stands, it offers grandiose views from every room, every terrace, every lounge. This place is simply breathtaking. It comes with a mix tasteful luxury, peaceful romance and a graceful staff. Our room was just what we needed for our romantic getaway: perfect view, private ensuite hottub with thermal water...
