We spent 6 nights at Castello di Spaltenna on a honeymoon. It is a truly fantastic place and one of the few examples when reality is even better than on the photos. A truly medieval architecture, with an old church, where it is always cool however excruciating heat is outside, picturesque scenery all around, highly professional staff, amazing breakfasts on...

The best, most welcoming, caring and most enjoyable stay we had in Tuscany. And we stayed at three different top destinations. Beds were maybe a little on the hard side, but no problem for us. Great scenery at breakfast and it was perfect to loan bikes and tennis rackets.

We were originally booked in a B&B nearby, which wasn't entirely to our liking, so we called the Castello di Spaltenna and came on the spur of the moment. What a great decision! We had a beautiful room that connected to the rear of a 14th Century church, which was spacious and comfortable, as well as quiet at night. The... More

We stayed at the junior suite for 3 people including one bed in the loft. The hotel was nice and quiet with a Michelin worth restaurant. The hotel staff, especially those working at the restaurant was friendly. We were hoping the concierge could give us more information about touring around the area but was a little disappointed. Perhaps it was... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Italy. The facility is very unique and an amazing place. The staff was extremely helpful, professional and courteous. I have not had better service anywhere, this is 5 star quality. The location of the hotel overlooks a wine vineyard, a tranquil area of unsurpassed beauty, and the countryside views are breathtaking.

We knew that this property would be special and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by 3 staff at check in. Our room overlooked the courtyard, featuring a 10th Century church and vineyard behind the building. There was an outdoor and indoor pool as well as spa facility on request. We ate our dinners here both nights and had... More

We stayed 4 night. We enjoyed our room with a great balcony with an amazing view. We were on the end of one of the extensions and it was quiet and so relaxing. We took many day trips to hill towns like Siena and montepulciano and it was a fantastic "home" to come back to. We enjoyed the bar with... More

First off, I cannot say enough for the service here. Without doubt, second to none. The front desk helped save us in a crunch, providing some emergency phone calls that made the difference between a ruined vacation or sanity. During my trip planning, they spent a ton of time to offer numerous suggestions and recommendations. The location is outstanding. So... More

We had a wonderful stay at the castle with our kids (8 and 11). We enjoyed the bar, the pool, the view, and especially our two bed two bath suite. The service was superb. We were surprised also at how phenomenal dinner at the castle was. We think dessert was the best we had ever eaten. And we eat a... More
