I had been planning my #1 bucketlist trip to Italy with a couple of friends since the beginning of the year. After much research of "special" places to stay, we decided on Castello Di Tornano in Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany. The website showed this beautiful castle and accomodations as the perfect place to stay in the Tuscany area, so I... More

As several reviewers have said this perfect miniature castle feels like it's all yours - don't know how as there were several other tables occupied in the jolly restaurant at breakfast and supper - but wandering around in the moonlight the only sound is the rustling of animals in the forest which leads up to the moat. The place feels... More

We had the most relaxing few days in Chianti and were overwhelmed by the breathtaking views surrounding the Castello. Our suite was gorgeous, with a huge four poster bed and lovely clean bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the wine tasting was particularly enjoyable. We hired a car and made the most of visiting the towns and... More

We were here for a mini-reunion of sorts (organized by a college friend of my husband's and his Italian wife), and found it completely enchanting. We actually stayed in "Mirto," which is an apartment in a house on the grounds and not in the castle itself, but were able to walk around inside the castle during the day and early... More

Our stay at Castello di Tornano was a quintessential Italian countryside visit. While the castle and the grounds were amazing, our private cooking class was a trip topper! We enjoyed learning how to make a traditional Chianti meal and dessert. The chef and asst. chef did an amazing job adding to the menu since everything wasn't a preference for my... More

We booked our stay here through Secret Escapes and got a fabulous deal for the room, air travel and car hire. It was a long weekend break for us Thursday until Monday. Needless to say on Monday we didn't want to leave. The hotel is two hours from Pisa airport and has an idyllic rural location in the Chianti Hills.... More

This was a repeat visit for us and we arranged our itinerary to accommodate. Tornano has slipped in service. Did not have available the specific apartment we had requested and sent deposit for. (Alas, no special, private romantic view). Still, it is very quiet and quintessential Tuscany. Excellent wine from their own vineyards. Had some shipped home. Dinner served al... More

The staff was fantastic, we are older and when we found our bathroom was down some narrow stairs the manger quickly moved us to another lovely room. The surroundings are picturesque and the grounds have everything you would want in a castle. Also the food is delicious; our lunch was served on our patio and dinner was served outside under...
