Finding the Castle takes a bit of effort, but it is worth it. Once you make it up the long dirt driveway it feels like entering your own private world. We stayed on the top floor which had 360 degrees of incredible views. It is a lot of stairs but if you can make it one more floor the rooftop... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Castello di Tornano and wished it could have been more! The rooms were lovely and decorated in a timeless manner, with the castle oozing charm and history. The swimming pool was a fabulous experience (although chilly!) swimming in the old moat. However, the best part was the food, served in a casual and friendly... More

We have just returned from 5 nights staying at Castello di Tornano and had the most amazing time. We booked through Secret Escapes and our trip included flights, car hire and a mini cookery class with Momma Anna which was great fun. The staff were amazing, giving fabulous advice about where to go and how to get there, the food... More

We stayed in one of the apartments and had an incredible time, great balcony overlooking Tuscany. The staff was wonderful, Claudia and Goreprete could not have been more accommodating. The pool and grounds were spotless. The breakfast was great! There is a winery/restaurant in an old abbey near by that was worth the 15 min. drive. Would definitely go back.

The food, the wine and the service were all superb. Castello di Tornano was a honeymoon dream come true. We highly recommend the cooking class and the wine tasting! Seriously the best homemade pasta and red wine we've ever had :)

Our stay at this gorgeous hotel was amazing. We spend there 5 days and we really enjoyed their food, wines and great atmosphere. The staff was friendly and engaging. Our tower suite with 8 windows was incredible, also the roof top terrace view was just breathtaking. A lovely place, looking forward to visit it again.

This was actually the accommodation my wife and I chose for the first week of our honeymoon and we are delighted we picked Castello di Tornano. It is perched on a peak slightly lower than those which encompass it, but it still provides a pleasing view, especially on sunset. What really grabbed me was the real sense of nature one... More

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
