We went to the Castle on our last day of a multi day tour, with a group of 35... a corporate award trip for our best customers. Only 15 of us went on this excursion, as others were took trains to Venice and Rome... but the Castle was every bit as amazing as the other side trips. Views are second... More

My whole family stayed here for a wedding and it was great! I loved the apartment set up! Such an authentic Tuscan experience! The grounds are stunning and the staff is polite and solicitous. Don't do breakfast though. Not worth the €12 they charge.You can drive to downtown Gaiole and have a wonderful panini at the local Alimentari. The riserva... More

We stayed in the castle part of this property. You need to do this as it is a once in a lifetime experience and it isn't even that expensive. The ceilings are crazy high, the doors are huge and heavy, and candles and a big gas fire furnace light/heat your room. Plus, since we stayed in one of the castle... More

The castle is beautiful and the tour guide who was also our server during the tasting was very attentive. The view from The castle grounds was beautiful. Unfortunately we did this tour after visiting smaller vineyards where we had private tours and very personal attention. The light lunch was also smaller than what we had at other smaller vineyards, however... More

There are few places I will return to in my travels. Castello did Meleto is one. The castle was enchanting, taking you back in time. The property and surrounding hills were beautiful. The staff was personable but not intrusive. The meals felt like a banquet for. A nobleman. And the wine......some of the best I have tasted.

We got married at this stunning Castle in July 2014. All of our family and friends stayed at the venue. All rooms were clean, comfortable and in keeping with the area, with stunning views everywhere you look. The staff at the Castle were all extremely friendly and helpful. When planning our wedding, we used the Castles own wedding planner, Katia,... More

We've enjoyed pretty much everything about our stay here: guided visit, spacious two-rooms appartment with floor-to-cieling windows with a view on typical Chianti scenery, lunch combined with local wines tasting, dinner in a restaurant at foothill. All priced more than reasonable, I'd say that's a real bargain!

We stayed in the self-catering apartment(not the castle). It's cheaper(we payed $288 for four nights, breakfast not included) and you get exactly the same service for guide tour and wine tasting. I would same go for the apartment if money is a concern for you. People there are really helpful. We went to the traditional market in Panzano in Chianti... More

It's my first time live in castle, and the experience was good. The agents are very nice and friendly. although they don't stay in hotel at night, they were very helpful to answer your need before they leave. But we were a little bit disappointed because the restaurant is closed in winter. We have to drive to another town for... More
