We got a wedding present, two nights in Meleto. Tuscany is amazing, so the view from the Castle is amazing, but.. The rooms has wooden doors between them, so if in the next room there are two noisy kids, you won't sleep... This is what happened to us. Service, the wine that we got as a present was over dated,...

While on a fact finding tour of the area we came to this 'magical'place. We stayed in a 2 bed apt with wonderful views. It was extremely clean and very comfortable and warm. We were given a tour of the castle and loved every minute of it. The staff were warm and friendly. We will be back.

It was easy to find, though on a steep hill, and we were able to eat dinner at the restaurant which had amazing food! The reception was extremely helpful and in the lounge there is... More

We loved learning more about regional Chianti wine at Meleto. (Anthony Freveletti is a wonderful ambassador and teacher!) Definitely recommended to anyone looking to learn more about wine while enjoying a stunning Italian landscape.

I attended a family wedding at the castle in October and everyone is still raving about the experience! The staff is friendly and helpful. The views are better than what I've seen in the photos. We stayed in Canonica 100 (in the priest's house) which is technically not the castle but has the same exterior. The room was very clean.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Castello di Meleto is in the center of an ideal geographical triangle formed by the cities of Siena, Florence and Arezzo. Surrounded by six beautiful houses, painstakingly restored in 2000, preserving its rustic Tuscan style. Each house has a private garden or terrace that overlooks the countryside surrounded by green vineyards and olive groves.Easily accessible and close to the accommodation we have two infinity pools from which you can enjoy an unforgettable view. In the basement of the castle, a real historical monument, a charming wine shop allows you to taste our wines, our organic extra virgin olive oil and salami of Cinta Senese from our farm. On request we can organize banquets in medieval and Renaissance style in the picturesque setting of the frescoed rooms. In addition, daily guided tours of the ground floor of the castle, the eighteenth-century theater, the dungeons with ancient cellars, prisons and the secret tunnel to escape from the Castle .. will make you to live an unique and unforgettable experience in a real castle in the Chianti area.Daily walks are possible on roads and paths in the area.From the same roads, the "Eroica”, an fascinating extreme racing with vintage bikes, takes place every year.The staff of the Reception of the Castle will be pleased to arrange excursions departing from the Castello di Meleto to major art centers such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo and Val D'Orcia. On the territory of the Castle of Meleto guests can enjoy cycling, horse riding and walking, immersed in pristine nature of the Chianti hills. Our restaurant, “ La Fornace di Meleto” , at the bottom of the hill, offers typical Tuscan menu and innovative dishes.The Castle's history is also a history of Weddings, such as those of Alberto Ridolfi's daughter Lucrezia and, in 1852, Baron Bettino's daughter Elisabetta: it could also become the history of Your wedding, against a background imbued with extraordinary beauty.Meleto Castle can offer Religious ceremonies in its catholic church, the Pieve di Spaltenna.The Celebrations can be organized as you wish: the entire Piano Nobile (a series of furnished and frescoed rooms) can be put at Guests' disposal together with the garden, a splendid terrace overlooking the unspoilt panorama of the Chianti hills for enjoying a touch of sun, and the Stables ( Scuderia in Italian) , where guests can relax or let themself go in dancing.We specialise in providing the perfect atmosphere for a truly unique party, whether a Tuscan Castle wedding. ... more   less
