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.

We saw a LOT of venues all over the region, but none of them compared to Castello di Meleto... and so we booked as soon as we got back to the UK. The... More

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

I was very lucky to be a guest at my friends wedding here. The grounds were breathtaking. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable. The food and wine were to die for. A big thanks to Katia for organising everything and making the stay so enjoyable.
