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

Yes it's a bit tough to find and you probably need a car but it is worth it! My daughter and I arrived around 3 pm reception was wonderful and we were shown to our beautifully appointed apartment. We went to the wine tasting and castle tour where I promptly sent home a case of wine to the USA! The... More

Came here because of all the rave reviews and it is very much like staying in a castle. Rooms are a little spartan but the garden is beautiful and the views from the two pools are stunning. Very nice staff and the cooking school appeared to be very popular. The old stone architecture is very impressive too. Nice base to... More

We stayed at the castle for 3 nights, for our friends wedding. We stayed in room number 5 (2 adults and 2 young children), we had 1 additional bed, and this room was perfect for us. The castle is stunning, with amazing rooms and views. Both pools are lovely and clean too. The wedding was beautiful, and was well organised.... More
