The Villa Castiglione has a first class restaurant for dinner so there is no need to look for over booked touristy places in Florence - this is as good as it gets in a beautiful largely private dining room. The hotel is a conference center and is brilliantly designed - the bed fixtures to the bathroom tiles to the dishes... More

very beautiful & nice place with convenient location near Florence. Very interesting design of the rooms with romantic atmosphere, the restaurant food is very-very tasty! the bell tower seeing from the room window was ringing and this also made additional authentic atmosphere. unfortunately the breakfast is rather poor - but this is fully compensated by other advantages as well as...

After a rally-like ride uphill towards Villa Castiglione, I had my enjoyment already. The metal gate opens slowly makes me feel like entering an elegant mansion. Choose wisely for your parking spot, you'll have a cool car to drive in the morning. Checking in in the afternoon, you can meet Kalun and Eleonora. They are both very responsible and helpful...

What a well-kept secret! Quite, stylish, quaint and peaceful. Just perfect in Florence and outside noisy busy city center. Old convent, little chapel, free parking and wifi, swimming pool. Very nice decoration and delicious breakfast.

We recently had a couple of nights at Villa Castiglione, which we used as a base from which to visit Florence. As some other reviewers have mentioned, it is hard to find. Our Tom Tom got completely confused. I think the problem is putting in the address as Impruneta. They should add coordinates on the hotel profile !! Once you... More

I was in Villa Castiglione for a long week end. I recommend the hotel for the location, the rooms and the availability of the people, they are really nice and for sure i would go back there. But i have also to be objective about how to reach it.The hotel provides a shuttle bus from the hotel to the nearest... More

My wife and I needed a place to stay to explore Florence and the hotels in Florence were very expensive. This was very affordable, had delicious breakfast and was an old monastery on top of a hill overlooking florence. The pool was great after a hot day in Florence and the tram at the bottom of the hill was perfect... More

It is not perfect but there are many very good points. The hotel is very charming, unique, with lots of character, and is set on an idyllic hill featuring undulating vistas packed full of olive groves with beautiful views of Florence and the the Tuscan countryside. It has a pool, which is very useful when the weather gets hots in... More

This converted old church is not what you would think from the outside. Driving up looks like a beautiful old church seen all over Italy. Inside has been converted to two floors and decorated in a splendid mix of modern art paintings and glass. Lot of gold leaf with bright colours in the furniture and handmade tiles in bathroom gave...
