Yes the castle is off the beaten track, but we knew that upon booking. It is a small holding with original 700 year old buildings. There are mod cons such as wifi, toilet, bidet, hot & cold running water, heating, 2 burner gas stove, small fridge & comfy beds.... Only negative was the tiny shower.... Hubby is 6'4" (195cm) so...

Had one of the best holidays ever at this beautiful castle with husband and 18 year old daughter. The setting is idyllic, especially the pool area which we had to ourselves most of the time. We had apartment 6 in the Guard's House which was everything you would expect of rooms in a castle; not spoilt by modernisation but the... More

NOTE: This "when did you travel?" function won't let me put in correct date -- May 2006 About six years ago, my parents, sister and I went to Italy. I had recently graduated with an Art History degree and having always longed for an Italian excursion, never-mind that my family is BIG on traveling, it seemed like a perfect choice.... More

It is regrettable that some people have posted comments which may lead potential visitors to skip the wonderful experiences possible at Castello di Ripa d'Orcia. My husband, teenage daughter, and I stayed for 7 nights in a self-catering apartment here. Ripa d'Orcia is both a lovely place to stay and a working venture with products including extra virgin olive oil,... More

The owner/operator is as unfriendly as they come. Don't expect luxury accommodation or hospitality. The rooms do not have air conditioning, nor a refrigerator. There is a list of rules posted in the washroom. A reminder to pay and what you owe is posted on your door on the eve of your departure. The view from the rooms is lovely... More

DREAMS AND REALITY. The dream of a luxury accommodation, which nobody here never promised or sold, is the main cause of this fake and incorrect review. (Just to give an example we believe that these two gentlemen can’t read their language properly given that the notes, those they are referring to, contain totally different information from what they have written...

ok to be far the outlook was gorgeous but in all fairness you could be anywhere in this region and have a fantastic view. I found the property to be slightly rundown. the room was huge but had a strange feel about it. The bathrooms weren't clean and the towels were horrible like drying myself with a sheet or table...

My partner and I stayed in the castle in late June, 2012. We went with my father and his wife, who visit every other year. We both had an enjoyable week in the sunshine - the castle is isolated but it is a great base for exploring the surrounding area and it was perfect for some quiet time relaxing and... More

We stayed at the Castello for three nights. Had a great view, it is centrally located in Tuscany, quiet, private, and off the beaten path, but close to so many Tuscan towns. The rooms are large by European standards, the bathroom updated. The breakfasts are very much above the norm and the restaurant provides well prepared, delicious meals - including... More

The castle is located about 50 mins from Siena. There are limited rooms and we were lucky enough to score the Valley View room. It had beautiful views of the valley below from every room- including the toilet!! The room consisted of bedroom, dining room, kitchenette and bathroom. All very clean and spacious. Even though we were on our honeymoon... More
