July, 2012 my husband and I googled "best places to stay in Tuscany." From the wonderful descriptions and reviews we chose Castello delle Serre and booked a few nights. It went beyond our expectations. Shelley and all the family ( Hi Sal! :) ) were amazing hosts, so helpful recommending places to see, restaurants to try, incredibly relaxed and gracious. Our room in the castle tower was spectacular, a lovely small living room, gorgeous bathroom and a winding staircase which led up to our bedroom complete with lovely antique furniture. The bed was so comfortable, and it was beautifully quiet. The pool is absolutely beautiful, comfortable lounge chairs... I could go on and on..suffice it to say, we did not want to leave when it was time to check out. We promised ourselves we would be back and.... we are! We have just booked our second visit for July of this year and cannot wait. If you choose one place to stay in Tuscany let it be here, you will not be disappointed.
