we booked this hotel a few months prior to arrival, based on reviews. When we arrived, we found out that the hotel was only open for one month, so therefore reviews were all fabricated. The web stated, wifi,credit card accepted. Upon arrival we found out there was no wifi, no phone service and no credit cards accepted. The hotel was in the middle of nowhere, you had to drive many kms along an unpaved road to arrive and was really not in a good location. The young lady that worked there was very friendly and helpful. She said she would call the owner and perhaps we could switch to her other property in Chianti, the owner told the young lady that if we left she would deduct it off her pay. She quit and we left for a much better place with beautiful vistas and professionalism which was definetly lacking at antico casale. I would not recommend this place unless do no want service, vistas, wifi, phone service or credit cards accepted.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Originally born as a staging post for changing horses it is documented since Roman times. Although today nothing remains of the original structure Antico Casale offers relax and tranquility immersing the guest in a romantic atmosphere and familiar at the same time, the proximity to the nature reserve of Castelvecchio and the short distance from Sangimignano makes it strategic and ideal for those who want to visit and experience the real Tuscany. The magic of silence...The flavors of the past...An emotional atmosphere... ... more less
