My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in late November as part of a driving tour of Tuscany.We stayed in the two room apartment on the floor above the entrance and two floors below reception and breakfast.
The setting of the castle is truly spectacular. We had very nice weather during our stay with misty early mornings followed by sun. The setting is very quiet but close to Siena and a good base for exploring Tuscany in all directions. The proprietor Nicola was helpful with suggestions for driving and for getting around Siena. He was not always on the property, however, and the rest of the extended family that occupies the castle has very limited English.
Our apartment was comfortable and spacious with a great view, though the bathroom is quite small. It contained a washing machine that we did not use but some may find very convenient. We arrived on a Thursday and departed on Monday morning, the only time the rooms were cleaned was Friday, which was a little disappointing. My wife thought the rooms too dusty, this didn't bother me but others may view this as a problem. In the evenings we could here some TV noise and creaking floors from the occupants of the room above, though generally it was very quiet by about 11 PM and again, this did not really bother us.
There were several cats and dogs around the property and we found a cat in our rooms upon returning one day. We're not cat lovers but they don't bother us either, someone with allergies might have an issue. The breakfasts each morning were filling and good. We had good croissants, ham, cheese, yoghurt, juice, and coffee. The breakfast rooms and reception area are pleasant and comfortably furnished and we felt welcomed there by Nicola and his family.
You park about 150 meters from the castle entrance among the olive trees and it is a dark walk on a moonless night, though there are some small garden path lights to assist.
We enjoyed our stay, and would consider staying again on a return visit to Tuscany,
