“EXQUISITE. PEACEFUL. GREAT SERVICE.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

That kind of place we would like to go back for a few more days.

The courtyard is divine. We were lucky to enjoy good weather, which made it idillic.

The chef deserves a Michelin rating. Great stay.

If you want to enjoy Tuscany, its countryside, its restaurants and sights, this is a great place to set up base in.

I recently stayed at Castello Spaltenna during my wedding weekend. The grounds are breathtaking! You really do feel like you've escaped to an ultra-posh yet charming hideaway in the hills.

We held our rehearsal dinner on the outdoor terrace which offered a gorgeous view of the vineyard during aperitivo and dinner. All the staff were caring and accommodating, especially the manager, Tiziano, who I corresponded with many times leading up to the weekend events.

We continued to travel around Italy and Europe after leaving Spaltenna but I can say that my favorite hotel was the gem. I'll most definitely be back!

Room Tip: Junior Suite was spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable.

We traveled to Gaiole from Florence and on our way to Rome with a group of 17 for a 3 night stay. We could not believe how beautiful Spaltenna was when we arrived. Just getting our of our car we were struck with how good it smelled from the beautiful lush rosemary and lavender plants lining the entrance, along with rosebushes and hydrangeas. The castle itself and the surroundings were like paradise. Everyone in our group, aged 12-68 years, was completely entranced. The rooms were clean, roomy and had spectacular views. The staff were extremely friendly, accommodating and professional. We ate dinner our first night in the courtyard; it was like a dream. The surroundings were so picturesque and the food was amazing. The pool was beautiful with unbelievable views. Spaltenna was the perfect relaxation spot we needed in between our busy city trips. Our 3rd day there were took a day trip to Siena. Two nights we walked down to Gaiole for dinner and happened upon 2 excellent restaurants. It's hard to describe how much we all loved staying at this castle. When we got to Rome, many of us said that we wished we had just stayed at Spaltenna for the remainder of our trip!

We had a wonderful stay at Spaltenna - the rooms are beautiful, the service exceptional and the restaurant delicious! Ask at the front desk for advice on wine tasting in the region, and enjoy the complementary tastings at Vertine.

I have travelled a lot over the past 10 years and can safely say that my 2 nights in Spaltenna was one of the best holidaying experiences I have ever had.
I was worried that i would get bored and that 2 nights would be, frankly, too much- how wrong I was.
The one hour drive was blissful and picturesque (although I have never driven on the right side of the road before)- mores was the rolling hills and view of the never ending vineyards once you were there. This place will really blow your mind.
The hotel staff were attentive, obliging to requests and did the most wonderful things, like turn our beds, while we were at dinner, so when we arrived back to the room we were all ready for bed!
The restaurant is Michelin star- the food incredible the staff were amazing and the prices quite reasonable. i had the best meal of my life at this place.
The spa and recreation area were insane as well. I thought I would have to pay extra for its use because it was so amazing but i was wrong. The use of the pool, jacuzzi, sauna, turkish bath house, dry/ wet rooms, relaxation rooms etc were used at my own leisure and was manned by a lovely lady who took requests to make the experience even better.
Overall, i can not say enough good things about this place. although ppl may see this place as for couples only, I went with a friend and i fell in love with the place. I would definitely come again!

We stopped here only for an overnight stay and wished we had couple more days. As there were 3 of us, we had what I would call an apartment on the top of a standalone building away from the main building. There was a living room, a bathroom and two bedrooms (one with double bed and the other single bed). The patio overlooked the valley and lush greenery and we could see the village below. There was nothing old about the apartment even though this is a Castello and it was nice and cozy.

We had dinner at the courtyard under the stars which was a charming experience. Breakfast the next day was also great, with a wide spread of local products. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to relax and chill for some days in Tuscany.

Spent several days at Castello....it is an old monastery perched over the rolling Tuscan country side. I had the junior suite which was spacious and charming, with a very comfortable bed and bath. The pool is excellent, the gym not so excellent as it is very small. Plenty of room in the spa to enjoy oneself. Breakfast is delicious. Highly recommended for a get away.
