“An awesome experience from begining to end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed here in December with our two teenage children. If you are in the area, you need to stay here, a truly extraordinary experience from beginning to end. Service was perfect without being obsequious, everything was comfortable and pleasant, both restaurants were excellent, and the spa was delightful. One small example: they have a pillow menu! If you don't like the down pillows on the bed, they give you a choice of 6 other pillows you can choose from.
The grounds were gorgeous (this was December remember), the breakfast buffet was terrific, with all kinds of Tuscan foods comparable to any restaurant we ate at in the area.
The castle is also centrally located, we visited Pisa, Sienna, Sam Gimignano, and several vineyards, all an easy drive away. The very efficient staff at the front desk will be happy to give you directions and a neat list of things to do at each destination.
We will definitely be back.

We arrived after a beatiful trip throw the woods and hills of the Tuscany and we reached this fabulous hotel that used to be a Castello from a big family of Italy. The food was great, we ate a 5 course menu, a trip to the Tuscany with the sense of flavour!

We arrive about 9:30 in the evening and they wisked our luggage from us and we went right to dinner as we were very hungry. We had a choice of two restaurants: a one star Michelin or their traditional Tuscan, La Tavernia. The food was very traditional. After a wonderful dinner we were taken tomour beautiful room. Very modern with a huge bathroom well appointed. The bed was very comfortable as many Italian hitels have beds that are very hard. The grounds were very well taken care of with many oieces of artwork. Breakfast can be a full American Breakfast but a very nice buffet is typical Italian. Expresso is excellent. The staff is verybfriendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I were in Tuscany for our anniversary and we had chosen a different hotel as our HUB to see the Chianti region of Tuscany but that other hotel wasn't what we hoped for so decided to cancel our booking early and look for a different hotel closer to the Chianti hills and wineries to visit. We met a couple who referred us to Castello del Nero and it truly was what we were hoping for. Not only is this hotel beautiful, but the staff is 5 stars! They welcome you with a hot towel and are so accommodating, you definitely feel you are walking into a 5 star hotel. When i told the front desk our story and that it was our anniversary they went ahead and upgraded us and sent us a bottle of prosecco when we arrived to our room.The check in process was fast and they still managed to have our bags waiting for us in our room. The room was beautiful, the marble bathroom gorgeous and the bed and robes beyond comfortable! The TV had free movies to choose from which is rare from what we experienced in all the other hotels we visited. Waking up to the most amazing view was priceless and exactly what i had been dreaming to wake up and see in "Tuscany" The hotel is beautifully kept. We had dinner at the more casual restaurant downstairs and it was a delicious meal and the server/bartender was so sweet and friendly. The bar area is gorgeous made of all stone and so romantic with a fireplace. We truly had an amazing experience at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Tuscany. We went to see the spa and it looked like the perfect way to spend the day or a few, unfortunately we did not have time to experience it. I will definitely be returning to this gorgeous Tuscan hotel.

This is a great hotel. All around I'd say this is THE best hotel I've ever stayed at.

When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff, handled very professionally and expeditiously, even to a staffer from the Spa coming out to offer us cool lavender towels after a long drive up from Rome.

Our room was impeccable, immaculate, comfortable and it was apparent that someone had given great attention to every detail of what works best for travelers. The bar is very inviting, as was Miro--a very accomplished mixologist--and the serving staff. The dining room is first rate in decor, food and service.

The facilities are breathtaking. The views from the multi-layered terraces and pool area are remarkable, and the buildings which comprise the hotel complex are inviting are very well-kept.

This hotel is nothing short of a brilliant achievement. It is what every good hotel should be.

I can honestly say that I have every intention of returning to Castello del Nero for a longer stay in the Toscana region in the near future. And, I would not hesitate to recommend this gem.

We stayed in 4 excellent hotels during our recent trip to Italy, including the Four Seasons in Florence, and this was far and away our favorite. The staff is superb, breakfast exquisite, the grounds are truly gorgeous and the rooms are spacious and quiet. Perfectly situated between Florence and Sienna, this hotel offered us a wonderful daily respite after touring the lovely Tuscan countryside. We stayed for three nights and look forward to extending our next visit.
