We have had a wonderful week here staying in 2Br apartment Arco. Teresa and staff have been exceptionally helpful with advice and recommendations. And then organizing bookings for us as well. We had a wonderful day tour with the recommended driver. The surrounding grounds are quiet and peaceful. A restaurant in walking distance and another 3min drive. 10 min to supermarkets. Thank you Teresa!

We have just got back from our wedding in Il Castagno at the beginning of May. We had 70 of our friends and family stay at the venue in the apartments and villas. Everyone loved it! Each apartment has its own facilities so each family could have their own space as well as communal areas. Two pools, lake and beautiful deer. We couldn’t have asked for more. We cannot express how highly we thought of the staff and the venue! It was unbelievable. We do not get venues or help like that in the UK! The staff at Il Castagno were so helpful from start to finish. Everyone was commenting on how amazing it was and how brilliant the venue was. We already have guests wanting to go back on family trips next year. All 70 guests stayed for 3 nights and used it as a base to explore Florence, Pisa, Siena, Voltera, San Gimignano. The roads are lovely to drive and the views are incredible. Id like to thank the staff for all the help leading up the weekend, there were a lot of emails and I understand this takes a lot of time to do. I really appreciated the fact the staff also spoke amazing English as this wouldn't have been able to happen if they didn't - the staff have helped make our Italian dream wedding come true. I would highly recommend for a wedding/long weekend or full holiday.

An excellent place for those who want to live life in the Tuscan countryside. Accomodations very clean and well decorated. The lake is beautiful and invites for a beautiful walk. Great for weddings too!

This property contains a large villa and several other old stone buildings with smaller 1 to 4 bedroom units. We stayed in "Arco" which had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and was ideal for our family. Our travelling companions chose onother 1 bedroom unit next door. There were many other units to choose from , All very clean and modern with outfitted kitchens so you can have all of your meals there or go out. There is a good restaurant just at the end of the driveway, Il Castagno, and another, Boscotondo, just 2 km down the road. We enjoyed both of them. The location was superb. 10 min from Montaione and just 20 min. from San Gimignano or Volterra. Less than 1 hr drive to Siena or to the airport in Florence. You can easily use it as a home base and daytrip to the sites or spend time at the pool, the private lake or visiting the deer in the nearby forest. Teresa and Paola were wonderful hosts and very helpful with directions and restaurant info and even arranged for a private driver to take us to Assizi for the day.

We stayed here for a week with four families. Location is absolutely fabulous. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice swimming pool. However the apartments are really outdated: old furniture, beds and broken kitchen equipment in more then one apartment. I think it could do with total internal renovation.

Dear Freerk, thanks for your review. We try always to do our best, but sometimes the electric equipment betray us, above all at the beginning of the season after a long period of inactivity. Anyway we have been glad to had the possibility to host you here and if you will come back you will be surprised about the changes. Best regards from Il Castagno! Teresa
