This is one of those special places that makes you want to keep it a secret so that it doesn't get over-run. However, Salvatore and Antonio have put so much work into the Castello that is has to be publicly praised. Salvatore and Antonio have made Castello delle Serre an enchanting place that feels like it belongs in Disney movie....

Stayed here for 3 nights last August. A wonderful view from the terrace with a swimming pool. Felt like a princess. The owners are very kind and helpful in planning what you'd like to do in the surrounding area. Best way to get here is with a car. Public transport is not so convenient, but possible. Can't wait to visit...

Dearest Vien and Brian, Our 2016 October Tour would not have been so special without the two of you.As I mentioned to the group during your stay, the greatest reward for what we do here at the castle is the reactions our guests have about their experience with us.

We are returning guests to the Castello Delle Serre, and this trip we felt like honored guests at Salvatore’s and Antonio’s marvelous October wine tour. Returning there after a 6-year interval felt like we were returning home, and the last day felt terrible – we were so sad to leave!!! What keeps us going is the anticipation of returning there...

Connected to this wonderful spot thru their connection with Castello di Amorosa in Napa. First: location, location, location. Three minutes from the castello you're on the the major highway to Siena, Arezzo, Cortona. Don't underestimate the convenience off pulling off the highway from a long day of sightseeing--and falling into a comfy chair in your room five minutes later. The...

We stayed at Castello delle Serre for four nights, and used the castle as a "base" to visit many nearby Tuscan villages.
