Its not in Certaldo, its in Marcialla, a small village about 10km from Certaldo. It shouldn’t be an issue if you’re coming by car, and you are touring by car and have done a little research to find it, but if arriving by taxi and planning taxi tours it is a remote and expensive starting point. And unfortunately its all... More

Our family was looking for a Tuscan experience. This beautifully refurbished castle exceeded our expectations. Centrally located in the Chianti region. The friendly staff, beautiful grounds and cleanliness deserves a 5 star rating. We would highly recommend it!

It was fun finding the villa but head for the central village square and it is just off that. Staying in Marcialla was one of the highlights of our trip and this was due to mostly to the setting of this hotel and the helpfulness of Marta at reception. The room was large with a good bathroom and very effective... More

I planned a wedding from very far away and that comes with a lot of stress but when I got there the villa, the scenery and the location were everything I'd hoped they would be and more. And the staff, Fernando was helpful every... More

We stayed at Villa Tavolese because of a family wedding this May. What a fabulous setting! One opens the windows of the room and you think you are part of a movie! The location was ideal for touring Tuscany and visiting Florence. Small restaurant down the road in the village for dinners and good continental breakfast on site.

I stayed at the Villa Tavolese on an alumni trip via the Univeristy of Michigan. Villa Tavolese was the perfect set up for a group. Staff was welcoming and accommodating. The central location between Florence, Siena, and Pisa was great. It was nice to be in an authentic Tuscan village. Really got a flavor for the region. Nice pool -... More

I was like a toscan princess in that hotel .It is very plush, comfortable, with all the details of an old place, but also every modern convenience ( even computers ) . The staff was great and courteous . This was a special treat for me. From my window,... More
