We had our wedding in Il Castagno 8 years ago and we returned last week with our little boy. So it was an emotional experience for both of us.
It was both comforting and disconcerting to see that everything was as before, nothing had changed. We were well looked after by Agnes and the lovely caretaker who helped us out on one or two occasions.
I would recommend this venue for a quiet get away - its clean, rustic, quiet, in a beautiful location, 20 minutes from San Gimigango, 40 from Siena. It is not a five star property and it does not pretend to be one, but then i don't think anyone looking at this venue wants a "Four Seasons" style venue. The countryside is simply beautiful, one can travel to a great many places for day trips or simply stay in the grounds and enjoy the pools and kids play area.
My only quibble is that the wi fi is woeful - but for some people that could be an advantage.
