“Tuscany at its Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Exceptional experience from the view over the Tuscan hills, the uniqueness of the small castle to the Exceptional service we received! Above all was the amazing variety of Tuscan Cuisine that was served the 4 nights we dined there! Highly recommend the full dining experience with all courses.

Rooms were extremely clean.

Only criticism at all was the hot tub temperature could have been warmer...almost not worth mentioning and certainly not a deterent.

My wife and I will surely be coming back! Bellisimo Il Castellucio you made this a trip an experience of a lifetime!

We visited this great Hotel in September 2012 as part of a multi-city roadtrip.

Despite arriving late to the check-in (15.00-20.00), we were warmly welcomed by the staff and served a great dinner. Our room was sizeable and clean, the showers are great. In general, it is lovely building in a great setting which offers a taste of the beauty of Tuscany.

The food was excellent and we loved the calm location of the Castelluccio, although it can be a little irritating driving there from the Autostrada through a horrible little road.

Nice atmosphere and very good value for the money.

Stayed here for 11 days with my family, ideal location for visiting Florence only 35 minutes away. It was a great base for other day trips too. A great little place, made even better because the people who run it work so hard to make it feel like a home from home. wonderful get away location up in the mountains - super local food (the best pasta we have ever tasted) great wine and a simple but tasty breakfast. Veronica and team, thank you for a wonderful time.

- Stayed there in June for one week, great hospitality and food. Stayed in the Giotto room which is pretty small and has no windows.
- The distance from the highway exit is actually more like 25 minutes (and not 10 minutes as the websire says) and over a very bad unsealed road with big potholes.
- To Florence (centre of town) it is a good 35 miniute drive, add another 15 miniutes if you catch the morning rush hour whjere trafiic is very bad and chaotic (have to love the italian scooter drivers and bicycle riders).
- WiFi is not working in all rooms and drops out regularly
- This is most probably not so well suired for couples but more for famillies with children

A bit nicer than your average "agriturismo" it's more like a bed and breakfast.

Breathtaking views over the hills, close to Florence, easy access to A1, making it a wonderful base for touring around.

Breakfast is simple but just enough....delicious fresh juice and jams, yogurt, fruit, breads...

Dinner is divine...and a fantastic value for the plentiful and scrumptious feast of several courses lasting well over an hour!

The pool is wonderful with breathtaking views....our kids spent hours enjoying it and I could relax and delight in the beautiful surroundings!

Our rooms were cozy and very Tuscan country feeling... One small issue - ants in the bathroom- was addressed immediately... extremely comfortable beds, very good quality new clean towels....personal and gracious service....

One small note- I would enjoy the fresh air in our bedroom, but the presence of bugs (as with any country location, not just here) made it necessary to keep windows closed and ac on... The ac is a big plus as other places do not always have it, but I wonder if window screens might make open windows an option as well... Really not a big deal- I'm just a fresh air fan, but you get plenty of it here during the day outside at the pool and while feasting on amazing dinners!

Overall, Il Castellucio was beautiful, service was excellent, food was some of the best I've ever tasted, rooms were comfortable... I do not hesitate to recommend it and would definitely stay again!

5 of us stayed here in May 2012, the location is amazing, isolated, quiet but still close enough to Barberino, the food was sensational. We had the honeymoon suite fantastic room with great views. An excellent place to stay and would highly recommend it to any one. Dont miss this one. quie
