Thanks a lot to Alberto! Tasty meal with pleasant service in the ancient castle. This is that I hoped to get in Italy!

We have just returned from our stay at Antico Casale (august 2011). Stayed for three nights. Quiet, very nice place, new, great pool, beautiful grounds and fabulous food! .The Casolare is a totally relaxing experience. All rooms with air conditioning, wifi internet connection.
.It is in the middle of a natural park , so you need a car . We had a sat nav to help us find it but it didn't take us to the right place, so make sure that you use a map too! They dont' accept credit cards.

Great to be back. Everything as wonderful as ever with a few new twists: new furniture in the lounge and more choice in the restaurant. Staff always helpful and the rooms comfortable and spotlessly clean. Splendidly relaxing in stunning surroundings. Thank you for all your hard work it is much appreciated and we will for sure be back.

The old farmhouse has been well restored, the staff are helpful, the food is good & the surrounding national park is lovely.........BUT the hotel is chaotic and not ready for guests. We had 1 problem after another during our stay (no sheets, no hot water, dirty towels, swimming pool in the middle of a ploughed area because the grass hasn't grown etc).
The staff are trying really hard to sort out these issues & keep people happy, but 'Romantic Tuscany' need to show more consideration towards their clients. We only booked a week before our stay - but there was no mention of the fact that it had only just opened. (The March review below is completely misleading as it relates to another property altogther.) Antico Casale has the makings of a lovely place to stay - but Romantic Tuscany need to get their act together first.

After a trip through an unpaved road (you must have a car, preferably a 4 wheel drive) for 5 km without any sign or indication we arrived in the middle of nowhere in this "antico casale" but actually the whole property looks recently built. There is no internet connection in the hotel whatever they say on the website. There is not even a cell phone sign available, so you're really disconnected from the outside world. There are no bikes for rent, no wellness center. The rooms look hastily decorated with no eye for details (not fitting curtains, no chair etc). There are problems with electricity and plumbing: no hot water, leakage in the shower, dirty yellow brown water running from the tap after a rainstorm. Not enough deck chairs around the pool, a cheerless restaurant. Unprofessional staff with a very disorderly administration: all the data of the guests including their creditcardnumber with verificationcode lay scattered on the desk in the "office" visible to everyone's eye! There was no registration procedure on arrival. On departure you had to pay cash and received not even a bill: this was promised to be sent by email, but has not arrived thus far!
