“Over the top!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

One of our best vacations ever! Stress free and tons of fun. Every day a different , wonderful adventure! Jens, the villa owner and our host is one of the most fascinating and knowledgeable persons I've ever met. He arranged several tours of wineries as well as memorable dinners at the Villa and small, out of the way osterias we would never have found on our own. The cooking classes were a highlight! With Jens guidance we managed to create lunches to rival any five star restaurant! we even had our own driver to take us to and from all venues! Morning breakfasts in the courtyard a daily treat. First class all the way. Don't hesitate to book this trip!

“Truly memorable experience!”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The villa was a lovely, relaxing with absolutely amazing views. The quaint property was perfect for relaxing poolside, taking wonderful walks through the gardens or gathering as a group in the courtyard for an amazing meal or drink! Guest rooms were very spacious, decorated extremely well and comfortable sleeping arrangements especially with the windows open taking in the beautiful breeze.
Jens was a tremendous host; his attention to the details was superb. His cooking classes were over the top, the excursions we took were each better than the next and the restaurants he arranged for us were spectacular....every aspect of the week was exceptional!

“Our time at Villa Montecastello was amazing!”
Reviewed October 16, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Montecastello. Jens is a wonderful host who made sure of our every need. Our room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. The view from our room was spectacular. The villa is perched atop a mountain with stunning views of the Tuscan country side. We really appreciated the farm to table experience and Jens' vast knowledge of local wine and olive oil.

“Fabulouse week at Villa Montecastilli”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a week at Villa Montecastilli for the annual cooking school hosted by the villa and when Marco Canora, chef/owner of Hearth Restaurant in Manhattan teaches. It was an amazing week. The villa is beautiful and the rooms are so tastefully done, with the smell of lavender lingering everywhere. Jens, the owner, is charming and so well informed about food and wines of the region and just about everything else!
The cooking school was fun, learned a lot and delicious. Marco is an excellent teacher and you can tell he genuinely loves what he is going and wants you to understand what he is teaching and be able to do it at home! There was a group of 12 of us and we had such a good time together. Truly a memorable vacation and I would go back in a minute!!

Absolutely perfect!
Villa Montecastello lived up to every dream I ever had of staying in a Italian villa.
The place is beautiful. Perfect in everyway.
Jens was so knowledgeable. Extremely helpful and such a wonderful chef.
I would certainly recommend staying here and would stay here again on future returns to IT.
Thanks Jens and his wonderful staff!

“We called it "perfect" in our calendar - and it lived up to expectations”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Villa Montecastello is a superlative experience. It is an amazing cross between luxury and family - on the one hand, you arrive into a perfectly appointed suite, complete with fresh flowers from the garden and linens that I wanted to bring home with me - and on the other, you immediately feel a part of Jens's and Barbara's family. The views are spectacular, the food impressive (for a small additional fee, you can arrange meals at the Villa), and the service impeccable. Particular thanks to Antonella, who runs the inn, who could not have done a better job at making this a special stay. I am already trying to figure out how I can get back for my next stay.

“perfect tuscan vacation and wedding”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a week at Villa Montecastello in early September with both of our families to celebrate our wedding.We found it online and didn't have the chance to see it before the wedding but it was just as perfect as on the pictures and in the other reviews. The villa is so beautiful, everybody loved it. And Jens and Barbara were really welcoming and helpful. They made it so easy for us, we didn't have to worry about anything. The wedding dinner and the flowers provided by them were amazing. They also recommended a wedding planner and a band that were really great. We had the best time and all our guests were really happy and relaxed. We have the best memories of that week and want to go back for sure!
