“An unexpected gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

If you don't have GPS here is a tip. On the SR222 from Greve to Castellina at Klm mark 39.4 to your left is a driveway with 3 wine barrels take this driveway and just past the barrels is reception, from Castellina look for the above at the 39.5 mark and exit right.
Although a busy road during the day it is fine at night and the rooms are reasonably sound proof. The bed was very comfortable and there was nothing I wanted for, Nora takes the trouble to bake bread and cakes which makes for a very pleasing breakfast. Watching the sun go down in the afternoon over the Tuscan hills sitting in the many available areas is great. Radda, Castellina, Panzano and Greve are all in easy striking distance as is Seina and Florence. Nora is keen to ensure you enjoy your stay and I for 1 will return.

We stayed here for one week with our young enfant. The rooms are not that large, but nicely decorated and there is a lot of outdoor space where you can sit and relax. The owners are very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The breakfast is delightfull with home baked and fresh food. The poolarea is very nice, only the wasps, musquito's and other biting bugs make it a lot less comfortable...
Without the noise from the road in front of the hotel, it would be a perfect stay.

Rooms are excellent, very stylish, with amazing view over the vineyards. Hosts are wonderful and helpful. Nora makes homemade bread and cakes for every breakfast. If you get a chance, take an appartment, it is much more spacious than room, and has bed with tapestry. Every now-and-then you hear a car on the road, which really is right behind the trees, but we didnt find it disturbing and there was no traffic during the night. Whole area is on a hill, so, there is not a field of free space around, but enough to spend nice, quiet evening on the porch with candles and bottle of Chianti ;)
The biggest pro is locality. Restaurant with winecellar is right next to residenzia and it is very good starting point to Siena, Florence and of course, whole valley of Chianti surrounded by winemakers. We stayed whole week and would not change. Definitely recommend.

This place was perfect! Beautiful views from the porch and rustic rooms that are comfy and cozy. Pool is clean and beautiful and the quiet surrounding porches and patios are lined with candles each and every night. I would recommend this place because Nora is an amazing host. She serves an AMAZING homemade breakfast complete with homemade quiches, breads, preserves, and a bounty of desserts, meats, and cheeses. We were in love with this place and it is a lovely retreat for a romantic get away.

Room Tip: Seemed like all the rooms were perfect!

We stayed for 2 nights in the beautiful Residenzia del Sogno. We had a warm welcome from the owners and they were very helpful, making calls for us and providing us with all of the information we needed. Our room was gorgeous with a homely farm feel. Our doors opened onto a patio area with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. We could relax out there with a glass of wine and our books for hours! There is a pool but the weather was a bit cool for a dip, but the views from there were gorgeous. The breakfasts were amazing with home cooked treats- our favourite breakfasts from our whole Italian trip. The Residenzia is a great base to explore the surrounding towns and sights and to just relax for a couple of days.

We had a great experience. First, it is adorable - the outside is beautiful, situated in the relaxing Tuscan countryside just outside of the lovely town of Castellina de Chianti so it was only a 5 minute drive to town. We stayed for 3 nights and seriously didn't want to leave. The hostess Nora is wonderful. She was so considerate. Several evenings we found ourselves coming back just to relax outside with a bottle of wine that we had picked up during our day out and enjoy the peacefulness. Nora would see us sitting out there and bring out cushions for the chairs or a candle - she was so accomodating and very sweet - like a lovely Italian Auntie that you always wanted. The other guests we met were very nice - even made friends and exchanged info with a lovely couple from Canada. Nora makes a lovely breakfast every morning and gets up early to bake for the guests. The rooms are quite large - we had a kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. Everything is super clean, the kitchen even had the basics if you wanted to cook like pots and dishes and even a little convection type oven. Free wi-fi was great too - could sit outside or in your room and use the Internet. We celebrated our anniversary one day while we were there and Nora baked us a special heart shaped pastry for breakfast and lit a heart shaped candle for us - what a lovely gesture :-) We were there in October so we couldn't use it but did see that they have an awesome pool. I would highly recommend - I will remember it fondly forever as a highlight of beautiful Italy.

Room Tip: I would think any room here would be great :-)

I spent 3 days here and they were great! We chose Castellina because it was a central point to go to others cities like Siena and San Giminiano.
The place is beautiful and quiet. The owner is a sweetie. She is the one that makes the breakfast. Delicious. And extremely friendly regarding tips on places to eat and go.
Perfect for those who are looking for some romance. I'm going for sure again! Loved it!!
