“A brilliant villa in a beautiful location”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The villa is incredible - plenty of space and with everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday in the heart of Tuscany but in striking distance of the major sightseeing towns. Leonardo and team could not have been more helpful and did all that they could to facilitate our stay.
For runners, the hills of Chianti make for excellent training....but get out early before it gets too hot. The pool is a perfect cool down!
Highly recommend the villa. Book before you travel if you want to sample the owners wine and olive oil.

The pictures are beautiful, BUT the reality is even more beautiful. The host was wonderful and helpful.The villa was clean, very spacious, well-equipped.
Looking out over the olive groves and vineyards, listening to the church bells mark the hours in the medieval village across the valley, sipping on the villa's excellent wine, and planning the next day's trip to another Tuscan hill town, or maybe Florence or Siena. Or maybe just take another nap. Or maybe walk again around the old stone villa, just admiring the architecture and history of the place.
Maybe it gets better than this.
But I don't know where.

“perfect tuscan holiday”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The villa il castellaccio is an exceptional place to stay. First, it is centrally located to all of the sites in and around the Tuscany area. It is a short drive to Greve, or to Figline to pick up the train to Florence. It is also a reasonable drive to Siena, Montalcino, Montalpuciano, Lucca, Pisa and Cinque Terre. The villa was clean, in excellent shape, and there was plenty of hot water.

The villa is exactly as described, only better. We were a group of 8 in the villa, with another couple staying in the nearby apartment. There was plenty of room for all of us in the villa, and the pool was a refreshing resting spot after a long day of sightseeing. There are 5 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There is a living room and a sitting room each large enough for all of us. The lower level has the kitchen and dining room and laundry area. The kitchen has an Americano coffee maker, but there are only dry goods supplies in the kitchen, no foods, spices or herbs. This is for health reasons. There is a dish washer and Leonardo supplies the soap for it. There is also a very large dining room, big enough for at least 10 people.

There is also a clothes washer, also with soap, but no dryer. There are drying racks and in the hot sun, clothes dry in only a few hours. There are showers and a bathroom by the pool for convenience. WIFI was excellent.

Those are the facts, but the real benefit of the villa is Leonardo as the host of the villa. He is one of the nicest gentlemen one could meet. He is very accommodating and responsive to our requests. He arranged for sightseeing tours for half our group in four different excursions. Each one conducted by an English speaking guide, who was charming and informative. Leonardo also arranged for a chef to come in on the last night of our stay and cooked us a fantastic dinner. We may have had our best meal of Tuscany at the villa.

Leonardo speaks English very well, although he is modest about his ability, and we had no problem communicating with him. Our cell phones were a problem in Italy so we were sometimes out of touch with him, but he visits the villa often enough and answers emails very quickly.

“True Tuscan Delight!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Gorgeous views, tranquil location and wonderful amenities made our holiday truly memorable. Leonardo was a delight and so helpful and accommodating. From organizing tours or reservations, or just tips on where to go, he is a wealth of information. The villa was not only beautiful, it was clean and well maintained. Can't wait to go back!

“Heaven in Tuscany”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Villa il Castellaccio was heaven on earth and made our stay in Tuscany such a pleasure. The grounds are so well kept, clean and breathtaking. The interior was very clean and well stocked. We could not have asked for more and the location was ideal. I definitely will try to stay here on my next trip to Tuscany.

“It was amazing!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a group of 11 friends and family. The Villa was truly charming and the location was perfect for trips to any great villages and to Florence too. Leonardo arranged a winery tour for us, which was delightful. He also was a charming host and was most helpful in arrangements and providing information to our group. The highlight was the tour of theLord winery below the Villa . Would highly recommend staying here and hope to get back another time!!

“Perfect, as always.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I have stayed at this property several times, although this was my first time in one of the smaller apartments instead of the large villa also on the property. We thought the apartment was perfect for the four of us, and enjoyed the use of the large communal pool. We will definitely return again!

Liked best: Location! Also, the helpfulness and friendliness of the hosts, Leonardo and Roxane. Roxane has a wealth of knowledge of the history of the region and is willing to share.
Liked least: I admit the mattresses are a little too hard for my liking and the pillows a bit too thin, but this is not a huge issue!
