My husband and I have stayed at the Castelletto di Montebenichi 5 times since 2005 and each time it has been superb. It is ideally situated - 20 minutes to Siena, 30 minutes to Arezzo, one hour to Florence and spectacular short drives to many beautiful places in Tuscany - Peinza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Lucignano, Cortona - and on and on! But the truly exceptional thing about the Castelletto is the owner, Marco - he is a wonderful host who is so knowledgeable of Tuscany (and all of Italy) - he provides guests with great suggestions of things to do, places to visit and restaurants to go to. The Castelletto is so very comfortable - his staff is excellent - Barbara offers wine tours and cooking classes. The buffet breakfast is fresh and ample - in a lovely room with great views. The pool and gardens are picturesque and very relaxing. We feel as though we are "at home" when we stay here - and we cannot wait to go back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Castelletto di Montebenichi, a perfect spot for visiting Tuscany, located in the Chianti, half way between Siena and Arezzo. Staying at the Castelletto is a magic experience offered to a few guests only who will enjoy precious works of art, including period frescoes, archeological finds, sketches and antique paintings, drawings, sculptures, bronzes and ceramics. They will be caught up in a pleasant, unforgettable out-of-this-time atmosphere. In this ancient mansion, dating back to XII century, tradition and modern comfort are combined perfectly. Guests are encouraged to move free like in their own home in a comfortable and familar, yet elegant and exclusive environment. At a few steps in the park guests can enjoy a swimming pool, a small sauna, and a gym with a jacuzzi mini-pool along with a marvellous view over the surrounding hills and the valley. The Castelletto has no restaurant, but around the corner a wonderful "trattoria" called "L'Orciaia" offers tasty traditional Tuscan dishes. ... more less
