Castellare De' Noveschi
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This hotel was booked for us as part of a trip across Chianti. We could not have been more pleased. The bedroom was amazing, it was in an old hunters lodge that has been very sympathetically refurbished. The young woman we dealt with could not have been more helpful. The gardens were lovely, as was the pool, with lots of comfy seats to rest and read. The very nice lounge had cake, sweets and drinks freely available. All in all it felt very luxurious and we felt very well looked after.

San Sano in Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany was almost our final stop in Italy, but was one of our absolute favorites. This B&B was, by far, the nicest place we stayed at on our honeymoon in Italy.

Our hostess Donatella was amazingly friendly, patient and helpful. As soon as I mentioned that it was my wife's birthday, she immediately brought us a bottle of Prosecco. She was always available via phone and offered advice whenever we asked. Also, they offered an extraordinary spa treatment in a building dating back 800 years, in what was one of the coolest experiences on our trip. And they gave us a complementary visit to one of the local vineyards, offering a variety of different Chianti wines and olive oils.

When you're driving here, make sure to use your GPS - it will be impossible to find without it. The town is very small and the GPS might not recognize the address, but you'll be fine as long as you type in "San Sano" in Gaiole in Chianti and the street name. One thing we'd recommend is driving out to Siena and exploring it for a few hours at least.

The views here are breathtaking - everywhere you look, all you see is rolling, beautiful hills, filled with vineyards and olive trees. There is one local restaurant within a three minute walk, called La Grotta della Rana, and the food there was fantastic.

This part of our trip was the most relaxing. We'd absolutely recommend it to any of our friends!

A warm welcome by the ladies in charge,a very well appointed junior suite,room service with a hearty breakfast! This is a very good place to explore the Chianti area and even the whole of Tuscany.I strongly recommend it.Only comment,the bed mattress could be better.

Room Tip: Junior suites are the best.Spacious,with antique furniture and a very pleasant ambience.

hands down a great hotel. The service, staff, location, rooms and grounds and tiny little town of San Sano were all excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. We booked what we thought would be a "typical" tiny Italian hotel room, but Castellare di Noveschi upgraded us a 2 story, 2 bedroom suite with a huge living room... for pennies compared to other hotels we stayed at. Absolutely perfect. We are already planning our next vacation back to San Sano.

We had a really excellent experience in Castellare de Noveschi. The hotel is located in the little town of San Sano and has great views from all the windows. The atmosphere of the hotel is really special and is decorated with very good Tuscan style. You´ll feel like in a castle. We got our breakfast served in bed! We wished we would have stayed there longer! We´ll come back to enjoy the pool. The area of Chianti was the best of Tuscany. Visit the Castle of Brolio nearby.

Wonderfully peaceful stay in a beautiful small village,in deep chianti country, breakfast served on a silver tray by the pool, an incredible wine therapy experience (candles, wines salts, wine, music, bubbles). Two great restaurants within a stones through and surrounded by vineyards (and tasting opportunities) and stunning old Tuscan towns.
