“Amazing Luxury Experience”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Castiglion Del Bosco is much more than a hotel. It is an ancient village that has been meticulously rebuilt and transformed. Every detail has been thought out and executed beautifully from the huge stone pool with a view of Tuscany, the bocci ball court under the cypress trees, the huge kitchen garden, the ancient church with rare frescoes to the buildings themselves. The resort and rooms are incredibly gorgeous and comfortable.
We requested a terrace suite and were upgraded to larger suite without a terrace. It was stunning with an attention to detail that I have never seen before. The main room had high coved ceilings that were hand painted and a massive stone fireplace. The bedroom had high ceilings an enormous four poster bed with C & C linens making the most luxurious bed. Although much of the furniture were antiques, there was no sense of mustiness, but instead there was a clean and fresh feeling to the rooms. The bathroom had acres of cream marble counters with lots of drawers, windows on two walls, a free standing tub and a walk in closet. Details included a red leather covered the flatscreen tv and safe, a high end espresso maker and huge oil paintings. At night there were homemade cookies by your bed and other afternoons homemade candies and always bottle water.
Not wanting to leave the room in the morning we paid the extra 10 euros to have our complementary breakfast brought to our room. You can order anything you want including fresh ricotta and honey, pancakes, baskets of to die for pastries, etc. It was amazing.
It was very hot, so we spent a lot of time by the pool. Marco, the pool guy was great. Very friendly and helpful. The pool towels were amazing--huge, thick and incredibly soft, custom made by C & C.
We did the horse back riding outing. I was disappointed to find out it was not on the property (we got very lost trying to find it) but it was a fabulous way to see the surrounding countryside. The horses were healthy and well trained. We rode for three hours past farms, castles, vineyards and forests. It was challenging and lots of fun, plus our guide was very informative.
We also did the $75 a person wine tasting. It seemed like a lot of money at first, but it was well worth it. It starts with a tour of the vineyards and winery and then generous tasting of 5 good wines and appetizers.
The spa is nice, I had a private steam room and shower area, but the massage was just OK.
The food at both the formal restaurant and bistro was very good. The service was very attentive and friendly. The pricing was very fair. In the darling bistro they serve little buckets of fresh garden vegetables and a grilled bread with their own olive for dunking. There is a store to the side where we bought a bottle of wine which they served to us while we played Bocci ball!
This hotel is in the league of the very best Amans and Four Seasons, but with a style all its own. Expensive, but very much worth the splurge.

Planning our yearly vacation to Italy last year (October) my husband and I decided to try a 'new' hotel/resort in Tuscany. Loving privacy and seclusion we picked this spot in its own private Borgo! After a long drive in the evening we were greeted most cordially and thrilled to arrive in a very special and elegant place. The rooms are understated luxury and tastefully decorated --- the bathroom was outstanding. The owners provide many extra touches and treats that are clearly well thought out. We both loved the resort's own Ferragamo Bath products - Tuscan Soul.

The property has 2 excellent restaurants and we frankly ate on site our entire 5 night stay. The resort has extensive hiking trails and an excellent (and panoramic) fitness studio. The spa is small but perfect and expertly run.

The views from the infinity pool and the breakfast terrace are sublime. On one day we walked to Montalcino (about 3 hours) and it is a short drive to the highlights of the Val d'Orcia including Pienza and of course some excellent wineries.

The hotel's staff are professional and hospitable. The resort clearly attracts an overseas clientele but we experienced no condensation or pretense --- simply a universal graciousness on the part of all the staff which was in keeping with the remarkable surroundings.


Do we recommend Castiglion del Bosco? Well, we're returning this fall....

Room Tip: We were in the "lowest" category room and it was frankly outstanding in size and in furnis...

My husband and I just spent three nights at CdB and it was just fabulous. Everything was exactly what luxury is supposed to be. Absolute perfection. The cooking class was fantastic. Most of the vegetables served in the hotel come from the garden on site. I still dream about the pomodoro sauce. The winery tour is very, very cool and we enjoyed getting to see where the grapes are grown. The rooms are huge and the Ferragamo bath products are a lovely addition. You have a great view from just about anywhere in the hotel. It was impeccable and I can't wait to go back.

We've spent our lives travelling to some of the most spectacular places and this now surpasses them all for pure beauty and service. Sig Ferragamo has transformed this 2500 plus acre estate of Brunello di Montalcino wines to an intoxicating respite for lovers of life, good taste stunning interiors fine wines fast cars Tuscan countryside and onsite-produced gastronomy heaven. The service was impeccable, thoughtful attentive and immediate. Nothing was too much trouble. We met their group and events manager Sara who was a delight, anything was possible and nothing was too much trouble, so we intend to return for a planned celebration. The smiles and genuine warmth of affection from all the talented staff oozed charm and attention to detail. The private villas have views to die for and some with their own extra garden-house rooms (akin to a small villa each themselves) where you can park a nanny or accompanying parents close to hand. The resort is in fact more your own personal village with a tiny chapel, castle ruins, piazza, osteria, terraces.. Perfect for a wedding if you have a daughter and friends worth spoiling, or just like us a simple escape where the finer things in life all come together in one place. This place is impeccable quality at value. Take a soft top car to breath in the countryside.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are to die for. The 5 bedroomed villa is buggy ride overlooking the golf course an...

Spontaneous siblings (& significant others) trip to Tuscany was truly unforgettable. This "resort" was top notch, with impeccable attention to detail and a service level beyond expectations. For example, my husband left his cappuccino on the breakfast table to use the restroom, the waiters promptly ran over, and made him a new one so it would be warm once he returned! The food is unbelievale at both restaurants (try the chef's appetizer tasting), and the view will keep you entertained for hours. The dirt road, and off-the-beaten path roads made it all the more special. Tip: make sure to book your activities in advance, as they fill up. You will barely see another soul during your stay -and you will feel like the only people in the world at this little piece of heaven in beautiful Italia.

Room Tip: The suites are worth the splurge.

It is outrageous that they charge their own guests more for their produced wine them any other place in the region. We bought a bottle for half of the price in an enoteca than what we paid in the hotel. Everything is priced well above other Tuscany hotels and restaurants we were. We happened to meet the person that was organising a wine tasting in the hotel and he mentioned that in most hotels they do it for free, but at Castiglion they wanted to charge us 70 euros per person! Only to visit their wine cellar, another 70 euros!
Bedrooms are huge and nice. Food was very good, but We felt treated like we were idiots...

Four couples-all family(no children)-went to celebrate a birthday in the Tuscan countryside. This trip ranks up there as one of the best ever taken and this fabulous property and the incredible attention to deatail from the staff made the trip perfect. There are very few times where I would say that my expectations were surpassed by such a large margin.
We took four suites, for five nights, and they were all exquisitly appointed and much larger than anticipated. The food, the new golf course and the winery all added to our enjoyment! Day trips to Florence and Montelcino were organized by the strong concierge staff, and they went off with any problems whatsoever.
We will definately go back to this stunning property.
