This spectacular boutique hotel feels like it is its own little village. It is so special and unique that I cannot compare it to any other resort. Our room was extremely large, probably 25 X 40 with high ceilings. The compartmentalized bathroom plus closets complete the suite. The beautiful furnishings, decor and view embellish your surroundings.
The staff made it clear they are there to provide you with anything and everything you would not just request, but that they think you might need. They were all helpful and pleasant. We stayed for dinner every night. We had tastings which included local foods and changed nightly. The servers could not do enough for us and certainly are a wonderful addition to the food and wine.
Though we spent two of the four days with a guide touring Tuscany, we had ample time to relax at the pool, walk the resort and just enjoy ourselves.
Though we drove to the resort from Florence, many of the other guests had a driver. Our GPS was on the money, until the detour due to a washed out bridge. We eventually arrived to a warm and gracious welcome. If you want to drink with dinner or are uncomfortable on windy unpaved roads, I suggest you dine at Castiglione del Bosco as many of the visitors when we were there did. Most of the other guests were friendly and had cocktails on the terrace nightly followed by an evening of fine dining. We went to the more casual restaurant for lunch.
For those who enjoy the type of resort I describe, Castiglion Del Bosco is not to be missed. We will return..
