We recently had a couple of nights at Villa Castiglione, which we used as a base from which to visit Florence. As some other reviewers have mentioned, it is hard to find. Our Tom Tom got completely confused. I think the problem is putting in the address as Impruneta. They should add coordinates on the hotel profile !!
Once you do find the hotel, you can reset your GPS and there will be no further problems.
We picked this hotel because the rooms looked nice, there was parking and it looked relatively easy to get into Florence from there. On all three counts the hotel was good.
The hotel building is beautifully restored and the rooms are large, a little unusually decorated, but delightful. I think some of the rooms must have a view all the way to Florence, ( we did not have a room on that side ) so ask for one of those !!
The place is primarily a functions centre, so the staff tend to be focused on the function if there is one on. However, that did not bother us.
It is a short drive down the hill to the closest town ( sorry have forgotten the name ), and there is free parking there, and buses to Florence for 1.4 euro. We had a very nice dinner at a Restaurant there, called Vera Napoli. Great service and reasonable prices .... try it.
You cannot get a hotel in Florence anywhere near as good as Villa Castiglione for the rates they charge. If you have a car and don't need to be in the centre, then we recommend this hotel.
Two other points to note are firstly that there is no lift, and secondly that the breakfast is pretty standard Italian fare, but nice and in an excellent dinning room.
