Castello di Bibbione
Reviewed January 2, 2011

My partner and I planned a very last minute trip to Tuscany and Il Castello di Bibbione was able to accommodate us on short notice. We initially requested two nights but ended up staying a third, we were enjoying our trip and stay so much. They gave us 20% off the posted prices as well. We stayed in la Quercia, which was more than big enough for we two and our two cats (animals accepted!). The apartment was clean, cosy and charming. All equipped and we had everything we needed, even coffee. The only disappointment was that breakfast is not included in the price, and at 10 EUR, we decided to get breakfast elsewhere. In December, there were very few clients so the estate was very tranquil and relaxed - just what we needed! We took several walks around the estate and through the countryside; just gorgeous. Ask about an Etruscan tomb further up the hill. The staff were very nice and helpful. They spoke English, French and Spanish - communication was not a problem. We stupidly left our boots at the apartment and they kindly shipped them to us. We also purchased products from their farm - two bottles of wine and a bottle of olive oil for approximately 35 EUR. They also threw in a pot of blackberry jam for free because these were about to expire (we could have taken as many pots as we wanted, actually). The location is excellent, with Firenze and Siena 30-45 minutes away by car, and not far from San Casciano, a small village. We enjoyed our stay and I hope we can return sometime.

This was a gorgeous villa and we had a perfect time with friends! Even from the bathroom the views were breathtaking! We thought that the facilities would be older based on the age of the property but the kitchen was updated and all the bedrooms were perfect! Shower pressure was amazing. No complaints, and even though it was warm days the place stayed cool and comfortable.

A group of eight of us traveled to the Tuscany region in September. We stayed at Castello di Bibbione in the Villa Il Poggio for a week. It was an amazing experience from having our own private villa with pool and exercise room to great views of Chianti. The villa was very clean and we had all of the amenities from home. It was quiet and very secure. Although we were in the country, we were close to the Autostradale and Autostrada. This allowed us to do day trips by car to the various Tuscan villages.

All of the staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations to restaurants and hiring drivers (Chianti Drivers) for a night into Florence and a wine dinner at a winery. We also took the opportunity to do a cooking class in our villa with Chef Mattisse. It was a great learning and food experience.

I would highly recommend staying at Castello di Bibbione.

Combine the breathtaking views of Tuscany with the best service that I have ever had and you have a small idea of the greatness of Castello di Bibbione. The staff of three beautiful and intelligent young ladies was exceptional.

We had a wonderful stay at Castello Bibbione. Our party had both Niccolo Genestre and La Toretta. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The location is beautiful, with views of vineyards and Tuscan hills. We stayed in late August and spent the mornings and early afternoons on day-trips to Pisa, Siena and Florence, which are all a short drive away. We returned in the afternoon to use the pool. The pictures on the website do not do the pool justice. It is quite large and has a beautiful view of the countryside. Was a very nice break from the heat. The kitchen and dining room in Niccolo Geneste were large enought that we were able to have a cooking class for seven comfortably. The breakfast that is available in one of the common areas was very nice. We had made a reservation one morning for 7:30 a.m., but several of us didn't make it until 9:30. Despite that we were the only ones that had reserved breakfast that day, the gentleman in charge of the room patiently waited for all of us.

The only issue we had was that the accomodations were very hot. This is no surprise given that it was the end of August, but we were getting bees and wasps inside when we tried to leave all of the windows open so had to keep them shut much of the time. The fans supplied in each room made it sufficiently comfortable at night. Make sure you get Vape plug-ins from the store to keep the mosquitos away.

The service by the women working in the office was really wonderful. They assisted on several occassions with restaurant suggestions, bus schedules, etc. They made an extra effort to obtain whatever we needed.

The location is great. A five to ten minute drive to San Casciano and a few other small towns where we went for dinner.

We would definitely stay here again.

- furniture is old, not just antique and uncomfortable and feels dusty
- same for the bedding, very lousy
- there are no pool towels
- kitchen is poorly equipped, no microwave, ancient dishwasher
- the place feels in desperate need for a remodelling
- location of the villa is noisy close to the main road
- forgot to do the mid-week cleaning although already paid for
The front desk staff was friendly and even very helpful when my car broke down, but the quality of the facility does not justify the very high price that they charge.
