I have stayed at Castello di Tocchi numerous times over the last 10 years, on tours and individually with friends. The setting is a charming medieval hamlet overlooking amazing forestland. It has always been a tranquil experience for me. The apartments are a bit rustic, but they are comfortable, clean and cozy. It is wonderful to stay there as the rooms are lacking only in the often unnecessary fixtures of our hectic lives…phone, television, internet and other annoyances. The Food at Cucina delle Castello is fabulous, I gained five pounds:) the meals were all ancient Tuscan recipes and the cool thing was they served a lot of local produce. I took cooking classes that were to die for. I also spent time on many guided excursions, hiking, biking, or by car. The best of course are the horse guided tours! Vittorio, the owner was always happy to accommodate our ideas and plans. He has extensive knowledge of the history and culture of the area and his kee sense of humor had us laughing so hard we had stomach aches from laughing so hard!! Lots of fond memories of an exceptional vacation. I recently saw that he has been rated a top guide worldwide by reputable sources.
Another item that I would comment on is that If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton and big city bling experience, this is not the place for you. If you want a truly unique, cultural experience then you will love it!. A place that keeps it real!!! This place rocks if you want top-notch accommodations. Happy Travels:)
