Outstanding. We found the place by accident, then extended our stay, which was supposed to be overnight. It certainly feels like sleeping in a castle, with grounds to explore, a reading room, dinners prepared solely for the patrons 3 times a week, and a lovely breakfast with marmelades prepared at the estate and cakes from nearby. The hosts were amazing, and went out of their way to help, share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their (lesser explored) part of Toscana, and make sure our stay was enjoyable. Not a given in Italy.
As it is located on a dirt road in the outskirts of town, not known to every GPS-program, it is could be wise to have a map of the route before setting off.

Room Tip: The "deluxe" rooms (at a very reasonable price) are in the cosy, main building. There are cheaper doubles in an adjacent building (w/shared bath), apparently less appealing, as per another couple who stayed there before upgrading.

We are just back from 3 nights at the Castello San Fabiano and can only confirm the very positive evaluations. This place is magic ! The hosts are very welcoming and dedicated to making your stay one you will remember. They enthusiastically shared the history of the castle and its surrounding domain and recommended sites to visit and things to do. The Castle is ideally located : it is very quiet with breathtaking views of the surrounding hills from the breakfast room but at the same time within easy driving distance of many interesting historic and charming villages and cities. We had one dinner at the Castle and it was delicious with local salumi and ham, home-made pasta and vegetables from their garden. Home-made croissants, bread and jams as well as local cheese and ham are also served for breakfast. We will definitely be back.

We stayed one week, and had the time of our lives. We arrived exhausted and hungry, and were delighted that our hosts were willing to personally cook us dinner. This was just one of many, many unique and personal touches that the extremely kind family took in making our stay very amazing.

The breakfasts are made from scratch and delicious, and the same goes for the dinners. The rooms retain their old world charm, and have modern bathrooms. There is a nice library to relax in, and the art space is amazing. Fresh cut flowers adorn the spaces. The surrounding acres are pristine nature preserve set amidst open rolling hills. I loved watching the sun rise and seeing the forest animals come to life.

The day trips from here were easy and fun. The hosts shared many things to do and see in the region. We will gladly return!!!

Room Tip: Ooops, clicked on the Fitness Center and Room Service options by accident, and cannot unselect them. Neither is available here.

I was there for two days. The place is marvelous and the surroundings also are. Is a castle placed in the middle of crops, surrounded by nature - hills, trees, crops - ideal to breath pure air.
The food is excellent and the service is also great. The family that owns the house are very gentle and kind. Really good housekeeping.
Is not a "hotel", so you will find yourself more like in a family house. The place is very quiet so you can have time for meditation and reflection.
It is not far away from Siena (only 15 min. by car) so getting downtown is not that difficult.
Once you are there I would strongly recommend to visit the Museum of the "Duomo di Siena" is spectacular, you can't miss also the "Duomo" or Cathedral itself, a marvelous building full of history. Also the "Baptisterio" is very beautiful and you shouldn't miss it.
If you have the fortune to be there during the feast of "Palio di Siena" then there is an excellent opportunity to understand better italian culture, specially that of the Toscan region.
I hope this description helps for your future trips.
