“Beautiful venue, comfortable”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Castiglion Fiorentino is a lovely small community, and Residence Le Santucce is a great place to stay if you're thinking of visiting there. We had a lovely unit with a gorgeous view. It seemed like we were the only guests at the time so it was incredibly quiet. It had AC and fast wifi. I don't think I've slept that well for a very long time--we are looking into buying the same mattress!

This was our 4th year in a row coming to Residence Le Santucce and we could not be more satisfied. As with each visit, the Tanganelli and Fabianelli families offered their genuine hospitality to make sure we were comfortable, safe and happy. Even though Castiglion Fiorentino (inside the walls) is a charming destination in itself, we also used the apartment as our 'home base' to do day trips throughout Toscana and Umbria. With the railroad station within a short commute away, leave the car in the (safe) parking lot and venture to Firenze or Orvieto or even Rome...or ask Alfeo for a ride to the station - he's always available to help with anything.

The day before our trip ended, we had electrical problems with our rental car. A telephone call away was Alfeo (co-owner) to the rescue. He not only diagnosed the problem, but called a service tech to get us going again (this was 9:00pm Saturday night)...and we had 2 hot pizzas in the trunk that needed quick rescue.

There are truly no words to describe the care, attention and time given to us (or to ANY vacationer) during our one month stay. You will feel like 'familia' as soon as you step into any of the apartments at Residence Le Santucce.

There are 3 very modern and fully-stocked grocery stores in the 'lower' town ready to cater to your shopping needs. Pay special attention to the pasta on the shelves...and make sure you pick up some with the "Fabianelli" label. Luca Fabianelli is very proud of his award-winning local pasta company...using the finest water and Semolina flour - and rightfully so.

Thank you to Alfeo and Miranda...Luca and Luciella...and especially precious Ginevra (2 yrs. old and growing) for making our 4th year as special as our first. Ciao to you all. J&B from Phoenix

Room Tip: Apt. #7, with its private patio overlooking the valley is a must. Kitchen facilities included.

My husband and I just got back from hosting a week-long writing retreat at Le Santucce and we couldn't possibly have chosen a better location. Castiglion Fiorentino is an utterly charming Italian hill town that is, thankfully, off the beaten tourist track. It has plenty of excellent restaurants and unique shops, all within easy walking distance of the Residence. Although this venue is right in town, the location is quite peaceful, which made it a perfect location for us to get some serious writing done. In addition, Le Santucce is located on the main train line between Florence and Rome, which made it incredibly easy for our workshop participants to arrive at their destination.

I can't say enough about the owners of this property, the Tanganelli family. As an event organizer, they made my job so easy!! Although the train station is within easy walking distance from the Residence, our host, Alfeo, picked up each and every one of our weary travelers as they arrived--an unexpected service that was very much appreciated. On the first night we were able to arrange an amazing, home-cooked welcome dinner of typical Tuscan dishes for our group, which we enjoyed on a beautiful terrace while we watched the sun set over the Chiana valley. In the mornings we were provided with a lovely breakfast, which always included a delicious cake or pastry baked by Alfeo's daughter, Luisella.

Alfeo always went above and beyond to help us and make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. On our free day he took us all to the train station for our various outings, he helped us buy groceries at the local market, and, when one of our participants had a dental emergency, he even arranged a dental appointment for her and then brought her to and from it.

Every room of Le Santucce is unique and beautiful, and almost all have breath-taking views. All the rooms, from the largest (which is very large indeed) to the smallest (which isn't all that small) had beautiful and creative touches. Many of our participants mentioned to me how much their rooms surpassed their expectations.

I could go on and on, but my recommendation is to make Le Santancce your home base in Tuscany. You will not regret it!

Room Tip: Anyway, if you are traveling with 2 or more people, I'd recommend room #13. It's huge and be...

Residence Le Santucce welcomed my husband and myself with open arms when we arrived for the writers' retreat we had looked forward to for many months. Not only does the Residence itself possess marvelously quirky and quaint spaces in which to live and work, but the owners have redefined hospitality. Alfeo and Miranda and their family graciously shepherded us to and from the train station, provided wonderful breakfasts featuring delicious Italian coffee, and made us feel that we had been personally invited into their home. The Residence is located on a quiet street with several restaurants. Shopping and amazing views are well within walking distance. Each room is different, some with kitchens, all clean with comfortable bedding and modern bathrooms. Every morning the view from our room astonished us with beauty and tranquility.

Charming renovated convent, every room different so a variety of options, including some with kitchenettes. Warm, helpful and kind hosts. Alfeo picked us up and took us back to the train station at the end of our stay. Beautiful views across the valley. Located in the hilltop town of Castiglion Fiorentino, not as touristy as some of the other hill top towns, but just as lovely with winding, narrow streets.

I came to Hotel Le Santucci with a friend for a week in June for a writer's retreat. There were a dozen of us in single and double rooms around the hotel, which is a restored 13th century convent. The restoration was done with great skill, so that every room has its own quirky, delightful elements: multiple levels, odd windows or miniature apses, as well as beautiful beamed wooden ceilings. Everything is in traditional Tuscan style, and the feel of the place is both ancient and modern. An ancient aesthetic with a modern cleanliness and functionality. The light is beautiful, the views stunning.

The hosts are kind, almost prescient of our needs, generous and pleasant. I can't imagine a better place. Clean comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, lots of interesting places to work, beautiful country walks as well as the historic city center right outside the door. Only my sense of gratitude to our hosts stops me keeping this a treasured secret.

Room Tip: All the rooms are designed to be interesting, with different levels or interesting architecture. Ma...

We had a wonderful visit with a tastefully decorated room and a beautiful view of the valley. Residence Le Santucce is in a great location to explore the surrounding towns and countryside. Definitely nice to have a car if possible. Alfeo, Miranda, Luisella and Luca became friends and took great care of us during our week long stay.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony view of the valley is nice!
