We (my husband and I) stayed in Laticastelli for 5 nights in September. The place is really beautiful, cosy and you fell in a tuscan villa. Swimming pool area is great, and has a very beautiful view. The bedroom and the bathroom are large. Our bed was not confortable because it was tilted to one side. So sleep quality was not good enough.
We had a little problem with the air conditioner because the remote control batteries ran off. It was a little late, like 11 pm, we called reception and kindly asked for new batteries because it was really hot. Nicoleta seemed not to believe that the problem was the battery and was rude on the phone and when came to our room. She grabs the remote from my hands roughly and went out of the room stomping her feet. I was a little shocked. Maybe it's the italian way... I don't know... well, but she's not even italian he he. Than she went back with new batteries, I thanked her and she said you're welcome rudely again. I got shocked because she was so polite and friendly by email and the time we checked in.
There's no drain in the bathroom and there's a courtain in shower area. One night while I was taking a shower the courtain wasn't positioned properly and the floor was like a swimming pool!
Breakfast was a real disappointment. We felt like we were on a plane. Almost everything was in small packages, everything is industrialized. We were expecting fresh fruits and local ingredients from Tuscany. We got canned fruits and regular cheese and ham, even beeing in the land of the prosciutto and pecorino cheese. Croissant were soft, not crunchy.
The restaurant, when the breakfast is served has a beautiful view and staff is nice. We had dinner there twice: first time we had a delicious goat cheese, tomatoes and watercress salad for entry and then a delicious tartuffo sauce pasta. Second time I got a seafood pasta that was totally blend, my husband had a pasta as well that he didn't like. After that we didn't come back to the restaurant.
Location is great: you are very near Siena, that is a lovely town and has lots of nice places to have dinner. And you are very central, near the best areas to visit, like Val d'Orcia (amazing), Chianti, Monteriggioni, Colle di Val d'Elsa etc.
