On a recent trip to Italy, my wife and I were happy to escape the crowds of Rome and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. When we arrived at Il Castagno, we knew we had picked the right place. It was just like the beautiful photos on the website. We stayed in the Leonardo room which was perfect for our needs, spacious, nicely appointed with modern bathroom and a great view out the windows. We ate in the restaurant and had a fantastic meal complete with Il Castagno 2011 Chianti Classico which was delicious. The breakfasts were excellent as well with everything you could want. Ana was a great hostess and made us feel at home. Next time we're in Tuscany we hope to stay here again!
