Agriturismo Il Castagno
Ranked #9 of 126 Siena B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Il Castagno is one of the most beautiful places on earth. When we arrived Ana was there to very warmly greet us and made us feel extremely welcome. Her positive contribution to our experience cannot be overstated. She runs a very professional establishment. We stayed in the Giotto suite, which is exactly as it appears online . Elegantly beautiful, spacious, with an extraordinary bathroom. Eating at their restaurant is a culinary delight. When eating outside you overlook the beautiful vineyards with rolling hills while watching herds of horses in the distance. Francesco, (who looks like George Clooney's slightly older brother) treated us royally. Sami is an adorable skilled chef. Food, wine and olive oil exceptional. We highly recommend and cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Loved the Giotto suite

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!

Room Tip: Photos on the website of the Leonardo room are accurate - spacious and comfortable

We stayed at this beautiful villa in late April and found it had everything we wanted.

The setting is stunning! I took daily walks on the property. It has it's own vineyard with delicious wines, an olive orchard, a gorgeous pool and beautiful suites. We ate outside overlooking the vineyards and a herd of horses for breakfast, lunch and afternoon drinks. The food was outstanding including the "chef surprises".

To add to the fun, my daughter and I took a cooking class. They accommodated just the 2 of us at our convenience. The Chefs, Francesco and Sammy, were so much fun, all the while enjoying an aperol spritz. Also Anna was extremely friendly and helpful in handling all my reservation questions and providing wonderful itineraries to enjoy the area.

We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Il Castagno is a fantastic place in the middle of the Chianti vineyards and the scenic countryside of Tuscany. Siena is nearby as wel as the access to the main roads leading to Florence, Perugia and Montepulciano and Montalcino. Proprietor Ginevra and hostess Ana guarantee you a warm welcome and in the restaurant an experienced maitre d'hotel is taking care of you. The rooms are very beautifuly decorated. For those who want to spend a good time with family and friends near the swimming pool and/or for those who prefer to discover the surrounding wine regions, Castagno is the place to be!

I stay at this place for three nights and really loved the place, the rooms and the hostility. Staying at this place is one of the most relaxing and beautiful short-trip I could think of. The surrounding is just beautiful with all the vineyards and the view really is amazing. I am sure, you will love this place - especially going there as a couple.

This was our first time in Italy and Siena and it stole our heart. The entire experience was one of the best we have ever had and we have traveled the world. Starting with the incredible view, to the dedicated staff and beautiful accomodations it just doesn't get any better. We plan on returning and staying even longer. It is simply the best.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room and sleeping with the windows wide open is just wonderful.
