We have just returned from a wonderful few days at Castel Pietraio. We stayed in a small but comfortable apartment, with a kitchen/living room and double bedroom, located in the old castle. What made it so special was the small shared terrace immediately outside the room, built into the ramparts, which was a perfect place to eat in the mornings and evenings. There were also shaded outside seating areas in the courtyard immediately below. The whole place is kept exceptionally clean and is maintained very well. There is no restaurant for lunch or evening meals, but you can pay for breakfast. So in this sense it's more like a B&B or collection of apartments - perfect for families. We paid for breakfast on the first day, but afterwards it was more convenient and cheaper to make it ourselves. The location is superb: less than 10 minute drive to Monteriggioni, a few minutes drive to villages with small shops and excellent restaurants (e.g. the Futura Osteria in Abbadia a Isola, where we had our best meal in Tuscany), and 25 minutes drive to Siena. The pool is large and well maintained.
