“Castelvecchi - has to be seen to be believed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2010

Myself, along with my wife and three children stayed for seven nights in Castelvecchi for a family wedding. The first night was spent in a room in the main building which consisted of a large double bed and three singles in a large room, with a bathroom and shower on the side, which was clean and comfortable. The remainder of the time was spent in an apartment on the top floor of the main building. This had two large bedrooms either side of a huge lounge/dining room with a big bathroom and modest kitchen. We found that the hotel was clean, the staff were friendly, the surroundings were absolutely beautiful, and it ticked another box in what was a wondertul break.

In the picturesque, well maintained grounds is a swimming pool, that was a welcoming sight from the hot weather, and a god-send for the children. In the courtyard is a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We stayed self-catering and never ate at the restaurant, but the food looked nice and seemed reasonably priced for the area we were in. The hotel is set in acres of vineyards and situated a short distance from a few average sized towns, which have very good shops. cafes and restaurants.

Although the wedding was not held at the hotel, there was an evening party held on the outside terrace. Even though the drinks and entertainment were sort and provided by the newly-weds, the hotel still bent over backwards to accomodate our every need. Although there were nearly 90 of us in the wedding party and the hotel had other guests, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them to sort out.

It was my second stay there, we enjoyed hospitality and facilities (although tennis court requires some upgrade). It is a great location to travel around Chianti region but also to visit Siena or Florence. Unforgettable views and silence...

Most of all we loved great simple Tuscan cuisine of Ermano and Sandra and excellent wine selection.

Trully recommended for a short escape from everyday's life.

We went for a wedding. The hotel buildings, swimming pool and location were fantastic, but the staff were unaccommodating and rude.

We take note of the comment, but cannot be accepted without details, as part of the staff. Our attitude is far to be rude and unaccommodating.

We stayed three nights in two cottage bedrooms, separated by a living room with fireplace. The cottage rooms are more rustic than the rooms in the main villa, but clean and comfortable nonetheless. On the main square, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner and never got disappointed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and we felt comfortable during the entire stay. The large swimming pool was very nice to cool off in, when not soaking up the sun. We tried the wine produced on Castelvecchi and also bought a few bottles to take home – good Chianti D.O.C wine. The cold breakfast buffet was included. Though it was basic, it was very good. Castelvecchi is a very well-managed agriturismo with all amenities you need to live la dolce vita! Can't wait to go back!

said my fiance, when we came out into the garden the first morning.
And I am sure that we will, as Castelvecchi is a place which you immediately start to love. It is a beautiful, large, well kept Tuscan villa, situated on a hill and surrounded by beautiful garden and vineyards. We stayed in an apartment on the second floor, so we could enjoy a breath-taking view on Radda and its surroundings every morning, sipping our caffelatte:) In the evening we used to light the fire, as we had a fireplace as well:) The staff was very helpful and not intrusive. It is an ideal place for those who want to relax and sightsee.

Our family has stayed at Castelvecchi for the last 15 years, starting when our daughter was 2 years old up to last summer at age 17. It is a family tradition. The grounds are lovely and classic Italian with a wonderful courtyard area and an antique olive press in the middle. the fattoria is surrounded by vineyards and is well located near Radda. It is very quiet. The staff have always been accommodating. We have stayed in different apartments over the years. They are simply furnished and equipped with kitchens, We stay for one week. We have explored other options in the area, but always return to Castelvecchi for its special charm.

This summer was our eighth stay at Castelvecchi and it continues to be one of our favorite European destinations. The staff is welcoming and accommodating and the apartments are spacious and clean. The location cannot be beat, the views are unforgettable and a perfect place for sunset walks and leisurely afternoons by the pool. All in all it's a wonderful vacation destination, with great towns in the surrounding area, and comes highly recommended from Californians.
