“Een oud kasteel......”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

A holiday in a caste, it sounds great. But, the times have changed. When people slept in castles, there were no heatings, no badrooms. And this is a castle. So, no heating, 1 set of sheets, poor beds (really!), musquitos, bugs, etc. The castle is beautiful to watch, but better sleep in a hotel. Because, this is really not a hotel. It is cold (although outside it is warm), moist, and the rooms are to big. To big you think? Yes, because there is no heating, you have to walk from your bed down the stairs on the cold stone floor to the small bathroom. There is a fireplace, but you may not use it.
It is a wonderful castle to see, but drive along and find yourself a hotel.

Montegufoni dates back to the 13th century and has been converted to self-catering vacation apartments, meaning maid service and daily linens are not included. The rooms are huge and what you would expect a medieval castle to look like. Plus each apartment is equipped with a stove and refrigerator, dishes, etc. so that you can prepare meals there if you prefer. There is a bar and restaurant on site with a set menu each day and a good value. In addition, there are several good restaurants in the neighboring villages. The grounds of the castle are beautiful. There is a lemon tree grove, wisteria arbor, various flower gardens, a pool, grotto, with everything well manicured. The castle has many areas to explore. Wifi is available on the lobby balcony, in the lobby, and at the outside dining area. The castle's location is perfect for touring Tuscany or going further out with many beautiful hill towns within a 2 hour drive. This is wine country with lots of vintners offering tastings in breath taking locations. Arrangements can also be made to take a horse drawn wagon to the wine trail! The staff was very helpful with lists of places to see and things to do. We received a parking ticket, which the staff helped sort out for us. Without a doubt, this was memorable place to which I would love to return.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are spectacular, and the staff is very helpful with trying to meet requ...

The hotel was terrrific and a perfect location for touring Tuscany. The views were spectacular.
The restaurant and restaurant staff were very accommodating. Remember that it is not a hotel so there is not daily maid service but the views and the castle were worth it. The rooms were very big with a kitchen and refrig.

Forget the poor reviews regarding the castle...those people don't deserve such a special place. This was my third stay in the castle (the last was 9 years ago) and it is still my favourite place. If you are looking for a modern luxury base then this is not it. There is no elevator for example...it is a genuine medieval castle that I feel privileged to have spent some special family holidays in. If you can, stay in the "Galleria"...you have your own ballroom (!!!!) and a room filled with frescos by Severini. Bloody brilliant!!!

We recently stayed here for three nights in July. This castle/manor is a beautiful place to stay with absolute character and charm, great gardens and pool area, is quite acceptable/cool at night even in the height of summer due to its elevation. The staff and owners were wonderful and friendly and went out of their way to make people happy. Remember this is an ancient building so don't expect the Hilton but do expect beauty, history, very comfortable rooms/apartments, peace and quiet and more. We will definately stay here again and is a great base for a Tuscany stay with or without a family. Having its own little bar and restaurant was a blessing after a long day sightseeing and then lounging by the pool just made it better. Free wifi in the main hall and very helpful and informative english speaking hosts with lots of ideas and literature on things to do. You won't regret it. Courtyard noise was minimal and didn't bother us, but if you want complete solitude consider room location in castle, staff will advise you.

For a week at the end of April, Castello di Montegufoni was our base for exploring the Tuscan countryside and small walled villages plus Florence. We found it delightful! We love history and to be able to reside in this magnificent castle in an apartment was perfect for us. Each apartment is different, but all are appointed with everything one needs for comfort and cooking. Ours was two levels with an old stone spiral staircase connecting the huge bedroom with balcony and views to the lower sitting room and kitchen area. In the middle of the spiral staircase, access to the bathroom with gunnels for windows was charming! Outside our kitchen area was another sitting area very private in the lower gardens, but not far from the amazing grotto! Around every corner of the grounds was something new to admire, and we so enjoyed our sunset cocktails with new friends on the huge balcony adjacent to the main sculptured garden on the main level! The bougainvillea archway on that level was gorgeous and just starting to come in full bloom while we were there!

The staff was most friendly and helpful and the groundskeeper a delightful man. We explored a lot of the countryside and Tuscan towns but one day chose just to stay at the castle taking walks and relaxing there. The small towns nearby have fresh produce and very friendly people too. If you like to be away from the city but within driving or bus connection, this castle is ideal. It was a most memorable week partly because we were staying in the castle. The only difficulty we had was finding it in our rental car from Rome airport. Even our GPS was confused. However, after programming in the castle as home, we always found our way back after days of exploration. We highly recommend Castello di Montegufoni with great memories!

A castle with all the things you think a castle should have, secret passage ways, beautiful gardens, amazing views of the Tuscan country side and frescos everytime you looked up! I have done extensive travelling in my life so I wasn't expecting the normal comforts of my American homeland but I was pleased with the amenities. We love to buy local at the markets and have our own breakfast and bring a picnic lunch so the kitchen was perfect to meet our needs. Everything was there we needed pots,pans, dishes, towels. The little garden area outside our door was perfect for a meal. What was really great was the proximity to Florence. Just a short 20 min drive by car or bus and you were in one of the top cities of the world. This was my families first time in Europe and I think it really gave them a taste of all that Tuscany can offer. The Castello was also nicely located to reach any of the other great Tuscan towns, Pisa, Lucca, San Giginiminao (however you spell that) and of course Siena.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the apartments on the property across from the Castle but the view from our wind...
