We stayed at this castle as part of a Groupon deal, and we had no idea of what we were getting into. I was pleasantly surprised. We had the smallest room, the Camino, but we thought it was warm and cozy. The bed wasn't as comfortable as ours at home, but that's part of the adventure of travel, I guess.
The staff was wonderful! They spoke excellent English and were gracious and warm. We would stay here again in an instant--the views are amazing, and the castle is gorgeous.
As a side note, the ROADS IN TUSCANY ARE NOTHING LIKE THE ROADS IN THE UNITED STATES. We are proficient map readers (not just GPS addicts) and found ourselves completely, totally, endlessly lost. More than once, mind you. The streets are often unlabeled, and so are the maps. We have heard that GPS might not be reliable in the area, but if we would go back I would pay the extra money for one in the car. The day we left we were eating dinner in the restaurant, and two American women came in. They looked disheveled and very tired. It turned out they had been lost in Tuscany for TWO DAYS. They weren't even kidding; their GPS had failed them. It's that kind of a place.
Once we figured out how to go from town to town (look for your next town on the roundabout signs), we were much more successful with our travel. The castle is a great place to see Florence and Pisa. We also parked our car in Florence and took the high-speed train to Venice for the day.
So, to sum up: Great place to stay, great staff, great location. Tricky place to travel until you get used to it!
