it's actually build inside the medieval walls of the upper town and the main door opens on the street where every year hundreds of people attend a medieval dinner. Book well in advance if you want to sleep there during the medieval dinner weekends as it's very small and family-owned.

This place has so many natural charms. It's a heritage building on the edge of a hilltop town with sweeping views over the valley. This makes for a memorable experience. The decor inside is cluttered, eclectic and, a little, folksy. The bathrooms on the rooms are modern and recently renovated, but the beds are narrow, hard and a bit spartan. The breakfast buffet was a little spare but very good quality.

When ever you are in Tuskany, Italy,ake sure you visit Certaldo Alto and have a meal on the terrace of the Albergo the view makes it apart from good Italian food a special experience.

My mom and I did a trip around Tuscany by train in October and found that our "spur-of-the-moment" spontaneity wasn't always in our favour when using public transport. Hence, the day we had a route planned out ahead of us, the last thing we contemplated were worker strikes and ultimately being held up in a little town we had expected only to be a transfer stopover...but the next train never came. Nor did any buses. Infact, that day, unless we deliberately tried to call up a taxi, we weren't going anywhere, and this is what we like to call...fate! Fate led us to find this beautiful hotel with antique tuscan charm. Perched up on the hill top in the historic centre of Certaldo (which can be reached from the municiple centre by cable-car/tram) and overlooking the beautiful countryside, you will find Il Castello. Alfredo and his team will make you feel as comfortable as possible, ever so helpful and kind. If you choose to eat at the restaurant which I highly recommend, you must try the Truffle Risotto! Best we had on our trip. The historic centre itself is so peaceful and in autumn the colours of the changing leaves only flattered the stunning views even more.
Certaldo is a lovely little town situated somewhere between Florence and Sienna. Do yourselves a favour and add it to your itinerary - it is well worth it!

The only reason we put "only" Very Good, is because we did not stay there. It was fully booked at the time so Alfred found us another place where we stayed for three weeks. We ate at the restaurant many times, and enjoyed it immensely, as well as the charming bar that Alfredo runs. He was such a wonderful, informative and helpful person. We stayed just a few steps from the Albergo Il Castello, and spoke with him daily. The building is many hundreds of years old and restored. We toured the hotel rooms and they are charming, recently remodeled. We regularly visited with several his his guests who return year after year and their fondness for Alfred, the restaurant and the hotel, speaks volumes. If he treats his real guests just half as good as he treated us, they are in for a treat.

Room Tip: One that has been remodeled, they all will be soon. Some have views of the Midievil Village, and oth...

We had our wedding lunch at the restaurant of Albergo Il Castello with 40 friends and family and it was an absolute dream. I had been in regular contact with Alfred for many months leading up to the event and he was always fantastically helpful. The food was wonderful, I would highly recommend the Ravioli and the Roast Piglet. The wedding cake (from the bakers down in Certaldo) was fantastic. It is such a beautiful setting and perfect for a lunch. We had antipasti and prosecco out in the courtyard and then sat on one long table under the covered terrace. The restaurant supplied beautiful flowers for the table and with unlimited house wine included what more could you want?!
