“Idillic Location”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

This B&B and its' surrounding quaint almost medieval village looks like it came off a well maintained movie set. My wife and I stayed in one of the top floor rooms and the view of the surrounding countryside from the window was "storybook" and unbelievably serene.
I was struck by the spaciousness of the castle B&B. Our room was huge, very clean and supremely quiet. The staircase leading down to the common and breakfast areas was grand, certainly fitting as I would imagine it to be for an 11th century castle. The building is exceptionally well maintained and I felt as if we were staying in an almost museum-like atmosphere.
Gioia and her family's artwork were from a variety of cultures are in abundance and perfectly position to add to the decor of the castle. Gioia's mother even has an art shop out back.
I believe the rooms were all occupied during our stay but you never would know it due to the spaciousness and solidity of the castle. About 10 of the guests gatherd for the suberb breakfast Gioia served.
An amazing place!

Vertine is a fantastic small (very small) village up on the hill above Gaiole in Chianti, one of the famous villages in the wine region south-west of Florence. Two old towers and a few houses, surrounded by walls, all in whitish stone, very typical.
The relais is located in one of the two towers, dating XI (yes, eleventh!) century.
What we found extremely ok in this place, where we stop-overed for one night along a long trip, is that you can enjoy the life of a middle-ages castle as good as it could be nowadays.
The owner, Gioia, is very friendly and does her best to make you feel at home. And this is how you feel, the moment you understand you will sleep in the room that was Gioia's herself when she was a kid. Images from the owners' life are everywhere and the "artistic" vein is everywhere: statues, pictures, even a sculpture lab in the small building just outside the castle main entrance.
Quality of sleep is fantastic. Breakfast in the castle kitchen was five stars.
Do not expect luxury, just expect to be at your ease. As if at home. With the difference that you are "homing" in an eleventh century castle. Prices are ok.

I was here with my fiance for a week in the summer of '12
Overall we had a fantastic time! The rooms in this medevil castle are spacious, comfortable, and extremely elegant.
Joy, the owner, was very accommodating to our every need and request. She suggested excellent places to eat and visit.
It was also nice to simply stay on the grounds of the castle and relax by the pool with the stunning view and exquisite art surrounding us.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something special and unique!
