My family took a week vacation to Italy at the end of May. Castiglione del Bosco was our stop between Florence and Rome. It is hard to describe how spectacular the stay was, it was really that perfect. We were unable to get regular rooms so ended up staying in a 3 bedroom villa a short walk from the main complex. I believe it could easily sleep at least 7-8 every room was extremely oversized, the kitchen and living room as large as those in my own home. The view from the pool and the villa looked like it was out of a painting. (It rained or was grey all 3 days we were there and it was still magnificent-in fact my holiday card this year is pics from this villa)
However, it is not just the accommodations that make this a special place. It is the staff that works there who bend over backwards to meet every need of ours. We took a pasta cooking class where we got many useful tips and we had a wine tour of the estate which was comprehensive and included incredible wines. Basically you never have to leave the property. We did for other wine tours but felt we should have spent all time there.
We ate every meal there. All the food and all the wine was superb. Even in a 3 day period the staff gets to know the guest preferences well.
Yes it is very expensive, but we will definitely go back-hopefully with a little sun the next time.
