Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco
Ranked #3 of 17 Hotels in Montalcino
Reviewed 18 August 2014

My partner took me here for my 40th birthday and it was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We stayed here for 2 nights and we could have stayed for 2 weeks. Catiglion del Bosco is an entire hilltop village that has been converted into a boutique resort. The location and service are the highest level, and the property is very special. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

I chose to write in English in order to make more read this comment :)
This property is just an amazing experience and am avoiding here all details one can find on their website. I knew it was a property belonging to the Ferragamo family and the village being classified by Unesco.... But alltogether accomodation, food; activities, environment.... ist just outstanding. The only downside would be the Spa, although the products used are perfect (La Prairie/CH), the staff is very kind BUT far below international standards with massage techniques, considering the asked prices. Steambath and sauna are included in the room price though. Please do get , without fear, into the wine Brunello experience also! It's a real added value to wine knowledge, and the sommelier of the gourmet restaurant is very good. The trattoria is a very decent family restaurant too . Perfect for a wedding also.Ticking all the boxes ! Just go!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice according to budget...with a preference for valleyside rooms, terraces are nice t...

The road surface for the last 6 miles had me worried I will tell you as its real off road stuff. But trust me its worth the odd pot hole and bumpy road as this is a jewel . Its always good when you are left with the feeling that the hotel does everything in its power to make sure your stay is worthwhile and enjoyable. There is not much they could have done to improve the stay and that's coming from someone that's hard to please as I can be very prickly and hard to please.
That said the prices of the extra tours like mountain biking ,wine tasting are enough to make your eyes water.
The staff are excellent, the views superb and the food quality very good indeed. In an ideal world it might be nice if they put children in a separate pool somewhere but hayho that's just me being picky again.
Enjoy this hotel is very good indeed.

What an amazing estate, so incredibly picturesque and spectacular. We stayed in Casa Villa Del Fiume a villa on the Northern end of the estate for a week and did not want to leave. Such a relaxing place. Our villa consisted of a large 3 bedroom main villa with a one bedroom pool house, 12 metre swimming pool and our own tennis court. All rooms had very comfortable beds, large bathrooms and downstairs there was a huge kitchen and extensive living areas. We had a pilates instructor and tennis coach come to the property on the days we felt like some exercise other than swimming and walking!

We were provided with a four wheel drive land rover to use, and drove into Montalcino one day and also the beautiful medieval town of Siena. The Cathedral is just breathtaking!

Loved the breakfast delivered every morning and all the amazing food throughout the day, Never had a bad meal everything was so fresh. Drank many great bottles of local wine produced on the estate too !!

We enjoyed three fantastic meals on different evenings up at the Borgo in both restaurants . The staff were so attentive and knowledgable and the food fresh, simple and very tasty.

Whilst an amazing place you do have to remember is Italy and things are sometimes a little too relaxed, you just need to be conscious of this and enjoy the culture and lifestyle, and let go of all the things you would expect at home, and relax !!

Beautiful amazing place !

This spectacular boutique hotel feels like it is its own little village. It is so special and unique that I cannot compare it to any other resort. Our room was extremely large, probably 25 X 40 with high ceilings. The compartmentalized bathroom plus closets complete the suite. The beautiful furnishings, decor and view embellish your surroundings.

The staff made it clear they are there to provide you with anything and everything you would not just request, but that they think you might need. They were all helpful and pleasant. We stayed for dinner every night. We had tastings which included local foods and changed nightly. The servers could not do enough for us and certainly are a wonderful addition to the food and wine.

Though we spent two of the four days with a guide touring Tuscany, we had ample time to relax at the pool, walk the resort and just enjoy ourselves.

Though we drove to the resort from Florence, many of the other guests had a driver. Our GPS was on the money, until the detour due to a washed out bridge. We eventually arrived to a warm and gracious welcome. If you want to drink with dinner or are uncomfortable on windy unpaved roads, I suggest you dine at Castiglione del Bosco as many of the visitors when we were there did. Most of the other guests were friendly and had cocktails on the terrace nightly followed by an evening of fine dining. We went to the more casual restaurant for lunch.

For those who enjoy the type of resort I describe, Castiglion Del Bosco is not to be missed. We will return..

Not truly 5 stars, 4.5 maybe but can't do that as certainly room for improvement but really one of if not the best hotel we've every stayed at.
Amazing place and with incredible views, super friendly and helpful staff and lots of facilities. We ate at their Osteria la Canonica restaurant our first evening after long drive down from Portofino via Pisa and were so pleased we changed our last evening dinner back there as it was so good, not a huge menu but enough choice and great food and service. We played tennis a couple of mornings which was great although quite a lot of bugs and bees around that were annoying. One day we did a walk/hike which was fun but the grounds are huge and trails vary dramatically so best to ask ahead what makes most sense. Wine tasting was great and we ended up buying a few bottles and having them shipped back to us in California. Location is great and while 15 minutes or so drive to nearby towns to visit and / or for dinners plus loads of other wineries nearby. Our room was amazing as got upgraded but would have been better with a balcony/terrace to enjoy it more.
Breakfast at restaurant was decent but after first day did room service so quicker as had so much to fit in.
Front office staff were amazing and had our itinerary and were constantly updating for us as our plans changed.
The areas for improvement:
Housekeeping was inconsistent, sometimes at turndown shutters were closed, sometimes not, one night window and blinds left open, towels not replaced, water in fridge not replaced, wine glasses removed but at least when we called within minutes they were there to fix it but shouldn't be necessary.
Concierge service ahead of time was slow with normal response time of 3+ days, while most things got arranged it wasn't ideal and our request months in advance for skimmed/non fat milk for our coffee got missed until we had to request again when we got to our room.
Hiking trails are good but are poorly marked and difficulty unclear and it would be easy to get lost
But overall amazing and looking forward to going back again to explore the area more.

I had CdB reviewed but somehow the review counted into a separate name -- still me.
Anyway, it was a golf vacation with couple of friends. We stayed at a villa there -- big thanks to our friend's boss since it was his treat. Lucky me :)
Services were excellent. Golf was great, and the villa we stayed was superior.
