“Perfect honeymoon getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

When we first were trying to arrive, we got lost in the hills of Chianti/ Tuscany. However, once we arrived, we were met by Francesco with a contagious energy who informed us we should have used his directions instead of google maps- oops! This is an old castle/ mansion about 15 minutes from Siena in a small village. His entire family was so lovely and Francesco was the best host! We were the only 2 staying there for the first couple of days so we were able to chat with him every morning for an hour or so about sights, drives, history, family traditions, etc- it was such a joy to get to know him and his family. We felt like we were at home. we stayed here at the end of our 2 week honeymoon in Italy for 4 nights and it wasn't enough time. We will DEFINITELY be back to stay here- especially because we are still thinking about Cacio e Pepe- the small restaurant where we had the BEST meal in all of Italy! Thank you for everything! Also, his mom makes the best pastries for breakfast :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tower Room and I think this had the best view in the entire Villa! You can see Sie...

Astreo was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy and we discovered it almost by accident. The villa has been in the Bonelli family for generations and is now the home of Senora Rosanna Bonelli – the only woman to have ridden in the Siena Palio in its 400-year history! Senora Bonelli (La Rompicollo) rode in the palio on August 16, 1957 for the Aquila (Eagle) contrada. The villa has a tiny museum with Rompicollo’s medals and other artefacts. S. Bonelli is wonderfully charming and gracious and Astreo is now managed by her son Francesco and daughter Chiara. Both Francesco and Chiara are very friendly and are a valuable and entertaining source of information and stories about the surrounding Chianti region (ask Francesco about the origin of the black rooster, the insignia for the Chianti region). Our room – the Rosa (Pink) Camera – had delightful, matching and very comfortable antique furniture. The room was clean and comfortable with a window overlooking the mature garden. The villa is in a wonderful location with a spectacular view of the countryside and the towers of Siena in the distance. The ancient castelo Brolio with its legendary winery is nearby. We also discovered, also by accident, just six kilometres from Astreo, the Parco Sculture del Chianti with its amazing collection of sculptures by artists from all over the world. The imposing sculptures are nestled in an oak forest and blend in with the surroundings.

Wonderful place full of ancient charm! Real escape from modern hotels. Surrounded by beautiful nature, but very close to Siena. We took it as our base for our Tuscany trip, its location is perfect to visit the whole province. The host Francesco is very nice and very helpful, the places and villages to visit and restaurants to taste he recommended to us, were all perfect.
We went there 3 years ago and it is still a place we remember often and would like to visit again!

Room Tip: Tower room is charming with beautiful view, but private bathroom outside of the room. We didn't...

We visited Villa Astreo 4 years ago, stayed in the pink room, and this is one of the experiences that makes me want to go back to Italy over and over again.. Beautiful scenery, awesome villa and great owners.. One down side is after watching past palio videos and drinking grapa with the owner, I now have to have grapa after every big meal.. Definitely would reccomend!! Worth driving the dirt roads to get there!!

Room Tip: I had to give 5 stars for all options even though they don't have room service or fitness servic...

A unique and a charmiing villa with amazing views and a tremendous amount of history. Hosts Francesco, sister Chiana and mother Rosana Bonelli are very warm, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was below average compared to the other places we stayed. rooms are clean.Our stay and experience was marred by the room we were allocated. We booked for three nights & were given the smallest Verde bedroom while the one nighters were given the larger better rooms.
overall the rates we paid were excessive for the bedroom we were allocated.

Room Tip: Please ensure you get the better rooms for a longer stay.

Villa Astreo was not only amazing and beautiful, its had really interestinig history behind it and the hosts were so friendly!!! we were made to feel at home and also so welcome!!!! they were very helpful! we actually extended our stay here for an extra night as it was so good! we hired a car on the second day and drove through feilds of sunflowers and cypress trees to visit the towns of perugia, cortona, florence and (these towns are a must see). This Villa B&B has an artistic vibe and each room is decorated differently (we had the tower room which was awesome) we had a seperate bathroom that was outside of our room but we had no issues with this. We loved the fact that we could walk 6 mins down the road and go to the local Vagliagli restaurants!! delicious! If you are keen to check out the Chianti region you must stop through Vagliagli Villa Astreo as the place is perfect tuscan spot!!

Room Tip: Just check out the rooms on the website to choose the one best suited to you.
