We stayed at the Castello for three nights. Had a great view, it is centrally located in Tuscany, quiet, private, and off the beaten path, but close to so many Tuscan towns. The rooms are large by European standards, the bathroom updated. The breakfasts are very much above the norm and the restaurant provides well prepared, delicious meals - including the best wine we had on our 2 week trip. We enjoyed the pool, which has a spectacular view of the d'Orcia river valley and surrounding countryside. I would definately return, and it also has long term apartments available for those wanting a longer stay in the best part of Italy.
