  • This place is fruit of love of two people with their commitment and courage have it restored to its former glory. Everywhere you can feel the care with which retains the old donjon overlooking a village equally delicious and well maintained. Highly recommended a visit. Will steal your heart.

  • the mighty Tower located on top of the tiny village. It is what remains of what, I suppose being an imposing Castle. Unfortunately we found it closed, open on weekends, but still worth a stroll, especially in spring inserted in a landscape, very pleasant

  • Better than imagined. Beautifully appointed rooms with all the necessities to make your stay comfortable. Kitchens are very well stocked and even have your coffee. The castle grounds are lovely, peaceful and romantic. There is a variety of lodging available from staying the castle itself or to renting a cottage on the castle grounds. This is a small castle hamlet with a cute church that rings the bells every day. It is very affordable as is the nearby historic town of Stia. The owner, Martha Corsi, speaks English and is an amazing wonderful person who shares her family home and history. She also has an assistant who speaks English. Together they will guide you to all the great places to see around the valley and the best Italian food. This castle sits above the valley and has incredible sunsets to be enjoyed with local wine and cheese. The property is surrounded by flowers and singing birds. The hill side driving up to the castle one may encounter grazing goats with jubilant bells or a wild hedge hog crossing the road. This is not just a place to stay while sightseeing Tuscany, this is an experience that fills your soul with the joy of life. You will never want to leave which seems to be a theme. Our intended 2 day stay turned into a week. We hiked in a chestnut forest, filled our bottles of wine at the wine gas station after tastings, shopped at the ceramics factory and the wool factory museum, saw monasteries and churches galore and visited many other castles. We enjoyed the history of the area along with the rural beauty of a place where the stores still close at noon for the family meal. This is the real Italy meant to be experienced. Go alone or go with friends. Rent a car in Florence (just 1 hour and 1/2 away) I have traveled the world and this was my best vacation stay ever.
