ROMANTIC APARTMENT

Montagnana Val di Pesa Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartments With 1, 2 Or 3 Bedrooms. Swimming Pool, Idyllic And Panoramic Setting

Wonderful castle with a magnificent tower built on the model of the one of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. The original structure of this castle dates back to the 12th century; in the 17th century it was transformed into a beautiful villa by the noble family of Acciaioli, who made Montegfuoni castle their summer residence. At the beginning of the 20th century, the English noble family of the Sitwell acquired the castle and restored it to its past beauty and charm. Over the many events passing in Montegufoni, the castle during World War 2 became a deposit for the Uffizi masterpieces. Finally in 1972, the Posarelli family bought the castle and lately they opened it to tourists from all over the world that can enjoy its beauty, history and its art. The castle is part of a large estate producing Chianti wine and olive oil.

Today the Castle is a unique holiday home, divided in traditional apartments all unique in style and atmosphere.

Beautiful gardens, a spacious swimming pool (open from April to October), a restaurant specialized in local recipes, wide common areas and the truly Italian hospitality of the staff will offer to all the guests a unique stay.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5
The outdoor area is very nice. Especially the garden is beautiful. We were staying in Montegufoni 17 room and we didn't like it at all. The bed was old and shaky and from day 3 there was a horrible noise day and night and nobody knew where it was coming from. They had to move us to another room but we couldn't keep it the whole time of our stay so we decided to check out earlier. It is a very old castle but the renovation of the rooms was done long time ago and the standard is very poor. There was absolutely no flexibility by he owner to give us a discount or anything even though we couldn't barely sleep for some days due to the noise. I would not recommend to go there.

Unusual, breathtaking, romantic Tuscan castle

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Castello Di Montegufoni in the Il Giardino apartment for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon tour of Italy in August 2013. The castle did not disappoint, the decor and grounds are true to its history which adds to its charm. The location is peaceful and views are truly breathtaking.

The apartment was very spacious with high ceilings - some of which were frescoed! Fully equipped for self catering. We also highly recommend the set menu from the garden restaurant with views overlooking the Tuscan countryside.

During are stay we drove to Pisa and Florence for day trips, although exploring the castle ground and relaxing by the pool was a day well spent too.

We would recommend to our friends and family and would jump at the chance to return.
