Delightful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a week in the Del Caccia apartment of the magnificent Castello di Colognole in May. The castle has been lovingly restored and has a beautiful central courtyard with doorways framing exquisite views. The lovely gardens, set up above the ancient exterior wall, are the perfect place to contemplate the rolling hills with their olive trees and vineyards. There are flowers everywhere, and the owners have a large organic vegetable garden as well.

Our apartment was very comfortable, attractive and immaculately clean. The kitchen was petite but very efficiently organized; we cooked several meals there. We had friends join us for the last few days of our stay, and they found the second bedroom very comfortable. Il Colognole is not a place for those seeking glitziness or the lap of luxury; it is for those who appreciate ancient, well-restored architecture, a warm welcome,a peaceful location and who don't mind a steep gravel road that is a bit of an adventure at first! We quickly got used to it, however.

The gracious owners are on site and could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We have traveled in Tuscany several times, and this was our favorite place we have stayed in that region.
