Villa Castiglioni offers 6 bright and spacious bedrooms and five luxury bathrooms - a total living space of 325 sqm (3500 square feet).

Villa Castiglioni is certainly both striking and imposing. Its wonderful views of the ancient hill town where, in just 1 km , you will find many shops, bars restaurants and specialist artisans. But from here it is so easy to explore this wonderful region. Both Cortona and Arezzo are very close by and, certainly a day out to Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino and the Chianti are all very easy and worth while. THe local train station makes it easy to get to Florence for the day or, you may prefer the drive and, the possibility of shopping at Prada and other high end fashion temples.

Reviews of 2017 include:

Villa Castiglioni, was perfect in every way. We were a family of 8 travelling for our first time to Italy - and Tuscany, and , staying here , we had the most amazing time. From the inquiry, arranging our reservation and arriving all was very easy and, Terry very helpful. Arriving we met Sergio our host and the welcome was genuine and friendly. We had arrived "home". The villa was super clean, lots (lots!) of space with every comfort. The grounds and pool, beautiful with views of the oldie town of Castiglion in the distance. Travelling around was easier than we anticipated. Driving to visit many hill towns added to our experience of this beautiful region, and the ease of getting to Florence using the local train very useful. Our favourite though, the hilltop town of Cortona just 20 minutes away, gorgeous.

Finding a villa ticking all our boxes was time consuming, but it paid dividends - we enjoyed our two week vacation here, everything perfect.

Family holiday in an amazing home

  • 5 of 5

THe villa is along a minor road, and is therfore easy to access - lots of parking space which was useful fro our 4 cars. The intern of the villa very well kept and easy to see that the owner has given a lot of thought to making us (and others) very comfortable. The initial reservations and helpful conversations helped with our plans - including the use of Bologna airport which gave us many more options - and, "thank you" great fares!

Large "decorative" rooms and more space than you could imagine 5 reception rooms including an enormous TV room!

Very comfy beds and the A/C for those of us who wanted it, was the perfect partner for a good nights sleep!

Outside -- also very well kept. The gardens manicured and the pool very clean and inviting.

The view of the town from the balcony gives the place an extra bit of style and gave the instant feel of boing close to Tuscany's history

Beautifully maintained and family friendly,

  • 5 of 5

first, thanks to Sergio for looking after us all.

We had high hopes for this place, and we were not disappointed. It is spacious, clean, bright and has just about everything anyone could want - almost if it was our "own home". Comfortable beds, large bathrooms, vast dining room and 3 plus reception rooms (all with TVs and wifi, and upstairs in the glass fronted reception room, an enormous TV - perfect for sport (and a film no doubt).

Albeit we had a few rainy days, the terraces were a great place to sit and enjoy some private space along with views of the old town while the younger members played and splashed around the pool. The gardens surround the house and the cypress horseshoe drive adds to the Tuscan character of the place.

Getting around here is also easy, the train station is a 5 minute drive (for trains to Florence) and the many hill towns of Tuscany are easily accessible - we especially liked Pienza and Cortona along with the antiques market of Arezzo.

A perfect place for our extended family holiday, and easy to recommend to anyone looking for a place that is cared for and beautifully maintained.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa and thank you for choosing us. Thanks too for the ideas you gave to us about providing guided tours - we will look into that - especially the wine tour of Chianti and Montepulciano. Looking forward to seeing you again one day

A wonderful Tuscan Experience & a Perefct Host

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful home and the owner - very kind and helpful. From our late arrival (close to midnight), he had arranged to wait up for us and help us with some last minute directions. When we did arrive, we found a plate of cheese and salami waiting for us together with some wine and groceries for our breakfast.

The house is perfect - and very clean. Each bedroom had comfortable beds, bright bathrooms. the (many) reception rooms full of character and lots of interesting antiques. The dining room with frescoes and all kinds of other art etc. A very fine home.

The kitchens fully equipped, big screen TVs, WiFi and everything we could ask for. ( a small exception being a tray in the kitchen - which Sergio produced the ext day)

outside the gardens are large, the terraces provide space for either entertaining or just a quiet place to relax. the large pool with the old stone town in the background was so perfect.

We were also lucky to be in Castiglion for the palio and the medieval festivals. a full weekend of color and music. flag throwing, drums, trumpets, people dressed in medieval costume, while bulls pulling old wagons and lots more a great extra fun time for all of us.

Sergio introduced us to his local guide who arranged tours of wineries, and a day trip to Florence where we walked ahead of queues to see the David and the bigger gallery of ufizi. without this, we would have been in lune for hours.

Being here was like having our own home in Tuscany. We were almost jealous that new guests were going to take it over later that day! A great find and easy to recommend to friends looking for a "home" in Tuscany
