Had a wonderful time at the castle while we toured Tuscany. The pool and gardens are great to walk through. the restaurant is a great place to end the day. The only thing was the set up of the rooms were a little strange but is to be expected when you convert a castle to apartments. We would for sure stay here again if we come back to the area.
Prachtig Kasteel in schitterende omgeving. Heel ruim appartement, minder geschikt voor kleine kinderen en mensen die slecht ter been zijn vanwege allerlei op- en afstapjes.
Beautiful castle, great view, located near Florence (30 min.), Pisa (1 hour) and Sienna (1 hour). Wifi is restricted to the area near the reception (not in the rooms!), some basic things like a wine opener (yeah, that's a basic thing when you're in Tuscany) were missing in the room.
my name is kaye parker and there was 6 in our party. oh my where to start from the mtime we arrived to the time we left our stay at montegufoni was awesome. the staff alone made the stay wonderful. our rooms were great and comfortable. the grounds were just breat taking, so well kept. we could not have ask for a better place to stay. the one nice thing its only 30 min. from florince for sightseeing, and the train to roam was right there. we would go back to montequfoni in a heartbeat. the last thing is we felt that for the cost of our rooms it maid it very afordable. this place was more than we could have wished for.
We had an excellent time at Montegufoni! The grounds and views are beautiful and absolutely serene. The food at the restaurant was the best we had the whole trip and Salvo was an excellent server. Thank you for a great, relaxing trip.
