Wonderful castle dating back to the 12th century, restored in the 17th century by the noble family of Acciaioli, with a magnificent tower built on the model of the one of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

This place was beautiful! The rooms were lovely, bathrooms stunning, and you can't beat the view of the rolling hills of Tuscany. I would definitely recommend renting a car for this location as it is not easy to get around via bus or public transit.
We recently stayed in this wonderful villa in Tuscany and had a great time. The rooms are lovely, bathrooms are amazing and you can't beat the view of the Tuscan country-side from your kitchen window. There are three nice sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms all with showers, and a decent kitchen with a large table and comfy couch for relaxing. There is also a nice patio set out front with comfortable chairs and a covering to protect from sun/rain. I would highly recommend renting a car if you stay here as it is not easy to get around via bus or public transit. We found that out the hard way but luckily the very helpful reception staff helped us get a rental car dropped off at our villa once we arrived. There are many vineyards in this area and a nice local restaurant just up the hill in the neighboring village. We would love to stay here again.
Beautiful villa in the hills of Tuscany! The castle has an old world feel to it, with a wonderful staff, gorgeous views, lovely town, delicious on-site restaurant and lovely pool.
