Très bel emplacement et environnement avec vue superbe sur la campagne de la Toscane. Proximité de Florence (1/2 heure). Logement très propre et agréable. Seul l'équipement du logement était juste (petit nombre de couverts, d'assiettes, de verres, poêles anti-adhésives dégradées). Accueil sympathique. Belle piscine mais très fréquentée l'après midi avec nombre insuffisant de transats. Au demeurant, nous avons passé un excellent séjour car l'ensemble était de bon niveau.

Wir kannten das Castello schon aus früheren Jahren und fanden es unverändert schön. Der Pool ist gut gepflegt wie alles. Wir hatten ein App. außerhalb des Schlosses, aber mit wunderschöner Aussicht auf die toskanische Landschaft, so dass wir es jederzeit wieder buchen würden. Sowohl die Jugendlichen (3) als auch wir waren sehr zufrieden. Besonders angenehm ist, dass ein Bus praktisch von vor dem Haus (oder manche auch vom nächsten Ort, ca. 1 km) nach Florenz fährt, so dass man sich die nervige und teure Parkplatzsuche dort sparen kann. Das Personal war durchgehend sehr nett und zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.

This property is situated in an idylic setting with lovely views. The castle is beautiful. The accommodation is very good, but access to the castle and some of the units is a bit challenging for someone with disabilities. Would definitely stay here again.

I thought the entire experience was great. The castle was more beautiful than I thought it would be, and the location was perfect. Our apartment was great and just as it was described. We would definitely use Easy Reserve again and would stay at the castle again. The only suggestion I would have would be to give extra towels to the apartments and warn about the mosquitos in the summer.

The two bedroom cottage known as Montegufoni #32 worked very well for 2 mature adults and 2 grown granddaughters. There was plenty of space for privacy, as well as together time. We especially enjoyed the outside table and chairs, overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

Castle Montegufoni was outstanding. Some of the pluses:

- beautiful property with stunning hill-top views of the Tuscan countryside, without having to drive treacherous switch-back roads to get there (such roads are a-plenty in Tuscany).

- nice pool and well-kept, lovely grounds

- great location: 30 minute drive to Florence; 45 minute drive to San Gimignano; 60 minute drive to Pisa

- spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean villa

- friendly, accomodating staff (I was encouraged to use the castle's computer for as long as I needed to book a side-trip to Venice, and they bent over backwards to take care of me when I needed some very minor first aid.)

- access to a modern washing machine that works well

- excellent price for what you get

I suggest staying in one of the villas apart from the main castle, as we did (our villa was no. 32). These villas are probably quieter, and you can drive right up to them to unload your suitcases, thereby avoiding the steep walk up the gravel hill with luggage.

The only less-than stellar aspect was the meal at the Castle's restaurant. It was good value: 24 euro for five courses. And you can't beat the ambience or the pleasure of enjoying the fine castle wine knowing that it's just a few steps to your villa. But we had better food elsewhere. I still think it's worth eating there one evening for the experience. For better food, I recommend:

Il Virginio in Anselmo, about 4 km from the castle.

Another good restaurant is at the end of Baccaiano. It's on the left side, near a large parking lot that looks like a park and ride. There's also a hotel there. If you start up the hill to Montespertoli, you've gone too far.
