Tres beau chateau, avec emplacement exceptionnel pour visiter la toscane. Appartement sympa et surtout très propre. Personnel agréable. Néanmoins, tres tres bruyant, nous avions l'impression que les voitures passaient au pied de notre lit. Infecté de moustiques. Electricite, gaz , pression d'eau qui fonctionnent à son bon vouloir, transat insuffisants.... équipements identiques à un petit camping. ( ne pensez meme pas cuisiner ). Le rapport qualité prix est loin d'être satisfaisant!

Il y a sûrement mieux sauf à vouloir participer à la préservation d'un site historique!

Le cadre du château est très joli, typique toscan.

Cependant, 10 logements, dont le 36, sont à l' extérieur du parc, au bord de la route face au parking !

Donc très bruyant dans les chambres en simple vitrage, qui donnent directement sur la petite route où passent tracteurs, 2 roues, camion poubelles ...dès 6h le matin.

Équipement minimum = manque four, grille pain, lave vaisselle, sèche cheveux, vaisselle très limitée,

Maintenance : literie vieillissante, porte de chambre parent ne ferme pas, gaz cuisson 1 feu ne fonctionne pas, chaises trop basses pour la table intérieure

Situé à coté du logement des personnes de l' entretien, donc passsage permanent du personnel au ras de la table extérieure.

Point positif : c' est grand, le chateau est beau.

Beaucoup trop cher pour ces prestations

Wir wohnten im Nebengebäude vom Schloss welches direkt an einer Straße lag. Insbesondere am Wochenende war an Schlaf kaum zu denken, da die Autos und Motorräder mit hoher Geschwindigkeit direkt am Fenster vorbeifuhren.

Zum Haus ist zu sagen, dass die Fotos den Zustand besser darstellen als es in Wirklichkeit ist. Die Austattung der Küche ist mäßig. Man sollte einiges von zu Hause mitbringen. Geschirrs ist nur 4-Fach vorhanden.

Pool und Außenanlage ist in Ordnung, aber wenig gepflegt.

Vor Ort ist fast ständig ein Büro für die Gäste besetzt, allerdings lässt die die Freundlichkeit sowie Hilfsbereitschaft zu wünschen übrig. Ein Lichtblick ist der GUISEPPE, der gutgelaunte Hausmeister des Anwesens.

Schade, wir hatten mehr erwartet. Nur, wer unbedingt mal in einem Schloss wohnen möchte, dem ist eine Buchung zu empfehlen, dann aber darauf achten, dass man nicht in einem der vielen Nebengebäude landet.

Das Schloss ist sehr schön gelegen und durch Alter und Einrichtung sehr beeindruckend. Das Restaurant ist sehr empfehlenswert. Wir hatten das Apartment Nr 36 mit 2 Schafzimmern und 2 Bädern. Die Einrichtung war sehr urig und typisch für die Region. Die Ausstattung war allerdings sehr spartanisch. Nur das nötigste Geschirr. Nicht mal ein Wasserkocher oder ein Toaster. Einen Backofen haben wir ganz besonders vermisst. So konnte man nicht mal ein paar Brötchen oder eine Pizza aufbacken. In dem Begrüßungsprospekt das uns überreicht wurde, hieß es "hier werden Sie nur vom Zwitschern der Vögel geweckt". Das war leider überhaupt nicht so. Die Straße direkt neben dem Apartment wird morgens zwischen 05.00 und 08.00 Uhr von den Bewohnern von Montegufoni als Rennstrecke zur Arbeitsstelle genutzt. Aufgrund der nicht vorhandenen Isolation der Fenster und Wände hört sich das an, als wenn alle mitten durch das Haus fahren. Am zweiten Tag reiste einen Gruppe von 112 Leuten an - überwiegend im Alter von 20-30 Jahren. Von da an (bis zum folgenden Sonntag) war der Pool rund um die Uhr belegt und es wurde bis morgens um 04.00 Uhr (am Samstag bis 06.10 Uhr) Party gemacht. Mittelpunkt war ein Ghettoblaster der allerfeinsten Sorte mit Extrasuperbass. Beschwerden (nicht nur von uns) bei der Hotelleitung führten dazu, dass die Musik etwas leise wurde, dafür der Bass aber um so mehr dröhnte. Nachdem diese Gruppe abgezogen ist, kam eine eine größere Gesellschaft, die u.a. auch in das bis dahin leerstehende Apartment neben uns eingezogen sind. Wenn dort jemand sprach oder Geräusche machte, hatten wir den Eindruck, dass die in unserem Zimmer stehen. Wir haben noch nie so schlecht und so wenig im Urlaub geschlafen (die Matratzen sind übrigens auch mieß). Schade, es hätte so schön sein können :-(

The castle is very nicely located and by age and decor very impressive. The restaurant is highly recommended. We had apartment # 36 with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The decor was very rustic and typical of the region. The equipment was however very basic. Only the most necessary dishes. Not even a water cooker or a toaster. We missed an oven. So you could not even bake a few rolls or a pizza. In the welcome report presented to us, it was said that "you are only woken by the chirping of birds". Unfortunately this was not the case at all. The road next to the apartment is used as a racetrack by the inhabitants of Montegufoni in the morning between 5 am and 8 am. Due to the lack of isolation of the windows and walls, it sounds like everyone is driving through the house. On the second day, a group of 112 people arrived - mostly at the age of 20-30 years. From then on (until the following Sunday) the pool was occupied around the clock and it was party until 4 am (Saturday to 06.10 clock). Complaints (not only of us) with the hotel management led to the music was only a little bit quiet... After this group left, a larger company came, which among other things moved into also in the until then resettled apartment beside us. When someone spoke or made noise, we had the impression that they were in our room. We have never slept so badly and so little on vacation (the mattresses are also bad). It could have been so nice...

We had a wonderful time at this property. Our accommodations were as expected - nothing too fancy but everything we needed. The area was great - the views spectacular. The check-in process was hassle-free and all of the people there were very friendly. The food at the restaurant was great. If we have one recommendation for improvement it is regarding the chlorination of the pool. It was a very clean and refreshing pool, however the water smelled very strongly of bleach (i.e. laundry bleach) rather than chlorine or bromine that might be used in a pool. Not a big deal - everything else was sublime!
