Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

In the magical, medieval Castello delle Quattro Torra,set like a jewel in the beautiful unspoilt countryside just outside the historical town of Siena guests can rent a charming apartment located on the first floor of the castle overlooking a grand medieval open air courtyard on one side and with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside from all the other windows, with its own separate entrance,a master bedroom,bathroom, a cosy kitchen tucked into one of the towers of the building, a living room with an open fireplace and an extra pull-out bed for two, All of the above are beautifully restored with original brickwork wood beamed ceilings, terracotta flooring etc and are furnished with original pieces and well-conserved antiques but lack nothing in modern comforts. All the rooms also offer breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding countryside.

Rental includes linen, water, electricity, gas, heating etc.

Free WiFi and free parking also included.

Breakfast is served in the elegant breakfast room just off an impressive drawing room with comfortable sofas and a beautiful fireplace. Guests are welcome to linger here too or in the adjacent Reading Room and to enjoy the magnificent views of a countryside from the windows.

The castle is surrounded by an Italian garden cultivated with myrtle, roses and peonies which is visible from all the castle's windows. An ample outdoor garden area furnished with umbrellas, tables, chairs and armchairs is also available for the use or our guests

We also offer the opportunity to book an authentic traditional Italian cooking class in our farm house kitchen just a few kilometres away where you can learn to make authentic Italian dishes, such as fresh homemade pasta ( tagliatelle, tagliolini, pappardelle) or gnocchi di patate (potato dumplings), chicken nuggets with Vin Santo or with saffron or saltimbocca 'Le Pietre Vive' etc. all made with our own local produce and accompanied by our own wine!

We have all the advantages of the peace and beauty of the Tuscan countryside at just a few minutes drive from the historic centre of Siena with all its attractions: restaurants and bars, fascinating medieval and Renaissance squares and streets, monuments, museums and wonderful events such as the famous Palio of Siena.

The castle is just outside Siena and despite its air of timeless tranquillity very close to main roads linking us all major Tuscan cities and offering easy access to all popular Italian destinations.As well all the attractions of Siena itself you can easily visit other famous art cities like Florence, Arezzo, Perugia or even follow the footsteps of St Francis in the ancient town of Assisi or still more easily explore any of the delightful medieval Tuscan hill towns nearby. You can even relax at one of the Thermal spa resorts only 15 km. or so away.

We are present on site as the main part of the castle is still a family home and we are always ready to assist our guests during their stay to help them get the most out of their vacation in this fascinating area of Italy.

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5

An exceptional property in a great location with great people overseeing it. This is how I remember our stay, having returned home just 3 days ago. We stayed in both the tower and the Blue room, as the tower was not available for our full 3 night stay. Both were very clean and well furnished, with breakfast provided each morning. Valerie, who is the woman that greets you upon arrival and looks after you is delightful. She is full of very good suggestions and local information on the areas many interesting sights , and despite what she may think speaks excellent English. The castle is located on a working farm which produces Saffron, and Olives among other crops. They also have their own vineyard from which their wine is made, and keep honey bees that produce the honey that is on the breakfast table every morning. All of which are available for purchase to bring home. There is also a restaurant nearby run by a family member serving food prepared using many ingredients produced on the farm. We were only able to eat here once, because we were exploring too far away to get back in time for dinner, but our meals were very good, with the waitstaff being very pleasant and helpful. If you are going to be in the area and are looking for a unique place to stay you will not be disappointed.

Historic, Beautiful, Friendly, Haunted?

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed just two days as a prelude to attending a wedding in Figline Valdarno. On our trip we stayed in three locations and this was the most fun. You could stay in the castle and not leave for a few days just absorbing the atmosphere. Even though you feel like you're in the country the middle of Siena is only minutes away from the castle. We had a car but I am sure Valeria would help you get a cab into town. Draw backs; air conditioning is limited to the bedroom in the apartment I stayed in. Lots of stairs to get to the common area where breakfast is served (i had an ankle injury at the time). When you get there Rosie will take good care of you. Due to acute jet lag my family didn't make it to breakfast either day so Rosie put together a tray of breads, fruit, cheese, coffee, etc. to bring to the room. The building was built in the mid 1200's so don't expect perfection. You will love it here.

Magnificent Quirky Castle

  • 5 of 5

It was quite the treat to stay in such a historic place. The views were amazing from our room and the tower. We joined the owner at his farm restaurant for dinner a mile or so away. Wonderful dining experience and beautiful location! Quite the Tuscan experience! We we're greeted for breakfast with wonderful baked good, fruit and juices up in the tower in a private dining room. If you like quiet & rural this place is for you!! Definitely need a form of transportation to reach any amenities.

Once in a lifetime experience in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Castello delle Quattro Torra for two nights while on a trip through Italy. The experience could not have been more perfect. Not only was the setting in the countryside outside of Sienna relaxing and peaceful, but the ability to stay in such a wonderfully preserved landmark was fantastic. Nichola and his mother could not have been more hospitable hosts. We would definitely also recommend dinner at Nichola's restaurant Le Pietre Vive -- the best meal we had while in Italy. My wife and I would definitely wish to stay at Castello again and recommend to friends as well
