AMAZING! BEAUTIFUL! TRANQUIL!

  • 5 of 5

The drive up from Florence is completely worth reaching this peaceful oasis. The castle with its grounds -- built in the tradition of the 19th century Victorian "folly" -- is spectacular. The kitchen has an original ceiling, from 1200, which suggests that the 2nd builder used an existing property for his new construction.

The grounds are lovely; paradise, really -- either sunny, or shaded, and we had our own private access to the pool. Everything is totally clean, and well-maintained. We were only able to stay for a short time, but I could see spending a week here and exploring the Tuscan countryside. Good price, as well.

Francesca's mother and father were really sweet; they were anxious to make sure we had a good stay. And -- as a side note -- gave us a jar of her delicious, homemade tomato sauce in the welcome basket.

Bring groceries and/or wine.

séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Après 4 jours à Florence, nous nous sommes posées au chateau de Ferrano.

Pour se reposer il n'y avait pas meilleur choix, le lieu est splendide, au cœur de la Toscane, l'appartement très, très confortable, la piscine est formidable.

Et comme cela n'était pas suffisant, il faut rajouter l'accueil; les italiens sont serviables et attentionnés.

Fabrizio et Sonia sont au delà, prévenants pour tout, ils vous accueillent comme des cousins lointains...

C'est vraiment le cœur gros qu'il a fallu partir!

Allez y vous ne le regretterez pas.

Françoise et Dominique

To recommend very much! A wonderful Toscana-castle

  • 5 of 5

Castello di Ferrano is a perfect holiday destination. A wonderful castle in the Toscana close to Florence with historical pieces of furniture, a dream pool and very hearty hosts. Here you can come to rest and have a good starting point to explore around the beauty of the Toscana. We had a wonderful time in your dreamlike castle. Thanks to your deep hospitaly and warmth we enjoyed every minute. We felt like a part of your familiy. Grazie mille! Karsten, Annett and Kira from Germany
