We stayed one night in this lovely castle and would have loved to stay much longer. One of our best stays in Italy. The buildings themselves are extensive and beautifully redone; the setting is peaceful and picture perfect. Our room, in the building next to the castle itself, was large, very clean, and well appointed, with a large bathroom. The breakfast buffet was huge and very good and was laid out just for us, as the only other family there was in a self-catering apartment; we ate it in a storybook setting within the castle courtyard. We loved the pool, which we had all to ourselves, and enjoyed a bottle of the local wine. The two hosts were very kind and capable - and seemed to enjoy what they do. You can bike or walk to Monteriggioni from the castello on established trails - that's on our list for next time.

Yes it is a castle and winery in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Gabriela our hostess is wonderful. She is warm and informative. Her tour of the castle and winery was a delight. Our suite was huge with lovely decor, very comfortable queen bed and incredible view. The ensuite, also large had a jacuzzi. Breakfast which was served in a wonderful dining room was plentiful. We highly recommend Castel Pietraio and would love to return.

Room tip: Ask if jacuzzi is in good working order.

Is it a castle? Yes it is! And it is beautiful. The hotel/winery is tucked away in gorgeous countryside and is well worth the stop. The room was large enough with a comfortable bed and very clean bathroom. The manager Gabriela is very very helpful, a little quirky but also great fun, make sure you ask about the wine it is very good and Gabriela will find the right one to suit you. The breakfast is simple but provides a quick start to your day. The hotel is only a short distance from the lovely medieval town of Monteriggioni, there are some great restaurants here. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

It is true, it is a medieval castle, but instead of knights and ladies now there are tourists who can stay just as they did the pilgrims of old, but it is a constant commitment to find comfort in their many most. I'm glad it was satisfied even by a tasting of the wines we produce in our cellars exclusively from grapes of the vineyards around the castle. I hope that the proximity to the major art cities of toscan not enable it to visit them. Thanks again for recommending Castel Pietraio.

A wonderful old castle which has been completely and tastefully updated. A delightful hostess and nice breakfast. A convenient country location very near to Monteriggioni. The rooms are spacious and the baths are large by Italian standards. Well worth a stay

Our stay at Castel Pietraio was amazing. The hotel is fantastic! Gabriela is very kind and funny. The room was gorgeous and very big, the location is perfect to visit the area. Gabi also suggested us to go do Casalta for dinner and we had an amazing night.

I thank you on behalf of myself and all the Castel Pietraio Staff for your kind review.
It was a pleasure for us to accomodate you during your stay in the Chianti region; such as you have been able to see we are in a strategic area, located between Florence and Siena, just a few kilometers from the beautiful San Gimignano, and may others important middle ages cities of Tuscany.
Casalta is one of the best restaurants in the area and have a dinner there is a must.
Hooping to see you again, best regards
