My husband and myself stayed at Castellare in September, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Stalleta house, a one bedroomed property with sitting room/kitchenette, bedroom and spacious bathroom. There was a satellite TV (limited english channels) and a DVD player (no DVDs so bring your own). The setting was beautifully quiet, high up in the Tuscan hills....

My fiance and I stayed for a week in Castellare this November. I was a bit worried when picking the place, that it could be too remote and we might be a bit bored, but there was no need for that at all. From the very first email from Catina (the owner and a fantastic host) I knew we will...

Castellare is a remote place locate about 25 minutes drive by car from Firenze. The place is dated back to the middle ages and run by Catina and her family. Catina is a perfect host. She loves people and it shows in the way she welcomes her guests. The place itself is a very big ecological farm and Catina's husbend...

We stayed here in sept in the 2 bedroom apartment, staletta? The location is stunning, set uP in the middle of the woods (this is definitely for people looking for a quiet, relaxing time) not good if you would like to be in the hustle and bustle of a city. The cottage is run by a lovely lady called catina...

We would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Toscany. Me and my family (wife and our 1 year old child) stayed here for 4 nights in June 2011 while we were exploring the nearby area. It was very important for us to be close to the places we came to visit because of our child and we easily...

We (two adults and our son) stayed for two weeks in late June early July 2010 for our summer holiday and I feel I could not have chosen better.

The woods...

We stayed at the Castellare for 4 nights last year and were traveling with our 2 yr old toddler.

So I emailed the owner Catina and got her to send me some...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Castellare is an ancient building on the high hills that surround Florence (just 20km away). It is set on top of a private hill, invisible from the public street, and completely surrounded by nature. We offer 4 accomodations, and with the recent renovations we think they are even more warm and inspiring. The Stalla is our larger one, and is displayed on two floors. Upstairs two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom; downstairs a big open space with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room area. The Stalla house is perfect for a family or a small group of friends. In restructuring it we tried to maintain its medieval flavour, so you will find an original stone floor and family pieces of furniture. And lots of art pieces, from well known artists we worked with. Music, films and books are at your disposal for more inspiration. Outside the living room door there is a private garden with table and chairs for romantic outside dinner. The Loggia has an indipendent kitchen, that we decided to paint a lilac, a happy colour. There is a large window that offers views of the olive trees and woods, so breakfast can be a truly peaceful moment; The livingroom with a stone column has also a very nice window, and a sofa, that in seconds becomes a combortable queen size bed; the bathroom is also on the ground floor, and the bedroom is up on the loft, under the ancient woodden beams of the ceiling. The Loggia too has a small private garden, in a shady area, precious in summer hot months.The Stalletta has been renewed just months ago, and now has a new kitchen and a new bathroom, of soft colours. The shelves are antique, and some of them have been made from 17th century restored wood, with the original decor. The Stalletta has a bedroom, a room with the itchen, a dining area and a relaxing area, and a spacious bathroom. There is a window door that opens on the little privategarden with the table and chairs of wood, right near the stone wall always full of flowers. The Capanna is a small detatched cottage that has been renovated last year with a new kitchen and with a white coat of paint of the original stone walls and ceiling. Even the old wooden chandelier made from a tree root has been freshly painted of a lighter colour to offer a more relaxing atmosphere. There is a bedroom, a bathroom, and a room with a kitchen, a dining area and a living room. Two window doors illuminate the Capanna, the entrance one, and the one that opens on the outside dining area, with woodden table and chairs.In the main lawn there is a swimming pool with a wooden deck that runs around it. It's in a lovely spot, surrounded by plants and flowers, with open view of the sky and nature all around. WIFI connection is free and available in every accommodation. ... more   less
