Montebenichi is a town of almost 60 inhabitants, as told to us by owner Marco who himself, has a great story to tell of how he started this hotel. This castle was only recently restored and the staff has done an amazing job to keep it authentic and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was a feast. My husband and I were on...

Marco and team do an amazing job of making guests feel as though they are family. The Castelletto has been lovingly restored and is a charming piece of history. It's perched on the top of a hill with wonderful vistas of the Tuscan countryside. The rooms are ample and well appointed and the common rooms are stunning. Breakfast is a...

The hotel is in a castle, and there are common rooms filled with art, and a rooftop chill area. The rooms are unique and comfortable. Marco and the crew here really have created a cozy and authentic experience is real old-world Tuscany. We got the suite and it was worth it. The breakfast was incredible.

Upon organizing our first trip to Italy and the Tuscany region I found myself quite frequently on this website looking for ideas and advice on where to stay. I asked our TA for an authentic castle with no modern luxuries except wifi and the opportunity to take a cooking class onsite or nearby- and she provided us with the name...

My partner and I spent an absolutely amazing 3 nights here back in 2012 in October. Marco's hospitality and the amenities of the Castelleto exceeded all expectations. The breakfast set out overlooking the grounds and the recommendations from Marco and his staff helped us prep and plan our days out exploring the Tuscan countryside. Our room was very well appointed...

Awesome experience. Marco brought the area, the castle, the entire Tuscany experience to life. I totally recommend a longer trip back to this precious castle and it's surrounding area of rich history, foods, and agriculture for more than 4 days. Truly a heavenly trip of a lifetime.

We stayed for six nights on honeymoon. Oh my. The owner, Marco, is charming and very helpful. Every detail is attended to. This is authentic Tuscany, intimate, charming and simply exquisite. From the rooftop, you can see the lights of Sienna at night. You drive through a vineyard on the way to this hilltop retreat. The breakfast room and garden...

Returned after a too brief visit in 2007 and it was like coming home. In my previous review, I stated it was my favorite of all the places I've stayed in Europe and that is still the case. This time, we had a longer stay and it was that much better. We took a tour of some vineyards with Barbara...

We stayed only one night, but it was well worth it. The castle is amazing and so full of charm and history. The owner was friendly and there were lots of snacks and drinks available included in the room rate. The pool was beautiful and so peaceful.

Ooooooozing with history. This hotel has deep character and soul. The owner, Marco, is a charming historian and host. It was an honour to have visited such a valuable part of history.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Castelletto di Montebenichi, a perfect spot for visiting Tuscany, located in the Chianti, half way between Siena and Arezzo. Staying at the Castelletto is a magic experience offered to a few guests only who will enjoy precious works of art, including period frescoes, archeological finds, sketches and antique paintings, drawings, sculptures, bronzes and ceramics. They will be caught up in a pleasant, unforgettable out-of-this-time atmosphere. In this ancient mansion, dating back to XII century, tradition and modern comfort are combined perfectly. Guests are encouraged to move free like in their own home in a comfortable and familar, yet elegant and exclusive environment. At a few steps in the park guests can enjoy a swimming pool, a small sauna, and a gym with a jacuzzi mini-pool along with a marvellous view over the surrounding hills and the valley. The Castelletto has no restaurant, but around the corner a wonderful "trattoria" called "L'Orciaia" offers tasty traditional Tuscan dishes. ... more   less
