One of the most beautiful locations we have been to. We stayed in one the the apartments for a week and with the exception of the kitchen everything at Gargonza is top notch. The kitchen was sufficient but we love to cook so it would have been nice to have it a little more current. Otherwise this place is awesome....

Friends recommended this place and the idea of staying in a castle really appealed. We caught a taxi from Arezzo train station (30 min) and checked into a big 2 bedroom quarters with lounge room, kitchen and bathroom. The cooking facilities were very basic with microwave and old gas stove, but we only did our own breakfast and lunch and...

Thank you very much for your stay with your family to Castello di Gargonza. Families are always welcome to Gargonza because family lived the village until the 1950's so it's nice to have them back! The house bear the name of its former inhabitants. Few more bathrooms where added but the essence of the medieval village has been preserved. Gargonza...

I stayed at Castello di Gargonza in September 2011 for four days to attend my son's wedding. A magic time. The whole wedding party - guests and all - stayed there. We had the most wonderful time - the hotel staff were extremely helpful and made our stay so much more enjoyable. The surroundings were picturesque and the apartments we...

This was an Alistair Sawday recommendation and that really sums it up. Tasteful, different, charming and off the beaten track. The other reviews say 'magical' and it we cannot disagree. While it is quite a long way off the beaten track, that is what we wanted for this part of our holiday and it is perfect. Within minutes of arrival...

We found this place very last minute but was everything that you can ask for! Great food, amazing views, and beautiful well kept estate. Highly recommend it for those looking for a quiet retreat away from Florence or Rome's busy streets and un the heart of Tuscany area.

My husband and I chose to get married at Gargonza on 9th June 2012. It was the most magical 3 days of our lives. I'm almost lost for words as to how special this place is.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in mid-March for our honeymoon. It was clearly the off-season as we were the only inhabitants. However, we were never made to feel in the way. On the contrary, the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. The rooms are simple, but comfortable, and the...

I hope that says it all. Gargonza is great value for money and I never fail to stay here once or twice a year. It is Tuscany. Yes, it has minor irritations, such as wonderful log fires instead of dreadful TV. Food is plentiful, even too much, but excellent for the prices. Romantic too
