Amazing location, good food and wine, good service. The castle is perched high up in the hills, a bit of a hard climb for our little hire car but worth it, as the views from the top especially as the sun was setting were amazing. Well worth a visit.

We celebrated our Wedding at the Castello di Valenzano. We had arranged everything by e-mail, and had not even seen the castle before the day before the wedding. However, we were not disappointed! The castle is beautiful, has a great location high up in the hills outside Arezzo, and is surrounded by lovely gardens. The food is great, and we were incredibly impressed by the service - both how they managed to make everything (flowers, food, music) perfectly in accordance to our wishes, and the way they kept everything running smoothly during the day while taking great care of us and our guests. Warmly recommended!

Our stay at the castle of Valenzano, far from towns or shops, made us discover the very good homemade type of food restaurant on its premises. Homemade pasta, and roasts had generous servings. Their desserts were not however very original, but the ice cream and fruit salad were always present. A good selection of wines allowed the visitor to try some of the best Regional Italian wines. After breakfast, a walk on the small park was an opportunity to tour among the old trees still standing.
We enjoyed the stay and were given a very big room reserved for the married couple, it was called the Egyptian room...and we even had a small dining room just for us!

on our last day in italy this year, we had dinner in the castello di valenzano. It was a steep road up in the dark but then there it was - not a italian house or villa but a real castle, a big one ! after looking a bit for the entrance of the restaurant we climbed up the stairs and found an empty place. Yes it was wednessday evening but empty ? We had a look on the menu, very sympathetic chef de salle by the way, and three of us had the menu 25 euro for 25 dishes (yes you have red right!) and my sun had the classical antipasto and afterwards the steak. We had a fantastic experience the dishes were small of course (25 of them) but most were well prepared (some hot ones might have been to cold) and delicious. This with some excellent wine (amarone) and the evening was perfect. Except for the absence of ambiance. They really need to find a way to have a full place than this could be a topper !

Amazing castle hidden within the northern Arezzo's hills ( casentino ). Very accurate and kind service, all food cooked on the spot, especially the grilled meat ( steak, pork chops their specialities ) and the vegetables grown within their farm. Excellent wine selection of local vignards. Pleasant outdoor seating. The table setting a little bit too "cheap" not in line with the location, yet a very very nice place.
