Trip Report Amazing resort stay near Montalcino

Jump to last reply

We would not have known about Castiglion del Bosco except that our travel agent had stayed there and highly recommended it as a perfect place to wind down between our stops in Rome and Florence. We were so impressed by the attention to detail, luxury appointments, restfulness and sheer beauty of the place. The guests while we were there seemed to be almost exclusively other Americans. A trip report and photos here: https://polloplayer.wordpress.com/2015/11/07/in-tuscany-kings-of-the-castiglion/

Very hard to find - we had a driver and even he made some wrong turns trying to get there. If you go, make sure you have good directions! We were there in October and it was lovely, although there is probably more to do if you go in the summer. I believe it closes during the winter months except, perhaps, for Christmas.

In addition to the twenty-three suites, there are a handful of gorgeous villas that would make an incredible (and no doubt pricey) home base for a group or a family. Half an hour of hills from here to Montalcino and about an hour to Siena.
