Fodor's Expert Review Castello di Gargonza

SR73, Località Gargonza, 32 km (19 miles) southwest of Arezzo, Monte San Savino, Tuscany, 52048, Italy Fodor's Choice

Enchantment reigns at this tiny 13th-century countryside hamlet, part of the fiefdom of the aristocratic Florentine Guicciardini family and reinvented by the modern Count Roberto Guicciardini. A castle, church, and cobbled streets set the stage. Guest rooms vary in style; high wood-beam ceilings, terracotta floors, and modern bathrooms are the rule throughout. Apartments have three to eight rooms each, sleeping as many as 10 people, and have as many as four baths.
