“If you are visiting Tuscany Villa Montecastello is a fantastic place to stay.”
Reviewed 13 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We had the pleasure of staying at the Villa and we have to say it is absolutely a wonderful and beautiful place to relax. The apartments are roomy and have been restored beautifully. It is easy to drive to Montepulciano, Sienna, Volterra. We would definitely stay there again.

“Close your eyes and think of Italy. This is IT-aly...”
Reviewed 15 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

My wife, my 3 year old son and I stayed in the Frantoio Villa. What can I say? The accommodation was so beautiful and quaint. Jen's was a charming host - Grappa and Van Morrison's Astral Weeks spring to mind - and the whole experience was splendid!
Great food and restaurants nearby. A handy pool when it gets hot and plenty of animals to fascinate the children and the home made produce is amazing! Also only a short drive from Siena and it's many attractions. I've been to Italy quite a few times but I will definitely be heading back to Montecastelli.

“Fabulous Sunsets, Wonderful Hosts, Magnificent Toddler Experience”
Reviewed 4 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

As all parents of a 2-yr old know, it can be quite a challenge to keep the little one engaged, especially if you are taking them with you to help out with their opinions on a business trip (one of my companies specializes in luxurious experiences). We picked Villa Montecastello because it had horses, donkeys, chicken, pigs, guinea fowls and a little dog, all of whom kept her wonderfully entertained. The animals were located a short walk down the hill so we all got some daily exercise as well. My daughter loved the pool, even though she could only play on the steps (the pool is unusually deep).

From an adult perspective, my wife and I absolutely loved the stunning sunsets, the fresh air, incredible wines, the quaint town -- Colle Di Val D'elsa -- nearby for post-siesta gelatos, outstanding meals, and the best weather we could have hoped for. It was great that Jens spoke fluent English (because very few other Tuscans do), and he was able to give us a lot of valuable information about things to do in the area.

Jens & Barbara are incredible people and thoughtful hosts. We asked Jens to cook for us one evening using all the various seasonal ingredients from his farm and we got a taste of why well-known chefs from around the world go to his villa to get married or celebrate other special occasions. He spent about 4 hours cooking our meal but charged what a meal would have cost us in town. We appreciated that.

Jens & Barbara are inspiring in other ways as well. Their commitment to a farm-to-fork lifestyle and the principles of sustainability are very admirable. Barbara is an amazing florist and we saw her create beautiful bouquets for local weddings when we were there. Jens is a German architect who worked on the castle over 11 years and the details reflect that expertise. He tells some great stories as well and is wonderful dinner company.

We stayed in the Leccino apartment and recommend it highly, especially for people traveling with children. The kitchen & dining room area is EXCELLENT and well-equipped so you can actually shop at the town's grocery store and cook some fantastic meals at "home" if you don't feel like eating out every day. The bathroom is special too. It is huge and has a massive soaking tub, and I really enjoyed the powerful shower pressure.

All in all, Villa Montecastello provided an incredible experience and we will definitely be back for more.

“Perfect Tuscany”
Reviewed 23 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Besides it's a gorgeous location and very well kept, it's also strategically situated in Tuscany, close to Siena, Firenze and many small villages.
The owners are very nice and friendly and made a very professional job for the wedding we attended there (the food and wine were excellent as well as the organization).

“Find here professionalism, very good taste and familiar ambience.”
Reviewed 23 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Jens and Barbara provide you a very professional service in order to organize an event. We realized our wedding there and was everything well done, with high quality and no worries for us. Barbara is a so sensible and did the decoration that fit perfectly with the place and what we expected.

The house is very well equipped and decorated in a Tuscan style with very good taste. Has large and comfortable rooms, with everything working.

At least, there you will find a beautiful garden, pigs that provide an amazing salumi and the structure you need to receive people and/or relax.
