Situated in the heart of Chianti, this estate has been constructed from an old landowner's villa, which was once part of a fortified village in Tuscany dating back to 1000. The word "castello" (castle) means in Tuscany a complex of houses sorrounding the principal landowner's villa, and is generally located on top of a small hill for self protection. The restoration of this property has concerned both the main villa, where there are the rooms in B&B,  as well as the sorrounding houses, which are divided into apartments of various types in the typical Tuscan style.

The rooms in the villa offer a friendly, refined atmosphere, enhanced by its typical oak beams and terracotta floorings. The furniture show a great attention to every detail and reflects the typical Tuscan style. Breakfast is served in a welcoming little room, where it is also possible to organise private dinner parties (on request). Swimming pool, bicycle rental and car park are at guests' disposal.
