On a hillside on the outskirts of the old Tuscan town of Certaldo sits this ancient castle, surrounded by vineyards below and trees above shielding it from view. Inside its walled garden hides a cobbled courtyard with medieval balcony, stone features and entrance to the...More

Avoid the wine tour at all costs. We were a large group, the wine we were served was from previously opened bottles and the wine we were served was corked. There are plenty of other excellent wine tasting in the area so avoid this at...More

Really! 3 Popes slept here - you can see their bedroom on the brief tour. A real castle. The cellar is cool, dark and dank - perfect! See all the old casks of wine in anticipation of the very nice wine tasting. We were served...More

Went there on advice from TripAdvisor and the time schedule on the website. Unfortunately, the tour of 16.30 was Italian speaking only, so a tour in English was promised to start at 17.00. At 17.00 the wine tasting of the Italian group started, which we...More

The road to the castle is a gravel narrow road that is a little scary. The food tasted good. The property was beautiful. Loved hearing about the history of the castle. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
