We were fortunate with our timing in Tuscany. A week in October with misty mornings, warm middays and cool evenings. We had Il Castagnolino as our base for the week, and it was a great choice. The views over the rolling countryside are wonderful, and we saw a Supermoon, shooting stars and a triple rainbow (not all at once!). Carmela... More

We have a pleasant 5 day stay in Agriturismo. Our room was very clean and it was cleaned up every day. Camela, the owner is a very good cook. Very good breakfast. It is definitely worth to try the 4 course dinner. They also have good selections of wine. The whole property is well taken care of and the view... More

We spent lovely three nights at Agriturismo il Castagnolino while touring Tuscany during the day. I only regret that we did not have more time to simply relax at the house and enjoy the grounds and incredible views. It is very close, but not easily walkable, to San Gimignano, but we found other Tuscan towns (Volterra, Montepulciano) more appealing and... More

This is set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Only a few kilometres from San Gimignano it is perfectly located to visit Volterre, Siena and the Chianti region. We explored the whole area easily from here. The house and gardens are so peaceful and quiet, there is a pool that looked lovely but it was too early in the season for... More

Carmela and Ivan were the perfect hosts. They had lots of recommendations to fill our week as this was the perfect base to explore the beautiful area. It was November but we were exceptionally lucky with the weather. Better to go when the evenings are longer. We stayed nine nights and ate in seven. Every meal was different and delicious.... More

This was our 5th and last B&B in Tuscany. Having read some of the previous reviews which raved about Camela's cooking classes/skills, we were frankly mystified as to what basis the ratings were based on. The greeting was the least warm of all the B&B and agriturisomos we stayed at. The room was small, not adequately furnished, and the bathroom... More

One of our best holidays ever. Our first time in Tuscany and we were lucky enough to choose Agriturismo Il Castagnolino. From the first welcome of the owners Carmela and Ivan to the last tearful goodbye everything was perfect. The location was ideal with views over the fields of Tuscany. Our room was large, airy, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts... More

We stayed for five nights in June and had a lovely relaxing break during a hectic and hot 3000km car tour in our MX5 . The property had a rustic charm in a great location with fantastic views.

If you look for something QUIET - here you are absolutely at the right place. No any kind of noise. Very familiar with few rooms only. Eat also there, everything is cooked by Carmela, the owner - no words could express how delicious the food is. Defenitely a place to return. Thanks to Carmela and Ivan
