What our guests have to say about
Tuscany Stop Montecastello



“If you want to relax, to be in the middle of nature, to wake up with the only sound of birds and the town church’s bells this definitely is the place! We spent 2 amazing weeks in beautiful Montecastello, a little private castle in Tuscany! Everything was just perfect from beginning to end.”



“Montecastello is the most wonderful place to stay with family or friends. It is beautifully positioned in wonderful mountainous countryside for fabulous walks and amazing views yet within easy reach of shopping facilities for supplies, drinks and eating out. The villa is beautifully laid out, decorated and furnished – extremely comfortable with everything you need.”



“Thank you for sharing your little paradise with us. We have had a fabulous time with a mixture of relaxation and exploration. Montecastello was everything we hoped it would be and more! The recommendations were spot on – La Torre was a wonderful experience. The boat trip was a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.”



“This has been a fabulous family holiday in Montecastello, a very special place. We have enjoyed every moment and especially our Italian olives cooked for us with Lucianna, our chef. The ambience is very special and just what was needed. Martin and Ally have made our stay very special and have been really helpful. I feel that we have made some great friends. We hope to come back again.”




“Thank you for a wonderful stay at Montecastello. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin & Ally when we sought advice on several topics. The in house dining was terrific as was our holiday.”




“Thank you so much for leaving us in your amazing house. We had the best of times and will love to come back someday soon to your little Paradise. Captain Martin: Thanks for the ride in the boat, it was truly the highlight of our holiday!”




“Thank you for the wonderful, relaxed and hot wee in your little paradise! Every day we found new charming little details in and outside of Montecastello! It was an honor for us to be the first Austrians at your castle!”





“A big thank you for all your help & letting us stay in this gorgeous castle. Awesome place & loved every minute of it.”


“Montecastello is a lovingly renovated castle. Martin and Ally’s attention to detail has kept the character from an Italian idle with all the convenience of a modern villa. Couldn’t keep the children out of the pool, they would have given a 10 stars out of 5! As adults we loved the garden room, alfresco dinning and grounds to wander around in. The property is well maintained, clean and Ally and Martins, local knowledge and advise was invaluable. We stayed a week which didn’t do all the local area justice, we hope to be back again.”




“It was such a treat to stay at the ‘Castello!’ It’s so beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout – such comfy beds and loved the Italian linen sheets! It really was everything we hoped for and the setting is truly idyllic- peace and tranquility pervade.”



“One evening Ally with a local chef cooked and served us a magnificent meal, in fact it was more like a banquet – scrumptious! We had a great day out with Martin on a boat trip around the Gulf of Poets, which we all enjoyed tremendously. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Ally & Martin, who were always on hand to answer questions and offer advise. We were a party of 7 adults and would have no hesitation in recommending Montecastello.”



“Martin and Ally were more than terrific hosts, providing lots of information and guidance when needed. The house and grounds are just magical, beautifully relaxing and peaceful, but also close enough to the coast and to Lucca, Pisa and La Spezia… and of course, the day on the boat was wonderful. We hope very much to be back soon!”
