Fabulous Holiday!


By Lesley G on 28-Jun-2017

Montecastello has been beautifully renovated, with much attention to detail. The setting is amazing with stunning views. The Villa Rental is spacious and we particularly liked the mesh on the windows which let the air in, but kept the flies out! The terrace room is lovely, a real feeling of being outside, whilst being inside. We bbq'd a couple of nights and the butcher in the village provided us with superb quality meat which was cooked over wood generously provided by Martin. We ate at the table by the pool watching the fire flies, truly magical.

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.

Bliss At Montecastello


By Rachael S, UK on 04-Jun-2017

Stunningly beautiful and tranquil, with majestic views.

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.

Thank you.

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!

A Wonderful Stay!


By Simon H on 28-Sep-2016

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.

Ally and Martin are great hosts and it was fantastic to have them on hand so we could really get an insight in to the area and make the most of our holiday. The boat trip around the gulf of poets will be a lasting memory for us all- thank you Martin!

Also lots of lovely places locally to explore and the bustling riviera is within easy reach so the property has the best of both worlds. Another highlight for us was having the Montagne Verde Restaurant so close - such a stunning setting to sit and enjoy local, seasonal and scrumptious food.

Montecastello is top notch and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

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 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!

GIOQUI € ITALY


By Gioqui on 07-Aug-2016

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.

Wow!


By Liz on 12-Jul-2015

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 Rental is beautifully laid out, decorated and furnished – extremely comfortable with everything you need.

Beautiful House, Secluded Setting, Lovely Views.


By Lydia M on 12-Jul-2015

We stayed at Montecastello for 2 weeks - 3 adults and 2 teenagers. We loved the ample space within the house; 4 beautiful bedrooms, 3 gorgeous bathrooms, and a variety of different living rooms and seating areas for relaxing, reading, dining, watching DVDs. Our favourite was the 'indoor' terrace - a lovely terrace with wonderful views.

By The Howard Family on 18-Aug-2013

We stayed for a week at Montecastello - what a wonderful location! The Villa Rental is beautiful, finished to a fantastic standard and ideally placed for a relaxing stay. The gardens and pool are lovely for lazing around (breathing in fresh lavender is pretty soporific!) and the surrounding countryside and views are fabulous.

Thank you for our 2nd amazing holiday at Montecastello. We have enjoyed eating, drinking, swimming and travelling around the local area. The castello location is beautiful and according to the children its "our Italy home"! Not forgetting the local bar and local restaurant 'Bellissimo'.
