Great resort. Beautiful rooms and amenities. Two excellent restaurants, one relaxed and one a little more upscale. Great spa and grounds. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for either relaxation or a place situated conveniently located to tour the Tuscany region as we did.
After 6 day fighting crowds in FLorence and Venice we arrived at this beautiful, peaceful oasis to recover! Originally we had planned to visit wineries and other small towns/restaurants in the area around Tavernelle but the location and staff worked their magic on us and we stayed on property. Wonderful long (sometimes strenuous hills) walks thru olive groves and vineyards. Our room was in a separate building to the right of the pool with our own courtyard, table and chairs, a huge living room, bedroom , bathroom and enourmous closet! More like a little apartment. Coffee and croissant delivered each morning. Unfortunately we had only 2 nights there, wish we had booked 2 more. Will definately be back if possible. We are foodies and found the presentation, taste of food and drinks 5 star. Enough of the views have already been addressed in prior reviews.
Located in the beautiful Tuscan countryside overlooking vineyards and rolling hills, Castello del Nero was a tranquil setting to reenergize. While the hotel offered free shuttles to Florence or Siena on alternating days, I was content to spend my time walking through their 700+ acre estate with four clearly marked hiking paths that included walks through the vineyards and into the forests. I saw deer, wild boar and rabbits during my hikes. The rooms were extremely nice and comforting; however, I believe my room may have been under part of the kitchen as I could clearly hear the noise. Irrespective, if offered the same room, I would accept. The staff was wonderful. I particularly enjoyed the olive oil taking as Roberto was so knowledgeable. He even made it point to bring me a bottle of their just pressed olive oil the next day when I was having dinner at the hotel’s more informal restaurant – La Taverna. And by the way, both of their restaurants were excellent. Though I did not partake, the hotel does have a spa. Castello del Nero is a 40 min. drive from the Florence airport. You would need a car if you would like to visit adjacent towns. I highly recommend for a relaxing time and cannot wait to return.
Everything is perfect, believe. It's a 5 star hotel and so on it's not cheap - the restaurants in the property are above average in price, for example - but they are top notch in Tuscany. Amazing staff - from the front-desk, passing to the SPA or the restaurants. Got special requests? Got any kind of "should be possible" question? The answer always is positive. Originally me and my wife came to stay 2 nights, but it was so amazing that we decided to book 2 additional nights. Regarding budget restrictions this must be the first choice in Tuscany.
We just returned from 10 days in Tuscantand we spent 3 nights here. Exactly as advertised and I will not rehash all of the other glowing comments. A couple of thoughts however. We ate at the pool restaurant 2 nights. Fantastic service and food. Our sommelier was a blessing. The concierge team was very helpful. We moved rooms due a noise issue and they were 100% accommodating. You really need a car as the hotel is nowhere near Florence. We drive all over the place and you get a much more beautiful view of Tuscany by driving (often lost as we were!) off the highway (a nightmare) and wind your way through the vineyards, quiet villages and the like. The breakfast is a sensory overload. Excellent service. Same with the bar. The mornings as the fog burns off the vineyards are stunning. Sit on the patio and enjoy your breakfast and marvel at the beauty and quiet.
We stayed here last night for one night. The grounds are beautiful, you cannot beat the views. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at La Torre. We did, however, have some issues. We were upgraded to a lovely room but when we went into the room someone had used the toilet and not flushed. Not what you expect at a five star hotel and kind of gross and awkward. Also we asked reception to make us dinner reservations for a restaurant in Montepulciano and she told us they are closed Monday and would not make the reservation. Upon further research, the restaurant is closed Tuesday and not Monday’s. Again not what you expect from this class of hotel.
bsolutely a special place. Stunning views and amazing location. Expect a five-star property and service and amenities of the highest quality. The Concierge Team, the Chef and all employees really care about creating the best hotel experience for their guests.
Beautifully maintained property just 30 minutes from Florence overlooking vineyards and the countryside sitting atop a knoll...seemed like a world away from the crowds. We enjoyed a Jr. Suite with nice views, a large bathroom, bedroom and sitting area. There is a large pool, big enough to swim laps. There are two restaurants on site. We enjoyed four delicious dinners at La Taverna. Shout out to the chef for high quality dinners and desserts. Lovely wines and friendly service too. We especially enjoyed Nicola, Marco and Davide and in the charming bar in the hotel, Lorenzo was great. Alberto, our concierge was nothing but helpful and delightful to work with. We ordered daily coffee and it was at our room in 5 minutes! Housekeeping was first class. I highly recommend this hotel. Best if you have a car, as there is not much of a town, but we did private excursions and were happy to relax at the hotel.
This hotel is beyond all expectations! The property is absolutely stunning and you will feel like you stepped into another world. The staff is fantastic and so welcoming. Definitely plan to have dinner at La Torre. It will be the meal of a lifetime! Then indulge the next day at the spa. You won't want to leave this magical place!
We visited Tuscany for an anniversary trip, and what a treat to be at Castello del Nero. The room, the service, the food and of course the wine were top notch. I don't believe I have ever stayed in a nicer room, but that is only part of it. The grounds are amazing. the view is one that never gets old. I felt like I was in a painting. Everyone we encountered working at the hotel was warm, gracious and helpful. You will not regret going. I will be returning!
