When finding a place like villa casteletti, accidently, with a family of 6 (1 year old baby!) After 4 hours drive in rain from Milan and running away from a frozen villa in a nearby village in a frozen mid-February 2009, one blesses one's luck.yet, no luck is involved here; I know so because Alessandro, his team, the suites, the grounds, the location, the good, the caring and smiles, all mount up to an unforgettable experience, one I see also shared by many others reviewing it, without an exception, so supporting over years, my original thoughts , although belated, but nonetheless confirming that Borgo di Villa Casteletti is indeed a jem, one I prefer hidden for us all, and one which I share here because Allesandro deserves every guest. And BTW - the annual new year greeting card is the nicest extra, each year. Keep it up, Alessandro!
We stayed here as a base whilst visiting Tuscany to attend a wedding. It is a beautiful hotel - our room was lovely and quiet and comfortable and tastefully furnished and decorated with artworks. The food was lovely - self-service and eaten al-fresco on the terrace. The proprietor is a bit of a character with plenty of friendly banter. Ideal if you want peace and quiet away from it all. Hire car is recommended to get about though.
It is located in the middle of the beautiful Tuscany's countryside, away of towns and villages. You must have your own car (and gps) to drive around. The hotel is quaint romantic with big rooms, nicely decorated, comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast of high quality. Very hospitable personnel.
Many thanks to Alessandro and his staff for their care, kindness and efficient service during our two day stay. We were four couples having been in Italy for several weeks and returning home after this last stop near Firenze. Castelletti is located perfectly to visit metro areas like Lucca, Pisa, or Florence in a single day. Great meals in their restaurant for dinner. The best breakfast ever! Help recommending local restaurants that were amazing. Help came quickly coordinating taxi and transportation at odd hours from train to the property or to the airport. And thoughtful consideration to provide us with morning snacks before leaving early for flights. Now, the property itself is another wonder one must see to believe. Every guest should walk the cypress lined drives, visit the main Villa estate and the lake behind. Expect to hear songbirds, sight a rabbit or perhaps a dear. Bring your camera. The suites are wonderfully appointed and themed to honor some of the worlds most accomplished artists. All in a Medieval architecture environment. This is rural Italy just 25 minutes from Florence's airport. So glad we found Castelletti as we unwound a bit before a long return home!!
One of the best customer service here so i would give them 5 stars, but it is quite far from the signa station and i didnt find any taxi for 2 hrs when reached here at 9:30.So if no car, you need to inform the hotel before 9pm.Its 10 euro per trip to hotel
We were travelling all over Italy and had booked here for 2 nights. How we regret that! Firstly the staff are very friendly and make you feel at home. Our room was much better than we could have hoped for, set on 2 floors with a dining table, chairs, fridge and cooker, which came in very handy on the night where we just wanted to stay at the hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant is in a lovely setting, near the lake. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Best wishes to Alessandro x (the lady who cried when she left!)
Truly unforgettable. The setting. The rooms, The staff. The meals. I could go on and on but I have to try and write this review !! From the time that you arrive at reception you just knew that your in good hands and that your stay is going to be a memorable one. After the formalities are out of the way your shown to you suite,(all of which are all named after famous artists) which are tastefully decorated and the information folder contains invaluable information about the district, trips the hotel and facilities, together with the background of your artist. As we arrived close to lunchtime we were offered a light lunch and a choice of wines and cold drinks from the well stocked refrigerator. A brilliant and well prepared meal, which was well appreciated. Following unpacking we visiting the pool, which was adequately equipped with sun loungers and small drinks/sun cream table and two shaded areas,it was quiet and refreshing, exactly what was needed. Later we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant later and booked a table through reception. Wow is an understatement for that experience. Manned by Frederico and his staff you were treated to magnificent food, keenly priced, all of which were prepared and served in next to no time. Everything on the menu was delicious and only wish I was there now!! We made four more visits each proving to be a success and enjoying beautiful food. The following morning we went to the covered terrace for breakfast and was greeted by Alessando. A person bursting with energy, fun and a great sense of humour, who guided to the breakfast experience. Never have we experienced anything like it. Not only were you able to help yourself to the usual continental breakfast but there was everything else that you could possible think of - cake, pizza, fresh fruit, cereals, fruit salad, boiled eggs, scrambled egg, bacon, toast, four types of croissants and as much tea or coffee, together with a further selection of herbal teas. Absolutely brilliant. Throughout the week the staff couldn't have been more helpful, from taxiing us to the station, to telling us about events, wine tasting, booking restaurants etc. etc. Nothing seemed to much trouble. On top of these outstanding establishments they also have the Villa Castelletti which hosts Weddings, conferences, parties and corporate launches for up to 550 people.How they do it I don't know especially when they treat you like an individual. All that we can say is congratulations to Lucca, Marcella, Cinzia, Marco, Alessandro and all of the other staff on running an absolutely fantastic and magnificent establishment and hope that they are able to continue to do so for the future and we hope to return there soon.
Stayed with my family of 5 for 4 days in August and Villa Castelletti was fantastic! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast on the terrace was wonderful. The pool and ping pong were great to relax before/after setting out on our daily excursions to Florence, Chianti, and beyond. The rooms were clean and comfortable for 5, although a bit dark. We ate at the hotel restaurant twice and they were some of the best meals that we had in Italy. You do need a car if you stay here. 10 minute ride to train station in Signa (free parking) and 20 minute train ride into Florence which was very convenient.
Attended Villa Di Castelletti to entertain at a 3 day wedding at the end of July. The place is amazing, with superb views and great attentive staff. The owners are so nice and approachable and go out of their way to help. Special mention to Gaia who worked tirelessly to ensure all of the wedding events went perfectly. Overall, great food, great view, great staff, great experience! Thank you :)
We stayed here because we had friends stay here the year before. It was such a good recommendation! The staff was unbelievably helpful and friendly. They made great suggestions of day trips, restaurants, etc... Breakfast is on a beautiful covered terrace and delicious! Pool is nice and refreshing after al one day of exploring. They even sent us to a great deli in town for meats and cheese and wine to enjoy poolside!
