Review for stay from 23 March 2018 to 01 April 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our Tuscany vacation was made so much more enjoyable by our stay in the Galleria. Everyone was very helpful and even went out of their way to help with anything that came up. The grounds were beautiful. We did not have problems with wifi in the Galleria and all 8 of us had a wonderful time. It is a castle. The first night was cold but after the heat was on for a full day it heated up well. The main restaurant was closed as this was the last week of March but the other restaurant was open. The food was excellent. If you want the experience of a lifetime and don't need to be pampered Montegufoni is for you. We loved it and would recommend it to young and the young at heart.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

It was an amazingly beautiful place, however in November quite cold. We had to wear coats inside as radiators didn't quite make the castle warm. Otherwise, awesome place!

Review for stay from 03 August 2017 to 07 August 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at Castello di Montegufoni. The Galleria apartment was exactly what we were looking for when we were planning our group stay in an Italian castle. Stores and other restaurants were really close, so that was super helpful so we could stock our apartment with food and supplies. Highly recommended - we hope to come back someday!

Review for stay from 08 August 2015 to 10 September 2015

  • 5 of 5

Прекрасное расположение недалеко от Флоренции ,сумасшедшие виды на Тоскану ,идеальная чистота и сервис -все это сделало нас поклонниками Монтегуфони .

Наша семья никогда не возвращается в одно и то же место ,но мы изменили своим правилам лишь однажды

Мы второй раз на 2 месяца выбрали своим летним местом отдыха Монтегуфони.

Наши апартаменты Галерея действительно сказочное место ,куда хочется возвращаться снова и снова.

При замке отличный бассейн и ресторан .Удобное автобусное сообщение с Флоренцией ,но наличие машины сделает отдых более удобным.

  • 5 of 5

Наша семья провела незабываемые 3 недели в замке Монтегуфони(Галерея).Галерея это огромные апартаменты с восхитительными видами на холмы Тосканы. Безупречная чистота и обслуживание.Близость ко всем достопримечательностям Тосканы,делают замок необыкновенно привлекательным.Удивительный комфорт и уют в спальнях на верхних этажах и бесподобная галерея с потрясающими фресками на первом.Теплый чистый бассейн ,окруженный живой изгородью,круглосуточный wi-fi на рецепшен,хороший ресторан,близость автобусной остановки(50 метров от замка)все это создает ощущение комфортного прибывания. Монтегуфони это настоящая итальянская сказка.
