This was one of the most amazing places we have stayed at while on vacation. The Castle's beauty and architecture is incredible. The apartment was connected to a beautiful garden overlooking the hills of Tuscany and the town of Greve. The gardens have a lot of places to sit and relax while overlooking the valley. Rosita and Rita's hospitality was perfect. On the day we arrived Rita made us dinner and it was excellent. They served a bottle of wine with dinner that they had made from their vineyard and it was outstanding. On our final night, Rita gave us cooking lessons. It was fun and we learned so much about authentic Italian cooking. Rita has a cookbook with her recipes that we got in hopes of duplicating her cooking when we returned home. From the castle, we walked into town. The town of Greve is really cool. Great shops, restaurants and people. There is a small grocery store and lots of places to buy wines. On our first full day, we hired a driver recommended by Rosita and toured the wineries. This was an unbelievable wine experience and included wineries that you cannot find on the internet. While staying at the Castle we had plans to visit Florence and Rome, but never did. We stayed in the local area and spent a lot of time at the Castle as this is a very special place. Rosita and Rita are wonderful and kind people and we are grateful that they opened up their beautiful Castle for us to stay. We will return.
This is a fantastic property. Louisa was helpful, accommodating and available. The location is great, close to Florence and Sienna, as well as many other beautiful Tuscany towns. The grocery store is a short drive and plentiful. We enjoyed walking to the Antinori winery where the lunch is amazing. There are several incredible restaurants within a short driving distance that were all memorable dining experiences. The kids loved the pool. We loved the kitchen and sitting outside to eat, drink and enjoy the view. The castle is huge and offers plenty of room for a large group.
