Castello Accommodations

Castello is a tiny hamlet located in the province of Massa and Carrara in Tuscany region of Italy. It is named after the two main towns in its territory: Carrara and Massa, its capital. Castello is located between Florence and Pisa and less than an hour from either. With the proximity to theses major centers make Castello a great base. It offers select accommodations and lodging ranging from spacious vacation rentals and villa rentals to more charming condo rentals and apartment rentals.

Castello is perched among vine and olive groves above the village of Valdottavo and the Serchio valley. With medieval origins, the 20 or so villas have looked just as they do today for around 250 years, and most have been home for generations of Italian families. There is no shop or bar, and it is a haven of peace and tranquility. A narrow road – with some interesting bends - winds up the couple of miles to Castello. There are bars and shops in Valdottavo and by strolling just 20 minutes down the ancient and pretty mule path, a reminder of the days - still remembered by older residents - when it was the only way of reaching Castello. The accommodation, vacation rental, apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental choices might be limited but no less full of character.

The Malaspina Castle in Massa, 70km south of Castello, represents one of the most important complexes in Tuscany and it can be considered an open air museum. It has been transformed during the centuries: from a keep, a high fortified tower of the XI century, it changed in Renaissance becoming a residence with new defensive. In the second half of XVII century its main function is military. The whole complex has been recently reopened to the public after many years of refurbishing. Stay in any of Massa’s beautiful accommodations, vacation rentals, apartment rentals and villa rentals.

The province of Massa-Carrara is situated on the border with Liguria and Emilia Romagna and is characterized by an extensive coastal area rich in tourist accommodation and lodging that range from smaller condo rental and apartment rental to more spacious vacation rental and villa rental choices. The town is a short distance from the sea; the Apuane Alps are a paradise for nature lovers and excursionists, both in summer and in winter, offering the possibility to stay in comfortable mountain huts.

There are 3 shower rooms, one on each floor, and 2 fully equipped kitchens ensure modern comfort, yet marrying perfectly with the classic furniture. Both living rooms have comfortable sitting areas with settees which can convert to double beds on request, and the lounge on the ground floor also has a characteristic fireplace, a specially commissioned hand painted mural depicting the beautiful landscape, and arched patio doors which open onto the large patio and garden. Within the well kept grounds close to the house is the large swimming pool (14m x 7m) which is private to the villa and has a lovely view over the countryside. The house and its garden is fully enclosed, and has its own parking area. It is only 2km from San Gimignano and its selection of shops and excellent local restaurants, and many of the regions other sights are within easy driving distance. Florence and Siena are both easily accessible via main road and rail links from nearby Poggibonsi.

    This comfortable, well equipped 90 square metre apartment is ideal for a couple or small family. It occupies the most ancient part of our beautifully restored stone farmhouse, revealing small traces of its 13th century origins during the restoration. The apartment sits below the main house, which was restored by us some years ago as a family home. This much loved and cared for property is still more family home than holiday rental. We return from Australia every year to maintain, fix, renew and update everything that needs attention. Both the house and the apartment were freshly painted throughout in 2016. The apartment restoration was done with the same attention to quality and detail as the main house upstairs. The two properties can be rented separately or together for larger groups. Please see Property ID 231966. Totally independent from the main house, the apartment has its own driveway and entrance (although both are at ground level because of the slope of the land). It is very spacious, refreshingly cool in summer and cosy in winter. Additional power supply supports the appliances, it has reliable plumbing and strong water pressure, and all the windows have screens, internal cypress shutters and pretty views across the valley. Traditional farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals at home, and the comfortable living spaces and good range of DVDs make a quiet night in a viable option. The apartment provides welcome respite after a busy day's sightseeing. While it does not share the main house garden, it does have its own private little dining terrace which faces the valley and our cypress lined track, and of course there are the surrounding woodland areas. The forest offers up its bounty such as porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who gather in small family groups to enjoy the tranquillity on sunny weekends. There are many lovely walks around the property, or just take a glass of Chianti to the bench in our little olive grove and watch the sunset. The property nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a fabulous restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence (about a 25 minute drive) gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from this peaceful rural setting. Although we don’t live on site, we do have a loyal group of friends and retainers equipped to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. A booklet of information at the apartment covers the A to Z of how everything works, plus it lists local support phone numbers. We encourage guests to sms us with any concerns so we can ensure a quick resolution of any issue. Ahead of the trip, all our guests receive a comprehensive booklet (PDF) of tips and recommendations for things to do and places to go. These are some of our favourite things, compiled over years of experience in Tuscany and other parts of Italy. It’s quite extensive and, like the house, is updated each year. Some guests find it useful, particularly first time visitors to Italy.

    This beautifully restored free-standing stone farmhouse, with a fully independent 90 square metre apartment below, provides a secluded haven after the bustle of sightseeing. Our Italian friends call it a jewel. Both the main house, and the apartment (see separate listing), can be rented separately or together for a larger group. Restored by us some years ago as a family home, with great attention to detail, this much loved and cared for property is still more family home than holiday rental. We return from Australia every year to maintain, fix, renew, update and replenish everything that needs attention. It was freshly painted throughout in 2016. Furnished and equipped to a high standard, it is a house to feel at home in. The generous country kitchen features a large antique table to share meals around. It is the heart of the home. A huge oak refectory table and antique boudoir grand loaded with family photos dominate the dining and living rooms. Sadly, having made the journey from the south of Italy to Australia then back to Tuscany, the piano is now more ornamental than musical. Antique farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in, and the comfy Natuzzi sofas make a quiet night in with a DVD a viable option. Additional power supply supports the many appliances. There's reliable plumbing and strong water pressure. All windows have screens and internal cypress shutters. In summer the 400m elevation promotes refreshing breezes, while the thick stone walls help cool the interior. Efficient central heating keeps it warm and cosy in the cooler months. (Unfortunately the fireplace shown in the photo doesn't work.) The house nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a fabulous restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from our tranquil rural setting. Set in its own private fenced garden in a rural neighbourhood of farmhouses, olive groves and vegetable patches, each window of the house has a pretty outlook over the garden or the cultivated valley. The lawn is often scattered with daisies, and fireflies sometimes come out at night. The garden overlooks the Arno valley towards the Vallombrosa Monastery, nestled in the magnificent oak and pine woodlands of the central Apennines. The surrounding forest offers up its bounty of porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who gather in small family groups to walk off Sunday lunch and enjoy the peace on sunny weekends. Depending on the season, around the house and garden you may find grapes, plums, raspberries, apricots and figs. The squirrels usually get the hazelnuts and almonds. Although we don’t live on site, we do have a loyal group of friends and retainers equipped to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. A booklet of information at the house covers the A to Z of how things work, plus support phone numbers.

    The view from here is - "just stunning but wait until you see the pool..." ... Villa is - "simply beautiful " Two comments form guests in August 2016 Villa is for sure, a really special property for both friends and families to enjoy. Tucked away on the sleepy hillside of Castiglion Fiorentino and where guests can make this their "home from home" - The property welcomed its first guests in May 2016, - The villa is set within an olive grove where the visible ruins of an ancient defence castle of Castiglion Fiorentino can be explored and enjoyed. Adjacent to the larger villa is a (deconsecrated) church from the 12th century which has also being restored. The Villa and its annex provide three bedrooms, three bathrooms, modern kitchens, 2 sitting rooms, a vast terrace with some of the loveliest views of the valley and the town of Castiglion along with the private Infinity Edge pool - strategically situated to enjoy the fabulous views. It is about 3 km from the town, where there are many restaurants, bars and shops and, there is also small shop,bar and restaurant just across the valley if you did not want to travel into the town, Much like the other villas here, this is also a good location - an excellent base to explore Tuscany its many hill towns, festivals, wineries and countryside including easy easy day trips to Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena etc - Florence is also easy by either car (1 hour) or by train from our local station. This is one of our first reviews from May 2016. A first review says: “The houses are surrounded by a beautiful old olive grove. There are two terraces overlooking the valley and a very nice infinity swimming pool. The view is breathtaking. I have been in this valley before but the view here beats everything. There is a small terrace in the back to catch the early morning sun. The large (Giant) terraces in the front catch the sun from 10 am to sunset. For people like me who love to read in the shade : plenty of shade available under the surrounding trees. The olive groves around the houses are actually grassy meadows, ideal for children's play. In the woods on top of the hill behind the house lie the remains of a 13 th century castle. You have to drive up a drivable access road from the valley floor to reach this house. The next and only other house is 100 m down. The road continues up the hill for another 1.6 km, winding through beautiful olive groves and forests, offering breathtaking views. Then then for easy hiking, road changes into a hiking trail that joins the hiking trail that circumvent the valley. We were the first occupants in a newly developed property. We were two couples and stayed a week in May 2016. The property consist of two houses. The smaller one , just a few meters away, has one bedroom, with a king size bed, bathroom and a living space with kitchen. Tho main house has two bedrooms, with king size bed and the other with two single beds. The main house has two bathrooms. A dining room, sitting room and separate kitchen. Hendrik, NL.
