Our Guests say


A beautiful place to stay.

We recently stayed at Castello di Tornano as the final night of a week in Tuscany. On arrival we were taken to our room in the tower which combined comfort with the medieval feel of the building. Great views can be had from the top of the tower and we spent an enjoyable couple of hours tasting their own produced wine before an incredibly filling dinner. With a set menu per day, you are a bit restricted but if you don’t fancy any of the courses they adjust the menu price down accordingly. A pleasant breakfast the next day and we were on our way home. We’d recommend staying in the castle, rather than the out buildings, to get the full experience of staying here especially with it being November as we didn’t have time to really appreciate the grounds. The one downside was not being able to check in until 3pm, particularly as we were only staying one night.

Hotel description

The Castello di Tomano is an exceptionally romantic castle hotel dating back to the 11th century. It is situated in the heart of the Chianti region, which is a top spot for wine lovers to visit. But if you want to experience the charm of a genuine knight’s castle, then you’re also in the right place. Both the secluded location and the well-maintained building of this medieval castle win couples and history lovers over within seconds. The former dungeon is today home to the wine cellar. The prettiest rooms are the historically furnished suites in the main wing. At the top of the tower you’ll find a sun terrace with unforgettable views over the surrounding wooded countryside.
Castle hotel: Romantic tower rooms & grand four-poster beds
Whichever part of the Castello di Tornano you’re in, it’s impossible to not feel like you’ve taken a trip back in time. The dominant main building with its meter-thick walls, stone staircases and impressive tower has a history of almost a thousand years. The guest rooms are spread between the main building, the tower and a few farm buildings and servants’ quarters on the grounds. On your way to your room you’ll spot real suits of armor, as well as antique paintings, lamps and furniture from a range of eras. The guest rooms themselves are also finished in a historic style with baldachin beds and antique furniture under rustic wooden beams. In short: a really pretty picture!
