Highly Recommended

Fabulous property including onsite gourmet dining and spa. Great location to navigate all of Tuscany, especially the Chianti wine region. The rooms were lovely, large and well appointed. The staff was warm and helpful. The free shuttle to Florence and Siena makes it easy to stay here rather than in Florence to enjoy both the beauty and peace and quiet of the countryside as well as the art and history of Florence.

Secluded Spa

By: Deana10

Reviewed on: 25 Oct 2015

We stayed here for 4 nights on our trip and had an amazing room. We unfortunately did not get to enjoy the spa. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. It felt extremely secluded and was away from all the hustle and bustle but it was conveniently located within a 15 minute drive of many villages and wonderful places to see and things to do.

My own private castle in Tuscany!

By: SweetRoget

Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2016

Should I repeat the headline? My own private castle in Tuscany! Oh- details? A fabulous lunch paired with Italian vino on a vista overlooking rolling hills of grape vines. Adventurous hikes across property originally developed centuries ago. World class spa with massage, unique hot tubs and state-of-the art showers. Tennis anyone? Remarkable and unique!

What a View

By: Frank and Lola

Reviewed on: 25 Oct 2016

We loved the Castello del Nero Hotel. Our room was very nice and the view was spectacular. The staff went our of their way to make us feel welcome. Even though we were captive, we felt we had options with the two restaurants and the pub. The food was very good and there were many options. The room was very clean and all of the services were over the top. This was exactly what we expected in Tuscany.

Florence Area Hotel

By: SteveO

Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

If you are going to the Florence area, you have to stay in Tavarnelle Val Di Pesa which is about 30 minutes or so south of Florence. Castello del Nero is in the Tavarnelle countryside. It is the finest hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms are large, the complex spotless, the view amazing and the staff are world class. When we return to Italy, there is no doubt we will stay at Castello del Nero - even as I write this note, I want to go back.

Amazing place with great amenities and a beautiful area. Must do the helicopter tour over Tuscany, it was magical. Staff was wonderful and there for us every step of the way. Would not have found it if not for Rainbow travel.
