yours will be the only group on property

all the hotel's amenities, services, grounds, staff, and pool will be devoted to you and your fellow travellers for the duration of your stay, providing you with the truly special experience of complete privacy

All rooms showcase the beauty and character of an old Tuscan building but they are totally up to date in all other areas.  Muted colours and a careful blend of antique and modern furnishings create elegant rooms which are luxuriously comfortable and perfect for unwinding in.  Beds are big and comfortable, bathrooms have powerful showers (some have tubs too).  All toiletries are organic.  The property is fully air-conditioned and there are also mosquito nets at windows if you prefer the cooling valley breeze.  There is heating and a roaring log fire in winter.

We have things to make your stay easier; USB plug-in points for your IT, powerful hairdryers with long cables, and universal plugs so that you don't have to pack

your adapters.  

We don't have things which annoy you, such as piles of scatter cushions and

lamps you can't reach.

We have a small team of staff whose sole focus will be you and your group.

 HOW DO I BOOK?

there are three options

WE DESIGN
(Experiences)

This option is reserved for a small number of fully-inclusive vacations crafted by us.  

These itineraries are usually limited to a maximum of 12 participants, with places being booked individually or as a group.

We take care of everything; from the smallest details to the most-complicated specifics.  

You can learn more by clicking on the 'WE DESIGN' tab in the menu bar.
 

Ideal for guests who have never been to Tuscany before and don't quite know what they want to do; for those who have previously visited and now want to delve deeper into this wonderful country; or for those who don't have time to consider ideas for an itinerary.

Busy people, we understand you.

 

Please click on the 

'WE DESIGN' 

tab in the menu bar for more details.

 

YOU DESIGN

(Bespoke/Tailored)

This option gives you the flexibility to decide on an itinerary crafted especially and solely for you.

The cost will be based on what you would like to do and how you would like to do it.  We will discuss your ideas, adding advice and local knowledge along the way as required, and will then create a totally individual itinerary for your approval.   

You also have the choice of being accompanied by us or unaccompanied during your programme. 

You can learn more by clicking on the 'YOU DESIGN' tab in the menu bar.

Ideal for those who are looking to maximise their relaxation and down-time in Tuscany by delegating the planning, organising and fine-tuning of their vacation and itinerary.

We live here year-round and know which levers to pull to open the doors to the Tuscany you want to experience. Whether it's using our local knowledge to gain access to places which are only frequented by locals, to creating a luxurious itinerary with a translator by your side throughout.

 

We are also happy to offer advice, guidance, and introductions for other parts of Italy which you might like to visit before or after your stay with us.

A GUIDE TO COSTS

Costs are always fully inclusive of programme content AND your accommodation at iCastagni private hotel.
Our pre-designed vacations
always clearly state the price and what is included.

The cost of programmes designed by us especially for you, using your ideas and requests, are carefully discussed with you prior to going firm on programme content.  Our pre-designed vacations will help give you a guide on the costs you can expect to pay.  The cost of your package will of course include your exclusive-use accommodation at iCastagni private hotel.
 
Our costs are accurate and appropriate. Our satisfaction comes from your contentment, providing you with a first-class experience, and welcoming you back the following year, not from looking at our end-of-year spreadsheets.

Check in: from 1500 hours
Check out: the hotel is yours until 1100 hours on the morning of your departure

We know that every moment of your vacation counts and we always offer flexibility on timings when possible

REVIEW

We had been talking about visiting Europe, in particular Tuscany, for years but we knew we would only do it once and we wanted to make it perfect . When we learned about iCastagni and their programmes we knew we had found the ideal route.  The team at iCastagni were wonderful from beginning to end. From the moment we were greeted at the airport, to the moment we waved goodbye, we received top-level hospitality.  Our itinerary was well-designed and, essentially for us, well-paced.  We did so many wonderful things but still felt as though we had relaxed and let go of our busy lives.  So many wonderful memories and we would dearly love to do it again.  Thank you iCastagni.  We loved every minute.

Tuscany the best place

we look forward to meeting you

and welcoming you to Tuscany
