Upon reaching the castle via a long gravel track you are greeted with a warm Tuscan welcome and the amazing aromas of Aurora’s Tuscan kitchen.
Rooms are located around a central courtyard which is used during the day and evening as a tranquil dining space. All of the rooms are individually designed with many unique pieces of furniture picked up from around the world by the owners, Aurora and Carlo Baccheschi Berti.

When to go
The Mediterranean climate makes Tuscany a year round destination. It is important to remember that the main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of September with July and August being peak months. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is usually good, prices lower and there are "fewer" tourists. Many have also discovered the advantages of visiting during the "low season" (winter and early spring) as rates are lower and the reduced number of tourists is visible.
