                                        We honeymooned in this spectacular castle! The Tuscan view from the castle terrace is breath taking. The view and the castle's charm will forever be embedded in our hearts and souls. We had everything we needed. The apartment was clean, neat, appropriately furnished, very comfortable, and the location is accessible to many wonderful adventures from wine tastings to the most famous butcher in the world!

                                        We just concluded our 1 week stay in this spacious castle apartment. Apartment is possibly even better than described. You know those paintings you see of Tuscany and you think maybe the artist is taking some artistic liberties? The view you have from the front balcony is even better than that! Truly spectacular scenery. Vineyards & olive trees as far as the eye can see. Panzano is the perfect location from which to explore the entire area of Tuscany. You will find that you don’t have to leave the village to find a great winery and excellent restaurants. You have 2 excellent restaurants about a 1 minute walk from the castle. The cafes, bars and enotecas offered great places for morning coffee, gelato or a relaxing glass of wine. We found everyone to be very friendly and helpful. Definitely do not miss the Sunday market. We stocked up on cheeses, fruit and vegetables for the entire week’s breakfasts. You can also get toiletry items. Best of all you can buy incredible leather goods (purses, wallets, belts) for extremely good prices. Do bring Euros since many of the vendors do not take credit cards. The little grocery stores had the meats and bread not found at the market. Get your bread (don’t miss the dark bread) from the little store just down the hill from the church on the right hand side. Apartment was clean and well maintained. The “housekeeper/property manager” was very friendly and helpful. When she saw us coming or going she made sure we were finding everything and enjoying our stay. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend highly to our friends.

                                        My husband and I had a wonderful week staying here. It is spacious and comfortable, with the best view from the balcony that you will find. It is a great location from which to make day trips in Chianti or just to chill in Panzano. It really made our week special and we highly recommend this property.

                                        We had a wonderful week staying in the Castle. Although a little hard to find initially (make sure you get exact directions), that was forgotten as soon as we walked up the stairs and saw the magnificent view. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated and well equipped for self catering. The view from the balcony is truly breathtaking. It was a great base for day trips to Siena, Florence, Volterra and San Gimagnano. Being a hot summer week, we especially appreciated being able to use the pool at the nearby B&B, though as others have said the road there is a little tricky. Another highlight of the week was a visit to the Accademia Dell Buon Gusto and the time we spent there with Stefano who’s love for life (and wine) is contagious. Also having restaurants and an alimentary just 100 metres down the main street from the castle was great. One drawback is that there is no car parking at the Castle and, if you have a car, you will need to park it in the public parking area which is within view of the Castle. We would thoroughly recommend Panzano and the Castle to anyone planning a holiday in Tuscany.

                                        Owner response: Dear guest, we take your comment regarding parking very seriously. When you arrive at the castle, you can temporarily access the park of the castle, in order to unload your luggage. just mention it to our loyal housekeeper Toscalinda, who will then give you directions. After arriving there, there is a 40 meters horizontal walk to the entrance of the Castle,and a flight of stairs in order to reach the apartment, and the best view of Tuscany. after this, you can park the car at 50 meters from the house, so thee is no real need to descend until the public parkinglot.

                                        Dear Michiel, I am sending this e-mail from the balcony of the castle awaiting sunset. We cannot possibly imagine a better place to stay for honeymoon than right here. We have so enjoyed your apartment and suggestions. Il vescovino was absolutely wonderful and we had several fun evenings with Paulo and Brian at Il vinaio. We will go for dinner at Dario's tonight and are looking forward to it! The kitchen was perfect for cooking a few dinners and Toscalinda could not have been nicer and more helpful. Thanks to her we had a nice drive and afternoon at Volpaia. We explored SanGimignano, Florence, Greve in Chianti and several vineyards in the Panzano area. It has been a spectacular week. We must leave tomorrow afternoon as we go to look for my new husband's relatives in Castel del Monte in Abruzzo. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience staying in your castle... the view of the chianti classico region is likely the finest in the area and we feel so lucky to be on the 6th sunset with such wonderful weather! We hope to return in the future and will recommend your home to everyone we know traveling to the chianti region of Italy... an absolutely perfect place to relax and enjoy this beautiful area of Italy! Warm regards,Theresa and Christopher JerussiWashington DC, USA

                                        Mon fiancé m'a fait la surprise de m'amener dans ce chateau du Chianti cet été et je n'avais pas passé de vacances aussi délicieuses! la vue du balcon est magnifique, avec le coucher de soleil sur toute la vallée de Pesa. L'appartement a un cachet exceptionnel et c'est un lieu très romantique! je le conseille à tous ceux qui,comme nous cherchait un nid d'amour au coeur de la Toscane. On y retourne l'année prochaine!

                                        The two of us stayed here in July and had an Unforgettable time in our Castle. The Apartment really set the mood for our long anticipated holiday to Tuscany and was more than we had expected. The view from the apartment takes your breathe away with so many shades of Greens and Browns and on a good day we could see San Gimignano in the morning. The Apartment is very well equipped. We had brought things from home just incase, but we did not need them. The benefit of the Stove running on Gas was very helpful when we lost the power briefly after a Lighting storm. Our Hostess Tuscalinda was wonderful. We needed her assistance after a lightning storm and she sorted it out immediately. The Location is also ideal if you are looking to travel a little around the Chianti region (But you would need a Car!!). Panzano is 45-60 mins drive from Sienna, Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca and Pisa (We saw all of them over 5 days and still had time to come back and relax with a Chianti Classico on the Balcony each evening:). It takes a little longer than driving the highways, but the 222 is not to be missed. We got our best photos driving back to Panzano most late afternoons. At this time of the day, it also has such a great aroma from the vineyards and surrounding farms. The option of the pool was also a bonus. The road can be a little difficult at times particularly on the way back up from the property after you have enjoyed the dip. I would highly recommend this property and location. Im already planning a return trip with my mother when she visits next year. Thank you Michael for opening up your piece of History to the Commoners.

                                        The listing was spot on, clean and well stocked with all the neccessities. Everything is accurate and much more beautiful in person. The owner and the care giver were helpful understanding and had great information on the area. Go to the in town 8 pm buthchers dinner awesome meal if you love meat. I think Dario is his name awesome time. I would definately recommend this property to a friend and relative and already have. The local wine tasting was great as well as the meat market down the street. The town is quiet and quaint we got alot of exercise just walking around town. Great shopping at the outlets only 45 minute drive away. We will definately come back.

                                        I stayed for two weeks in your place in Panzano and I doubt if I'll ever forget them. There was much to see and do--Dario's butcher shop, the Sunday market, the world-class restaurants in the village, the proximity and beautiful drive to other villages in the region--places like Volpaia--but there was so much beauty and peace just being in the castle that I returned home to San Francisco much restored. I can't recommend Michiel's place highly enough.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, sightseeing.

                                        Dear Michiel, What an amazing property ! This was the best holiday we ever had, Panzano is an ideal place to visit, and the wonderful and comfortable house could not be more suitable for visiting Tuscany. We will definitely book again in spring ! Warm regards
