Guestbook comments from the manager

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

Wonderful,comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our two-week stay at the apartment was everything we could have hoped for. The rooms are generous-sized, light-filled,comfortably and tastefully furnished. There are two balconies with magnificent views. Unfortunately the walls are high, and the views disappear when one is sitting down. This could easily be corrected by the owner by . replacing the existing furniture with comfortable, high bar chairs and an elevated table. While the location is convenient, it is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking up a steep hill or climbing stairs. Toscalinda contributed to the quality of our stay. It was a treat.

This is one of the best places we've ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay in Panzano. The castle was everything we could have hoped it would be. It's in the perfect location right in the center of the historical part of town. It's within walking distance to everything. And while we loved going out to visit the local dinner spots, the views were spectacular at the castle that we enjoyed simply cooking and eating in, having our super on the balcony overlooking the view of the hills beyond.

Michiel was the perfect host. We kept adding additional days to our stay as we enjoyed it so much and he was excellent with communication and adjustments to our schedule.

The next time we are in Tuscany we hope to stay at the castle again!

Best view in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the charming apartment, and especially enjoyed the views of the valley below. We had a difficult time finding it, but with help of a few locals, we moved in. It requires strength to get the suitcases up a steep hill and a flight of stairs, so might not be a good choice for the elderly. We hope to return to Panzano again. In this small town, there is a wonderful restaurant within walking distance called Ristorante IL Vescovino. You must try the Tiramisu. The wines in the Panzano area are highly rated, and the people very friendly. We cooked delicious food in the well equipped apartment , and enjoyed the wines, mostly Chianti Classico and Super Tuscans. If you need to know something about the apartment, the woman across the hall is extremely helpful.

Wonderful castle stay

  • 4 of 5

This wonderful apartment deserves five stars, except for one issue that may not be of concern to some visitors. Unfortunately, we arrived after dark on our first day and had difficulty finding the apartment despite having fairly good directions from Michiel and after having touched based with Toscalinda, Michiel's contact for the apartment. So, I would highly recommend arrival during daylight hours. But, the place has incredible views overlooking the countryside around Panzano, and it is very well furnished in both modern and rustic ways. At arrival, it is a steep climb with luggage up a driveway to the building that houses the apartment, through a gravel walkway and then courtyard and a flight of stairs. While you can drop off your luggage close to the apartment, parking is a bit of a walk after that. There is much to do in the area for the adventuresome, and many interesting hill towns are a short drive away. Panzano is a nice little town. I bought a hand painted coffee mug there at the local hardware store, and we enjoyed the local wine festival one afternoon.

This castle was so magical, I felt like I should have had a crown

  • 5 of 5

Panzano was a great little village situated right in a perfect area for touring Tuscany. We only stayed a couple nights, but wished we would've had more time here. The castle was beyond my expectations. We absolutely loved the view and hope a stay there again is in our future.

Chianti is referred to in Tuscany as La Regina, or the Queen. Appropriately so, since Chianti has the highest level of quality of life at your feet ! It is the winearea where the famous Chianti Classico is produced, and the trademarked Gallo Nero wines are made here, and they are ready for you to try them ! Finely positioned between Florence and Siena, culture is never far, and in spring and summer, an unstoppable quantity of events are ready for you to savour : wine tastings, antique markets, concerts, opera, open air cinema, drives through the countryside, cooking lessons, riding lessons and tours, it is all there at your fingertips. Check out the many charming villages in the area like La Volpaia, Montefioralle, Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, and many others. The Vino al Vino, the winefestivities in september, attracts a crowd every year. Sundays Panzano has a sunday market, and once a month there is a craftsman market for bric a brac and fun shopping.

Panzano and Chianti have the best restaurants of Italy, and it is a true foodies paradise.
