Castelmuzio (Siena) - Val D'Orcia - Tuscany

Le Casine di Castello is a place for all ages, for families with kids, for couples of every stage of life, for small families wanting to have a family reunion, for old college friends wanting to celebrate a “certain age” together, for honeymooners, for babymooners, for those who want an active vacation, and for those who want to enjoy the “dolce far niente" (the sweetness of doing nothing).

So, you may wonder why we say Le Casine di Castello is for ALMOST everyone—and so we tell you.

Nothing pleases us more than to hear our guests say, “this place is even better than we imagined!” or “our week exceeded our expectations!” or “we can’t wait to come back next year and bring our family!” In other words, our goal is to meet or exceed your expectations.

There are a few travel expectations, however, that we cannot meet—and so we tell you upfront what these are in case these are important for you. There aren’t so many, but we want you to know that:

  • Le Casine di Castello is a self-catered stay. It is not a B&B; and, nor do we offer full- or half-board stays

  • We do not have a restaurant on the premises. We do not provide breakfast, or other meals on a regular basis.

    However, there are two exceptions to this that we wish to note. During the primary season, once a week as part of our Dolce Vita stay, we offer a handmade pasta class which is followed by a large Tuscan dinner. Also, it is possible to have a local chef (based on availability) come to your apartment and give a cooking lesson—which then becomes a delicious meal to eat on the premises.

  • Le Casine di Castello is a highly rated vacation stay, but it is not a 5-star city hotel

  • Perhaps you have seen the reviews for Le Casine di Castello on Trip Advisor, Rick Steves’ website, Slow Trav, Slow Europe or other sites—and you have noted that many people really rave about their stay. Our assistance, our concierge service, our care for our guests is 6-star! but our services do not include swanky amenities you would expect at a 5-star hotel in a major city: room service, bellhops, gourmet restaurant, wood-paneled bar, business office center, front office desk clerk (we don’t even have a front office!), beauty shop, gift shop, etc.

  • Le Casine di Castello is located in a tiny medieval village; not an action-packed city

  • Castelmuzio is a village of 200 local people—most of whom have lived here their entire lives. It is a close community where everyone knows each other very, very well. There is a local bar, two restaurants, and a small grocery store. There are beautiful stone lanes and alleyways throughout the historic center, with panoramic views of the Tuscan hills from the village. This is THE place to stay for authenticity, serenity, and beauty. But if you are looking for music, discos, souvenir shops, other tourists to interact with, and high stimulation—this is not for you.

    If you prefer a more “social” place, where you can meet and be together with other travelers and share your time with them, come and stay at Cretaiole, our family-run agriturismo that is located 10 minutes away.

    Le Casine di Castello is:

  • ideal for those who are looking for privacy and independent living
  • perfect if you love to be on your own most of the time, and be part of a small group when activities are planned.
  • the perfect choice for people who are looking for an authentic Tuscan village experience, within a community of local Tuscans rather than other travelers.

  • Le Casine di Castello does not have a swimming pool

  • Just because we do not have a swimming pool on the property does not mean that you cannot find GREAT swimming while you are here. To see more about this topic, please click here.
