Outstanding experience for our whole family! The Castle was magnificent in every way. The Wine Tour was phenomenal and a must do for guests! The hosts kindness to all of us was truly appreciated. You will not be disappointed if you stay at Costello Volognano!
Wonderful stay at a wonderful castle!
Over the course of a week, my American and Italian family (14 people in total!) met at Castle Volognano. It is truly a magical place. The owners and staff were lovely - thank you Alberto, Patrizia, Claudia and Jacopo! It is also worth mentioning that the daily cleaning service is very helpful and we highly suggest getting the refrigerator stocked for your arrival as well as doing one buffet dinner. The grounds and views are stunning and there is even a family of turtles living in the gardens. Yes, turtles! What's not to love? We also recommend taking a tour of the winery. Jacopo was outstanding and hilarious. We hope to return someday.
Thanks so much!
Most amazing Tuscany adventure ever
The castle and staff was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for more. Was right out of a movie
thans a lot for your positive feedback!
it has been a pleasure to host you and we replay look forward to have you back soon!
First impression was amazing, it truely is a castle! We are a family of 14 adults ranging ages 79 to 24, everyone loved it! The one draw back is the accommodations for the 2 extra people, there are only 6 bedrooms, so they put 2 cots in an area off the hall away upstairs, there is not a door and not much air circulation. The entire property was immaculately maintained. Iacopo was a pleasure to deal with during our stay. We did the tour of the vineyard with him and a tasting as well, very enjoyable! We cooked in the well appointed kitchen. On our last night we had the villa arrange for a chef to prepare our last dinner, Magnifico!!!! Oh, last but certainly not least, the wine and the olive oil and the wine are fabulouso! Thank you so much to Iacopo for being so helpful during our stay! We wish we could have stayed longer.
Many thanks for your kind reference we hope to see you and all your family another time in Volognano Castle
Amazing property and breathtaking. Perfect for a family gather.
This was the perfect experience for my family. We had an amazing, but really amazing five days. The staff was great and location was perfect. Castle is really well kept. Rooms are spacious and well distributed. The pool is perfect and living room, bedrooms kitchen are well furnished. The owner was great in helping us create experiences at the castle (dinners, cooking classes, etc.). Overall my best experience with HomeAway.
Perfect setting for our weekend away
We had a wonderful stay in Volognano Castle over a long weekend in July. There was more than plenty of room for the 10 of us to all hang out either by the pool, in one of the many beautifully decorated rooms, or (our favourite) sat at the table outside watching the sun set over the rolling hills.
The castle is located fairly close to a big Coop which was handy in stocking up on delicious fresh food which was later cooked in the well stocked kitchen.
I would highly recommend Volognano to anyone who wants to really enjoy the Tuscan countryside in style!
Many thanks for your kind reference
