Review 1508: Perla Toscana, Castello di Grotti


Review by weslie from US

apartments in a castle, south of Siena, Tuscany South


June, 2005, one night


My husband and I took 'the wrong road' and discovered this wonderful place to stay. This castle has been in the owner's family for centuries - was built in the 10th century. The newly converted apartments are charming, comfortable queen size bed, beautiful and functional antique furniture, clean and functional bathroom and kitchen. The ceilings are very high, painted with frescos. It is on a picturesque hillside, overlooking miles and miles of Tuscan beauty. There is a small restaurant on the property, and another 5 minutes away by foot.

The owners are wonderful and helpful. The price is very reasonable. This is a great getaway place - it's no more than 20 minutes south of Siena, and it's pin-drop quiet. There are beautiful gardens outside. You can go mingle with the tourists all day, then come back to complete serenity and comfort at night.

We highly recommend Castello di Grotti.
