Bringing together homely luxury and world-class wine, the Castello di Spaltenna is a classic escape in rural Tuscany.
Set amid the rolling vineyards of Chianti, the Castello di Spaltenna is fantastic for wine lovers, but even teetotallers will find a lot to love in the fairytale castle setting, proximity to beautiful Florence, and rich sense of history – some of the buildings here stretch back over a thousand years.

Description, Services & Facilities
With a beautiful location in rural Chianti, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Castello di Spaltenna is a playground for foodies and anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. The property itself is a grand Tuscan villa, some parts of which date back over a millennium, and the luxurious accommodations pay homage to the hotel’s heritage while promising a supremely comfortable stay. Tours of the surrounding area will, of course, see you sampling the region’s famous wine, with the acclaimed winery of Castagnoli just a short drive away; also nearby is Badia a Caltibuono, a beautiful farmhouse set in an ancient abbey, where you’ll enjoy hearty, traditional Tuscan cuisine accompanied by some of the region’s finest wine. After a tough day’s tastings, put your feet up in the Castello’s indulgent spa, with its sauna, tepidarium and Turkish bath.
