Excellent experience. Wonderful friendly staff, smiles and the fresh aroma of croissants to wake up to every day!
Beautiful location in Tuscany near Florence, Siena, San Gimignano. Outdoor terrace and pool for relaxing after visiting nearby sights.
Not suitable for people with limited mobility
Friendly staff, scenery, outside patios and terraces.
Room was much smaller (about 14 sqm), no room for chairs or a place the clothes/suitcase.
Our room was spacious and comfortable, and there was a great view from the window. The gardens were beautiful. The pool looked great, although it was too cold for swimming when we were there. It was fun to have all the different staircases to traverse, from the reception up to the bedrooms, and down to the terrace level for the dining room. Parking was easy. Internet only worked in the lounges, but they were comfortable to sit in. Information about local events was readily available, and the staff was also very helpful in this regard.
it's a lovely country house in a great setting with postcard Tuscan views - it's clean, very well decorated, spacious and has all the amenities one could hope for. The staff are excellent, very knowledgeable and helpful and are able to offer excellent advice on where to eat and what to see. A nice touch were the printed out directions for walking and running routes to the nearest towns. Also, a large jug of chilled ice tea for guests on warm afternoons.
the only thing we didnt like was that Il Casello is situated n a busy road that connects Greve and Panzano - and our room faced the road. As it was warm and the heating/aircon wasn't fully operational (the central heating had been turned on due to a cold spell before our arrival), we had to sleep with the windows wide open - and the traffic noise made sleep a challenge, not to mention the mosquitoes that dived bombed us most of the night. On the Saturday and Sunday - the road is a very popular route for motorcyclists and this constant nose can be very annoying.
The room was very big and comfortable. Julia was very helpful and informative and the Il Casello was a very charming place to stay.
We did not like having to use a key to lock a door and a gate every time we left and returned. It felt as if we were in an institution. :o) Also, the breakfast lacked variety and was fairly minimal. It was not ready, including no coffee or tea, our last morning there before we had to leave which was well after the breakfast opening time.
No, nothing at all!
Whilst in Tuscany, I find it best to "settle" at a location and then make day trips....Greve area is ideal for this concept and ll Casello is an ideal specific location. Not a lot of amenities, although for a bed and breakfast it is first rate with a fine pool, lovely breakfast, free parking....all under the auspices of super management.
Nice location between Panzano and Greve on the Chianti road, with great views. Very friendly, well-informed staff. Nice rooms, also on ground floor with terrace. Good-sized pool. Adequate breakfast. No restaurant but list and map available of all good restaurants in the neighbourhood, including the famous Officina della Bistecca in Panzano. Bottles of local wine for sale at reception. Free, shaded parking.
Some rooms are right on the Chianti road which is very busy during the day, less at night. Wi-fi only works in the reception area. And that is the only peeve I can think of...
location was great, travelled around and was nice and relaxing to come back to.
Julia had ever detail perfected. From a list of restaurants in the area to being able to having tea in your room she had everything covered. In all of Italy, I would have to say this was the best b&B. The breakfast was splendid and all of the staff were amazing. Loved the girl that put out the breakfast every morning. Huge smiles. Truly would recommend. Henry & Adriana
The staff was beyond wounderful. The BB sits right in the middle of many small towns and it only takes 10 minutes to get to anything. The room its self was not over the top but very pretty. The view was amazing. You are literrly 500 yards from one of the wine tasting vineyards. We would def. go back and bring our family and friends.
If I had to mention anything it would be the hot water. It did not get as hot as I preferr but I would still stay there!!!! :)
The beautiful views and friendly staff. The location... It's close to Greve and Ponzano on the Chianti Road. The lovely interior decorating.
Fantastic small hotel! Ms Julia is very friendly; she'll give you all information you need to travel around. Ask her for the Osteria Le Panzanelle; you must visit it!!! Very afforable prices, excellent (firts class!) food! Do not forget to make reservation in advance!!!
Great view from the patio for enjoying a drink or more outside. Breakfast included was very good. Better than many other hotels in Italy.
The hotel is not within walking distance of the restaurants. The closest restaurants are in Panzano which is within 1-2 kilometres from the hotel. Wlaking is feasible but cosiderng the steep hill to get there and the lack of side walks (this is a narrow counbtry road), most people would not want to walk it.
