Castel Pietraio is located deep in the Tuscan countryside, just 10 minutes from the perfectly preserved walled village of Monteriggioni and less than half an hour from beautiful Siena.

This medieval castle, once important for defending the area, now offers peaceful, relaxing accommodation in a stunning setting. On site you will find a large open-air swimming pool with lovely views, a children’s playground and a barbecue area.

Rooms inside 17th-century Castel Pietraio are furnished and decorated in keeping with their history, with exposed wooden beams and terracotta tiles as well as all modern comforts.

In a tranquil but easily-accessible area, from Castel Pietraio you can be at San Gimignano in half an hour, as well as numerous other pretty historic towns. If you prefer to stay closer to home, you can go horseriding, walking or cycling directly from the castle and just 550 yards away is a village with shops and restaurants.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.

Castel Pietraio has been welcoming guests since 21 Apr 2008.

Mauro Neri Del Nero
Staying in Castel Pietraio and its hamlet surrounded by vineyards you can experience the thrill of living in authentic Tuscany where Guelphs and Ghibellines fought, but also where the peasants worked the land to produce all the Tuscan specialties.
my mission is to make guests feel at home, helping them to discover the treasures of Tuscany
If you are a lover of the Middle Ages, from Castel Pietraio you can reach all the most important historical and artistic cities of Tuscany: Monteriggioni, Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Pienza, Volterra, without forgetting San Galgano and the true legend of the sword in the stone.
