Additional Location Information
Castello di Pastine - a pearl of the 14th century upon a hill which dominates the peaceful and relaxing Chianti's countryside. Located in Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, the castle offers charming holiday apartments and villas for rent in a 14 hectares park with panoramic terrace, large swimming pool, BBQ, and tennis court yard.
The Castello di Pastine, a XIV century residence rises up on a hill dominating one of the most splendid views of Tuscany, surrounded by a park and gardens with grand lawns and a century-old wood of 14 hectares, all belonging to the estate. In the park there is also a large swimming pool with a marvelous outlook over San Gimignano, the ancient towered medieval town, a tennis or five-a-side football ground, trails through the private park and an ample area equipped with barbecue, grill and wood oven. The specific location of the property, as well as offering quiet and tranquility with a unique panoramic view which has remained unaltered since 1300, is also an excellent point of departure for pleasant day trips to the surrounding countryside; the historic cities of Florence and Siena are little more than half an hour away. The unique atmosphere of Castello di Pastine will enchant you, making you forget the stress of everyday life and providing the peace and relaxation you’re looking for.
The property is situated inside a spectacular park which, with its romantic paths and breathtaking perspectives, provides the opportunity for pleasant walks immersed in nature.
The 9 x 18 m swimming pool has areas reserved for each apartment and fully equipped with deck chairs, sun beds and wooden pergolas ( Parasols tents ). Near the swimming pool there is an Hot Tub ( hydromassage ) with hydro-jets, which has space for 5 people.
The tennis/five-a-side football ground is in synthetic grass; close by there is also a ping-pong table and a small skating rink for children. Next by the tennis court yard, there is a playground for kids, with a sling and a slide, as well as a new volleyball net.
Trekking trails in the woods of the park are reserved exclusively for the use of guests while not far from the property there are excellent restaurants where you can enjoy dishes that have made Tuscan cooking famous throughout the world.
Just a few minutes away by car are supermarkets, shops and sports activities (golf, horse riding, bike hire etc...) which our staff will be pleased to help you choose from. We’re looking forward to welcoming you.
Castello di Pastine is situated in an excellent position a little over 30 km from Florence and Siena, both of which can be reached within half an hour. About 11 km away is the fascinating town of Certaldo, a medieval fortress and the native city of Boccaccio— one of the fathers of Italian literature and the author of the Decameron. San Gimignano, the well-preserved medieval city of towers is just 15 km away, while Volterra, a historic Etruscan city, can be reached driving along 43 km of the most beautiful roads in Tuscany, part of the Volterrana: the legendary road for people who love to drive through the countryside, by car or by bike! Then, if you want to taste or buy some excellent wine, you don’t have to go very far to visit the wine cellars where the most famous red wine in the world is made, Chianti Classico.
Throughout the year the Tuscan towns and cities are animated by fairs, festivals, theme-celebrations and historic re-enactments from the middle ages with street markets, suppers, tastings and fireworks.
Castello di Pastine, with its genuine Tuscan style offers you peace and tranquility at the right distance from the places of major interest in Tuscany.
You will need a car to reach us, since there are no public transportation in the area. There is plenty of free parking place inside our fenced park.

The tourism tax rate for this accommodation facility is Euro 1,50 per person per night, and it is not applied to children up to 14 years old. The total amount of the tourist tax will be asked in cash upon arrival at Castello di Pastine (an official receipt will be given).

We provide all the linen (for the bed and bathroom) and the furniture for living (pots, pans, forks and knives, glasses...etc.); all the other consumables are self catering. The only towels which are extras, are the ones for the swimming pool, which we rent upon request and are then given for the entire period of stay.
Every unit has a private tent (it is a large wooden pergola) around the swimming pool with private furniture (sun beds and deck chairs as well as table with chairs).
Extras: use of laundry room; use of hot tub.
