About the location

Situated just 15 miles from Siena, Castelnuovo Berardenga is often overlooked in favour of its mother city, but reveals a rich tapestry of culture and history to those who take a proper look. Considered part of the Chianti wine region, this picturesque town is situated amid the beautiful rolling hills that have made Tuscany globally famous, and today offers guests a real taste of authentic Italy. The town is best noted for the surrounding wineries and vineyards, but the historic centre also offers a few attractions, including a stunning Gothic monastery that still towers over the surrounding countryside. The town is especially good for visitors wanting to enjoy some of the region’s best wines, and there are numerous local wineries that offer tours and tastings.

One of the biggest benefits of Castelnuovo Berardenga lies in its proximity to Siena, so save some time to explore one of Tuscany’s finest cities. There are lots of sights to see, from the striking cathedral to the bustling central piazza, one of Europe’s largest ancient squares. 

Transfer time
Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Castelnuovo Berardenga is 14 miles from Siena, 50 miles from Florence and 98 miles from Pisa. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.
