Castel Porrona Relais in Cinigiano, Italy
In an enchanting medieval village with two dozen inhabitants surrounded by Tuscan hills dotted with olive groves, cypress trees and vineyards near Montalcino, lies Castel Porrona Relais. The five star boutique property is composed by 25 renovated rooms with a selection of noble materials and, separately, a private Castle with personal butler for exclusive use. Heated swimming pool, water zone & SPA, a revisited Tuscan cuisine restaurant topped by a bespoke service portray a magical atmosphere in the almost untouched Tuscan countryside. Castel Porrona Relais is located in the young wine country of Montecucco, a short drive away from main attractions such as Siena and San Gimignano as well as from the hot springs Bagno Vignoni, Saturnia and the coast of Punta Ala, Castiglione della Pescaia and Porto Ercole. The perfect secret escape for an exclusive vacation of both country and sea side, where roots are respected through a refined perspective.

Reviews for Castel Porrona Relais
This hotel was a huge disappointment, and I hope this review can help others avoid making the mistake of staying here. As many others have stated, the air conditioning was a huge problem. The AC units in each room just did not work, and as there are only tiny windows in each room (old castle) it is impossible to get any fresh air/breeze. We also had several other issues - our initial room reeked of smoke. The walls are covered in fabric, which must absorb smells and make this issue worse. When the problem was first brought to the staffs attention the solution was to "air out" the room, which did not work. After an unpleasant night we were moved to a different room which did not smell, but when trying to take a shower we discovered there was no hot water. The room they changed us to was an upgraded room which we didnt really care about - we just wanted a room that didnt smell and had working hot water/AC! They were able to fix the hot water issue within about 5 hours, but it was still a pretty big inconvenience for a '5 star' facility. Dinner was mediocre at best (and overpriced). The only thing I can compliment is the wonderful pastry chef. The breakfast pastries were excellent.
I have been in Castel Porrona with my wife for a lovely weekend, the place is very beautiful, you can feel the history everywhere around you. Rooms are very big and well decorated with modern amenities. We liked a lot the beautiful spa, spending all day between sauna, massages and the internal heated pool. Dining in the restaurant was a great experience, you can choose inside restaurant, more elegant, or the open air patio. You can find easier BIO preparation or gourmet food at the same time. Good wine list and excellent house wine. We look forward to retourn asap

The unconventional layout of the hotel - dictated by the adaptation of the original borgo buildings - gave a lack of indoor lounge/communal areas which may not appeal to everyone. But the place is undoubtedly steeped in history and character. Our room was very comfortable but let down by a leaky shower. The attractive restaurant served very good food with excellent and friendly service throughout.
When we checked in the staff was very polite and courteous. We were assigned a room that was black, dark, stuffy with only 1 window that was 30 in by 24 in. The a/c was not working. The manager came to explain there was a problem with the air conditioning and that it was turned off since it was later in September. The room was very uncomfortable. See other write ups about the a/c. We were finally switched to another rooms with cross ventilation which was quite satisfactory. The food was good but not 5 star. The beef carpaccio was average. The pasta was fair. My pork tenderloin was very good but my wife's beef was tough. Good but no were near 5 star
