Yes, the drive up to the castle is narrow, and in spots unpaved, but it's a hilltop castle. We were rewarded for the drive with a one hour plus private tour of an amazing structure. This has been a 'labor of love' for one woman for the passed 19 years (at age 75 she says this may be her last). The explanation of the 700-year-old skeleton uncovered by workers was amazing. A messenger (based on leg structure), from the north (based on size), murdered (based on hasty burial) with an arrow to the mouth (based on the arrow still being in place), was incredible.
The view from the ramparts of the castle are the best we've seen in this region. It is secluded, it is hard to get to, it does cost 5 Euro, but it is well worth it if you have any interest in history at all. It feels like you can hear the 'ancient ones' whisper as you turn each corner. In my opinion this is an 'undiscovered' attraction that's been painstakingly restored from near ruble, in an 'under visited' area of Tuscany.

An historical castle restored with incredible care and love. From the highest point you can enjoy one mindblowing view of the region.

Once arrived in the small town, the signage to the castle is very poor and the road was overgrown with grass, at first we didn't think we were on the right track but we stopped and asked for directions.

The castle is amazing and the work that the host has done is very good and a credit to her. She does speak enough English to get by. The tour is very informing and interesting. However there is very little food and the breakfast is non existent, if she did a simple cooked breakfast it would have been great. If going take some snacks...
