Castello di Casole

Castello Di Casole is part of one of the largest private estates in Italy, with 4200 acres of pristine Tuscan countryside surrounding a beautifully restored 19th century castle.

Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

The authentic manor holds 41 private one, two and three bedroom suites, decorated in traditional Tuscan style with modern Italian designer furniture and fabrics. Complimentary mini-bars, Carrara marble bathrooms and panoramic views across rolling hills and the castle gardens enhance the grandiose atmosphere. The rich history is celebrated with Etruscan artefacts blended into contemporary décor, exposed reclaimed wooden beams and old terracotta tiles.

The Castello's two restaurants serve classically Italian, rustic flavours and fresh organic vegetables, and favour the private signature wines and olive oil produced on the estate. The Pazzia has a relaxed feel and offers homemade pastas, gelato and pizzas from the original brick oven. The more formal Ristorante Tosca serves updated Tuscan classics within its restored stone walls and on the al fresco dining terrace. Private chefs are also available to whip together a meal for guests in the privacy of their own suite.

The large, heated infinity pool looks out over the fields and vineyards of the estate, with sauna and steam room nearby. Further to that a snack bar is also available. The Essere spa, in the castle's old wine cellar, offers a full treatment menu using local ingredients within the original stone walls and vaulted ceilings.

Within one hour's drive of the Castello are the classical cities of Siena and Florence, and the pretty town of Monteriggioni is just a short bicycle ride away. Even closer, scenic footpaths grant access to the estate's thriving game reserve. While horseback riding, wine tastings, cookery and language classes and cultural excursions can all be arranged by the hospitality team.
