Tuscany, one of the most enchanting parts of Italy, is known for its beauty, history, indulgence and fairy tale resorts like Castello di Casole (Castle of Casole in English). Believe or not, the castle was built in 998 A.D., during the Etruscan epoch, and, today, it houses a five-star luxury boutique hotel that will leave you amazed. Castello di Casole is only two and a half hour drive from Rome’s airport and only 40 minutes away from Florence.
Castello di Casole spans 4,200 acres of land, and, true to Tuscan style, it is surrounded by vineyards, cypress hills, and olive groves. The hotel has 41 intimate, sophisticated suites and 28 luxury farmhouses (which are available for rental), a bar, spacious dining venues, a fantastic spa, a mosaic-tiled infinity pool and a game reserve.
The suites are finely decorated with exposed stonework, spacious layout, mosaic bathroom flooring, elegant upholstery and beautiful garden terraces. A 24-hour-in-room dining service is available, as are daily cleaning and turndown services. You can ask for a dedicated bilingual concierge and a dedicated personal shopper. A bottle of the estate’s finest wine will await you in your room, in addition to a fully stocked mini-bar. Apart from that, you will have full access to Essere Spa and Fitness Club and valet parking.
Amenities at Castello di Casole leave little to be desired – from sommelier wine tasting sessions, in-suite massages and picnic basket lunches to vineyard tours, cooking, art, pottery and language classes, bird watching, yoga classes and horseback riding. watch video below
