Summary

Traditional meets luxe among emblematic Italian vineyards

About

Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | History & culture | Self-drive | Short break | Spa

The 5-star Castello Del Nero lies among acres of rolling green hills that are the archetype of Chianti countryside, where undulating olive groves, gentle verdant hills and wineries abound. You’re just moments away from the splendours of Siena with its art and Renaissance architecture, reached with a complimentary shuttle from the hotel, while closer to home, the charming commune of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa with its churches, vineyards and cathedrals is just a ten minute walk away.

Castello Del Nero retains a charming sense of history paired with the technology and comforts of a modern age. Rooms are spectacular even at the most basic level, where fresh colour palettes are inspired by different seasons, all rustic charm and terracotta tiles. Most deluxe are the suites comprised of six 18 century-frescoed rooms and a vast private living room, with an enormous hearth, elegant antiques and panoramic garden views over the estate.

Michelin-starred dinners await in La Torre, where exquisite Italian cuisine is paired with fine wines. Enjoy summer’s fresh seafood and autumn’s truffles, served overlooking the forest-fringed olive groves and vineyards of the Chianti countryside or in front of the period fireplace that dominates the room. Or, a typical Tuscan lunch and dinner awaits at La Taverna, offering Tuscan hand-made pasta, pici con pomodorini, with tomatoes and basil grown from the kitchen gardens enjoyed in the balmy air of a charming al fresco setting. The indoor and outdoor simply-named The Bar is all exposed brick and a roaring fire, perfect for an aperitif – the cucumber, gin and mint spritz is particularly noteworthy.

The hotel's amenities are extensive, with historic architecture in the family chapel from the 1700s lying alongside two tennis courts and swimming pool, but it’s the spectacular surrounds that really impress. Go horse riding through the sprawling Tuscan hills, walk along olive grove-lined forests, or learn about the fine wines of the region in the hotel’s 12th century wine cellar. Or, walk into the nearby village of Tavarnelle before enjoying a massage in the luxury ESPA, a leading Tuscan spa back at the hotel, before stargazing on the nearby Astronomical Observatory of Chianti.
