About

Food & wine | Self-drive | Summer

Location

Found in the rolling hills that separate Florence, Siena and San Gimignano is one of the largest private landholdings in all of Italy. Even the coast is just a scenic hour’s drive away. Two grand, cypress-lined lanes ascend through vineyards, orchards and olive groves to reach this historic castle. Over its rich thousand-year history, it’s played the role of everything from country manor and aristocratic home to a place of political refuge for exiles from nearby Siena. Head out and explore the region’s famous vineyards, architectural masterpieces and bike routes while the estate itself even hosts concerts and art exhibitions. 

Accommodation

At the centre of this 4,200-acre estate is a 10th century castle, furnished in grand European tradition. It’s all been carefully restored using traditional construction techniques and materials so as to preserve its original beauty. Throughout, suites combine old world Tuscan charm with modern luxuries; choose between main villa suites and apartment-style living among the olive groves. Throughout, wood-beamed ceilings, stone walls and hand-plastered finishes promote the hotel’s delightfully traditional aesthetic. For longer stays, look to the historic Farmhouse Villas that dot the 4,200-acre estate. Their terracotta traditionalism is perfectly complemented by spacious kitchens, outdoor dining areas and glass-tiled infinity pools. 

Dining

Whatever your dining preferences, you’ll be well looked after at Belmond Castello di Casole. Take your cappuccino as the sun sets, enjoy picnic lunches among the vineyards or dine al fresco well into the balmy evenings. For true Tuscan delights, head to Pazzia where homemade pasta is prepared daily and the vegetables are hand-picked from the chef’s gardens. Alternatively, mix in some more modern influences with Ristorante Tosca where contemporary flourishes transform traditional dishes, served under Murano glass chandeliers and paired with sommelier-selected wines. You can even take advantage of the services of your very own private chef, who’ll prepare a tailor-made feast in your villa. 

Facilities

Tuscany has long been known for its soothing qualities and Belmond Castello di Casole is no different. The pools, steam rooms and treatments of the Essere Spa are superb while the pool terrace offers stunning panoramas over the surrounding countryside. For some evening relaxation, there are the frescoes and marble accents of Bar Viconti where cocktails, fine wines and hors d’oeuvres are served to yet more rural views. To find out more about the region’s heritage, book onto a cooking tour, artist’s workshop or a tasting tour of the estate’s 100 acres of vineyards. Fitness enthusiasts aren’t looked over either, with an excellent gym complete with a full range of equipment.
