Castello di Casole near Siena
Deep in the Tuscan countryside, the lush landscape was sculpted by Etruscans long before the Romans made their mark. At its bucolic heart lies Castello di Casole, a Belmond Hotel. Approached along a road lined with statuesque cypress trees, this expansive private estate comprises a restored 10th-century castle, medieval village and 4,200 verdant acres.
Guests are invited to slow down and reconnect with nature, exploring the sprawling vineyards, olive groves, woodlands and meadows where deer, hare and wild boar roam.
Enchanting rooms boast exposed brickwork and open fireplaces. Light-filled suites blend rustic charm with contemporary flair, rich in wooden beams and Italian fabrics. Some feature gorgeous gardens or terraces.
A serene infinity pool affords spellbinding vistas of the undulating hills. The magnificent vaulted spa, set in the former wine cellar, offers luscious grape-inspired treatments. Yoga and pilates can be enjoyed on the lawn.
Memorable Italian dining is offered at Tosca on a panoramic terrace with views of the hills. Dishes feature local organic produce, including the Castello’s own-label red wines, olive oil and honey. The dining spaces, inside and out, make for vibrant evenings. The Enchanted Table, floating in a secluded glade, makes for magical aperitifs.
Activities within the estate include guided nature walks, truffle hunts and stargazing. Beyond lie Tuscany’s most celebrated vineyards, charming hilltop towns and the wonders of San Gimignano and Siena. A variety of bikes is available to tour the area using pedal power.
