A traditional tuscan private estate
In the rolling hills at the heart of the Tuscan countryside, not far from Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, hides one of the largest private estates in Italy, Castello di Casole, an idyllic retreat overflowing with traditional luxury and history. With 39 all-suite bedrooms and 28 luxury villas and farmhouses the hotel offers the most spacious accommodation in the region.
From studio suites in the main villa area to apartment-style olive grove suites a short walk away, these enticing spaces have been painstakingly restored using original materials found on the estate. Authentic details - wood-beamed ceilings, stone walls and hand-plastered finishes - are gently coaxed into the modern era with luxurious fabrics, fixtures and furnishings, an alluring blend of old and new. In addition to the luxury suites, guests of Hotel Castello di Casole are welcome to choose from other five-star accommodations on the estate. The Bargagli Penthouse is the highlight of the main hotel, a two-story, 3-bedroom masterpiece where every detail is a work of art. Families may be interested in renting one of the Tuscan Hotel Villas just steps away or for a bit more privacy, the Farmhouses, set on hillsides throughout the 4,200-acre property.
There is no shortage of activities to experience in the Tuscan countryside. Many come in search of fine art, others to tour the extraordinary countryside. Foodies can enjoy the simple, yet wonderful, cuisine whilst walking enthusiasts enjoy the stunning trails, children the pizza and chocolate factories and honeymooners the romantic sunsets.
