A 10th-century estate, surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills, is the perfect pairing to experience Tuscany the right way. The Belmond Castello di Casole is one of the prettiest accommodations we have ever seen, the classic Italian atmosphere is undeniable; it’s exactly what you’d expect it to be. Where should we start… maybe the outside, a castle in every sense of the word, with classic finishes and surrounded by huge gardens and vineyards that only invite exploration. Luxury at first sight, with two avenues of cypresses leading to the main entrance that, within a few steps reveal the renovated farmhouses to offer maximum comfort and an exclusive experience without losing sight of the classic Italian style.
The simple fact of being here awakens the desire to take a walk to the terraces, the pool and of course the Tosca restaurant to sip a first class house wine and enjoy rustic Italian cuisine but with a slight modern touch. With stone walls, the smell of firewood and homemade pasta we feel totally immersed in Tuscany, not to mention that all the food is organic and home-grown. But if you don’t want to miss out on an astonished view, while enjoying one of the house wines; You can’t miss Cip’s from Casa Cipriani…well, we all know the majesty we can expect from Cipriani and its classic Italian flavor. A culinary experience worthy of this fairy tale.
Talking about the interior, private spaces that perfectly combine materials and sensations that go back to the time of the complex, stone floors, wooden beams and metal ornaments keep us immersed in this experience; In addition to this, the modern details, first class facilities and typical colors of the region make it clear that we are in one of the most luxurious and exclusive hotels in Tuscany.
