Castello di Casole | Province of Siena | Tuscany | Italy
Province of Siena
Belmond Castello di Casole stretches into the Tuscan sky as organically as the ancient vineyards and regal cypress trees at its base. Sun-starched stonework and rusty tones blend seamlessly with our enchanting rural surroundings.
Head high into the hills around Casole on an unassuming farm road. Between leafy banks and tall trees, you will catch your first glimpse of our medieval castle, presiding over the untouched landscape. As you rise towards our open doors, you’ll discover the irresistible spirit of rural Tuscany in each breath of fragrant, sunbaked air.
Step over the threshold into a thousand years of history, where our doorman greets you with a warm welcome. Inside the cool air offers a refreshing retreat from the Tuscan sun, while exposed beams and earthen tones harbor a glorious past that echoes the surrounding landscape. Radiating from the heart of the complex, cozy stone farmhouses have been masterfully transformed into luxury cottages and suites. They still maintain their original chimneys, a throwback to the days of Tuscan family gatherings, and home-cooking.
Once settled in and suitably revived, head to the heated infinity pool for a spot of relaxation. Sunbathe in the balmy warmth or swim to the edge, gazing across the painterly rolling hills. For deeper indulgence, descend to the former wine cellar to unwind at our Essere Spa. You’ll discover a peaceful Eden for sanctuary seekers, with a decadent menu of rejuvenating rituals featuring heavenly natural ingredients like rosemary, grape, olive oil, and honey.
You may have heard whispers of Visconti’s legendary Hollywood parties hosted at the castle, during the times of La Dolce Vita. Our vibrant Bar Visconti rather gives the secret away. Of course, you’ll want to sample Tuscany’s world-famous cuisine, and we have the perfect spot for you. Our restaurant, Tosca, promises inspired dining with locally sourced produce served under the shimmer of Murano glass chandeliers. Or take your seat on the terrace at Cip’s Club by Belmond Hotel Cipriani and soak up breathtaking views. Enjoy a taste of Venetian cuisine, thoughtfully combined with traditional Tuscan specialties.
Nestled deep within Tuscany’s tranquil heartlands, those seeking quiet bliss will not be disappointed, but Belmond Castello di Casole is also alive with activity. Anticipate an array of pursuits from mountain biking and truffle hunting to exclusive tours of the Brunello di Montalcino vineyards—adventurous spirits will feel right at home.
The humble farming origins of Belmond Castello di Casole resonate firmly in our foundations, and we remain rooted to the landscape and traditions of Tuscany. However, flashes of fairytale fantasy and luxury glamour can be found at every step. Stay here, and anticipate a feast for the soul.
