    Our opinion

    The Belmond Castello di Casole is a beautiful, luxury hotel situated in the picturesque Tuscan countryside and offers excellent standards of accommodation and a wide array of activities.

    Hotel description

    The Belmond Castello di Casole is a luxury rural spa retreat nestled in the Tuscan countryside. A renovated 10th Century Tuscan castle it is set in its extensive 4,200-acre estate. Approached down a lane lined with cypress trees and surrounded by vineyards and olive trees it affords guests the ultimate feeling of secluded luxury. The hotel has been restored, combining authentic features and modern flourishes, to provide high standards of comfort whilst maintaining the beautiful authentic features of this historic building. The 39 rooms are all decorated in an elegant and stylish fashion, but the warm tones maintain a sense of Tuscan character. Guests may choose to enjoy the tranquillity of the hotel by relaxing by the pool or enjoying one of the many treatments at the Essere Spa. Many of the rejuvenating treatments use ingredients inspired by the natural landscape and local produce, such as olive oil and rosemary. The hotel offers numerous activities including organised excursions, cookery and painting classes. There is also the opportunity for guests to participate in truffle hunts through the expansive estate. Set in acres of vineyards and olive trees the hotel is very much in touch with its Tuscan heritage and the natural environment. This is evident in Tosca, the restaurant, which serves a mouth-watering array of traditional Italian dishes using fresh local ingredients. These can be combined with some of the best Tuscan wines from the hotel’s very own wine cellar. This gourmet Tuscan dining experience can be enjoyed looking out over the vineyards and hills or in the cosy surroundings inside the hotel. The Belmond Castello di Casole offers a beautiful rural retreat, combining authentic Tuscan character and modern influences, all set in a stunning country estate location. It is ideal for those looking for a traditional Tuscan escape and to explore the surrounding area.
