Belmond Castello di Casole

Last updated: 23 December, 2023

Originally a traditional country estate, complete with 10th-century castle and its medieval stone hamlet, Castello di Casole has been transformed into a luxury 5-star retreat.

Set in over 4,000 acres of wooded hillsides and farmland that includes a game reserve, 25 acres of organic of vineyards and 30 of olive groves, you could lose yourself for the day without ever leaving the property.

The castle, with its palatial spaces and 39 suites, has been meticulously restored leaving original features intact, while making concessions to 21st-century luxuries: a spa, superb infinity pool, gym and several restaurants.

This is an ideal choice for those looking for serious luxury and an away-from it all feel, although there’s easy access to Volterra, Chianti and its vineyards, the walled hilltop village of Monteriggioni and Siena itself.

Surrounding area

Set in 4,200 acres of unspoilt countryside, there is no danger of traffic noise. The only sounds will be of nature; birds, bees and the odd tractor. The views are of unspoilt, timeless Tuscan countryside.
