Former castle turned posh Tuscan country pad, with an infinity pool, cocktail bar and alfresco dining
Surrounded by a vast 4,200-acre country estate that was once home to a 10th-century castle, a working farm with stables and more than 200 villagers, Castello di Casole is a magnificent country pad that combines lashings of Old World charm with some seriously luxe amenities. The main chunk of the hotel is housed in a series of stone farmhouses that spill out from a central courtyard (the former stable block). On-site you'll find an infinity pool with views of cypress-studded hills, giant bathrooms with rolltop tubs; a posh cocktail bar and an alfresco restaurant serving Tuscan classics.
Bed and Bath
All 41 spacious suites have been designed with a sympathetic nod to their Tuscan farmhouse heritage and feature beam ceilings, thick stone floors, terra-cotta-hued walls, and arched windows that frame views of the surrounding hills or the courtyard. The marble-clad bathrooms have free-standing rolltop tubs, giant showers, twin sinks and generous quantities of signature products.
On the grounds, the infinity pool takes center stage and overlooks the estate’s olive grove and the medieval villages of Mensano and Radicondoli. Next to the pool there’s a purpose-built amphitheater where you can catch an alfresco movie. There a two restaurants on-site: Pazzia Pizzeria, where wood-fired pizzas loaded with mozzarella dominate the menu, and Ristorante Tosca, an intimate eatery with arched stone ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers, and a candlelit terrace where posh seafood dishes are served against an enchanting backdrop. For post-dinner drinks, knock back a grappa at Bar Visconti or sip a glass of red straight from the estate’s very own vineyard.
