Castello di Casole is one of those magical places where time stands still. Spread across 4,200 acres, this 10th-century estate is the perfect place to experience the wonders of rural Italy. While away the hours visiting local farms, spotting wildlife or hunting for rare truffles. Then retreat to a world of comfort, elegance and world-class dining. A warm welcome is guaranteed.

One of the most storied Tuscany resorts, Castello di Casole is alive with history. The site is deeply rooted in its agricultural past stretching back to the Bronze Age; artefacts from Etruscan farmers have been found across the grounds and are now on display at the hotel. The castle itself dates back to the 10th century. Throughout the years it has hosted royalty, film stars and political luminaries. Today the buildings have been lovingly restored, cherishing the storied past while offering every modern indulgence.

Model Game Reserve

Castello di Casole is recognised by Provincia di Siena as a Model Game Reserve. This is a testament to the remarkable work of farmers who tend the land, and gamekeepers who lead seasonal hunting expeditions.

The Reserve is perfect for exploration. Lose yourself among the many scenic footpaths and spot the abundance of hare, pheasant and deer.

Vineyard & Groves

Meander through our vineyards and olive groves. Our estate boasts more than 25 acres of organic vineyards in 13 distinct plots, including Cabernet, Sangiovese, Merlot and Petit Verdot varietals. The grapes are used to produce our ‘Sì di Sì’ private-label signature wines.

Naturally, Tuscany is home to the world’s finest olive groves, and our 30 acres may be the finest of all. Harvested each fall, the olives produce a private-label extra virgin olive oil unlike any other. Making just 2,500 bottles annually, it’s used exclusively at the Castello di Casole estate with a dedicated allotment for owners and guests

Pool Terrace

Whether you want to swim, soak or splash, the pool terrace is the perfect place to relax while taking in the beautiful sights of Tuscany. The heated pool is ideal for morning laps or an afternoon dip, while nearby saunas and steam rooms are ideal spots to unwind after.

Even for those keeping dry, the terrace is the perfect place to while away the hours. Gather with friends and family, or curl up with a book under the Tuscan sun.
