Timeless romance in rural Tuscany

The newest addition to the Belmond family, Belmond Castello di Casole is a historic castle hotel in the heart of rural Tuscany. It adds another jewel to our stunning Italian treasure trove, which includes the Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice and Belmond Hotel Splendido in Portofino. Step inside and discover indulgent Italian splendour blended with unique Tuscan charm.

Opening on 1 April 2018, it’s easily reached from both Florence and Siena. Offering just 39 rooms, this intimate retreat sits within 3,700 acres of farmland, vineyards and olive groves—one of the largest private estates in all of Italy.

The Castello dates back to the 10th century. It was originally owned by the aristocratic Bargagli family and later by acclaimed cinematographer Luchino Visconti. Visconti’s parties at the castle were legendary, and always attended by Hollywood glitterati.

The hotel’s spacious all-suite accommodations are designed to honour the rich and rustic traditions of Tuscany. Spaces are awash in rich terracotta and golden hues, offset with gorgeous antique furniture and original stone floors. Many suites feature private gardens that blossom with aromatic white roses in summer.

The heated outdoor infinity pool offers sweeping views across the rolling hills and valleys of Tuscany. You’ll be free to make the most of the destination, setting off to try truffle hunting, hiking, cycling and cooking classes. Or unwind in the indulgent spa. Located in the vaulted wine cellar, the restored stone walls and Etruscan artifacts will whisk you back in time.
