Discover Castello di Casole

Enriched by 5,000 years of history

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.

Vineyards & 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. What's more, we even make our own delicious honey on-site.

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.

The Restoration

Preserving the history of Castello di Casole has been a dream project for our architects and artisans. They have been careful to honour the natural wonders of the hotel and its rich Tuscan heritage.

The restoration used traditional methods and reclaimed materials, including wood beams, ceramic tile and terracotta found throughout the estate. Trace the centuries across the stones of our walled courtyard and hand-set loggia.
