Why Stay At Castello di Casole
Reside like aristocracy on this sprawling estate in the heart of Tuscan wine country.
Encircled by the rolling hills of Tuscany, Castello di Casole encompasses a staggering 4,200 acres complete with a game reserve, croquet lawn, walking and bike trails. Meticulously groomed gardens surround the outdoor pool and large furnished sun terrace. Accommodations effortlessly blend all things classic Tuscan with sophisticated amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. Designed in rich ochre and terracotta hues with wood beamed ceilings and exposed stonewalls, the suites are appointed with vibrant Italian fabrics and local antiques. The spacious bathrooms feature freestanding bathtubs, and precious Carrara marble or mosaic floors. Booking a treatment at the spa, which occupies the former wine cellar, is nearly mandatory; try a soothing honey-infused massage with locally harvested honey and olive oils. Built up an appetite? The two on-site restaurants serve refined rustic Italian cuisine concentrating on ambitious seafood dishes like tomato-stuffed calamari and lemon monkfish with Tuscan ham. Complete your meal with post-dinner drinks and pick from the comprehensive line-up of spirits at Bar Visconti.
The region is interspersed with numerous trails and prime bike tour territory. The hotel offers mountain bike rentals right on-site.

Why We Love Tuscany
Famous for its gently rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves, the medieval town dotted with centuries-old historic monuments is only one hour away from the hub of Florence.
Where to Drink: Perched atop ancient Etruscan ruins, attend one of the frequent wine tasting events at Enoteca Il Salotto. Drop in any time to sip smooth Tuscan grappa and a large array of regional vintages. Drinks for two €10.
Via Gracco del Secco, 31, Colle Val D'Elsa.
Outdoor Excursion: Ask the hotel's concierge about joining an exclusive truffle treasure hunt at Crete Senesi, Siena's clay hills. An expert guide teaches you about the ins and outs of finding the elusive tubers. Enjoy them at the end of the day in a local osteria or back at the hotel.
Day Trip: Just a quick 25-mile drive away lies the town of Siena, arguably one of Tuscany's loveliest cities. Wander around the famous central piazza known as Il Campo, climb Torre del Mangia for breathtaking vistas and gaze at magnificent paintings by native Sienese artists at the Civic Museum.
