With a 5,000-year history dating back to the Bronze Age, this hotel is one of Tuscany s most legendary resorts. Its rich past is reminiscent of Etruscan farming artifacts found throughout the property, now on display at the hotel. Over the years, the hotel s guests have included members of royal families, film stars and political figures.
The hotel has only 39 rooms. Each room is unique: rustic charm meets Italian flair - antique details such as wood-beamed ceilings and hand-finished stone walls blend seamlessly with Italian fabrics, fixtures and furnishings, while color tones add a touch of modern sophistication. The rooms offer breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills or the beautiful Chapel of San Tommaso.
During the day, hotel guests can spend time visiting local farms, exploring the wildlife, or hunting for rare truffles. In the evening, relax by the pool or in the elegant restaurant on the terrace with magnificent views.
The Belmond Castello di Casole restaurants focus on simple, rustic cuisine that combines Italian tradition with modern innovation. The menu includes homemade Italian pasta, locally sourced meats, seafood and fresh produce from the private garden. Freshly baked bread pairs perfectly with the estate s extra virgin olive oil.
Tastings of the estate s own wines are held in the ancient cellar. A picnic can also be organized upon request.in nature with an aperitif and canapés, and for a family holiday, order a traditional Tuscan “merenda” - the children will be delighted.
