Stay at Castello di Vicarello
Begin your Italian escapade in a 12th-century castle hotel boasting one of the most beautiful backdrops in all the region. Here, history and nature unite effortlessly, resulting in a rural ambiance that automatically soothes and invites you to recline and relax.Owned by the same family since the 1970s, you can sense the devotion and care that went into this gorgeous abode. Some suites are housed in standalone buildings, others give way to valley vistas or bathtubs overlooking the tranquility of the grounds. Picture horse rides through these divine landscapes, or private tastings in the fortress’ vineyards. Savour 360 degree candle lit dinners, as you revel in the serenity of these tucked away scenes.
The hotel enjoys a remote hilltop position alongside epic valley views, and offers a chance to unplug amid stunning Tuscan country. The closest airport is in Florence, which is a 2-hour drive away.
This is a boutique resort that accommodates just 20 guests. Traditional Florentine touches combine with international decor, such as Indonesian daybeds and antique Persian rugs, creating an attractive aesthetic that’s quirky and utterly unique.
Who is it for
An adult-orientated aura is engrained throughout, making this an ideal place for larger groups or families with older kids. Couples seeking a romantic stay or even an intimate destination wedding will find all they need for a magical and memorable escape.
