Castello di Casole is one of the most stunning properties we at Black Tomato have had the pleasure to see. It combines a classic Tuscan look with a refreshingly contemporary design that is so hard to find in this region.The effect is the best of both worlds – a modern, luxury, hideaway that still feels like it connects with the soil of the rolling hills and valleys around it.
Clearly it is the product of years of insight into what makes the contemporary traveller tick and a passion for celebrating the best of Italy. Let the pictures of the estate do the talking.
All about beginnings
Hotel Castello di Casole offers a rare opportunity to stroll through a restored Italian castle on a country estate in Tuscany. Dating back to the end of the 10th century and reconstructed during the 19th and 20th centuries by the Bargagli family of Siena the castle rose to a prominent position in the region and now holds a prominent position within Black Tomato’s carefully picked selection of Tuscan hotels.
It’s refreshingly unlike the tried and tested farmhouse feel; in our eyes Castello di Casole offers a wonderfully unique combination of the best Tuscan ambience with outstanding up-to-date comfort and attitude to service. This stunningly beautiful location boasts 360-degree views of the (the gorgeous countryside south of Siena), with its rolling pasture land, olive groves, monasteries and fortified stone villages that haven’t changed much in 500 years.
