Located in Tuscany, the Belmond Castello di Casole offers guests the rare opportunity to enjoy the comforts of a restored Italian castle in the Italian countryside. The castle dates back to the end of the 10th century when it was originally built and named ‘Querceto Villa‘. With 39 suites, ranging in styles and sizes to accommodate all visitors - from rustic feel suites in the main villa to the apartment-style olive grove suites - every corner of this castle is a treasure of its own.
Original wood-beamed ceilings and stone walls are mixed with modern fabrics and furnishings, creating a lovely blend of old and new in this castle. Belmond Castello di Casole also offers guests the opportunity to rent a countryside farmhouse and stay among the vineyards if they wish. All of the farmhouses on the estate were made from original materials, including stones, bricks, and terracotta that have been used for centuries. Like spacious kitchens and glass-tiled infinity-edged pools, modern updates add a more luxurious touch to this already charming castle.
With several dining options, guests are sure not to leave hungry. The focus is on simple, rustic food in the classic Italian tradition. Famished travelers can expect handmade pasta, fresh organic vegetables, fresh fish, and game from local sources – all paired with fine wines from the best wineries in Italy and around the world.
For cultural excursions & tours in Tuscany and throughout Italy, this castle is set in a prime location. Italian museum tours, concerts, dinners, and events are all an easy journey from Belmond Castello di Casole. You can even take part in Italian cooking classes right on the premises. So enjoy a taste of Italy from the comforts of your very own castle!
