The Gem of Tuscany: Tuscany

Experience the grandeur of the past with a stay at this magnificent home situated in the heart of Tuscany. With its history stretching back all the way to the eleventh century, this castello has seen it all – from medieval feuds to Renaissance splendour, and beyond.

Arrive to be wowed by the impressive exterior set against the lush greenery of its gardens and the stunning views of the Tuscan countryside surrounding it. You’ll no doubt fall under the spell of this place before even crossing the front door – outside you’ll find a glistening pool, inviting you to take a dip in on those hot Italian afternoons. You can lounge about on the comfy sun loungers, working on your tan and catching up on your holiday reads. As the sun begins to set over the green hills, gather everyone outside for an evening of cocktails and conversation.

Inside you'll be greeted by a beautifully preserved interior, which retains its historic glory while at the same time boasting all the modern comforts to make your stay here a comfortable and relaxing one. Wonder around the opulent rooms and find a place to kick off your shoes and unwind – why not choose the main salon with a cosy fireplace? The country-style kitchen invites you to create delicious meals which can be enjoyed in the company of your family and friends at the elegant dining table.

For a night of sweet dreams head upstairs where you’ll have a choice of eleven bedrooms – two of which are situated in a mezzanine – and all of which offer plush comfort and stylish elegance. Wake up well-rested and enjoy the fresh breakfast prepared for you. You can also stay on top of your fitness goals with a workout at the private gym.

Whether you’re here to enjoy a family get-together, a special event, or simply a relaxing holiday with your loved ones – you could hardly wish for a more special setting. Should you wish to explore beyond the walls of your castello, the breathtaking city of Florence is a mere half an hour by car, and the surrounding countryside offers countless opportunities for hiking and cycling while you discover the charming villages, lost in time.
