While certainly one of Italy’s highest calibre country retreats, the Castiglion del Bosco is also a working wine estate, and is the hotel of choice for serious aficionados of Tuscan scenery, cuisine and culture.
Come here for a sense of aristocratic rural seclusion, and for genuine relaxation amid breathtaking views, accompanied by superb food and wine, luxurious facilities, and supremely comfortable accommodation.
Castiglion del Bosco has 23 suites in the ten historic buildings of Il Borgo, at the centre of the estate, plus nine villas, located here and in restored farmhouses around the estate.
Interiors at the Castiglion del Bosco are decorated and furnished in a contemporary Tuscan style, and some rooms have private terraces.
Il Borgo is also home to the estate’s Osteria, Bar and Ristorante, the Culinary Academy, and an extensive kitchen garden. Here too is the heated stone infinity pool which looks out over the hilltop town of Montalcino, and the Daniela Steiner spa.
Fresh air opportunities abound at Castiglion del Bosco; whether on the tennis and bowls courts or following endless hiking, biking and horse-riding trails around the estate’s spectacular scenery.
The Castiglion del Bosco Golf Club has a dramatic eighteen-hole course, a driving range and putting green, and its clubhouse occupies a converted Tuscan farmhouse.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Tuscany into a greater Italian or European holiday.
