What we love
After the walk up the gravel track to the castles grand entrance you will undoubtedly be greeted by the famous Tuscan charm, as the team here are eager to show off their culture, cuisine, scenery and hospitality.
Setting the scene
Hidden in Tuscan hilltop Olive groves you will find Castello di Vicarello. The converted castle is the ultimate hotel retreat offering charming views of the green countryside all the way to the blue Tuscan Sea.
Castello di Vicarello's suites have been tastefully restored to a high standard but still retain the lovely original stone and brick walls to give them an authentic feel. There is a combination of antique and modern furniture in the room giving it originality and luxury. 4 of the suites overlook the castle courtyard, whilst the other 3 are surrounded by the luscious gardens.
Rooms are located around a central courtyard which is used during the day and evening as a tranquil dining space. All of the rooms are individually designed with many unique pieces of furniture picked up from around the world by the owners.
Aurora, the owner serves up natural Tuscan cuisine as an authentic treat whether you choose the candlelit courtyard or the cosy fireplace at winter time.
Two things are a must whilst visiting the area, the vineyards and the hiking whilst the owners will be more than happy to extend with you their knowledge of the assortment of excursion options available. There are two swimming pools outside as well as a holistic spa and sauna as you wind down in these epic surrounds.
