Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco
Enveloped by rolling hills and ancient Brunello vineyards at the heart of Val d’Orcia, Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco (formerly Castiglion del Bosco is possibly the largest bordered estate in Italy. The 800 year-old complex occupies a commanding position atop Il Borgo with breathtaking views across 4,500 acres of nature reserve.
Il Borgo’s authenticity is enriched by a living museum of 18th – 19th Century antiquities, which extend to the 255 rooms, including 23 impressive suites and 9 self-contained villas, scattered across the resort. The stimulating décor emulates Tuscany’s rich tapestry of seasonal colours, blended harmoniously with statement antiques and natural fabrics. Soak up the rays beside your own natural stone pool, or enjoy a barbecue on the private terrace shaded from the sun by a large pergola.
Set amid sweeping Sienese landscapes, 50 minutes drive from Siena, Il Borgo is exceptionally isolated from most big towns. The estate boasts a smorgasboard of activities to engage guests, including cookery classes within La Canonica; wine-tasting at the traditional enoteca bar or a leisurely round of golf at the prestigious club. Wind down after a long day at the infinity pool, followed by a visit to Daniela Steiner’s Care Suite Spa.
As evening draws in, guests are invited to savour an informal evening of snacks and socialising at Osteria, or enjoy a more cultured dining experience at Ristorante Campo Del Drago where Brunello and fine cuisine set the precedent for a truly romantic evening.
