Castello di Vicarello Hotel in Tuscany, Italy

March 26, 2012 by

A magical, rustic, romantic, luxurious, warmly welcoming, irresistible and utterly unforgettable all in one hotel the Castello di Vicarello. Selected among the 101 Best Hotels in the World is Castello di Vicarello, an enchanted oasis where history lives and breathes in each of stones. It is an experience of a lifetime.

The guest rooms have been carefully and meticulously restored and stylishly outfitted. The rooms feature original stone and brick walls and a beautiful mix of antique and contemporary furniture, with the special oriental touch testifying to many years spent in Indonesia. Four of the castle’s suites look out over the courtyard, paved with ancient flagstones, while three more inhabit outbuildings in the middle of a lush garden of white roses, lavender, and ancient olive trees. Rooms offered at Castello di Vicarello include: Chiesina, Sassi, Vicario, Sprone, Giardino, Grotta, and Chinese.

The natural spa at this heavenly hotel is a wooden raft and escape which seems to float above the terraced olive groves outside. The spa specializes in Ayurvedic massage, thanks to an Indian masseuse with a truly magical touch. Reflexology, Shiatsu, and other treatments are also available at the spa.

Castello di Vicarella is a year-round encounter. Sea breezes ensure that the temperatures in the summer do no become unbearable, and there are two scenically-sited outdoor freshwater pools for guests to cool off in. The wildflowers run rampant in the Spring, late summer brings in the grape harvest, and the autumn months bring the first pressing of the Castello’s organic olive oil.

At this place, wine and food are all in keeping with the ambiance and their highest standards of flavor and magnificence. They grow much of the food on the grounds and everything is refined according to traditional methods as well as stern organic guidelines. Tuscan tradition reigns supreme in the kitchen, and only the best and freshest cheeses, fruits, meats, breads, oils, and other ingredients are used.

Home to many awards, including 2011 Best Spas in the world – Traveller UK, this gorgeous escape is the perfect place to take a break from the world.

    Simply enchanting. Like the mixture of new and old, in particular what I presume to be the SPA area with the wooden louvred shade. Beautiful.
