Nestled within a 4,200-acre estate and surrounded by 100 acres of vineyards, the Hotel Castello di Casole has taken five years to restore. The property has been the home of Italian nobility dating back to the 10th century and today blends grand Italian style with custom-made Tuscan furnishings to complement the region's landscape and history.
