Castello di Casole – Tuscany

On this weeks wishlist is Castello di Casole in Tuscany.  This beautiful spa hotel is situated in lush Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards in a restored castle which dates back to 998 with additional farmhouse villas on the property for added seclusion.

The hotel really is a food destination in itself, with two restaurants, room service, a private chef avaliable to cook for you at your private villa or you can request a picnic hamper to enjoy in the grounds.  Naturally, there is also a great selection of wines to enjoy including the red wine produced on the estate.

Should you wish to venture further afield, Siena has much to offer.  With Montepulciano, Florence and Pisa an hour to an hour and a half drive away.  Alternatively the small town of Radicondoli is 25 minutes away and boasts local restaurants such as Agriteca, La Pergola and Bar le Mura – you really are spoilt for choice.
