Travelers' Choice

Immersed within rolling hills of breathtaking Tuscan nature, Castello di Casole, A Belmond Hotel, is an authentic farm estate that invites guests to live from the land.

Approached along a winding road lined with statuesque cypress trees, the restored medieval castle offers a sanctuary in which to disconnect from modern-day living. Vineyard walks, cycling trails, stargazing and sustainable cooking classes are among the activities. The magnificent vaulted spa, set in the former wine cellar, offers grape-inspired treatments. A serene infinity pool affords spellbinding vistas of the undulating hills. Enchanting rooms and suites boast exposed brickwork and open fireplaces. Organic produce, oil and wine from the estate form the basis of Casole’s menus. Late-night cocktails are enjoyed at glamorous Bar Visconti.

It was a simple question...how is your stay...that welled my eyes with tears...absolute perfection was my answer. The staff at Castillo di Casole customized and personalized this Italian Tuscany vacation to perfection. Stunning views, clean, large well appointed rooms, staff that knows your name and strives for excellence in service, attention to every detail before, during and after our stay. I HIGHLY recommend Belmond's Castillo di Casole property for an experience that will exceed every expectation and delight you beyond what words I can say. Would give them 10 stars if I could!

We spent two nights here during a 7 day stay in Tuscany. It is not cheap but worth every penny. The service and facility are unapparelled. Because it has only 39 rooms, every staff member knows you by name after one day. We will definitely return for a longer stay.

This hotel was probably the nicest & most picturesque place I've stayed, and I travel a lot. The views of the Tuscan hills are seared into my memory forever. And the infinity pool was fabulous! I can't say enough about the staff as well. The service was as close to perfection as you can get. I can't wait to stay here again someday.

We stayed at Castello di Casole for the first leg of our honeymoon and from start to finish it was incredible. Without question, the best hotel my wife and I have ever stayed in. The staff were all fantastic, the setting is amazing and the food was incredible. In addition, Domenico makes the best pizza I have ever tasted. Thank you all so much. We will be back!

We stayed at Castello di Casole for a long weekend as the middle leg of a three stop/two week trip to Italy. We decided to stick with Belmond all the way, starting at Splendido in Portofino, driving into Tuscany for Castello di Casole, and finishing at Caruso in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. While we enjoyed our time in Portofino and Ravello I must confess that Tuscany and Castello di Casole were the best parts of our trip. We also considered the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco but decided against it because it was much more remote, was more expensive, and Castello di Casole just looked like it had a lot more authentic old-world character (just judging by photos). We initially booked the Tuscany leg as a short and almost perfunctory stop on our trip. That was our mistake, because it ended up being one of our favorite places we’ve stayed anywhere in the world. We found the hotel and grounds to be beautiful, pastoral, and authentic while still feeling very comfortable and luxurious. We originally booked an Oliveto suite but changed prior to arrival to a suite in the main building (v16, which was a top floor room conveniently located directly above the lobby with plenty of space and great views). The Oliveto suites are a bit of a hike from the main building and with the mid-August heat we were glad we made the change, plus we liked the more classic old-school architecture of the main building over the modern design of the Oliveto suites. The staff were wonderful - it seemed like everyone knew our names within an hour of arriving on the property. We found the service to be extremely warm and personalized. Everyone was really stellar and I wish I would have taken down more names to list here but we were taken great care of by Federico, Michaele (doing my best on the spelling), and Ignazio. And in particular I would like to recognize Romina who was amazingly helpful (and patient) going back and forth with us over e-mail for weeks in advance of our arrival arranging restaurant bookings, private wine tours and tastings, and transportation and went out of her way to come find us and introduce herself when we arrived + continue to be so kind and helpful throughout our stay. The spa was one of our favorites anywhere - we each had an extended multi-hour massage and facial and found the treatments to be very nice but also in general thought that the staff at the spa (therapists, front desk, spa manager) were really excellent all-around. The facilities themselves were great and a really unique melding of the ancient monastic style of the area with new, modern, state of the art finishes. The spa manager offered my wife a voucher to come back for a free 20 minute treatment and we unfortunately didn’t have time to use it but it was very thoughtful and much appreciated. We loved the food at the hotel restaurants - the Tuscan cuisine was our favorite of any of our stops in Italy. The lasagna emiliana is not to be missed! We liked that Tosca seemed to move its seating on different days - sometimes on the terrace overlooking the hills, sometimes in the central courtyard - making it feel like a different restaurant on successive nights. The same goes for the breakfast which was in the courtyard one day and indoors the next; as a result despite being a small and very intimate hotel one gets the feeling of many options even if just staying on the property. We actually thought the pool restaurant had some of the best pasta dishes we found anywhere in Italy. The pool was very nice (a bit chilly but refreshing) with awesome vistas of the surrounding landscape and hilltop towns. One small issue was that the pool area gets direct and sustained sunlight basically all day, and we were told that every one of the movable umbrellas was broken, which meant there was not a lot of shade to come by as soon as the sun starts to move. Hopefully the hotel can get these fixed or replaced. Overall we found Castello di Casole to be a perfect blend of old world charm and character, new-school luxury, and Italian style. The staff were warm and welcoming across the board and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer - but we’ve learned our lesson for next time, and we will definitely be back.

Checked in here yesterday - with this being the 6th Belmond I have stayed in. Initial impressions are not good - cheap up sell attempt of a buffet on check in - last thing I want at a hotel is a buffet priced at 120 Euro with less choice than a Holiday Inn in Asia. Room is cavernous but no terrace. Service apart from the poor guy who doubled up as a parking attendant and room attendant to fix a broken bed is not particularly personable. Breakfast has a menu peppered with supplements - at prices starting at Euro 1200 a night this is not acceptable and a self toaster machine expecting you to wait there and do your own toast - think Holiday Inn Express. Now loud nasty music has been turned on in what was a quiet peaceful courtyard. This place reminds me of a US corporate event Centre not a Belmond Hotel and bears little resemblance to the classic style of other Belmond Hotels I have stayed in. Avoid.

We just left after an extraordinary week at Castello di Casole. Everything was magical - from the gorgeous grounds, to the breathtaking dinner service on the terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills at sunset, to the impeccable rooms, infinity pool and overall ambiance of the resort. The service and meals were first class. Castello di Casole is the best resort in Tuscany!

We travelled from the crushed busy roads of the Amalfi coast up to this hotel and "oh my" .... Everything about the hotel is wonderful - from the drive up to the main door and the welcome you get to the rooms, pool and that view.... We were meant to stay here for 2 nights and then head on up to Portofino to the Splendido. I can't believe we did this (we've been to the Splendido) but we actually decided to stay on here and cancel the hotel in Portofino. The whole place was so tranquil that we just couldn't leave! We were in an Oliveto Suite (the furthest one away - which was the only exercise we got) which are set away from the main hotel. It was massive with a large sitting area, a wonderful bedroom and a very large bathroom. We would have had a slightly better view if we'd been in one of the higher ones but to be honest we weren't there much. The pool is large and cool and quiet with great drink service. The restaurant near the pool actually sprays you with a mist of cool water and the food is wonderful from fresh salads to pizzas. The service was obsolutely fantastic - some of the best we've had. The meals were great and we had some lovely wine lessons! Overall an absolutely fantastic hotel - however I'm glad we left when we did as it was the beginning of August and quite a few kids arrived .... We'll be back - just not in August!
