Stretch out on a lounger by one of the two pools and simply unwind—the choice is yours.

Castello di Vicarello

Though this property dates back to the 11th century, its charming architecture has been given modern updates such as surround sound in all communal and private areas, Wi-Fi throughout, air conditioning and heating. Despite modern amenities, you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time, eating in dining rooms with exposed wood ceiling beams, stone walls and cosy leather club chairs.

Castello di Vicarello has five bedrooms in its main house and four in its garden. Suites can be rented in two different blocks – each block with its own private infinity pool; all nine have en-suite bathrooms and several have features like private entrances, lounge areas, kitchenettes and terraces. In the main house, there are four bedrooms with king beds and one with a queen bed. The garden suites have four bedrooms with king beds.

The estate itself offers the opportunity to learn about local produce in the kitchen gardens, take a course in the medieval kitchen or even help with the grape and olive harvests, giving you a sense of the rhythm of Tuscan life. If you can’t get enough of the region, it’s a 90-minute drive or less to the city of Siena and several beaches on the Mediterranean shore.
