Set in the gentle rolling hills of Tuscany, Castello di Vicarello is a peaceful 900-year-old property, which can be rented as an exclusive retreat. The castle’s seven double rooms and suites have ensuite bathrooms and are individually decorated with a tasteful mix of Chinese antiques, 50s lines and Venetian style. Sleeping up to 14 people, some rooms have stone walls, antique four-poster beds and magnificent fireplaces. Outdoors, there are terraces and gardens from which to admire the estate’s working vineyard and olive grove, and the panoramic views of the verdant Tuscan valleys. Castello di Vicarello also has a spa, two swimming pools, a library, and an authentic farmhouse kitchen for home-grown Tuscan cuisine served in the candlelit flower-filled courtyard.
