Fresh Picks: Hotel Castello di Casole

- Joy Pecknold, Passport blog editor

“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside Hotel Castello di Casole.

Where: Near Siena in Tuscany, Italy sits this 4,200-acre property, one of the largest private estates in the country, which boasts a 1,000-year history.

What: Cypress tree-lined lanes, rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves, and that’s just the terrain. The 41 hotel suites are stunning, but for those who dream of living a little more Under the Tuscan Sun, take a fully-equipped villa or farmhouse which can accommodate a whole family, even a large Italian one.

Who: Recently divorced women looking to recover (see: Under the Tuscan Sun reference above) and lovers of those liquids Italy does best, i.e. olive oil and vino. The property bottles both exclusively in limited batches for guests only.

Why: Bottomless olives and wine. Intoxicating vistas. And with private infinity pools, a spa and pasta-making lessons, that’s not even the half of it. Livin’ la vita dolce.
