Sheer romance and rural bliss in Tuscany at an award-winning castle with a panoramic wellness centre – breakfast included

Expect total immersion in all things Tuscan at Castello di Vicarello, an award-winning boutique castle in the stunning Maremma hills. The setting is typical of the region, as the property sits in splendid isolation atop a forested hillside, covered in ancient olive and lemon groves, where finger-like Cypress trees point skywards and inspirational 360-degree views roll out all around. Dating back 900 years, the this bolthole boasts a fascinating history, with interiors filled with objects and curios amassed from the owners’ extensive world travels. Even better, the property's very own vineyards and land produces an abundance of organic farm-to-table goodies that will enchant you from the very moment you arrive.

This is a sublime year-round destination – springtime sees the fragrant aroma of myriad herbs, jasmine and roses, while summer visitors can cool off in one of two panoramic swimming pools, caressed gently by the breeze. The autumn is truly a season of mellow mists and fruitfulness, when olives and grapes are harvested and you can forage for wild mushrooms and truffles in the surrounding forests. Winter is all about cosying down beside your very own crackling log fire in one of the seven to-die-for suites.

Days can easily be spent drinking in the inspirational views, which resemble a dreamy landscape painting. Or you can indulge in wine-tasting or cookery classes run by your genial hosts. Make sure you bring a healthy appetite too, as the hearty and authentic Tuscan fare on offer here is hard to resist. It all makes for a blissful experience, earning Castello di Vicarello a host of rave reviews on TripAdvisor.

Good to know

Accommodation

Located off the main flagstone courtyard, with fabulous views and original stone walls, you may choose between a Chinese room, a Sprone or Giardino suite (the latter two are over two levels), or the Deluxe Grotta suite located by the infinity pool. All suites burst with character and come with an open fireplace and kitchenette. Furnishings are eclectic and are sourced from all over Europe, the Far East and Indonesia (where the owners lived for many years). Opt for a Deluxe Grotta suite for even more space and an extra dose of charm.

Dining

Expect hearty home-style seasonal Tuscan fare with many of the ingredients sourced directly from the property's gardens and farmland, from wild mushrooms to olive oil. As well as exquisite home-made pastas, look out for the delicious pigeon pate and sublime steaks. All can be enjoyed by a roaring open fire in the stone-walled dining room or al fresco on the roof terrace with sweeping countryside views.

Spa

The panoramic wellness centre is a truly romantic retreat which seamlessly blends into its natural surroundings. Soak your cares away in the wooden tub or relax in the sauna and steam room. Various beauty treatments and massages are also available.

Location

The property sits in Poggi del Sasso Cinigiano, a remote hillside spot in southern Tuscany’s Maremma region.
