19 Mar, 2014 Castiglion del Bosco, a Tuscany Estate, restores one of its Villa's to magnificence

Situated within the UNESCO-listed Val d’Orcia Natural Park and in the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino wine-making region, Castiglion del Bosco is a 4,200-acre country estate privately owned by Massimo Ferragamo and ennobled by eight centuries of history.

Today, Castiglion del Bosco is a unique combination: it's one of Tuscany's largest private estates; it's an elegant Tuscan home away from home with a range of elegant and spacious suites and villas; it's a superb culinary destination, an exclusive private golf club, and a leading Brunello di Montalcino winery. With breathtaking views across rolling wooded hills, extensive vineyards and a great swathe of southern Tuscany, Castiglion del Bosco offers its guests the pleasures of the authentic Tuscan lifestyle combined with the refined ambience, unrivalled attention to details, unparalleled amenities and the discreet service of a world-class country resort.

In addition to the already existing 23 Suites and 9 luxurious Villas, a newly restored Villa, named Villa Oddi, will be open and available for bookings soon. Villa Oddi has been carefully restored to its ancient magnificence, while benefiting from state of the art technology, all with modern comforts and luxuries, elegant and sophisticated interiors. It also boasts a private infinity pool that overlooks the rolling Tuscan hills and the village of Montalcino in the distance.

Castiglion del Bosco is the perfect place to spend quality time with the family, come together and enjoy one another’s company in the heart of Tuscany. Enchanting green meadows and tall trees surround the suites and villas, just waiting to be discovered; pool houses turn pink at sunset, and aquamarine water offers a precious opportunity to splash about and have fun. Magical atmospheres, special bonds, and laughter. Memories of a special, carefree existence to be treasured forever.

Castiglion del Bosco offers a place for children to play, have fun and use their imagination in its enchanting settings. Their Kids Club can be accessed freely, providing kids with hours of entertainment every day thanks to its absorbing activities and magical atmosphere. It offers a fun evening menu, cooking workshops and treasure hunts, as well as kids’ swimming and tennis lessons. A wide range of activities are available for our young guests, which can go horse-riding or explore the woods, attend boot camps, go on adventures and take archery lessons in the midst of nature. They can also try their hand at photography, have a go at oil painting, or study the stars like an astronomer.

Within easy driving distance of the estate there are a host of Medieval and Renaissance hill towns to explore. Wine and food activities include tasting tours of Castiglion del Bosco’s winery, cooking lessons and guided autumn truffle hunts. Sport and outdoor enthusiasts can hike or cycle on or off the estate on a network of way-marked trails. Horseback riding, hot air ballooning and night safaris can also be arranged. It is a tale of revival, which has seen life restored to 17th and 18th-century farmhouses resplendent with the elegance of yesteryear, impeccable hospitality, rituals and memories, in an elegy of colours, flavours and values handed down over the years. It is the tale of a deeply rooted Tuscan way of life.
