Tuscany, Casole d'Elsa
Belmond Castello di Casole is set amid the rolling green hills of Tuscany. The site is ideal for culture lovers and dates back to the Bronze Age, with local artefacts on display in the 10th Century castle which houses the hotel. The building retains many original details, including rustic wooden beams and stone architecture, while the spa is located in the former wine cellar. Surrounding the hotel are the luscious gardens which blend into the wider estate and its olive groves and vineyards.
Spend days relaxing by the swimming pool, or explore the area with hiking, cycling or Vespa trips. Local experts will teach you to paint using watercolours, cook authentic dishes using seasonal ingredients or unwind with yoga. And when it comes to dining there are some spectacular options available, including a six course tasting menu.
