HLike the castle in a fairy tale, Castello di Vicarello sits on a Tuscan hill, surrounded by 40 hectares of vineyard, olive groves and farmland, including an organic kitchen garden. Walks, bike and horse rides are therefore some of the preferred activities of the castle’s guests, but the spa suite with steam room, sauna and jacuzzi is definitely another highlight of the property. The castle is decorated in a traditional style, with luxury touches like vast stone fireplaces and cosy leather armchairs, the ideal place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine from the castle vineyards.
