Castello di Vicarello

Maremma, Italy

Prices From: $540 - $690

Deep in the green hills of Maremma, in the heart of Tuscany under a sky lit by stars, a Castle was constructed. Today, it has been rescued from ruin and transformed into an exclusive luxury retreat where you will feel the welcoming, comforting touch of the owners, Aurora and Carlo Baccheschi Berti.

With a clear blue sky, you can perceive the sea in the far distance and the fresh salty sea breeze...

The garden is an integral part of the whole restoration project and was designed with discipline and simplicity at heart. The roses, lavender, mulberry trees unite naturally with the olive grove, vineyard and woods. There are two pools with wonderful panoramic view, which are open from April to October.

During summertime, you can dine outside, under the sky without equal, or in winter, in front of the fire to warm the soul. For guests who would like, we prepare meals. Menus are based on local recipes, using products from the Castle's vegetable garden and wines from the vineyard or from the area. Vicarello produces its own biological olive oil and wine. Cooking lessons and wine tasting are available on request. The magnificent position of Vicarello makes it an ideal place for meetings offering total privacy. Service is highly personalized.

Castello di Vicarello features four suites and one villa. All are equipped with highest standard, valuable furniture and objects gathered through years of travelling, all chosen to provide a feeling of harmony with the surroundings.

Near the castle, you could walk into nature thanks to the Mediterranean wood surrounding or do horse riding. Under less than an hour drive, you can enjoy two golf course facilities and hunting is possible on request.

Vicarello is a place where you can stare forever into Tuscany's green hills or its blue sky. Time stands still at this charming estate. Silence abounds. History lives on each path, in each stone, and every wall sings a song of an ancient past.
