Castle of Casole
41 suites, an infinity pool with a sunset view and a spa between natural stone walls in the former wine cellar, in which even massage oils smell of Mediterranean flora. The mighty Castello (approx. 23 kilometers west of Siena) once belonged to the director Luchino Visconti. A US company has now converted it into a luxury resort with all the gimmicks, for vacations like in the Tuscany brochure. Suite with breakfast from 399 euros (Casole d’Elsa, Loc. Querceto, Tel. 05 77/ 96 15 01, www.castellodicasole.com).
