The Castiglion del Bosco Estate lies within the confines of the Val d'Orcia, an undulating landscape known for its enchanting beauty and seductive juxtaposition of colors and textures. Deep green in spring and golden in fall, this gentle land is also rich in art and culture. Carefully preserved ancient sites, dating back to the Etruscan era, blend in with art from the Medieval and early Renaissance periods. The area is also famous for its agriculture. The vineyards of the Val d'Orcia, including Castiglion del Bosco's own, produce one of the most coveted Italian red wines, Brunello di Montalcino, and its younger sibling, Rosso di Montalcino.
In addition to their deep-rooted appreciation for art, history, food and wine, Tuscans are great sports enthusiasts. Castiglion del Bosco offers ample opportunities to live the Tuscan outdoor life to the full. Though it’s a recent arrival on the scene, our 18-hole championship-standard Castiglion del Bosco Golf Club is already being ranked among the finest in Italy by golfing professionals, and the extensive wooded hills and valleys on the vast Estate provide endless scope for trekking, mountain biking, nature walks and hunting with our resident game warden. Fly fishing, horseback riding and hot-air ballooning are also among the activities offered to Members and Guests, while we can also arranged an exclusive private view of the Palio – the passion-stirring horse race that takes place twice each summer in Siena.
From Castiglion del Bosco, the whole of Tuscany is within easy reach. Whether arranging an ice-cream making class in Florence, an art jaunt to Pisa, a shopping tour of fashion outlet stores, or simply advising on places to visit and people to meet, our in-house concierge can help you to make the most of this unique Italian region.
