Castello di Casole – Tuscany, Italy

Italy-CasaleLaCasa

In the rolling hills not far from the mythic cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano is one of the largest private landholdings in all of Italy. Vineyards and orchards of olive trees pattern the hillsides. Two grand cypress-lined lanes ascend to a historic castle poised to open as a 41-suite boutique hotel. Dotting the 4,200-acre historic estate are restored Farmhouse Villas each with dramatic glass-tiled private pools and now a fractional private residence club.

Preserving the rich history and the natural wonder of the Castello di Casole estate has been a priority throughout all stages of development. Timbers Resorts and their architects, contractors and consultants worked to plan and implement a low-impact, sustainable design that not only maintains, but enhances the integrity of the property’s buildings, landscapes and open spaces.

Commanding the most favored sites throughout the property are the restored farmhouses or Casali. The Casali are unique to each other and are separately named with their own custom style, layout and color scheme. Each Casale farmhouse is a collection of main home and outbuildings, which now serve as unique and inviting guest quarters. Indoor spaces for each family compound are 4,000 to 7,000 square feet or 370 to 650 square meters. They are organized around a series of glass-tiled, infinity edge pools and hand set stone patios warmed by original forno a legna or wood burning ovens.

Estate-produced wine, extra virgin olive oil and fresh flowers anticipate arrival. Your refrigerator and pantry are stocked with practical necessities and sundries from local stores and markets.

The Casali residences are available through the residential fractional interest program or as whole ownership. Prices range from € 290,000 – 445,000 Euro for Residential Interests; Whole Ownership pricing starts at € 3.7M Euro.
