Immerse yourself in the Maremman countryside at one of the region’s most beautiful and secluded hotels, Castello di Vicarello. This luxury ‘castle’ affords the amenities of a luxury hotel with the private feel of a residence.
Nine suites, 40 hectares of grounds and attentive staff make this historic estate the perfect setting for a family reunion, a once-in-a-lifetime holiday with friends or an intimate destination for a small group of friends to re-group.
The Castle of Vicarello is a medieval castle in Cinigiano, Tuscany, Italy. The complex was built in the thirteenth century as part of the Republic of Siena, and became an important defensive structure.
The castle is currently operated as a hotel and farm. One of the two original stone square towers is well-preserved. The buildings that make up the complex are organized around an inner courtyard, which is accessed through an archway; the walls are completely covered in stone. Not far from the castle was an old church, now deconsecrated and used as a private residence, which is recognizable by its bell tower.
Castello di Vicarello is located in the territory of the frazione of Poggi del Sasso. Set in a 12th-century castle, this posh all-suite hotel is 9 km from the ColleMassari SPA winery and 18 km from the village of Paganico.
Style & Character
