Castello di Vicarello: A Dreamy Tuscan Castle

A dreamy medieval castle, a luxurious combination of history and charm, the perfect location to enjoy the Italian lifestyle surrounded by the rolling green Tuscan hills and the unique landscapes that distinguish the region of Tuscany.

​A luxurious traditional stone castle retreat located just outside the medieval village of Poggi del Sasso, in between the beautiful city of Siena, known by many for the famous Palio di Siena a medieval competition that takes place to times a year, and the seaside village of Castiglione della Peschaia, known for its striking castle overlooking the sea.

​Castello di Vicarello, is a unique retreat for many reasons, one of them being it enjoys a 360-degree view over the rolling Tuscan hills covered in centuries-old olive trees and vineyards. The long history of the castle is stored in the mysterious and Renaissance-remanding architecture, which has been restored and brought to its ancient splendor thanks to owners Carlo and Aurora Baccheschi Berti.

The elegantly decorated interiors feature original stone floors and brick walls. An exquisite combination of antique and modern furnishings from Europe and from the Far East hint at the many years Carlo and Aurora lived in Indonesia. Four of the seven rooms and suites available are centered around the castle’s ancient flagstone paved courtyard while the remaining three independent suites are situated in the midst of verdant gardens, white roses, lavender and ancient olive trees.

Not far from the castle was an ancient parish church, now deconsecrated and used as a private residence, which is only recognizable by the bell tower.

​Tuscany is renowned for the authentic and fresh cuisine and the kitchen of Castello di Vicarello even overcomes the expectations; offering its guests organically grown fruit and vegetables, home-made wine and olive oil and a menu that changes daily, served in a romantic courtyard during summer or by the fireside in winter.

For relax-escapes seekers two infinity pools and a Spa surrounded by the Tuscan hills definitely fit the standards, while for adventurers the castle is surrounded by panoramic roads ideal for cycling or horse riding.
