As most of the traditional Italian villages, Castiglion del Bosco has been standing for centuries on top of a strategic hill, dating back as far as one thousand years ago. Its fertile territory has been extensively cultivated for local and organic products and top quality grapes, always ensuring its owners prosperity and sustainance.

The heart of the estate lies in the Borgo, the ancient village, that today houses 23 suites and a stunning selection of luxury villas scattered around the proprierty, each with its own style and interiors. The village comes alive with its curated selection of activities such as the cookting school, the kitchen garden and two restaurants, giving the guests a taste of rustic life.

In 2003, the prestigious Ferragamo family acquired the property with a mission to preserve its ancient history, while recreating the authentic social role of the estate with a modern feel and contemporary features.

Restored from 17th- and 18th-century farmshouses, the 11 villas of Castiglion del Bosco offer the possibility of experiencing a true Tuscan stay for families and groups of friends, taking advantages of the many amenities available. Each villa has a unique feel and mood reflected on tailor-made interiors: with warm colors and soft hues perfeclty blending with the sorrounding countryside, raw materials such as wood, stone and natural textures are exposed and arranged keeping the original atmosphere present. With bespoke furniture, antique finds and authentic silverware, Chiara Ferragamo worked with designer Teresa Bürgisser Sancristoforo in carefully sourcing the best materials to reflect Tuscany's cultural heritage.

The 23 suites in the Borgo offer the comfort of a modern stay with the intention of mantaing the feeling of homes rather than hotel rooms.
