In the Tuscan Countryside: COMO Castello del Nero
Hidden among the rolling hills of Chianti, COMO Castello del Nero is an ornate Tuscan resort where hospitality, art and traditions harmoniously unite. The 12th-century castle is layered with original Renaissance frescoes, priceless artifacts and distinct contemporary décor designed by Italian architect and designer Paola Navone. Discover the beautiful COMO Castello del Nero: a place where one can embrace the quintessentially Italian countryside.
Specifically, the Chianti region of Tuscany is well-known for its wine production and offers an idyllic holiday spot for visitors from across the world. Culture, wine, food, and art take center stage in this region, and vacationers have myriad opportunities to go cycling, horse riding and participate in the grape harvest.
Amongst the rolling hills of Chianti, and the truffle scents in the air harps COMO Castello Del Nero: a union of warm hospitality, culinary traditions, and surrounding nature.
"I share with Como the idea that luxury today can be an appreciation of simplicity and respect of traditions in a contemporary and unaggressive environment," says Paola Navone. "Here, I mix things that come from different centuries and continents, promoting craftsmanship using everyday things in a non-conventional way and adding a touch of fascination for imperfect shapes."
The Michelin-starred La Torre restaurant located in the original stables offers delectable gourmet experience cuisine using the finest Tuscan produce, much from the estate’s kitchen garden.
The property also features two informal restaurants: La Taverna for a traditional Tuscan meal and the Pavilion which offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and COMO signature dishes. The wine cellar’s structure dates to the 12th century, but the hotel’s mixologists are ready to give every drink a modern twist, from Martinis to Prosecco cocktails.
At COMO Castello del Nero guests can experience the Tuscan culture through cooking classes and truffle hunting, wine tastings or simple by taking a walk in the sublime autumn landscapes. In addition to the various experience, the ultimate relaxation can be found at the COMO Shambhala Retreat, offering a selection of therapeutic spa treatments.
