Situated in the Chianti region, Castello Del Nero is an exclusive Tuscan getaway nestled in between rolling green hills filled with lush olive groves and vineyards. Regal and imposing, the grand traditional exterior of the building itself betrays its rich history – the property has been lovingly restored and is now a sumptuous retreat renowned for its luxurious hospitality.
50 charming rooms and suites are decorated in lavish, opulent regency style, in a perfectly-executed nod to the castle’s original heyday featuring marble, gold leaf and extravagant bold prints and colours. Whether guests are indulging in one of the 18 meticulously decorated suites or staying in one of the beautiful deluxe rooms, they’re sure to find their stay comfortable with warm hospitality laid on by attentive, friendly staff throughout their stay.

Breath-taking views, and sumptuous cuisine

The hotel also boasts breath-taking views over the ancient landscape surrounding it. Castello Del Nero’s stunning grounds with formal gardens are ideal to sit and read, contemplate, or enjoy afternoon tea or drinks; whilst the sun-soaked terrace is open for drinks and cocktails all day during summer months.

Offering authentic Tuscan cuisine, this is certainly a hotel for the more discerning foodie guest who wishes to sample the best delights the region has to offer. All dishes served in the Michelin-starred La Torre restaurant are comprised of locally sourced, handpicked ingredients – whilst La Taverna is dedicated to producing genuine, rustic dishes, which could hail straight from the kitchen of a traditional local inn.
