The Castiglion del Bosco is a living country estate located in Montalcino, outside of Siena. Nestled in the Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site in Tuscany characterized by gentle, cultivated hills and picturesque towns and villages.
The historic 4,500-acre estate is composed of the main building, Il Borgo, with 23 luxurious suites, and 9 former farmhouses that have been renovated into authentic Tuscan villas. The buildings match their heritage with historic Tuscan ornaments and antiques for a warm and elegant feeling. Each of the suites offers a master bedroom, bathroom with soaking tubs, a sitting room and private terrace with panoramic views of the countryside, plus LCD TV, high-speed Wi-Fi and Ipod stations. Each villa is unique, but all feature landscaped gardens, a barbeque terrace and a heated outdoor stone pool. All have a well-equipped kitchen and the option of a personal chef to prepare in-villa meals, plus home entertainment technology.
The Estate has two restaurants, the Osteria La Canonica for more casual lunches and dinners and the Ristorante Il Drago for fine dining, both serving seasonal and regional cuisine prepared from local ingredients.
Also on the estate is the Canonica Culinary Academy, open for cooking classes on authentic Tuscan dishes, and the critically acclaimed winery, that produces Tuscany's iconic wine such as the Brunello di Montalcino. There is an Orto, or kitchen garden, with its 180 varieties of vegetables and herbs, a Bottega, a culinary shop and a well-stocked cigar room. A state-of the art fitness center and 24/7 reception, concierge and room service are available. The grounds also include a heated stone infinity pool with views of the town of Montalcino and the Care Suite Spa, specializing in unique therapies based on organic ingredients from the Estate.
The size of Castiglion del Bosco's estate also allows for miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails, plus areas for tennis, soccer and bocce. The extensive garden includes orchards and vineyards adding true beauty to this authentic Tuscan estate.
