Castello di Casole – A Timbers Resort exterior
The award-winning Castello di Casole – A Timbers Resort reopens on 22 March for the 2016 season, with a variety of new family, spa and culinary experiences on offer for its guests. Since its opening in July 2012, the property has quickly established itself as one of the best luxury estates in the region, and this year, guests can anticipate the standard of service they've come to expect, as well as new packages to showcase the best of Castello di Casole.

Set in over 88 acres of vineyards and 13 acres of olive groves this historic 4,200-acre estate is quintessentially Tuscan, from its traditional Tuscan fare to the 28 artfully reconstructed Tuscan farmhouses dotted around the property. The 41-suite boutique hotel offers guests rustic elegance in spectacular settings with over 100 acres of vineyards, a designated model game reserve, along with a journey into the region’s gastronomy.  

For families, an Easter package is available from 25 to 28 March, with 20% off the Best Available Rate starting from a Suite Classica. It includes two nights in a suite of choice, a welcome cocktail, daily breakfast, an Easter welcome box, egg colouring and biscuit making for children, as well as a 10% discount on spa treatments. Rates start from €513 per night based on a Suite Classica.  

Meanwhile, located in the former wine cellar, the Hotel's Essere spa, which features treatments inspired by natural products indigenous to Tuscany, will offer a four-night Digital Detox package for those looking to switch off, or, for those seeking a pampering experience, the Grand Spa Indulgence offers unlimited spa treatments over a four-night stay.  

This year, Castello di Casole is adding a number of packages to its existing culinary offering. A five-night gastronomic adventure – Divine Flavors – will divulge to guests some of the secrets of Tuscan cuisine with a private cooking class, a guided walk through the vineyards of the estate, as well as dinner by candlelight at Ristorante Tosca with wine expertly selected by the sommelier. Guests will also be able to participate in a Mixology Class at the elegant Bar Visconti, covering the basic techniques of mixology, working seasonal ingredients into recipes and getting creative with garnishes.

Finally for thrillseekers, Castello di Casole has partnered with Ferrari to offer driving experiences, including a Chianti and Siena journey where guests will enjoy the opportunity to drive the very latest Ferrari models through the Chianti hills along the route of the legendary Mille Miglia race and on to Siena. Test drives are also available for corporate groups, guided by a professional driver who will offer expert hints and tips.
