Castello di Vicarello in Italy: A Fascinating Luxury Retreat
Do you like this article?
Luxury retreats are always fascinating, but they get even more so when you add a little historical charm to the offer. You will see exactly what we mean after you take a look at the fairy-tale-like Castello di Vicarello, a 12th century castle that’s been lushly appointed to accommodate elite guests today.
Set on a hilltop in the Maremma region of Tuscany, Italy, the resort offers everything a luxe getaway is supposed to. Mind-blowing views of the wild, green landscapes, maximum comfort, first-class service, elegant decors, delicious food and a serene spa center. There are seven individual suites to book at Vicarello, each one carefully restored and decorated in an tasteful manner, using both antique and modern pieces of hand-picked furniture.
The owners of the property are Carlo and Aurora Baccheschi Berti and they assure us that all the food prepared at Castello di Vicarello is made using local organic ingredients. The organic gardens on the property offer different seasonal herbs and vegetables, plus centuries-old olive trees and numerous scented flowers like jasmine and lavender.
The resort is a haven of serenity and tranquility where every guest is invited to completely unwind by the two beautiful swimming pools or in the luxurious spa. Here you can contemplate the beauty of nature and the complexity of history. After all, the story of the Maremma region is quite interesting: it was first discovered by the Etruscans, several centuries before the arrival of Romans in the area. The Romans then built a spa on the Etruscan ruins and much later (in 1112) the imposing Castello di Vicarello was erected. As we said, luxury retreats can be very fascinating.
