Stunning restored 12th century features around every corner.

Castello Del Nero Hotel & Spa

Once the country home of the eminent and influential Florentine Del Nero and Torrigiani families, this stunning 12th century castello is, once again held in the highest esteem in the Chianti region.

Retaining as many of the original features as possible, whilst seamlessly incorporating all the modern amenities that a discerning traveller could desire, Castello Del Nero provides an luxurious escape to the Tuscan countryside.

Now a 5-star hotel, the main castello is the heart of the farmhouse with other buildings that would have once housed the stores and servants quarters converted into unique spaces. The bar has been created in the original kitchens, whilst the hotel's Michelin-starred La Torre was once home to the estate's stables. The castello continues to grow with plans to convert the many estate buildings found across the 740acres into further accommodation.

The hotel has only 50 rooms, spread across the various ancient buildings, with options for exclusive stays for groups and weddings for around 100 guests. The nature of the building's history and the rooms' designs ensure that no room is alike. Painstakingly restored, original terracotta floors have been buffed into the 21st century, and family crests hang proudly on suite walls; the history behind this hotel is wonderful inescapable.  If you are looking to stay in a Tuscan castle and relish its unique history, then the Presidential Suite is the one for you, offering stunning wall and ceiling frescos, breathtaking views of the gardens and surrounding hills from your top floor vantage point, as well as two bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms. All your needs can be catered for here. 

Explore the stunning Chianti region from Castello Del Nero, with romantic walks across the estate, or venture away from the hotel in your car or with the hotel shuttle service. If a little retail therapy is in order, central Florence and high end fashion brands are all less than hour away.

If aromatherapy is more your thing, this 5-star hotel's ESPA spa, is the largest in the area, providing a variety of traditional treatments, massages and even Castello Del Nero signature treatments that make use of the hotel's homemade olive oil.

We are looking forward to discovering more of Castello Del Nero's secrets when Luxury Explorer visits this stunning piece of Tuscan history in 2018.
