Serenity and seclusion

Delight in the divine offerings of this heavenly slice of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany; gastronomy is inexplicably enshrined in the Tuscan tradition. Indeed, UNESCO values the importance of the Mediterranean diet so highly that it is a designated intangible cultural heritage. At Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, a double-helping of UNESCO accolades can be found; allow yourself to be sustained and nourished by the very best provisions the pantry of the Val d’Orcian region can provide. The enthralment of each bodily sense is truly at the heart of a stay at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.

Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco’s luxurious accommodation includes authentically Tuscan suites, incorporating locally-produced textiles and artisanal accessories. Serenity and seclusion is served when a stay in one of the hotel’s 11 bespoke villas is on the menu; reincarnations of 17th- and 18th-century farmhouses, each villa features a heated pool, terraces, pergolas and gardens, so if adventure is on tomorrow’s agenda, then relaxation in striking scenery can certainly be scheduled for today.

The best of the Tuscan pantry

A truly remarkable stop on the Italian culinary map, immersion of oneself in the gourmandism on offer at the del Bosco is a necessity. The hotel boasts two outstanding restaurants, an organic kitchen garden and a renowned cooking school. With Executive Chef, Matteo Temperini at the helm, a simple but impeccably refined menu embodying local culinary traditions has earned the hotel’s Ristorante Campo del Drago* a Michelin Star.

The 900-year-old estate comes furnished with its own winery whose vineyards extend from the hotel, undulating toward and caressing the Mediterranean; indeed, the landscape’s juxtaposition of arid, windy peaks and wetter hills give the ruby red Brunello di Montalcino produced at del Bosco its intense and complex flavour. A stay at the Castiglion del Bosco may be a foretaste of heaven, but markedly a slice of heaven you can take home with you. La Canonica Cooking School is exactly that – the key to unlocking the canon of the traditional Tuscan table. Surely, there is no greater souvenir than having the required ingredients and impetus to nourish your dearest at home with an authentic taste of Tuscany.

Reverence for the landscape

Castiglion del Bosco radiates patent reverence for the landscape and the fruit borne from the rippling hills surrounding the hotel; enjoyment of the land is integral to any stay. Del Bosco boasts Italy’s only private golf club – an exclusive 18-hole golf course designed by champion golfer Tom Weiskopf offering unparalleled views of the protected Val d’Orcian vista. Exclusivity is enshrined in the ethos of the club – with the course’s sole use reserved for hotel guests and the club’s own selective membership – even reserving protected teeing off times between 8 and 10 am for hotel guests.

Each day brings a new adventure at del Bosco. For those whose perspective transcends terra firma, the Fly Brunello experience takes you on a tour of skies and vines, culminating in a meal at Il Silene*, brainchild of Michelin-starred chef and olive oil connoisseur, Roberto Rossi. In contrast, if connection to the earth is the source of your sustenance, the hotel offers horse riding, yoga (with private and group lessons available), and guided bike tours; the tranquillity befitting of a trip to a Rosewood spa is also your behest. Lodging in the ancient landscapes of the Medici, it is truly hard not to feel spellbound by the history radiating throughout the rolling hills spilling out from the Castiglion del Bosco into the Val d’Orcia below.
