Castiglion del Bosco is an 800-year-old estate comprising the ruins of a castle, a medieval church, and the Borgo, a village that was once an important farming and social hub. The Borgo now forms the heart of the resort and 23 suites are housed within its buildings. The resort also offers 10 villas which have been created from restored farmhouses and feature antique furniture, artisanal pieces and modern comforts.
“Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is a celebration of the beauty, landscape and rich gastronomic heritage of Tuscany,” says Radha Arora, president of Rosewood. “It is also the perfect illustration of Rosewood’s trademark A Sense of Place philosophy. Massimo and Chiara Ferragamo have created a world-class resort that is authentic, stylish and historic. We look forward to working with them to build on their success and to invite a new audience to discover Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.”
Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco also offers a cooking school, a carefully curated store, an organic kitchen garden, a spa, an infinity pool and fitness centre. Guests can choose to dine at two restaurants – the more rustic Osteria La Canonica or the understated Ristorante Campo del Drago which offers classic Tuscan and Italian cooking. Castiglion del Bosco is also a historic winery and is the fifth biggest producer of Brunello di Montalcino. The estate’s breathtaking 18-hole golf course was designed by the legendary winner of the British Open, Tom Weiskopf. This prestigious course set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site offers an unparalleled playing experience in Italy’s only private golf club.
This announcement comes as Rosewood has embarked upon an ambitious global expansion with a particular focus on Europe and Asia. Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is the third Rosewood property in Europe and follows Rosewood London, which opened in October 2013 to great acclaim and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris which will reopen following a complete restoration. Rosewood’s most recent addition is Rosewood Beijing, which opened its doors in October 2014.
