A deeply romantic and enchanting place, with a quiet sophistication and old world elegance, the history and beauty of Tuscany comes alive here. We love the personalized attention to detail, sensitive restoration and devotion to the authentic culture (and food!) of the country. This is the place of Tuscan dreams…
Castello Medievale Cinigiano, Italy
Located on its own hilltop with stunning Tuscan countryside views, this ancient 12th century castle embodies centuries of romance and history. Built in 1112, the careful renovation has restored the heart and soul of the place, skillfully incorporating subtle modern amenities while preserving the beautiful stone work, original wood beams, teracotta tiling and historic detail.
Redesigned as a seven suite boutique hotel and residence, this graceful estate has been re-imagined with simple luxuries and an informal elegance. Featuring an exotic fusion of classic hunting lodge, Indonesian and traditional antiques and decor collected from every corner of the globe, you’ll feel both the personal and ancient history here. More of a compound than a single residence, each of the suites is situated privately around the hillside and include the atmospheric historic features and eclectic individual style.
The “cucina privato” restaurant serves amazing seasonal and organic food including wild game and wine from the property’s vast estate, served in the candlelit flower-filled courtyard in summer and by the fireside in winter.
A central component in the architectural restoration work, the gardens were partially created by designer Giuppi Pietromarchi. Lush and beautifully maintained, there is no clear demarcation where the gardens end and the stunning Tuscan landscape begins. The result is dramatic but in harmony and balance with the environment, with a multitude of scented flowers, centuries-old olive trees and lush lavender and jasmine. With one mosaic tiled pool tucked away among the trees and another with stunning views of the countryside, each has been sensitively integrated into the surroundings and are inviting summer escapes.
Rich with timeless history and breathtaking natural beauty, this Tuscan castle is a rare treat.

Located just outside the village of Poggi del Sasso, the town of Cinigiano is between Paganico and Grosseto, in the coastal Maremma region of southwest Tuscany. A charming and rural vineyard dotted area, it’s bordered by Monte Amiata to the east and the Mediterranean coast to the west. Ideal for vineyard hopping, start with Poggio Antico in Montalcino and grab a winery map from the Wine Roads office in town to explore further. The beautiful Val d’Orcia, Montalcino, and Siena are within an hours drive, as are Pienza and Montepuliciano. Further afield in just under two hours are Pisa, Florence and Perugia.
