Castello Di Casole, A Belmond Hotel, Tuscany, Opens Two New Private Villas
Experience Villa Thesan and Villa Usil now
Castello di Casole, A Belmond Hotel, Tuscany, has just announced the opening of two new private villas, launching now ahead of the 2024 season. Inspired by the property’s rich Etruscan heritage, Villa Thesan and Villa Usil will reflect the codes of the Tuscan tradition interpreted by interior designer Alessandro Moriconi.
Just five-minutes’ walk from the hotel, located on a 10th century 1300-hectare estate, the two new villas boast outstanding views of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves which make for a more authentic and old school holiday for anyone seeking a different experience.
A Return To Etruscan Living
The Castello di Casole estate is home to a collection of Etruscan masterpieces unearthed on its grounds in the 1870s, thanks to a series of excavations. Today, these pieces can be discovered inside the Essere Spa and the library, as well as at the nearby Casole d’Elsa archaeological museum.
A Reinterpretation Of Classic Tuscan Style
Alessandro Moriconi, Art Director, is the mastermind of the interior design of the villas, which combine Tuscan tradition with a modern approach, in line with Belmond’s vision. Thanks to careful research of reclaimed materials and objects of Tuscan craftsmanship and antiques in the area, Moriconi gives the new villas an authentic and rustic charm, conveying the feeling of a home from home.
Exclusive Experiences, Closer To Nature
On top of that, guests can also benefit from exclusive, private experiences, within the sanctuary of their own villa. In harmony with the villa namesakes, guests can partake in astronomical sun-gazing led by an expert astrotourist guide, unveiling the mysteries of solar eruptions and coronal emissions using a specialised solar telescope.
To step back in time and live the life of an Etruscan, guests may indulge in relaxing Etruscan and Tuscan spa treatments in the Villa. Guests can also partake in bespoke cosmetology workshops, delving into the depths of ancient cosmetic lore and sharing age-old beauty recipes cherished by Etruscan women, who were great aficionados of self-care and well-being.
