An oasis of peace in the heart of Chianti.

Set like a diamond amongst the hills of the Florentine Chianti, the luxury 5-star hotel Castello del Nero is the ideal place where to stay for a relaxing holiday, far from daily stress. The hospitality facility is found at Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, a Tuscan locality which enjoys a strategic position: indeed, the most visited cities and towns of the region, such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Montalcino, are easily reached in a short time from here. With origins dating back to the XII century, Castello del Nero has remained intact throughout the centuries, also thanks to a complete refurbishment which has brought back to light frescoes, coats of arms, fireplaces, vaulted ceilings and all those details which have made it precious one era after another. The complex is made up of 50 bedrooms and suites with all amenities: the elegance and classic lines of the furniture blend in with the modernity of the services making each guest feel “at home”. Great care has been taken for the spirit and regeneration of the body: the objective at Castello del Nero is to be a real and true oasis of peace where to rest and recapture the right harmony between body and soul. This is possible thanks to the presence within the facility of the ESPA spa, an avant-garde well-being centre of over 1000 square metres where to enjoy various treatments – also customized – to regain one’s own well-being such as Mindful treatments for face and body and ESPA Sleep Ritual, to which it is possible to match menus dedicated to gaining some well-earned rest. And as regarding food, Castello del Nero boasts its Restaurant La Torre in the ancient stables, awarded with 1 Michelin Star and open for dinner. Have a unique gastronomical experience here thanks to the tastes which the Executive Chef Giovani Luca Di Pirro transforms into dishes which are works of art. For those who, instead, want to savour traditional Tuscan dishes, the Restaurant La Torre welcomes people for lunch and dinner in the old kitchens of the Castle while in summer, it moves to the swimming pool’s edge where to enjoy a magnificent view of the estate’s vineyards.

After having revived the spirit and taste buds, it is time for leisure activities included in the offer of Castello del Nero: all the guests can dedicate some time to swimming in the hotel’s heated outdoor swimming pool but they can also use the gym and tennis courts, do yoga classes, excursions on foot, by bike or running, the new VITA Itinerary or discover the territory from other points of view, on horseback or in a hot air balloon, try out typical local products with tastings of oil and wine, cookery classes and craftwork.
