Castello di Vicarello (Tuscany), Italy

Like something out of a fairytale, Castello di Vicarello rises up from the top of a picture perfect hillside, offering unparalleled views of all the beauty Tuscany has to offer.

This former castle is decorated to a high standard throughout and the attention to detail is what you’d expect from a resort of this calibre. Guests can enjoy evening feasts by the roaring fireplace in the winner, or alfresco on the hillside during the summer.

For those who love the outdoors, this is the perfect escape. Thousands of native flowers bloom in the hotel’s sprawling gardens, and the beautiful infinity pool is the perfect way to cool off from the summer heat.
