Centered around the courtyard of the castle, the 18 Main Villa Suites offer a refined and sophisticated style and feel at the heart of the Castello di Casole estate. All of these junior and one-bedroom suites have a view of the interior courtyard or surrounding countryside, while a rich color palette of terra cotta, soothing blue and cypress green brings the feel of Tuscany indoors. Wood-beamed ceilings and plastered wall finishes frame each of the suites, which are appointed with local antiques, plush sofas and chairs covered in vibrant Italian fabrics, and custom cabinetry and tables made by local craftsmen. Unique accessories sourced from local vendors accent the suites along with original oil paintings and traditional photographs. Bathrooms are spacious and luxurious, featuring Carrara marble, separate shower and tub, classic bath fittings and antiqued mirrors. Some Main Villa Suites have the possibility to connect to a second suite to accommodate larger parties and families.
Located adjacent to the historic chapel, the Casa del Prete Suites were the estate’s original priest quarters, and their restoration was intended to maintain their rustic feel. Exposed stone walls lend an air of authenticity and simplicity to these fine suites, which are otherwise similar to the Main Villa Suites in color and furnishing. A soothing palette of terra cotta, blue and green complements vibrant Italian fabrics, handmade cabinets and furniture, and unique local accessories, while bathrooms are relaxing retreats awash in Carrara marble and mosaic flooring with separate shower and tub. Take your place in the estate’s rich history by staying in the Casa del Prete Suites.
The Tinaia Suites offer a rustic feel that reflects their richly historic setting as the former agricultural house of the Castello di Casole estate. Located above the spa, to the south of the main hotel, these junior suites and one-bedroom suites feature ample exposed stonework, creating a relaxed and authentic atmosphere in the grand tradition of a Tuscan country estate. Fine details throughout include wood-beamed ceilings, locally made tables and cabinets, vibrant Italian fabrics and authentic Italian antiques. The majority of these junior and one-bedroom suites have a view of the surrounding countryside.
The Limonaia Suites are beautiful 2-story Italian hotel suites with a private garden patio, the perfect place for a relaxing getaway in Tuscany. Just a few steps from the main hotel, their setting is appealingly centralized and noticeably private.

Soaring windows fill the rooms with natural light, creating a seamless transition to the enchanting private gardens just outside – the perfect place to enjoy Tuscany’s seasonal beauty. Compelling interior details include original artwork, Tuscan antiques, distressed metal railings and custom designed beds. Each of these remarkable suites has a spacious modern bathroom featuring contemporary fixtures, separate shower and tub, Italian travertine and mosaic, and large painted shutters for absolute privacy.
Set privately away, a short stroll to the main hotel through a cypress-lined path, the Oliveto Suites are a stylish and contemporary sanctuary overlooking the estate’s treasured vineyards and olive groves, with dramatic views across the valley to Mensano or Casole d’Elsa. The architecture of these nine suites creates a feeling more like a private apartment than a hotel suite, with spacious interiors and generous outdoor living spaces to enjoy throughout any season. An open floor plan feels comfortably elegant thanks to travertine flooring throughout and several pieces of custom-made furniture, which represent works from leading artisans. Guests may be most drawn to the large private terraces, which invite delightful afternoons of reading in the sun, al fresco drinks and dining under the star-filled sky.
The Bargagli Penthouse is the ultimate residence in what is already the most special place on the estate. Two expansive stories open to a spacious private terrace with captivating views of the ever-changing pastoral landscape.

Three years in planning and design, every inch, every surface has been exhaustively considered to create spaces that reward the eye, the touch and the spirit. The vernacular is classic Italian punctuated with a sophisticated contemporary note – a regal formality softened by country antiques and fabrics. An ornamental stove contrasts with sleek lined cabinetry and an artisan’s Carrara and Emperador marble vanity reflects a historic tapestry. The Penthouse is a reflection of all that is Castello di Casole, a living work of art.
Privately situated around a surrounding forest, quietly tucked at the edge of a vineyard, Casale Escaiole is one of the most secluded Farmhouses on the Castello di Casole estate. To the south are vineyards and sweeping views to the bell towers of Radicondoli. The hilltown of Mensano is a comfortable stroll. Access is through a quarter-mile-long country lane, so you can be sure you’ll enjoy the very private setting of this beautiful villa. Casale Escaiole is comprised of a main building, guest residence and private infinity-edged pool that jets off into the forest.
The first of the restored Farmhouses along the country road leading to the Castello, Casale La Casa is a beautiful villa rental opportunity set among the Tuscan vineyards. A stately lane leads to the main residence which is organized around a long, open living area with exposed stone walls subtly sectioned off by arched doorways and windows. It is airy and open, yet very intimate. The main residence is complemented by two beautiful guest homes, which share a common courtyard leading to the infinity-edge pool whose ledge disappears off the hilltop over the vineyards below. With views in every direction, especially over rolling countryside to the southeast, this neighbor to the Castello hotel is surely one of the great homes in all of Tuscany.
A remarkable Tuscan farmhouse available for vacation rentals, Casale San Giuseppe reveals itself as you drive up the long road onto the Castello di Casole estate. The farmhouse sits at the end of a long driveway off to the north of the hotel, flanked by olive trees and a sweeping meadow. The home is nestled into the forest, but the views are unobstructed and dramatic. A short walk will take you to dining, the spa and fitness center. This alluring proximity to the hotel makes Casale San Giuseppe a magnificent villa in every season.
Steps from the epic castle and modern day Hotel Castello di Casole , Villa Scuola is an intimate grouping of three restored villas available for vacation rental. Once the school where the children of lords and nobles learned the ways of the world, today Villa Scuola, the “old school,” is a lesson in the delightful confluence of history, art and architecture.
Villa Scuola is for those who envision an idyllic private life in the countryside, made all the more perfect because the luxuries and energy of a five-star hotel just steps away. Proximity affords both convenience and intimacy – attentive housekeeping and room service. Interiors are rich, kitchens are studies in tradition and baths are punctuated with a contemporary flair. This is the cozy country life, and the perfect Tuscan villa vacation rental.
Villa Scuola features two bedrooms, two baths and private plunge pool.
Casale Poggio alla Corona is an artful recreation of a classic Tuscan farmhouse, one with traditional roots and a contemporary elegance. The architecture is open and sunlit with floor-to-ceiling glass walls allowing for views out and across the striking glass-tiled infinity-edged pool. Surrounded on three sides by terraces for sunning and lounging, the view is extraordinary with lines of Italian cypress, mature vineyards and the majestic Castello to the east resting atop the highest hilltop on the estate.
All four spacious bedroom suites are housed in a single residence, bringing family and friends closer together. The living and relaxation spaces are expansive, with a central kitchen and great room that opens to the outdoor forno and pergola for outdoor dining, and fire pit for late night gatherings. It’s a decidedly modern interpretation of the Italian tradition that makes hearth and dining the heart of the gathering experience.
Of all the farmhouses for rental at Castello di Casole, Casale San Regolo is among the most spacious, comfortably accommodating for as many as twelve family members and friends. It includes a main residence and two regal guest residences at the crest of a long circular drive. Olive groves border the home on two sides, and beyond the olives, the vineyards begin. The views are extraordinary, especially those seen over the ledge of the infinity-edge pool as the sun slips below the horizon. A short stroll up the road and through the cypress-lined lane is the Castello hotel.
The forno, or wood-oven, set in the middle of the courtyard is the perfect place to gather for dinner and watch the sun disappear into the hillside. Each guest residence is complete with master suite, bathroom and sitting area and one residence offers a unique outdoor shower for those wanting to enjoy the Tuscan outdoors.
Casale San Regolo is a five bedroom, five and one half bath home with a private infinity-edged pool. The residence is large, and comfortably accommodates 10-12 family members and friends.
Casale Vemignano commands one of the estate’s most prominent hilltops, offering unobstructed vistas in every direction, from the Castello hotel to Casole d’Elsa, Mensano, even to San Gimignano in the distance. The residential compound of three restored buildings and grounds command an expansive grassy plateau above olive orchards that completely surround the property.
The primary residence is organized around a long, open living area with exposed stone walls subtly sectioned off by arched doorways and windows. Magnificent hardwood doors open onto the pergola for evening dining. The original forno is adjacent to create a warm and intimate dining experience. Two very large master suites on the second floor combined with two large outer sitting rooms offer each suite complete privacy and stunning views of the countryside.
The two guest residences, with the most dramatic bathrooms on the estate, are among the most romantic in all of Tuscany. In a property where there is astonishing architecture at every turn, perhaps most memorable is the dazzling glass tiled infinity pool soaring off one edge of the property into the Tuscan hills.
Casale Vemignano is a four bedroom, four and one half bath home with a private infinity-edged pool. The residence is large, and comfortably accommodates 8-10 family members and friends.
