Castello di Vicarello is a luxury castle retreat, which lies in the heart of the Maremma region of Tuscany, where ancient traditions have survived and Tuscan culture is preserved.
This 900-year-old castle was an abandoned ruin, until its transformation into an exclusive country residence in the early 2000's. It was the mysterious Etruscans who first discovered Maremma, and only after several centuries the Romans arrived and constructed a spa on the site of their ancient ruins, upon which in 1112, the present Castello di Vicarello was built.
Vicarello is a place where the eye is continually lost in the undulating green of the countryside, all the way down to the blue sea. Castello di Vicarello is a charming residence where you can discover time, silence and history, as every path, every brick, every wall tells a story.
The Castello has been a holiday home of Aurora and Carlo Baccheschi Berti since 1978. They converted an outbuilding (Villa Chiesna, now one of the suites); however, the tower of the castle remained a ruin until they turned it into a hotel retreat for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. After the restoration, a true labor of love, they filled the property with trinkets and treasures, as well as adding two ozone-treated pools and a spa.
Castello di Vicarello is perfect for: a romantic honeymoon, a gastronomical journey or hunting experience, hiking, seaside towns, exploring medieval cities or simply relaxing and revitalizing.
