Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco: the chic retreat for families
“The best way to make children good is to make them happy” – Oscar Wilde
And at stunning Tuscan retreat Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco they know how to make children of all ages happy with engaging activities and tailor-made entertainment during the Summer season.
Any example? Golf lessons under the guidance of a golf professional, to learn basic skills and swing techniques; adventure trails in the woods; astronomy classes where the mysteries of the magical night sky unfold under the guidance of the estate’s astronomer; a mini photography workshop where a professional photographer guides young guests through the basics of photography. But also tennis lessons, painting and yoga classes where simple yoga poses are combined with engaging stories that exercise sensory and motor skills while increasing flexibility.
Located in the countryside of Montalcino, in the heart of Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is housed in one of the oldest and best preserved estates in Italy. Only 35 km from Siena and 100 km from Florence, Castiglion del Bosco is a 2,000-hectare property that Massimo and Chiara Ferragamo acquired in the Val d’Orcia Natural Park, within the Brunello di Montalcino region, then entrusting the management of hospitality to Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.
With over 800 years of history, the estate includes the ruins of a castle dating back to 1,100 AD, a medieval church and the Borgo, a historic village of rare beauty that today represents the heart of the hospitality, with suites or private villas for the guests.
The resort has two restaurants, Campo del Drago and the Osteria La Canonica with traditional Tuscan and Italian dishes and, under the guidance of Executive Chef Enrico Figliuolo, an organic vegetable garden and cooking school for adults and kids.
The lush gardens around the property and the heated panoramic pool encourage family relaxation and complete the dreamlike atmosphere of this truly unique and utterly chic Tuscan retreat.
