Venue Features
The Scene:
As you enter the grounds of Castello di Vicarello you are taken into a fairy tale. green fields, rolling hills, bushes with thousand of white roses, a breathtaking view that extends until the sea coastline. no sounds except the songs of the birds.
Design:
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 Tuscan sea. Castello di Vicarello is a charming residence in which to 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 Chiesina, 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. Built in 1112, Castello di Vicarello has been renovated into a sophisticated and modern retreat, offering every comfort and exclusive amenity in a natural surrounding.

The careful restoration of the castle incorporated red brick and old stone work, the original wood beams and terracotta tiling to their best effect, while the interior’s furnishing is born out of a marriage between antique furniture and frescoes, modern design and decorative elements garnered from every corner of the globe. The garden is a central component in the architectural restoration work- Despite being well maintained, there is no clear demarcation where the garden ends and the natural vegetation of the reserve begins. The result is dramatic yet offers harmony and balance - a multitude of scented flowers, centuries-old olive trees and lush lavender and jasmine complete the scenery, leaving space for two swimming pools and the exclusive SPA, sensitively integrated into the surroundings.
Standout Venue Features:
All guests are provided with free access to the spa facilities, sauna and steam room. We offer daily complimentry soft drinks. All our staff is here to please our guests. Our kitchen is the real heart of the Castello and our guests are welcome any moment to see what we are preparing. Cooking classes are available.
Extra Perks:
Outside there is no electric lights, just lanterns and candles that are lit every night. Many romantic corners, sitting areas, two wonderful swimming pools, an outside tub at the spa, wonderful gardens and landscape that arrive till the sea line.
