Average time to visit
The Mediterranean climate makes Tuscany a year round destination. It is important to remember that the main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of September with July and August being peak months. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is usually good, prices lower and there are "fewer" tourists. Many have also discovered the advantages of visiting during the "low season" (late autumn and early spring) as the reduced number of tourists is visible.
To start planning your vacation to Castello di Reschio
Located just within the Umbrian border, Castello di Reschio, a recently-renovated grand estate, offers guests a slice of timeless Italy. Find yourself in the Tuscan hills by Andalusian horseback, indulge in homemade produce, or simply unwind by the pool.
Castello di Reschio is located just within the Umbrian borderline, grazing the Tuscan hills. Dating back to 1050, this recently-renovated castle is a historical marvel, and has been elegantly yet mindfully transformed into a spectacular luxury hotel, exuding effortless style.
The castle plays host to a collection of sophisticated rooms and suites, each one unique with bespoke furniture, antique ornaments and locally-crafted textiles. No room at Castello di Reschio is alike owing to the original structure and design of the building. As well as the in-castle rooms and suites, the property also boasts a collection of 10 magnificent private houses which are dotted across the estate. Each of the villas are perfectly positioned, allowing for spectacular, undisturbed views across the hillside.
The property prides itself on providing guests with decadent dishes, lovingly created by the chef using locally-sourced and in-season ingredients, many of which are from the estate itself. Here guests can expect olive oil from the surrounding trees, truffles from the forest, and vegetables just-picked from the kitchen garden. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
There's a superb choice of restaurants and bars to choose from at Castello di Reschio, including Ristorante Alle Scuderie, which exudes old-world Italian glamour, and serves up traditional pizzas straight from the outdoor oven. Located in the center of the restaurant, guests will stumble upon Bar Centrale, the perfect place to enjoy an end-of-the-day Negroni.
Offering spectacular views across the hillside, Ristorante Al Castello plates up ever-tempting Italian classics, accompanied by magnificent sunsets in the summer. For something lighter - or sweeter - the Palm Court Bar is where guests can kick back and relax with an icy drink, book from the library, and a well-earned slice of cake from the tea trolley. However, if the poolside calls, make sure to visit Il Torrino, the poolside bar, where juices are freshly-squeezed, paninis are hot off the grill, and cocktails are shaken, not stirred.
The outdoor swimming pool is certainly a real draw for guests staying at Castello di Reschio, situated just outside the castle walls, with tall umbrella pines perfectly shading the deck, this is the place to relax. Elsewhere, guests can unwind at The Bathhouse, where hammams, saunas and a multitude of indulgent treatments are all on offer. A private spa is also available for those wishing for something more exclusive.
Whilst relaxation is very much accessible at Castello di Reschio, the property also offers a spectacular selection of unique experiences to keep guests busy. For experienced horse-riders, or equally those looking to learn, the estate features an outstanding stable, home to some of the country's finest Andalusian horses. Other experiences include cooking lessons and truffle hunting; clay pigeon shooting; and fishing. High quality bikes are available for guest use, as well as Astroturf courts for keen tennis players.
Castello di Reschio is made up of a collection of magnificently designed rooms and suites located within the walls of the historical castle, which are furnished with hand-picked antiques, locally-crafted textiles, and beautifully crafted oil paintings.
The property also boasts a collection of 10 fabulous luxury private villas - formerly farmhouses but meticulously restored by the Bolza family - which are dotted around the estate. Each of the villas are self-catered, but private chefs and luxury food boxes can easily be arranged by the on site team; and there is also a dedicated housekeeper at each house.
All of the rooms and villas are completely unique in their style and design, so make sure to speak with your Travel Consultant to establish which one is best-suited for your stay.
Children are more than welcome at Castello di Reschio, making it a fabulous destination for families. The estate team will be ready and eager to assist with riding and tennis lessons, cooking classes, or even wild hiking. There is also an outdoor play area and, with two day's notice, babysitting can be arranged.
For guests residing in one of the private villas, a housekeeper is made available throughout your stay. For guests wishing for a relaxed evening with pizzas straight out of the oven, or a more formal candlelit Umbrian feast, then a private chef can be arranged. Food delivery services are also on offer, with boxes bundled with prosciutto, fresh pasta, and bottles of wine from the estate, delivered straight to your private kitchen.
Castello di Reschio is graced with two exquisite restaurants, as well as three onsite bars, offering guests plenty of choice and variety. Ristorante Alle Scuderie and Ristorante Al Castell serve up traditional Umbrian dishes, whilst Bar Centrale is the place to head to for a tempting Negroni.
Make your way to Palm Court Bar when you're in need of a sweet treat or icy drink - this glass-ceilinged coutryard is the perfect place for a mid-morning bite. However, if the poolside where you're headed, you're in for a treat at the chic pool bar, Il Torrino, where paninis are made on the spot, and juices are freshly squeezed.
The pool itself is a fabulous affair. Located just beside the castle walls, it spectacularly mirrors the history of the ramparts, and offers guests the perfect place to relax and unwind. As well as Il Torrino, there are also showers and changing rooms available beneath the deck, as well as plenty of front-row seats on the decking itself.
For guests in need of indulgence, there's no better place than The Bathhouse. Previously the castle's ancient wine cellar, the Bathhouse has been lovingly transformed into a relaxing retreat, offering a multitude of treatment, as well as spa, sauna and hammam facilities. For those wishing for more privacy, the Private Spa can host up to six people and features two conversation baths, two massage beds, a tepidarium and private changing rooms and steam shower.
Castello di Reschio features a spectacular onsite stable and is home to some of the country's finest Andalusian horses. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, wanting to join for a mid-morning hack through the hillside or learn the art of dressage, then this is the place to do so. Elsewhere on the estate, cooking classes are made available where you'll learn the art of creating handmade pasta and freshly made sauces; or why not forage for your food, or go in search of truffles. For active guests, there are two tennis courts to take advantage of, as well as high quality bikes and electric bikes, clay pigeon shooting and fishing. Owing to its location in the Umbrian hillside, there are plenty of spectacular walks and hiking trails to explore, where you may come across a roe deer or two.
