Occupying a historic twelfth century castle, surrounded by 740 acres of rolling hills, ancient olive trees, and rows of vineyards in the Chianti region of Italy, sits COMO Castello Del Nero.
There’s an opulence of frescoed walls, terracotta flooring and vaulted ceilings, and a light dusting of the acclaimed COMO aesthetic. Castello Del Nero is a serene, contemporary retreat in keeping with the COMO brand, but happily assimilating rich Italian heritage.
Ideal for couples, families or wellness-seekers, the hotel has rooms and suites within the castle and grounds, many overlooking the lake and rolling hills. Facilities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, a hiking trail, bikes for guests to use and riding available. We also recommend taking a day trip to Siena and Florence, both just 30 minutes away and full of Italian life, heart-soaring architecture and superb art galleries.
Of course, no hotel in Italy would be complete without a huge emphasis on food. At Castello, COMO’s commitment to local produce is as strong as ever, and the estate has its own beehives, vineyards, olive oil and a kitchen garden. The menu adds a lighter touch to Tuscan classics, alongside COMO signature dishes. And being in the Chianti region, you’re virtually encouraged to pair bold red wines with your Italian dishes, though to really know your grapes, we recommend a wine tasting tour with COMO’s sommelier.
As with all COMO properties, the focus on wellness is significant. At the COMO Shambhala Wellness retreat, guests can enjoy the spa by day or join a longer therapeutic wellness programme. Take a deep tissue massage or a Guinot facial and experience the ice room, sauna, steam room and indoor pool.
At Castello Del Nero, you’re not only in touching distance of some of the world’s most famous vineyards and beautiful cities, you’ve all the historic charms of an Italian castle, encased in the enduring excellence of a COMO hotel.
