Castello del Nero Hotel & Spa, Tuscany

The Castello del Nero Hotel & Spa is a carefully restored 12th century castle located within striking distance of Florence and Siena. Individually decorated rooms and frescoed suites feature breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills.

This private estate with its 50 rooms is a delight. The original frescoes, vaulted ceilings and fireplaces are located in common areas and guest rooms alike, exuding the charm and history of the noble estate it once was. 

Take the complimentary shuttle service between Florence or Siena for exploring on your own or walk into Tavernelle to experience local life. La Torre Gourmand Restaurant, awarded with one Michelin star makes the most of the local produce and La Taverna in the castles kitchen is the place for Tuscan grills or on its terrace in the summer. Como Shambhala Retreat at Como Castello del Nero brings the Tuscan hills to your doorstep with the outdoor vitality pool and the outdoor heated swimming pool with immaculate lawns has the best views over the valley. Indulge on the wine and olive oil made on estate that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
