Castello di Vicarello

One can rent a suite in the lovely castle hotel Castello di Vicarello, located in Tuscany, and luxuriate in the Italian countryside. Most of the guest suites are within the castle and overlook the courtyard but a few occupy their own private buildings on the property and come with kitchens.

What set this villa apart for me was the interiors and furnishings. Although rather pared down and simplistic, the interiors feature a wonderful, effortless, Italian ease, with ethnic touches to create a rich, worldly sense. The simplicity actually brings out the personality of the elements in each space. The Castello is the recipient of the 2012 Tatler 101 Best Hotels in the World.
