Castello di Casole
Just 45 minutes outside Florence in an ancient Etruscan town, the 41-suite Castello di Casole is nestled among 4,200 acres of vineyards, olive groves, and forests. Rugged stone walls and wood-beamed ceilings, original terra cotta floor tiles, and antique accessories lend an Old World feel to a classic Grand Tour destination. There's even a 10th-century castle on the grounds.
