Situated in the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004, Castiglion del Bosco is a place of respect, sharing and harmony, with a legacy that encompasses the art and lifestyles of the past. The quintessential Tuscan landscape has inspired a trove of masterpieces created by country folk, architects and artists. Its strategic elevated position was appreciated by the Etruscans as early as 600 B.C., as shown by the many archaeological finds on the estate. The property stands alongside the ancient Via Francigena, a route traveled by merchants and pilgrims on their way from Canterbury to Rome, many of whom visited the Pieve San Michele from around 725 A.D.
Castiglion del Bosco’s legacy will be its dedication to preserving the art and heritage of this 900-year-old estate and this region of Italy. The estate is mindful of its role as a custodian: restoring, preserving and handing down traditions; sharing the heritage and traces of life from the past; and continuing a living story thanks to its strong historical ties. Castiglion del Bosco fosters an appreciation of art, cuisine, winemaking and traditional craftsmanship, representing the harmonious ideal of a deeply rooted, age-old Tuscan lifestyle.
It is within this setting, and as part of the estate’s philosophy, that Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco welcomes discerning guests from around the world and shares with them not only sumptuous accommodation that pays tribute to local history but also cultural insights into one of the world’s most special regions.
