Located 30 minutes from Siena, Italy, Castiglion del Bosco is a redevelopment and reuse project on a grand scale. Situated on 4,500 acres, the property has all of the characteristics and features of the quintessential Tuscan landscape; country lanes bordered by rows of Italian Cyprus, rolling hills dotted with award winning grapes, oak forests populated by wild boar, picturesque farmhouses with intimate private gardens, and a ‘core’ of original building structures that include castle ruins from the 1100’s and a chapel with restored frescoes by Pietro Lorenzetti dating back to the early 1300’s. Within this culturally and historically significant framework, a boutique hotel, day spa, modern winery, golf course, and a series of farmhouse villas have been restored and/ or built, resulting in an authentic world class luxury destination where guests can be as active or idle as they desire. Castiglion del Bosco diversions include, but are not limited to, cooking classes, hunting, hiking, biking, horseback riding, lawn bowls, spa activities, wine tasting, golf, pool lounging, and local day trip excursions to nearby points of interest such as Siena and Florence.
The beginning phases of design and development at Castiglion del Bosco were contracted with EDSA. Subsequent phases were contracted with Florence, Italy based landscape architect Philip Adiutori.
