Guests seeking the ultimate party will love the Palio Package, which includes Palio viewing in a private apartment overlooking the majestic Piazza del Campo, a Ferrari back roads adventure, hot-air balloon ride over Tuscany and much more.

On a more local level, just 10 minutes’ drive from Castello di Casole, the charming hilltop town of Casole d’Elsa will host its own Palio horse race. Taking place on Sunday, July 14th, the competition is preceded by a pageant in medieval costumes. In each of the six contrade, or town quarters, celebrations spill into the streets for a weekend of dancing, eating and drinking with local villages participating.



Originally the estate’s wine cellar, Essere Spa, meaning To Be in Italian, offers a serene setting within one of the most dramatic spaces at the hotel. Barrel-vaulted ceilings and restored stone walls create a theatrical setting accentuated by long views across an expansive valley.
