Above ancient vineyards, you'll find a place where wellness is the heart and soul on a Tuscan hilltop. Hidden among the rolling hills of Tuscany lies COMO Castello Del Nero — in easy driving distance of the Renaissance cities of Florence and Siena.
COMO Castello Del Nero is an exceptional 740-acre historic estate in Italy's world-famous Chianti wine region. The castle's landmark terracotta flooring, fresco walls and vaulted ceilings remain untouched, while Milanese interior designer, Paola Navone, has introduced light and a modern 'COMO' aesthetic.
Soak up long summer days in the Chianti sunshine with truffle hunting, wine tasting and Michelin-starred dining. It is the perfect destination to forget all your tensions, enjoy al fresco lunches on the panoramic terrace, and long relaxing walks in this peerless scenery.
