On a Tuscan hilltop, above ancient vineyards, you’ll find a place where wellness is the heart and soul. 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 the world-famous Chianti wine region of Italy. The castle’s historic terracotta flooring, fresco walls and vaulted ceilings remain untouched, while Milanese interior designer, Paola Navone, has introduced light and modern ‘COMO’ aesthetic.
