A cypress-lined road leads to the rolling 4,200-acre Tuscan estate with a castle that dates back to the 10th century. Now owned by Timber Resorts, it was formerly the home of film director Luchino Visconti and an entertainment center for countless Hollywood luminaries. The 41 rustic-luxe suites incorporate oil paintings, local antiques, wood-beamed ceilings, and reclaimed terracotta. And Essere Spa, originally the estate’s wine cellar, features seven treatment rooms and massages incorporating orange and basil essential oils.

Room to Book:

Available for rent on a weekly basis, the Tuscan Farmhouses (for eight to 12 people) are set among the vineyards and built of stones, bricks, and terracotta found on the estate. Modern amenities include spacious kitchens and glass-tiled infinity pools.

Insider Tip:

Special services include handmade picnic basket lunches, art and ceramic classes, and wildlife tours.
