Tavarnelle Val di Pesa

Castello del Nero


7 Strada Spicciano,
Tavarnelle Val di Pesa,


More than 700 acres of rolling hills, olive groves, and grape vines surround Castello del Nero, a Tuscan castle just outside of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, a charming Italian village south of Florence. Built in the 12th century by the del Nero family, the estate references its noble heritage in all 50 rooms, each carefully restored and many with original frescoes of landscapes and Florentine flowers. Cashmere blankets and goose-down duvets are cozy in-room touches, but most guests pass the days elsewhere on the property, exploring the countryside on horseback, relaxing at the spa, or cooking with chef Giovanni Luca di Pirro during on-site Tuscan-cuisine cooking classes.
