About Castello di Vicarello
A family-owned castle estate in the heart of Tuscany’s wild Maremma countryside, Castello di Vicarello is surrounded by 40 hectares of stunning gardens, organic vineyards, olive groves and farmland. The estate captures the essence of contemporary luxury, offering total seclusion, award-winning accommodation and exceptional cuisine. Organic ingredients are nurtured in the kitchen gardens and incorporated into wonderful, authentic Tuscan dishes.
Sensitively restored and elegantly decorated, the nine suites can comfortably accommodate up to 22 guests, and feature original stone and brick walls, tastefully curated antique and modern furniture, with an oriental touch stemming from the Baccheschi Berti family’s years spent in Indonesia.

Why we love it…
Encircled by the dreamy, rolling hills of Tuscany, this ancient castle is as charming as it gets. It’s romantic views and cosy rooms conjure a feeling of warmth and authenticity; its grounds the perfect backdrop for an array of festivities, from languid lunches to chic, evening soirees.
For the couple…
Looking for a down-to-earth wedding venue in the heart of Tuscany boasting incredible views, organically grown food & wine, and that authentic Italian charm.
Host your wedding in the garden beneath an arbor of interwoven blooms. For aperitivo hour, head to the luscious poolside area and sip cocktails overlooking the valley. As dusk falls, enjoy a suave reception dinner under the stars. Dress long tables in seasonal florals dotted between glinting candelabras, votives and elegant glassware – but be mindful not to over-style the tablescape. There’s poetry in the imperfect.
