Castles Chianti

“At few kilometers from Gaiole in Chianti, in a lovely landscape made by junipers, rolling hills and cypresses, is located the ancient Castello di Meleto, a marvelous historical residence dated by the 11th century. Originally home of the Benedictine monks, the Castle was also the residence of the Ricasolis family, that over the years have embellished and expanded the rooms, turning the fortress into a noble villa. Today, through the perfect combination of tradition and modernity, the Castle became a luxury accommodation on one estate that covers about 1,000 hectares, of which 144 hectares of vineyards. ”

It offers luxury rooms in an atmosphere rich of history, tranquility and magic. The suites and rooms are located inside the Castle and in the Casa Canonica and each one is characterized by a charm that, combined with refined and precious details, offer an exclusive experience and maximum comfort.

Guests can access two outdoor swimming pools and can join E-bikes and trekking hiking tours.

The Castle features 3 beautiful gardens: the Herb Garden with aromatic plants, the Castle Garden where receptions and gala dinners are held, and the Villa Casanova Garden with a beautiful view of the Castle.

At your request, it will be possible to visit the wine cellars and the breeding of Cinta Senese pigs with a delicious tasting of cold cuts, wines, organic extra virgin olive oil, honey and other typical Tuscan specialties.
