Castello di Vicarello
Grosseto, Italy
Web Site: www.castellodivicarello.it

As more and more Italians reclaim family property in the countryside or buy and restore their own abandoned castles, people such as the Baccheschi family are moving into more affordable, lesser-known areas. They left behind a successful fashion business to come to this quiet southern part of Tuscany where they bought the ruins of a 13th-century stone castle/ex-convent and have completed putting its pieces back together to form their own private residence and rooms for guests.

The houses and grounds are situated a few hundred meters from the castle, in a beautiful environment and in absolute privacy. The location offers a breath taking panorama of the surrounding woodland, from Mount Amiata to the Tirrenian sea.

Two adjacent stunning stone guesthouses are available, plus three suites in the main castle. The smaller house, I Sassi, has one bedroom, a large bathroom, and glassed-in living room taking in the sumptuous view of virgin territory. La Chiesina has a kitchen and spacious living room with intarsia parquet flooring, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. They are appointed sophisticatedly with family antiques and colonial pieces from Indonesia, and are worthy of an article in Architectural Digest. The suites, decorated in the same vein, share a large kitchen and living room.

The travertine swimming pool hangs on the edge of the manicured garden, which drops down into untamed landscapes.
