La dolce vita

Live out your Italian dreams with Belmond's Grand Tour of Italy and their newest property in Tuscany!


Just a few weeks ago, we had a lovely client event here in Little Rock with our friends at Belmond, and Cindy Holloway passed on some exciting news: Belmond has added a new property to their portfolio, Belmond Castello di Casole in Tuscany!

Surrounded by a 4,200-acre private estate of rolling hills, sweeping valleys, vineyards, and olive groves, this hotel is set in a beautifully resorted 10th-century castle. Originally owned by the noble Bargagli family of Siena, and one of the largest private estates in Italy, it's only an hour from Florence and 30 minutes from Siena, ideally placed for exploring Tuscany's most captivating sights. Learn more about this historic property here.

Plus, the property combines perfectly with Belmond's Grand Tour of Italy, Spain, and Portugal. With this program, you can design your own grand tour over seven nights, staying at two Belmond properties minimum (but you could potentially stay in all of them by adding additional nights).

Along with Belmond Castello di Casole in Tuscany, here are the other properties you can combine to create the Grand Tour:


Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice

Belmond Villa San Michele in Florence

Belmond Hotel Splendido in Portofino

Belmond Hotel Caruso on the Amalfi Coast

Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo in Taormina

Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea in Taormina Mare

Belmond La Residencia in Mallorca (Spain)

Belmond Reid's Palace in Madeira (Portugal)

Blackout dates apply, and rates vary based on dates and room type, but 2018 rates start at4130 EUR (plus tax) per couple. Seven nights not enough? You can add additional nights starting at 830 EUR (plus tax) per couple, depending on room type. 2019 rates and dates should be available soon!
