Castle come alive: Castiglion del Bosco

Clock tower built 12th century graces the hotel's borgo village

Around a ruined castle a medieval village with church and clock tower has become a five star plus hotel with 23 suites and 9 villas. Lovingly renovated in Tuscan style, and rich with details by Florentine artisans, Castiglion del Bosco is now a quiet haven and hideaway for those who can afford it. After our journey over Val d’Orcia we were guests for one night. I felt I could stay there forever.

The old grey stone seems to sleep in the hot July sun in the quiet and empty “borgo street” and piazza. Flowers bloom in the garden, cicadas pipe and lizards dart. The terrace of our CdB suite is about 120 sqm, our suite enormous and our views haunting. We climb to the castle ruin and watch the sun go down. Later we sit quite alone by the infinity pool in the twilight, soothed in the balmy air.

More images tomorrow. Most of these are with my iPhone, the better ones by Per-Olov Broddeson with a “system camera”.
