Enjoy luxury, relaxation, and authentic Tuscan cuisine on this 2-night gourmet package. Your luxurious home-from-home for 2 nights is Castello di Vicarello - an enchanting medieval castle set in a unique location in the heart of the Maremma region.
The food is prepared in the castle’s historic kitchen, which draws much of its produce from the estate's organic garden, vineyards and olive groves, all of which sit within the enchanting grounds.
Castello di Vicarello has had 900 years to cultivate its air of rustic majesty, so the fact that honey-coloured buildings and gardens look like they’ve sprung from the canvas of an Italian master is of little surprise.
Castello di Vicarello offers a choice of nine creatively appointed suites, and you will be staying in one of the top suites for 2 nights. With two swimming pools (one set amongst an olive grove; the other perched on a mountainside), two kitchen gardens, and exquisite terraces surrounded by 40 hectares of vineyards and olive groves you are sure to enjoy a perfect stay.
The characterful yet contemporary design, family-run castle retreat captures the charm of a bygone era, carefully fused with modern inﬂuences. The head chef and team create wholesome Italian cuisine, using generations-old recipes and ingredients from the organic gardens and local farmers produce.
During your stay, you will have the opportunity to discover the distinct flavours of Tuscany and learn the age-old secrets of authentic Tuscan cuisine thanks to a chef who has a great passion for natural, home-grown ingredients. Following family recipes from Aurora’s published cookbook, "My Tuscan Kitchen", you will master dishes like papa al pomodoro, ravioli maremmani, and tiramisu to impress your guests at your next dinner party.
After the cooking class, enjoy lunch in the Castle's courtyard tasting your dishes!
