Wine Tours
As this is a land notorious for the production of DOC and DOCG wines known all over the world, one of the activities that we recommend is a tour of the local producers, such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. We advise you to book this in advance directly from the castle. Visits can be personalized according to your taste and expertise. Wine experts will guide and assist you throughout the itinerary.
 
Olive Oil Tours
Another very important production in this area is olive oil. We suggest a visit to a local olive mill, "Fonte di Foiano" which is located in the characteristic medieval town of Bolgheri. Here you can discover the fascinating process of oil production and savor it directly from the source. This tour is often combined with wine tours for a day filled with good food and natural products that Tuscany exports worldwide, enriching the cuisines of diverse cultures.
 
Wellnes Centre
Dive into the past when the Etruscans treated themselves to a bath and massage in this unique and fascinating atmosphere where today you can experience harmony and relaxation. Discover the reinvigorating effects of the natural hot springs (36C) at Il Calidario, just a short distance from the Castle. The "Thermarium" facilities offer you relaxing massages such as Ayurvada, Shiatsu and foot and palm reflex treatments.
 
Boat Trips
Boat trips are a perfect way to discover the beautiful Tuscan islands of Elba, Giglio and Giannutri. The stunning coastline and crystal clear sea offers a day of total relaxation.
 
Cooking Lessons
We recommend cooking demonstrations for groups. Typical Tuscan dishes are prepared to exalt the flavor and aroma of high quality ingredients. The lessons are held in the kitchen of the castle.
 
Town & City Tours
For those who are passionate about culture, art, and history, we suggest guided visits to the famous cities of Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Firenze, Volterra and San Gimignano. We also recommend visiting the surrounding medieval towns of Massa Marittima, Populonia and Baratti, Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. Rich in history and traditions, you can still feel the magic of the past that has made Tuscany the "Pearl of Italy".
 
Golf & Tennis
For those who enjoy tennis, there is a sports center with tennis courts near the castle. For golf lovers, just 30 minutes away is "Il Pelagone" golf club, surrounded by olive trees and rows of cypresses. It has the international standard 18 hole course, golf school, large driving range and two putting greens. Perfect for professionals and beginners alike. Another nearby renown golf club is the "Punta Ala" club.
 
Palio di Siena
Siena's "Palio delle Contrade" is amongst the most heartfelt festivals in Italy. Here religious and social elements are fused together in a fascinating spectacle of historical and cultural traditions, culminating in a final horse race in "Piazza del Campo", where pride and competitive spirit between the "Contrade" are exalted. This tradition goes back to the XI century, and today "Il Palio" is held twice a year on July 2 and on August 16.
 
Horse Rides
If you love nature, a 3 to 6 hour horseback ride is an memorable way to discover hidden treasures. This tour can be arranged inside one of the most important fauna centers of the Maremma, the "Parco dell' Uccellina". This is the perfect choice for appreciating the landscape and culture of Italy, while enjoying a good ride over the characteristic cypress-lined hills, landmarks the "Butteri Maremmani" (Tuscan cowboys) used as reference points on their journeys.
