The Castello, dating back to 1050, is a historical gem brimming with interest and intrigue. It has been transformed into a singularly unique hotel filled with wit, whimsy and effortless style. The outdoor pool is a thing of natural beauty. Settled in the landscape surrounded by mature trees and fragrant gardens, inviting a casual dip. It feels like wild swimming, as you skim over the ripples to the undulating views beyond with paintbrush cypresses, glimmering olive groves and ancient vineyards.
Unique Features: If the walls could talk, they’d probably tell thrilling tales of the 13th-century owner Marques del Monte, or about the Archbishop of Todi, whose coat of arms from 1610 still hangs above the entrance. Or perhaps about Count and Countess Antonio Bolza who arrived in 1984 and planted the seed for the idea of transforming and regenerating the 1,500-hectare estate.
Accommodations: Choose from spacious rooms to grand suites. The Grand Suites are housed within the castle on the first, second and third floor. The custom-designed furniture includes the four-poster Campaign bed, the drinks bar, the marble and brass double basin wash stand and the dressing table. All rooms have a bath tub, sometimes even in the bedroom. In some rooms there is a day bed, some have a fireplace and all have antique and historic pieces. The extra-spacious layout adds even more individuality to each and every one of these room.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Grugliano Suite which is all about traditional Italian elegance. You’ll notice subtle design touches throughout, from the small market trinkets above the chimney mantel, to the tiled kitchen worktop, to the spiral cast iron staircase that connects the high-ceilinged living room to the master bedroom. There are lots of places to lounge around, too, with various shady outdoor areas made for relaxing with a glass of something chilled while admiring the unequivocally Umbrian landscape.
Dining: Just-picked vegetables from the kitchen garden, olive oil from the trees, truffles from the forests and fish so fresh it might as well have just somersaulted onto your plate: at Reschio, they take their food seriously. Sourcing only the finest local ingredients, as well as carefully foraging little-known delicacies from the estate, the chef’s magic up simple but delectable menus served up in cinematic locations.
Activities: The outstanding stables, launched by the founder, Count Antonio Bolza, in 1999, is home to some of Italy’s finest, most highly skilled dressage horses. Lessons and early evening performances will introduce you to these magnificent creatures.
