Rosewood to manage famed Tuscan resort

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed to manage Castiglion del Bosco, the bucolic Italian resort located in Montalcino, Tuscany.  Founded by Massimo Ferragamo, the resort is set within one of the oldest and best-preserved estates in Italy and is located in the heart of Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The resort now bears the name Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.

Castiglion del Bosco is an 800-year-old estate comprising the ruins of a castle, a medieval church, and the Borgo, a village that was once an important farming and social hub. The Borgo now forms the heart of the resort and 23 suites are housed within its buildings. The resort also offers 10 villas, which have been created from restored farmhouses and feature antique furniture, artisanal pieces and modern comforts.

This announcement comes as Rosewood, which manages 19 luxury properties in 10 countries, has embarked upon an ambitious global expansion with a particular focus on Europe and Asia.  Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is the third Rosewood property in Europe and follows Rosewood London, which opened in October 2013 and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris which will reopen following a complete restoration. 

Rosewood’s most recent addition is Rosewood Beijing, which opened its doors in October 2014 as the first China property for Rosewood.
