Podere Castellare Bio Resort
Podere Castellare is a green, sustainable Resort, where tranquillity, wellness, innovation and traditions meet. The careful vetting of materials and the respect of the environment is at the core of every activity of the Resort. The eco-friendly character of the Resort is reflected in both the structure and the amenities, from pure natural latex mattresses to handmade soaps; the furniture was produced in one of the few green, eco certified, carpentries of Italy, using strictly natural woods, glues and paints. Heating and air conditioning are ensured by radiant panels, while breakers minimise electromagnetic waves, solar panels guarantee hot water and electricity. All meals are prepared using only local, in-season produce, coming from nearby farms and from the Restort’s own garden. Podere Castellare welcomes its guests with all the warmth of Tuscany, amongst the Chianti hills and vineyards, olive trees and forest. The Restort’s own “Peter in Florence” distillery produces the exclusive London Dry Gin, using botanicals and herbs coming directly from the garden.
The Resort welcomes guests to its Wellness Centre for a fee. The SPA is equipped with a sauna, a heated jacuzzi and a heated outdoor pool. Treatments, massages and morning yoga are available, to destress, recharge and enjoy nature.
The Hotel has 12 rooms, 2 suites and 2 apartments, all of which have been furnished and decorated according to the principles of Feng-Shui with green and eco-friendly materials.
The dishes served at the Resort Restaurant come from the Tuscan tradition, with a modern twist and special attention paid to the choice of bio, local produce: the menu changes every day, following the rhythm of the seasons and the harvest of the garden. All dietary needs are met upon request.
Podere Castellare is a short drive from Florence, Siena and Arezzo (about 40 minutes), from the famous Tuscan towns (Camaldoli, Poppi, Bibbiena) and from the forests of Vallombrosa.
