Ladies and gentlemen, I think I just fell in love. And you may very well experience the same feeling when you check out this heart-stopping villa/resort overlooking the hills of Tuscany. It’s the Castello di Reschio and for $23,000-$30,000/week (depending on the season) you and 11 of your best friends are free to temporarily call it your home. Here’s a description of the estate from their website:
Castello di Reschio is a very private estate that covers 2,700 acres of Umbrian countryside on the border with Tuscany, Italy. This is the green heart of Italy, a land of rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and woods of oak and chestnut, where little has changed since St Francis of Assisi preached here in the Middle Ages. Scattered around this unspoilt landscape are 50 farmhouses that seem as ancient as the hills. To date a dozen or so have been beautifully restored for clients to create private houses, tailored to individual tastes in a style and quality of finish that meets the highest international standards. Each home is unique and has been created and furnished by the owners of Castello di Reschio, Count Antonio Bolza and two generations of his family who live in the 11th century Castello and run this magnificent estate. Integral to Reschio is a unique combination of world class service and facilities, privacy, security and nature at it’s most tranquil. The 5-STAR concierge service available to all owners through the Estate Management Company includes personal drivers, daily maid service, food delivery and cooking services. Residents can enjoy classic Umbrian food in the delightful setting of the Osteria, horse-riding, mountain biking and country walks on the estate and floodlit tennis. Castello di Reschio is centrally placed to enjoy the highlights of Umbria and Tuscany and is only 20 minutes from Cortona or half an hour from the galleries, churches, opera, film and jazz festivals or theatres in Umbria’s capital city, Perugia. Florence and Rome are within two hours drive, and Siena, Arezzo, Assisi, Todi and Orvieto are all close by.
