Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco

With a focus on the land, the wine and the people, Castiglion del Bosco demonstrates a commitment to restore and respect sustainable traditions in the region. The design re-imagines a once neglected 800 year old estate exemplifying what can be done with a historically significant landscape while improving economic environmental, and cultural conditions. The estate sits within a nature preserve and has the distinction of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient charm of the compound is depicted by remnants of a 12th century castle fortress, ruins of a Gothic chapel, a circular Etruscan stronghold, the Scuderie (former stables) and the church of San Michele Arcangelo. Amongst the rolling vineyards, meadows, forests, and olive groves are a boutique hotel with 23 suites and nine villas replete with a spa, culinary school, and winery.

EDSA helped restore the estate with a focus on the land, its vineyards, and the history. The evolving site improvements remain consistent with existing histories and reflect a highly relaxing and enriching guest experience unparalleled in the world.
