About Castello di Rocca
History meets decadent luxury, accompanied by the regal surrounds of the majestic Tuscan countryside. Welcome to the sheer opulence of Castello di Rocca. Set imperially on a hilltop, with commanding views of vineyards and olive trees, this restored castle is the crowning glory above the medieval streets of historic Cetona. Indeed, they almost appear to be prostrating themselves before it.
This 13th-century stronghold incorporates an elegant 18th-century villa. Bushes dramatically frame its entrance path through a vaulted tunnel whose niches contain Etruscan tombs. Theatrical lighting reveals an ancient amphitheatre that forms the first of numerous terraces.
You feel you should doff your cap as you enter the grand hall with an imposing crystal chandelier. Its succession of living spaces cannot but impress. A travertine marble staircase leads to seven large bedrooms, spread across two floors, all with impeccable marbled en suites. Every bedroom is sumptuously decorated, merging original antiques and fine fabrics.
The private swimming pool in the lush gardens has been crafted out of ancient Roman stones found in North Africa. There are several furnished outside areas to enjoy dining or entertaining while admiring the views that stretch to Mount Cetona and the Umbrian Hills.
You also have exclusive access to a separate accommodation. Here there's a further living room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and sauna. On its lower ground floor a vast room fit for a manor is ideal for throwing a party or celebrating a special occasion.
And staying at Castello di Rocca there's plenty to celebrate.
