Castello di Vicarello has received several high profile awards and prestigious accolades over the years including:
“We felt that Castello di Vicarello truly embodied all of the things we love and wanted our family and friends to experience: incredible beauty; comfort and warmth; delicious local food and wine; a unique experience; and most of all a place that really felt like “us”
The ceremony was located in an olive grove on the property. I loved how quiet and intimate it felt- each row only had two chairs in it, so I really got see each and every person as I walked down the aisle. ”
Kristine & James
“While in Tuscany we were inspired by the natural beauty of Castello Di Vicarello, the surrounding countryside and the clean simplicity of life among the rolling hills. The old stone castle and its olive groves were a stark contrast to the modern day, noisy metropolis, taking us back to an era found within history books, a time where man was the salt of the earth, attuned to the natural world around him.”
