The Deal: What's better than waking up to the sweet melodies of Tuscan songbirds in your 10th century castle suite? Doing it for free, of course. As part of their grand opening on July 1, the five-star Castello di Casole is offering a Stay 4 Pay 3 package in one of their 41 suites situated in a renovated medieval castle in the Tuscan countryside. Guests that book the package will enjoy four nights in a guest suite for the price of three, along with breakfast in the hotel's Ristorante Tosca, gym access, and free amenities like parking, WiFi, soft drinks at the mini bar, and pay-per-view (should you decide to stay in your room). Access to the Essere Spa will also be included when the Spa opens in September.
Timbers Resorts has spent years renovating the castle, sourcing local materials and building techniques to give guests a modern luxury experience inspired by centuries old design. Activities like hiking, horseback riding, vineyard tours, and bird-watching expeditions in the area are available to the intrepid (or just curious).
The Details: Reservations for this package must be made by June 30, 2012, and travel must be completed by March 31, 2013. Prices start at about $714/night including 10% VAT and service.
Good to Know: If all this luxury wears you out, rejuvenate with a lazy afternoon spent in the castle's spa, a couple of morning yoga classes, or an in-room massage.
