“On my first visit to Reschio, I was overwhelmed to a point of breathlessness. I’ve been to a few gorgeous places in my time, but as the layers of this place are unpeeled, you become truly staggered by its vision and its beauty.”
Located where Umbria meets Tuscany, and masterminded by Count Benedikt and Donna Nencia Bolza, The Reschio Estate is a fantasy world of history, stunning architecture, breathtaking design, thoughtful ecology, and exquisite cuisine. At its heart, is the 36-suite Hotel Castello di Reschio, painstakingly created within the walls of an 11th-century hilltop citadel. It’s not just the hotel’s antiques and paintings. It’s the carefully thought-out mélange of architectural and design details, from the most artfully imagined faucet, to the velvet-lined boxes where plugs and phone cords are secreted, to the scarlet “C di R” cross-stitched on the bed linen, to the open fireplaces and array of antiques, to the Bolza-designed furniture forged and hewn by local artisans. The hotel features a restaurant whose terrace offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills. Guests sip local wines in the Palm Court as they listen to a jazz pianist. A dip in the heated waters of the medieval, candlelit Bath House pool is followed by a customized spa treatment. The outdoor infinity pool offers secluded seating areas.
