At Castello del Nero hotel in Tuscany, you’ll walk around wide-eyed: this 12th-century castle has mediaeval frescoes, marble-and-mosaic bathrooms and a very tempting spa. Dine on wild boar ragù or lobster ravioli in the elegant restaurant, then walk it all off in the hotel’s rolling 740 acres.
Just remembering this hotel’s serene spa makes us relax and breathe deeply: an outdoor heated vitality pool surrounded by greenery, whisper-quiet treatment rooms, fragrant Espa products and expert masseuses who only need to look at a knot for it to unfurl (well, sort of). Try one of the signature treatments: the Castello del Nero Relaxation Ritual; an olive oil and pink-clay head massage; the sea salt and rosemary exfoliation.
