For those intrigued with sampling the sublime flavors of Tuscany, nothing but the genuine article will suffice. And what could be more authentic than an honest-to-goodness Medieval Tuscan village? That's the setting Massimo Ferragamo, of the legendary Ferragamo fashion family, has transformed into his world class resort, Castiglion del Bosco, a Rosewood Resort. This quaint and charming borgo, little changed over eight centuries, sprawls across some 5,000 stunning acres, serving up majestic perspectives on the Tuscan countryside and affording spectacular views of unforgettable sunsets. It is dotted with vineyards, olive groves, 17th and 18th Century farmhouses and the ruins of a fairy-tale-like, centuries-old castle. Hiking and running paths ribbon for miles through densely wooded forests of the Val d'Orcia. Little wonder this is the only property in all of Italy to earn the coveted Rosewood imprimatur.
