HOTEL CASTELLO DI RESCHIO
History & Story
Encompassing a 10th-century castle, the Estate was bought in 1994 by Count Antonio Bolza, intent on bringing this forgotten corner of Italy back to life. In the 25 years since, Count Bolza’s son, London-trained architect, Count Benedikt, and his wife, Donna Nencia, have set about exquisitely restoring over half of the buildings on the Estate in immaculate detail, transforming them one by one into one-of-a-kind private homes.
Over the past three years, he has been renovating the Estate’s jewel in the crown, the 10th-century castle where Benedikt, Nencia and their five children lived for a decade. With a long time dream of restoring it into a hotel, the Castello will once again become the beating heart of the Estate, housing 36 rooms and suites, a restaurant, bathhouse, bar, library, pool and different intriguing spaces for private events, concerts and impromptu get-togethers.
New opening, Castle restoration started in 2016.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
The beauty of Reschio is to be found in every detail, from the incredible individually designed rooms, to the healthy life style of the surrounding Estate, to all the facilities available such as the purebred Spanish horses at the stables, the wild life, the bathhouse, the synergic gardens, the foraging and to the level of service.
On the border of Umbria and Tuscany, in the green heart of central Italy. Located close to Cortona and Perugia, just above Lake Trasimeno, the Estate lies in a beautiful valley commanding the splendour of a landscape which has remained unchanged for centuries. It sits in the hilly, romantic landscape so typical of Umbria, with its white roads lined with Cypresses trees, olives groves, vineyards and scattered farmhouses, overlooked only by extensive Mediterranean oak and chestnut woods.
