As a guest or owner on these fabled lands one can not help to consider their own place in history.
A Storied Past
The estate’s namesake castle dates back to the late 10th century when it was erected and christened the Querceto Manor.
During the 1800’s the noble Bargagli family of Siena assembled properties surrounding the Querceto Manor, and the estate grew to include more than 30 farms rich in wheat, corn, olives, grapes and livestock.
Families and sharecroppers worked the estate until the 1960s, when it was purchased by the Earl Edoardo Visconti di Modrone Erba, who hosted movie stars and luminaries of the jet set. Timbers Resorts acquired the Tuscan estate and began developing Castello di Casole in the year 2005 and has gently coaxed it into the modern era.
