Benvenuti and the warmest of welcomes at your hideaway
Castello del Sole is a luxury resort like no other. Because luxury means arriving and being able to indulge completely in unique surroundings. In the midst of 140 hectares of breathtaking nature, including a private beach, the Terreni alla Maggia winery with agricultural specialities and a bird sanctuary, you will find everything that you’ve been looking for.
We are closing for the winter season on 29 October 2023. But don't worry, we will be open again in no time. 27 March 2024 is just around the corner.
