Hidden among the rolling hills of Tuscany lies COMO Castello Del Nero, Tuscany — in easy driving distance of the Renaissance cities of Florence and Siena. At the heart of this historic 740-acre estate is a twelfth-century castle layered with Renaissance frescoes and contemporary design, with interiors by Paola Navone. The resort offers Michelin-starred dining experiences with estate-to-table Tuscan produce, as well as meaningful wellness therapies at COMO Shambhala Retreat.
There are 50 rooms and suites at COMO Castello Del Nero, each designed by Paola Navone to reflect an airy, pared-back aesthetic. Interiors are spacious and cool-toned, with 19 Estate Rooms, 13 Tavarnelle Rooms, 10 Tavarnelle Suites, and three Heritage Suites, many of which overlook the surrounding hills and lakes.
There are three dining venues at COMO Castello Del Nero, ranging from the Michelin-starred La Torre, to the casually informal La Taverna. Each dining venue uses carefully sourced produce from around the Tuscan region to produce nourishing and flavoursome cuisine.
La Torre is a Michelin-starred restaurant overseen by Executive Chef, Giovanni Luca Di Pirro. Dishes are made with the finest Tuscan ingredients, sourced from local farmers, or directly from the estate’s organic garden. The cuisine showcases inventive Italian and seasonal inspiration, with an ever-changing menu ranging through spring’s crisp greens and fragrant herbs, to autumn’s rich truffles and wild boar. In summer, diners can choose to eat al fresco on the terrace, overlooking the verdant landscape and spectacular sunsets of Chianti. Reservations are required.
La Taverna is situated in the castle’s original kitchen, dating back 900 years, when a small army of servants would have laboured to serve magnificent feasts to the noble Del Nero family. Now, the atmosphere is comfortable and family-friendly, with a large, open fire giving the room a cosy glow in the winter months. The restaurant offers a selection of Tuscan signature dishes made with fresh, local ingredients and an emphasis on simple dishes with excellent flavour. Our expert mixologists can prepare a range of enticing cocktails, whilst Champagne, reserve cognacs, grappas and whiskies are also available from the drinks menu.
Pavilion is open throughout the summer and offers all-day dining overlooking the spectacular hills, vineyards and olive groves that characterise Tuscany. Menus feature Mediterranean cuisine as well as international favourites and COMO’s signature dishes.
