Tuscany Historical Relais 70

Description

Just outside Montepulciano, a lovely small hotel or relais set in a historical villa in the Val d’Orcia in South Eastern Tuscany. Elegant rooms and suites tastefully furnished with antique furniture making your stay comfortable and relaxing. Some rooms take their name from the beautiful panorama out over Tuscany, that you can enjoy from the window.

The cellar, dating from the XIII century, is the oldest part of the villa. With its grottoes and galleries it hides the mystery of the ancient Etruscan people. The barrel vaults have always housed precious casks where the fruit of the vineyards is made noble.

Until the end of the 19th century, this lovely historical villa was the country residence of a noble family of Montepuciano, it was built in late sixteenth century as the wooden capitals and doorposts show. In 2000 the villa was restructured to form a beautiful relais, keeping the traditional Tuscan Decor.

Located just 5 minutes from village of Montepulicano, it is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Val d’Orcia in Tuscany.

Rooms

The Rooms are each individually themed from suites or a little cottage outside the main villa where privacy is ensured.
Restaurant is a charming, country style restaurant, elegant and, at the same time, informal recently opened also for guests not staying at the Villa.

Restaurant

The restaurant cuisine is inspired by both Tuscan and organic culinary traditions. Chef uses the products of the land creating delicious seasonal dishes with Tuscany’s world famous cured meats, Chianina beef, Cinta Senese, the cheeses of Pienza, and the vegetables and aromatic herbs grown in the Villa’s kitchen garden.

Particular attention is given to the choice of organic products which are mainly locally sourced, through an accurate selection of the best suppliers located in the area of Montepulciano. In particular, we use only Villa’s organic olive oil both for cooking and spicing which is a certified DOP olive oil.

The Gardens

The gardens are the highlight of the property, a peaceful place where is possible to escape from the frenetic life of the metropolitan cities and relax enjoying the Tuscan and Mediterranean weather at its best.

The villa has designed different garden rooms: such as the Tuscan garden immersed between olive trees and flowers which leads you to the infinity pool which has a specacular view out to Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. The Italian garden with a travertine fountain and white and red roses and other little gardens around the Villa where breakfast and the dinner are served.

The gardens change their colors and smells with the different seasons. In spring, it’s a sea of wild flowers while during the summer, the lavenders and the rosemary bloom and their perfumes surround the entire Villa.
