In Tuscany there is a beautiful villa that has been restored. With only seven rooms, this exclusive hotel has married modern furnishings with the traditional style. The half-ancient wooden beams hold up the ceiling as you sit in front of a 200 year-old fireplace next to a stone wall that was once part of the medieval village. You can take in the view of Mt. Cetona, Radicofani and the Val d’ Orcia, then go for a walk in the private garden before returning to take a bath in an 18th Century copper tub. Each room is also an art gallery boasting fine contemporary pieces from all over the world. The property is full of sunny courtyards and there is a fragrant lavender garden by the pool. The local village was home to Renaissance genius, Monteverdi and his magical music is sometimes performed here. Explore Val d’Orcia - the world heritage site that is one of the most beautiful areas of the world.
