Nestled in the heart of Tuscany’s vineyards, overlooking green mountains, fields and the historic Val d’Orcia, Monteverdi Tuscany is a collection of exquisitely restored rental villas and a boutique hotel, seamlessly blended into the 12th century hamlet of Castiglioncello del Trinoro.
Monteverdi consists of three private villas and a boutique hotel with seven bedrooms—all blending medieval architecture with contemporary interior design and modern day amenities.
The reconstruction of the medieval structures incorporates indigenous wood, Tuscan flagstone and granite, and Carrara marble.
These materials provide Monteverdi with an authentic appearance that is fully grounded in the spirit of the Val d’Orcia—while the juxtaposition of original beams, arches and stairways with contemporary furnishings creates a perfect balance between a “sense of place” and the conveniences of modern life.
This is thanks to the talent of Ilaria Miani, the world-famous designer, who infused the interiors with her own tasteful style and eclectic sensibility.
Guest rooms and private villas
Ranging from two to six bedrooms, the villas are available for weekly rent.
They come with a state-of-the-art kitchen, where private chef will prepare authentic Tuscan cuisine, a wine cellar as well as custom-designed furniture and oversized marble baths.
The main guest accommodation consists of seven individually designed rooms. Like the restored villas, the rooms are done up in a masterful blend of the ancient and modern, with the ceilings supported by original wooden beams, and interiors that boast splendid art pieces.
The culinary experience
Monteverdi’s fresh and creative cuisine delight with locally grown herbs, olives and tomatoes, pecorino cheese made from the milk of sheep raised in the neighbouring Pienza, fresh local lamb, and even prosciutto cured from the wild boar that roam the surrounding woods.
Also, the wine cellars are well-stocked with the finest regional appellations—making the Monteverdi a marvelous escape for the food and wine lovers.
