Monteverdi Tuscany

Image Gallery

Monteverdi is a world-class collection of exquisitely restored Tuscan rental villas and boutique hotel in Castigliocello del Trinoro, Siena.  Located almost equidistant between Rome and Florence, Monteverdi is a haven for the mind and sense: a place that offers visitors privacy or community, peace or activity, depenfing on your mood. 

It is a landscape both warm and mysterious, calm and wonderful. Its green mountains, deep valley and enveloping sense of peace are older than history. 

This living stone village of images and shadows, built in the 12th Century. Rustic effects and sophisticated comforts. Art and Architecture. Food and Wine. Music and other muses.  A haven of intense beauty, quiet and serene, where both body and mind are nurtured and stimulated.  A “lay monastery” as Bernard Berenson might say.  In one word, Monteverdi.

The Private Villas at Monteverdi

Each villa offers well appointed, oversized marble baths, a wine cellar featuring the finest regional appellations, and a state-of-the-art, fully equipped kitchen. Superbly finished cabinets and bookshelves, sophisticated light fixtures, hand carved sinks and showers, custom-designed furniture, and hand-dyed linens from Italy, Egypt, Tunisia, and Spain combine to create an environment in each of the villas that is both luxurious and eminently livable.

A reverence for nature is reflected in the restaurant’s menu, which is dedicated to farm-to-table eating, and sources only the freshest local Tuscan food for its recipes. The view over the magnificent valley and mountains of the Val d'Orcia will visually map the distance food has travelled.

CAFFE MONTEVERDI

The more informal Caffe Monteverdi, in the heart of the village, is also open daily for lunch and aperitivi and offers a variety of fresh garden salads, the finest regional meats and cheeses, and just-baked panini and crostini.

For those who would like to learn more about the area and its culinary treasures, you can schedule an excursion with their chefs to the farms and local markets to select your own vegetables, fresh cheeses and the finest cuts of meat.
