For centuries cloistered nuns, looking for a respite from the world and a special place to feel closer to God, have lived and prayed on the hill where the monastery has been re built. The sacredness and the blissfulness of the site can still be felt today. Time seems to come to a stop, allowing guests to truly rest, rebalance, recharge and experience the genuine local way of life, taste exceptional wines, meditate, swim, walk, horseback ride and discover unspoiled Medieval villages, woods and beaches.
Covered living area
Monastic meets majestic
The over four meters high fireplace open into the living room: a place of pleasure, of indulgence, among sofas, rugs, books, art and windows overlooking the valley and the sea.
At the very heart of the estate, a fully equipped cutting edge stainless steel kitchen provides chefs and food lovers the ideal stage to prepare and taste Italian and Tuscan recipes made with local products.
A resting place for queens and kings
The estate’s credo is that good sleep is essential for the wellness of the body as much as space and beauty are important for the wellness of the mind. Each suite is a unique experience of design, style and comfort where no detail is left to chance. From a system of air circulation to cool off naturally the temperature during summer nights on top of the latest air conditioning to under floor heating to allow guests to walk around bare foot even in winter, traditional large stone and brick fireplace, private balcony and roof deck terrace with breath taking views, king-size mattress fitted with organic linen bed sheets, oversized bathroom, bathtub or shower room, high-end toiletries, scented candles and natural fragrance diffusers rigorously made in Italy.
A bridge to the sea
Stone, wood and iron, like in a medieval song, define and enrich the ochre colors of the Maremman landscape, while the ever changing blue of the swimming pool handpainted tiles becomes a bridge to the Mediterranean Sea.
The kingdom of wellness
It is impossible is to truly convey the estates sense of peace and bliss. One can only travel with the imagination back in time to see the Medieval nuns living in harmony with nature and its rhythms on its hill surrounded by forests and fronting the sea. Here guests experience a full, simple, healthy and peaceful life, long forgotten.
The soul of the estate
The magic atmosphere of the estates stone vaulted wine cellars offers a unique experience for exceptional wine tastings and wonderful dinners in the secret passageways of the castle.
As nature intended
Founded on the top of a hill surrounded by forests and facing the sea, this is a privileged estate with minimum impact on the environment. Through the use of Roman construction techniques the consumption of water and energy have been minimized and the heating and cooling of floors and walls made more efficient working with nature itself. Vineyards and olive groves all around the estate, orchards and vegetable gardens within and outside the stonewall provide daily the freshest food.
