“Dreams of staying in a castle come true with this 11th Century fortress, with views of terracotta rooftops and Tuscan landscape. Comfortable rooms with tiled floors, wooden beams and natural tones. Full to the rafters with character. Ideal location for exploring this truly magical part of Italy.”

Hotel Review

This remote corner of the Maremma is way off the worn tourist track, but it’s a fascinating area and there is somewhere comfortable and stylish to stay in the form of this hotel which occupies part of an 11th-century fortress. Views from the rooms are fabulous.
