The story of Monteverdi Tuscany begins in Castiglioncello del Trinoro, a 900-year-old village in Tuscany’s stunning Val d’Orcia region of Italy. The vision we had for painstakingly restoring this hilltop village, and bringing new culinary offerings like our restaurant Oreade and our Enoteca, also had to be matched by a cultural Renaissance. Monteverdi for us had to be a place where intellectual curiosity, cultural exploration, and social interaction are nourished, and where modern comforts and amenities embrace you throughout your stay. No other destination in Tuscany integrates past and present with body and mind so harmoniously.
Life at Monteverdi Tuscany is enriched by our cultural heritage and opportunities. This region of Tuscany during the Renaissance was at the epicenter of the tremendous flourishing of intellectual and artistic life, and a gathering of the world’s leading artists, scientists, poets, and philosophers. New ways of understanding the world and what it means to be human are themes that grew out of this profound period – and provide the ultimate inspiration for Monteverdi today. We continue with this spirit by supporting cultural activities, including Italy’s only privately sponsored archaeological dig, and music and art events, like the Incontri in Terra di Siena, and Artists and Scholars-in-Residence program.
