When American lawyer Michael L. Cioffi first laid eyes on the village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro in Tuscany, he was immediately smitten, and for good reason. The land is several millennia old—so rich in history and tradition that he couldn’t let the dilapidated buildings of the charming Italian town continue to ruin. Italian by heritage, Cioffi bought the property, furthering a longstanding affinity for Tuscany, and opened his impossibly stylish and rare boutique hotel, Monteverdi Tuscany, in 2012. Located in the postcard-perfect Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO Heritage site, he’s successfully created one of the most enchanting hotel properties on the globe.
