Hotel Location: Castiglioncello Del Trinoro in Tuscany, Italy
Castiglioncello del Trinoro, home to Monteverdi Tuscany, is midway between Rome and Florence in southern Tuscany, Italy. This medieval hamlet overlooks the historic Val d’Orcia in the province of Siena, and is where our villas, twelve widely dispersed hotel rooms, restaurants, spa, art gallery and cultural and culinary events come together.
The winding gravel roads which crisscross the region offer the opportunity to set a brake on the race against time. One of these unpaved roads leads you to an altitude of 750 meters where Monteverdi shyly awaits you. A discreet sign indicates the hotel’s reception area, nestling in a converted barn.
Ways of life, such as wine and cheese making, have remained largely unchanged for centuries in the region. Sheep grazing on the hillsides provide the milk for pecorino cheese, while local vineyards produce the grapes that will become the finest wines in the world.
Our location is one of our greatest strengths. From Monteverdi, it is an easy drive to the most renowned Tuscan hill towns: Siena, Montepulciano, Orvieto and Pienza, to name only a few. Bigger cities such as Florence and Rome are equally available for day trips by catching the train from the nearby town of Chiusi. Many of our guests like our mountaintop location for its bosky hiking trails and its verandas that frame the vastness of the green Tuscan hills. Others prefer to drive to a nearby village or city for shopping, and exploring art and history.
Even the most seasoned traveler can sometime lose his way, and a member of the Monteverdi family is always available to direct you to our village. We can assure you that as soon as you arrive at Castiglioncello, you will promptly realize that the less traveled road has made all the difference.
From our Tuscan village, all is possible during your stay at Monteverdi Tuscany.
