Thermal Castle in Brunello di Montalcino Area
Suspended between hills and vineyards in Val D'Orcia
Set on a hilltop in the Southern Tip of Montalcino, this a thousand-year-old Castle in the heart of Tuscany, with a 360° view on Brunello vineyards in Val d’Orcia.
An open window on the landscape of history. Medieval Fortalice of the XI century, the most ancient visible part today is the watch-out tower of the XII century that was theatre of fights between the Republic of Siena and the one of Florence. The principal loggia is of the Renaissance, epoch in which the castle was turned into a residential villa.
In the same period the Castle was depicted in the geographic papers painted by Ignazio Danti at the Vatican. A copy of them does exist into the library of the castle. Instead of taste-medieval mole is the back side built in slow epoch. A court opened to the routes of the art. The road that follows the cost of the castle at valley, it is marked on ancient geographic papers with the Via Clodia name, the old Roman road of the first century A.C., in which the southern Etruria was joining Rome.
In the vicinity strokes there are visible hips of the Via Francigena, route covered by writers, artists, famous brigands and pilgrims who, in the Middle Ages, were going to Rome for the jubilee. In the adjacent zones of the castle important Etruscan finds were found, today preserved in the Montalcino museum. Indulged by now in ruin in 1997 the castle was bought from a private family and they commissioned the reorganization turning the castle into a luxury Relais, preserving his original structure and keeping the characteristics of an ancient House of the Countryside alive.
Symbolic and Civil Ceremonies are allowed on the ground of the castle and we would recommend the following locations: Round Terrace, Sunset Terrace and for smaller groups up to 60 people the Pool Terrace Suite.
For catholic weddings instead we do highly suggest the wonderful Abbey of Sant'Antimo.
