Monteverdi

Monteverdi

In a world of its own. You literally and uniquely insert yourself into the life of the living twelfth-century stone hamlet of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. High in the fresh-air of summer nights—at 2,400 feet— a twenty-room hotel dots the streets, alive with 14 full time inhabitants—many of whom seem from central casting—with their welcoming Tuscan faces and comfortable Tuscan pace. The hotel is spread though the town: some rooms in various houses, the restaurant dug into the rock of the hill, the enoteca and bar perched over the valley. All rooms have spectacular interior design: Elegant Monastic. There is a hilltop pool set in a garden, with eagles-only views. Every detail is quality plus. Bedrooms and baths of your dreams. Vast range of accommodations from single to six-bedroom villas. The restaurant run by the irresistible Giancarla Bordoni uses “the best, freshest and most savory ingredients in the world.” The dishes she turns them into are amazing.

They also have cooking classes and artists in residence. Does more exist?
