Set at the foot of Monte Amiata (in the middle of a gorgeous nowhere) this tiny hamlet within beautifully fortified walls is as romantic as a medieval castle can get. It’s now a boutique hotel, with well-priced rooms and eagle-eye views. The restaurant (reservations are necessary) serves good local food and organic wine from the castle’s own vineyards.
