The rooms

Inside, the lines of nuns’ cells have been replaced by 12 large guest rooms that bring together contemporary design with wood beam ceilings, parquet floors, and exposed stone walls that are centuries old.

All the rooms have queen size beds, high ceilings, luxury fixtures and air conditioning. Many have large windows onto the stone lanes where village life is played out daily. From the top floor suites, you have sweeping views across the Val D’orcia to Montepulciano, Montefollonico and Monte Amiata.

Common areas include a large open library with an honor bar and reading chairs.

Behind the property is a private walled medieval garden, that forms a unique oasis inside the village, like a green piazza
